The images below shows some of my favourite recent weddings – amazing days with amazing people (complete weddings upon request).

No two weddings are ever the same and my goal is to make each wedding look unique. Having said that, I’d like to briefly elaborate on a few main parts of your wedding day:

Preparations

We start with shots of your preparations early in the morning. This part I shoot in a “reportage” style, which means I will capture each moment as it happens in real time without anything being staged. This can be anything from the mother of the bride making the final touches to her daughter’s hair to the best man giving the groom a pep talk! I will be as invisible as possible, I’m not part of the action myself – I’m am just a silent observer. My goal is to tastefully document (and not interfere!) your day with my photographs.

I know how much time, effort and money goes into every wedding. I find it important to also photograph the venue, the table decoration, the flowers and even the car. All of these things are part of your wedding day and deserve a place in your wedding album.

I’ll also aim to capture as many natural shots of the ceremony itself as possible. This will include all the classic moments from the bride walking down the aisle to the rings, vows and even grandma’s tears. Every shot will be taken with subtlety and professionalism. Furthermore, I will be as unobtrusive as possible to guarantee a truly natural, memorable image. I’m solely documenting what’s happening – and to me it is an art to do so in a tasteful, timeless manner.

Ceremony

I’ll also aim to capture as many natural shots of the ceremony itself as possible. This will include all the classic moments from the bride walking down the aisle to the rings, vows and even grandma’s tears. Every shot will be taken with subtlety and professionalism and I will be as unobtrusive as possible to guarantee a truly natural, memorable image. I’m solely documenting what’s happening – and to me it is an art to do so in a tasteful, timeless manner. Confetti shots as the newly-weds exit the church or register office are always a lot of fun to take. No matter how small or large the group is I’d always recommend taking a few group shots before the afternoon/evening festivities begin.

Portraits

The next part of my wedding photography involves the “formal” shots, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be a lot of fun! First up, I’ll work one on one with the couple to capture all the quintessential wedding shots, including romantic snaps outside their favourite locations, the first kiss, the loving gazes into each other’s eyes and more. One of my specialties are environmental portraits. These are pictures showing the bride and groom in a wider context, be it an urban or nature environment. These photos look great on large scale canvas prints but can also be used for Thank You cards.

Afternoon

Next up I’ll get the family involved, so this will give all the guests in your wedding entourage their chance to shine! We’ll take some group shots, some serious ones, some fun ones and whatever else you want to experiment with. My goal is to to create a comprehensive portfolio of your big day.

When the sun is setting it is time for another quick golden hour photoshoot before you will cut the cake and perform your first dance. Party pictures should be wild, loud and crazy – and I’ll be right there with my camera! I always try to conclude my work with one last beautiful creative shot of you two.

Speeches

During the speeches – just like during the ceremony – I usually shoot with a very long lens and my camera shutter set to silent.  This allows me to capture both the speaker and the reactions of the audience from a distance without disturbing.

Cutting the Cake

After the dinner and the speeches it’s usually time for cutting the cake. I’ll quickly show you how to stand so it’ll be fun and look good on your photos.

The First Dance

I have a complex multi-flash light setup which I completely hide in the DJ (or Band) rig. Even during disco lights I will have my own perfect light whenever I take a photo. People usually think my flashes are a disco strobes but they they actually belong to the photographer. Using this technique I’m able to create interesting photographs during the first dance and the party afterwards.

Night

As day turns into night I’d like to ‘kidnap’ you one last time for a quick sunset or even night photoshoot. Let’s be creative! A silhouette photo against the sunset might look just as romantic as a moonlight dreamy portrait. If necessary I will set up multiple lights outside and pre-calibrate everything beforehand. This way we can make some impressive and creative shots within just a couple of minutes. These will definitely look great printed on canvas or used for thank you cards.
