How do you approach shooting a wedding ?
I approach all of my clients weddings , with the same frame of mind. Capture those truly once of a lifetime images you cherish, while having fun doing it , It's simple really right? We'll yes and no - For me I take it one second at a time and watch how the day unfolds, I am there to capture the coming and goings of each wedding and each wedding will have different aspects to their special day. No two wedding are ever the same. My main goal really is I try to blend into the background as the day unfolds , Capture all of those forever moments, while gently giving guidance when needed and helping to keep you on track and on time. For me with each and everyone of our weddings, I want you to enjoy your day and not stress over the "what if's".

What type of editing do you provide? Can you make me slimmer, make me look younger?

We provide a basic natural edit to all of your images, we clean them up a bit, and this is a question we get asked often. We shoot exactly what is in front of us, and our goal is to capture the love and joy of your wedding day just the way we see it. We want your wedding day to be your wedding day, not over processed, and different, so we are unable to make any of our clients smaller, younger , slim out arms etc, We capture you as you are in that moment. We carefully sort through the images and filter out duplicate shots, blinking/open mouths, flash misfires and any unflattering expressions, so all you see is the very best images of your day.
