SHRINKING VIOLET PHOTOGRAPHY

Candid wedding photography

Candid wedding photography allows your day to flow and gives me permission to run around and capture the genuine moments - in all their unapologetic glory! This is the one morning where you’re going to wake up with your nerves shredded, drink bubbles for breakfast and a couple of hours later be transformed into a pait of BobbyDazzlers.

It’s a zip wire of a day, a constant stream of huge emotions, candid little moments and narratives involving your family, your friends, your relationships…the very fabric of you. I don’t do awkward posing, military drill or face-ache photographs Cheese is for cheesecake. I just want you to be you on your day.

HOW I WORK

You’ve just got married, there’s tears, laughter, the kids are manic, there’s more than one social hand grenade at the party and your Best (wo)man is lucky to be alive. The last thing I want to do at this point is line you all up and lose the momentum. So I just let you get on with it. I move around a lot, I give you space, I ask you to look at each other and not the camera and I try and keep the formal photographs to as short a period of time as possible and have fun whilst doing them. Everybody is a little awkward and self conscious to begin with but a relaxed and natural approach produces genuine moments rather than the stiff, formal and overstaged. Or you can choose to keep a completely candid approach, it’s your day, so do it your way!

People skills are just as important as photography skills.

I AM NOT A SHOUTY PHOTOGRAPHER!

I’ll love your dress…but I’ll love it a lot more when you’re flinging it around the dancefloor. 

 

I BLEND IN..THAT DOES NOT MAKE ME ‘BEIGE’!

MY Approach

 

 

 I would consider myself an extroverted introvert with my fair share of social awkwardness….this works in your favour!

I like being around people but I don’t always have to talk and I’m definitely not a shouty photographer. A lot of the time I’m preoccupied with and looking over your shoulder for a parrallel line, shade or shard of light. I also love architecture, landscapes, moody weather and want to incorporate your chosen venue into your images so sometimes I’m just too far away to worry about.
