There are a lot of wedding photographers out there but I like to think of what I do as a photographer is a little different. I focus on the emotion, the environment using a blend of styles.
So how do I make this happen?
Firstly I love to use natural light, so you could say I am a natural wedding photographer or perhaps a ‘natural light wedding photographer’. Utilising what light we have is both a challenge and a pleasure because it gives us the most dramatic and beautiful backdrops.
I also like to refer to myself as a ‘fine art wedding photographer’, this term is one that is bounded about these days with little insight into what it actually means. For me what it means is to create emotive and soulful imagery and the Lake District really lends itself to this notion, coupled with dramatic natural light and framing so that it creates an artwork rather than just a snapshot.
Lastly, the most important element is you; the clients, and you being completely relaxed. I only want the best photographs of you so that it is both a true record but also because these images are an honour for me to take. I want you to love the images I give to you for the rest of your lives, to show to your family, your children and to future generations. This is what I importantly refer to as your ‘visual legacy’.
