Information For Shot differently

I like to capture the actual day. Not an orchestrated version of it but the real events the, real emotions and all the amazing memories that come with them.

I've been shooting weddings for the last 12 years. I started out on my own when I was 19 and as you can imagine, found it hard to get work at the start. People were, understandably, reluctant to rely on a 19 year old for such an important event. That soon changed though and recommendations started to come through.

Due to me starting out relatively young, I never worked for another photographer. I think this is why, in a lot of ways I have a different outlook than other photographers when it comes to weddings. I don't restrict couples to an eight hour shoot for example, but start at Bridal Prep and shoot through 'til at least the First Dance and usually the party as it gets going in earnest. This makes sense to me as it's the only real way to capture the whole day.

I also never really went in for the staged photos, they're necessary often to keep parents happy, and they do offer a record of the day, but I'm not a big fan and tend to get the formal shots done and dusted quite quickly. That way you can actually enjoy the day. Spending it with friends rather than posing in front of a camera, and it works for me as the best photos are caught on the hoof. You have to be on the ball as a photographer but that's half the fun.

Perfect Photographer for a Perfect Day
We used Ben for our wedding in October 2021, and we are over the moon with the level of service and photographs he has provided. Our photographs exceeded everything we had hoped they would be. We had numerous compliments about Ben, from his professionalism right down to his sense of humour, which really made people feel at ease and relaxed around him and capture the natural photographs we wanted. Ben was a pinnacle point of the day, we have already recommended him to family and friends, and will continue to do so.
Thank you so much for being a part of our journey.

We've already reccomended you to friends.
Dear Ben

We both wanted to say a big thank you for the lovely wedding photos and your hard work taking and editing the photo. We were keen to avoid too much standing around with the group photos and were impressed about how efficient you were. you made us feel relaxed about having photos taken, fitted in really well with our guests and took some really natural shots which are perfect memories of our day. We also thought the USB stick and presentation box was a nice touch, and we've already reccomended you to some friends!
Thank you again!
Katherine and Chris
