Creative Wedding Portaits

Wedding portrait at Dodmoor House

I LOVE two things above all when photographing weddings – real, unposed moments, and creating beautiful portraits.

I work as hard as I can to provide you with both of these.

This page is all about why I love to create unique wedding portraits.

You can read all about how I capture real moments here.

Why I LOVE taking creative portraits

For most of a wedding day, I capture the moments in a manner that makes it feel like I'm not even there. However, during the short period of time when we take portraits, we have the opportunity to create beautiful, natural photographs.

During weddings, this can also be a lovely time for the couple to spend a few quiet moments away from their guests. From my experience, couples often prefer to have a break from the crowd to take their portraits, as this is when they can truly be themselves in front of the camera, leading to more captivating images.

Many brides and grooms may feel nervous about having their picture taken, which is completely understandable. However, when they see that there's nothing to worry about, they can relax and enjoy the experience, which is reflected in the final images.

How long do portrait sessions take?

While I have a deep passion for capturing portraits, I understand the importance of not taking too much time away from your loved ones during the wedding day. That's why I typically request two brief portrait sessions of just twenty minutes each.

The first session would typically occur immediately after the ceremony but prior to your wedding meal. The second session could be scheduled either during sunset or in the evening, allowing me to utilise lighting and flashes to create stunning one-of-a-kind photographs.

We dont know how to pose - is this a problem?!

One of the most frequently expressed concerns I encounter is "I don't know how to pose" or "I feel awkward in front of the camera." However, this sentiment is shared by nearly every couple I have ever photographed. I only require that you stand next to each other. I may ask you to engage in lighthearted activities to capture authentic moments, but I won't ask you to pose in the traditional sense.

It's crucial for your portraits to appear natural, so I aim to make you feel at ease and comfortable, allowing you to simply be yourselves. I'm confident that every bride and groom featured on this page initially felt the same way, but they need not worry as this is a normal and natural feeling.
