Services From Timeless Memories Photography
This is the way I shoot: totally naturally. I don’t ‘set up’ any shots, I don’t put you into poses; I capture the real-life, true moments of your day, observing and recording those moments as they happen. After all, when you look back at a photo where you’ve been posed, you just remember being posed; when you look at a natural photo, you remember how you were feeling. Some people may call this ‘reportage’, others ‘photojournalism’, but names don’t really matter – what does matter is that your wedding is one of the most special days of your lives; not a ‘photoshoot’. I won’t be carting around huge flashes and stands, asking you to wait around for ages as I set up equipment, getting you to put one hand here and one arm there – I photograph you and your guests totally naturally. We can still do some group shots, of course, but these are best kept to a minimum so that I can get back to getting those candid moments. Even when I spend a small amount of time with just the two of you for some ‘couple time’ (just 10 – 15 mins is enough time to get lots of different natural and real photos, I don’t want to take you away from your guests for hours) this is still un-posed; I want you to just enjoy being with each other – you’ve just got married! – and I’ll capture you naturally, together.
What’s the definition of a creative wedding photographer? Well, I’d say that it’s someone who wants to capture each scene in a non-standard or unique way. Be this down to a creative composition, unusual angle, depth of field, use of light – or whatever means – the end result is a set of images where each frame can stand as a strong, artistic image in its own right. My aim is to create images throughout the entire day that are wall-hangable, not just images of the two of you.
