Relaxed and creative wedding photography

Organic, classy and timeless'

I have a natural spontaneous approach to wedding photography.   Specialising in the candid documentary style, that captures the uniqueness of your special day.  I have a more relaxed story telling approach to my photography, creating a portfolio of timeless images reflecting special moments, emotions and treasured memories.  My images are relaxed, modern and natural and by keeping formal and posed shots to a minimum you have more time to relax, be yourselves, enjoy one another, your guests and your day!

Am I right for you?

Yes, if you hate having your photo taken, perhaps are not a fan of posed images and too much photoshop editing.  You are after natural stylish, fuss free images to capture your day.  I understand that each couple’s requirements are different and I like to embrace this individuality by creating a collection of images that reflects the couple and their wedding day as it unfolds. 

What happens when you book.

Once you have chosen me as your photographer I shall confirm the booking in writing.  In the months leading up to your wedding, you may want to pop me the odd email or phone call with a question or idea - this is great, in fact the more input you have the better.  We will get together a few weeks before the wedding to go through the day and discuss your preferences, thoughts and ideas over a cuppa and get to know each other.

On the bog day, I will be working in an unobtrusive style with next to no fuss, my aim is to ensure that you are happy and spend as long as possible with your guests and enjoy your special day (after all no one enjoys waiting around whilst another photo is arranged).  I help to ensure that your day runs smoothly and both you and your guests feel comfortable. If you choose to have formal photographs, these are kept to a minimum and are fuss free.   At a time of day to suit you, when you both need some ‘time out’ to absorb the day together and take it all in, we shall go for a walk and seek out some beautiful spots to have some natural, romantic images of you both. 

Within 3 weeks of your wedding you will receive a beautifully packaged USB of your images both in high quality full resolution (for printing) and low resolution (for social media). Shortly after this I shall email you a link to your beautiful online gallery with all of your images for you to share with your friends and relatives.  If you decide you would like to order any wall art or a beautifully handmade Italian wedding album (there is never any pressure from me to buy), I can guide you through the process with unlimited help and advice.

What are the benefits?

By having me capture your wedding day, at times you will almost forget I am there.  However I shall be there on hand throughout the day to guide you if needed, stand back when appropriate and capture the day as it evolves.  You will feel relaxed with me, as I am relaxed and you will enjoy your day and your guests, as I will not take over.  The most frequent feedback I receive from my couples is my friendly nature, relaxed and unobtrusive style and my beautiful story telling images of their wedding day.  Some that have initially stated they hate having their photo taken even say they eventually enjoy it by the end of the day!  I have made friends with many of my couples and have been back for maternity, newborn and family shoots as a consequence of my style and excellent customer service.

I am based in Sudbury, Suffolk, near the Essex/Suffolk border but I am happy to travel throughout Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire or further afield if required!  

My job on your wedding day is to work for you and capture your wedding in it's own unique way. Please feel free to contact me either by phone or email for an informal chat!
