THE PARTY: I am a documentary photographer. Even when I’m not working you’ll find me quietly observing life through the lens. I believe that everything is inseparably connected with everything else and my style of photography is about capturing the space in-between.
Documentary photography is very different to traditional, posed photography. It’s about observing the event as it unfolds and photographing it. You do not pose or orchestrate moments.
I don’t carry a lot of gear. There’ll be no lighting rig and swag of assistants. It’ll just be me and my trusty Nikon’s roaming around looking for those magical moments to reveal themselves.
I appreciate that most events and weddings will have some formal photography but please consider keeping these to a minimum. Too much formal photography interrupts the opportunity to capture authentic moments.
THE AFTER PARTY (aka post-production): I don’t just take photos, I also make photos. What does that mean? It means every photograph you receive will have gone through the Lisa White test. I personally edit and process every one of the selected images to ensure you receive the very best photographs. Sure, this is all included in my flat-fee pricing packages but more than that it’s something I love doing.
We can all take a photo, but to go beyond the surface, beyond the tangible things and the pretty shapes, it takes experience. It takes years of experience to capture that je ne sais quoi. (translation: a quality that cannot be described or named easily)
Photography has taught me to slow down, to quietly observe everything and to wait for those moments of truth to reveal themselves.
