I've been there, and have personally experienced the struggles at my own wedding. You just want to relax and enjoy your day however you know that without photos you will forget those special moments. I also know the pain of being in front of the camera, in being camera shy myself (I know ironic).
This is I have adopted a candid natural style of photography so that the whole process is comfortable for you and your guests. And in being an ex-contemporary dancer, I can ninja my way through any space, you won't even notice I'm there.
Family is important to you, and I understand the importance of group shots, and by using a mixture of traditional with candid, we will make sure to get everyone you want in there. Though I do recommend to keep these shots to a minimum.
Of course, let us not forget about you TWO. The day will be going by so quickly, and everyone will want a piece of you. Spending a short time on a newlyweds shoots is really important in my opinion. This time is just for YOU! You will take that moment to bask in each other's presence and embrace. You won't need to do much else, apart from just be you and enjoy each other's presence. I will do the rest.
Now I'm pretty much up open for all your quirky ideas, Do you Want Smoke Bombs? Fly away on a hot air ballon? Skydive? Climb a Mountain? or organise a game of Quidditch? Your ideas are crucial, so I am here devoid of ego to give you what you want.
An Engagement shoot, for me, is all about celebrating your love and your life outside of the wedding day.
It's a representation of your experiances as a couple.
That's why I like to keep it very natural, taking the time to learn about you and your love story and so that I can capture that on camera.
If you are camera shy, don't worry, as I have a repertoire of activities to get you moving and engaging naturally, eliciting real happy emotions.
Proposals can be quite daunting, I know, I 've been there (I proposed to my now husband).
That's why you will have my full support. We will take the time to plan your chosen spot, and discretely communicate up until your proposal.
On the day, I will be there hiding in plain sight ready to capture that very unique moment when they say 'YES' !
Afterward, you'll both be brimming with excitement, so it's the best time to take a few shots to celebrate your engagement. As I also know you will be dying to tell your friends and family, I deliver your photos within 24hours as well as give you 2x instant print photos to take home with you right away.
