my first wedding!

So, quite a while ago now my friend Annette asked if I would photograph her wedding. Knowing me as well as she did she gave me PLENTY of time to get used to the idea so I could get all of my panic out of the way first.

I have to say I was really nervous. It was the first time I'd ever done anything like this and I was still getting my head around my Canon 5D II. I bought a flash and lots of memory cards and a spare battery and got extra prepared like the slightly anxious nerd I am.

The brief was to capture the day as it unfolded in my style of photography that Annette had become a big (well my biggest) fan of! STRICTLY NO POSED CHEESY SET UP SHOTS! This was a perfect brief as it would allow me to observe, anticipate and simply tell the story of the day.  

It was an amazing experience and I loved every minute of it! I don't see myself as a wedding photographer but the idea of documenting a period of time as it happens is what really appeals to me.

There was something great about being the only person who got to see every part of that day and I hope when I handed the photos over to Annette and Ben they got to experience everything they didn't get to see.

A massive thank you to Annette and Ben for trusting me!

  1. Gorgeous photos..! Love the black & white one of Annette & Ben on the roll down door with the graffiti, that's definitely my fave.

    You captured it all so perfectly - the sun shining, laughter, happiness & love.

    Your talent never ceases to amaze. I adore your work, simple as that.
