My Approach

How I work on your wedding day

bridal prep

Getting ready

During bride / groom prep I capture everything naturally. This can be a busy time, you don’t want me getting in the way asking you to pose!

This is the start of your story, I’m looking for moments as the excitement starts to build.

I capture the ceremony naturally and discreetly. My camera is silent so no annoying click to distract from the moment.

Drinks reception

Unlike the more traditional photographers I don’t whisk you away as soon as the ceremony is over. I want you to mingle, hug your loved ones and really enjoy this amazing part of the day!

“I could not recommend Cris enough! He was fantastic from start to finish. The photos are absolutely breathtaking and captured the day beautifully.”

Portraits and Group photos

We’ll spend about 20 mins capturing natural and creative portraits of the happy couple around the grounds of the venue.

If you’d like some family groups we’ll do a few of these too. I’ll ask for a list of up to 10 you’d like on the day. Any more than 10 and you tend to lose a bit too much time in your drinks reception.

Meal and Speeches

Speeches can be amazing for moments and they get me every time!

I don’t take pictures when people are eating. I use this time to back up, chill and eat myself. Besides, no-one really wants a camera in their face when they’re putting a fork in their mouth!

If you have anything unusual like singing waiters (which, if you’ve never seen before, are actually amazing!) remember to let me know.

The Evening

Before your first dance and party we might have a sunset to play with or perhaps you’ve booked some entertainment like a magician or casino.

First Dance and Party

After your first dance the party gets started. If people are on the dance-floor I’ll be there to capture them throwing some shapes.
