BIRMINGHAM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Getting married? I'd love to capture your big day and give you a lifetime of special memories.

I have a passion for photography and capturing people in real, natural moments. My aim as your wedding photographer is to deliver you a documentary style set of candid photos which show your day unfolding as it really happened from start to finish. I'm based in Birmingham, but I'm happy to travel across the UK and abroad as required to capture your big day.

WHAT IS DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?

Documentary wedding photography means capturing the day as it happens without interfering or directing you in any way. I won't interrupt you to look at the camera or move you to get a particular pose or look. Each wedding is unique and by letting your day unfold naturally I can capture those small personal moments rather than taking a series of dull photos with everyone staring back at the camera. It's the small details which make your wedding day unique and by not getting involved I can show you those moments and hopefully when you look back through your photos in 10 years time you won't remember me being there. Watch the video slideshow below for a highlights package, I aslo have entire weddings to view in my gallery so you can get the complete picture of my style.

GROUP SHOTS & PORTRAITS?

There is of course a need for some group shots of you and your guests and some portraits of you both. The group shots are a great way to record who was there and portrait shots of the two of you are the generally the ones you'll want to display at home or use on the front of the album if you choose to have one. It also gives you both some time together away from it all. However, I like to keep this part of the day simple and quick. Guests generally want to head to the bar after the ceremony rather than a photo shoot and not everyone is comfortable being posed for pictures. I generally recommend 5-6 group shots, which covers everything you should need and usually takes just 10-15 minutes. The portraits shots of the two of you are very relaxed and also take around 15 minutes, so you can spend less time with me and more time enjoying your day.

We went with Tom as aren’t the type who enjoy looking down the lens and his style was just what we were looking for. As for the day, he seemed to be in all the right places and we couldn’t be happier with the final pictures!
