Dorset wedding photographer

I am proud to represent Dorset Wedding Photography and I believe in more than just making you look perfect on camera, I want to capture the moment and offer it as a gift that will exist forever. The importance of a documentary wedding photographer goes beyond what most people expect. Being a photographer isn’t just “pointing and clicking”. Nowadays in the era of technology when smartphones are the extension of everyone’s hand and taking a selfie (or 100) is second nature to us all we might think of ourselves as photographers, but we aren’t. How many selfies get framed and live on forever?

“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words.”
— Elliott Erwitt

As a professional Dorset wedding photographer, I believe in bringing more to the event than just a camera. I act as wedding photographer, and coordinator, throughout the day and you will gain from this knowledge that I have obtained from decades of weddings to your advantage not only this, as a Documentary wedding photographer I might be taking pictures for just one day of your lives but I am actually creating a lifetime of memories for you.

Photography should be a top priority when planning your big day. If you take a moment to think about it, a photographer will be there by your side from the moment you are getting ready, cut your cake and possibly till the end of the event. As the photographer, I will be right there by your side creating a personal relationship with you both.

There are numerous benefits to planning ahead of time, the wedding plan is important but once the wedding day begins you’ll have an experienced hand to take you through your day.

How can your photographer be a coordinator and manage to get his work done? It is a well-known fact that practice makes perfect and I have participated in hundreds of beautiful weddings and have learned a trick or two to help you out.
As a documentary wedding photographer, I have to:

  • know
  • be attentive
  • anticipate
  • have vision

All these skills are learned over time and with passion for the art of photography.

Your photographer should know how you should pose when it comes simple, fun, portraiture. Since 1999 I have honed the skill of wedding photography and in particular, portraits. Often I am asked about my camera or hear “gosh that camera must take good photos” but the real skill is how quickly a rapport can be built with the person in front of the camera, once relaxed a spectacular photograph can then be taken.

In case of an emergency as an experienced photographer, I offer more than my photographic skill set, I offer my advice and coordinate you accordingly so that the specific situation can be dealt with and we move past and enjoy the rest of your wedding.

If there is a moment at a wedding where the décor, the sky or the light outside aligns perfectly in some way only nature can offer, as your photographer I will have the vision and imagination to anticipate a perfect photo before it happens, and then make it happen. You will be most probably be overwhelmed on your big day, as a documentary wedding photographer, the moments will be there for you to sit back and relive time and again even those that you didn”t see on the day. I understand how important it is that the day goes on perfectly, I take pride in my work and it brings me pure joy to see the moments that the couple lived on their wedding day captured exactly as they were.

Your wedding photos might have great emotional value when you receive them but fast forward years from now and only then will you see their true value.
