Weddings will always hold a special place in my heart. One of my brides recently asked me why I love photographing weddings and my answer in simple, I love photographing love. I feel like a producer on a Disney movie on a wedding day capturing the happily ever after !
Frequently asked questions
Do you work with an assistant?
Do you travel for weddings?
I most certainly do. I love visiting different parts of this beautiful country of ours and have also travelled far and wide for weddings in many different countries and of various cultures. I’m up for travelling anywhere in the world for your big day!
What happens if I am camera shy?
No need to worry. I am sensitive to the fact that most of my clients are not professional models and not used to being photographed for an entire day. There are certain parts of the day that just ‘happen’ and I am there to document these moments in as beautiful a way as possible. Some of my favourite photos from the wedding day usually end up being the ‘unposed’ ones. Having said that, there are certain parts of the day like the couple photos or bridal portraits where my clients appreciate a little bit of guidance as to what to ‘do’ but the objective would be to create an environment for the clients to interact and be present in the moment. I might tell you a joke or two, I am a total sucker for laughing photos. A little tip: An engagement shoot before the day of your wedding can also be a great way of getting used to being in front of the camera but this is not essential, you don’t have to do any homework or feel like you have to know what to ‘do’, you can leave it up to me.
What is the best time for the couple photos?
The last hour before the sun sets is referred to as ‘the golden hour’. This is a great time for the couple photos, as the sun is lower and softer. No squinting into hard direct sunlight. If you’re getting married where the sun dips behind the mountains it would be best to schedule the couple photos before the golden hour to ensure some sunshine before it dips.
