When I was growing up I always had a camera in hand on family holidays. I can still find photo albums now of when I was 6 or 7 and they’re full of the photos I took, some of them awful, some of them pretty good given my age. My dad used to say to me “make sure you look at the image in the camera and imagine it will go straight into a frame when it’s printed out”. Ever since then I’ve always composed photos with the idea that I’m going to hang them straight on a wall. This is why I got into wedding photography. I want to take the photos that end up on people’s walls.
Being tasked with capturing the memories of one of the most special days of people’s lives is one of the proudest jobs I’ve ever been given. Each wedding is different, each bride and groom are new people to meet, and each day is another exciting task for me to put my creativity to the test and get those pictures ready for people’s walls. I still get flattered every time a couple look at my work and choose me to photograph their wedding.
