Casual Captures - FAQ


What is it you do that is different from other wedding photographers?

I try to see the day that the Bride and Groom doesn't necessarily see.  My style of photography is to see the social side of your day, capturing the opportunistic photos, creating a photographic documentary of your big day. Yes, of course I will do the bridal preparations, grooms arrival, guest arrival, bride arrival, ceremony, the formal poses, the family line ups but I'll look for those things that just happen on the day. I always try to be unobtrusive as possible and that gives me the edge in seeing those amazing personal moments that create fantastic memories that will last for ever and ever.............. 

On your special day, I’ll compliment the ladies on their outfits, tell the guys their suits are fab and do my best to calm the over excited bridesmaids.  It's all just a very nice way of saying that I am observant, creative and not bossy in any way. By being laid back, almost like an extra guest, rather than “the wedding photographer”, I can be closer to the fun stuff, more discreet and capture more of the natural moments that matter with the minimum of fuss. I’m super relaxed and capture your wedding day naturally. I like real moments that show how you felt on your big day.


What does the Photography Party Package include?

I try and photograph every guest as a record of all the guests that attended your wedding reception.  I try to see the parts of the evening that the Bride and Groom don't necessarily see.  Opportunistic, journalistic and candid shots of your night instantly streamed as part of a slideshow on a large screen TV situated within your venue for everyone to enjoy.


What do I get for the Daytime Package?

A meeting prior to your big day to discuss your plans, unlimited photography from bridal preparations right through until 10.45pm. You will get all the photos in colour and black & white.  Both the colour and B&W albums can be viewed on my website and I provide you with a free app to view them on your mobiles. I personally deliver the photos to you on a memory stick within four weeks of the wedding.


What's included in The Ultimate Package?

Everything from bridal preparations right through until late evening.  This is the best value for money package as it also includes other extras like the “You’ve Been Framed” video!
