“We cannot stop looking at our amazing wedding pictures, thanks to the very talented Mike. So many of our family and friends commented on what an incredible photographer we had and we couldn’t agree more. We wanted someone who was unlike the traditional wedding photographers and that’s exactly what we got with Mike, who is literally a creative genius. We were even graced with a rainbow to top off our special day, which of course mike was as excited about as much as we were.”
Thank you Leonie and Sam for the incredibly kind words. I am trying not to let the phrase ‘creative genius’ go to my head! It is always great to hear that you have understood what a client is looking for and that your photography style has complimented their vision. I honestly believe that you should ‘click’ with your wedding photographer, it is so much about personality. The credit really shouldn’t all be mine for these photographs, this wedding was just beautiful. For starters the Bride and Groom make a very good looking couple and were relaxed in front of the camera allowing me to get creative with portrait shots, which have come out with a natural feel. I even got to play with smoke canons which made brilliant shots and made my day! The entire wedding party looked super stylish and the reception venue (Shenley Cricket Club) made the ideal backdrop for photographs which perfectly complimented the Wedding style.
The feel of this Wedding was classic and charmingly English, the Big Red London bus, the quirky and inviting Cricket Club reception, the pure elegance and style, the statement red bridesmaids dresses and we even had some rain (now you can’t get more English than that!) but that didn’t spoil the day for a second, in fact a little rain can give some great opportunities for documentary shots and in this case it also gave us the most amazing rainbow – which as Leonie says in her feedback I did get very excited about and made the most of (I love the rainbow shots!).
Leonie and Sams wedding for me was full of class and classic style. My philosophy for weddings is a combination of fine art, reportage and friendliness and the photographs from this Wedding represent that perfectly. Thank you once again to Leonie and Sam for inviting me to capture your beautiful wedding day. Here are a few of my favourite photos of the day.
