How do you photograph love?

Weddings can be incredibly emotional events. They are often joyous, intimate or even hilarious. Each one has its own story with the connection between two people at its heart. This story is so powerful I believe it deserves to be remembered forever. This is the starting point for my wedding photography. My aim is to produce a series of natural and timeless images documenting the entire wedding day. I aim to capture the true personality of a couple and never allow anyone to feel awkward in any way. It is possible to get beautiful photographs without posing in ridiculous ways and spending hours away from the party. Great wedding photography is all about taking you back in time to those spontaneous moments which pass all too quickly. The excitement for me is in anticipating those moments and allowing them to be relived by couples and their families forever. That is what photographs do. They stop you from forgetting. Love may be too big a concept to put into words but I have seen it in pictures.

I truly love to photograph. That is how you photograph love.
