We both have a totally natural approach to shooting your wedding. We won’t put you into any awkward poses, instead we will capture the real-life moments of your day as they happen. When you look back at your photographs, we want you to remember how you felt at that moment. This is your wedding, not a photo-shoot! You’ve just got married! For couple portraits, we’ll steal you away from your guests for a short time to give you a moment to take it all in. Enjoy being together and we’ll capture you naturally, with each other.
Weddings are pure joy and excitement, and we absolutely thrive on documenting this. We capture the range of emotions that tell your story, allowing you to relive your day through our images. If you look through our photos a common theme is laughter and giggles. You may have seen magazine photos of brides with their head bowed, looking sad. That’s not really our style – this is one of the happiest days of your lives and this happiness is what we will capture.
We love photographing people! Our unobtrusive approach means that we can capture your guests naturally, as they enjoy your day with you. We’ll take a few group photos for the family album but we keep these to a minimum because we want you and your guests to enjoy catching up and spending time together. Our experience and intuition enables us to be in the right place at the right time to capture people at their most relaxed, happy and at ease. It may be a glance, a gesture or even a kiss, we will document these spontaneous interactions as they happen.
The unique thing about Memories and Milestones is that you will have two photographers covering your wedding. As we’ve said, we’re drawn to wedding photography for many reasons but the main reason is because we love to photograph people. Because there are two of us, we will always be photographing different perspectives and while one of us may be shooting ‘the main event’, for example the speeches, the other will be capturing guests’ reactions. Of course, the bride and groom are the most important people at a wedding but capturing candid and creative images of your family and friends is, to us, is just as important. It’s the people that make weddings, and capturing them is a big part of our job.
You will have been planning your wedding for months (maybe even years!) and all the little details you have painstakingly chosen and put together will add to the feel of your day. On the day, you might not get to see your venue decorated before it is filled with guests so we’ll be there to record it for you. We’ll find those special spots at which really show off your venue and why you fell in love with it. Your flowers will fade and the cake will be eaten, but you will have stunning, timeless photographs to keep the details fresh.
As you party into the evening we’ll capture your first dance together as husband and wife. Then, as your guests let their hair down, we’ll be there on the dancefloor as couples get romantic and children swirl in their party dresses. We love capturing the atmosphere and energy of your celebrations.
The day will have passed so quickly but we will have captured those fleeting, candid moments for you to remember forever! When you look back over the memories we have delivered, you will have a wonderful collection of romantic images in beautiful settings.
