I have been a photographer for 9 years, earning a living from it for 7 years with weddings being my main source of income for 6 of them. I also have a studio where I do actor's headshots and many other portraits including children, family and newborn shoots. I have worked with publishing companies doing fashion photography and still life for their magazines but it doesn't give me the thrill that a wedding does. I have weddings at the top of my list because I get that 'buzz' searching for a unique and beautiful image. Freezing a moment that can never be repeated or recaptured. There's always something different to shoot at a wedding and with my natural style I believe I excel in this area. It makes me smile when I see them on my computer and i smile even more when a couple get in touch to tell me how happy they are with their pictures.
I am definitely a people person. At a wedding I meet lots of new people which is an added bonus to the job. Doing 9-5 in the same place has never been my cup of tea. I need something new, a new challenge and this kind of photography gives me that. I have lots of wedding experience but every wedding is different, the people are different, the venue is different and so a different experience for me doing the same job that I love. I also know the importance of this occasion. It's probably the most important photography there is as, unlike portraits in the studio there's no second chances, you can't re-do a wedding because shots have been missed. That's where my experience comes in to it's own. And the need for more unique and beautiful images starts again.
