Handy to know: See the real FAQ
01. How do I know you're the photographer for us?
I recommend reading some nice words from my past couples just below this. If those lovely words bake your muffins, then send me an enquiry for an obligation-free hangout over zoom.
02. What's the key to looking great in my photos?
A Michael Bolton or Tina Turner record playing in the background, an industrial-sized hair-fan in your face, and a tasty ice-cream in your hand of choice. Substitute any of those for your own happiness ingredients, and/or a community that you love around you - thats the key to a great photo.
03. Why are you a wedding photographer?
I wasn't good enough at physics to navigate a moon landing, so joining the most incredible communities at their wedding was the next best thing, and merges everything that i love about people, ceremony, art, and photojournalism together (all without ruining my carbon-footprint by busting through our upper atmosphere with a high powered rocket). And oddly, this is all stardust anyway: 147 million kilometres from your wedding, a giant ball of explosions (otherwise known more endearingly as "the sun") releases particles of light that have fought for about one million years from it's centre to it's surface. These then escape and sprint 8 minutes towards you, busting through the earths atmosphere and bouncing lovingly onto your majestic faces, and then into my cameras. I probably won't call myself a physicist anytime soon, but to me, it's fascinating stuff.
04. Craziest thing that's happened at a wedding?
I've seen couples get married in a sea of canoes, and i've chased Bruce Springsteen around a house after he was the wedding singer in a backyard. But the wildest things are always the smallest things. Your community with, around, and for you. I call it "the incredible bigsmall", and it describes exactly what I do: find all the incredible small stuff. The cheeky glance between your folks. The wayward finger of your nephew indulging in deep-nasal-cavity exploration mid ceremony. Etc.
05. Will this be as painful as high school?
I don't know if you meant "high school" or "high school photos", in any case, no, you won't have an existential crisis, and no, these aren't your average school photos. But here's the good bit: I have over half a decade of experience in making people who hate the camera, feel right at home in front of it. You might notice that the galleries here look a little different to what you expected: and that's because apart from knowing how to wave a camera around, my best skill is creating a comfortable space, where the incredible you comes out, as you are, because what matters most is your experience, and everything comes afterwards.
