Whisperido Wedding Photography

Here is my new Wedding Photography Website  Whisperido Weddings

My wedding photography has a unique style that blends photojournalism, creative & traditional wedding photography. My goal is to be as unobtrusive as possible on your wedding day and to naturally capture the events of the day. When working with the bride and groom and bridal party, the aim is on direction and natural interaction rather than posing. Most of my clients haven’t done this before, so I’ll work with you so the result is comfortable and natural looking.

I will capture all the events and emotions of this magical day in your life, to create an enduring memento of the first day of your new life as a married couple.

Engagement Shoots

This is generally a 1 hour session in your choice of location. I arrange to meet at a place that is special to the two of you. Ideally somewhere nice and open that provides some beautiful backdrops to your photos, i.e a beach, a park, a wood or even a town centre.

If you’re struggling for ideas I’ve got a few up my sleeve. I’m more than happy for you to  bring other members of your family along, such as children and pets. It’s a great time for me to get to know you and for you to get comfortable with the camera. Plus it is a lot of fun!
