Wedding Photography

I’m a wedding photographer based in East Sussex and cover the entire UK and Europe when the opportunity arises.  Although I primarily shoot weddings in East Sussex and Kent I also regularly photograph weddings in  Kent, Surrey, West Sussex and Essex.  London is also a regular wedding location. My kind of wedding photography appeals to a certain type of person. It’s for someone who doesn’t want to be hassled or handled by the photographer throughout the day. Most of the time  I document things as they happen with minimal interference.

The results are natural memories of your wedding day that show true emotion. Every wedding requires a few formal group/posed shots and I cater for these accordingly but the main emphasis will be on candid, unobtrusive photography. Using a small amount of creative and informal posing ensures you get the wow images and together with the real emotion of the documentary images the results are a real and beautiful reminder of your day.
As a photographer the wedding is the easy part, requiring anywhere from 4 to twelve hours at the event. Coverage often starts at the house while the bride is getting ready and continues through the reception up to the first dance. A few posed shots are always required but I try and keep the rest of the day as relaxed and informal as possible. I like to capture the wedding day events as they happen rather than staging shots to photograph. The memories the photographs help recall should be real ones, not staged moments in the day.
The real work starts after the wedding, with editing, online proofing and printing, I use the latest digital cameras and lenses from canon, editing software and printers to ensure you get perfect results. Every image is viewed in detail on a computer, alterations are made to each and every print to ensure that tonal range, contrast, colour balance, sharpness, composition and content are exactly right. Computer editing of images allows us to provide the equivalent of traditional hand printing techniques on every image you get. This kind of service just wouldn’t have been available from wedding photographers in the days of film. Your photographs can be in black and white, colour or a combination of the two.
Once your images have been through the editing phase (about 2 weeks) a web site is built so that you may view them online. My style of wedding photography, Creative Reportage is becoming more and more popular as brides are increasingly no longer content with staged cut-the-cake kiss-the-groom shots. Photography by Perceptive is about capturing the days events as they happen. I will of course arrange group shots as necessary and a few posed shots of the Bride and groom. Wedding photographers have a reputation for being bossy and controlling often taking hours out of your day posing you for formal photographs. My wedding photography is different. Rather than posing the days events, capturing the real moments, as they happen. As a wedding photographer I try to achieve natural, candid, informal, unobtrusive, relaxed, professional, contemporary, modern and creative images..
