Capturing {the beauty of} the BigDay

There is nothing more epic than a love story.

And we’re about to tell yours.

I never set out to be a wedding photographer.  If you met me in the pub and asked me what I do for a living, I would say that I’m a documentary photographer.  I don’t really mind what the subject is, I just like to look, frame and capture.  I want to capture the moment.  The emotion.  The reaction.

You see, I initially started Unscripted Photography to capture the beautiful lives of normal families going about their normal days.  Somehow, some lovely couples stumbled across my work and saw something in it.  And then the enquiries began.  At first I was reluctant to put myself “out there” for weddings, but after I captured my first few, I loved that within every BigDay there were so many little stories, little moments.  All dying to be preserved.  So I was hooked!

I’m simply a storyteller at heart.  And I’m so glad that you have found your way into my little Unscripted world and may consider me to tell yours.

My Style

Think of me as your mate with the poncey camera!  I mingle, I get in close, sometimes step back, sometimes observe, often chat to guests, offer advice (like how to go to the loo in a big giant frock), dance with the flower girls – ultimately – I want the inside story on your wedding.

I’m not looking for the pinterest poses.  I’m there to capture every moment.  Not just the big ones.  Although they’re super important too.  I want my images to transport you back to that moment in time when your now-husband whispers something ever-so-cheeky into your ear and you throw your head back in sheer hysteria.

Weddings are full of these magical little moments.  And it’s a huge honour to be able to capture them for you so they aren’t forgotten.
