“She was amazing from start to finish at our wedding in Greece! Her attention to detail is second to none… I am not a fan of having my picture taken but she made me feel so comfortable, she got some beautiful natural shots! She captured every moment, and every bit in between… and the fun shots definitely came naturally with Lucy around!!! .”Danny & Beckie
I ABSOLUTELY love to travel. So when I was approached to shoot a destination wedding for Danny and Becky, in the gorgeous Greek island of Rhodes, you can imagine my answer was HELL YEAH… SUN, SEA AND PHOTOGRAPHY!!!
What I loved the most about Danny and Beckie’s wedding was that their children were the bridal party. Their 6-year-old son was the best man and their two lovely girls of 9 and 11 were the bridesmaids. It created the cutest and one of the most authentically beautiful weddings I’ve ever shot.
Before the wedding day, they advised me that they wanted a laid back, non-traditional, and all-round fun day for all the family to enjoy. They weren’t really interested in anything too posed and just wanted me to keep the style of photography documentary and candid… which is basically my style in a nutshell, so I knew we were a perfect match. I spent most of the day like a fly on the wall, wedding ninjaing around the beautiful town of Lindos. I got to capture lots of natural, unposed shots of their gorgeous children and guests, as well as the amazing scenery and perfect weather.
Before the ceremony, I walked around the venue and picked out all the areas that had the best light, and the most beautiful and interesting back-drops. This meant that when it was time for Danny and Beckie’s couple shots, we were ready. A huge part of my job as the photographer is to make sure I have all the small details planned to a tee. This ensures that my bride and groom have a beautiful selection of images to look back on with minimal amount of disruption to their big day. By doing this, it gives my couples maximum time with their guests and doesn’t involve any senseless traipsing around a venue for hours, being barked order at by the photographer. I also find that the time between a bride and groom during couple shots is a very special time. It’s usually their first moments together as a married and couple, so by using that energy and popping them in a nice location, the pictures just create themselves.
What I love the most about documentary-style photography is that no matter what the venue looks like, the pictures are less about the scenery and more about the moments created there, which I feel this album perfectly catches.
