I often enthuse during my consultations with prospective brides and grooms that whilst they are clearly the number one couple in my life that day, it’s what goes on beyond in the background that can often be priced as higher photographic currency than what fills the foreground. As a couple, you live your day, but you don’t see your day, well not in quite the same way as a hired pair of eyes will. And that’s my role; to be the couples’ eyes. The way your friends look on as you exchange rings during the ceremony, the reaction your friends display during a surprising story amid the speeches, the backstage reveals in a hustling kitchen, or floral construction with hours to go until the I dos. This is the bread of wedding photography. Beyond the action, there’s a whole plethora of storytelling to be done.
