Why Hire a Professional Leeds Wedding Photographer?

– A Photographer is more than just a camera,

There is a lot more to photography than just having an expensive camera.  The same as how a builder can have all the equipment but won’t necessarily be a good builder.  A professional photographer will know how to use their camera but also what to do in difficult lighting situations, what if it’s raining on your wedding day or what if its bright sunshine.  There is so much that a good wedding photographer will consider before even taking pictures a good proportion of the day is problem-solving.  After the images have been captures there is still more work for a professional Photographer, the editing and wedding album design play such a big part in the finished result of your wedding pictures.

– A Profesional Photographer means less work for you,

When you hire a professional photographer, you are buying into their experience.  They will be able to bring so much more to your wedding day than stunning pictures.  They will know where to be and when to get the best pictures for your day.

– Feeling at Ease,

A professional wedding photographer also has amazing people skills and are able to put you and your guests at ease during the wedding day.  Your wedding day will be filled with both posed and candid images, you may for example want a selection of groups images.  A professional photographer is an expert in these situations making them more fun and enjoyable for both the couple and the guests.

– Back-Ups,

A professional wedding photographer has backups of there backups.  For example, I always have 2 cameras on me if one was to fail at that critical point I can easily switch to the second one, I then have an extra back up in the car.  All of my professional cameras same images on two card slots creating an instant back up, then when you and your wedding guest sit down to eat I back up all the images on to a laptop creating an additional back up.  What if I am ill on your wedding day or something more serious, again I have a back up for this.  What I am trying to say is by hiring a professional photographer it means you images are safe and secure should anything happen.

– Your Wedding Day pictures will last a lifetime,

Your wedding day pictures will be one of the only tangible things remaining after your big day.  This means they are incredibly important.  Your pictures are a chance to relive your big day over and over again.  A wedding photographer I don’t think should be seen as another perchance for your wedding day but an investment so you can relive your day over and over again.  What you don’t want to do is look back on your wedding pictures and wish you had a professional.  In all of my wedding photography packages I offer a stunning album which means you can look back on your day over and over again, you can find out more by clicking the link below.

My Wedding Photography Style

Your Wedding day is a mix of different events throughout the day each of them different, for me as a wedding photographer they need different styles of photography.  For most of the day, I would refer to my style as  documentary, completely unobtrusive capturing your day as it unfolds capturing what happens, how it happens.  When I receive reviews that say for some of the day we did not even know Dave was there, this is such a positive thing.  When you can blend into the wedding day and just let the magic unfold in front of you, that’s when you really document the day.

There also comes a time when I offer a little more direction.  For example the formal wedding group pictures or the couple pictures.  When it comes to the formal group images, I like to be super organised but also relaxed, I want to capture amazing formal images of your chosen groups but not have everyone standing around for longer than is needed.  When it comes to pictures of the couple, I normally ask for about 20 – 30 minutes, I don’t want to keep you from the wedding for longer than is needed.  I keep things relaxed but again here a little more direction is needed, I like to say I position and don’t pose I still want to see your personality.  To me, this really helps get the best out of the photograph.  You can see more about my wedding photography style by clicking the link below.
