Hello, I'm Sam... or 'Mr Photographer Man' for short... I capture real people at real weddings...
Photography is the best way of preserving our memories. Each moment is enhanced when it's captured in a natural and honest way.
I'm a very nostalgic person, and I believe photography to be the reason for that. Digging through dusty old boxes of memories is my idea of the perfect rainy afternoon.
Wedding photography has come a long way since the days of groaning 'cheese' while standing as still as possible. I take pictures of real smiles, real tears and everything in between.
The most cherished photos are always the most natural ones, so that's what I aim for. They say 'Time flies when you're having fun' so lets not waste the day being told how and where to stand, or pose for endless lineups like we are back at school... you've got a party to enjoy!
Every moment is important on such a special occasion, so I give it my all to capture the day as it unfolds and tell the true story of your wedding.
I empathise with those who dislike being photographed, as I too am not overly confident on that side of the lens... I much prefer my end of the deal ;) This is something I always take consideration of when i'm shooting weddings, I don't put pressure on guests or single people out.
My advice is simple... be yourselves. This isn't a fashion shoot, it's your wedding day. So embrace the moment and savour every minute... it's my job to make sure you have a fantastic album to remember it all.
Photography kind of fell into my lap. During my degree in Graphic Design, I got to learn the basics of film photography and how a dark room works, after learning these skills I was hooked. Safe to say, my design work took a back seat once photography had sunk its teeth in.
Once I got my hands on a digital SLR camera, everything changed. The ability to shoot lots of images very fast at high quality had me hooked. Any spare time became my chance to experiment with light and all the possibilities this equipment gave me creatively. Learning how to use a camera in this very natural and fun way was very satisfying and has moulded my style of shooting. I have fun behind the lens... I enjoy the pursuit of that perfect moment.
