In August I was privileged to be invited to cover a gorgeous wedding just a few minutes walk from my studio. That of Harriet and Nathan. I had already worked with this lovely couple when they came to my studio for a shoot with their, then, little baby Ava. She was now a bubbly little girl who was very much the center of attention throughout the day, her Mum has a blog all about Ava and her wedding “journey” over on “A Rush Of Love“. I have to say Harriet writes a far better blog than I can ever hope to, and for those interested in all the details of the day, please do check out Harriet’s musings where I am sure you will find everything you may wish to know and more 🙂
If you are looking for a creative, artistic documentary wedding photographer, then please do get in touch. These are Harriet’s own kind words and for these I am truly thankful 🙂
“When it came to booking our wedding photographer we didn’t have to think twice about who we wanted and we booked Phil well in advance. Having worked with him before I knew to expect nothing but the best from him and when it came to our wedding photos I wasn’t disappointed. I am over the moon with every shot. Phil goes far beyond your average wedding photography. He has a fantastic artistic eye and the shots took my breath away. I am thrilled with our photos and the service we received from Phil himself was second to none. I cannot recommend him highly enough!“
I am, and always are, truly amazed at how kind my couples can be in their words of praise….thank you to Harriet and Nathan for your trust, your faith and your friendship, but most of all thank you for being amazing.
Ok, sticking my artist/illustrator head on for a while here…..this is so why I love shooting the actual signing rather than a false staged shoot at the end….the interaction here between all the family and friends is like an old Hogarth painting, a depiction of a moment in time, the various conversations, the chaos and anticipation….the querying glance from Nathan to the Vicar….the best man “rolling” his own wedding band as his thoughts dart back to his own wedding perhaps? All these elements make this more than a picture, it is a window on a moment in time. A fleeting, passing moment, that is so full of life and interest, this is what being a Shropshire documentary wedding photographer is all about.
