When it comes to being comfortable in front of the camera there is no ‘one way fits all’, and when it comes to one of the most memorable days of your life being documented, I know just as much as you do that you want to look and feel comfortable in these wedding photos you will cherish forever.
Feather and Finch is certainly not your standard cookie-cutter wedding photography. I will not be there to tell you when to dip, kiss, laugh or smile; I’ll be there to capture the raw moments as they unfold. As the tears flow with emotion and laughter erupts in the wildest of moments. My wedding photography is based around the stories of your life and love, ensuring my craft is created within your vision the whole time. But how do we get to this stage of being comfortable with one another and making sure the awkwardness stays between that moment of silence when the celebrant asks if anyone objects to your marriage!?
It is my priority to make sure that you are feeling at ease with my presence, and to do that we break down the barrier of vendor/client and become more like friends. I’d like to think I am a very approachable person and always like to begin our journey towards your wedding day with a video call, here we get to know each other, chat and I can answer any underlying questions you have around what I do and what I can do for you. If you’re local to the Gold Coast get ready for some outings! Before your wedding day we will catch up multiple times and not just for a coffee (that is certainly on the agenda though!). We can spend as little or as much time together as you like as I begin to learn your story through experiences with you. We have a Gold Coast Studio that you’re more than welcome to come to, a world of knowledge to share and the option of having an engagement shoot prior (which I highly recommend) to let all those pre-wedding photography jitters out and to see how cruisy and relaxed it truly can be.
While most of your nerves have faded by now, when your wedding day rolls around it is still my forefront to make capturing these special moments seamless and effortless. I will be completely transparent in saying that I certainly won’t be your ‘director’ for the day but will make sure the love I have learnt from each of you is captured real and authentically and if that means suggesting we go dancing in a field or climbing a mountain, you could just be up for a little adventure – but I promise you it will be worth it.
