We believe that a wedding photographer should be a happy and friendly person that makes you feel relaxed, comfortable and enjoy your wedding day - even if you don't normally like being centre of attention. Most of the couples we meet are not used to posing for the camera and so our whole approach is in getting to know you better, and being that happy friendly face on your wedding day, so you feel more relaxed and confident that you will have beautiful photos.
It's so nice to get a great connection with couples and we have made so many friends over the past six years of photographing weddings. One couple that I had an immediate connection with were Richard and Emily, so I was really confused why Richard seemed so nervous on their engagement shoot. It only became apparent when he got down on one knee and pulled out the engagement ring to surprise Emily! After that he was very relaxed!
For their wedding day, they had a beautiful ceremony at Lox Lane Farm near Shaftesbury. Like a lot of couples, they put in an enormous amount of time and effort to get every detail perfect, from the table decorations, to the bouquets, and of course to the surprise entrance on horse and carriage!
Here are a selection of photos from their Summer wedding by Jamie McDine of Wiltshire Wedding Photography.
