The photography decision was a tricky one for us. The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that we have already had the pleasure of being snapped by a super talented photographer in our introductory post. So you might be fooled into thinking that decision was easily made... The thing is, that just so happens to be my brother (Joe Kingston Photography). We both adore his documentary photography style, but I want him to be able to relax on the day and not worry about getting the next shot (unless of course, we are talking about the alcoholic type).
Which meant that we started the photographer hunt with a very clear idea of what we wanted...but no real clue on where to start. Luckily Joe shared some recommendations with us, and we started diligently researching the style that we liked online. We kept coming back to a relaxed but authentic style that we loved, Michelle Wood. I scoured wedding blogs to get a better idea of Michelle’s work and loved her photography from Katy and Simon’s wedding featured here on Rock My Wedding. A catch-up with Michelle on the phone sealed the deal, I could tell she totally got what we were looking for and would be the right person for the job.
If you are still on the photography hunt though, here are some other photographers that made our shortlist: Matt Horan // Kristian Leven // Katherine Ashdown // Scuffins Photography // Tim Dunk // Matt Parry
