We don't like having our photos taken, how do you over come that?
My approach to capturing your day is exactly that, capturing it. I will blend seamlessly into the background and document your day with as much disruption as possible. When it comes to your intimate couple shots I will just have you engage in conversation with each other, walking alongside each other and capture those natural moments.
Can you do both photo and video together?
Yes, my cameras are able to capture both photos and video at the flick of a switch, this way I am able to capture both photography and videography simultaneously.
When will we receive our photographs?
I will have your photos back to you usually within two weeks of your wedding if not sooner.
“My husband and I can't recommend Liam enough to any body planning a wedding and hoping to have it captured in the most fantastic way! (Although we are pretty sure it's not just weddings he photographs so well, we'd use him again for any occasion!) From the first phone call to meeting him at our venue before the wedding day he was very professional and knowledgeable, instilling full confidence in the service we'd receive! Mark and I really hoped the day would be captured in a natural way, snapping the shots of us and our guests halfway through a laugh or intriguing conversation for example! And that's exactly what Liam did! When we looked through our photos (which were waiting for us at home when we returned from our minimoon, in a beautiful leather box!) we were amazed by the fact that the vast majority of photos were taken without even realising he was there! He spent the enetire day dashing around, ensuring he photographed as much as physically possible yet you'd barely know he was even there, amazing! He's also a really nice guy so we felt very comfortable around him and are just so pleased we chose him! Thank you so much Liam, you've captured our day perfectly from beginning to end and I'm not sure I'll ever tire of looking at the photos!”
“Being totally OBSESSED with pictures, I began to panic at the thought of not finding 'The One' to capture one of our most important days of our lives! We wanted our wedding pictures to be all natural, in the moment photographs, to capture the true feelings and emotions of the day and my god did Liam deliver just that... and more! From the moment we booked him he has been fantastic, just so easy going and a genuinely nice guy, I felt so at ease knowing he was our photographer, like a weight lifted off my shoulders. As soon as he arrived at the venue he was straight on capturing those very moments we knew we wanted... the kids dancing and playing, family members chatting and laughing, make up, hair, our dresses and bits and bobs, he just knew exactly what to get and what would look incredible on camera. Everyone said how great he was, not intrusive or in the way what so ever, most of the time we didn't even know where he was lol! We received our USB so quickly and honestly we were blown away, we cried looking at them all, such beautiful, special moments to look back on and cherish forever. We truly were over the moon. His dedication and passion for his work is incredible, he loves it, that's clear to see! We honestly can't thank you enough Liam, you are simply AMAZING!!”
"We cannot praise Liam highly enough for his service on our wedding day. He managed to capture every moment beautifully without anyone really noticing he was there. This meant we were able relax and enjoy our day. This discreet approach meant were are able to cherish the most intimate and authentic moments forever through our photographs. Formal photographs were directed with precision and the location and angles were really well considered. I had never felt so beautiful as I did on our wedding day, and the photographs made me feel even more beautiful. When we received the photos we were delighted with the editing and style of our couples pictures. I really felt he had captured our personalities and had made the most of the scenery and natural lighting. The overall experience was enjoyable and hassle free, and the end product was absolutely outstanding."
