WEDDINGS

About

Darren Sanderson Photography is delighted to announce the launch of his Wedding Photography service. 

His style is very different to many other Wedding Photographers, as he records the day in a "documentary/reporting" style, without the “traditional” posed, uncomfortable line-up shots.This makes for a much more relaxed atmosphere, leaving you and your guests to concentrate on enjoying the day itself and forget about having to "pose" for the camera yet again.

It's just one less thing to worry about.

Darren Sanderson Photography is delighted to cover both Weddings and Civil ceremonies across both the UK and Overseas.

 

What happens next ?

After the initial contact and whenever possible, we like to have an informal chat and meet you face - face (ideally at the Wedding Venue).

The purpose behind a meeting, is to be able to discuss your plans and ideas and for you to be comfortable and relaxed in Darren’s presence. He will explain fully how a documentary wedding works with you and to see if you have any special requests.

We are more than happy taking a few of the “standard” family group shots, but ultimately if all you require are traditional group shots, then we would wish you all the luck in the world and help you find a photographer who would be more able to photograph the traditional wedding for you.

Remember, this is your day and the best way to capture it is in a natural style. Most people are not relaxed and do not feel comfortable in front of the camera and just want the photographs to be over. We blend into the background and after a short while, you and your guests should (hopefully) forget we are around. Everyone can then relax - ultimately producing more natural photographs and enabling your guests to enjoy the day with you. We prefer to capture you and your guests interacting naturally from a distance. The more memorable photographs are the ones where you can forget the photographer is there and you can all be yourselves.

We will speak separately to both the church/registry office and also to the venue to see what and where we can and can’t photograph. This gives us the opportunity to scout the locations and be well prepared ahead of the big day.

With your permission, we also like to speak to your chief bridesmaid and best man and introduce ourselves so if anything is needed on the day itself, they can help out.

Our preparation is methodical and we always plan for every eventuality.

The final bit's

We don't state a price on the website as every wedding is different and every couple are unique. You may only want a few hours photographing or you may want a full day package and pre / post shots taking. Once we have spoken to you and found out your requirements, we can give you a price which we can both agree on.

Together we will create something special, something different, something new and a reminder of wonderful memories for many years to come.

We look forward to joining you and been a small part of your special day.

If we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us by phone, email or send a message through the 'contact' section above.
