Weddings

Many moons ago, when this photographic journey was just beginning, the 'W' word sent shivers down my spine. After spending hundreds of hours nestled on mountain sides shooting bike races and vistas in all weathers, the realisation that shooting a wedding really wasn't the scary prospect so many people make it out to be became extremely visible and clear.

The experience itself has turned into the complete polar opposite of these initial thoughts and expectations. The privilege to be chosen by you, is beyond what mere words can describe. We shoot a limited amount of weddings each season, this allows us to keep our ideas and energy fresh delivering you images that are first class for you.

"Si is a very down to earth photographer who tries his best and succeeds in delivering the style of photos you want of your special day. He respects the vision you have and goes out of his way to make everyone feel nothing less than comfortable and more importantly, themselves, in front of his camera. We enjoyed Si's collaborative approach and appreciated his willingness to switch between taking directions from us and using his initiative when we weren't sure. We love that our photos are a genuine reflection of our day."

"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close"

Pablo Neruda.
