“I believe wedding photographs should be timeless. Sentimental images to be proud of; therefore I’m not really interested in the latest fads or gimmicks as these can quickly date. I am far more interested in capturing a genuine moment than manufacturing the perfect picture. Real moments, real stories and real love.”

The following portfolio is a small selection of my favorite images that showcase this phylosophy…

 

The above picture is taken from the beautiful wedding of Opera star Russell Watson to his wife Louise. A destination wedding in Benahavis, Spain, which featured in the celebrity magazine HELLO! – We had just finished a series of ‘posed/formal’ shots which was required for HELLO! and I was putting by camera away (ready to move to the next location for the wedding breakfast) when I turned and seen this beautiful tender moment where Russell had totally let his guard down. A total contrast to the previous set of images we had just taken. Louise, the bride later stated “Wes – this is exactly why we booked you, for the real moments!”.

Sometimes feelings sneak out of peoples eyes and roll down their cheeks.

I love to capture love and emotion, but belly laughs rule!

I believe that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication and that love is the ultimate emotion. With this in mind, I love to get creative with my Brides and Grooms and to take advantage of the fantastic locations I get to visit. Directing, not posing – for some personality lead portraits that my couples call “works of ART” and proudly hand on their walls.

The weather isn’t as important as the stories.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though at times, it may seem like the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

REAL LOVE – REAL MOMENTS
