Given that I do wedding photography, it should have been no suprise that on announcing my engagement, the question on everyone's lips was, who will be your wedding photographer?
I know many many excellent photographers and most of them not in London so I knew I would need to be creative with my choice.
Prior to Andrew getting down on one knee and proposing, we had been at the rehearsal dinner of Alistair and Josephine, also attended by their second photographer Pui. After seeing her photos and her style of shooting through Alistair and Josephine's wedding, Andrew and I both had a strong hunch she was our photographer.
The only other person who I was considering was Deborah Zoe, an amazing photographer based in New England but as we were already flying in Ann Pumphrey to do our guest photos, that was going to be a much more expensive option than we could afford.
Happily Pui's style really fits in with what I was looking for, I love the urban look of her photos and I love her personality, she is someone I am happy to have around on one of the most special days of my life.
We are so happy too, that Ann can come and do our wedding guest photos. Obviously it will be great to have her as she is a really special friend but also we want Pui to concentrate on the wedding party and having Ann will allow that to happen. Having a community wedding means there could potentially be many people but however many do turn up we really want to have a tonnes of photos of the guests, the people that made the effort to come - some from as far as Switzerland, Canada and Kenya. The only way to acheive that would be to hire someone whose job was purely concentrate on guest photos. Additionally she will take some photos of just us the following day which takes the pressure off having to spend a large amount of time away from our guests.
So with no further ado, here are Pui's photos.
