Silver Apples Wedding Photography combines the spontaneity of photo journalism with more controlled portraits, still life’s and landscapes, connecting all the elements that make up the amazing day. Much to the delight of the guests the schedule belongs to you, the bride and groom and not to us the photographers. The photographs taken are formal and informal and finished in a combination of Black & White and colour. The informal photographs are fun and fast and capture the spirit of the day. The formal images include sophisticated group portraits that are a celebration of the occasion.
The ethos of our studio is to encourage people to relax and enjoy the photography process. In all situations we use our experience to create images that are informal, natural and spontaneous, that show the essence of who you are. The pictures will testify to a wonderful day; cherishes memories that can be reflected upon forever.
Planning the day.
Success rests on planning and research, and you work with Jenny, our primary photographer, all the way through this process. We start with your list of photographs. Jenny suggests pictures that may have been forgotten and this list is worked into the proceedings, creating the photo schedule for your wedding day. For full day weddings there are normally two photographers who both visit the church and reception venue before the day to go through the photographs.
Pre-wedding shoot. To ensure that you can relax on the wedding day and not worry about being photographed, Jenny recommends a complementary pre-wedding shoot a few months prior to the wedding. This gives you and Jenny a chance to get to know each other, and for you to get accustomed to alternative contemporary photography
