I am a female photographer currently splitting my time between London and Staffordshire, hence the variance in the shoot locations documented in my blog. My style is a mix of portraiture and documentary photography, which means for most of the day I photograph your wedding day as it's happening, capturing the authentic moments which can never be recreated. However, I also believe in being a discreet photographer, blending into the background, capturing the bridal preparation, to the intensity of the marriage ceremony, or the joy of the bride and groom straight afterward they become husband and wife, the classic mantelpiece family portraits, the laughter with family and friends: I will capture all these different parts of your day in a way that creates a set of images to tell the entire story of your wedding day.
I work with the top of the range professional Nikon photography equipment, such as Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f2.8 and the Nikon AF-S 17-55mm f2.8 VR lenses which are vital for low light churches and venues, aswell as fast-movers on the dance floor (we all have them). Even if you do not book with Toland Photography I would strongly advise that this is something you check with your choosen photographer or they will miss those quality moments. I have also received accreditation by Adobe (professional editing software) so that you can be rest assured that your images will be edited to the highest possible standards, and yes I can easily remove any unwanted blemishes, so if on your big day one should appear they will not show up in your pictures.
If you are like many of my brides, having a female wedding photographer with this particular style is a huge plus, as well as a personal choice. It is all about who you, as the bride and as a woman, feel most comfortable with on your big day. As a bride you are going to spend a good few hours getting ready in your hotel room or bedroom with your photographer discretely taking tasteful images of you, your dress, your beautiful shoes. If you feel that you would feel more comfortable having a female wedding photographer around at this point, then this is just one of the reasons to choose Toland Photography.
I have great wedding packages that range from 4 hours to a full day, starting at £499 as well as many additional a la carte options including engagement shoots and a private online viewing gallery of all your high resolution images. All high resolution images (watermark free) including a movie presentation of your top and/or favourite images with your choice of musical accompaniment can be supplied on a USB flash drive with full printing rights so you can print at a location of your choice, again this is something to check with your Photographer if you chose not to go with Toland Photography, it usually comes with an additional charge.
