It's your day, not mine. I will do exactly what you ask me to do although of course I can offer suggestions based on my experience if you need some advice. Your wedding is unique and I will treat it as such. I don't have a set template to follow, I go with the flow, take the pictures you want and fit in however suits you best.
Let's face it. Generic plain white backgrounds are not the best way to showcase the true personality of your family. How often do you jump around in front of a white background in your day to day lives?
I want to photograph your family having the time of your lives in your spiritual home, wherever that is. I understand – I'm a family man who loves the outdoors. So, get your creative juices flowing. Think of a location where your family can really let loose, have fun and be themselves.
Families jumping through puddles in the woods, footballers sliding in for a tackle, a bride and groom stealing a sneaky kiss, Auntie Jane letting her hair down at the reception – photographer John Steel prides himself in capturing people as they really are. And if he gets wet, muddy or covered in sand in the process, all the better.
We don't live our lives in front of a white screen, we live life in the most stunning studio of all – the great outdoors – so if you want pictures that capture you, your family or your wedding day in a fun, quirky but most of all quality way, then get in touch.
