CATHERINE'S BESPOKE DOC MARTINS!
I love photographing weddings in Tynemouth, there's such a lot of interesting churches and venues and hotels and some of my nicest photography in the last couple of years has been created at weddings in Tynemouth.
Last summer I photographed Catherine and Gary's wedding at The Grand Hotel Tynemouth and we had a ball, and as seems 'de rigeur' we ended up on Tynemouth Longsands one the speeches were over and everyone had had plenty of champagne!
Gary has kindly send a review of my performance as photographer at their wedding, and as he is a very talented videographer and photographer too, there was no pressure ... :)
"...Photography is something a lot of people misunderstand. I earn my living from it too so I know how easy some people think it is.
Given that anybody can buy a camera these days, even in things like their phones, surely this means that anybody can be a photographer, right?
Wrong - and Dirk proves exactly why, because there’s much more to photography than just taking a picture. What Dirk did on the wedding day of Catherine and I was not just capture what was happening and where, but pressing his shutter at exactly the right moment and from exactly the right angle to crystallise everything into beautiful, artistic images that help us remember a day that, to be honest, was all a bit of a blur in our heads (when it’s your turn, you’ll see!)
Taking amazing photographs is only one of Dirk’s many skills, and his other skill is far less common, because throughout the day Dirk, while never stopping, was only visible when he needed to be.
Amazingly, he took everything he needed and that we wanted without ever making his presence felt, unless it was time to stage portraits and quick group shots or respond to requests, in which instances his friendly manner and good humour set people at ease and brought out their best for the photographs.
An intrusive or overbearing photographer can easily get in the way and slow things down, while one that is too timid may well miss something magical. Dirk is neither, and we can safely say that his presence was as professional as it was welcome and enjoyable.
Selecting the right wedding photographer is a big decision, and we made the right one.
So thank you Dirk for helping make our big day everything we wanted it to be, and for producing a portfolio of photographs and wedding books that has stunned all who have seen them.
