Wedding Photography with KLD Photography
KLD Photography Wedding Style
My wedding style is described as natural, fun & authentic. I love to create that raw emotion in a gallery of images that you will treasure for a lifetime. I don't stage moments when I photograph you as a couple I want to be able to capture the natural connection between you both. On a wedding day that I photograph I let the events unfold and photograph in the background, most of the time when i chat to the couples after their wedding day they mention that they had forgot i was even there at some points.
What to expect?
We here at KLD Photography strive to tell a story about your wedding day. Are you the type that loves a daily adventure, but sometimes craves a good night on the couch? Maybe you are just the opposite? I have never really been the sort to settle for one side of that fence and I shoot that way too. I love a romantic and intimate moment on your wedding day but your day is bigger than that. It is full of fun, quirky, and bold moments with your family and friends. I love the challenge of anticipating what’s about to happen, being able to capture the unexpected. I tell all my couples to explore my blog. It’s so important you see a full coverage through my lens. I would consider it an honour to document your season of love, growth and new beginnings.
What you will get?
You will get someone who dances when they get a great shot. If you cry I will no doubt cry. I am there on your day to be a helping hand not just a photographer. You will get my genuine support. I will truly embrace your love story and all of its details. I like to try and crack jokes even though most laugh at me not with me. Every wedding I photograph tells a different story and I would love to capture yours through my lens.

Full Day Wedding Photography?
My top package is a full day wedding package. By full day I mean full day. This means I do not leave until the bride and groom leave the reception. I feel a lot of other photographers say they offer a full day package but this only means until after the cutting of the cake. I'm one of the very few who stay right until the end. I believe that the entire wedding deserves to be remembered including the reception. I also have smaller packages for those smaller shorter wedding days. A full day generally lasts around 10-12 hours and I will be there from your getting ready to the end of your reception. Because what would be the alternative? Pack up in the middle of your wedding and go watch a movie? Your memories are important!!
THERE’S MORE TO YOUR RECEPTION THAN A CAKE CUT – I WILL STAY FOR ALL OF IT
Bride Getting Ready
Getting ready is a big part of your wedding day, and no album is complete unless the story is told in full! At this stage, you are excited, nervous, and even a little bit scared. Knowing what lies ahead is a big deal, this is the time when you’ll hug your parents for the last time as a single lady, the time when all your best friends and bridesmaids stand by and encourage you, when you look your very best, freshened up, and your hair looks perfect. This is also when I will capture some beautiful candid moments of your preparation, some details, the rings, the dresses, and some the most beautiful portraits you’ve ever seen of yourself, on the most important day of your life..
Groom Getting Ready
Limiting the coverage time usually means having to sacrifice many stages of your wedding. It could mean skipping the groom coverage, bride coverage, or both. I intend to correct this trend one wedding at a time.
The groom getting ready is the one part of the Wedding that the Bride does not see on the day, and is an integral part of the Wedding and we love revealing to the Bride the macho antics and silliness that her man and his mates get up to before the wedding, but more importantly the care that the Groom takes to look his best for his beautiful bride’s most important day of her life.
Grandma would love a picture of her sharp-looking grandson too!
I structure your Wedding photography coverage to capture your complete day, without any shortcuts.
It's the official part. The first time dad walks the bride down the aisle, first time the groom sees his bride, the first kiss, the offical statements. It's everything!
I intend to capture everything as it is and without letting you know i'm there.
The moments i capture throughout the ceremony I feel are the most priceless moments of your wedding day.
Family & Guests
Before your wedding day we discuss the exact family photos you would like with your family. Together we create a list and then i can organise each photo without you having to rush around gathering the guests.
These are the people YOU choose to celebrate your wedding with! They’ll come up, congratulate you, spend their day with you, and take photos with you!
During this time, you’ll know I’ll take plenty of candids, plenty of formals, and plenty of candids in between formals. Don’t forget the massive group shot as well!
It’s time for location photos. Depending on your ceremony schedule, this can happen either before or after the ceremony. This is when the bridal party gets to have fun, and get some great photos that you may hang on the wall or use as a double-page spread in your wedding album! I enjoy a candid and natural style, so rather than posing you like a look-book model, I can offer you prompts and directions, tell you bad jokes that are so bad you laugh anyway, and I let your own magic take over..
There is nothing more beautiful than genuine emotions that speak to the heart, and I endeavour to capture every moment of it. Be it the moment the groom sees the bride for the first time, or when you guys are sharing a laugh together, I capture it.
I love capturing the details of your amazing day. Not just humans but the objects and things you have around to help decorate, or your wearing throughout the day. These are the little things that your guests might not all have seen on the day, but being able to view your photos afterwards they will be able to view those little things you also had there on your day!
Wedding Receptions can take up half of your wedding day and more, most photographers say they finish after the cake cut, but it’s so much more than that! Your reception is the greatest party you’ll ever throw in your life! I love receptions, the genuine and dare I say, wild moments that transpire, and everything in between. This is an awesome time to get photos with all of your guests, have a blast, lay back and laugh at the candid moments that I capture. With our full day coverage I will stay till the end to capture your grand departure, after all, I don’t want a story told unfinished.
To me, wedding photography isn’t something you pay for and forget. It is something that will be with you for the rest of your life, bringing you and your family endless joy, remembering those moments and special people 50 years down the road. It is a legacy, keeping sure that the romance and magic of your wedding day is preserved forever.
And that is exactly what my wedding photography ensues. I follow my gut and heart throughout the day, telling the stories as they unfold in the most beautiful way possible. Nothing excites me more.
