Sometimes an image tells a story – the picture above, shows Kelly, the bride, about to open a bottle of champagne, the little girl in the background is totally awed by the spectacle and is waiting for the pop of the cork, the bridesmaid in the background is trying to capture the moment on her iPhone.

You know what ?  I can write a lot of words to describe the scene – but the words still won’t do the trick – you need to spend time looking at the picture, to take in all of the detail and to understand the scene for yourself.

In some small way – the image is a work of art .

The image has balance, harmony and depth,  the ability of the image to speak to you – will depend entirely on how much you open your mind to take in the scene fully.

I don’t pretend that every picture that I produce is art, many images are simply craftsmanship. And there is no shame in that. A well crafted image can be difficult to produce – and the hardest thing to do – is to produce a well crafted image with the impression that it was effortless.

The effort should be invisible.

All you should be aware of is a well crafted image – which might even, if I’m lucky – be considered to be art.

Both Lisa and Andy (pictures above) left a lovely review for me on a website !
Lisa’s words are below . . .
‘I can not recommend Alan Mason enough !. He is a lovely man who loves his work and wants to get the best pictures and produce the best album.
Our pictures and the album that Alan created are nothing short of amazing !
We booked two years in advance, and every time we contacted him before we got married, the responses were always enthusiastic and very quick.
He was full of amazing advice regarding pictures.
On the day itself, he was very friendly, worked like a complete trooper and was brilliant with my two young nieces (5 and 6). The pictures are really amazing.
While Alan is not the cheapest quote you will get, he is worth every single penny twice over.
If we ever need any professional photos again in studio etc, there is no doubt that we will look no further, and we would thoroughly love the opportunity to meet Alan again.’

The album is stunning. We cannot imagine a better record of ‘our event’ – it looks fantastic and really tells the story including our and our guests’ idiosyncrasies.

Needless to say, we are delighted that we had you as our photographer and will cherish the memories that you have preserved for us.

Fantastic photographer, fitted right in with our guests and captured some special moments.

Would and will highly recommend.

Thanks again,
Mark and Ellen.

Whilst primarily a documentary wedding photographer,
Alan is more than happy to customise your wedding photography to produce pictures which might be part of your own mini fashion shoot,
or pictures of family and loved ones, to become heirlooms for the future.

What is a documentary wedding photographer ?
In its purest form, documentary wedding photography will give you a record of your wedding day
with nothing posed, nothing orchestrated – simply ‘telling things as they are’.

Whilst many couples initially explain that they’d like a documentary approach to their wedding photography,
they then explain that they’d  ‘also like some posed pictures’.

Is this O.K. ?

Some posed pictures are certainly O.K. !
I am happy to photograph your wedding in any way you choose !

So you can have a set of documentary pictures from your wedding,
and you can also bolt on a mini fashion shoot, showcasing your wedding dress if you wish.

And if your relations would really like a formal picture with Auntie Hilda or Uncle Ben . . .
That’s fine. I’m happy to do that . . . as long as it’s O.K. with you of course . . .

Early in mycareer, I was awarded an A.M.P.A. (associate) status by the Master Photographers association,
and have now progressed to become a member of the influential MV group of photographers operating worldwide and working to the highest standards.
