Wedding Photography Information for the Bride and Groom
About Robert Christopher
Robert Christopher understands that every wedding is unique, and is willing to adapt to however You want Your wedding to be photographed.
His style for weddings is mainly reportage and candid with a few formal shots. This however, is completely up to You.
As well as traditional British weddings Robert also has experience of shooting Jewish and Greek weddings. One of Robert’s specialities is in capturing a wedding day without getting in the way and stopping You enjoying Your special day.
Although based in London Robert has worked on weddings in the South of France, and once was even flown to Riga to shoot a wedding.
Robert has worked as a full time photographer for over 10 years, photographing many celebrity parties. Before this he worked as a photographic assistant working on shoots for magazines, including Marie Claire.

Guide to amount of time needed.
Please allow for about 20 to 30 minutes for group shots if possible. It is advised to keep group shots to between 12 and 18 shots to allow You to spend time with friends and family before the meal.
Ideally Roberts likes to leave 5 to 10 minutes between the service ending and starting the group shots. This gives the guests time to congratulate You directly after the service.
If possible please allow 15 minutes in Your day for Robert to do some more artistic shots of just You and Your partner.
Other things to check
Please check with the priest or whoever is taking the service that they allow the kind of photography You want taken during the service. (some priests only allow photography from the back of the church)
