Questions and Answers

How fast are you as far as turnaround time, weeks, months etc.?

Luke Middlemiss Photography

I provide all of your edited images within 2-4 weeks. Sometimes (depending on my current workload) they may even be ready earlier. Read what brides write about my turnaround times.  I cannot begin to tell you about some of the horror stories that I’ve heard about other photographers taking months after months to get your precious moments to you then there are some who have… simply lost your images or just went out of business. Sad but true. This has never happened under my watch nor will it ever happen with me because I back up all your images in 4 different places.

We’re a bit nervous about being photographed, having forced smiles and awkward poses, how do you handle this?

Luke Middlemiss Photography

Over the years I have developed a knack for making everyone feel comfortable around me. This comes from being a sincere and genuinely fun person. Because of this my work always appears natural and full of joy for all my couples. I use a variety of little tricks to I’ve developed during my long experience to make sure everyone comes out looking like they have had the best day of their lives. I’ve developed a kind of insight that allows me to find the optimum locations in any given situation. This ability gives couples some space to be themselves and allows the love they feel for each other to come shining through.

What makes a wedding easy or hard to shoot? The venue? The couple? The light?

Luke Middlemiss Photography

Every wedding like every couple is unique each brings its own challenges and opportunities to capture the spectrum of human emotion. Each one has its own demands and its moments of effortlessness.  Every wedding is a live event with many aspects totally out of anyone’s control especially the weather! Any given venue contributes greatly to the ease or difficulty of capturing momentous images. With that said adaptability has been the key to my success (and come prepared for anything). As a lover of light my vision is sensitively tuned to use it and create magic images. Whether the day is bright and sunny or full of dramatic clouds filled with rain each can be used to my advantage. However first and foremost I am there for the couple, to make them happy with full respect for them and their guests. I adore taking those gorgeous candid shots, capturing fleeting moments full of enchantment.

What advice do you have for getting the most out of our wedding photography?

Luke Middlemiss Photography

The most important advice I give is to number one, fully enjoy your wedding day with your beloved, your family, friends, and guests. Leave the rest to me and I will capture every moment for you. I will also send you (in advance) additional emails with further advice on what types of rooms in which to prepare for the day, appropriate backgrounds and above all natural light. You have no doubt put in a lot of time planning all the details of your monumental wedding day and my brief is also to capture and preserve all the effort you have put into this. I like to get all the precious little details and the surprise instants often missed by others.

Why do you like shooting weddings?

Luke Middlemiss Photography

As odd as it may seem, I started out as an electrician during the week and a lifeguard on weekends. I enjoyed shooting motocross enthusiasts and their extreme stunts for fun but I also wanted to make sport filming a job too. One day a wedding photographer who I didn't know found my number on a CD and loved my motorbike video. He said come and film a wedding for my business as you have a great eye for filming. I was asked to bring my camera skills to shoot a wedding. It was the first time I went to a wedding in my life and I was filming it. It changed my life. The results so wow-ed my them that they recommended me to others and suddenly discovered something that I truly loved to do. In essence, I found my dream job one that not only makes me extremely happy but all the couples I have worked with as well. In short, I am a genuine people person. I love being around joyful people and what better way to do so than at weddings. I sincerely love capturing wonderful memories for couples and the creative challenges that it presents.

Could you describe your style in detail?

Luke Middlemiss Photography

I would call it a documentary style like that of an impartial observer, very raw and with a candid feel. However, I always do this with a touch of glamour and I make sure to catch that sparkle in your eyes!  Your deep emotion will come through with a genuine and natural joy. This is what separates me from most photographers, it is not just the images themselves, but the energy that I bring to your wedding day and my willingness to provide a peak experience for you. This translates into breathtaking photography and a wonderful adventure for you on the greatest day of your lives.
