When I think of Nana and Ryan it brings a smile to my face and I’m grateful to be able to call them my friends now.
I first met Nana at a less-than successful wedding fair in the early days of my work. No-one came but Nana was there working for Hotlz at the time. We instantly hit it off as Nana has a bubbly charm that is very endearing. It just goes to show that you should seize every opportunity with a joyful heart and an open mind as you never know where it will lead.
What I love about Nana is her energy and enthusiasm for life. Naturally warm and generous she has been a big advocate of my work and for that I can’t thank her enough. She recommended me to other wonderful couples like Terrence & Elizabeth, before I had even photographed her wedding. That is trust!
Ryan is an absolute gentleman and is the calming influence in their relationship. He is very understated and does not boast about the things he does for anyone. His words on the ‘Staggered’ feature were very moving and show his deep love for Nana.
Their wedding has been covered extensively elsewhere. There is a two part feature on the ‘Bridal Musing’ blog, plus Ryan’s piece on the ‘Staggered’ blog and one in ‘Unique Bride’ magazine. There isn’t much for me to add, so I have just posted their portraits from their glorious Great Fosters Wedding. I hope you enjoy the images.
Nana’s thoughts: WOW! is the only word I can use to describe Alex’s work. The first time I met him and saw his portfolio of work I was impressed, and it helps when the photographer is so friendly. When my partner met him, he told me Alex was so nice and easy to get on with. So it was a done deal. Of all the wedding decisions that had to be made, this was the easiest by far and once we had decided on Alex for our wedding photography we could relax. On the day Alex felt like part of the family, but just had a camera! All the guests loved him and he made us feel so at ease when we did our individual shots. The final result was a collection of fantastic and really memorable high quality wedding photos. I have literally looked at them over 1000 times and won’t stop! Alex you have turned what was an incredible day and captured all the wonderful moments. You truly are the BEST wedding photographer in London, actually the whole world! :-)
