Here, we introduce Ed Godden who we have worked with for many years. His images are timeless and quirky and he delivers a fantastic service to all his brides:
So, Ed, how long have you been shooting weddings for?
I shot my first wedding when I was just 19… which was nearly 20 years ago!
Why did you decide to become a wedding photographer?
Because I loved the thought that my hobby/passion could actually be my job too! Photographing couples in love, and meeting such amazing people every week makes me very happy. And if I can take a whole heap of cool images along the way… even better!
How would you describe your style of wedding photography?
Fun, different, creative, and colourful!
What do you enjoy the most about being a wedding photographer?
Seeing how happy couples are when they receive their wedding photos. Knowing that I’ve captured a collection of special moments that they’ll cherish forever is very fulfilling.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms currently searching for their wedding photographer?
Go with your gut feeling! There are so many photographer around nowadays that making the decision of who to choose is tough. I tell all my couples that if they like what they see on my website, then great, lets chat! Being blown away with a great first impression of a photographer work is very important. As well as making sure that you’ll get on well with your photographer too.
When you’re not behind a camera, what are your favourite things to do?
Running. I like long distance running, and have taken part in lots of half marathons, as well as two full marathons. I’m currently about to start training for my third marathon that I’ll be running in 2017.
