Introducing Ed Godden Photography
Today we tell you a little about Ed Godden, a fabulous wedding photographer based in Nottinghamshire.
Ed Godden is an award-winning photographer based in Nottinghamshire. He shot his first wedding when he was just 18 years old and now at the age of 34, he enjoys photographing weddings as much, if not more now than when he started all those years ago. After spending 12 years as a press photographer for national and international publications he decided to go it alone and hasn’t looked back since. Capturing creative, stylish and relaxed images on a couple’s big day is primarily what makes Ed “Tick!” He gets no greater satisfaction than knowing he’s captured beautiful images that a bride and groom can look at and show off for years after their wedding day.
So what makes Ed different from every other wedding photographer? He knows the importance of building a strong relationship with the couple long before the big day. As soon as a couple have booked him to cover their wedding day Ed sets up a complimentary pre-wedding shoot with the happy couple.
This is a great way of not only letting the bride and groom know how he works, but it’s also a fantastic way of allowing them to know what to expect on their wedding day, experiment with poses, and more importantly, feel at ease with Ed photographing them. “A couple are trusting a hell of a lot on the photographer” Ed says. “With only one chance of getting the shots they want to cherish forever, you can’t afford to book a photographer that isn’t going to listen to what you want. By having a pre-wedding shoot with me I can meet the couple (at the venue if they wish) hear exactly what kind of shots they want, and ultimately give them a stunning collection of images that they deserve”.
With wedding bookings coming in for all over the UK, Ed is always happy to travel and loves shooting weddings for people that want a set of beautifully creative images that document their day exactly how they remember it, and shot in a completely unobtrusive and reportage style.
