Aren’t we all different yet with our own unique personalities? Like chalk and cheese?
Yet, we all do share one common trait with you – we love weddings! The cake, the feast and the general bonhomie apart, we love the moment.
Weddings are all about choosing the right partner, right? It’s about the trust and the understanding and the excitement that is mutually shared. And we know the most important day of your life needs to be frozen in time, saved for posterity in the most beautiful way it can be.
We chase the light but leave you alone. We will let you focus on your moments without losing ours. We know it’s a day unfolding in all honesty and love, so we will wrap it up in the uniqueness that it deserves – candidly and passionately.
It’s also what we like to call our wedding photography style - pictomentary – picture documentary, of course – that stars the two of you, capturing the true essence of your wedding moments.
Not just merely documenting the best day of your life but being in the moment and weaving a story around those moments filled with love and passion. And gift wrapping those with the very same love and joy you built them with.
We like to tell stories and find those frames that you would want to cherish for the rest of your life. And the day after the wedding or a year later or even a few decades down the road when you look back at those lovely frames and smile and feel that lump in your throat and moist eyes, you will know we were just as excited as you were on that day.
And you’ll feel it all over again - the build-up to the day, the trials and joys of preparing for a wedding and capturing the love and the passion, the tears and the laughter and every emotion that only a frame can freeze.
Being there on your special day and capturing it in a way you want it remembered best and forever. All your special moments, big and small, just become ever so much delightful each time you revisit it.
Lights Camera Action - time to meet the little elves who work hard behind the camera to tell your beautiful story!
Meet Cedric and his team of ace photographers who bring their wealth of talent and experience to make sure your special day is fully covered. Actually, they are more than storytellers. What else do you call those who tell a beautiful story of two people deeply in love with each other and coming together for eternity!
With their years of training their cameras (there is a truckload of other equipment too!), they know a thing or two about two things – weddings and photography.
Their unique photojournalistic wedding photography style helps to create stories – both frames and video – that should bring out the best of your big day. As you go about your busy moments, Cedric and his team quietly and unobtrusively spot those lovely candid shots and freeze them. And when those ubiquitous bridal portraits and the happy family portraits need to be taken, they know exactly how to get those too.
The fact that they blend utmost professionalism and a knack to make everyone feel relaxed and even join in on the fun when required, helps too!
Some of our weddings were featured in Love Wedding Festival wedding blog, Modern Wedding Magazine, Complete Wedding Magazine, Bride Magazine, My Wedding (formerly known as Bride To Be magazine), Bride's Diary Magazine and Polkadotbride.
This rare behind the scenes photo with my girls at a recent family wedding. Among photographers, there's a loose rule that you never photograph your family or friend's wedding at the risk of losing a friendship over something which at times can be quite subjective. I have chosen to take on a few of these assignments and whilst there is more pressure to perform, it doesn't bother me too much.
Whether you're my family, friend or a couple I have yet to meet; you entrust me with the most important milestone in your relationship, and I will be your guide on your wedding day and give you my very best to capture your wedding beautifully, every single time.
This recent review by our bride, Ally on our Facebook page sums up what we do best:
I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart, my wedding wouldn’t have been the day it was without Cedric and his Chalk and Cheese Team.
If you are after a photographer who has an absolute talent for capturing emotion and understanding that the small moments are just as important as the big ones, then Cedric is your man. Cedric completely understood our vision and the importance of family and culture on our special day, and captured all those moments so beautifully. We love his wedding photography style.
Not only is Cedric an amazing photographer but also a great director. He somehow managed to turn 1 groom and 2 groomsmen, who have never taken a nice photo in their lives, into 3 very handsome men on camera. He made them feel comfortable, looking great and no awkward hands or arms LOL.
The service from Cedric and his team is over and above what I could have ever imagined. From the very first email nothing was ever too much and he helped answer every question I had. From helping me pull my run sheet together, and helping with finalising our location shoots. Not to mention on the wedding day Cedric made the extra effort to learn everyone’s names in my and my husband’s family, and was so helpful with my 7 year old step-daughter making sure she was one of the most important people on the day.
I honestly cannot thank Cedric and his team enough, he ensured that the magic of our day was captured forever, and all those small moments we will never forget.
When we received the wedding highlight video, we can't stop watching it. And my husband, Jesse can't stop crying. They nailed it. It's amazing.
