When shooting I have the absolute privilege to meet amazing people and bare witness to the most beautiful of sentiments; a look , a touch, a hug or kiss, or simply a small loving gesture.
This is very, very special to me. It’s not just my branding its the start of a story …
The tree is an Oak Tree and by no mistake is the foundation of my life.
My surname is Oakman and of course you can now see the connection as it loosely translates to ‘family who lived by the Oaks’.
The people kissing under the tree represent my Mother and Father, Helen & David.
I see them as a young couple in the 1960’s having fun, in love, sneaking off to steal a kiss from one and another in a time of courtship.
I treasure this moment and am so grateful that this image exists, without it I don’t think I could ever appreciate the ‘young’ love that our parents had before us.
I’m a no bullshit kind of person. I love what I am able to achieve with my couples and truly feel so grateful to be apart of peoples best day. I always get asked why I work such long hours at weddings and why I stay for receptions. In truth I love what I do. I have a personality that makes it easy for me to create a rapport with people quickly. I will get the best of me on your wedding day because I genuinely care so much about what I do for couples. Make no mistake I treat every wedding as important as the last , I am entrusted to deliver your day back to you with fondness.
