Full Description
Photographing people enjoying the happiest moments of their lives is an immense privilege for me! Your wedding day is one of the most important occasions of your life - a fusion of celebration and solemnity, ceremony and partying that you’ll want to remember and share for many years to come. I would never wish to impose a 'package' on my wedding couples - I respect your individuality above that - so will work with you to tailor my services to your requirements. My natural documentary style retains the visual impact of immediacy, often catching moments that you may not even be aware of taking place; moments, that when you later see them for the first time, will enrich the context of your day. For balance, I also like to include photographs with fine art and classical elements. When you engage me as your photographer, I'll get things moving straightaway by sending you a wedding day photography contract and itinerary to peruse, partially completed with the details as I understand them, then we'll arrange to meet. To secure the date, a deposit of 25% will be required. Typically I'm commissioned to photograph for the entire day, without limitation - that is my joy! Ultimately, it's about what you want from bridal preparations through to the end of the celebrations. All weddings are photographed by me, personally, but the logistics and size of your wedding might necessitate me to bring a second photographer for all or part of the day. Engagement shoot?

I was a bridesmaid for a wedding that Andrew was the photographer for and oh my goodness the photos were fantastic! The wedding was in Italy so we all travelled there for a big holiday! I have such wonderful memories of the week and Andrew took the photos to ensure it stayed that way! We got to see the photos in digital format as well as in a gorgeous printed wedding book that my sister (the bride) now has on her coffee table! I always look back on the pictures with warm memories of one of the best days ever! Thank you Andrew for capturing the magic of the day!

He is so obviously passionate about what he does..
We couldn't recommend Andrew highly enough! The work he did for our wedding this Easter was truly amazing. He is so obviously passionate about what he does, and the end results were fantastic. Andrew put thought, time, care and professionalism into our day and it is so good being able to relive our special moments over and over through his fantastic shots. We are both so happy with our photos and will certainly be recommending Andrew to anyone that we can!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Utterly impossible to choose just one! The Turkish couple at Stapleford Park; The couple at Trinity College Cambridge; The UK couples in Sorrento, Zurich, Hinterthal, and Bergau all spring happily to mind

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, Documentary, Classical, Fun, Candid

What about your business are you most proud of?

No two weddings, or couples, are alike. I listen intently to what you have planned, your expectations and your aspirations, thereby making myself a useful, yet unobtrusive, member of your team, in order that the best outcome for your Wedding Day photography will be achieved.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Book your photographer early! As a photographer, I have useful insights about the flow of the Wedding Day to share with the couple. I always check through the details and achievability of the itinerary from a photography aspect, which usually results in the couple making tweaks and changes. Above all, the couple must be able enjoy their day in the knowledge and confidence that I have the photography under control, yet am experienced and flexible enough to accommodate any changes that might take place.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Two: 1) little table gifts that support a charity or cause that is close to the couple's heart. 2) A small piece of fabric with truly touching significance - wedding dress, scarf, tie, or similar that has been passed down through a family, or from a family member, and sensitively woven into the Bride's gown.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meet and talk as soon as we can. Bat about ideas, go through the itinerary, take some photos and build rapport. This pays absolute dividends as there are no surprises nor awkwardness for us on the Wedding Day itself, but just a simple reassurance.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Couples will have their own ideas about this, but for me, I look for those little oasis moments, such as the deeply reflective look on a proud father's face when he gives his daughter away, or a quiet exchange between the couple in the midst of the busyness of everything that's going on around, Mum's emotions...

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Lots of BIG umbrellas - embrace the opportunity that rain presents!

Describe how you got into photography.

By nature I am a creative type, and photography has been with me for as long as I can remember. Having run my own building business, as well as having had a significant corporate career, there came a natural watershed moment, a point of departure, when I needed no longer to be driven by business, but drawn by passion. After 30-odd years in the making, my freelance commercial & wedding photography career began!
