- Being a documentary photographer means I photograph weddings in unobtrusive and observational way. I slip into the background and create images of the bride and groom being themselves with all their friends and family. By the end of the day, all the images come together to create a visual story of how the day has unfolded for people to refer back to in years to come. I prefer this style of photography, as I think people's real character and personality come out a lot more than standing in front of a camera and posing. Of course weddings are an ideal time to get pictures with friends and family, so I factor these into most weddings as well. However for most of the day, you probably won't even relise I'm around and you can just get on with enjoying the day!

What is your most memorable wedding?
Probably Andrea and Neil’s wedding – my first! They had both seen my street photography and approached me about shooting their wedding with the same approach, just capturing the day as it unfolded. It was a fantastic wedding and real honour to be involved.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Observational. Natural. Storytelling. Unobtrusive. Fun.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Definitely the satisfaction people get from the pictures. Photographing weddings is hugely enjoyable and its a real honour to be a part of someone’s big day. Seeing the pleasure that people get from the pictures just adds to that!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Relax and enjoy it!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I once went to a party and the hired photographer produced little polaroid style prints of the party throughout the event. It was lovely and people really seemed to value it. So, I now produce little credit card prints of the ceremony and early stages of the day, and put them on display for people to look at during the reception.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I’m a sucker for confetti shots
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas. Rain can provide challenges but some of the best wedding pictures I have seen are taken with the couple under an umbrella, with or without wellies on! As a photographer, it’s important to have cameras and lenses that are weather resistant particularly in the UK.
