Detailed Description

I capture those special moments of the day without getting in the way of the proceedings or spending a lot of time flapping around. Must of this work is reportage style but I do however, organise groups and Bride and Groom shots, normally between the service and the reception. I also put a great deal of work into craftsmanship side of my work to give the best possible quality to my clients. My photography has longevity and my clients often keep in touch with me saying they are still enjoying their photos after many years.
 I offer affordable packages ranging from 3hrs -12hrs. and work together with another professional photographer on larger weddings. I can arrange a bespoke package customised to your exact requirements. My prices range from GBP350-GBP2,500. I offer the options: disk only, print and disk, photo books, bespoke story books and albums. Images can be uploaded onto password protected online gallery so that guests can order prints direct and I can design thank you cards with one of your images. I love black and white as well as colour photos and any photos taken on your wedding day can be made into colour, b/w or sepia without additional costs. My travel costs are free for Greater London and I will also travel to locations throughout the UK, Europe and South Africa. I do not charge for travel time on my full day wedding packages, only travel and accommodation costs for venues further afield.

Describe how you got into photography.
I started out photographing celebrities for national magazines such as Radio Times. I stared do more weddings when I moved to my riverside location in Twickenham as there are so many wonderful locations right on my doorstep and furthermore my reportage style is a more acceptable contemporary approach rather than the older formal approach. I really enjoy full day weddings where my photography can tell a story of the happy event but because I am quick and spontaneous I am also happy to shoot smaller weddings.
