- I'm an Essex and Hertfordshire wedding photographer, and along with my amazing wife Kelly, we specialise in documentary style wedding photography and delight in providing romantic & dynamic images for our clients. I absolutely love working with Brides and Grooms to help create the memories that will live on for many years. You could say I’m quite passionate about it. As every wedding including yours is unique and special, it's not enough to just take a few posed shots – I very much believe in the importance of being in as many places as possible to capture that uniqueness, emotion and vibrancy of every wedding. If you think we'd like each other - please do contact us. I'd love to share a Coffee and chat about your loves, lives and your wedding (with no obligation whatsoever). Even if you decide not to use our services, I'd like to think I can give you a few thinks to think about when discussing your needs with other wedding photographers. And most of all, good luck with your wedding! Hope it's brilliant :-D

Location & Contact Details
What is your most memorable wedding?
I know it's a cop out..... but i'm tempted to say every single one, as every single wedding is special!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Documentary-style, Romantic, Dynamic, Friendly
What about your business are you most proud of?
I love the trust and warmth that comes from our Brides and Grooms.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Speak to as many as possible - then make your own mind up. You need to decide for yourselves what you want and don't let anyone make that decision for you - it is YOUR wedding, not theirs.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Bride who made her own wedding cake (She does it for a living). It was stunning, and a joy to take photos of.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Meet up beforehand for a free no-obligation meeting to see if we like each other. If booking goes ahead, each couple gets a questionnaire to help, and we liaise with the couple constantly to ensure everything is understood and correct. A meeting around a month before the wedding is also advised - preferably at the chosen wedding venue!
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There are so many - but I do like to make sure I catch them holding hands and grinning at each other.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A shot of the groom kissing his wife's pregnancy bump was pretty special, both in emotion and execution.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
An umbrella :-D Seriously though - some good photos can be taken while under that umbrella.
Describe how you got into photography.
Just realised it was something I loved. Didn't know anything about photography when I started, but it's become so much of my identity, I wouldn't change a thing.
