Full Description
  • From the outset, I make it my business to truly engage myself with the wedding party and guests to have an understanding of personalities, emotions and expressions. The result is distinctive and very personal photographs that will capture the very essence of the most precious day or your life. My aim is to tell the story of a bride and groom's special day with beautiful portraits and natural shots that will showcase the atmosphere from the very start to the end. I use a mix of filters to create different effects to enhance imagery where required, to provide a more atmospheric feel. Bespoke designed Italian hand-bound wedding books with choice of page layout styles and cover options are available on request.

What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy your day and don't let anything spoil it. Drink, dance and kiss!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Encouraging the bride and groom to have special pictures taken with their parents and closest friends. often they're the ones who are closest to the wedding couple but don't get to spend enough time with them on the day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We meet before the wedding to discuss the couple's expectations, of both the photographs and of me, and how I can assist in delivering their dream. I discuss additional wedding products such as a pre-wedding shoot as some couples are interested in this option. When everyone is happy we sign a contract and I ask for a deposit to confirm the booking. I keep in touch via email or phone before the wedding just to make sure everything is going to plan. On the wedding day I arrive early with second photographer. We set up and start arranging and taking the shots as agreed. After the wedding I'll contact the couple and let them know when all the wedding products, albums, individual shots etc, will be ready. When everything is ready I arrange to meet the couple and deliver their products to them in person. The balance is paid on receipt of all the products in good order.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A spontaneous, natural picture of the couple whenever, and in whatever situation, it happens in order to capture the essence and beauty of the relationship between them .
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Photographing a wedding on a boat floating on the river Thames' till dusk. The surrounding skylights and natural light brought such a wonderful atmosphere to the wedding pictures.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Play some games and get the guests involved, especially the children. Set up a photo-booth and take some funky pictures. Focus on any different cultural traditions, i.e.dancing, and encourage guests to have a go. Let the wedding couple, with their glasses full of champagne, walk round saying hello to everyone, laughing, keeping the guests spirits up.
Describe how you got into photography.
After completing an art and design foundation course in London, I progressed to a BA (Hons) Degree in Photomedia. This is where my relationship with the camera began. I discovered that photography was the ideal medium for my creative expression.
