Full Description
  • To me weddings are about people. I capture the real personalities and characters. The emotions, the joy, the love, and the humour that is unique to you and your wedding. I don’t dictate, I just leave you to get on with your day and be yourself. In fact the more fun you have, the more you enjoy your wedding day,the better the pictures will be. You only get married once so it makes sense to get it just right. I'm a wedding photographer based in Gloucestershire but I also cover The Cotswolds, the surrounding counties,across the UK and overseas. I can offer full or part coverage, images on a USB stick plus a selection of handcrafted albums and products.

Describe how you got into photography.
I’ve been taking pictures since the age of 11, when my father gave me his old Voigtlander 35mm camera. From that moment I was hooked! I studied art and photography in Liverpool obtaining a BA Honours. This gave me good foundations. It taught me that good images depend on the right light,composition,timing and creativity. After college I went to work as a junior photographer for the magazine Motor sport and the Newspaper, Motoring news. From there I worked as a photographer on the cruise ships for a number of years before setting up my own photography business in 1999.
