- I photograph with a passion. Never forgetting that it is your day, I excel in photographing unseen moments, getting the atmosphere and the joy of the occasion. With packages that suit all budgets, your images are given special care to bring the most out of every capture. I prefer not to limit my hours - I'll shoot from start to finish, and after the first dance I'll still be shooting if there is a story to tell. You may almost forget I'm there, because I shoot unobtrusively. Natural light when it is called for, or gentle use of flash when it's not - I don't limit my style, I just get great images for you to enjoy time and time again. Every photographer has their own style, and I shoot with a natural feel. No heavy processing, just honest and beautiful. A style that you will still love in years to come. And with a family heirloom so precious, I can offer sumptious albums - each designed by myself and handmade so each is unique. Or for when you just need a digital solution, I can provide just that for you too... your choice as always. And when there is a special image or two, I offer amazing bespoke framed prints. Printed in house to archival standards and with custom made frames, these stand proud on any wall. I am trusted by some of the leading party planners and have a client base that includes celebrity and the uber-rich. I shoot for everyone and a modest gathering is just as much fun as a large formal event. I'm based in West London, but I shoot all over. And I'd love to shoot for you too.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Any wedding has wonderful memories. Is it the couple? Is it one of the images? Is it something funny that happened? I change my mind every time I ask myself the question.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural Beautiful Honest Lovingly-crafted Memorable
What about your business are you most proud of?
Eevry client I shoot with loves my work and they enjoy my company. Several have become friends and I'm asked back to shoot family pictures years later. I shoot only a handful of weddings and parties each year so that each will be fresh and individual. I treat every couple, every family, every party planner as if they were the only client in the world. Every image is carefully handcrafted after your day. There is no mass production here - only TLC at every stage. And at the end of a long, day of hard work - you'll wonder how I'm still so smiley and friendly. It's because I love what I do.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
So many thoughts... Don't panic, it will all be fine on the day. (It doesn't all have to be perfect, it just has to be the two of you together).
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Pop over and we can chat. Thee's nothing like a shared pot of tea and chocolate HobNobs and a good chat. We'll talk about your plans, your hopes, and of course we'll have a look through some complete albums. Don't worry about committing to digital or album deliver just yet - you can decide later. We'll talk a couple of times at least before the wedding. If it is local enough then I'll hope to visit the venue if it is new to me. If it helps, I can chat with the church or ceremony venue to settle nerves and allay concerns. I'm on the phone if you have any questions. I offer a personal service and that's true from start to finish. On the day I'll be early and ready. I'm relaxed about things and little phases me, so you get on with enjoying yourselves and don't worry about the photography.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Nothing forced, something that says "you."
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas and perhaps a "B" plan at the venue. And a sense of humour - nothing goes 100% to plan.
Describe how you got into photography.
I've been shooting broadcast TV for 20+ years. My clients started asking me if I could shoot stills for them and so it started slowly. Much of my work is in the demanding world of commercial photography, shooting for blue-chip clients, but over the last 10 years I've carved out a reputation amongst sveral of the UK's top party planners as being one of the best. Weddings, parties, commercial, advertising... it's all great fun.
