I'm not a traditional wedding photographer. My work is all about connection, capturing real love stories around the world. I make a real effort to get to know my couples. That’s why all my packages include a complimentary surrender session. A surrender session is just like a couple session, but I don’t want people to think of them as a quick one hour appointment. These sessions are about getting intimate so I can capture the essence of the couple. It takes time and work, it doesn’t just happen magically. To me, intimacy are those unique little gestures that two people share and go unnoticed most of the time. Everything I do is so that when I turn up on the wedding day, the bride and groom know me. I’m there as a friend, to capture all those little things that make the day unique to them so they never forget how amazing it was. Photos should make you cry and laugh and feel all tingly inside. They should be beautiful and artistic but mostly, they should take you back. If you've looked around and the photos made you happy and excited, if you felt like you knew the people in them even though you weren't there, if you can feel the love, then I'd love to chat. Did you say destination, travel, adventure? Yes please! I'm based in Brighton but I'll travel just about anywhere. My prices for a full day start at £1300 but I also do shorter days. Ready to rock?

What is your most memorable wedding?
My own of course! Every bride's own wedding is the most memorable and special, and that's how it should be! Strangely enough, being a photographer and all, I didn't take more than a few selfies on my wedding day. I chose one of the best wedding photographers, someone who's work I love and I often use as inspiration so I trusted him completely and felt totally relaxed.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, honest, natural, emotional & artistic
What about your business are you most proud of?
One thing you should know about me is that I'm a little OCD. I find it impossible to do things half heartedly, so I invest an enormous amount of time and effort into my work.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Just make sure your wedding is a reflection of who you are. Don't get swayed by people's comments, do what you want and don’t forget to have fun!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Step 1 - Get in touch so I can send you my brochure! (If you don’t hear form me, be sure to check your spam folder). Step 2 - Let’s go for a coffee/drink to get to know each other. Step 3 - Lets’ rock your wedding day and make beautiful photos to hang on your walls. Step 4 (optional) - Bore people to death with your wedding photos for years and years to come.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it! We live in England after all so a rainy wedding is always a possibility, make sure you have some pretty umbrellas prepared just in case and enjoy your day regardless.
Describe how you got into photography.
My grandmother bought me my first camera when I was 7 years old. I still have it in a drawer! I never thought of being a photographer, it just gradually happened. I bought my first manual camera when I was 20 and it slowly became a bigger part of my life. At some point I realised that's what I wanted to do, and here I am: self-taught, self-employed, free-lance photographer!
