- No posing. No fake smiles. I want to tell the straightforward and honest story of what happens on your wedding day, from the preparations in the morning until the dance floor is full. For me wedding photography is about the genuine moments, reactions, emotions and atmosphere. Each wedding is unique, and that’s what I want to capture, without interrupting your celebrations to make you pose for me. It’s a day that you spend a long time planning so carefully, filled with excitement, suspense, emotion, drama and fun. It can pass you by incredibly fast, gone in a flash. I believe that great wedding photography should be about creating a timeless record that enables you to relive these fleeting moments forever. Known as documentary or reportage wedding photography, or sometimes wedding photojournalism, my approach simply means that I tell the real story of your whole day through my images, with no contrived posing, prompting or intervention. I’m not interested in dragging you away from the party for a photoshoot. You have the rest of your lives together to pose for portraits. Your wedding is a once in a lifetime experience to be enjoyed to the full with your family and friends, not your photographer.

Describe how you got into photography.
I studied photography at school, art college and university, but ended up in a design career. Some friends asked me to shoot their wedding in 2003 and I quickly figured out wedding photography didn't have to involve bossing people around and taking boring group shots. When I looked for a wedding photographer of my own in 2005 I realised I could compete and took the plunge. It is now 10 years and 300 weddings later.
