- As a Leica camera photographer, using both digital and traditional film I have found myself as a wedding photographer for photographers. Perhaps partly for the comfort that I know my trade and because “Leica” and “Hasselblad” cameras are very well regarded. My documentary style of photography is peaceful and unobtrusive, capturing the tiny details, the intimate moments and the wider scenes. I work closely with you beforehand so we are aligned and then blend into the background on the day itself. I provide a calming influence when needed and help ensure your day runs smoothly. With a female model photography background my style is influenced by beauty whether people, detail, light or moment. Film photography has become a bit of a lost art in the digital age but everyone still loves to emulate the film look with apps such as Instagram. If you want the real thing for your wedding please ask. Equally if you appreciate black and white photography for that classic fine art look please ask me. My Wedding Photography Style – My cameras don't have the popular full auto-everything button, instead, I twiddle and turn various knobs and dials to create each image. That is the reason I also teach photography and why I am fully engaged in every wedding I cover.
