Full Description
  • To me, wedding photography is not just about taking a nice photo of a bride in her wedding dress, or your first kiss as husband and wife. It is about freezing time for you. Capturing your true emotion on the day, a memory for you to look back on a re-live the feeling you got when you said "I do". It's not just about being a photographer for you, but being a friend you can trust on your big day to help create and capture your most important moments. Each of my clients will receive a free engagement shoot with every wedding booked. This gives us a chance to work together before your wedding so you will feel more comfortable on the day. It also gives us a chance to get to know each other more and to find out more detail of what you would like captured. Every wedding is unique in its own way. So I offer you a genuine, fun and friendly wedding photography service that can always be customised around your needs. Get in touch with your Enquiry today!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Unique, Natural, Fun, Friendly, Professional.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Try not to stress! Stress can cause a lot of friction on you and your partner. Things may get a little hectic no matter how organised you are, but once you take that first step on the aisle and see you partner standing there, all your worries will disappear.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Before a couple books me I like to meet up with them first, have a good chat to get to know them more as a couple and to get a lot of detail on what they would like to be captured on their day. If they are happy and would like to book me, then we will arrange a free engagement shoot for them so they get a chance to work with me before their day to make them feel a lot more comfortable and familiar with how I work.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
To introduce my glass ball into my wedding photography. It has given an amazing effect and a great and creative new prospective on my images.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Wellies and colourful umbrellas! No one will see your wellies under your dress and it will keep your shoes clean for when you go inside. I say colourful umbrellas because no one wants to turn up at a wedding and see dark and dull umbrellas all over the place. Even if it rains, it can still be a colourful and magical experience for you both.
