Full Description
  • Your wedding is a special experience unique to you and my aim is to capture this and provide you with the most contemporary wedding photography available today. This means I work primarily with a ‘reportage’ approach in order to capture events as they unfold and every photo in your collection is carefully edited to create something truly special. I love to take lifestyle portraits which is about documenting real-life in a relaxed and natural way and to make the experience of having your photo taken an enjoyable one. I have a unique style and is best described as reportage documentary wedding photography as I endeavour to produce photographs that are not only natural, beautiful and distinctive, but personal. I thoroughly research the venues, location and shooting options and if you have ideas for shots I would love to hear about them. I’m always looking for that instant where I can freeze and then reveal those special moments that may otherwise go unnoticed. This could be a gust of wind suddenly animating a bride’s dress whilst walking, the sudden change of facial expression of a couple whilst in conversation, or the Groom, Best man and Ushers fooling around. For me, its all about capturing the flow of events in a captivating and natural way.

Natural, artistic, documentary, fine art, unobtrusive.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Being different.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan to enjoy yourself and relax as much as possible on the day. Choose the photographer that you feel instinctively would be right for you and take the time to look closely at their portfolio, it's important to look at lots of photos from real weddings and not just the 'wow' images you see in website galleries.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Rain can look really romantic in photos and and there are many ways to use it in a creative way. We'll grab a few brollies and venture out capturing rain sharply with you out of focus and with you in focus with the rain as orbs. Shots also with you both in silhouette in a door or archway with the rain coming down behind you can be stunning or looking through a window from the outside of you both inside in shadow or lit by a soft lamp. These are just a few ways to use the great British weather imaginatively.
Describe how you got into photography.
I was an illustrator and graphic artist for a few years before I became a professional photographer and this was natural progression to capturing and creating images through a camera lens.
