Hi I’m Sam, passionate photographer with artistic roots, providing relaxed documentary wedding photography with a creative, alternative, edge. I have a love of the visual, the quirky and capturing the ‘feel’ of every occasion as it unfolds. My mantra is ‘finding the beauty in the everyday’ and I jump at the chance at weddings, however simple or opulent, to capture details, moments and the bigger picture in a way that gives you the feeling of being there all over again. I am a big fan of meeting people and love hearing your ideas and thoughts in the run-up to the big-day and finding out what will make your wedding unique to you. I’ll make sure we have a few meet-ups to get to know each other (you won’t be wanting a stranger documenting the most personal day of your life!) and can help you fine-tune timings in planning stages to get the best photographic coverage. I also thoroughly recommend booking a Pre-Wedding Shoot to get comfortable having a camera pointing at you (and as a fab pre-wedding keepsake!) My packages are based on length of booking and include a full gallery/USB of high-res images as standard. Optional add-ons include a Second-Shooter, a Photobook/Album and a Pre-Wedding Shoot (highly recommended!) Photobooks/Albums can also be arranged after your final delivery of images and there will be the option of ordering professional quality prints/canvasses through your gallery. Investing in a photographer can be a big deal and if you’re nervous about taking the plunge, or not sure what kind of package you need, I’m always happy to chat things through over a cuppa or by phone/skype before we get the ball rolling. Looking forward to hearing from you!

What is your most memorable wedding?
So far this has to be the wedding with a truck festival next door where the bride and groom ended up on a truck for a photoshoot! Loved the fun and spontaneity of the moment (and the initiative of the bridesmaid who made it happen!) You never know where amazing photo-opportunities are going to come from!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Storytelling Natural Fun Relaxed Artistic
What about your business are you most proud of?
My images - and the connections made with people through being such a big part of their planning for their special day.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Make your wedding day about you and let it show your personalities. Don't feel pressured to follow trends or fulfil expectations of others. The day is about your love and celebrating a new life together. You'll have the best time with your own stamp on things.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I don't think there is one photo as every couple is different - I never adopt a 'one-size-fits-all' approach. The #1 thing for all couples, though, is that the theme throughout the photography communicates their personalities and connection together.
