- To me wedding photography is storytelling. I tell the story of the couple and their love for each other. I capture the personality of both the bride and the groom. This is done in a relaxed and natural way, no forced posing, just being yourself, people in love. This style is commonly known as reportage or documentary wedding photography and I love it. I love weddings. What I love more is shooting a wedding. I get a huge buzz from watching the day unfolding and capturing it with still images. I get excited about showing these to the couples and allowing them to relive the day through my images. I’ve been lucky enough that my passion has taken me to some of the world’s remotest and most beautiful regions but I have always returned to my home in the South West. Perhaps I’m biased, but I feel there’s something special about this region that’s hard to describe. It’s certainly a great place to get married. I should know – I tied the knot in 2014 in the grounds of the Somerset castle where I had lived for nearly a decade (long story)! I now live in a village in the South West with my wife Holly, though most weekends I’m somewhere else in the South West, capturing someone else’s special day. It’s one of the many things I love about this job – the constant excuse to get to know this stunning region and the people who live here. When I’m not working you’re most likely to find me wild-camping on Exmoor, surfing with old friends in Cornwall or exploring further afield in our van. If these sound like the kind of things you enjoy too, it’s likely we’re a good fit. I would love to hear from you so please get in touch.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Sam and Joe. This was an elopement down in St Just in Cornwall. It was a stunning and special moment. With only the couple, two witnesses the registrars and me! This was a special moment that I was so very privileged to have witnessed. We then explored the coast and captured some very romantic and wild moments.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, Relaxed, Romantic, Creative, Stylish
What about your business are you most proud of?
My reviews. I am very proud of my reviews and the comments that are shared by my couples that I have worked with. I am proud of my lasting impression and the impact of my work on the couples that I work with.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Saturate yourself in the day. Try and take five minutes every hour to just take stock of what is happening, the day goes quick so you need to slow it down.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
When the groom took the microphone and brought out a guitar I thought that was it. But this was an amazing performance that touched me and all the guests. With an honest and beautiful song about his new wife.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to arrange a time via email to have a chat over the phone before booking me along with a Skype chat. It's important to get a to know your photographer as well as you can. Then I like to arrange a meeting at the venue if possible where we can discuss the details of the day and learn a little more about one another. When the couple are happy to book me I take a £250 deposit and maintain regular contact with them up until their wedding day.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
That is completely dependent on the couple. I would say that the number one photo will be revealed after the wedding. This may the first look or during the speeches. It's not a scripted image but a moment that captures the day in one frame.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The bride riding a large horse after the ceremony.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas. Rain is rain. As long as you have everyone you want there and they are enjoying themselves then that is all that matters. The rain adds drama it's a challenge that you will have to face as a whole wedding party. Some of my best shots have been during this type of wedding.
Describe how you got into photography.
My sister asked me to cover her wedding as a wedding present in 2007! This was my first wedding and it was a little stressful. I had been shooting artistic landscapes and seascapes for years before trying to capture something special to provoke emotion but I realised that this could be easily done at weddings and provide me with immense emotional rewards.
