We offer a first class relaxed photography service to our clients. Packages are available covering just a couple of hours right through to the whole day. Initial face to face meeting with a short shoot just so you can see what you think of me - after all your photographer spends a lot of time with you on your big day so you need to know you what I'm like. On the day I will shoot using a number of photographic styles ranging from the photojournalistic (fly on the wall - telling the story) to the formal (posing family groups and so on) One important aspect is that I will spend quite a bit of time shooting your guests. Many couples value this after the big day - because they actually notice how much effort friends and relations made to be there with them. I try to work quickly and efficiently with the couple on the day, so as not to keep them away from their guests for too long. Having said that ask me about my secret sign! which you can deploy and I will rescue you out of any situation!!

What is your most memorable wedding?
My own! - 28 years ago this year
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, Different, Sociable, Inclusive, Black and White
What about your business are you most proud of?
Creativity - giving people what they didn't know they could have
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
OK this is not business related but spend some time thinking about what life will be like AFTER the wedding day - you have the chance to make a new start as a married couple so how are you going to make it count
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
anything that is unique about the two of you - don't worry about being someone else
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Initial meeting to discuss their hopes and plans, second meeting about a week before to finalise times, places and so on. On the day I will arrive early
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Ones with family members - not wishing to sound morbid but life is short and the occasions when whole families get together are few and far between so the ones with everyone in become treasured memories. However I enjoy doing pictures of the couple on their own!!! no bridesmaids, groomsmen or other people in the way!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Bride in the shower as she gets ready - Ask me for the story!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
You have a decision to make - shoot it or not - pictures in the rain can look passionate and fantastic but mess the dress up big time! I'd rather just go for it often the lighting is more even because of the clouds so the overall effect can be better!
Describe how you got into photography.
Aged 6 given a 120 roll film twin lens kodak camera Never looked back (apart from taking pictures)
