Well where to start. We first saw Tim at our friends wedding and straight away his energy set him apart from any other photographers we ...
These days, your wedding photos can be whatever you them to be! It's really important that whoever you choose to shoot your wedding day their style is right of you guys.
I've been shooting weddings since 2009 and can't tell you how amazing it is to make such a big impact on peoples lives.
For me photographing a wedding there's many aspects to consider. First thing is that you guys can relax on the day and have the best time of your lives. I like to keep things as simple as possible.
Sure, you might want some group photos and that's cool, I've got a super easy system so it will take ages on the day, that of course there's a few pictures of the two of you. This is where the really creative side of me comes out but alongside all this is the most important part of your wedding photos, the story!
Your wedding day has genuine narrative that weaves throughout the day, and just like a book, it has a beginning and middle and an end. The characters are introduced, the events in the story unfold comment from the emotional moments to the crazy dancefloor moves and around the formality of what one would expect to be standard wedding photos is this beautiful piece of literature which all comes together in one of my slideshows.
If I'm really honest, and although it has been lovely to win awards to recognise my achievements, what most important to me is that my clients are thrilled and end up with a genuine set of fabulous images that will live long into ancestry of their family.
So whenever you're getting married, I love you to drop me a line! We can check to see if still free on your wedding day and also set up sometime for proper chat.

Making a difference! You only really know how much your photos mean to you after wedding and my couples are so fab in describing the impact it makes to them. It means the world to me!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
try not to get too stressed with all the planning and then on the day surround yourself with professionals, let your hair down and have fun!!!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Seeing photos from the pre wedding shoot dotted around the wedding venue.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
From start to finish it's all about making things simple. Choosing your suppliers is hard enough with so many out there. But essentially it's:
1 Get in touch
2 Check availability
3 Meet in person or skype, book
4 possibly have a pre weddings shoot
5 confirm the wedding day times, locations and group shots
6 Shoot the Day (woo hooo!!!)
7 Post Production
8 Deliver Slideshow
9 Deliver Online Wedding Photos Website with download functionality
10 Deliver USB (and a surprise)
11 Arrange an Album Meeting (if thats what the couple want)
12 Choose the style of album and photo selection
13 Design and proof the album
14 Order the album
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I love creative storytelling but every couple should have a few photos with their nearest and dearest. Your parents will kill me if I don't get a shot with them! Also there's moments throughout the day when it's right to grab a shot, eg the bride with her parents BEFORE she gets married..... it actually means something at that point in time as opposed to later on!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A groom once sent me a sports drink advertisement and asked is we could do something similar on the wedding day. It rocked and I got an ace shot of their eyes, with their faces hidden by their vintage crockery looking straight into the camera. It now hangs in a massive frame in their house.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Have fun, don't worry, theirs always great photos to be found and the rain keeps everyone together rather than spreading out! There's usually more of a party atmosphere on rainy day weddings!
Describe how you got into photography.
Well, quite simply mine and my wifes wedding photos were far below mediocre. Blurry, out of focus images captured at the wrong moment with poor framing by someone who promised us better. But we were on a budget. I wish we'd chosen a full time professional wedding photographer who knew his stuff. On the bright side, I told my wife I could do better, that was in 2007 and 2009 I was trained and started assisting in photographing peoples weddings. In 2015 I celebrated shooting my 400th wedding.
