A wedding is one of the happiest days to be part of. Everyone will share so many emotions throughout the day this is why I adore being a wedding photographer. My goal is to create THE story of marriage, capture REAL life and not turn it into a posed photo shoot.
Throughout the day I work behind the scenes capturing natural, documentary style images with some romantic portraits of the two of you whilst keeping it relaxed for you both! Your portrait shoot is a lovely opportunity to spend some time together - let it sink in that, yes, you just got married! This realisation gives you that warm glow helping you with those romantic shots that you'll most likely be nervous of.
It’s really important to me that you enjoy the day you’ve worked so hard to create. You’ll never find me stepping on your toes, but if I do see an opportunity I’d regret missing, I’m not too shy to ask. This skill comes to the fore when organising the formal shots, which I do as quickly and smoothly as possible.
After a while, I start to become part of the family and everyone starts seeing me rather than the camera, which makes all the difference in capturing true emotion. For me to photograph your wedding is not only an honour but something I’ll always keep with me.
‘It’s about more than just the bride and groom’
It’s such a big day for parents and all those involved in the wedding, so I make sure to introduce myself to as many people as I can as well as looking for those perfectly sweet moments to capture. I’m a big softy when it comes to grandparents. It’s not unusual to have Grandma trying to find an excuse to have “the photographer” help her when she pretends she’s not good on her feet. For those who do struggle, I make sure they’re never on their feet for long - especially during the formal shots.
I put as much effort into post-production as I do on the day itself. I go through every image individually, colour correct & checking all the images work together as a whole, to make sure they look the best they can to suit the style of your wedding. No one is the same and every wedding is different. Your images will showcase the best of your day and more importantly, your love for one another.
My day starts when it's not too early to be drinking bucks fizz! I'll be capturing all the little details you have lovingly planned for months, with the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready and the laddish antics between the groom and his groomsmen. I’ll be with you throughout the day, ducking and diving around unobtrusively and will make my departure when the dance floor is almost empty.
Complimentary pre-wedding consultation shoot
I want to get to know you before your big day, so meeting up for a consultation is the perfect way to do so. We’ll cover your wedding details, what style of photos are important to you, and go through my samples. We will fit in a taster shoot - it’s not as scary as it sounds, honestly!
''I don't like having my photo taken'' - everyone!!
I’m very much used to hearing this - it’s the main things people worry about. Honestly - every single taster session I’ve done has been a success. It’s a huge relief knowing there’s absolutely nothing to be worried about. I’ve yet to meet a bride and groom who take bad photos - trust me - once your wedding day arrives, the flowers are ready, the dress is hanging, and the rings are safe and you are marrying the love of your life - you’ll soon forget that I’m even there.
A place your photos will call home
My signature wooden box is included in all packages. This includes all digital images and also a good wad of prints. Yes, actual prints that you can hold and look through whenever you like. Not only will the box look great on your mantlepiece but you can show people some of the best wedding photos without having to go on some sort of electronic device. I know it's a little old fashioned, but sometimes it's the simple pleasures in life that stand out. You'll also have your own password-protected gallery online at no extra cost, so not only will you be able to share your photos with your friends, you'll also be able to log in on your phone while you're out to reminisce (again)! You can share the gallery with your guests - they will even be able to download any photos free of charge, or they can purchase prints if they prefer.

Once you’ve filled in the online contact form, we will arrange your Pre-Wedding Consultation. Booking is confirmed with payment of your deposit. You will then receive a lovely package which includes loads of useful information and tips that I've put together to help you on your journey to saying "I do". My couples have commented that this information pack has been a Godsend when creating their perfect day. As this is likely your first wedding, I would really like to share the knowledge I’ve collected to help make your planning easier. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions - even if it’s nothing to do with photographs!

What you'll receive in the post when booking me in
I present my pricing in an honest and open way - no hidden charges. There are three packages; including a variety of components, from digital images to albums, thank you cards and engagement shoots. However, even these may be tailored around your individual wedding so please don't hesitate to send me any queries.
Albums can be purchased from £450. I usually arrange this after your wedding. It's much nicer to see your photos first and then build the album around them. Decisions such as album size, covers, number of pages are all easier to make once you have seen the images. All my albums are handmade in the UK and are of the highest quality.

“We are blown away! Thank you so much for your time on the day - we really appreciate how late you stayed into the evening and what a long day it was. Everyone has said what a nice guy you are and we've had a lot of people say they really liked that you came round and took photos of couples / groups while they were waiting. You've captured so many natural moments from the day and so many things we didn't get to see because we were so busy. We love the mixture of posed shots and natural shots, its exactly what we wanted and we can't wait to show them off to all our guests! Thank you so much again for your time on the day, we really do love the photos and we won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer.”
