The Day
May 3rd, 2015 was a special day for Brad and Sarah at the Cotswold’s wedding venue, Dumbleton Hall. For over two years, I had been involved in their plans regarding their wedding day. They had been together for over ten years, lived together and even had two dogs together. They had put so much heart and soul into their wedding day that it filled each moment with such deep emotions. Between watching the groom tear up whilst getting ready for his ceremony, to the granddad of the bride seeing her for the first time in her dream dress.

Do tell us a little bit about yourself?
I was born and raised in the United States (New York to be exact), living in different cities around the states until I had moved to England in 2013. I have been a photographer for over seven years, and a cinematographer for the past two years. I started out with a simple Polaroid camera; I was fascinated with photographing special moments and capturing the emotion. I’m married with two kids, whom I believe builds my creativity and drive every year as the emotion invested into my family allows me to connect even more to clients and theirs.

How would you describe your photography style?
I would say that my style is more quirky and natural. I prefer to photograph with natural lighting, and manipulate the sunlight to create a magical feel in images. I love the natural look on wedding days, and photographing moments how they happen rather than staging them perfectly.

What did you love about the day?
I loved that the bride and groom had gotten members of their family involved in separate parts of the wedding, for example the nephew was the pageboy, the granddad walked Sarah down the isle, and Brad’s aunt had read a heartfelt poem she wrote during the ceremony. It had really made an impact on the wedding day, as it defined what marriage was about, becoming a family.
