I credit my academic pathway of studying photography and continually striving to achieve high standards as importance in my commitment and appetite regarding everything photography related. This has installed professional thinking and a determination to succeed as a professional wedding photographer in Cornwall. I would love to be part of your big day and would put everything into ensuring the pictures created are of the highest quality and capture emotions and memories that will last forever.
I will blend into the day and help you and your guests relax and feel at ease so that I can capture those special unscripted moments that will reconnect you to your special day in years to come.
My style is documentary/photojournalistic in that I disappear into the background and watch events unfold naturally. For requested group shots and couple shots I really try not to direct and overpower the situation. I have a real battle mentally with staging and truthfulness in photography. I always shoot with a quiet calming approach and let the day unfold around me naturally. Often losing myself in framing scenes and ‘disappearing’ into the background. I follow and observe emotive moments, developing and positioning myself appropriately, using available light wherever possible to capture natural unobtrusive images of your wedding day observed with a creative angle.

Weddings really have everything; I love the pure excitement, the colours, the laughter, and the gathering of friends and family together in happiness. This continually motivates me to capture your day in an original, innovative, relevant and stylish way. You will not be entering into a photographer led vision of your day, relax and enjoy every second of it and I will capture it for you at every turn.
I think the best advice is to meet your photographer before the day and see if your personality’s match. To gauge an opinion of the photographers overall character is as important as the portfolio on the table. Can you imagine having this person around you all day on the biggest day of your life? A good photographer will have the social skills to make the couple and guests relax and enjoy the day without really acknowledging the photographer is there.
