I’m an old romantic at heart and love what I do. Capturing people in love on their wedding day, whether you’re the lovely-dovey, touchy feely type, or the more reserved but passionate, I love finding ways to capture that and witnessing all the fabulous moments of a wedding day.
Whether yours is a big and fabulously showy wedding or a small and intimate family oriented one, in a castle, by a lake, in a field, tipi or posh hotel, barn or registry office – my approach is to work with as much natural light as possible, quietly and discreetly working hard to capture those emotive, meaningful story-telling shots of your big day. No need to pose all day or be camera aware – just be yourself!
I combine relaxed story-telling coverage which is ‘as it happens in the moment’ type of photography, with a small handful of family group photos, together with some beautiful portraits of just the two of you. I feel every couple deserves some lovely photos of them on their wedding day, and working in a relaxed, friendly and fun way, together we’ll capture something special. Hate having your photo taken? Then you’re in good hands. You won’t be on camera all day but left to enjoy your wedding, leaving me to capture things beautifully.
I’d love to hear from you even if you’re not sure what you’re looking for yet! Feel free to call and say hello!
I have a relaxed documentary approach which means I'm unobtrusive and like to be left to do what I do best - capturing natural and relaxed moments of you and your lovely guests enjoying your wedding celebrations. I love the details, big and small and have a naturally creative, artistic eye, creating unusual and quirky shots tied in with classically elegant fine art shots. No cheesy line-ups or endless lists of group shots either. Just beautiful and stylish wedding photographs, relaxed and informal coverage. Real moments. Real emotions.
Long days filled with happy people, different characters, different stories, all coming together for a fabulous occasion! I love how different each wedding is and the challenge of capturing the day as uniquely as I can.
Love their work first and foremost. Look for consistency not just a few hero shots on their website. Find out how they work and if that fits in with what you want. Make a connection - you're going to spend all day with them so chat, meet & connect. Ask questions, it's your first time so don't worry, no question is ever silly! Once booked, trust them to do a great job - if they're a pro, they don't need hand holding or directions, they know what shots to take and when. Relax and enjoy your wedding :)
I am happy to travel anywhere in the UK or further afield subject to expenses and any overnight accommodation requirements.
