Hi there! I’m an award winning photographer who loves to produce beautiful and creative photography that tells the story of, and those little stories within, your wedding day.
I have been fortunate enough to be recently awarded the prestigious title of the Best Wedding Photographer in England at the National Wedding Industry awards. And was also named as one of Rangefinder Magazine‘s ‘Rising stars of wedding photography in the world 2014‘ and selected for JuneBugs exclusive, international ‘Best of the Best Wedding photographers in the World 2014‘.
Wedding photography should capture you as you are: No uncomfortable forced poses. No awkward staged scenes – just Your love, Your happiness and Your day, captured in a relaxed, easy going and unobtrusive manner. I won’t get in your way, or boss you around – My aim is to document your day, not dictate it. And you won’t have to worry about the photography – just relax, enjoy your day and let things happen as they should – safe in the knowledge I will be there.
Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is one of the most important decisions you will make. After the months (or years) of planning, the photos will be one of the few things you have left to remember it by – your children’s first family heirloom. Choosing your photographer shouldn’t be about ticking one more thing off the wedding-to-do list. It should be about finding someone with whom you both click (check out that for a pun!) and feel comfortable and relaxed around. Someone whose images speak to you. Someone, in whose photos you can imagine yourselves, your friends and your family being in. Someone whose vision and way of seeing the world appeals to your own.
If you think that person might be me, then get in touch! I’d love to hear from you, and I promise to make the happiest day of your life look exactly that (and then some!)
Life is complicated enough, so I’ve kept everything as simple as possible! I offer a single package designed to be all inclusive and offer you everything you need to get perfect photos of your perfect day and with no hidden costs or extra charges for things like travel or more hours:
