Info & Pricing Destination Wedding Photographer France Italy


I’m Andy, and I’m super excited and humbled that you are interested in having me photograph your wedding – I truly love what I do and genuinely believe that I have the best job in the world! Over the last few years I have shot hundreds of weddings all around the globe, and have been fortunate to win some of the biggest international industry awards along the way.

For me, wedding photography is about more than just photographing what happens on one day. It’s about more than just a pretty dress and a colour scheme. It’s about documenting who you are, your relationship and how it felt to be there. Your wedding photographs should be as unique and as awesome as you are. They should show you how you felt, how you loved and how you were loved. They should tell your story.

To give the best to the couples I work with, I only take on a limited number of weddings each year but I’d love your wedding to be one of them.  Get in touch and I’ll send over some more information  on how I work, my ethos and the wedding collections and different options that I offer. If my style and approach resonates with you, then I’d love to hear from you! Get in touch!

Award winning UK and Destination wedding photographer

I get to work with the most awesome couples and knowing they love their images is what drives me.  However, I have also been fortunate to pick up a number of awards over the last few years.  The most recent being the ‘Master of Wedding Photography UK & IE 2017‘ award. I was awarded the prestigious  title of the Best Wedding Photographer in England at the National Wedding Industry awards in 2015. 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 and 2016‘.  From the moment you book me, you know you are in safe hands and you will get wedding photographs that you will love.

Uk and Destination Wedding Photographer – How I work

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. It 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!
