Congratulations on your engagement!
The art of seeing but not to be seen is crucial in capturing those natural candid moments. I set out to tell the story of your very special and personal day through photos. I don’t interrupt or get you to pose for the camera constantly which helps me capture relaxed and natural coverage. I’m certainly not one of those photographers who bark orders at people or pose them like mannequins.
Having been a wedding professional for 5 years, I’ve shot events in all locations, in all weather, with all types of lighting and under all kinds of scheduling, so feel assured that you’re in safe and competent hands
I love shooting engagement shoots, they are a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera and a perfect opportunity to get to know each other. Most couples also use their images for invitations, signing albums and more. we can discuss this when we speak. Engagement photoshoots start from £100
As a Wedding Photographer I love visiting new venues and exploring locations.Packages are based upon weddings anywhere in the United Kingdom. I also cover weddings abroad on request.Yes! We will go wherever you want us to, both in the UK and Internationally. If you are having a destination wedding there is a real benefit to choosing a wedding photographer local to you and not your venue, as you will be able to build up a relationship and rapport before your wedding. We do not charge travel expenses for weddings throughout the UK. Outside of the UK, as a destination wedding photographer, we would work out a suitable fee for travel and accommodation with you at the time of your quote.
I offer flexible packages that will suit most weddings.The main event is always captured but the full day package allows for more key moments during the timeline. A second shooter option is available for an extra cost allowing more angles on the day including groom prep and candids .Bridal preparation isn't about photos without make-up its about capturing the details and moments that help to tell your story.
People tend to hire me for my relaxed documentary style of photography, but I do like to include some formals in the final set of photos. I also understand that some people from an older generation (not mentioning any names Mums and Dads) like to have some of the more traditional shots and it’s nice to keep them happy. I understand how important family group shots are but try to keep it to a minimum so you can enjoy your day fully.20 minutes is usually more than enough
I offer fine art wedding albums exclusive for professional photographers handmade in the UK by Folio albums. Fine art papers used by Folio are truly worthy of their place inside their handmade albums and marry beautifully with our pigment-based inks. Folio's papers are selected to last a lifetime and have an impeccable, sustainable provenance.The range of papers will provide the effect you’re striving for. We offer a choice of matte-finished Art White and Art Cotton for all albums, with the additional thicker option of Gallery Cotton for Fine Arts Books and baryta Gallery Pearl for the Matted Albums.
What if it rains?
Most venues will have a contingency plan if the weather is poor. There will always be a spare room, stairwell or foyer for group photos and those of the bride and groom. If it isn’t too bad we can always take a walk under an umbrella and find some sheltered spots for your photos, but whatever the weather, indoors or out, I’ll make sure you get great images.
Do You Take photos during the wedding breakfast?
I don’t take pictures of people eating, no-one looks good doing it, and we want you and your guests to enjoy your food and not feel self-conscious.
What cameras and kit do you use? Do you have backups?
I use 2 professional Nikon digital cameras with a variety of lenses and flashes. I also have a extra back-up cameras just in-case.
What is the booking procedure?
Once you’ve got in touch and we’ve confirmed I am available for your wedding date, a non-refundable £50 deposit is required to secure your day along with a short booking form/contract.
