Full Description
My style is a blend of documentary wedding photography, formal photos and natural portrait photos. I want to photograph your wedding and tell a story, watching and waiting for moments to unfold, capturing the emotions of the ceremony. It’s your wedding day so the last thing you want is a bossy photographer messing up your day, that just isn't me. I also offer Photography, Videography and Live streaming service. Why not contact me to arrange an informal meeting, where I can show you some more examples of my work, and we can discuss your wedding day photography requirements.

How beautifully John captured my wedding
I can not believe how beautifully John captured my wedding. He came highly recommended, having photographed a friend's wedding where I was a bridesmaid a few years ago, so I knew I would be happy with his work but I was blown away when I saw the final gallery. John is incredibly friendly, so professional and highly skilled. He has a knack for getting the perfect photo. He was so relaxed and easy to work with, and most of the time just blended into the background until it was time to get the group shots. He captured the spirit of the day perfectly with a great mix of candid and formal shots. After the day he promised us previews within 3 days. We had them within 24 hours. He said the full gallery would be 3 weeks and we had it in 2 and a half. I could not be happier and could not recommend him more highly. Thank you, John!

Amazing from the start
John is amazing, from the start he was so helpful and friendly! We went for a pre wedding shoot and John instantly put us at ease in front of the camera! We had to postpone due to covid and he was so accommodating. When it came to the big day, we didn’t even recognise he was there most of the time and the pictures are just amazing, 100% go with John if you need a wedding photographer!

More than we could ever have wished for!
John has been amazing and we couldn't have wished for any more from a wedding photographer. We got married during lockdown and John helped us navigate ever changing rules and regulations. We chose to move the date of our wedding 5 days before the wedding was scheduled to ensure we didn't have to wear masks. John managed to move work comitments around to ensure he would be able to photograph our day and even stayed on late into the evening to capture a stunning sunset to top the evening off. I cant recommend John enough. He made us feel at ease in front of the camera, our family and friends found him easy to chat to and the photos speak for themselves-theyre stunning.
