Full Description
Your photography is one of the most important elements of your wedding. After the day itself your album is what you will use to relive those memories and enjoy them with future generations. Since getting married in 2009 I have had a passion for weddings and all the details that go into them. I have been shooting weddings for 6 years now, every one was unique and bursting with excitement and emotion. My aim is to capture your story in an honest, relaxed and timeless way. Your processed images will usually contain a mix of colour, black and white and if you like it, some vintage too. Why do I love Wedding Photography? Quite simply its the best job in the world. Being part of two people’s special day, watching them pledge themselves to each other in front of their family and friends and recording the emotions of the day for them is one of the most satisfying feelings I have ever encountered. For me it’s about three things; sharing their day, becoming part of their day, and it’s delivering a timeless record of the bride and grooms day so that family and friends can relive the day time and time again. It's about showcasing the couple’s day in one of my wedding albums so the day can be shared with future generations, children and grandchildren. And who doesn't love looking at old photographs? One day your children and grandchildren may laugh at the "old fashioned way" but hopefully they will also "ooh and ahhh" at granny in her wedding dress. And then I will be part of a future happiness. Something I created many years ago will be giving someone in the future pleasure. And that's worthwhile. My Wedding Photography starts from only £300 for a small, intimate wedding (offering upto 2 hours coverage) and then from only £700 for Full Day Coverage. So, that’s a little about me and my Wedding Photography philosophy.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I remember every wedding I do.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classic Modern Professional Affordable Personal

What about your business are you most proud of?

90% of of my business comes from recommendations

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Planning Your Shoes: Try Them Out!! You are both on your feet for pretty much the fully day so make sure they are comfy!!! If not bring your backup, well loved trainers for the night time!!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Too many to mention them all, but a few highlights include the provision of a box of flip flops for the ladies to use on the dancefloor, and then there's the wacky and crazy cake toppers!!!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

From day one I become part of the family, part of the day. First and foremost we meet face to face to discuss YOUR needs and wants for your photography. And from there you have as much contact with me as you need up until the day. You can call, facebook, email, come knocking on my door. On the day itself I always arrive at the prescribed location in plenty of time and from that moment my cameras (yes I always carry more than one camera!!) never stop clicking. Depending on the season etc it will usually be upto 4 weeks maximum for you to receive you proofs.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

I would say 2.... The moment the bride's father see his daughter in her dress for the first time, and then the same for the groom seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time. Some photos you just can't repeat!!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

On an upcoming 2016 wedding I have been asked to create the bridal party "Running away from a T-Rex"!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Plenty of wedding brollys.. I always carry at least 3 with me to every wedding.

Describe how you got into photography.

Can't rememember the exact date but when I was about 13 or 14 my father handed me down his old Canon film camera. He must of spend a fortune getting all my rolls of film developed. The bug well and truly took hold when I bought myself my first digital camera back in about 2005.
