Full Description
The couples that hire me say they want to enjoy their wedding day & celebrations with their guests, which is ideal as I shoot a relaxed & natural style which is best suited to watching real moments. However I'm also able to, quickly, create some artistic & creative elements too. Choose a personalised & fully bespoke service or select one of my comprehensive & inclusive wedding photography packages from chic & modern wedding books or digital images only for the cost conscious bride to luxurious & elegant wedding albums from world leading suppliers - the choice is always, as it should be - yours.

I love my work & am invested in it from enquiry to delivery I'm photographer & I style & design your wedding albums. I want to photograph - your wedding - not re-shoot the same images with different people, which is why for the most part you'll hardly realise I'm there. I'm super speedy & efficient with you photos also - proof albums & images within 4 weeks & once you OK your proofs, your album is regularly with you 4 weeks after that. I want your wedding to be, my best work yet.

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

plan early so you can just enjoy your wedding day & celebrations.

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

Military wedding & groom & groomsmen in full military attire - except the best man who was civilian... so at the speeches the groom presented him with a plastic sword, helmet & sash...

Describe your typical process with a couple.

am I available #1... a meeting to hear their plans & requirements, show my work in print ( still the best presentation option ) - 2 months prior to the day a pre-wedding meeting, confirm details of the day - wedding - honeymoon I'm creating proof album - once they ok any changes - album to printers & 4 weeks later they have their album & digital images.

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

Candid & un-posed natural shot of them together.

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

Bride & groom lived in Robin Hoods Bay & wanted a photo of them the sea & the cliffs.... they chose a spot & we took the shot... it was OK though lacking a little umph, I thought... I saw the street, the backdrop & said I'll catch you up I've just got to change a lens.. I fibbed.. I waited for them to do something & captured on of my most commented upon photos - its in my photos here.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

not to worry, we can create some fabulous images inside too & maybe later we can use the rain & wet ground for something special also.

Describe how you got into photography.

One of my brothers is a qualified photographer & though I was always interested it was with the first good DSLR Digital cameras that really got me inspired.
