Full Description
My photography style is all about capturing life as it happens. I will NEVER tell you to "move into better light ", "to stretch your chin" or "to smile" etc. Its Your day - Your way! I am just wondering around and taking photos ... Most of the time you will not notice I am there at all.

Really captured the happiness and joy of the day.
Peter photographed our, very last minute, wedding on the 18th December after changing the date 24 hours earlier due to Covid. I think overall we went though about 5 different wedding dates but Peter was so helpful, supportive and flexible to every arrangement .... and we are beyond happy with our photos! Peter really captured the happiness and joy of the day. They couldn't have come out any better - thank you!

Thank you Peter for being so wonderful.
Peter photographed our wedding in August this year. It was so important for my husband and I to have a photographer that relived the day for us again in the form of pictures. Peter did not fail to do this and we are so happy with our photos. With Peter specialising in natural unposed photos it meant he captured some of the most beautiful photos on both laughter and tears and the most amazing part is on each picture I remember exactly what it was everybody was laughing at, and the reason behind the tears. I had a special request for Peter and that was for him to capture my father who suffered a major stroke 2 years ago as for me my father walking me down the isle was a moment I thought I'd lost the chance to do but thankfully he managed the moment which I will cherish forever. Peter got the most beautiful pictures of him laughing which I will be forever grateful for, along with the rest of my family. Thank you Peter for being so wonderful.

The photos are absolutely fantastic
We want to thank you for the beautifully presented usb of our wedding photos. The photos are absolutely fantastic and we’re so pleased we chose you to photograph our special day. You managed to capture some really beautiful moments in such a discreet and non intrusive way. It was important for us not to have ‘staged’ photos which we would find uncomfortable. Our families love them too and have been saying ‘How did he take that I didn’t see him!’ on many photos. So thank you for all your time, effort and true talent.

Peter blended in, but didn't miss a shot!
Peter photographed our Easter 2019 wedding and we could not have been any happier to have him capture our special day. Peter helped us plan some of the shots and gave us lots of great ideas. He was more than happy to meet up with us before the big day. On the actual day Peter blended in, but didn't miss a shot! Especially as the bride and not being able to see the run up of guests arriving, seeing these photos after made me feel like I didn't miss a thing. The photos are perfect. Absolutely perfect. Peter captured every incredible moment, and actually most of the time we didn't even realise he was there! He took great shots of the venue to show off our hard work, took advantage of the natural light and the staged photos are idyllic. We felt so at ease, many of our guests even commented on how brilliant he was. The photos have all come out better than expected and were presented to us in a touching box. Peter even made us a slide show with our first dance music in the background which we've shared with all our friends and family. We couldn't have met a nicer photographer and highly recommend him.

Half of the photos I didn’t even realise you were there
Wow wow wow!! Thank you so much! I received this email whilst I was at work and only got home half an hour ago so it’s been killing me having to wait to view them with Tom. Honestly, we love them so much! I feel like you captured our day perfectly. Half of the photos I didn’t even realise you were there so it’s a really nice surprise to see some of them!

We can’t believe some of the amazing moments he managed to capture
Peter photographed our wedding on the 1st October 2018 and he made us feel so relaxed and comfortable, it was like he was one of our guests. We can’t believe some of the amazing moments he managed to capture, we are over the moon! Peter always went the extra mile and even came to find us when there was a beautiful sunset to ask if we’d like some extra pictures. We really can’t thank him enough!

What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable wedding was in August 2020 in Venice. The whole wedding party consisted of just couple and their 2 little daughters. It was super relaxed and chilled day. No stress, they just wanted to be themselves and have photos that capture who they are and how their day was. First time that I was witness too, as they were no guests! After ceremony we had relaxed picnic on a private island, where we stayed until late afternoon. Due to pandemic - there were no other guests so we had all island to ourselves! It was truly memorable day with lovely couple and their adorable daughters...

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

Take it one step at a time with your planning & book suppliers that you can trust.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

After enquiry we usually book a phone or video call, where we can discuss your wedding plans in more detail etc. I can also explain in more in depth how I work and what to expect from me on wedding day, answer all your questions etc. Next step is to sign online contract and trasfer deposit - to fully confirm your booking. After that I get in touch few weeks before wedding to finalise all details, timings. After wedding day, I deliever all photos within 3 weeks time - fully retouched - as online gallery & USB.

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

This may sound boring but I think a photo with parents. Even though I try to get natural photos of parents as well, to have one standard photo with them is important.

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

I can't think of any, I am rarely asked to take photos at wedding as my couples prefer natural storytelling photos from their big day. I do get asked to take family photos but that is normal and I am happy to take them.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Just have fun and don't worry about weather! After so much planning and preparation I think the most important thing is to enjoy your big day:) Every weather is unique and bring something different - even rainy day! Think dramatic stormy clouds, light reflecting of wet surfaces (especially cool for photos after dark with some lights reflecting from venue etc.), rain can be also atmospheric. For me the most important is to embrace the weather and work with it, not against it. For my personal projects I often go outside when it's raining, there is beauty to be found in every weather!

Describe how you got into photography.

I bought my first camera 15 years ago because I went for a holiday, took few snaps while away and put it back in the draw for few months. At that time, taking photos was about preserving memories, point and click, without any clue about light, composition etc. I did not fell in love with photography on my first holiday, it was travelling what became my passion and I started taking more and more trips abroad, with highlight being 9 months long travels in Asia. Thanks to travelling photography became my favourite hobby. I started taking it further by studying more about all aspect of photography, experimenting with portraits, studio lightning etc. I spent hours learning how to pose and use flash just to come to conclusion that I don’t like it and sold most of my studio gear. It was not until I started experimenting with street photography I found passion for observing and photographing people naturally, without getting noticed. That was the reason why I started photographing weddings. They are all about people, often hectic and always packed with emotion. I dont see myself as wedding photographer, I like capturing life. Weddings, street and travel photography or local events - my approach is always the same.
