Full Description
I have an Unobtrusive Fun Documentary style in Wedding Photography. Choosing the right wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task. With so many photographers to choose from! Lots of couples tell me that they don't like their photographs being taken. Which is where my style of capturing the Wedding day in an Unobtrusive Documentary Style really works. Coming from a Press background Documentary Photography is second nature for me.

What is your most memorable wedding?

GOSH! All the weddings that I have had the pleasure of photographing over the years all hold a place in my heart for one reason or another. All weddings are so different I couldn't possibly choose.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Unobtrusive, Understanding, Patient, Fun,

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

Make a little time for yourselves

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The first contact is normally made via email, a phone call or social media. After checking if I am available on the couples wedding day I like to make arrangements to meet so the couple so that they can see my work as framed prints and modern photobooks. This can be at the couples home or in a coffee shop or in my office.

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

This photograph was my idea. The Groom being towed along behind the Bride on her galloping horse ( I am a very good photo-editor)

Describe how you got into photography.

I started my photographic career by photographing my children and their ponies. Which I did for many years. I soon found my real passion was photographing Wedding. I love nothing more than freezing moments in time. Back in 1995 was given the opportunity to photograph for TA1 Motorsport. I was employed as the travelling photographer which involved travelling to all of the Race tracks in the U.K. My photographs were used in Race Car Magazines. Which was a fabulous job are my weekends were free so I could follow my passion for Wedding Photography. In 2007 I started to work as Senior Photographer on a Regional Newspaper during which time I have photographed all members of the Royal Family and photographed lots of things most photographers don't get the opportunity to photograph. My photographic journey has taught me to stay calm when others maybe panicing.
