Full Description
My style has often been described in terms such as Reportage or Documentary. always take a relaxed approach for a natural feel, and prefer to work with my clients rather than simply telling them what to do, documenting the day as it unfolds, but that's not the whole story. Equally important are the beautiful portraits of the bride & groom - the ones which make you go "wow" - which require a real artist’s eye and a through understanding of the light and other technicalities. I’m in a privileged position being invited to be at your wedding - more so than any other supplier, it's the photographer who'll be near you all day. So, choosing the right one is really important, and is more than just a question of the photos themselves. I know plenty who are technically brilliant but a bit miserable around the guests - in my book, that just won't do. Naturally I have the right insurance, backup equipment, and all the other boring stuff too. If you think I might just be the right photographer for you, I'd love to hear from you. --Tim

Probably the one I photographed in Sydney. We did a post-wedding-shoot on the beach a couple of days later, which was ace.

Building it up from nothing 8 years ago

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

Make sure you include a chance to relax and enjoy yourselves

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

Personalised tractors on every table, coupled with the groom arriving on a tractor (despite being 25, he was obsessed with tractors. I applaud this :) )

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I always meet up with my couples before a wedding, usually more than once. Only by careful planning can I make sure I'm in the right place at the right time, and don't miss what shouldn't be missed.

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

Something they'd be proud to have on their own wall. Something that makes them smile whenever they see it :)

Stopping the Rolls Royce for a photo with the groom's cat.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Erm.... umbrellas.

Describe how you got into photography.

I started when I was 14, learned everything from my dad, who's a professional artist/sculptor and always photographed his own work.
