Finalist in the Category of

Best Wedding Photographer 2019 

Proud to say I came 6th overall and the judge's top 10 had their images printed in the June issue of N-Photo, the UK's most popular photography magazine for Nikon professionals.

"Captured as the bride was getting ready, using natural sunlight to create a soft gentle glow to the bride's face, she appears blissfully unaware of the photographer's presence, and her expression is mindful and calm, suggesting great control of pre-wedding nerves." 


My Style

My preferred approach to photography is very natural and 'hands off'. Whether you want to call it documentary, reportage, photojournalism or storytelling wedding photography. That means that most of the day I shoot candid, natural images as they happen in a discreet, unobtrusive way. I will not pose you or ask you to smile - just capture beautiful images as they happen, naturally.


I do of course take any family group shots you would like and also shoot some relaxed couple portrait shots. I can do these quickly and efficiently without taking you away from your wedding day for too long. When I photograph a wedding, all day coverage means just that, from dawn to midnight if required. It is your day, the story doesn’t finish at the first dance, and I believe your photo story shouldn’t either.

The images I shoot are then carefully edited and crafted to create a beautiful story of the day, in pictures. I capture emotions and memories as I see them and I won’t interfere or orchestrate your wedding day. My job is to blend into the day, being an almost invisible part of it, while still being in the right place to catch those beautiful moments that you will treasure forever.
