From the day I was given a camera for my 12th birthday I've loved photography. I've been fortunate enough to photograph caribbean beaches, the space shuttle and Moto GP. I've photographed my children growing up, their happiness and sadness. I simply love photography as for me it's a way to capture forever a moment in time - I look back at any photograph and I'm instantly transported back in time to that moment. Nothing else does this and that's why I love wedding photography - in years to come I know you'll look back at the images and like me, you'll be transported back to your wedding day, You'll remember the people, the weather, the smells, the dress, ,,, everything will be there for you for always - and I created it. It simply makes me feel great to give it to you...

About my


I'm a down to Earth type of guy and realise that being a Wedding Photographer is a passion but also a business. It's my business to provide you, my client, with what you want and expect. So "my" style takes second place to what you want, if you want reportage style with many black and white images, fine, I'll create that for you. If you want high fashion style, fine, I'll create stunning images that would grace a Bridal magazine. If you say to me "do what you think best" (and most people do!) , then I'll create a composite collection whose aim is to tell the STORY of you Wedding Day from start to finish. There'll be candid, in the moment reportage style shots that will capture many things you wont see yourself on the day, Candid shots of you and your guests throughout the day. And then of course posed groups and many shots of you, the Happy Couple in beautiful locations.

What Gets


Brides Prep.


The Brides preparations are a great way to start telling the story of the day - it's real - it's fun and often chaotic and makes for some great images. It's also a chance to photograph the DETAILS that play such an important part in your day. Be it the flowers, the dress, the shoes or the empty bottles of Champagne!

What Gets


The "Guys"


Let's face it once the Bride shows up the GUYS are toast!

So I'll find time to get to where ever Guys are before the CEREMONY and get shots just of them. It might just be GROOM and BESTMAN or Groomsmen, Dad, Brothers.... whatever, I'll get photos that will be memorable, some relaxed and some posed.


What Gets


The Ceremony


From a simple REGISTRY OFFICE to a CATHEDRAL the Wedding Ceremony follows a set pattern.

From guests taking their seats to the Brides ARRIVAL, the ceremony itself, the first KISS and exchanging RINGS.

This part of the day doesn't allow for any posed or staged shots and everything has to be photographed!

There's NO second chance!

Miss a moment and it's gone forever....


What Gets


It's Confetti Time!!

A Great chance to RELAX and of course a long held tradition that makes for super photos...


What Gets


Group Photographs

This tradition has been with us forever and allows you to remember your day with friends and family.

Usually I'll ask for the "BIG" group shots first, so everyone gets included before anyone has a chance to wonder off! I'll then start to reduce the size of the group with Bride family, Groom family, friends, Grand parents and so on as separate groups - I'm always concerned to get every shot you want so if you have a list of which groups you want then I'll happily work with that.

I usually use fairly traditional poses for the large groups but then try and use the location to get some different settings as the groups get smaller


What Gets


The Happy Couple

Great images of you on your wedding day is of course expected. I believe that your wedding day should be about you enjoying the day, the people, the whole event. Yes you want great photos of you both but you don't want to spend ages away from the party! I do my utmost to ensure that I'll get the great images but without too much disruption to your day. I'll make sure everything is set-up and all you do is spend a few minutes with me then can get back to your guests and enjoy the day. I'll get shots of you in several different locations as the day goes on in as little time as possible. If you have particular images in mind I'll get those of course and I'll use the location, props and light to create superb photos


What Gets


The Evening

The Wedding Breakfast and Reception are times when I'll use "reportage" photography to get candid shots with a long lens and standing back well out of the way. I'll get those moments when someone cracks a joke, when you hug someone you haven't seen for years.... There's the CAKE to cut, there's SPEECHES to listen to, and finally your FIRST DANCE.... A disco often provides dramatic lighting to round the day off with beautiful colours.


What Happens


Having spent all day getting somewhere around 1500 images that can never be repeated it's vital to make sure they're safe. Whatever the time the files are downloaded from my cameras to my PC, then overnight uploaded to a cloud storage. By the next morning everything is totally safe - phew! I'll then process (adjust the crop, colour balance, brightness and a dozen other things) around 200 images which I feel best represent your WEDDING DAY and upload these to a private album on my website. This is time consuming work and there'll be maybe 20 images where I'll spend additional time on to create really outstanding images of several parts of the day. I'll send you a link and password so you and your guests can enjoy the day all over again! I'll work with you to create an album and any additional canvases, prints etc that you or your guests may want
