Why choose me as your Wedding Photographer

It's all about you

Every couple is different and every wedding is unique. I will spend time with you to understand what you want from your wedding photography. I'll discuss the options with you and agree on a schedule for the day which focuses on the most important aspects of your wedding plans.

My creative approach means I use bold compositions and colours to create distinctive images. I capture all the emotions, fun, tears and laughter that makes your wedding day unique. You will have wedding photography that sums up you as a couple.

Storytelling style

I specialise in full day coverage of the wedding day. This means capturing all the special moments from the preparations at the start of the day right through to the first dance. I put together a beautiful gallery of edited images which tell a story for you to look back on.

Relaxed & friendly approach

My down to earth approach means I won't interfere turn your wedding into a photoshoot or keep you away from guests for hours at a time. My discrete style means often you won't know I am there as I capture the key moments of the day.

Professional & reliable

I am full-time professional photographer which means I take a professional approach. This includes being fully insured and carrying back up equipment on all assignments. I am a member of the Master Photographers Association and Societies of Photographers.

Experienced photographer

As a full-time photographer, I cover anywhere between 40-50 weddings every year. My experience of weddings enables me to anticipate the moments, set up the group shots and work alongside your plans for the day.
