I’m an Award Winning Creative Wedding Photographer based in the North East of England.
My aim is to capture memories which tell the story of your special day.
Every couple is different and every wedding is unique. It can be a challenge to find a wedding photographer that is the right fit with you both. You need to find a style and approach that appeals to you and compliments your wedding day.
My bold, creative style is ideal for couples who want something a little different. I aim to tell the story of your wedding day capturing all the moments as they happen as well as some amazing portraits of you together. Whether you love to be in front of the camera or are a little more reserved I really believe the right wedding photographer can make your day even more special.
The last thing you need on your wedding is extra stress! My down to earth style will help you and your guests to feel more relaxed. I’ll work to compliment your wedding day plans and won’t keep you from your guests for hours. Most of the time you won’t know I’m there! Above all, my approach will ensure you can relax and enjoy your special day.
Choosing a photographer for your wedding can be a challenge. It’s important you ‘click’ with their work and approach. Here are the steps I would suggest to help you decide if I am the right photographer for you.
I’ve put together a page of my favourite and most distinctive images from weddings over the past few years.

STILL NOT SURE?
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.
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.
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.
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.
