A lifelong passion for people and photography has brought me here and I can honestly say being a wedding photographer is the best job in the world. Being present on your special day is an absolute joy and capturing your memories in a wedding portfolio you can treasure is nothing short of an honour.
As an easy-going wedding photographer with a photojournalistic style, my job is to capture the genuine, unscripted moments of your day. Of course, I’ll take the traditional group shots and capture the iconic scenes but it’s those beautiful details, impromptu gestures and unrestrained laughter that really make your day unique. These are the reason I’ll never get bored of photographing weddings and why I love working with people.
I have a natural ability to capture those moments that others miss. I’ll offer gentle guidance and organisation where required, but for the most part, you won’t even notice I’m there. This is your day, not mine and the last thing you want is a stranger prompting you to go here, stand there or look like this. I want to capture the emotion, personality and excitement of your day as it naturally unfolds. If you’re relaxed and enjoying yourself, the photos will speak for themselves.
So that’s a bit about my work but choosing a wedding photographer is also a lot about the person. You’ll be looking for someone you get on with and someone you trust. So, here’s a little more about me:
I live on the Isle of Wight with my wife Dawn. With two grown up children having flown the nest, you’ll often find me enjoying the delights of a new restaurant or exploring the local wildlife, always accompanied by my camera or course. Oh and I like… (something random?)
Where am I based?
I am based in southern England but, as a photographer I am completely mobile and have conducted photo shoots across England, Wales and northern Europe. Actually, I love to travel so I’m happy to attend wedding shoots at any location. Please just get in touch to ask for a quote.
How did I get into wedding photography?
I have been behind a camera ever since I can remember, regularly taking photos of friends and family and feeding my appetite to record the world around me. I began turning a hobby into a profession over the last five years following a Fine Arts degree and a four-year apprenticeship working on the commercial market and producing photographs to an exacting specification.
The last three years have seen me working on private commissions, wedding and event photography. I’m a regular on social media and have received several million views and comments on my candid street photography.
Why did I become a wedding photographer?
I have a passion for recording life events, capturing the personality and atmosphere of a day in a way that will continue to tell a story in years to come.
I love working with people of all ages ethnicities and situations, getting to know their personalities and presenting this through my work. Weddings provide the perfect setting for my relaxed documentary style and, of course, receiving feedback from a satisfied customer is incredibly rewarding.
