If you want relaxed, natural, beautiful wedding photography then I should be on your list of potential photographers.
I’m a documentary wedding photographer, which means my style is very natural and relaxed. I prefer to document your day as it happens, rather than try to pose everything and everyone. Working that way is loads more fun for everyone, and results in great images. It’s also a great way to ensure that your wedding photographs truly reflect your day, capture your personalities and are genuinely unique to you.
I’ve been a working photographer for five years and my background is in journalism – so I’m very good at being in the right place at the right time. I do a lot of commercial and press photography and I am regularly published in the Journal, Yorkshire Post, Hull Daily Mail, plus a ton of regional dailies and weeklies across the country. I’ve also had my portraits featured on the website of Vogue Italia as well as The Times and The Telegraph.
I’m lucky in that commercial and press photography brings my bacon home. So wedding photography isn’t something I do because I have to; I shoot weddings because I love it.
My goal is to give you beautiful, timeless images that you and your family will enjoy looking at forever. And I understand that wedding photography is more than just recording the day and getting you some pretty pictures.
I got married in 2002. Now, 14 years later, I can’t remember the chair covers, I can’t remember the food, I can’t recall what the bridesmaids wore. Apart from a ring, a piece of paper and suit that doesn’t fit me anymore, all I have from that day are the photographs. Oh, and my wife … and 13 happy years.
My daughter (she’s nine) loves looking through our wedding photographs. Some of the loved ones pictured laughing and joking with my wife and I are, sadly, no longer with us. But whenever we look through our wedding photos, it gives us the opportunity to remember them and tell our daughter all about them. So I know, from first-hand experience, the importance and enduring power of quality wedding photography.
