My approach

I’m not a normal wedding photographer and I like that, I pride myself on being different. I don’t do posing, or big daft cameras, or bossing you around or anything you would normally associate with a wedding photographer. I give traditional wedding photography the finger with all its’ formality, stiffness and cliches - my couples want something real and honest - real stories filled with emotion and personality, pictures they can get excited about, pictures they can relate to and love.

I hate, I mean hate the whole ‘wedding photographer’ thing, the bloody awkwardness of it all, how they get in front of guests during important moments, how intrusive they are, how on edge you feel as a guest (been to plenty of weddings as a guest you see) - so I’m not really a wedding photographer I guess, I’m a photographer who happens to shoot weddings but in a completely different way to a standard wedding photographer. I wanted to create something completely unique, the approach I’ve devised and worked on for years is very much that of a guest, totally relaxed, I’m part of your wedding rather than someone who’s there to get pictures at any cost.

I’m there to enjoy your wedding as much as your other guests are and I’ve found people absolutely love the approach I use, I’m not winding your guests up by getting in their way, or making them feel uncomfortable with wedding photographer like behaviour, I’m not constantly hovering around you two snapping away either, you get to enjoy your wedding without feeling like you’re constantly under my scrutiny and camera clicks . It also means a few other benefits as far as your pictures go:

People are fully relaxed around me, it’s like I’m not there as a photographer. The photographs I take are natural, organic, genuine moments of people being themselves rather than being aware there’s a big camera pointed at them waiting for them to ‘do something’. Your gallery is a very personal and intimate record of your day, a real story - rather than simply ‘pictures of people who were at your wedding’. There’ll be beautiful moments a normal wedding photographer simply wouldn’t have access to, there’ll be character and personality in your pictures and there’ll be some crazy shit too because people feel so comfortable around me and see me as one of their own, they really let their guard down and just behave naturally, everything that happens will be there in pictures from a very unique and personal perspective.

My photographic style

My style is best described as a front row guest perspective story of your wedding in pictures. It’s been described as energetic, full of life, emotive and ballsy - the kind of pictures that make your ears prick up, make you feel something. For me weddings are about people, atmosphere and personality, you can’t engineer a moment and you can’t direct a feeling in a photograph, those things just have to happen spontaneously - my job is to record them in pictures.

My aim is to create a story for couples they can look back on in years to come and really feel all of the emotions they felt on their wedding day, pictures that show who they are as people and what their day was really like. Deeply moving in places, full of happiness, celebration and energy.

I want you to be proud of your pictures, as proud as I am so your pictures get my undivided attention to make them look their very best.

but…we absolutely hate having our picture taken!!!!!

Don’t worry everyone does, it’s uncomfortable and awkward if done the wrong way! Every single couple say the same thing to me when they get in touch, fear not! My approach is completely different to a normal wedding photographer - after your wedding you’ll have got rid of your camera fear completely, it’s all down to approach you see. I love the fact that every couple after their wedding state I was more like a member of the family than the photographer, you being comfortable (or not even registering I’m there to take pictures) is massively important to me, stiff people make for terrible pictures, relaxed people make for great pictures. Don’t worry, I’m not like ‘the photographer’ !
