I’m a Leicestershire wedding photographer who specialises in documentary wedding photography.

I won’t document endless details or contrive or control moments. I record real human interaction; the display of love, life, laughter and all of those other pure and incredibly emotive moments.

My style of documentary wedding photography, reportage or wedding photojournalism is pure, involving no intrusion or interruption to your day and without the need to set up fake moments. I guarantee that I won’t take over your day, order you around or contrive images.

Take a look at my work – you’ll get a feel for the rapport I have with my couples, shooting the wedding as if I was an invited guest.

Award Winning Wedding  Photographer

In 2009, I placed third worldwide in the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association)  Wedding Photojournalist of the Year Competition. In doing so, I was the highest placed UK member gaining the title of the WPJA’s “UK Wedding Photographer of the Year”.

I’ve won the title of “Best Wedding Photographer” for the East Midlands region three times in the 2012, 2014 and 2015 UK Wedding Industry Awards which are based purely on client votes and feedback.

I’m also a member of the ISPWP (International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers) where I have also won awards for my wedding photographs.

East Midlands based, but covering the UK

Based out of Loughborough, Leicestershire in the heart of the East Midlands means that I’m ideally placed to serve the cities of Leicester, Derby and Nottingham and the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Rutland, Northamptonshire, The West Midlands, Lincolnshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire.

I’ll travel further to cover weddings all over the UK and this has taken me to London, Scotland, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Surrey, Wiltshire, Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire, Cheshire, Lancashire, Yorkshire and Berkshire.

“We’ve just looked through these for the fourth time in a row and they are absolutely superb – love them! Every time we look through them we see different details, but I guess that’s the point. Thanks so much for capturing our day so perfectly!”

Ian, thank you so so much, we absolutely LOVE them – there certainly was a lot of laughter and a lot of tears and you’ve captured it beautifully! I have found working today very difficult, as it’s much more fun to look at the pictures! We look forward to decorating our new house with your work!

“We love looking through our photos! It really was the best day of our lives and we’re still ‘buzzing’. It’s great to have photographs that tell the story rather than posed ones. We wouldn’t have had any other style of wedding photography and we’ll always recommend you.”

Dan And Anna

“A huge thank you for photographing our wedding earlier this week. It was a perfect day made better by your natural unobtrusive style, we spent the day with our friends and family rather than posing for photographs, thank you!”
