The benefits to you of choosing me


I’m relaxed, as are all of my couples. They want to let their day unfold before them and have a photographer they can trust document their day without being bossed about by a photographer and his big ego.

You’ll be able to fully immerse yourselves and enjoy your day with friends and family without the stress of having to be in front of the camera or taken away for an hour for a model shoot.


My style and approach is to work quickly and quietly in the background. I will mingle closely with guests and use them as cover to blend in while I’m watching scenes develop and stories unfold.

You’ll get a true and honest narration of your wedding. There’ll be no contrived moments, just real ones featuring real people and real emotions. Photographs that tell the real story of your wedding day.


I let the day flow naturally. I won’t contrive moments or ask anyone to say cheese. I’m a people watcher, and I love authenticity. If an image is posed or faked, you’ll remember that it wasn’t a real moment.

No standing around for hours posing and feeling uncomfortable. I don’t do model shoots. The only parts of the day where there is a tiny bit of direction are the group shots and the bride & groom portraits.


A safe pair of hands. I’ve been shooting unposed weddings for 18 years and have delivered beautiful images from over 450 weddings. I’m a proven award-winning photographer and work all over the UK.

You can rest in the knowledge that you’ve hired a tried and trusted professional and not someone inexperienced who may flap under pressure and not deliver. Your day happens once. Is it worth the risk?
