What I do.
Documentary Wedding Photography. Wedding Photojournalism. Reportage. Candid Wedding Photography
So many names for a simple concept...
Essentially, you do your thing - have an amazing day - and I'll capture it.
I won't ask you to pose in awkward love heart hand positions or do tons and tons of group shots one after another. I get all of the essentials that you want and need from your day in a relaxed and fun manner. I will take you aside to have a moment together after the ceremony that allows you to breathe and just be alone before the noise and fun and the rest of the day. I won't make you do anything you aren't comfortable with. Your wedding is about you and what you want, I just am there to capture it.
Everything is unposed, real and authentic. Giving you the best memories of your day. I deliver the pictures in order of event so it follows a story. I try to capture how the day felt as well as how it looked as I feel every couple deserves more.
I've not been shooting weddings for as long as some other photographers, but I have a great eye, am good at blending in and capturing the love and atmosphere of the day. I try not to use added flashes until the party gets going so to remain as unobtrusive as possible.
Why Pick Me?
There are hundreds of photographers out there, so why pick me? I try to find out as much as possible about my couples and the venues I am shooting before the day so I get the most out of it from the moment I arrive. I am very relaxed and have been told I am mildly funny at times, I want you to feel so comfortable with me so that you forget I am even there and don't feel there's a stranger in the room on the biggest day of your life. If you are nervous or hate being in front of the camera, my style is perfect for you, you just focus on having the best day ever and I will do the rest. I deliver a minimum of 500 photos in colour and black and white.

Do you shoot destination weddings?
I do indeed, in fact I encourage them. Additional fees will be added for flights and accommodation. In 2020 I will be going to Marbella, Ireland and Vegas.
Will there be a second shooter?
There can be a second shooter for an additional cost if one is required. 6 hours is charge at £300 or 8 hours at £400. There expenses would also need to be covered if a destination wedding.
Can I extend the session on the day of?
These can be added if needed, please ask in advance if this might be the case.
What kind of gear do you use?
I use Canon as its what I love to shoot on. I have two cameras and multiple lenses to get the best results.
Do I have to order prints through you?
You can order prints through the website or you can order them yourselves.
Are you insured?
Yes of course, up to £2 million public liability.
What do you wear?
I have a variation of suits so I can run around shooting without flashing you or your guests. I normally am in a white shirt and trousers with flat shoes. I try to blend in but stand out when I need to.
What if you are sick?
Well short of a zombie apocalypse or swarm of bees I will be there, but if the worst happens I will find an amazing alternative for the same cost or give you a full refund.
What can we do with the images?
They are your photos to print and make copies and give to everyone you've ever met if you like. The only restriction is for commercial use.
Will we have to pose?
Not if you don't want to, it's your day! If you want a full Hello Mag style shoot, lets do it, if you want to just have fun with your partner wedding party that's perfect. I work around what you want from your day.
