I photograph people in love sharing their lives with the people they love. Sounds simple, and I suppose it is. Emotion, context and meaning. No hard sell, no surprises (as Radiohead once sang). Nothing is added, nothing is hidden. No cringe, no cheese, no jumping. Ever. Just you and those that matter.
I’m a full-time wedding photographer. This is all I do.
I’m not into staging shots. I’m mainly documentary with a few groups chucked in for Mum and Dad. I shoot all over the place, but mainly Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, London, those sorts of areas. I’ll travel though, so just ask. I’ve been voted one of the ‘Top 50 UK Wedding Photographers’. I’m still not sure what that means, or who decides. I don’t care too much. The only people who matter on that front are the ones who book me.
Why am I a wedding photographer? I’m not going to tell you I was given a camera by my Grandad at the age of 7 and that it sparked a lifelong need to be a photographer. That didn’t happen. I sort of fell into it. Did some for friends, turned out to be quite good. Did some more, got better and decided to go for it. I like people. Being with them when they marry is a bit special. Being trusted to nail their day is the ultimate gig really. We have a lot of fun together and that’s important. The day that bit stops is the day I give up. I’m good at it and, more importantly, I really enjoy it.
I photograph across Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, the Cotswolds, London and beyond. I’m based in North Hampshire and have photographed over 500 weddings.
