About Me

I love photographing people! I try to create simple, honest but extraordinary photographs that you will treasure for the rest of your lives. I try to document your wedding day in a relaxed and informal style. I do not try to construct images but let the day happen. After all, I’ll get much better images if you are enjoying yourselves, having fun!

 

That’s me in the photo there. In winter I’m usually wearing a woolly hat to make up for my hairstyle (or lack of it). Sometimes I grow a beard to make up for it. When I’m at home, I slob around in jeans and a sweatshirt, mainly because you never know when the kids are going to call on you to build a sofa fort or hunt dragons. When I’m out and about, I might be wearing something a little more sophisticated. But whatever the season or occasion, I’ll always have a smile on my face – without sounding smug, I love my life, my family and what I do for a living.

 

I’ve been a photographer for a while now. To be honest, I’ve always been a photographer. I did a degree in Editorial and Documentary photography but I’ve always had a camera. I love recording what’s going on around me. In my time, I’ve worked as a fashion, portrait, studio and editorial photographer. Nearly ten years ago, I moved out of London to specialise in wedding photography which neatly brings in all those elements.

 

I live in Suffolk, in a small village in beautiful Constable country, with my wife and three kids.

My Approach

 

The more fun you are having, the better photographs I’ll get. Simple! I tend to have very little influence on your wedding day other than any formal shots you may want and some time with the two of you.

 

And that’s as simple as it gets.

 

I will be there to capture the moments and emotions from the day, from the big hero shots to the quiet and delicate moments; from the nerves and anxieties to the fun and chaos and as much as I can in-between. I tend to be “hands-off” and tell the story of the day in an informal and natural way as possible. I happy to marshal and move people around for the formal shots so we can get those done as efficiently as possible giving you more time for champagne with your friends. Which means you end up with a fantastic collection of photos covering all elements of the day without feeling like you’ve been part of a photo-shoot!

 

It’s your wedding day and it should be enjoyed being with your friends and family, eating, drinking and celebrating (and perhaps a few dodgy dance moves later in the evening). Photography is important but it shouldn’t hijack your day.
