I love weddings! And the more I photograph, the more I love them.
I always feel very honoured when someone chooses me to play such an important role in their special day and it doesn't matter how many weddings I shoot, I still find myself shedding a tear at some point during the day.
There are just so many special moments; when a father sees his little girl in her wedding dress for the first time, when a groom turns round to take a sneak peek at his bride as she walks up the aisle, when a mum wipes away a tear as her daughter kisses her new husband for the first time. These are the moments that I love to capture, the moments when the love between people is almost tangible, the moments that still make my heart skip a beat.
I like to photograph weddings in an unobtrusive way as I feel this allows me to truly capture the real emotions of the day. I also like to capture all the little details so that your album really tells the story of your day from start to finish.
I like to keep my images clean, simple and classical by steering away from current fads and trends. Editing styles which are popular now will most likely be out of fashion next year and will make your images look dated. I want you to be able to look at your album in 10, 20, 30 years time and feel as if the photos were taken yesterday.

Top tips for choosing a wedding photographer
Choose a photographer that you like - you are going to be spending a lot of time with them so it's essential that you feel comfortable with them.
Ask to see two complete wedding albums - you need to make sure your photographer produces consistently good shots from start to finish.
Make sure they have a backup equipment - equipment can and does go wrong so make sure they have spares just in case.
Check that they have insurance - your photographer should carry both public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
