The style of photos you can expect
To me, weddings are all about joy and celebration. I reflect the optimistic mood with images that are filled with light – natural, as much as possible.
My aim is to create relaxed, elegant and romantic compositions in which, above all, the two of you look happy and in love.
Having a camera pointed at you can feel scary at first, so I take care to put you at ease with gentle encouragement. That way, you’ll get photos you’ll love because you look carefree in them.
You’ll want your wedding to look high-end, with beautiful flowers, details and venue decorations. I’ll give your photos that look, creating images of everyone at their most stylish.
Your love for each other is the driving force of your wedding. On the day, my beautiful portraits of you – candid moments, intimate close-ups and wide-angles – will bring your feelings to life.
My professional approach
Giving you the best experience – that’s my priority, all the way from booking to receiving your album, if you order one. I try to explain everything clearly, respond to queries as quickly as possible and give you sensible options.
On the day, you and your wedding guests will find me discreet, friendly and approachable. My aim is to capture beautiful images of you both in a way that lets you enjoy the experience.
Behind the scenes, I take care to understand your requirements, set out terms of service clearly, keep in regular touch with you, use pro-level gear, be properly insured, back up my photos of your wedding rigorously and take care of all the other aspects that separate the professional from the enthusiast.
What happens on your wedding day
I’ll be there to capture all the key moments of your day, usually from your bridal preparations in the morning until dancing is well underway in the evening. This means you’ll get photos that help you remember all the details of your day – and all the people present – in the years to come.
If it’s important to you to have your partner’s preparations captured as well as your own, I can bring along a second photographer. He or she would cover alternative angles during the ceremony and take lots of candid shots and informal portraits during the rest of the day.
Of course, careful planning is essential to make your day a success, and I’m happy to meet you well before your wedding to help you finalise your timeline and the groups you’d like me to photograph.
Very shortly afterwards, I’ll blog your wedding and send you a link that you can share with all your family and friends to keep the excitement going.
Between two and four weeks later, depending on the time of year, I’ll send you a link to an online gallery that you can share with family and friends.
Approximately 500 high-resolution image files follow a few days later as a digital download. My aim is to deliver consistent, high-quality images that you’ll return to time and time again.
Then, it’s time to start choosing the photos to include in your album, if you’d like one. This is easy to do online.
Leafing leisurely through a printed volume with friends or family is by far the best way to bring back all those memories, as if it was yesterday. You’ll be doing this about four weeks after I’ve designed and placed your order – and for years to come.

A capable team of creatives for larger weddings
A few years ago, a work colleague asked me to photograph her wedding. I really enjoyed the experience, took every opportunity to learn and practise after that, and never looked back.
In my spare time, I enjoy singing and belong to Romsey Abbey Choir. This gives me a particular affinity with church weddings.
My wife Rachel writes for major non-fiction publishers, runs one of the top interior design blogs in the country and an eBay shop. We share our life with Binky, a middle-aged tabby who likes us but not other cats in the neighbourhood.
