Storytelling Wedding Photographer
I want to tell the story of your wedding day in an honest and creative way. I don’t interfere with what is happening around me and my camera, I simply let the day unfold in front of me. I’m a wedding photographer who only gives direction during the portraits and group photos.
Up Close and Personal
The best photos make you feel something. They transport you back to the moment, making you feel like you are there again. In order to do this, I will be close to you for much of the day. I don’t like being far away with a zoom lens, because the photos always feel distant.
The Good Light (Making use of it and creating it)
Anyone can call themselves a wedding photographer nowadays, because everyone has a pretty good camera on their phone. You can have the best camera and lenses in the world, but if you don’t understand how to use light and shadow to your advantage, you won’t take great photos. I have been taking photos for over 18 years and I know what makes good light for photos. I’m always looking for it, and if there isn’t any around, I have the tools with which to create beautiful light.
Taking photos of a couple in love is a true pleasure which, as a wedding photographer, I can’t get enough of. I like to spend 20 or 30 minutes with my couples on their wedding day to make some beautiful photos of just the two of them. Don’t like having your photo taken? I see that as a challenge, and I’m experienced at making you feel at ease in front of the camera. It can also help to have a photo session before the wedding so we can get to know each other before the day and you can get some lovely, timeless photos of the two of you together.

The In-between Moments
I love capturing the things that my couples miss on their wedding day. There is so much going on at weddings – hugs, happy tears, belly laughs, kids being….. kids! These are a few of my favourite things. There are times when the unpredictable happens, and I love it when I can capture those moments, along with the reactions of the people involved.
These are the photos your parents and grandparents want now, and you may not be that fussed, but when you become a parent and grandparent, you will be glad you took them. These are the photos that will be of most interest to the future generations of your family. For your grandchildren to look back on and see what you were like when you were young and cool! And for their grandchildren to marvel at and laugh at the clothes people wore at weddings in the early 21st century.
You can do as many as you like, although I always recommend trying to keep them to a certain number so you can spend as much time enjoying your wedding reception as possible.
Dance Floor Madness
Wedding parties are the best. No other party sees such a generational mix on the dance floor. Grandmas getting their groove on, parents making shapes and all your friends having the time of their lives. The energy is infectious! I love getting involved on the dance floor, capturing the dance moves and the people’s faces when their favourite track kicks in. I’m a wedding photographer who stays until the end, not one of those who disappears 20 minutes after the first dance. So many of the best moments happen towards the end of the night, and I’m always there to capture it.
