Observational wedding photography

A long time ago I realised that Brides and Grooms didn’t want the same old shots that you saw from nearly all wedding photographers; instead they were choosing the emotional shots, the observational shots to go in their wedding albums. As a natural photo journalist, I slid very quickly into documentary wedding photography, it plays to my strengths. I seek emotion, feelings, shape, great light, contrast; anticipating and seeing things before they happen

Documentary wedding photography is in my bones – that moment I capture the glimpse the smile the tear gets me every time. I observe the little things that no one else sees at a wedding, the way the Mother of the Bride looks at her daughter, the way the Bride looks at her Grandmother, the camaraderie between the Groomsman followed the nervousness of the waiting Groom

As an observational wedding photographer I have had the privilege of being involved with the very special moments in the lives of families all over the world

Black and white wedding photography

From the very first moment I saw image appear out of a sheet of paper under a red light in a darkroom, I have adored B&W photography.  Monochromatic photography looses the dimension of colour, but gains the dimension of substance. Patterns, form and emotion leap out of a monochrome print

I still shoot some black and white film at a wedding, and the results are stunning. A real silver print is something to cherish and look at every day

With an innate ability to think in black and white, seeing texture, shade, light and shape, I add timing and emotion. I always capture an extraordinary, stunning full set of black and white wedding photography at each wedding I shoot

Fine art wedding photographer

I shoot pure Documentary Wedding Photography, however I add to that an artistic vision, and rigorous processes that ensure that you will have exceptionally high quality artistic photography that is timeless and long lasting

Seeing a really high quality print, beautifully framed and in pride of place in a Bride and Grooms family home fills me with joy, that is the point of what I do

From acid free materials, to specialist museum grade printing techniques, everything I do is purposefully designed to make your wedding photography better

The smallest details are of total interest to me. For example, I have a long detailed workflow that starts at the wedding to ensure colour is perfect from shoot to print. I deliberately take time out to stop and consider these things, constantly seeking ways of making things better

Instead of rushing the editing of your wedding photography, I have lots of tiny little extra steps to make the final result better and better. To ensure that you only get the very best

I only use archival quality materials and processes. I am actively thinking think about my medium, film, camera, lens and lighting choices, to bring subjects to life. I want your wedding photography to a part of your families lives for a lifetime and beyond
