With a degree and background in fine art I bring an eye for dramatic natural lighting and composition to my wedding photography. More than 6 years of professional wedding photography experience and a creative eye has provided my many happy couples with memories and photographic works of art that they can treasure for a lifetime.
I only ever shoot a maximum of 30 weddings per year, ensuring I approach every wedding with a fresh creative energy and dedication.
In addition to my wedding and portrait photography I 'm working on a series of personal fine art projects for exhibition and publication.
I live with my partner and our five children in a lovely eighteenth century cottage.

A great slice-of-life picture. It is one of those images that preserves a typical scene of guys getting ready, but well done – people can relate to this picture. And good use of light!
Love the reaction on both the bride and groom. Beautiful and joyous expressions that they will treasure forever that even the priest participated in. Nicely framed by the flowers with enough depth of field so that the faces stand out.
I'm not sure whether this is a sad or simply contemplative scene, but the photo lets us unobtrusively share it. Perhaps the day isn't going as she'd planned and hoped; perhaps she needed to simply get away from the hubbub for a time; maybe it's as simple as her feet hurt after a long day in heels. Whatever the reason for her far-away stare, the photo respectfully preserves a moment that assuredly broadens the day's coverage beyond nervous preparations and raucous celebration.,
Just a classic wedding moment. This is a sensitive picture and a gift for the wedding party.
