Let's take the ‘cheeeeeese’ out of wedding photography, No posing, no cliches, but a relaxed, unscripted record of your day – just call me The Wedding Ninja!! I love a wedding or elopement with personality, one that has ‘You’ stamped all over it Want a floral wedding dress with Doc Martens? Brilliant Getting married in an old cinema? Amazing Duck herding at the drinks reception? That will do nicely! My Dad is a photographer and I was given my first camera when I was 6 years old, but then sort of lost interest for a while. Then, about 15 years ago, whilst travelling in Asia, I bought a digital camera, spent about 3 days in Singapore taking photographs almost non stop and I was hooked, the rest, as they say, is history!!

Some couples, as they begin planning for their weddings, might think that they are limited to the classic locations: churches, gardens, beaches, or even Las Vegas. But in doing so they’re missing out on a multitude of unique options that might suit their personalities much better! Why limit yourself to a quiet, quaint ceremony when your adventurous heart may be calling out for something more?

It’s no secret that these are strange times we’re going through right now, and there are many couples out there with weddings set in the near future who are left feeling uncertain and concerned about their futures.

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions. However, as people cut back on non-essential little luxuries here and there, one constant remains: weddings. People don’t tend to just stop getting married due to a poor economy, nor should they! So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

Thank you so much for agreeing to photograph our wedding. We love the photos and really appreciated your patience and good humour during the day. It was hard deciding which photos we wanted to use for our thank you cards as there are so many great ones we could have used, and it is only going to get harder when we move onto the albums!
