Photography has been my passion for over 35+ years. I have loved photographing weddings as well as landscapes, nature, families, pets, horses, art, products, models, fashion and much more.
Today the style of 'Wedding Photojournalism' is by far my most exciting and rewarding theme! Every wedding no matter how big or small is truly unique, and full of opportunities to capture moments that document and tell the real story of the wedding day.
As a father of four amazing children I understand how precious family is, and how images seized today will be treasured, becoming irreplaceable in years to come.
My approach at weddings allows newlyweds, their families and guests to fully enjoy the wedding because I will not overly direct and pose everyone. The day goes so quickly, and I believe Brides and Grooms deserve to have as much time possible with family and friends ... it is during these times that the moments are most sincerest.

It can be a long day for Bridesmaids. I stumbled across these two on my way to the bride who was changing into her traditional dress for the reception about to begin. The symmetry of the scene was immediately apparent to me, just perfect. They were both truly asleep and I took this photo quickly fearing they would awake at any minute, which they did not.
As the boys were getting ready they slipped outside for a drink and cigarette. Not to be stopped by a bit of rain, the Best Man found a way to shield the Groom. I had enough time to get down low so as to capture their faces and the smoke filling up the underneath of the umbrella.
This image was taken in a hurry. A shady city lane way with the bridal party just out of the chapel and on the move. Then a gush of wind came out of nowhere as I stood steadfast in the middle of the road to capture the scene I saw unfolding. All the while a large rubbish truck was bearing down on me honking loudly on his horn. I did not move, I was determined not to let this moment slip away!
Love the movement of the veil. Nice light, too. There's so much potential in this category, I wish more people entered it.

Hi Alan, Just wanted to let you know how happy James and I are with your work. Looking at them makes me feel like it was just yesterday and you really captured how the whole day felt. I can't take the smile off my face whenever I look at them. I don't know how I'm going to choose which ones to frame although I do have a few favorites. Your photos are a credit to you, feel free to use them on your website or social media. Thanks again. Rebecca & James

Hi Alan, Just to let you know that we have received our USB of wedding photographs ! We couldn't be more thrilled! Thank you. You have captured everyone and everything we could possibly imagine, even those little details our own eyes wouldn't catch, and we're so grateful. Can't believe that the little details and special moments would have ebbed away in time if you didn't take my call that day, and helped to place our special day so beautifully in our memories! Great to hear you enjoyed the event. It was such a pleasure to have you as our guest! Hope to keep in touch about the album. Looks like it's gonna be a hard one, but equally a treat for us to put together some favourites from the collection. Kind Regards, Tamara
