"I simply don’t know what to say. You have captured the day in a way we never could have hoped for or imagined. All the images are SO incredible, you’ve revealed parts of the day we didn’t even know existed. I cannot thank you enough for these photos – I thank the day that we found your website. Your talent stretches far beyond the realms of what we hoped for, really, you have given us the most beautiful, incredible memories.
I am literally speechless.
Thank you SO SO much for all your hard work, on the day, afterwards and getting these to us. A million, million hugs and thank yous.”
I started out as a London wedding photographer 12 years ago and every year I get to go to a church or a venue that I've never seen before. In that time I've met so many great people and been to some amazing venues that I would never have known about! I'm lucky to live in Greenwich with iconic buidings on my doorstep like the Royal Naval College, The Queen's House which make stunning wedding venues as well as the Trafalgar Tavern and more recently the Greenwich Yacht Club.
One of the most exciting aspects of being a wedding photographer in London is the constantly changing lanscape of venues for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Since the relaxing of the laws, there are now a plethora of places which appeal to all tastes, from fashionable East End wharehouses to sophisticated Chelsea hotels. There's defintiely something for eveyrone.
If you're getting in married in London, let's talk! Drop me a line and tell me more about your day. Fill in the form below with as much information as possible about your day and to check availability. I'll send over an electronic brochure which contains my latest pricing and a bit about me and how I work.
I shoot weddings in an unobtrusive, documentary style so most of the time you won't event know I'm there. The most important part of my job is capturing genuine moments on a wedding day which will become lasting memories of a family occasion. I strive to portray the bride and groom, family and friends in an empathetic and honest way, so that the photos become a cherished document of a special family gathering. I do this in an unposed, natural way just shooting events as they unfold in front of me.
I really recommend doing a few family pictures as these are also important to family members and are often the pictures that relatives choose to purchase from my galleries. But best to keep them down to 5 or 6 different combinations as they can be time consuming and I definitley don't want to keep you away from your friends and family during the day.
What about couple pictures? Bride and groom portrait sessions can take as little as 15 minutes. I always talk to my couples about what they want to get out of this part of the photography so we can spend as little or as long as you like.
There are lots of different styles of wedding photography out there and finding a photographer whose style you like is a crucial part of the wedding planning process. So if you asked me to describe my style it would go something like this. In a former life I was a graphic designer and my photography has been influenced by my love of simpicity, white space and symmetry. Coupled with a bit of unhealthy obsession for seeking out interesting light, I'm at my happiest when I can combine both of these elements. However, by far the most important aspect of my wedding photography is capturing moments naturally and empathetically. Fleeting moments between couples, family and friends which, as a whole, tell the story of a wedding day and in turn become an important memento of family history. Put all of those things into a pot, mix with plenty of enthusiasm and friendliness, and hopefully that describes my style and approach to wedding photography.
Below are a selection of weddings that I've shot in London at some of my favourite venues, but take a look around my website and you'll see that my approach to wedding photography is the same wherever I am.
I also travel regularly for weddings, so drop me a line if you're getting married in some far flung place!
