Reason why I love photography: I love capturing those moments that might have otherwise been missed by most people. I love seeing tears and hearing laughter at a wedding, then producing a set of images that lets the couple relive those moments forever. I almost always cry when I see a bride – for most people that moment walking down the isle only comes once and it is a special one. I love photographing babies and their first giggles, first teeth and those first wobbly steps. A great photograph does speak louder than any set of words and I hope in the years to come I can create some breathtaking images.

It is an honour to be chosen to photograph all the important moments of your wedding day. We are there to capture the details of your getting ready, the moments with your friends and family, the ceremony, artistic/ styled portraits and last but not least, the party!  Our style of photography is a mix of fly-on-the-wall documenting of all the little moments as they happen while also helping to set up key photos such as family group shots and stylised couples portraits. We always look for opportunities to use the best backdrops and natural light available and pull out all the stops with our professional lighting equipment to create stunning hero images when it best suits the scene.  It’s up to you how much of each style we take for your day. We want to get to know you before we arrive on your wedding day so we encourage a pre wedding consultation either at our studio or a video call to go over the logistics of your wedding day, create a time-line for key moments and transport but importantly to get to know how you are as a couple. You may consider having a pre-wedding or engagement shoot where you can get comfortable being in front of the camera, become used to posing; then use your images as art at your reception and for invitations.
