Capturing the magic of your big day

When I think back on all the weddings I’ve done over the years, I feel a sense of privilege, pleasure and gratitude. I’ve spent many a day with couples on one of the most important days in their lives, and hugely enjoyed engaging with them, their families and their friends. And I’m one of those lucky people who love their work.

Photography has always been a passion for me. I love capturing people’s personalities through the lens, take great pride in the results, and am deeply gratified by the satisfaction of my clients.

Being a wedding photographer means you have to combine good organisation and efficiency with a friendly, natural and relaxed manner. But the wedding belongs to the bride and groom.

No cheese!

Since I’m trying to capture the emotion and feelings that make the day special, I have to let the day flow in a natural way, and not keep interrupting to ask people to pose or ask them to say ‘cheese’!

Every wedding is different but my goal is the same: to evoke – through creativity or artfulness – the distinctive story and character of each wedding, to show happy souls and beautiful or touching moments, and to provide each couple with a record of their wedding that will delight them.

It’s a pleasure and a privilege for me to record so many wonderful weddings and to share the story of them with you in my blog below or visit my wedding planning BRIDE GUIDE page and About me
