Photographs frame your memories and tell the story of the day for years to come, so it was vital to us to get it right. I had reason to be so picky, I’ve been a professional cameraman for over 20 years, I’ve worked in most aspects of broadcast television and was formerly Head of Broadcast for a Sky Digital Channel.
I’m what you’d call a perfectionist when it comes to images, still or moving. I felt so passionate about getting my own wedding photography right that I’ve been working in the wedding industry ever since! My professional background has stood me in great stead. As a professional documentary film-maker I unobtrusively observed, recorded and presented images in a creative way, I do the same at weddings, so don’t worry – you won’t have to spend all day smiling at the camera for me to get some fabulous shots of you. I am passionate about capturing those rare wonderful moments of love and laughter that happen so magically at weddings, and you probably won’t even notice me doing it. Likewise, if you’re confident with your portraiture and fancy throwing some poses, then excellent, let’s get artistic!
I’m based in the New Forest but frequently work beyond the Hampshire and love a destination wedding. London, Surrey, Wales, Cornwall, Scotland, Spain and Crete are all among recent bookings. I have a wealth of experience in a wide variety of settings, whether it be a stately home, village church, beach, registry office, grand cathedral, castle, boat…even a tipi! Each location is as individual and exciting as the couple themselves, and each special day is a joy to work on. The best part is, I love weddings: the emotions, the rituals, the personalities and the fun. Every couple is different with their own special magic and I’m honoured to be the one to preserve their unique individuality for everyone to enjoy for years to come.
For me it’s all about relationships. Building a relationship with the couple and their guests, enjoying the day along with them, so that the photos I capture of your relationships are happy, relaxed and reflect the heart of the day itself and all involved. I’m the photographer who loves his job, is friendly, puts everyone at ease, loves speeches – (there’s been more than one occasion where I’ve had to surreptitiously wipe away a tear during a speech…ahem..), and joins in the fun and celebrations with your friends. Not only that, but I’ll capture you, your guests, and the romance of the day itself in a visually breath-taking, creative, exciting and beautiful way.
I’m a full time, professional and fully insured photographer, and I only use the world’s best equipment. I always carry at least 2 cameras at any given moment, and there’s always a spare one ready too – all of them top professional, full-frame kit. In addition to this, the cameras backup the photos as I shoot to a separate card, making it impossible to ever lose a shot.
You’re not just investing in beautiful and long-lasting photography, you’re investing in total professionalism and peace of mind, so that you can relax and enjoy your wedding day to the full.
