Philosophy

 

My style is all about capturing the elegant, beautiful and funny moments of people in love. My approach is candid, photographing the spontaneous fun in front of me rather than bossing people into cheesy smiles. This is wedding photography that doesn't suck.

Choosing a wedding photographer is hard. It's a day you cannot repeat, when the cake has been eaten and the bunting put away all you'll have are your memories and your photos. You want someone whose photos you are going to treasure for the rest of your lives.

If you've been to a wedding you'll agree most wedding photography is dull. Group shot after group shot, selective colour, wacky poses, cutesy filters, forced grinning for the camera... boring, generic and phoney.

Worse than that, who wants to spend hours of their wedding day at a photo-shoot when there are old friends to embrace, there is Champagne to be drunk and dances to be had?

My photography is different. I am a documentary wedding photographer. Some people call it wedding photojournalism, some call it reportage and some people call it candid, but it is all the same thing.

I tell the story of your wedding as you see it through your eyes and I'll never line people up and ask them to smile.

I believe that every wedding has beauty, humour and elegance and everyone deserves photos of these moments.

My style is classic and poetic, inspired by reportage and fashion. Read what others have to say about it.

I won't stalk you from behind a tree with a huge lens and I won't be a wallflower. I'll flirt with your mum with a drink in my hand and tell dirty jokes with your groomsmen. I let people do their thing and click a shutter from time to time.

If you hate having your photo taken but love good photos, if you you've planned a wedding you actually want to enjoy yourself, or if you want an alternative to whatever is trendy right now and you don't want the same wedding photos as everyone else - you may have found your wedding photographer.
