Don’t let the Sheffield part put you off though, I love to travel all over the world for weddings.
My guiding principle is Great Photos, No Worries.
I know that planning a wedding can be stressful. I want to take photos off your worry list.
Let me explain…
I hate this part.
I’m too British to be able to stand up and tell the world that I’m great at taking photos.
Thing is, quite a few people have told me that I take great photos, that I capture the heart and soul of the moment.
For the longest time I thought they were just being polite.
After all these years I am starting to accept that there may be some truth behind it.
One pretty consistent bit of feedback I hear is that I am the ideal photographer for people who hate the idea of having a photographer at their wedding.
The way I work is to pretty much leave people alone to get on with their day. I take photos of what is happening in front of me without interfering.
As it turns out, this is a rather popular approach and results in great, natural photos.
My aim is to make sure that, no matter what else may be going with your wedding planning, you can rest assured that photography is sorted.
Before your wedding I will always make myself available for a chat, message or meeting.
During your wedding I very rarely leave your side. I will be a reassuring presence every step of the way.
Afterwards I will keep you up to date with my progress getting your photos ready. I’ll even share with you the occasional teaser photo.
My point is that your trust is the most important thing to me and is not something I take for granted.
This picture is me with my wife Tina and our young children Sienna and Sebastian.
Photography has been my passion for most of my life. My Dad was a photographer so I grew up having my photo taken; as I got older he taught me how to compose a photo and from there the spark was lit.
As a hobby I have spent many years photographing just about everything I could point my camera at. I experimented with landscapes, still life and even wildlife before discovering my true love… people.
I always imagined that being a wedding photographer would be too much of a good thing for me until a photographer friend asked me to be his second photographer at a wedding.
It was an amazing experience, I haven’t looked back since
