Wedding Photography

As a wedding photographer, I am known for blending into the background, capturing moments you hadn’t realised had happened, and the whole story of your special day. 

My style is natural and unobtrusive with a creative mix of documentary and artistic portraiture with lots of fun thrown in.

While I love unstaged images, I know that family photos are an important part, not just of your wedding, but of your family history. Working with you, I can keep it short and fun so you can get back to your guests and the wedding action as quickly as possible!

I also like to spend some time with just the two of you. Many people feel awkward in front of a lens, but my years of wedding photography experience will make it feel  relaxed, fun and natural, creating gorgeous natural bride and groom portraits for you to treasure for your time together.

But not all the work happens on your wedding day!

In the lead up, we will plan the day to decide the important photographs and schedule them in so that there is a natural flow to your day. I like to find out about you and your families and friends and what got you to this special day, so I know what connects you all – and then reflect that in beautiful imagery.

After the wedding, I will carefully select and edit your images, providing you with a full and wonderful story of your day in a mixture of colour and black and white, all ready for you to view within eight weeks.

I offer three main wedding packages (see below) – all can be adapted to suit your needs and budget.

Located in the Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire borders, I serve Farnham, Guildford, Woking, Reading, Winchester and parts of London. I am happy to travel anywhere, however there is a small charge for weddings outside of a 25 mile radius of my Farnborough home.

These images will only ever increase in value as the years pass. They will reflect the time, effort and love that went into planning your perfect day. One day, they may be the most precious thing you own from your wedding.

If you love holding precious images in your hands, then you’ll love having an album to tell your whole story or prints to display and share with your family and friends. I offer a printing and framing service through an excellent professional printing lab. Your wedding photo album is a family heirloom. Just like your wedding pictures, this story book should reflect who you are, to all the generations that follow. As such, I also offer a bespoke design service.

Yes, all my wedding packages include a pre-wedding consolation to discuss exactly what you would like covered. If possible I like to arrange this at your wedding venue to look around together. Knowing where you are going on the day of your wedding goes a long way to you both feeling relaxed and enabling you make sure there is enough time for your guests and some photos, without feeling rushed.

If I haven’t done a wedding photography shoot at your venue before or visited for a while I will do a recce. This helps to plan where I will take the group and bride and groom shots and to see how far away everything is. For example If you have a “must have” shot at the venue’s lake that is a 10-minute walk away, it’s essential to know this to plan your itinerary for a relaxing stroll there rather than a sprint! I will ideally arrange our pre-wedding meeting at your venue for us to walk around together. Knowing where you are going on the day of your wedding goes a long way to you both feeling relaxed and enabling you make sure there is enough time for your guests and some photos, without feeling rushed.

As a professional photographer, I am fully insured and can provide documentation upon request.

Yes. All my packages include travel up with a 25 miles radius of GU14 6QH. (approximately a 1 hour drive). Over that there is a small charge of £1 per mile.  I am happy to discuss distances further than this, including weddings abroad.

Yes please, if it’s a whole day wedding. Just a bar snack or similar will be perfect. Whilst you eat your wedding breakfast I take my break to eat, as well as scout some further shot locations. I will also pop in and out of the Wedding breakfast. I do not tend to take photos of people actually eating as it’s rarely flattering! Alternatively, I will take a 2 hour break whilst you and your guests enjoy your wedding breakfast.

This is always a tricky one to define as each wedding and couples are different and I shoot with that in mind. I am known for being unobtrusive and for getting on well with everyone and putting people at ease. I love natural documentary images with some creative portraiture too. If you look through my gallery (link) you will get a good feeling for my work. I do not use coloured filters and edit the colours true to what have chosen for your day.

It’s your day and entirely up to you. In your questionnaire I give you a list of group shots to consider having. I suggest a maximum of 10.

If you do want them it’s essential we plan the time for them in your itinerary to ensure we don’t run over time. In your questionnaire and our meeting I request you tell me as much about your guests as possible. I bring in what I have learnt to the group shots to create natural moments. When you look back on your photos you will remember the good time you were having with your friends and family. Not “that’s when we were having the formal photos”

Because you will love your photos and have a good time at your wedding!

I am good at what I do and I really love it. I am good because I invest in training every year to improve on both my photographic and business service. I am a Qualified Wedding Photographer with The Guild of Photographers which means I have reached a recognised high professional standard.  I don’t just take great pictures and get on well with your family and friends – I help you enjoy your whole day by helping you plan it from years of experience.

I’ve never yet not been able to attend a wedding but, as with any supplier, it is possible that an illness or emergency could prevent me from attending your wedding. In this unlikely event, I will try to find a similar style replacement from my network. If this is not possible, then the final, worst and last case scenario is that I will refund the money you have paid me.

It is a fact of life that technology can sometimes run into some issues. However, I have enough equipment to bring as a back-up on the day. My gear is well maintained so I have taken every step I can to prevent problems and protect your images. I also shoot onto dual cards simultaneously, which ensures multiple copies of each image.

If you love actually holding precious images in your hands, then you’ll love having an album to tell your whole story or prints to display and share with your family and friends. I offer a printing and framing service through an excellent Professional Printing lab. As your Wedding Album is essentially your Family Hierloom I also offer a bespoke design service . Much like your wedding pictures, I think this story book should reflect who you are, to all the generation that follow.
