You want your wedding photos to reflect you: Creative, quirky, complex, full of layers, and worth a linger
Wedding pictures after wedding pictures flash by and it’s become a bit of a blur. A whirl of brown vintage filters and silhouetted figures reflected in a puddle. They’re all lovely of course, except lovely doesn’t describe what you’re looking for. Rather than idealised, you want real life; rather than sanitised, you want warts and all. Not literally of course, but you don’t want what the wedding industry tells you that you should want. You view your big day as a celebration of life at a wedding, rather than a showcase of pretty things. You want photos that, well…that don’t look like wedding photography.
Unposed Wedding Reportage
Warning: Has music. I won’t boss you around, force you to smile, when to fake kiss. Just relax and be yourselves. Here’s an example of my take on wedding reportage. They’re unguarded, candid moments full of connections, humour and whatever moments and emotions spring up on the day.

I absolutely love weddings – not because of grand venues, or decorations and I’m not really into shoes that much. I know you two lovebirds are bloody important, as are the folks that you’ve chosen to be with you on your special day. Nope, I love weddings because magic happens when people gather. People – the connections, the relationships, the individual quirks that they bring, all that good stuff magnified under a terrific occasion that is your wedding day. I seek compelling moments in frames; from the nuanced and complex, to the simple but elegant, looking beyond the obvious because I believe it’s the parts of the day that you missed, that you’ll want to remember most.

Fiona + Freddie If you've read any of my previous wedding blog posts, you can correctly assume I'm not really one for putting details into writing. It's often a struggle for me, as I think wedding celebrations are all about, well, they're all about celebrations - not...read more
Sophie and Enric got married at Stoke Newington town hall, had canapes in the park, and celebrated on a steamer boat along the Thames. Those are the parts of the sum but the whole was so much more: I sometimes need to be reminded of how great my home city is. London...read more
Get in touch
You’re spontaneous, in-the-moment, creative and you want something a little different from the norm. You value real moments: that there are possibilities for amusing and serendipitous to go with the extraordinarily beautiful, because you know a great song isn’t just a rousing chorus, or a fairy-tale isn’t full of Cinderellas!
If this sounds like you, then I’d love to hear from you.
