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 do want natural wedding photos that make your heart sing…and then shout louder as time goes by.  You view your big day as a celebration of life at a wedding, rather than a showcase of pretty things. You want reportage wedding photography that, well…that doesn’t look like typical wedding photography.

Informal, unconventional, non-traditional and bold.

Thank you for spending a whole magical day with us and for taking such beautiful pictures!  I’m nearly as glad that Enric found you on the internet as I am that I found him on the dance floor!

Sophie and Enric

Thank you so much for capturing what was the best day of our lives so perfectly, and letting us relive the moments, emotions, and funny stories from the day so vividly.

Jayne and Gib

Wedding Slideshows

These slideshows have 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.


Relax, have fun, be yourself.

Think of me as a guest.  One that’s relaxed, cool and above-average looking.  I mingle, chat, take pictures.

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.

A Wedding in Devon

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...

Say Hello

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!

I’d love to hear from you if this sounds like your cup of tea.
