Chronicling people’s lives as events unfold one second to the next is my favourite photographic subject. As a former professional musician, I know what it’s like to be in front of the lens and understand the importance of working with someone who is sociable, on your wavelength and above all, unobtrusive. After all, your special day isn’t a photo shoot, you should be free to enjoy it.
My inclination in work has always been to do what I love, to totally absorb myself into it but to keep things relaxed. I like to think this attitude shows in my wedding portfolio. Every moment counts thus capturing your finest ones in a fun, natural and un-fussy way is my mission.
Your eyes are your windows onto the world and it’s you who chooses where to point them. A documentary photographer is no less subjective and the pictures he takes reflect events as he sees them. This is what makes one wedding photographer distinct from another – the lens of his imagination. When you hire me you’re not just getting the same camera bodies, lenses and flash guns that everyone has, you’re getting the personality and unique eye behind them.
When I started out as a wedding photographer I soon met a charming and seasoned professional – Mike Riley. Having seen what I could do with a camera, Mike put me in touch with one of the best in the industry – Paul Rogers – who was looking for an intern. After coming to one of my shows Paul saw my potential and snapped me up for the job. Both Mike and Paul have helped me build my wedding photography skills to their current level. My portfolio sums up what I have to offer.
