Welcome

Hi there, welcome to my website, I hope you like what you see.

If you just got engaged, congratulations! These are exciting times and I hope you enjoy every part of your wedding planning.

I am a Derby based photographer who specializes in wedding photography. Being a photojournalist at heart my approach is best described as lifestyle meets journalism. I believe in letting the moments unfold naturally and use available light, creative compositions and perspectives whenever possible. To capture your wedding story in the most honest and natural way, I work around you and take great care in capturing the genuine emotions, the love, laughter and real stories.

A few words on how I work.....

My main priority is to make you all feel relaxed, natural and at ease, which is why I work in a discrete and subtle way, leaving the atmosphere of your wedding undisturbed while telling your story with love, respect and care.

I am passionate about telling the complete story of your wedding day and this is why I do not restrict myself to only shooting during set hours. I love to capture all those defining moments that mean so much, as well as the out-of-the-ordinary and unplanned, from the excitement of getting ready until the hazy hours on the dance floor.

The hours of detailed planning before your wedding is equally unrestricted as is the time spend hand editing and retouching your photographs, one at a time, after your big day.

Taking on a limited number of weddings ensures each and every wedding is truly special and it allows me to feel completely fresh and full of creative motivation. I can genuinely share the excitement and emotion while giving you personalised attention every step of the way.

My Philosophy

“Great photographs start with a great connection. The most beautiful wedding photographs show genuine love and emotion and are free from unnatural posing. Wedding photographs should tell the whole story, capturing and preserving the unique and meaningful memories so you can some back to them in years to come and remember those feelings.”

Thank You....
