I will be with you all day from getting ready to the first dance, capturing the story of your wedding as it unfolds. You will receive your images, high res, on a USB. Also…
I will provide a complimentary pre-wedding / engagement shoot prior to the wedding, providing you with pictures that you can use for Save the Date, Thank you cards, in a guest book or simply for your own memories. This gives you an opportunity to feel comfortable with me, so that you can relax more on your big day. Also, and perhaps more importantly, it just gives us a chance to get to know each other a bit before your big day. I will be with you all day on your wedding and you will feel a lot more comfortable knowing me a bit before hand rather than have a complete stranger following you around all day like the paparazzi!
As you can probably tell by now from my portfolio of work, what I love best is capturing the natural moments that occur throughout your day. I will therefore take lots of candid / reportage photographs to ensure that I tell the story as it happens. Laughter, smiles, little glances, and people enjoying themselves at your wedding and you enjoying yourself at your wedding!
I will take you away from the wedding party for 20-30 minutes at some point during the day to photograph you together. Having already had an ‘engagement shoot’ this part of the day is generally very easy and fun. It is a perfect opportunity for you to get a moment to yourselves away from all your guests. I often put my long lens on and let you take a moment to yourselves, whilst I just capture this on my camera. I often also steal you away for a moment in the early evening if there is a nice evening light to get those beautiful golden light photos that are very romantic. This all depends on the weather and how much you are up for it. But it is nice to play it by ear.
I do also take formal group shots, although I encourage you to keep your list to around six, so that I can do them very quickly and free up time to get the lovely natural shots. However, I do think they are important, and needn’t be too boring or tedious if organised properly. Take a look at my post on the group shot here.
You will get a USB of the edited wedding shots (around 400 images) that I will send to you around 4 weeks after the wedding. All images will be digitally processed and worked on by myself in post-production to give you the finest look. I provide you with password protected access to your own online gallery where family and friends can view all your wedding photos. They can also buy prints and digital downloads directly from the gallery. It is also a great place for you to select your favourite photos for an album or for prints and enlargements, canvas blocks etc (choice of products is limitless – just ask) I can create an album or Photo Book at an additional cost. More details on albums and how they can be purchased as a wedding gift here. or download my brochure by clicking the button below.
I am based in Nottingham, but often travel to London and further afield for weddings.

As a candid / reportage photographer, I feel that my job when photographing a wedding lies in capturing natural moments of your day as they happen. I also like to have fun with the wedding party, and will take a few moments to get some special shots of the married couple as well as some fun shots with the bridesmaids, grooms men and any other family members who are willing to have some fun with me and my camera. I tend not to spend too long assembling groups for formal shots, although of course we will get those shots. Your wedding is a special day, and I want to document the story as it unfolds, whilst fitting in with your plans as easily as I can. I love weddings. Each one is so different and unique and it is these unique touches that I love to capture. A smile, a glance, a laugh, children playing absent mindedly, the nervous groom, the anticipation and joy. All to share for years to come. For further examples of weddings I have photographed, please visit the recent weddings on my blog.
