Winding the clock back to 2011...I was pushing doors to get that one break, that one opportunity to photograph a wedding. I got it, finally, as an assistant. In the hours before starting I got some breakfast - however I learnt a valuable (all be it early morning) lesson to always bring a change of clothes...I spilt down my trousers! The horror! You'll be pleased to know things have got better since then...but I still carry that change of clothes!

11 years on and weddings still bring me so much happiness. Not because it's about me and getting that 'feel', but because of the raw power of photographs. The emotion images can bring to us, the sentimental value for you means the world to me. Getting to tell stories, YOUR story, of the connection, the history and what is to come is beyond beautiful and a huge privilege.

Aside from photography I love to be with my family...days with them are where I'm most at home - it's the simple things which really do mean the most! My wonderful daughters are my inspiration - to teach them, show kindness and be silly too. And my amazing wife, for holding everything together...our hero! Not to forget our dog Monty...the ultimate grandad dog! (p.s. have a dog at your wedding and we'll be friends for life!)


I appreciate your time and hope this is just the start of a great relationship.
