CIVIL CEREMONY & WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I am not strictly a wedding photographer. In fact I never intended to be one at all, but after many requests to snap various big days I eventually took the plunge. I now shoot a select handful of ceremonies every year, so if you're interested in booking me as your civil partnership or wedding photographer please read on.

First and foremost I am a documentary photographer. I specialize in a photojournalistic style of capture that, even though growing massively in popularity, is definitely not for everyone. Your pictures will never contain the traditional ensemble of agitated, grumbly group shots or an array of awkward through gritted teeth grins. Instead I will deliver something neither forced nor staged; above all it will be real, relevant and unique to you. So if you like what I do and you're sure of your choice of photographer then the rest should be easy. Make a booking enquiry now and I shall get back to you pronto.

THE PACKAGE

Increasingly more and more people wish to receive their images in the form of removable media, online galleries and cloud storage, in order to be able to share them with family and friends all over the world. Taking current trends into consideration I decided to take the headache out of trying to decide over silver, bronze, blue, brown or zig bloody zag packages and offer one straightforward, value for money, digital package with the option to buy printed products, if you want to, without obligation. There will be no hard sell or hidden costs and I certainly don't believe people should have to pay for more than they need. This is the kind of deal I would want for my big day!

  • What is the turnaround time for my photos and/or printed products?

    After your session is over, it usually takes around 2-3 weeks to finish your photos. Peak times (May - Sept & Dec) may see a turnaround time of 6-8 weeks. Printed products are expected to be with you no longer than 2-3 weeks after payment has been made.

  • Do you do albums and prints?

    I do indeed! Visit my photo shop for a taste of what's on offer. I am affiliated with various highly skilled pro-lab printer folk and bespoke album/frame makers including Loxley and Queensberry. Feel free to view their respective websites and if you like any products on offer please request a quote from me. Alternatively for a full list of current locally produced printed product prices please contact me via email.

  • Do you do “trash the dress or suit” shoots?

    Oh yes if you want to have some fun in the mud, grass, sea or with paint and food I will be happy to shoot the whole hilarious shebang. Please book me as your portrait photographer if you’re interested in getting messy.

  • Do you do Black & White, Sepia or Vintage look images?

    Each one of your photographs are edited and enhanced to look their very best with a primary focus on full vibrant colour. I can make special adjustments on request and I will use my digital know how to edit some key shots differently if it will suit the image.

  • Will you photograph in a traditional style?

    In a word no. This is because it doesn’t play to my strengths as a photographer and my heart simply would not be in it. I believe you should get a photographer whose heart is in it, and I will be happy to point you in the right direction:)
