how long have you been doing this for?

I've been photographing weddings for 7 years now, and behind the camera for more than 10, dipping my toes into fashion and fine art. It all started many moons ago at Chesterfield college and it’s continued to grow from there.

How would describe your style of wedding photography?

Intimate, fun, and capturing natural wonderful-ness. A kind of blend of fine art and photojournalism, capturing beautiful images just as much as the ones that make you spit your drink out when you see them! If you’re looking for a non-traditional wedding photographer, you’re in the right place.

How many weddings have you done?

I seriously had to think about this one! This year I’ll have hit around the 50 wedding mark, both my own and associate work.

Will You be with us on The Day?

Indeed I will. I always work by myself, it's just the way I prefer it. This way I can work without any distractions and capture your day as everything happens around me. On occasion, I do work with a 2nd photographer when couples are after a little extra coverage (ask me if you’re interested in this!)

Do you only do a full-day package?

My wedding package is a starting point, but I also create bespoke packages tailored to suit your day, be it longer or shorter etc.

I'm terrible at having my photo taken, will we have to pose?

You can forget about the traditional 'say cheese!' weddings photos you've seen. My style is the complete opposite. You know that one photo of you together that you absolutely love that was taken by a friend when you weren’t looking? That’s the idea behind your images :)

My focus is on the real smiles and belly laughs, and creating images from what’s happening all around me. One of my couples recently commented that they wanted their photos to feel as though they were 'a guest at their own wedding', which I felt was a perfect way to describe the natural feel of my images.

When will you arrive on the day?

I usually arrive a few hours before the ceremony for some relaxed shots while everyone gets ready, and to get revved up for the day. In the weeks before the wedding, I'll ask who you'd prefer me to be with in the morning, unless you're both getting ready at the same location or live next door to each other! Going back and forth between locations first thing can quickly get stressful, so I prefer to stay in one location to keep everything relaxed and flowing smoothly.

When will you leave us?

I generally leave about 30-45mins to an hour after the first dance, after everyone's started throwing their best shapes on the dance floor! This gives me the chance to get some all-important party shots to complete your story. 

how will you get around on the day?

Normally I ride shotgun with the bride and groom, or I'd travel with a guest so I can make sure I'm always on time to capture you throughout the day, Plus it's always great to capture those 'riding to the reception' shots when you're all buzzed from the ceremony, glass of bubbles in hand, of course.

Do we give you a shot-list?

Personally I don't follow shot-lists as they can get lengthy and cumbersome quickly, and distract me from what’s happening all around. I always capture the key moments of the day, so I'll likely know 95% of the shots you want off-by-heart already. 

I do, however, always ask if you have any shots in mind I might not know to get, like of a certain family member or decoration, for example, so I’ll know to you want them captured.

How many images will we get?

Every wedding is different and anything can happen, so an exact number is always really hard to pinpoint! In my full day package, I hand my couples a minimum of 350 finished images, and for shorter coverage lengths this will be a little less (however I almost always end up giving WAAY more). These will all be stored both in your private online gallery and a USB stick if you’ve chosen a full day’s photography.

Will we get the unedited shots from the day?

No - all my couples receive a finished, professionally edited story of their day.

When will our images be ready?

All being well, it normally takes 2-3 weeks for me to work on your images and put together your story, though this can be longer during my busy months (June - September). You'll receive a personal email inviting you to your private gallery, and a package in the post with a USB stick full of your images. This will contain both web-friendly images for sharing online/emailing, and high-res versions so you can print-print-print!

Are travel costs included?

I do include all my travel costs within the UK mainland unless I need to hop on a plane to get to your destination. If you're big day is particularly far-out, or overseas, we'll work out a bespoke quote including travel and any accommodation if it’s needed for me to be there on time on for your wedding,

If your wedding is over a few days for example, or somewhere very remote, your quote will be tailor made to include everything necessary.

Do you do albums?

Yes! I work with Blurb albums to create beautiful, hard-back storybooks in varying sizes and finishes. Mine start at £200 for an 18x18cm hardback storybook. And if albums aren't your thing, ask about my print options.

Do we need to set aside food for you?

I'm a massive food. Massive. One of the things I enjoy asking couples, with eager anticipation is, 'what food are you having?!'

Regardless, I always pack some sustenance to have while you’re sitting down to dine. But, I'll NEVER say no to a few tasty morsels, if you’re offering!

How do I book?

Simple! Fill in my contact form here or hit the button below; include some juicy details about your day and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
