Congratulations brides and grooms and welcome to my wedding photography page.
Whilst being as informal as possible and working with only natural light, I pride myself on capturing your wedding day in a beautiful and artistic way revealing the natural emotions, beauty and romance that tells your love story as it unfolds. Wedding photography is the beauty and connection of you, as husband and wife, a day filled with love and laughter. Weddings are filled with very treasured and personal moments and this is why I choose to shoot with a natural and relaxed approach only giving subtle direction when needed. That way I can capture a true representation of those magical moments for you to treasure forever. I consider my wedding photography to be creative and modern offering a balance between both documentary and contemporary wedding photography.
“It doesn’t matter where you go in life, what you do or how much you have…it’s who you have beside you”
I offer a personal service with exceptional attention to detail. I like to work closely together with you throughout the build up to your big day as I feel communication is the key part of producing beautiful images for wedding photography.
Based in Portsmouth, I am available for wedding photography in Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex, Surrey and afar.
When couples are thinking about wedding photography they often ask questions that have been asked before. So I have put together a FAQ section that will answer some of those common questions. If there is anything you are not sure about or that I have left out, please do not hesitate to contact me…I am always happy to discuss your big day.

What is your style of wedding photography?
I consider my photographs to be creative and modern, offering a balance between both documentary and contemporary wedding photography. I follow the stages of your day photographing unobtrusively to capture real moments, I do give direction at times but rather than posing people I suggest ideas that evoke genuine emotions.
Do we see you before our wedding day?
Yes, on more than one occasion! I like to know my clients and all the details about their plans for their wedding day, it allows me to be as prepared as possible ensuring I can give you the best wedding photography I can.
Do you photograph posed group shots?
Yes, I do take photographs of posed groups if requested. People usually like to gather for their group shots with close family and friend’s after the ceremony.
Do you direct and pose couples?
On your big day I will only ask to steal you away for a short period of time allowing myself to capture some beautiful and intimate ‘bride and groom portraits.’ At this time I do pose couples, although I would rather not refer to it as posing. I tend to suggest ideas that evoke natural emotions.
Your free pre wedding shoot (included in all wedding photography packages) will ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable at this point on your wedding day. The pre wedding shoot helps me to get to know you both as a couple and also helps you to know what to expect from myself as your wedding photographer.
Does your wedding photography include all the little details?
Yes, I always shoot all the details.Wedding photography with out the details would be like a dessert with out its sand. I’m putting together the story of your wedding day in a series of beautiful pictures… every little detail counts to create the overall story and atmosphere, helping you to relive your day whenever you revisit your photographs.
What equipment do you use?
I use professional Canon equipment (please contact me if you would like a detailed list)
Do you edit your photographs
All photographs will be processed to a professionally high standard by myself. I finish with a range of vibrant colours and classic black and whites. I offer different levels of air brush so blemishes or unwanted markings can be removed (if requested)
Do you carry spare equipment?
Yes, I always carry back up cameras, lenses, batteries etc. I like to be as organised as possible making sure your wedding day goes as smoothly as possible from my end and so that I can do my upmost best to deliver you the best wedding photography I can.
When and how do we view our photos?
Processing time will be 2-3weeks from your big day (excluding album design) After this you will have a private viewing at the studios viewing room. Aside from your viewing session you will also get an access code to your very own online private viewing gallery so that you have access to pick out your favourite pictures for you album. Viewing gallery passwords can be shared with friends and family if you choses
Do you design and create Wedding Albums?
Yes, I love designing wedding albums. The printing is done by a professional Lab and they are available in different sizes and with a choice of covers.

Yes for wedding photography I ask for a 20% (£199.00) booking fee to secure your date and the rest of the total to be paid four weeks prior to your wedding day.
