Real moments you’ll cherish forever

Looking back through my own photo albums, the candid photos of my friends being themselves and not posing for the camera are the ones I treasure the most, so that’s what I specialise in: relaxed, documentary-style photography of your family and friends lost in the moment and enjoying the party, reminding you how it felt to be there every time you open your album.

From proposals to engagement parties, wedding anniversaries to birthdays, I love what I do so if you like my style of photography I’d love to hear about your plans. Scroll down for my event portfolio and more about how it all works, and get in touch at the bottom of the page if you’d like to know more – thanks for visiting!

“Without exception, the best photos of our friends and family that we have ever seen. Every photo is so natural, unselfconscious and relaxed, such a wonderful reminder of the way it felt to be in the room at the time. We are over the moon with the beautiful photos and will treasure them forever.”The Waring Family | Elopement Reception in Wimbledon

How it all works

First, drop me a line to say hello

Get in touch below with a few details about your event and we’ll have a wee chat by email, phone or Skype and decide a package to suit you, with no hidden extras. There’s no silly questions so ask me anything! Then I’ll send you all the details to confirm, you pay a deposit, it goes in the diary and that’s it – it’s a date!

On the day, forget about me and enjoy yourself

I’ll arrive early to say hello, then I’ll get started and you can pretty much leave me to it! I’ll move around the room photographing candid moments and details so nobody needs to pose for the camera unless they ask to – just forget I’m there, relax and enjoy yourselves. I’m not quite the invisible man but people tell me they forgot I was even there!

And finally – your photos arrive

Back at the studio I’ll start processing each photo to look its best, then I’ll start editing your Photofilm and uploading your online gallery. Once your gallery is ready you’ll be able to share it with your family and friends, choose your favourites for your PhotoBook, and download your digital archive direct to your computer.
