Booking me to photograph your event lets you relax and enjoy the party properly, while I take care of the photos for you. I specialise in capturing all the atmosphere and excitement as naturally as possible, so you’ll be able to re-live the occasion every time you load up your gallery or open your album.

I’ve got over a decade of experience photographing events and celebrations in London and all over the world, for everyone from Sir Richard Branson and the BBC, to regular families like you and me. I’m very friendly and happy to help, so even if this is your first time booking an event photographer there’s nothing to worry about.

To check my availability just get in touch with a few details – I look forward to hearing from you!

How it works


Check availability.

Just send me a few details including the date, location, and an idea of timings, and I’ll get back to you with some options and prices.

If there’s anything you’re not sure about, such as how long you need event photography for, I’m happy to talk it through with you before we book anything.

Enjoy your party.

On the day I’ll arrive around 15 minutes early to say hello, and after that you can pretty much forget about me and enjoy yourselves.

My approach is totally candid, or ‘reportage’ style, meaning I simply fit in around you like a guest with a camera, looking for natural moments and happy people. No need to keep posing for me!

After the party.

When I’ve finished editing and processing I’ll present all the finished images in a private online gallery for you to share with your guests.

From there you’ll be able to browse the full collection, choose favourites for an album, and download a high resolution digital archive for safekeeping.

Frequently asked questions


How do we book?

Just get in touch to tell me a bit about your event and if I’m available we’ll work out a package, then I’ll set up a booking page on my website for you. There’s a deposit to pay and a booking agreement we both sign, then the date’s reserved and you’re all booked in.

How many photos do we get?

Every event is different, so depending on what you’ve got planned I usually deliver around 60-80 finished photos per hour that I’m with you. They’ll all be in your online gallery, and included as high resolution digital negatives in your downloadable archive.

Will the photographs be colour or B&W?

Usually a mixture of both, but mostly colour. I’ll give everything a creative polish that suits the occasion, and I avoid heavy fashion-style ‘airbrush’ retouching of people. Your family and friends much prefer the real you!

When do we receive our photos?

For family events & celebrations it usually takes around one to two weeks to process everything and prepare your gallery. Albums take a month or so after approval to be delivered, and your Digital Archive is usually ready to download around a week after the gallery opens.

Can we get prints or a book of favourites?

Absolutely! I think your photos feel much more meaningful as real prints you can hold in your hands. I can create beautiful albums of your favourites, and you’ll be able to order premium quality prints and wall art directly from your gallery.

Can you provide videography or a photobooth?

I specialise in photography only, but I know some amazing people who offer photobooths, videography, and other event services including magic, music, and planning. Just let me know and I’ll be happy to introduce you!

What if we need to cancel or postpone?

For cancellations the deposit is non-refundable to cover the costs of reserving the date, and depending on the notice given there may be a further fee payable. For postponements I may be able to transfer fees paid to the new date, if I’m available. Full terms are detailed in the booking agreement.

Do you photograph weddings?

I love weddings, and I have a wedding photography website especially for them, with plenty of galleries and info about my style and approach. My pricing for weddings includes all the time and expertise I’ll dedicate to you before, during, and after your wedding.

Albums & Apps


When your photographs are ready you’ll receive a link to your own private online gallery that works great on computers, tablets and smartphones.

You can order professional quality prints from your gallery, or choose your favourites from the gallery and I’ll design a custom hardback book to celebrate the occasion in style.

When your order a book I’ll also create a photofilm of the highlights and include it in an exclusive custom smartphone app which you can share with anyone you like, completely free.
