Documentary-style photography at family celebrations & private parties


From birthdays to anniversaries, my style of photography lets you enjoy yourselves without having to pose for me all the time, while I simply fit in around you and capture natural, candid moments that tell the story of your party. Scroll down for some of my favourites and more about what to expect, then get in touch with a few details for more info and a personal quote.



“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 does it work?

Reserve the date

Use the contact form below to send me some details about you and your event and we’ll have a wee chat about everything by email, phone or Skype. When you’re happy I’m the photographer for you I’ll send you a link to my online booking system and that’s one more thing ticked off your To Do List.

Enjoy your party!

I’ll arrive early to say hello, and then you can pretty much leave me to it. No need to ever smile down the lens for my benefit, just relax and enjoy yourselves, and I’ll fit in around you without any fuss. I’m not quite the invisible man but people tell me they forgot I was even there.

Your Gallery & Photofilm

Editing and processing your photos takes up to two weeks. First I’ll send you a Photofilm of the best bits via Facebook or my website, and then your full gallery of finished photographs will be online and ready to share with all your family and friends.

Your Album & Archive

You can choose your favourites for a Hardback Storybook in the gallery itself, then I’ll design a draft and we’ll get it looking just right. Finally you’ll be able to download your full gallery as a digital archive in two sizes: full size for safekeeping, and a smaller size perfect for email or Facebook.

“It’s so hard to find the words to say how much I loved the photographs you took for my 40th birthday. You captured those precious moments so naturally and artistically. You really are one in a million!”Dwehasta Shah | 40th Birthday Dinner at HKK, London
