I'm always on time, I always double check my equipment and more often than not bring enough spare batteries to power a small country.
I love telling stories through images, this is why I do what I do. Because of that I'm always watching to make sure I don't miss any of those easily missed moments. I’ve always been a creative person, channeling this through art at a young age before processing into Graphic Design.
I studied Graphic design at University before heading out into the big bad world to work and after a stint traveling the world and working abroad I set up my own design company which I ran for 4 years before finding my true passion for photography. Initially this was found amongst the landscape where my work was published in many magazines before diverting my attention to documenting people, I think you can see the progression here!
Eventually I found wedding photography and this is where I’ll be staying for quite some time. There is nothing more rewarding than delivering a set of frames to my couples and the joy it brings them and their future generations.
I will make you feel relaxed in front of the camera, I'll be there to tell you the time and to alleviate as much stress as I can. I'm there as more than your photographer for the day, I'm there to help in any way I can.
I love my family, photography (obviously) and playing football. I love barbecues, good coffee and watching the sun set and rise.
I'll tell your story and capture your memories as creatively as possible, I love what I do, let me share that with you.
Every wedding and every couples' story is different, but my ethos always remains the same and can be summed up with one word: relaxed.
I am there to document your wedding in the most creative way possible for the one-off, unforgettable day it should be. I prefer to capture people 'mostly' unaware, in a reportage style, as they are often the most beautifully natural photographs.
I prefer not to use flash but will use them for a few special shots if necessary. I love natural photography, so don’t expect me to dictate the flow of your day or set up lots of forced moments, it’s YOUR day after all! That doesn't mean to say I won't throw a few hints and tips your way when we're taking some couples pictures, we want you to look your best!
I’ll do my best to blend into the background, being as subtle and unobtrusive as is possible, whilst recording not only the feature parts of the day but also the small details, preparations and often missed moments which will help you re-live your wedding through the images for many years to come.
Of course, I will photograph the group and formal shots as necessary and will perform these as swiftly as possible so I can get back to doing what I do best. I prefer to keep these shots to an absolute minimum, more often no more than 10, so you can have more time for your own story, and get back to enjoying your day!
Couples who book me generally have a great sense of how they want their day to flow, are open to suggestions regarding the couples photography time.
They generally just want me there to watch and capture what I see throughout the day naturally, without influencing it.
If this sounds good to you then we could be a great match?
Q. Do you travel for weddings?
A. I'm based in Cornwall but I'm pretty flexible and can travel anywhere in the UK.
Q. When will we see the photographs?

A. Me of course!
Q. What's your style?
A. Relaxed, informal and artistic is how I would put it. I'm your fly on the wall for the day documenting and capturing your wedding story. I don't really like shouting at large groups so I prefer to keep these shots to a minimum. If that sounds good to you then I'm your man.
Q. Do you offer half days?
A. I do offer half days for midweek weddings, check out the wedding prices page for more info
Q. Can you arrange albums and prints?
