  • Corporate Event Photos – London boat trip

    I don’t just shoot weddings! I have some regular clients who book me for event photography as well, in this case a corporate party event. These are a lot of fun, and require a similar skillset to weddings. This was the setting for this particular party, which was an end of year party. The boat […]

  • Wedding at Shiplake College Henley

    Bridal Prep – Caversham I shot this wedding with a friend of mine who knew the couple, so it was a very relaxed affair. I’ve not shot a wedding at Shiplake College before but as Henley is close to where I live I was very keen to see it. Andrew went off to cover the […]

  • Family Photoshoot with Gareth and Natalie

    In addition to wedding photography I also do the odd family photoshoot when people ask me to!  It’s something I’ve done for my own family and friends and it supplements the wedding photography quite nicely, so you will see more of this from me next year.  I’d arranged to meet up with Gareth and Natalie […]

  • Always nice to be published!

    I had some photos from Emma and Jerry’s wedding published in Bride this week. https://www.bridemagazine.co.uk/articles/a-bright-sunflower-themed-summer-wedding-in-berkshire?fbclid=IwAR21JCRRrGPZu1NI2y29qCH9XgwOHqr0TmoKtmJlsX7RSehz5svDEnGz8eM It’s nice to get published, but it’s not something I aim for. I know a lot of photographers enter competitions and try and get into magazines all the time. I don’t, mainly because I’m too lazy ( apart from on […]

    I don’t do a lot of engagement sessions for some reason, then when I do happen to do one, I really enjoy it and think to myself, “I should do more of these!”.  This photoshoot was quite a special one however, with a really interesting back story, so bear with me!  Debi has known me […]

  • Wedding Photography | A Sense of Fun

    Wedding photography is a serious business, but also often a hilariously funny one( see articles like this for examples https://www.womansworld.com/posts/funny-wedding-pictures-101706). As a wedding photographer a sense of empathy is one of my core strengths. I need to be able to spot the fun bits and take part. I also need to know when to stop […]

  • Wedding Photography is not copy and paste

    Every wedding is different… And therefore every wedding requires a different approach and 100% of my care and attention. I can’t just rock up to the venue and do what I did last week. While most weddings do follow a vaguely similar timeline in the UK, there are a large number of other things that […]

  • Documenting Weddings – Second shooters

    Do you need a second photographer? When you book me to photograph your wedding there is one quite important decision to make. Do you book a second shooter? A second shooter is a photographer there to assist the main photographer. This could be just carrying stuff, holding lights or taking pictures. Below I will outline […]

  • What is Documentary Wedding Photography?

    Documentary vs Posed I get asked this a fair bit by clients so I thought a blog post was in order!  I think of myself as a reportage/documentary photographer, but what does this actually mean?  Traditional wedding photography was basically a collection of group shots and then some staged shots with the happy couple.  This […]
