Creative Story Telling
Photographs are supposed to make us feel. They should make us remember emotions we felt. They should take us back to a moment and make us feel completely absorbed within it. This is never more true than for wedding photography.
Weddings, first and foremost, are about the people. They’re about connections, relationships, and a shared experience. Whether that’s a small intimate ceremony or an extravagant celebration with hundreds of people. When you look back through your wedding photographs those emotions should feel as real as they did on the day of your wedding.
Life is full of excitement, of energy, of emotion. Your wedding photographs should be the same.
Unobtrusive. Relaxed. Natural.
Wedding photography should tell the story of your wedding day, but it shouldn’t be the story of your wedding day. My approach is to be completely unobtrusive throughout day, only giving (polite) instruction for short sessions of couples portraits and posed family photograph (and only if you want them).
Throughout the day I try to blend into the crowd and be the kind of person you’d be happy to have at your wedding. No dramas, no stress, no trying to take the limelight. Just me, working hard in the background to create the best set of images I can for you.
“I forgot you were there for most of the day” is a comment I hear a lot from couples, and it’s something that I take great pride in. I’m not hide away in the corner, in fact I’m right amongst the action, but with the right attitude and approach I’m there without causing any distruption.
I live in Derbyshire, just on the edge of the Peak District, with my wife Catherine, daughter Abigail, and Labrador Freddie.
When I’m not photographing weddings or looking after Abbie, you’re liking to find me out in the Peak District walking with Freddie. Probably still taking photographs.
I’ve been photographing professionally for over 6 years, and take a limited number of weddings each year.
