HOW i BECAME A ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

AND WHY i LOVE IT!

As much as I love documenting people in love it hasn't always been that way and I wasn't born into photography, I didn't get a degree at University in the finer art of wedding photography either (shock, horror).

I actually first picked up a camera when I was just a wee lad at the age of 12 and got totally hooked taking pics of my first love.....Formula One!
Photography is what bonded me & my Dad, so it holds a special place in my heart, but regardless of all that sentimental & personal stuff, it is weddings where I have found my place at the table.

Creating personal moments for couples is so damn rewarding & so humbling to know I have left a positive impact on someones life is just the wow factor for me! I love the chucklesome fun & the breathtaking excitement that a wedding brings. It really is the best working environment for me!

In one word - FUN! I love people who make me laugh & I love spending my time at weddings cracking jokes & mingling with fun people. Trust me when I say we'll have a great time if you don't take yourself too seriously!

Love their memories. For me nothing beats a great wedding, but having great memories that show just how good your wedding was is priceless! I also love creating timeless portraits of wedding couples - get that sunset out!

2.

I Love binge watching Game Of Thrones - It is my all time fave show (Can't believe as I write this we are nearly finished with the series...Sad face). I love fruit cake (I consider myself a bit of a one actually) & copious amounts of coffee! I also love my music - anything from Queen to Pink Floyd. No excuse for Justin Bieber to be regarded as music :)

what makes MY IDEAL COUPLE?

I will tell you straight away that my style of wedding photography has a mixture of documentary wedding photography and stylised portraits. I believe in natural images with plenty of emotion & moments that make you laugh hard - all I do is tell the story of your crazily wonderful wedding through images. I love colour too, not that muted stuff, but a timeless punch and vibrancy that will forever be ageless! 

My photography style is designed around creating natural images that are led by emotion - I call it my pure and honest approach. I photograph weddings as unobtrusive as possible and being a lover of fun I want to ensure that you have copious amounts of it on your wedding day and not be that photographer who tries to be the centre of attention (yes they really do exist!). With all that said, one of things that all my couples want is beautiful moments of just them, so with that in mind you will always have those in your collection. 

I hear you already and you might be thinking how much you hate being photographed, how much you hate saying cheese and you don't want to spend your day in front of the camera and all you really want is to spend your day with your lovely families and your besties of course. I can put your mind at ease right now - I ain't that guy! I want to enjoy your day too and for me that means making sure I create images with honest smiles in them.

AWESOME FUN & AWESOME IMAGES

MY STYLE
