I love photography and have done so for many years. Weddings are my passion and favourite kind of event to photograph. I love to capture the genuine emotion and the special moments that occur during the day, some of which are often not seen by my brides and grooms until they view their photographs after the day.
Unlike some photographers I do not want to control the wedding and like to capture people naturally. Guests and couples are quite often unaware of the camera and that I have even taken their photograph.
I shoot in a modern photo journalistic style and normally from a distance, rather than forcing a camera in peoples faces and asking for “a cheesey smile” which can more often than not result in very unnatural and unflattering photos.
I like to take time to get to know my couples so that I can capture them at their best and also so they feel comfortable in front of me and the camera. I have built many great friendships over the years and feel honoured to have been part of so many couples
Wedding photography is one of the most important reminders for a bride and groom to help them remember their special day after the event and for many years to come. My aim is for a couple to experience the emotions they felt on their special day in 10, 20 or 30 years time when they look back through their photos.
I am an award winning member of the Guild of Wedding Photographers.
I take great pride in offering a modern, friendly and unobtrusive approach to wedding photography.
There is no limit to the amount of photographs I take during a couples special day.
I professionally edit all photographs and supply them on disc in a variety of formats ready for print and social media to easily share with friends.
The images I provide all come with full print rights for non commercial usage. I do not restrict images in a way that they have to be printed by me unlike many photographers. I believe that you hire me to take your images and those images should be yours along with the freedom to choose print suppliers should you wish.
However should you choose to order wedding albums and prints from me I have a wide selection of suppliers chosen for their high quality to suit all tastes and budgets.
Guests can also order prints from a password protected area of my website should you wish.
I offer all couples a free no obligation home visit to discuss the various standard and personally tailored packages and options available (within my standard coverage area).
If you would like to arrange your free home visit please do not hesitate to call me on 01536 392503 or 07843 142600.
I cover an area of approximately 50 mile radius from Northampton within my standard charges. For locations outside the red circle I can discuss a reasonable mileage charge.
