WINNER OF “WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR” (NE & Yorkshire) Corporate Livewire Prestige Awards 2022-2023
“ My style is fresh, modern and contemporary ”
When it comes to wedding photography, experience is something a photographer cannot buy. I have over 28 years experience at the very top level, and I have earned a National reputation for constantly producing distinctive high quality, creative, award winning images. Although ultimately a camera is a camera, the big difference is who is behind it !!
My approach to wedding photography is for a stress free day for the bride and groom, which is dictated by the happy couple’s wishes and requirements. This would normally combine a mixture of arranged and unobtrusive/spontaneous images. If you desire photography which involves no direction by myself on the day at all, and you want me to fade into the background and quietly capture some of the magic from a distance, this is no problem as well.
Uppermost in my mind is the fact that the wedding day is about the bride and groom, and their guests. With this in mind photography is carried out with maximum efficiency, without compromising on standards or quality. While photography is my priority, equally important is that the day is enjoyable and fun for everyone involved.
Having covered everything from a wedding in York with just the bride and groom at the wedding (myself and the car driver being asked to be witnesses!!), very different!! To an Asian wedding with 500 guests, each wedding is as they say different.
My vocation luckily takes me further afield as well, having covered weddings as far away as Central London, Essex, Wales, Scotland, Holy Island and the Lake District to mention just a few, and this year I will be going further afield to Cork and Dublin in Ireland, Paris and lastly Venice.
My philosophy is great images for a great price, and all packages are designed with you in mind. However, I can tailor make a package if you have any requirements you wish to discuss, and I would love to hear about all your plans for your big day. Appointments can be made to suit yourself, during the day, or evenings, and on weekends.
On your wedding day, all you need is love…… and a great wedding photographer to create the perfect day to remember. You only get one chance with your wedding photography, make the right choice!!! 28 years plus experience, and over 90 awards say it all!!!
“A day of my passion = A lifetime of your memories “
