What do I like about wedding photography? The emotion, the history, the splendour, two lives and how they choose to express themselves in all one day, wrapped up in some epic imagery.
How is this expressed in my wedding photography, a knowing look frozen in time, reflections, textures, patterns, geometry, gorgeous landscapes with gorgeous couples and anything just a little bit off the wall....
By nature, I am much happier fading into the background than being the centre-of-attention, which I think actually benefits me in my work. And whilst not much of a dancer myself, I have been known to very quietly (and some would say, badly) sing to myself while working if the band strikes up a particular favourite (my real 'guilty pleasure' being, but not limited to, Teenage Dirtbag. Because I'm cool like that. Ahem.)
I have no formulaic approach; it's about a chemistry between you and I. It should be beautiful, simple and be 'you'. The wedding photos that you and I will love have not been born yet, and that prospect excites me more than anything else in my professional world.
It's about people and personalities; it's about family, friends and telling your story. No matter how grand or intimate the setting, how small or large the party, it is about connecting with the people around you and a shared love which transcends even the photography. These are the moments we strive to find and immortalise, and all these moments start with people.
Tell me about your wedding and that's where we start.
My style is based on observation rather than orchestration. I thrive off the emotions on show during a wedding, I take honest photographs with life and energy, I love photographing people interacting, capturing real and un-self conscious moments.
I won't interrupt you, ask you to pose unnaturally or ask you to do anything just for the sake of the camera. I'll ensure you stay relaxed and enjoy your day spending quality time with your family and friends - just as it should be.
I'm an optimist. I prefer to focus on what's good in the world rather than what's bad. I've traveled our planet and I really don't think the world is such a terrible place, I've met many more inspirational people than I have bad people; my positive outlook on life is at the very heart of my style of photography. I'm looking for happiness in my images, your happiness, the happiness of your family and friends.
Away from photography I'm a pretty simple guy really - I enjoy sport, music, art, history and travel.
I'm a storyteller and and artist.
Combined I'm your wedding photographer.

For me, your wedding is not about my portfolio! It's about you two and all the people you love celebrating together. I now have over a decade of experience shooting weddings, so I am totally confident that I can consistently produce images that are natural, emotive and artistic. You can relax and be totally at ease on your wedding day to be yourselves. Nothing awkward, I promise! Weddings are about people, not photographs.
I would love to capture your wedding.
I am a Manchester wedding photographer but I love to travel and have covered weddings all over the United Kingdom and destination weddings, too, so if you like my work then please do not hesitate to contact me :-)

I work with my husband who is also a photographer and we make an awesome team because we have different viewpoints... literally (his is 6ft 5 & mine is 5ft 1 - haha!). He is very classical/cool and I am 'very out of the box' so it's a win/win situation photographically.
We both adore candid, documentary, reportage, natural, as it happens, call it what you will type of photography. In saying all that, we still do formal in between it all, but it's the quirky, cool-marmite shots we have become known for.
As we have become more established in and around Lancashire, we seem to have attracted more groovy & creative souls after our services. This is awesome and it's where we eventually envisioned we would be - all good things come to those who wait!!
We ourselves recently got married and asked a very well known street photographer to shoot ALL our wedding in an urban, gritty and mono way.
Dare to be different, we say...
Whether the wedding is down the road or overseas the people we photograph, the changing light and surroundings always provide a fresh set of opportunities and challenges to translate vision into image.
I wouldn't describe myself as a traditional wedding photographer. I don't consult 'The Handbook of Wedding Photography Clichés' beforehand. I favour a more observational, creative, documentary-style approach rather than the stiff formality of endless group shots. My eyes will be peeled for those unexpected moments that can make a day. My shots are unposed, candid, spontaneous. They are moments captured rather than created and will tell the story of your big day in a naturalistic way. You'll hardly know I'm there as I move around like an f-stop ninja clicking away like my life depends upon it. But the focus will always be on you and your guests.
Weddings are thousands of moments and it's my job to capture as many of those moments as possible in the most creative way I can it's a challenge I love to accept. Especially if those moments consist of a face someone only pulls on a dance floor, high fives down the isle, emotions of all kinds, and who knows what.
Who am I? I'm just a gorgeous, devilishly handsome, brown eyed bombshell. The truth? OK Well I'm a movie nutter, a record collector and a whiskey faaaaaaan!!!
I look forward to hearing from you so I can document your very own adventure :)
I just want you to be your authentic-real-wild-shy-crazy-weird-wonderful and beautiful self. I am talking arty-dreamy-R E A L-raw-and-honest-documentary-style-photography.
Please geddinnnnnnn’ touch!
I wanna speak to you…
Hope to hear from you soon !
We take photographs and make films with our own creative, fun and unique way of telling your story. Based in Scarborough near York and Hull, we travel across Yorkshire, the UK and rest of the world to make memories that will last you forever and beyond.
We are a firm favourite with couples that don't necessarily like being in front of the camera and who adore the idea of having more time to have fun and enjoy the celebrations with their guests, rather than posing for photos.
