I've always documented my life with photographs, not words; I've just never got on with diaries or journals. But photographs tell the story for me. They tell me who I went to South Africa with in 1998, what my son looked like the day he was born and the look on my daughter's face the day she started walking. And those photographs bring the memories of my life flooding back to me. That's why I love photography. 
I want to tell your story, give you memories that will last a lifetime. Your Mum wiping a tear from her eye as you take your wedding vows, your first married kiss, your best friends going crazy on the dance floor, the looks that only you know the true meaning to. Being able to give people photographs of these moments is why I love what I do.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I'm located in Essex, UK, not far from London. I charge an additional fee for weddings outside England and Wales.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I shot my first wedding in 2012 and have now clocked up over 100 weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I'd say that I'm a creative documentary photographer. The story of the day and real moments are always my focus but I like to create dramatic portraits too.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I don't have a studio, I work from home but regularly use Skype to talk with my couples.
