I'm there to blend in and capture those all important natural moments for you with the lightest of touch and without the cheese. Pure relaxed, candid photojournalism would best describe my style... with the occasional arty twist, just to keep things fresh.
If you love a good party, love laid back Kiwi's then I'm sure you will love me and I would love to shoot your wedding. I offer both photography, videography and Super 8 film packages to suit every wedding. Let's have an adventure together.
Im based in Gloucestershire here in the United Kingdom and cover weddings throughout the Cotswolds and Europe. It doesn't cost as much as you might think to pack me off on your destination wedding with you, so sing out if you are weighing up the options.
I started filming weddings back in New Zealand when I was quite young as I was the only kid in the village with a video camera. I moved on to photography in my 20s with a solid grounding in advertising/travel photography and have shot over 200 weddings since.
I am a real laid back kind of guy - its a Kiwi thing. Nothing stresses me out and I am a calming influence in any situation - I can think fast on my feet too. This combination is awesome when it comes to weddings and my documentary style as it helps me to read a situation and ready myself to capture "the moment'. With documentary photography there are no second takes. I am also super happy to take group and family photos for you too, should you want them.
I offer two packages both of which offer full coverage from your Bridal Preparations right through to and including your first dance. I stay on way past this to capture all your guests letting their hair down and going nuts on the dance floor. I'm really giving with my time as its important for my clients to have the best wedding experience available.
I love meeting clients face to face for a drink and hearing all about what they have planned for their big day, its such an exciting time! If you are based further afield then FaceTime or Skype works really well too.
I don't hold any official pieces of paper when it comes to photography but I have photographed enough "Big Days" to know how and what makes the most amazing photographs. Photos that will make you "Oooo" & "Ahhh" and may cause Happy tears.
I love climbing trees, playing squash and walking out in the forest with my amazing wife Sandra and our doggies. We love heading to the beach in our funky VW camper "Wilfred" for wine, BBQs and sunsets.
