Although I live in Cornwall, I love to travel and will go you are. I am a husband and father to two girls and can say that since having kids, I can barely get through a father of the bride speech without a little tear in my eye thinking about when I may get to do one for my girls! I am really privileged to be invited into my clients families most intimate moments and I make sure I capture all the emotion of their day.
I am located in Newquay, Cornwall in the South West of England. Travel is included in my price for weddings in Cornwall. A small fee to a charged for weddings further afield, price dictated by distance and whether or not accomodation would be required. But get in touch to discuss your plans and we will get it sorted no problem!
I have photographed 45 weddings in my first two years of business, and probably another 5 as a second shooter before I started my business.
My main package is full day coverage, usually 12 hours or so, with images delivered via an online gallery. I include a pre-wedding shoot (anywhere in Cornwall) with all full day bookings as I really believe they make for better images on the day. Prices for full day start from £1800 dependant on day of the week and time of year.
I am based in Newquay and love to meet prospective clients in person where possible, ideally with a cup of coffee! But if not, I insist on speaking to all couples via zoom beforehand, to make sure we are a good fit for one another.
I am completely self taught in photography, having started out in wildlife photography! Then kids came along and so I had less time to spend sitting in fields capturing wildlife and wanted to get images of my children. From here I developed a live of capturing people and giving them amazing memories and the rest is history!
I do believe that continuous development is important and so I regularly attend workshops to learn and improve on my existing skills, the last being an off camera flash workshop. I also am involved in styled shoots and editorial work to get the creative juices flowing. I have recently won the contemporary photographer 2023 award from the South West Wedding Awards and am a regional finalist in The Wedding Industry Awards 2024. I have had my wedding work published in several magazines including weddings and honeymoons magazine.
I guess that I am aware that it is difficult narrowing down a wedding photographer from the tens of thousands out there. You are spending a lot of money and you want to make the right choice. I am very proud of the reviews left by clients who feel they made a great decision in hiring me and that is shown by how many I keep in regular contact with long after the wedding day.
Away from photography, I have two young daughters and a wife, who all keep me busy, I love the outdoors and sea swimming and cold water dipping!
