I originally trained as a creative designer but found photography to be my medium after picking up a Canon 35mm in 2009. I haven't looked back since, shooting weddings all over the UK, Europe, and worldwide. I am beyond enthusiastic for weddings and photography, completely hooked on documenting people and the craziness of bringing friends and family together and plying them with food and drink!! I constantly try to find a creative frame from the ordinary moments, and I'm meticulous in my planning and never stop looking for that next frame.

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

I'm based in the UK, but shoot internationally. I charge a £500 travel fee for European weddings, and a £1000 travel fee for international.

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

I've been a full time wedding photographer now for 6 years, I was named a Rangefinder rising star in 2015, and have shot over 250 weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Authentic and genuine, a blend of creative documentary and fine art portraits. I always want my work to feel honest, and to give the viewer a sense of feeling and emotion.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Full day coverage, I don't stop, I strongly believe the best stuff happens way after the first dance. I charge £3500 with no time limits.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

My professional degree is Creative Product Design, and I've been completely self taught as a photographer. I now host and teach at my own workshops, along with speaking at international photography conferences.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I'm a very keen runner and cyclist, and I will travel for doughnuts, they are my nemesis!!!
