About us

I've specialised in wedding photography for the past 20 years on a professional basis, and covered many hundreds of weddings, so you can be confident that I will photograph your special day in the manner you expect and deserve. I love what I do and I’m always excited at the opportunity of capturing truly great images. I like to photograph what I would want to remember if it were my wedding. I’m unobtrusive, understanding that it is your big day.

My style is a creative blend of documentary and traditional wedding photography. When we are at your wedding we blend in like a friend, we dress and act like one of your guests. We aim to fit right in with your guests so that we can move around and photograph your friends and family like they were our friends and family.

I have been attending weddings at venues such as: The Lawn Rochford, Roslin Beach Hotel southend, the Westcliff Hotel, Porters in Southend on Sea, Prittlewell Priory southend on sea, Friern Manor, Stockbrook Manor Billericay, Pontlands Park, Newlands Hall Chelmsford, Rochford Hotel, The Ye olde plough house bulphan, De Rougemont Manor, Leez Priory Chelmsford, Orsett Hall, Crondon Park stock, Channels Golf Club, Warley Park Golf Club, Maylands Golf Club, Three Rivers Golf Club, Layer Marney Tower, Maidens Barn Chelmsford, Mulberry House Ongar, Langtons Registry Office, Park hotel southend, Cromwell Manor, Holiday Inns Brentwood & Basildon, The Ivory Rooms, Billericay, The Chichester wickford, Lords Golf & Country Club Rayleigh, Marks Hall Coggeshall, to name but a few..

So if your looking for an accomplished professional photographer with a keen eye for detail who comes fully insured with backup procedure, then look no further as you now have a better understanding of the person behind the camera and the images I take, the passion I have for photography capturing the special moments that life has to offer.


F.A.Q
Here are some answers to questions that you may have..


Q. What does the consultation meeting involve?
The no-obligation, free consultation can be done in your home or at your wedding venue where can have a chat about your wedding and you can see more of my work and my sample wedding albums. Booking fee of £50 will be required to secure your date.


Q. Do you take traditional group photographs?
Yes we recommend doing a small number of formal group shots of family & frends at your wedding, normally after your ceremony at your reception venue once you have had a glass of bubbly. Group shots can take anywhere from 30 - 40 minutes depending how long it takes to find the guests you need in your photographs. I recommend that you should arrange for the ushers to play their part in finding and help gather people ready for group photographs to speed up the process.


Q. How can you keep your prices so low?
Because my prices are fair I am kept very busy, and that means I can keep prices even lower, simple economics really. This is a full-time photography business using excellent equipment so quality is very high. As you can see, you are simply getting high standards for less cash.


Q. Can we have two photographers at our wedding?
Yes you can add a second photographer to your package this gives the advantage of a far greater selection of photographs capturing different moments from your wedding day and all of the key moments are taken on two sets of cameras from two different perspectives. The second photographer also acts as an assistant helping to make everything run smoothly on your wedding day. I process the images along with my own so that all of your photos are in the same flawless style. Recommended for larger weddings with over 100+ day guests attending.


Q. What sort of shots do you take at the reception?
We take detail shots of the tables, decor and wedding cake, as well as candid’s of guests mingling as much as time allows, and we like to stay and get you being announced into the room, as well as cutting cake, and the speeches. With the full day package I will continue capturing the arrival of your evening guests and include party shots right up to and just after your first dance.


Q. What type of Wedding book do you supply?
My most popular Photobook - Lay-Flat design A4 coffee table book containing 12 pages with a hardback cover is a lovely memento album of your wedding day. The book contains an average of 50 favourite shots from your day.


Q. Do you offer a Pre-wedding shoot?
Yes. Pre-wedding shoot gives you the opportunity to see how I work, to feel more comfortable in front of the camera and for us to get to know each other better before the wedding. All of which makes for a much more enjoyable and successful experience on the day of your wedding. Pre-wedding shoot can take place at your venue or local park around a month before your wedding. Pre-wedding shoot + high resolution images.


Q. Do we need to provide a meal for staying on past the wedding breakfast?
A meal would be gratefully excepted as photographing a wedding can be long day, so during your wedding breakfast I usually retire to eat once your guests are seated.


Q. When will we receive our photographs?
You will receive your Photographs on a DVD Disc or USB flash drive after you return from honeymoon. (Approximately 2-3 weeks) But during busy peak summer months, it may take a little longer.


Q. What kind of equipment do you use?
I use professional high end Canon equipment, I carry two Canon 5D MkIII - Digital SLR cameras that can produce a file size suitable for printing on a bill board. Plus a selection of L series lenses (Canon’s flagship Professional lens)


Q. What if it rains?
In the event of bad weather, we would search for a sheltered area or locate an area in doors or even wait for a break in the weather,


Q. What happens if you fall ill on our day?
I have never ever missed a wedding, but for your reassurance, I have a network of photographers to call upon should something extraordinary happen.


Q. What if we cancel our wedding?
This should be done in writing and at the earliest opportunity. Unfortunately, in most cases the deposit is not refundable, unless I can rebook the date again. If the wedding date is within three months the whole amount will have to be paid, as I am very likely to have turned down other bookings for the same date. If you are cancelling in order to reschedule, then hopefully we can just move the date and nothing will be lost.


Q. Do I have to add VAT to your prices?
No. We are careful to restrict the number of weddings we attend. This allows us to ensure a consistently high quality of service to our clients. It also means there is no VAT to pay and the prices you see on our website are the prices you will pay.
