My Philosophy

My take on wedding photography is quite simple: I believe the most engaging, heartfelt and memorable photos are captured when the photographer stands back and lets the scene unfold. A moment needs to be seen, allowed to happen naturally, or not at all. It’s why I operate in the discrete way I do.

I favour the honesty of natural light over flash photography. My cameras are smaller than most so as not to stand out. I shoot less images than many, but think about each one just a little more. I strive to be different, to stand out, and to provide you with a set of beautiful wedding images.

Style & Approach

I want you to understand, and feel completely comfortable and confident in the way I approach wedding photography. My style is not traditional, and I would rather be in possession of a few truly magical images that make me tingle, over a quantity of images I have little connection with. I won’t get a photo of every single guest at your wedding, but I will seek out images that so many eyes on the day will miss.

I’m drawn to emotion, quirks, subtle detail, unique composition and gorgeous light. I like things just as they are, and people being themselves. Anything else just isn’t real. My goal is to provide you with a set of images that perfectly capture the qualities and character of you and your day. These are the images that will provoke emotion and bring back a feeling in the years to come, these are the images you will hold close to your heart. It’s a wonderful feeling when something just clicks, and I’m sure you already know if I’m the right photographer for you. It is what it is.
