“The cake will be eaten…. The dress packed away…. Your flowers will last for all but one day… and all you will have to remind you of your Special Day will be your Wedding Photographs”!
It’s a sad fact that after months planning and preparation that your wedding day will be over in a blink of a eye… It’s only at this stage that many couples realise just how important their wedding photographs are, and as the years roll by they become more priceless. I find it sad that photography often gets overlooked when a couple plan their wedding, forgetting that their wedding images will be the only thing that they will have left after the day is over.
My passion for photography started at an early age when I was given a camera for my eight birthday. I have been photographing weddings and people for over fifteen years; I absolutely love what I do. I studied photography whilst living in Canada and then on return to the UK went to college here, I joined the SWPP and worked with my mentor Martin Grahame-Dunn to perfect my craft and gain further qualifications. I won the Kent Wedding Photographer of the year in 2012 and have been a short-listed finalist every year since it started. I have also won numerous other awards for my photography. The camera is just an instrument, it is the person behind the lens that makes the magic happen.
I am a firm believer in training and have completed the Aspire Photographic Bespoke Program, I have also trained with Kate Hopewell-Smith, Damien Lovegrove, Brett Harkness as well as other top trainers and each year I invest in my personal development and that of my team, so that we can remain inspired to capture your perfect day.
My style is a fusion of fine art, timeless with a very natural documentary storytelling feel. I like to capture all aspects of your day, so my album packages all include two photographers so that we can tell a complete story from both the bride and grooms side, capturing all the emotions and details as the day unfolds. I never forget that it is your day and as such when it comes to the more formal photos and groups I take direction from you. I want you to be able to enjoy your day and to have time with family and friends and as such I never ask for any longer than 30 minutes alone with you away from your guests.
