Storytelling photography and a relaxed, friendly approach
As a professional Surrey wedding photographer and portrait photographer for more than 17 years, I bring a wealth of expertise and experience to your wedding or family photo shoot.
My aim is always to make you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Wedding clients often comment on my unobtrusive style, and portrait clients appreciate my unfussy and friendly approach. When photographing a wedding, most of the time I am not setting up photos but simply capturing what’s happening, looking for those special moments that tell the story of the day.
Guildford Surrey wedding photographer
I am based just south of Guildford in Surrey. I photograph not only Surrey weddings but also events in Hampshire, Sussex, Berkshire, London and throughout the UK. In the past 17 years I have photographed all kinds of weddings – civil ceremonies, Christian church weddings, humanist, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh weddings to name but a few!
I am also happy to travel if you are getting married overseas. Since 2003 I have photographed many destination weddings in the Caribbean, USA, Mexico, Europe and the Middle East.
Guildford portrait photographer
I really enjoy shooting portrait sessions – whether it’s a family reunion with three generations, or a couple who have just got engaged, or even a simple set of headshots for social media or your website.
I come to you, or we can meet at a suitable location such as a park or beauty spot. Portrait shoots are quick and easy – and lots of fun!

About my photography services
From the Blog
Anna & Adam’s wedding was quite memorable for a variety of reasons. First of all, it’s always a pleasure to shoot in the Oxfordshire countryside – all those honey-coloured stone villages and small country churches.
Lucy and James chose South Lodge Horsham for their wedding – it’s a classic country hotel set in the South Downs near Horsham, and a really nice venue for any celebration.
When I was asked by my colleague Ryan Browne to help out with covering Bobbie and Prav’s wedding in Cheshire, I was happy to say “yes”.
Engagement shoots are always lots of fun – I get more time with the couple than I do on a busy wedding day, and they are relaxed and happy and easy to work with.So it was with Aaron and Leslie’s shoot, which we did at various locations around London just before New Year.
Gemma and Simon were blessed with perfect weather for their wedding day – not a cloud in the sky! With autumn weddings you never know your luck – the day before it had been pouring with rain…
