Storytelling photography and a relaxed, friendly approach

As a professional Surrey wedding photographer and portrait photographer for more than fifteen 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.

I am based just south of Guildford in Surrey. I photograph not only Surrey weddings but also in Hampshire, Sussex, London and throughout the UK.

I am also happy to travel if you are getting married overseas. Over the past 15 years I have photographed many destination weddings in the Caribbean, USA, Mexico, Europe and the Middle East.

Get in touch to find out how I can help you record some special memories.

Surrey church wedding – Lydia & Ian

A Surrey church wedding is always a pleasure to photograph. Although I don’t mind travelling to shoot weddings, this one was very close to home, being in Shalford and Cranleigh which are only a few miles away.

I could tell when I first met Lydia & Ian that they were the kind of people who pretty much take everything in their stride and enjoy life to the full – which was just as well as their wedding day was one of the wettest we’ve had this summer.

Elvetham Winter Wedding | Maddie & Daniel

With a winter wedding you always wonder if the weather is going to be on your side or not – fortunately for Maddie & Daniel’s special day at The Elvetham in Hampshire the temperature was an unseasonably warm 15C and the sun shone from a clear blue sky most of the time! Some clouds rolled in later on, just in time to give me a dramatic sky for some spectacular sunset pictures – quite handy that!

African wedding in the Dubai desert

When I was asked to photograph an African wedding in the Dubai desert, I was (not surprisingly) happy to oblige! I enjoy photographing weddings whatever the location – but I love travelling, and shooting a different style of wedding is always fun!

Wimbledon Church Wedding Photos | Kim & Austin

Many congratulations to Kim & Austin, who were married at the Church of Christ The King in Wimbledon Park a couple of Saturdays ago. When I met Kim and Austin last September to chat about their wedding plans I could tell that they were a relaxed and fun couple. I had a feeling that their wedding day would be equally unfussy – and so it proved to be.

Park Hyatt Dubai wedding in the Palm Garden

Park Hyatt Dubai wedding photos

The Park Hyatt in Dubai is a great venue for a wedding – located next to the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club in the heart of the city, but quiet and secluded. My clients, who live in Dubai, chose it as the location for their Christian wedding ceremony and reception, a couple of days after their spectacular African ceremony in the desert.

Brympton Somerset wedding | John & Jason

If I had to pick one word to sum up this wedding I think it would be “joyful”. Weddings are often stressful affairs – there is so much to organise ahead of the big day, and sometimes this carries over into the day itself – but John and Jason and their families and friends sailed through it all very happily, and a hugely enjoyable time was had by all.
