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.

London Hindu wedding: Nina & Ryan at IOD Pall Mall SW1

I was delighted to help my colleague Steve Shipman photograph Nina and Ryan’s London wedding at the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall recently.

I’m sometimes asked “what happens if you are unable to photograph our wedding for some reason?”

The answer is that I belong to a network of photographers who all help each other out if any of us needs it. It’s a good system, as in most cases there is someone available who can cover, even at short notice, which gives everybody peace of mind.

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.

I will confess to being a little nervous about shooting this wedding, as both Paul and Layla are very into photography, and were looking for something out of the ordinary. But I needn’t have worried – Paul and Layla were relaxed, fun and very easy to work with!

The ceremony was at Banbury Register Office, and the reception in the grounds of parents’ house in the beautiful Cotswolds village of Marston St. Lawrence.
