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.

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.

Clock Barn Hall wedding photography Godalming | Yveta + Adam

A hot one! That’s probably how best to describe Yveta and Adam’s Clock Barn Hall wedding – temperatures reached almost 30C in the afternoon as the guests enjoyed the sunshine on the lawn at Clock Barn Hall near Godalming.

I started the day with Yveta and her bridesmaids for bridal preparations at the Hog’s Back Hotel Farnham…

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!

Brocket Hall wedding photography | Katy & Dean

Great people, a great venue, and… typical English weather – well two out of three isn’t bad! It didn’t actually rain on Katy & Dean’s wedding day, but it was that classic English mix of overcast skies with a hint of sunshine here and there. The couple would probably prefer wall-to-wall sunshine of course, but from a photographer’s point of view a softer day is not necessarily a bad thing. It means people don’t get hot and sticky, and aren’t dazzled by the sun.
