Hopes, dreams, love, life and adventure
I’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings in many corners of this beautiful earth. I’ve met people of many backgrounds and religions and made lasting friendships with those who I’ve photographed. I feel like I’ve lived their weddings with them and it was an absolute joy each and every time.
I have the same goals for you and your wedding. I want it to be beautiful, heartwarming, funny and above all, a wonderful adventure and the start of an incredible journey. I want to get into the heart and soul of it and produce images that will take you back there, to create important and meaningful photographs that will be part of your legacy. Images that don’t just show what your wedding looked like, but what it felt like.

Storytelling images that will make you smile, laugh and cry for years to come.
Emotive, Creative, Documentary, Fun, Modern, Different.
It's not good enough to just be there with a camera. I start early in the day so that I can really engage with what's going on. Most of the photographs I produce will be documentary in style. This means that I'll be capturing real, authentic moments for you as they unfold. My aim is to produce photos that go a little deeper than most, and a set of images that can tell the story of your day.
A creative wedding photographer
Each and every wedding is different and I hope to represent each couple in a unique and creative way. Its totally possible to be creative whilst shooting in a documentary style, looking for different points of view and perspectives. I'll work with you to produce some creative portraits too, but this is only a small part of what I do.
Documentary wedding photography
Documentary, photojournalism, reportage. Call it what you will, but the essence of the approach remains the same. I employ a combination of photographic skills, empathy and patience to truly represent the heart and soul of your wedding day. Real people, real moments.
Fun, Modern and Different
My overall approach is professional but informal. I'm really easy to get on with and make an effort to engage with the wedding and talk to guests. I'll hide in plain sight and get into the middle of the action in order to give you images which are both fun and modern, and will give a feeling of being there. I really love to shoot weddings that are non traditional, fun and unique.
Liverpool Wedding Photography // UK // Destination
Number 1 Wedding Photographer in the UK 2016, 2017, 2018 (WPS and Fearless Photographers) Listed in the top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World 2016 (Fearless Photographers)
My style is mostly documentary and I like to blend into the wedding day as if I were just another guest. This really helps me to get right into the heart and soul of your wedding and create images for you that will have you laughing and crying for years to come. I like to work creatively, ensuring that your wedding photos will be artistic and different. I pride myself on being able to get the images you’ll love without bossing you about, taking ages for portraits or asking you to look at the camera.
14 Years of Experience and over 500 very happy clients
Whilst I’m one of many million wedding photographers in Liverpool, you’ll see from my blog that I’ve covered weddings in Thailand, Spain, Poland, Iceland, France, Portugal, Ireland and a whole lot of other brilliant wedding venues up and down the UK.
I love to be part of weddings that are unique and different and focus on the celebration. We live in exciting times when more and more couples are making bold and brave choices in their wedding planning. Weddings can be stuffy affairs, no longer. Humanist weddings, barn weddings and tipi weddings are paving the way, and ‘relaxed’, ‘natural’ and ‘fun’ are current buzzwords in the wedding photography world. I’ve been lucky enough to witness weddings that focused on enjoyment, family and friends and the great outdoors. I truly believe that the best photographs come about as a result of the photographer being able to blend into the scene, so with an unobtrusive documentary approach, I’m able to spend more time on the images that will matter to you and your family in years to come.
Wedding Photography anywhere in the World!
Wedding themes reflect the personality of the couple from the venue and location, to the music, to the food on offer. Whilst I’m based in the North West of England and have shot at most Liverpool Wedding venues, I’m happy to travel anywhere in the world if you like my work!
