90% of my approach to weddings is journalism and storytelling. My training & skills, enable me to capture decisive moments, position myself in the right place at the right time whilst making the most of whats happening in front of me.  Creatively documenting the wedding day without any manufacturing, fabricating or directing, except during the portrait sessions, creates photos with stronger emotional ties.

I find my way of covering a wedding in a candid, documentary style quietly captures the real moments as they happen for the bride and groom. Using images to tell the story of the wedding day enables me to see more of a natural, relaxed view of the relationships between family and friends, capturing all the personality of your big day.

Bio

I've always had a creative eye, even as a small boy, constantly painting, drawing and taking pictures. After school I went straight on to Art School and studied Graphic Design. I completed the 2 year course and then decided (much to my father’s frustration) I didn't want to pursue that particular artistic path. Instead I decided to study Photography because this subject was touched on during my design course. I enrolled on a part-time A level photography course and this is where I really fell in love with the art form.

After my exams I was accepted from a vast selection of candidates to study photography at Newcastle School of Art & Design where I studied full time for 2 years and finally graduated with a Higher National Diploma.  It was there I received my first award from the NEPA (North East Press Awards) for best student photography. My photographic career continued shortly afterwards as a Trainee Press Photographer and over the years moved up to Senior Photographer within the Trinity Mirror group at the Newcastle Evening Chronicle.

A large proportion of my career has been working as a Newspaper Photojournalist for regional and national newspapers in the UK. I have gained over 20 years experience within the photographic industry and for some years now specialising as a full time Wedding Photographer. It was always going to be a natural progression for me to approach weddings creatively and in the same way as all my press experience has taught me, with storytelling.

By naturally capturing the joy, happiness, fun, humour, emotion, and detail of your day as they happen, I aim to create memories that you will cherish for a lifetime and generations to come.
