I am a wedding, events and portrait photographer based in Woking. I offer creative wedding photography and portrait photography in Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Kent, London and throughout the UK. In the last ten years, I have photographed over 300 weddings. These weddings have been very diverse in terms of size and cultural differences. I believe most people are looking for a range of skills in a wedding photographer. They require documentary coverage, classic posing, organization and people skills, plus the ability to inject some fun and quirky shots into the day. My portfolio and blog are designed to demonstrate all these areas.
Each wedding has a planning session at the venue where I look for special locations under all weather conditions. I often make use of those spare moments to get extra couple shots, the ten minutes while the guests are sitting down or a few minutes after the wedding breakfast. Different light conditions add variation to the final set of photographs. The planning session at the venue is vitally important as talking face to face at the venue enables me to discuss problems and possibilities in a way that is not possible on the phone.
Often the wedding itinerary gets tweaked slightly after a photography planning session. I enjoy catching the storytelling moments, but I also want to shoot the couple in a flattering way. The bride; she spends hours in hair and makeup and is wearing a beautiful dress. Therefore, a series of elegant, timeless images adds to the story of the day.
I specialise in lifestyle portrait photography of babies, children and adults. All photo shoots have no time constraints, and I only take one booking a day. Flexibility is the key, and I am happy to travel to your location, or you can come to me. Surrey has so many great places to explore, and I am always happy to photograph in different locations. All the photo shoots are very spontaneous and relaxed affairs.
