I'm a York-based wedding photographer and I love shooting weddings in my beautiful home city (who wouldn't?!) but I'm happy to travel throughout Yorkshire and beyond. I've recently shot weddings in The Lake District, Lancashire, The Midlands and Essex too.
Natural light is my passion and I love relaxed photographs with the odd gently-posed shot mixed in. For the most part, I’ll be in the background, observing and photographing your day as it happens. I want to preserve the real moments between you and your family, your children, friends and guests and of course between you as a couple. A handful of group shots is fine but I don't want them to dominate your day. I'll make it fun! We'll have half an hour together for some beautiful, romantic photographs of you just married. Oh, and I’m nuts about all the little details!
If you are looking for a relaxed and fun approach to your wedding photography then we will work well together. My style is natural and calm. There will be no gimmicks, no elaborate or unrealistic effects; simply beautiful and timeless images that will last a lifetime and will not go out of fashion. My aim is to tell the story of your big day in a relaxed and unobtrusive way to produce beautiful images that you will cherish for years to come.
A pre-wedding/engagement photoshoot is a great idea for so many reasons! It's a chance for us to meet before your wedding day to get to know each other better, have fun and talk about your plans. Overall, it is a great opportunity to get used to being in front of me and my camera so that you are used to it on the day. I know many people feel camera-shy and they find the pre-wedding shoot really helps to put them at ease. We can go wherever you like: somewhere meaningful to you or just somewhere pretty or cool. Natural or urban outdoor settings both work well.
