I live in a small town called Tadley in north Hampshire. Our house is in the woods and looks like a Toblerone! I am married to my wife Zoë, and we have daughter named Eden.
I have always had a passion for photography but never thought I would become a wedding photographer. This all changed when we got married in 2011…
There are lots of stereotypes about wedding photographers out there and when we were planning our own wedding, a lot of these, unfortunately, seemed to be a reality. At the time, I was working in live events as a cameraman and backstage photographer for a production company. So when we were looking for a wedding photographer, I wanted someone to tell our story including all the things that we might not even be aware of, in a documentary style. I definitely didn’t want anyone cheesy or too cliché. And I also wanted them to stay late into the evening, to blend in with the guests and I just couldn’t find anyone I liked that was in our (rather meagre) budget. To cut a long story short, one of the main reasons I started shooting weddings was to provide something that I couldn’t find when I needed it.
