My relaxed approach essential for natural, story telling wedding pictures

I was an early adopter of the more relaxed documentary style of wedding photography, capturing the essence of the day, with guests looking relaxed, happy and mostly unposed. Clients often say my relaxed approach made them feel totally at ease being center of attention for the day.


Throughout the day I'll be recording all the events as the day unfolds, plus those important small details that made the day uniquely yours. This is photo journalism documenting the whole day in a storybook fashion. You still need those important formal moments captured, along with some creative individual and group portraiture. They'll be time too, normally shortly after the ceremony, when we can all catch our breath and have fun together away from your guests. The style of these shots would have been discussed in advance but there's always room for spontaneity... More often than not, the very best shots are unplanned.


I've always loved working with black & white photos and I'm one of only a handful of wedding photographers in Kent that provides you with a selection of your images in timeless monochrome, essential for those candid shots, plus some quirky vintage Polaroid effects.


Assignments for Kent Weddings start from just £750.

About Me


I love being a wedding photographer, it must be one of the best jobs in the world.


This is all I have done for the last 20 years. I treasure every moment, from the initial consultation, discussing plans, through to capturing and creating special memories through my photography. Recently it was my turn to be in front of the camera, I married Linda on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Grenada. We chose a small intimate ceremony followed by the traditional wedding reception back here in the UK. I enjoyed every single moment... it really is the most wonderful day of your life.


If you want to know a bit more please get in touch. I don't mind answering questions by email initially until you're ready to come and see me. I love showing my work and discussing a couple's wedding plans, so do please come over and have a coffee. We have two adorable and quirky cats, Fleming & Macy that would love to meet you.


Whatever the occasion... wedding, gay marriage, civil partnership, engagement, party, event or just a photo shoot - I'd really love to be part of your special day
