Choosing a professional Lake District photographer to capture the images of one of the most memorable days of your life is one of the most important wedding decisions you will make.


It’s an honour for me to be involved and my aim is to make your day and your memories as special as they can be by providing you with an unobtrusive and professional wedding photography service.

I want to tell the story of your day, the real stuff that happens. The emotions, the quirks and craziness of you and your guests, the unplanned, unscripted parts I know you’ll look back on and love!

I have gained a wealth of experience over more than 18 years’ as a professional Lake District photographer. I have covered over 1300 weddings in all the varied, and sometimes exciting weather that the Lake District has to offer. In the last few years I’ve shot in excess of 75 weddings per year but in the last couple of years I'm now limiting this 65 per year.

I want you to feel comfortable while I’m taking pictures. That’s why, before the big day, I try to get to know you as a couple. During wedding days I observe so that in my images I will reflect the personalities of you and your friends in a creative way. I will capture all of the little details and touches that you have worked so hard to create, from the cake to the dress, the flowers to the favours.

Should you wish to travel away from your reception venue to capture some of my signiture Lake District landscape wedding shots, then we’ll ensure the timings for this have been designed into your day. I know this area well and can suggest some suitable locations that can result in some unique and stunning photography. I'm also a registered CAA drone pilot, so utilising the latest DJI drone technology, If the conditions and situation is suitable, we can launch the drone and capture some additional, dramatic and very unique shots.

I will blend in with your guests and work around your schedule for the day. If you wish, you will barely notice I’m there. I know that often months - and sometimes years - of preparation and hard work has gone into planning your wedding day and it is so important for you to take the time to relax, enjoy and experience what will come to be one of the most memorable days of your life.

I offer a range of photography packages from the digital only, through to my Exclusive Album choices. All of my photography packages include a password-protected viewing gallery where all of your edited images can be downloaded directly in high resolution. They will have no reduction in quality and no watermarking so they are truly yours to keep and share.

This is your day and you should be able to enjoy it, your way. I hope you love every minute!

Reportage Photography - Telling the story of your day.

It's not just about the award winning wedding portraits or the dramatic landscape wedding shots, as a photographer my role is to observe and capture the story of your wedding day with images, 80% of my wedding day will be wandering the space looking for those special, humorous, intimate moments that’ll help tell the story of your wedding. 

I adore moments where the true personalities of people shine, the laughter, the looks, the little mannerisms that make us the unique people that we are. There are always going to be the times when I offer a little more guidance to enable us to capture those wonderful shots that may end up framed in your house but I’m not there to turn you into mannequins, the guidance I offer will be minimal and I’d like to believe that my calming manor in which I go about this will bring relaxed, natural looking images that you’ll love. But most of all, I want the connection between you, your friends and you families to shine though with the candid and reportage side of my wedding photography.

It is important for me to work quickly and efficiently to capture all those special formal shots you want – but reportage photography is the perfect way of telling your story on this most important of days. That’s why a big part of my role will be taking lots of images in a documentary style.

What is reportage photography? It is about capturing the beauty of your wedding in a genuine, candid and authentic way. It is a hands-off approach, focusing on letting you and your guests relax so that you don’t even realise that photographs are being taken.

After many years of working in the wedding industry and honing my skills, I pride myself on being an unobtrusive photographer, ensuring that I build a great rapport with you and your guests.

By using the latest Sony Mirrorless professional camera systems, which are small and very quiet, and by dressing smartly, I am able to blend in to catch those key moments that make a wedding so special.

I think this is so important – you’ll see all the compelling moments throughout your day, including lots that you may have missed at the time. This is a way of telling a genuine story through emotion and natural composition.
