Qualified wedding photographer
You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
Ansel Adams

Photographs that tell a story


I have been taking photographs since I was a child, winning my first competition at the age of 12 with an image of my 4 year old sister jumping in the air. As a grown up photographer my passion for image making has grown and I have been fortunate enough to have much of my work published in a variety of media including wedding blogs, wedding magazines, websites, and professional literature. I have developed a style that encompasses aspects of both classic and contemporary photography, focussing mostly on story telling mixed with fine art portraiture.

Your wedding photographs should be one of your most lasting memories of possibly the biggest day of your life. For the most part I will be the fly on your wall waiting for intimate, magical, romantic moments. I will hide behind pillars, stand on chairs, lean over balconies, peek through half closed doors, and do whatever it takes to get images of you and your guests enjoying themselves without feeling a camera is following their every move. I will focus on the intimacy between you, capture the love that has brought you to your wedding day, and make you feel truly special for the rest of your lives.

I cater for all types of weddings including traditional church weddings, registry office weddings, pagan weddings, civil partnerships, blessings, and weddings of all religions. I especially love the colour and tradition of Asian weddings, and have experience photographing Sikh weddings.

My equipment helps me make images, but I won’t bore you with a long list of what I have. It is professional quality, extensive, has more than one of everything important, gets lovingly looked after and replaced regularly. I will treat your images with the utmost of respect and make multiple backups of everything I take.

I am constantly striving to improve my art and regularly engage in professional development activities such as mentoring and critique sessions with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, attending trade shows and much more.

Photography may be my passion, but I have a personal life too. I have a beautiful daughter, a wonderful partner who acts as an artistic critic of my work, I have an MSc in Psychology, and I rock climb and scuba dive.

I am based in Sheffield but will travel as far as the job takes me - nationwide and international destination wedding included.

I would love to photograph your wedding, so
