Family portraits, engagement shoots, I'll photograph anything that moves! I absolutely adore photographing couples in love and families. Pre wedding shoots are a brilliant way for us all to get to know each other before the big day. And family shoots any time of year, a great gift for loved ones, or to document your lives as you grow old together.

Top notch wedding photography with all the frills.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do THE COUPLE PHOTOS TAKE ON THE DAY?
On a wedding day, I go with the flow and what the couples want. If you want to hike up Ben Nevis and get the ultimate portrait, then I'm game. In reality though, I tend to do a couple of mini sessions (15-20 mins) on your wedding day. One earlier and one later if there's a nice sunset or you want some evening flash photography. It's your call, I'll do whatever makes you happy.
When do I get to see my images?
5-6 weeks. Peak wedding season is exactly that. Peaky and crazy manic. I put a huge amount of effort and time into editing your images, and I don't like to rush things. Colour grading, white balancing, swapping heads on family pics to make sure no one is blinking, removing the occassional rogue and unwelcome spot on the nose. It all takes time and is worth waiting for.
Do you offer albums?
Absolutely. Once I've shot your wedding I'll send you an email which links through to the client area. There you will be able to order prints, and design your own albums. It's pretty cool actually, your imagination is the only limit, And budget too! The online design software is also really easy to use, just drop in your images and you're away. You'll have your dream album on the coffee table in no time!
What do I wear for our portrait session?
Listen, I'm not expecting anyone to buy a new suit or kinky boots. Wear whatever is you, whatever you feel comfortable in. Let me know if you have something creative in mind, and we'll all work together to create something magical. Otherwise let it all hang out, and I'll find a way to make everyone look awesome regardless. Portrait sessions really are so much fun, one of the best bits of my job.

With over 150 weddings under my ever expanding belt, I have come to learn every wedding is different. However, the requirements of the couples that book me when it comes to the photography, remain largely the same. "Keep it relaxed, nothing too posed, make us look amazing."
If you choose me as your photographer, firstly, you look amazing already. And secondly, I guarantee to do all of these things and more.
I've photographed so many beautiful wedding venues in Norfolk and Suffolk and all across the U.K. From Norwich to Stockholm, London to Manchester, I've been lucky enough to watch and capture so many of you getting married. I've stood in more fields than I can remember. I've layed in bird poop, torn a hamstring, stared at the sun, and been through 27 pairs of shoes. I've seen all the marquees, the tipis, the cowsheds, the merry people, the tears of joy, the crazy uncles, the nannas smashed on bubbly, the best man body popping, the kids losing their minds after demolishing the sweet cart, and Uncle Geoff telling that story that everyone told him not to tell.
I also appreciate that when it comes to photography, many of you don't know what to ask or what to expect. Below is a price guide and some of the most common questions answered. My number one piece of advice is always the same. Aside from excellent imagery, book someone you 'click' with. Rapport for me is so very important. My photography is all about love, happiness and joy, and a reflection of what a wedding day is all about.
If there's anything you can't see here, I'm a fountain of photography knowledge and advice. Ask away! :)
