I’m Here To Tell Your Story

Hate posing for photos? Me too.

So you can trust me when I say that I’m never going to make you spend hours of your wedding day posing for endless unnecessary shots with extended family members. That’s not a celebration!

I don’t pose or stage photos - I discover them naturally as I tell the story of your day. I work in a relaxed, candid style with an emphasis on documentary-style photography. The vast majority of the photos will be unposed. Of course, I’m more than happy to shoot any posed pictures you might like throughout the day - but rest assured, I won’t overload your wedding with requests to form a group (or a human pyramid!).

Spending time with your loved ones and sharing this wonderful experience is the best part of the day. I’ll make sure that any formal photos are taken quickly and efficiently, so that you can go and do exactly that.

Leave the photography to me. I’ll tell your story from start to finish without ever breaking the flow of your day.

Here’s my photography philosophy.

I want you to enjoy every single minute.

In my 15 years shooting informal wedding photography in Walthamstow and beyond, I’ve realised something important. Taking great shots is only half the job of a wedding photographer. The other half is people skills. Whether it’s calming pre-speech jitters, bonding with the bride and groom or making sure everyone is relaxed and comfortable during the group shots, you need great people skills to create great photos.

Because in the end, it’s the people around you that will make your day memorable. One of the main reasons I love shooting weddings is that you get to see those people at their very best. Love, laughter, pride and celebration. Who wouldn’t want to document all that happiness?

When you receive your pictures, my aim is for you to relive all those wonderful memories again, as well as experience a few moments you may have missed along the way.

I offer a number of wedding photography packages in Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent, East London and beyond. Check out the details below, find the right fit for you and let’s get started on creating those memories!

  • Pre-Wedding Shoot - £300
    We’ll spend the day together taking pictures (I usually suggest about three hours, but I’m flexible and won’t set a time limit). This is the perfect chance to get to know each other before the wedding day. You can see how I work and I can get a sense of your personalities and preferences. London and its surrounding boroughs have dozens of great locations to choose from - we can arrange somewhere you feel comfortable or discover somewhere new and exciting. This session can be just the two of you, or you can bring your pets/kids along to create some fun family memories together!
  • Second Photographer - £450
    Two photographers capturing each and every moment of your wedding.
