Hello! Thanks for visiting my site. I love creativity! My job is creative so I shoot very naturally, asking you not to look at the camera (me) and focus on each other. It's hard for me to define my style, but I love vibrant colours, shapes, shadows, highlights and to give you dynamics for both your engagement shoot and your wedding. Using the normal day light, the golden hour, a hopeful sunset and also night time photography which can be very creative and unique.
For me, Engagement Photography goes hand in hand with Wedding Photography. My clients have loved spending time with me, working out some unique and creative locations for their Engagement Shoot across the country. It's such a great time to get to know each other and to give you something so unique. I try my hardest not to shoot the same location I have shot before for another couple, so that each couple takes home something unique to them. Also, because it's not like the wedding, set at a location, we can literally shoot anywhere which makes it so exciting and fun. Clients have taken me all around the country and overseas for their engagement shoot, which really shows what can be achieved. This also gives you time to understand how I shoot as well as get used to the camera, ready for your big day. Your time with me is also there to build trust and confidence.
I have a reportage style to my work, a 'fly on the wall approach' if you will. To keep things fresh and creative, I try to not take 'the easy shot' or the 'obvious' locations at a wedding venue or area. I plan and allocate a good amount of time with you both to fully explore the creative possibilities we may have at your venue, whether in the UK or if you are organising a Destination Wedding.
I started out as a Bournemouth Wedding Photographer 10 years ago and now cover the country as well as Destination Weddings. I said to my self a number of years ago that I don't want to be just any photographer, shooting the same thing, at each wedding week after week. I want to be different and be booked based on you loving photography and wanting something different from the norm. It's really you giving me creative freedom to shoot your day through my eyes and capturing you as naturally as possible. If you love that, and 'get it', then I'm the right photographer for you and we can meet up soon and discuss your big day!
Where your wedding, and indeed my service to you, is all about you and the love you have for each other and your big day, I believe that when booking a wedding photographer in Bournemouth (or further afield), it is about absolutely loving their style, but also understanding and fully embracing their vision for what they want to achieve for their work. Every professional photographer at some stage in their career will decide the style they like and how they want to shoot, as well as what they want to achieve and how to set themselves apart from other photographers work. This is what drives me - giving you something different.
