The life of an editorial photographer is a fantastic one. I have travelled all over the world to cover stories, met amazing people, and often watched and photographed as history unfurled itself in front of my lens. I worked as a freelance photographer for The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday and other, international, publications. I don’t miss it, and my 30 years of experience prepared me for anything and everything that can happen as a wedding photographer! However, even after 200 weddings, there are always surprises!
You can see a selection of my editorial work on the story telling page.
My philosophy is empathy: "the ability to understand and share the feelings of another." It’s your day, not mine, and I am there to record and to provide the memories for you, in the years to come, of what a fantastic time you had, the emotions you felt, the tears you cried and the laughter you laughed. I want my photographs to be a mirror to the reality of your day.
I think meeting up for a chat about your wedding is important - even if it’s only via Skype or FaceTime. So please get in touch to see if I am available on your wedding date, and to arrange a meet up.
