I’m an award-winning wedding photographer working across Surrey, the UK and abroad. My distinctive approach combines artistic reportage with a natural and contemporary style of portraiture. I work to visually capture all of the emotion and spontaneous moments of your special day in a relaxed and unobtrusive manner, creating beautiful fine art images that you'll admire forever. With an extensive background in shooting documentaries for broadcast television and cinematography, I've developed my own unique style to document memories that reflect your personalities in the most creative and artistic way I can.
Telling stories through the lens with my cameras is what I do best, and I’m delighted to be recognised as one of the UK’s Top 50 Wedding Photographers for two years running. Being highly regarded in my field of expertise fills me with immense pride. I'm always grateful for the accolades and wonderful exposure I receive for my photography services in and around Surrey.
With over 500 weddings under my belt, I love my job and take immense pride in my work.
My personable approach quickly puts guests at ease as I'm taking pictures of them, enabling them to focus on the wedding. Relaxed people who are comfortable with the camera make for the best subjects, which is why this natural reportage approach produces gorgeous unstaged images, packed with personality. I pride myself on being unobtrusive but still managing to get right in the thick of the action at the decisive moment to capture the perfect frame. I'll always be friendly and approachable, enabling me to fit in and document the details as they unfold without getting in the way.

My work regularly features in national magazines and numerous international wedding blogs across the web so please have a click around below to get a flavour of how I work. I'm delighted that I have a plethora of five-star reviews from happy couples - you can view these right here.
Surrey is a picturesque, characteristic place to photograph with its incredible variety of venues such as Wotton House, Great Fosters, and Botleys Mansion. It is the perfect backdrop for a love story with its romantic country inns, impressive stately homes, and stunning areas of natural beauty. These include the rolly Surrey Hills, the gorgeous leafy suburbs, and idyllic towns and villages. Offering photography services within this county is mostly what I'm known for, however, I love to travel further afield from Surrey and the UK to document destinations abroad.
My key aim is to create beautiful images of your big day for you to treasure forever. Whether it's a rustic barn in Guildford or an elegant castle in Farnham, I have covered most venues within the county, so you're in safe hands! The photographic memories that I document will tell the epic story of your wedding day with an abundance of moving images for you to absorb, keep and enjoy.

As a wedding photographer in Surrey, I feel it’s important to get to know you as a couple as you tie the knot. I want to understand your family structure to introduce myself to them and put them at ease in front of the lens. You are the epicentre of the day and the key component; however, your Surrey wedding is also about your nearest and dearest who come to celebrate with you on this very important day.
As you can see from my Surrey picture galleries, I understand how artistic and creative wedding images are brought to light. I'll click the shutter at just the right moment. Whether it's the sun setting over the glorious Surrey Hills, or the magical snow as it twinkles on the ground, I take photos that retain their artistic and creative flair. I'll preserve these beautiful moments as meaningful freeze frames for decades in the family wedding album.
The couple, the venue, the dress, the guests - every day is different. No two days are the same, so I can tailor my packages to meet your specific needs. Bespoke packages can include an engagement shoot, and a range of beautiful handmade Italian leather albums to showcase your treasured memories. From the excitement as you walk down the aisle to the tears of joy as you exchange your vows during the ceremony, I'll be there to ensure you never miss a moment.
Each photography package includes coverage from the bridal preparations until after the first dance. You'll be able to view a stunning and intuitive photo gallery that you can share with your friends and family. Here you can download your high-resolution digital images and purchase prints for the wall with various framing options to complement your colour and black and white photographs.
In addition to working in the South, I travel nationwide and abroad. You can see lots of the areas that I've had the pleasure of working in here.
