This is the first chapter of the rest of your lives together. A day fuelled by drama and emotion. Love. Ecstasy. Anxiousness. Anticipation. Friendship. It’s all there, raw and uncut. Capturing moments and emotions and then shaping them into a story. That’s what I do. That’s what I’ve been doing for the last ten years. It’s a passion that I care deeply about, and it’s taken me all over the country from Durham to Devon, from London to Lancashire. From the documenting of each unique story, to the relationship that I build with each couple who have chosen me to capture their story, it’s all such a privilege. And not least because every single story that I see reminds me of the importance of the woman in my life and the family we share together.

Reportage or documentary wedding photography is a style that has evolved since the emergence of the digital camera. In essence, it is a natural progression from the traditional type of pictures taken at a wedding where a film photographer would have been severely limited by the number of pictures that he/she could take in a day. After all, there are only so many rolls of film that one could take to a wedding and thus, experimentation with light/angles/subjects would not have been at the top of the list of priorities.

With this seemingly limitless number of pictures a documentary wedding photography can take, it is now possible to capture those moments that you’re least expecting to even happen, let alone be photographed; those natural wedding pictures that add up to the real story of the day. So it’s not just about getting ‘faces in a crowd’ but shots that record the emotion and atmosphere of the day.

‘The wedding should not be about the photography, the photography should be about the wedding.’
