I’m a passionate photographer and always have been since the tender age of five when I was presented with a box brownie and caught by mum photographing my brother. When I’m away from my camera I can be found listening to music on my now trendy record player, sipping a freshly ground coffee or hanging out at a small venue listening to live music.

I was really proud to become the first UK photographer to be awarded a double fellowship for documentary photography ( akin to 3 michelin stars in the restaurant world ). Developing my own recognisable documentary wedding photography style with beautiful Black and White images with an emphasis on observation; capturing storytelling moments that are full of emotion, that tell the unique story of your perfect day.

Following one of my weddings I was lucky enough to be invited to Jimmy Choo’s London store to photograph him with his beautiful couture shoes, and the portrait is now held at National Portrait Gallery archive in London. I have been asked to publish my images and articles in many of the top wedding and photography publications as well as wedding blogs and photography websites.

Professionally, I have led the London Portrait Group between 2004 and 2009 and have had successful exhibitions at Windsor’s Manley’s Art Gallery in conjunction with Rhubarb and Custard, Tapestry in Soho and with The Hope Foundation my photographers were exhibited at the Virgin Money Lounge in London and most recently I’ve had an exhibition to raise awareness for Alzheimer’s at the oldest Knightsbridge Gallery, Andipa, which got world-wide media attention.

I love to travel of the beaten track with camera in hand photographing people stories in India, Myanmar and Vietnam. Family is so important to me with three great sons and a wonderful mum and nothing can beat spending time with them.
