Yes is the short answer! Firstly I personally edit the images leaving you with all the beautiful story telling images from your wedding day and then I make a professional judgement whether they will look their best in either colour or black and white. Every image is taken in the highest resolution in colour so we can always go back and make a favourite image of yours to your preferred choice.

I’m known as a documentary wedding photographer and reportage wedding photographer although there are many other terms used to describe the style of photography that I take to capture your day. These include; reportage wedding photography, candid wedding photography, and informal wedding photography, to name just a few. As a documentary wedding photographer I would be capturing your day in an informal and unobtrusive manner catching beautiful moments that occur naturally on your wedding day.

Firstly passion, attention to detail and being with you every step of the way from the first point of contact until the album is safely delivered to you. Secondly, I never treat you as clients but always as a couple, ensuring I deliver to you the very best experience both before, during and after the big day. And thirdly, all the images you receive will be edited and colour corrected to the same standard as in my sample albums and web site.

Yes of course. I’m a firm believer that a few groups of some of the key people at your wedding should be captured. Most couples keep it to between five and eight simple groups so they may enjoy the wedding that they have planned with their guests and not be fixed in front of a camera.

I always ensure the little details that you’ve spent so long planning are recorded. I try and capture them in the context of the day so they can also become a treasured memory.

I like to be relaxed but smart on your wedding day, always wearing a smart shirt and formal trousers and shoes, as I’m aware that I could appear in your video but more importantly I’m at your wedding.

Yes of course. Most couples initially book a digital only package, and then once they have seen all their beautiful images after their wedding they decide on the album style and number of pictures they want to include. I have a unique relationship with one of the UK’s best album manufacturers so can supply to you a virtually limitless amount of options to ensure your album is totally bespoke. A sample selection of my albums can be seen here.

As a reportage wedding photographer my first objective is to record your wedding naturally as it happens, however as a professional wedding photographer I get asked to go all over the UK and Europe so should your venue be new to me I will ensure I arrive early so as to feel comfortable with the surroundings and locate the best backdrops and interesting spaces to take your first formal pictures together and family groups.

I use exclusively Nikon camera equipment and more often than not it’s their latest and best professional gear. I count myself as one of a lucky and privileged few being sponsored by Nikon UK as one of their select ambassadors.

I have three types of insurance; my equipment is insured, I have public liability which is essential for most venues now, and professional indemnity insurance which insures against loss or photographic failure. I do however take every precaution to ensure images are backed up both where I work and on a secure cloud with SmugMug.

Yes, as I’m also known as a destination wedding photographer and have travelled to France, Italy and Israel to photograph weddings abroad. If you are thinking of having a destination wedding please contact me so I can put together a bespoke wedding photography package for you.

I’ve been a member of the SWPP and the MPA (Master Photographer Association) for over 20 years. Whilst many photographers are not, I’m a great believer in them. I’m very proud of the awards I have been given; including winning UK wedding photographer of the year on three separate occasions, and I was the first to receive an Associateship ( akin to two Michelin stars in the restaurant world ) with The MPA as a documentary wedding photographer in the UK.

We always do our best to sit down with you prior to your wedding. My reception is based in Burnham, Bucks. However we can also talk prior via Skype or email, to clarify the schedule of your day and what your expectations are.

As a Nikon Ambassador I exclusively shoot with digital equipment and every image in photographed in full colour. This enables me to edit every image that you will receive fully. The editing involves colour correcting, light enhancing, cropping and conversion to black and white where I feel this aesthetically enhances the overall finish of the image.

I am perhaps best known for my black and white documentary photography and it is something I really love. However, if you would like to see a specific image in black or white, or in its original colour format I am happy to do supply this image for you

Photographic manipulation and retouching of images is not included, I do not ‘alter’ images by cutting and replacing in the editing process to create a ‘new’ image, editing is used to enhance the image that was created in front of the camera. My documentary photography is about capturing people and moments naturally which is reflected in the editing.

I am a firm believer that a few groups of some of the key people at your wedding should be captured. Most couples keep it to between five and eight simple groups so they may enjoy the wedding that they have planned with their guests and not be fixed in front of a camera.

I will spend a little time after the getting ready shots to capture some portraits of the bride and again of the bride and groom after the ceremony. I keep this natural, focusing on the two of you interacting with each other the way you normally would, so you have a few beautiful pictures of the two of you together. As with the groups, I keep this to a minimum length of time, around ten minutes, so that I am not taking you away from your wedding guests.

Great documentary photography tells the individual story of your special day, which is why I always ensure the little details that you’ve spent so long planning are recorded. I try and capture them in the context of the day so they can also become a treasured memory.

Simply, yes, although I am based in Berkshire, I travel all around the UK to photograph weddings, from Cornwall to the Isle of Bute.

Rest assured I make sure all practicalities are covered; I always make sure my car is fully serviced, I check the best route and plan my journey ahead of the day and have a Sat-Nav in the car, and I leave with plenty of time to spare to avoid any traffic delays. I shoot with two high-end professional cameras on the day, and have backup equipment on hand.

I want you as my clients to have the best possible experience from the time you contact me through to the delivery of your images. I know you will be keen to see the photographs from your wedding day as soon as possible. Because of the importance to me of helping you cherish those memories, it may take up to eight weeks for me to edit your wedding photographs (often quicker).

You will be sent a link to your personal on-line slideshow, and after that, depending on your package, an online gallery to select your album pictures or digital download.

If you are having an album as part of your package, I will personally design the album for you from the images you select and then you will have an opportunity to proof check your album electronically before it is printed.

If you booked a digital package and change your mind about an album don’t worry, many couples will come back to me after their wedding day for an album or to mark their anniversary, because they love their photos and want to be able to share them in a beautiful album. I have a unique relationship with one of the UK’s best album manufacturers so can supply to you a virtually limitless amount of options to ensure your album is totally bespoke.
