My Style

My style is relaxed, I don’t interfere with the running of your day. Instead I take a documentary, reportage approach, blending into the background.

I strive to capture those special moments as they unfold leaving you with timeless natural wedding images that I hope you will treasure for many years to come.

I edit my pictures with an aim to stand the test of time. Forget the latest photography trends that will date very quickly instead I favour keeping colours and skin tones looking the way they should, beautiful and elegant.


Your looking for wedding photo’s that tell your beautiful story exactly how it happened. Not staged, not posed just a true record of your day.  Capturing the emotion and spirit of your wedding, laughter, tears and all.

You want a photographer that will make you feel at ease, spending as little time as possible capturing the mandatory family formals. Allowing you to spend more time with your guests enjoying your day.

Don’t worry if your not good in front of the camera, for the couple portraits I never make you feel uncomfortable. Instead I try to get you to interact with each other, that way your images won’t ever look forced or unnatural.

Deciding on your wedding photographer is a very important decision so I hope by seeing my wedding photography portfolio that you will find something that reaches out to you.

Perhaps it’s a picture of an emotional bride as her father walks her down the aisle or guests laughing at the best mans speech. Maybe it’s just the natural looking portraits that I take. Whatever it is I want my work to relate to you and your wedding.


My Somerset wedding photographer business was set up after perfecting my craft and initially capturing weddings for friends. I’ve spent two years at university studying professional photography and also had the privilege to train and work with some of the best wedding photographers in the industry.

Since then I have photographed many more weddings working in all types of venues and conditions. From dark churches to light converted barns. Sunny weddings, rainy weddings I’ve pretty much done them all so it really doesn’t matter where your getting married.

Your wedding

I always take great honour in being asked to photograph any wedding no matter how big or small, every wedding is special. It doesn’t matter if you are having a traditional wedding or pulling out all the stops to make your wedding the most fun and unusual. I would love to hear from you.

As a Bristol wedding photographer I tend to work with couples all over the South West, photographing weddings not only in Bristol but Bath, Somerset and Gloucestershire. I do love to travel though so if you are getting married anywhere in the UK or abroad please just ask!
