I’m a full-time wedding & portrait photographer and I’ve worked in the wedding industry for over ten years. I photograph beautiful weddings in Dorset, Somerset & across the UK, as well as destination weddings in Europe.
I’ve photographed many gorgeous weddings, from grand country house celebrations to informal country weddings in fields. Every wedding day is beautiful, every love story is wonderful, & it’s my job as wedding photographer to document your amazing day with truth and beauty.
With timeless & emotive documentary wedding photography, we’ll create an amazing record of the most important day of your lives. And, as I use the highest quality photographic and lighting equipment, you’ll have stunning images to treasure no matter what the weather.
