About

I love photographing weddings, whether close to my home in the North West, Nationally or Internationally.

The opportunity to capture the love, beauty, drama and overwhelming emotion of the most special day in your life is a responsibility I take seriously.

My background is in fashion. That gave me an understanding of how to capture dynamic and striking images and I have taken that experience into my weddings work. Knowing when and how to capture that defining moment is an art and my use of flattering lighting and my skill in post-production ensures you get images you’ll cherish forever.

This is your day and I realise that in many cases it will be your first experience of dealing with a photographer. But my relaxed style will put you at ease.

PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR AWARD

Being named Photographer of the Year by the Guild of Photographers was a great honour and a fantastic award to be presented with. It is voted for by the Guild of Photographers’ Panel and was a validation of all my hard work and dedication to photography in and around Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire and beyond.

To win I had to submit three images every month for a year. The prize is meant to reward consistency as well as outstanding images. The Guild then asked me to become a panel member for a few years to mentor and train newer photographers, as well as judge the competition for future award winners.

I began taking photographs in 2002 when I bought my brother’s old camera. After a year of capturing images of animals and landscapes I moved into fashion and studio work. Five years later, I began to accept weddings – they are now my passion.

Recently I have begun to combine my love of wedding photography and fashion with editorial shoots, such as this one.

I also love to travel. My time on safari in Kenya, in Cuba and on the Inca Trail allowed me to capture some incredible images.
