WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SURREY AND BERKSHIRE
Congratulations on your engagement, let the excitement begin!
I am a Surrey and Berkshire wedding photographer, established in 2005 and proud to have been entrusted to document the wedding day of over 500 happy couples, that’s a lot of weddings.
Wedding photography is exciting! Meeting new couples, each with their own story to tell and then being given the opportunity to record the raw emotion and excitement of their wedding day. The funny moments, the tears and everything in between, there really is no other occasion when these heightened emotions are felt in such abundance.
My approach to wedding photography is story telling meets creative and natural looking bride and groom portraits. 90% of my day is documenting those fleeting moments, the story of your day, the real moments as they happen, those moments that can’t be scripted. 10% of your day is for creating beautiful bride and groom portraits, there are no awkward poses, just natural looking and timeless images. I understand that it’s your wedding day and should be spent with your loved ones, family and friends. If this sounds like your kind of wedding day, please click here to view my wedding gallery and here to view the services I can provide you with on your special day.
My photography journey in 2005. I spent a year second shooting for an award winning studio and completing one to one mentoring with one of the countries leading wedding photographers, I then photographed my first solo wedding. Since then I have been privileged to photograph weddings throughout the UK and abroad, gaining valuable experience and expertise. I work calmly and professionally and focus on the fact that this is your special day.
As a Surrey based wedding photographer, I am very familiar with some of the finest wedding venues Surrey has to offer, Great Fosters, Coworth Park, Pennyhill Park, Loseley Park and Botleys Mansion – to name a few. I have also photographed weddings throughout London and the South East, from The Dorchester, London; Four Seasons, Hampshire; Danesfield House, Berkshire; Hampton Court Palace and further afield in Ibiza, Dubai, Greece and not forgetting Scotland too! If you are considering a wedding at one of these venues, please do get in touch.
I was lucky to have my own family in 2007 with the arrival of my son, soon followed by my daughter, and appreciate the importance of family photography. From newborn photography through to complete generations of a family in one picture – how incredible to have such a amazing visual record of your family tree. I provide newborn photography from my studio in Windlesham, Surrey or from the comfort of your home, I appreciate that home is often where you want to be in those first few early weeks. Newborn photography styles range from the cute curled up posed images through to relaxed images documenting the natural interaction between you and your newborn.
Children’s portrait photography and family photography sessions I prefer to complete on location. Locations can range from a local park, place of interest, home or beach, pretty much anywhere you and your family feel most comfortable. During your photography session I will take a selection of relaxed family groups but also individual images of your family members caught in the moment. This approach works particularly well with young children who are happiest being able to run free. With the popularity of “selfies” I find older children only too willing to be guided into a pose emulating the fashion magazines or blog sites they frequent.
With social media becoming all the more important for networking for work and socially, far more importance is being given to creating that great first impression. I can provide head shots for LinkedIn and dating websites, with advice given on what to wear and most suitable backdrop for your picture. For those wanting to look their very best, I have access professional hair and make up artists available on the day who can talk through the look you would like to achieve.
After 10 years of photography I remain truly passionate about my work. I continue to develop my craft and add new skills and techniques to my work; from the latest technology to the art of photoshop, you never stop learning in an industry which is always evolving.
