Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to view my portfolio & consider me for your special day.
My style is about keeping it simple, with no direction or interruption. I believe staying unobtrusive as possible, is the best way in capturing those real moments. That means no contrived imagery, or instruction as to how best a shot should look. As far as looks go, my imagery is a mix of black & white and color. I’ve always loved black & white film, so I try to retain the look & quality in my photos.
A little about myself! I was raised & schooled in England, and studied Photography from an early age, attaining a diploma in photography.
After leaving college I made the decision to combine photography and travel by going to sea as a cruise ship photographer. For 8 years I traveled the globe visiting more countries and continents I can even remember. It’s easier to name the places I didn’t visit.
This took it’s toll, spending 24/7 doing photography, I was burned out, and decided to pursue my other passion, aviation. I took on a position working for United Airlines at London’s Heathrow airport.
During those 3 years I found myself still dabbling in photography and made the decision to pursue it professionally.
It was at this point in my life I moved to California to be closer to my family. Shortly after moving I began working for the Walt Disney company as a photographer. This involved working with Characters and special events. As you can imagine, I had an amazing time at Disney and learned much about its work ethic and why its one of the most recognizable brands in the world. At the same time I was also photographing weddings, knowing some day I would pursue this full time.
Eleven years later I took the leap and became a full time wedding photographer. This is where my story continues, documenting and story telling beautiful weddings.
