Put your feet up & have a explore...
I have been very fortunate in my career as a photographer to not only have travelled the world, but I’m extremely proud of the fact that I have been chosen as a Wedding Photographer and Wedding Videographer by so many Bride and Grooms, capturing some incredible weddings.
This is my Blog, my journal and my way of offering advice to people who may need it.
So grab a glass of wine or a coffee and please take a long look around the photography blog.
On Saturday 4th May 2019, I photographed the wedding of Carrie-Anne Ellis and Michael Pedrini The Lion Quays Hotel in Shropshire.
A gorgeous sunny fun filled, relaxed and entertaining day that set the scene for what was the perfect Star Wars themed wedding.
Naomi and Dave came to me for a father daughter photoshoot.
Choosing a first dance song can be stressful, but here is a list that can help you in your search to find your perfect song.
I was booked by Jamie and George to capture their wedding at the Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens, Birmingham. A gorgeous period wedding venue full of character and elegance.
Jamie and George got married in a small intimate ceremony witnessed by their nearest and dearest family and friends.
A day full of fun, laughter, smiles and happy tears.
What makes the best wedding photos?
Well, this is something that i can’t pinpoint when it comes to a persons specific taste and people will have different opinions on what makes the best photos. For instance, I have shot some of my best work and couldn’t wait to show the photos to my clients, but when i showed them they preferred images that i wouldn’t consider my absolute best when it came down to technical and creative ability.
Black and white wedding photography, some people love it, some people not so much and other don’t know the difference between colour and black and white.
is a specialised form of photography that encompasses many different factors that surround a wedding day. Occasionally, photographers will be hired to capture photographs of the couple before marriage such as engagement sessions as well as the coverage of the wedding day and wedding reception.
Faye and Clive Givans got married at the St Alphege Church in Solihull, Birmingham.
Faye hired me as their wedding videographer two weeks before her wedding and i knew from the moment i spoke with her that it was going to be an amazing day.
I arrived at her house for the morning to loud reggae music blaring, it sounded absolutely amazing, everyone in high spirits, the champagne in full flow and hair and make up being done.
When you think of a winter, you think cold, wet and miserable.
But, on the 1st December 2018, i was hired to shoot video for the wedding of Maddi & Rikki Smith although it was cold and wet, it was anything but miserable.
Maddi booked me a few days before the wedding, it was that short notice i couldn’t meet with her or Rikki due to schedules, but we spoke on the phone and come up with a plan for her wedding video.
On Saturday 22nd December 2018, Kial & Amy Jackson gave me the absolute privilege of capturing their wedding photos at the Kings Court Hotel in Redditch.
It was a beautiful day at the Redditch wedding venue and a day filled with emotion, fun and lots of laughter.
Jess and Kurt came to my studio to have a couples portrait photography session.
We thought we would do a mixture of styles for this young couple including some light and airy, natural candid shots to more dramatic glamour style photography where i posed the couple to look and feel more editorial.
As a professional photographer, I hear all sorts of issues people have with their bodies and it astounds me because they don’t know how beautiful or handsome they actually are, they just don’t see it yet or have never been photographed by a professional who can help them see beauty rather than flaws.
Wedding Photography is no easy subject and speaking to potential wedding photographers can be quite daunting, especially if you haven’t spoken to one before and don’t really know what to ask.
Why hire a professional photographer for the biggest day of your life?

Wedding photography is much more than just having a nice camera or taking a lot of pictures. The goal of this article is to help prevent you from hiring the wrong photographer, or even worse, “Uncle Frank.”
