Capturing beautiful wedding stories throughout cornwall and devon 

 

 

I am primarily a documentary wedding photographer who believes in capturing the heart and soul of you Wedding day. With all the emotions, the laughter and tears, all those little things that make your day truly unique. Photographs that will stand the test of time, wedding photographs that you will look back on in many years to come and be able to relieve those emotions.

  • I try not to work to shot lists because it can break up the natural flow of your day and hinder me from capturing those beautiful candid moments. After all it's your day and I will be there to photograph you enjoying the party with all the people that are close to your hearts. This doesn't mean I won't give you a little direction when it comes to getting the best out of those iconic pictures of you both.

  • 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder'. I don't believe in such a thing as perfection and there will be things on your wedding day that won't be perfect. Some things will just be out of your control, the rain maybe coming in side ways and the best mans speech might be just too controversial but you just have to roll with it. It's moments like these that define your day and in the years to come you can look back on and laugh. Take this image of Harriet and Ben's wedding in Newquay. Storm 'Brian' was hitting Cornwall that very day bringing gale force winds and rain making this shot feel more like a run the gauntlet than your normal confetti shot. When they received their images they sent me a thank you card with this image and told me it was one of their favourites because it captured the energy and laughter of that brief moment in time. It's these fleeting moments that I just love.

  • Creating pieces of art... I say I am primarily a documentary photographer because it's not pure documentary wedding photography. I love using the natural light and capturing those beautiful natural moments but I also love using creative lighting. This image was taken at Amy's and Johnny's wedding at Scorrier House in Cornwall. When I spotted the gorgeous oak tree in the middle of the grounds I knew it had to be shot in such a way.

About Me


About Me


I was born in Guildford but grew up in Hamburg, I then relocated to Cornwall and fell in love with the area and photography. I went on to graduate in 2003 with a BA (Hons) in Photography and started working as a freelance photographer. I live with my fabulous wife Rebecca who works as a district nurse. We live in a small, quaint village called Devoran which we just adore.  

If I had to describe myself, it would be a happy, go lucky perfectionist. I hope you can tell from my site that photography is my passion and I love capturing and creating beautiful Wedding stories.
