Do you love the light and romantic style of Fine Art Photography but want your wedding photos to be happy and natural rather than too styled?
I am a Lancashire Wedding Photographer based in this beautiful northern county, close to the city of Preston. I photograph weddings across the North West region and also throughout the UK, Europe and further afield.
Your wedding will be a perfect reflection of you.. and I hope to document this uniqueness. From the hand-crafted little details and subtle glances to the big and unforgettable moments. I like to capture natural, relaxed photographs which document your wedding day as it happens, rather than too many staged groups. I love to mingle amongst your guests and capture their personalities as they interact with each other, and find the most treasured and memorable photographs are usually the ones which capture real moments, so strive to work in an unobtrusive way and try to avoid too much posing.
From the bridal preparations on the morning of the wedding, through the nerves and excitement of the ceremony, laid-back drinks and canapés, guests relaxing in the grounds of your venue, the emotion of the speeches, and all the way to dancing at your evening reception .. I love to experience the pure joy that a wedding creates and hope to capture it for you to remember.
I shoot part digital and part traditional film and seek beautiful and interesting light when choosing a backdrop. My favourite weddings have been colourful, eclectic, joyous and relaxed days. I love to see a bride and groom whose wedding is influenced by their personalities and interests, and I love unusual and creative details, but the most important thing for me is capturing the moment that you have chosen to spend the rest of your lives together.
I enjoy photographing at a wide variety of venues across our beautiful Lancashire countryside, including local churches, hotels, marquees, country houses and the odd tee-pee here and there! I regularly work in and around Preston, Lancaster, Clitheroe and Lytham, and also further afield in Manchester, Yorkshire and The Lake District. I also absolutely LOVE to travel, and have photographed weddings across the UK and into Europe.
My style can probably be described as a blend of natural, documentary photography and pretty and light fine art portraiture, shooting on a mixture of professional digital SLR’s and also some medium format, analogue film cameras. I love to create elegant, soft images using a shallow depth of field and making the most of natural light. Getting my film scans back from the lab is the most exciting time of the week!
