Hello and welcome.
Hopefully you are reading this because you have just got engaged and are looking for a wedding photographer. I work with my husband Phill and we run our Wedding Photography business from our studio based in Steyning, West Sussex. We work as a couple so you really do get two for the price of one.

I always enjoy photographing people and take a genuine interest in every wedding I photograph. By investing time to understand your likes and dislikes, all the details of your day from colour scheme to choice of venue,  to music for your first dance I make sure I understand how you see your wedding day, then I can create images in a style that reflects  you as a couple.

There are times when I will ask you to look at the camera and times when, if you have seen my camera, I have missed the best shot.   A wedding day is a real mix of emotion and excitement, but overall a very romantic occasion and to me wouldn’t be complete without capturing some of those moments too.  This is when I like to do a little posing or just give direction but only to the extent that the you, the Bride & Groom, are comfortable with; as there are two of us a session takes no more than about 10 minutes start to finish, and we normally recommend a minimum of three sessions.  Using this approach  is great way of capturing images at different times of the day and we can do as many or as few sessions as you wish.

I’m not a sales person; I’m a photographer. If you choose to book me as your wedding photographer it should be because photography is important to you and you like my work, contemporary style and relaxed approach.
