Im a documentary wedding photographer based in Lytham Lancashire. I have studios in Wrea Green and Offices in Lytham Town Centre.
I am married have four children. I have shot over 200 weddings to date. I have photographed everything from food to cars to weddings. Now I only shoot weddings, its what I enjoy the most, its a pleasure to be trusted with such a special occasion.
I shoot in a certain style, some call it candid, natural, photojournalistic or documentary. Essentially I capture images of people, without any posing. Many of the images I capture no one is aware of. These are moments of people being very natural, no forced smiles or bride and grooms in positions that they never thought were possible or would ever achieve again. Id like your day to be your day without any interference from me. A wedding without the obvious hand of a photographer is a special and quite rare event.
If you have a requirement for a small amount of group and couple shots I will set aside part of the day for this.
I rarely use any flash and never during a ceremony. I may add some lights to the first dance if its particularly dark but thats about it. I use cameras and lenses that perform well in low light, that are small and won't draw attention to me. I carry backups of everything that I use too. You can see some feedback of brides and grooms that I have worked for here on this site. I work alone and occasionally with an assistant if your day demands it. My packages start from 4 hours through to 12 hours, you can see my pricing information above or use the contact page or give me a ring 07973 224466.
Many of my images end as black and white but I do shoot in colour too.
I can offer you audio recordings of your ceremony, speeches or both. I can also offer Photofilms, with images, words, audio and music from your day. You can see more about these products on my photo films page above.
I now work solely on wedding photography and will happily cover your day anywhere, and I mean anywhere! I do not have a day job, trying to earn income from photography as a hobby. All my equipment, energy and passion is devoted to wedding photography it means that I should have an edge over those that just do it to suppliment other work. I do get booked up well in advance though. Im currently taking bookings for 2018.
Give me a call on 07973 224466 or use the contact page. Ill be honest with you and Ill tell you if I do not think I am the right person for your wedding.
