Documentary wedding photography

As a documentary wedding photographer I am always close to the action but never intrusive. Capturing the unfolding of a wedding as it happens. I do not halt the flow of a wedding but I follow it. I connect with it so I can anticipate what will happen next. I work alone using small unobtrusive high quality digital cameras, blending in with your friends and family capturing unique moments that will be cherished by your family for ever.

Family wedding photographs

I document the wedding without having to interact with your guests for the majority of the wedding, letting them enjoy the day without having to worry about being photographed. I also understand how important family group photographs are. If you would like a selection of family group photographs I will arrange them in a professional, quiet manner at the church or your wedding venue when you are ready.

I use a selection of your favorite photographs to produce a wedding album covering all the events during the day. To view the sample albums please contact me to arrange a meeting.
