My photographic journey began when, aged sixteen, I found my grandfather’s old camera lying in a desk drawer. I’d always been artistic and was captivated by the camera immediately. A few years, and many rolls of film later, off to art college I went to do a degree in photography. On graduating I began to have some success and build my career, highlights from that time included exhibiting at Somerset House and photographing Boris!
During this time I also taught an A-level in photography. It’s always been the uniquely photographic elements of the medium that have attracted me to photography, those of capturing movement, energy, and emotion in a fleeting moment. At heart I’ve always been a documentary photographer, and hence why I think wedding photography is such a good fit. I shot my first wedding in 2004 and haven’t looked back since.
Due in no small part to my grandfather’s keen interest in photography, we’re luck enough as a family to have lots of amazing family photos and albums. They form an intriguing family history and definitely influence my wedding photography as I think about how future generations will view my pictures.
