I’ve been a photographer ever since gaining the front page of my college newspaper with my first assignment. A diploma in photojournalism followed and then some work experience at The Times in London. After two weeks they offered me work as a photographer there. I spent nine years there shooting news and features around the UK and abroad. It is this photojournalism background that shapes my approach to wedding photography. In fact for me, one of the biggest compliments I have received was to be told that my work was “more photojournalism than wedding photography”. When I shoot a wedding, I’m shooting a photo essay.

After winning the award, “Professional Photographer of the Year 2012” for a wedding image and my lead image here. I also recently won “The Best Wedding Photographer - London & the South-East” title at The Wedding Industry Awards 2015. I also won “Highly Commended” in the National Finals of the The Wedding Industry Awards 2015.
