Luxury Lake District Wedding

oh yeah.
The crème

my favourite

My portfolio collection below showcases but a fraction of my favourite images I’ve documented over the past few years. It really is hard to pick 20-30 images from over 100,000 delivered photos. It’s worth noting you may have seen some of my past work (2018-2021) with posed couples and creative lighting.

I purposely have not included any of those Images as they do not align with my current brand, approach or style. I will always be as creative as possible on your wedding day but I want your Images to feel authentic and true to life, not staged or posed.

Hopefully my work speaks to you, you love the natural moments, relaxed portraits and feel good vibes. I would recommend having a quick read about how I approach a wedding day if you haven’t already.

In a nutshell, from early morning to 10pm i’m constantly looking for genuine authentic moments of laughter, fun, happy tears, beautiful fleeting moments and of course a few relaxed portraits. Yep, you read that right. 10pm.

Elmore Court Cotswolds Wedding 001

from our very first meeting I knew I could trust you to capture our special day. you are the exact recipe for success… genuine, friendly and professional with a great heart and eye for detail. all of our friends and family loved you. it was like having a friend attend our wedding.
