Staffordshire Wedding Photographer 

Creative Documentary Wedding Photography – Staffordshire & UK

Your wedding day is filled with stories…

I am a Staffordshire wedding photographer capturing wedding stories throughout the UK.

My wedding photography style is natural and real. I capture all the fleeting and special moments and let you get on with having the best time.

I love capturing interactions and showing people’s true feelings and characters, but I also love getting creative with the two of you. Spending a few minutes at different points of the day creating those WOW images of you both…looking your absolute best, whilst feeling like you

Documenting your wedding from the inside out, telling YOUR story. I always immerse myself in the wedding and the moment, being a part of the day with you.

The about page will show you more about me, and help you understand whether we are a good fit!

Please take time to browse through my blog and the featured weddings to gain an insight into how I like to capture the wedding day and begin to image your own wedding story…

Over the years I have been fortunate enough to be invited to photograph weddings all over the UK, throughout Staffordshire, Cheshire and Oxfordshire. I’ve travelled as far north as Edinburgh and the Scottish Highlands, down to London, Suffolk and the South Coast. With a recent couple taking me right to the stunning setting of the Italian Riviera of Sorrento. I’ve been lucky enough to work in some of the most remarkable venues throughout the country.

I would love to hear about your plans and to discuss how I could be a part of your day. If you’d like to talk, please do not hesitate to get in touch with email or call the studio.


Take a few moments to hear a little about my approach and see how I capture the wedding day, to see if I could be the perfect fit for you!
