That’s me, holding my favourite mug, on the rare occasion I’m in front of the camera and not behind it!
I wanted to be a photographer when I was fourteen and have been lucky enough to be one ever since I left college. I’ve shot advertising photography all over the world until I shot a wedding for a relative about ten years ago and loved it. It’s rare to have a moment when you know your life is going to change, but I had one that day and started to move into shooting weddings shortly after.
Since then I’ve shot hundreds of weddings, mostly in the UK but also some internationally, particularly in Italy.
I met Sarah at college and we have two fantastic kids, Hannah & Ben. Hannah looks like me and behaves like Sarah and Ben looks like Sarah and behaves like me….not sure how that worked, but at least it means we have some idea of what makes them tick. They tell me I laugh way too hard and long at my own jokes, but then someone has to.
I’m lucky enough to work with Sarah as it takes both of us full time to run this business. I have Sarah to thank for the photo above, and while she deals with album design and admin in the business, my aim is to get her out shooting with me at a wedding one day as she has an excellent eye for a great photo.
What do I like?
I like red wine, thankfully a love shared by Sarah as I’m terrible at choosing good wines and Sarah is great at it. I enjoy Formula One and rugby, though I rarely get to watch either as they are mostly on at weekends when I’m shooting weddings!
If you offered to cook for me I’d ask you to make spaghetti with a tomato sauce as finding the best tomato sauce in the world is pretty high up on my bucket list alongside getting over my fear of snakes.
I do a lot of running, I love it and the way it makes me feel. Besides, it’s important I’m fit and ready for when I get that call to be an extra in Game of Thrones….
