About Me – It’s a personal business choosing a wedding photographer, so here’s a little more about what makes me tick…

For me, it’s always been about people and light. I have been behind a camera for my entire professional life. I started out shooting magazine editorial – portraits, celebs, real-life stories – and from there moved into advertising. Then, about ten or so years ago, I dipped a toe into wedding photography and rapidly became hooked. Documentary wedding photography condenses everything I love about being behind a camera: people, stories, raw emotion, plus some pretty splendid locations to boot.

I know how precious your wedding imagery is because I have been there myself. Twelve years ago, I married the love of my life, Beth, in a gem of a church in London’s East End, Our Lady of the Assumption in Bethnal Green. So I know how it feels to be on the other side of the lens, and how much those images matter. Believe me, if you think you care about your wedding pictures now it’s nothing to how you’ll feel about them in a decade’s time. They are an investment worth making (I know, I’m a photographer, I would say that, but it’s true nonetheless!).

Since getting hitched, Beth and I have set up home in Stoke Newington, east London. Along the way, we have acquired two junior decorators (or children, as Beth insists on calling them) plus one cat, who is no help whatsoever on the renovations front. When I haven’t got a camera in my hands, or a child that needs ferrying somewhere, tennis and skiing feature heavily in my life, along with the odd pint of Guinness.

Here’s a pic of the Sanders gang, taken on a recent wander round Abney Park, in Stoke Newington….really quite fond of this lot!
