MY PASSION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
My photography journey started many moons ago at art college getting to grips with the mysteries of developing film. There I watched in wonder as an image slowly faded into view before your eyes, magical!
With my thirst for travel I soon realised I needed a good camera with my to document what I saw and so reached for an old 2nd hand Minolta DSLR from my local camera shop, it didn’t even have auto focus! But with this camera it captured images from the Rockies of Canada to the ancient monuments of the Nile in Egypt.
When I entered the digital era soon after and with new found excitement I realised a passion for photographing not only the landscape but the people wherever I visited to put a face to all the stories I heard.
Originally my background was in art and design, then branding and more recently UX design for digital media. But along the way that photographic hobby eventually turned into a profession taking me all over the north of England capturing truly epic weddings to relaxed family lifestyle portrait sessions. Oh and also the odd royal visit.
My approach and style to any wedding is to tell that unique, emotive and natural story of your day that will make you smile and bring a tear to your eye for years to come. I will capture those big moments from that first kiss to whizzing back down the aisle. But also all the little tings too, kids running amok on the dance floor, an emotional parent bursting with pride or a nervous best man stepping up for that speech I’m there to grab that image.
No matter the event big or small, traditional church or contemporary hotel, I can’t wait to hear about your plans!
