Need a Wedding photographer?

If so then high five for finding my website! I understand that you are probably feeling overwhelmed with the vast task choosing someone to trust with the most important day of your life. I am here to reassure you that you are in safe and creative hands. Read a little more about me here but for now let me direct you to some pages that might answer your questions.

What style of photographer are you?

The laid back non bossy kind that shoots Naturally & Creatively. I would say 80% of the weddings photos I capture are natural or made to look natural. I also always try to present something unique for your wall by constantly experimenting with new ideas and photographic magic. I consider myself really lucky to earn a living as a professional wedding photographer whether close to my home in Cannock, or across the open seas.

How long have you been in business?
I am in my 11th year shooting weddings now, I lost count at around 350 but its fair to say that I am an experienced photographer who is able to deal with whatever situation might arise on your big day.
Where are you based?
My studio is in Cannock but I do travel outside of the Staffordshire area. I would say that I have pretty much shot at every wedding venue in Staffordshire but have also covered destination weddings all over the world.
How much do you charge?
Every wedding is different so I prefer to price each client individually based on their needs. Some clients prefer albums, others digital (read more about my thoughts on album vs digital here) as well as the date, timings and travel can all contribute to wedding photography prices. I would be more than happy to check availability and start the quotation process, if you could complete this form and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Genuine creativity and Natural moments for each and every bride & groom. Your wedding photography should be unique to you and your wedding. I pride myself on delivering something different for each of and every one of my awesome clients. Not all wedding photographers are the same and I think its really important to choose the right creative that not only is going to make you feel comfortable, but someone who can also share your creative wedding vision. In a nutshell I offer everything you could want from a wedding photographer, I want to capture your day, make you laugh until you snort and also create some beautiful images.

He made everyone feel really comfortable at our wedding & the pictures are just amazing!  We cannot recommend him enough, you will not be disappointed!

Stuart & Lisa

Everything you want from your photographer.

You really should not have to compromise on creativity or quality for your wedding day. A good wedding photographer can shoot any style so if you are a boho bride, a classic dancing queen or rock chick, then I will capture your style, not force a style onto you. I am a big believer that Wedding photography does not have to be a certain way, so lets be brave and capture just what you wantSo if you just want documentary natural style images then thats totally cool with me. Or maybe you love the dramatic wedding photos or maybe some quirky and alternative images? I will be there for all the fun, all the emotions, all the details.

Featured Weddings

My Wedding Portfolio is a good starting point to see a huge selection of images from different weddings throughout Staffordshire. I have also recently travelled abroad to shoot some destination weddings, so if you are getting married outside the local area then please feel free to get in touch. You are also welcome to visit my studio near Stafford on the edge of Cannock Chase to view some full wedding albums, but if you prefer then you can see a few featured weddings below.

Other Recent Work

Keep up with my latest weddings and antics by following me on Instagram or Facebook. I am a social media addict and try to publish a few images from each wedding or portrait shoot on at least one of my social platforms. I also love it when clients share the love, so if you see yourself or friends then please be sure to tag and share. It is of course good to share! In addition to the contact form here, its important to mention that I am happy for potential clients to also reach me via social networks. I am online quite a lot so will get back to you as soon as possible.

Wedding Charity

In celebration of ten years shooting weddings we have decided to launch a new concept to help raise money for charity. The idea is that as suppliers of the wedding industry we could collectively support charitable donations and give a little back to those who need it. The concept is primarily aimed at wedding photographers but donations and involvement are welcome from other wedding industry suppliers, wedding bloggers, and also clients. Collectively the wedding industry could make a huge difference for a wide range of charities. Read More

Publishing and Awards

I have been lucky enough over the years to have been featured by some of the leading national wedding blogs and publications. You may be familiar with some of the logos below but if not then maybe take a look, they are an absolute gold mine for wedding planning ideas and resources. I will close with a humble trumpet blow by saying that during the the last two years I have won lots of industry awards, most notably being chosen for several editors choice awards and a “Best of the Year” from  thousands of entries.
