Hello. I'm a documentary wedding photographer based in Staffordshire but photographing weddings throughout the UK. Documentary wedding photography for me is about photographing the day as it unfolds in a very natural and unposed fashion, telling the story of the day and capturing moments that give an insight into what it was like being there - so that when you look back on your wedding photography in the years to come there is an emotion attached to every photograph telling you more than who attended but what it was like to be there. I don't want to spend your wedding day posing you or your guests or making you do 'weddingy' things but to spend the day telling a story about a couple and a wedding and the people that came together to celebrate it. Documentary wedding photography allows me to work in a low key way to capture the story of the day - looking for the best light, the perfect moment to press the shutter and the little details and incidents that make a day personal and unique.
"Thank you so very much for doing such an amazing job at capturing our wedding day, the photos will be a lifetime reminder of what a wonderful day we and everyone else had.
I also want to thank you for being so great
on the day, no one felt you were invading their space or privacy." Neesha Thomas
Staffordshire Wedding Photographer (and throughout the UK)
As a Staffordshire wedding photographer I work with you to create personal photography that is about your wedding day, I don't look to orchestrate the day but to know in advance what is special to you and create photography that puts all that into context and shows a day that could only be yours.
"The photos are just lovely, and we’re really thrilled with them… with the shots so natural it almost feels like re-living the day looking through them. The winter lighting works so well! So thank you very much indeed." Louisa Carey-Yard
With family and friends gathered together in one place at the same time there may be an element of formal photography that you need and I'm more than happy to accommodate but I like to work with you before the day to make sure that this part of the day is a quick and simple as possible in order that the day can continue to flow.
Reportage and Photojournalist Wedding Photography
What do you want from your wedding day? Most couples that it work with say that they want their day to flow and not have to stop for wedding photography and that's why they chose me. I want to photograph all the important moments of the day (and the little moments) in a natural and unposed fashion, capturing the small details and the big emotions.
"Thank you so much for capturing the heart of the day - it's lovely to see all the little things we missed while we were busy chatting to everyone! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to other couples. We had so many compliments during and after the day about how great you were with everyone!" Suhaine Baptie
When I started as a Staffordshire wedding photographer I never wanted to spend a day directing people and photographing my version of an idealised wedding day, that's why I evolved a documentary wedding photography approach. To me it's far more interesting to tell the story of each wedding day as a very specific and personal event - it's become a cliche but it's true that every day is different and unique, I find that you just have to look at what's happen in front of you.
