West Midlands & East Midlands
Wedding Photography is about the capturing the Romance of the day, the Love & Affection not just of the lucky couple but also all of the friends & family making your special day. A professional wedding photographer/s skill is to capture the Tears of Joy, the Tears of Laughter and freeze in time the most incredible moments & memories you’ll ever have as you enter into matrimony.
My style is ‘adaptable and dynamic’, in that I’m able to adjust my style to your requirements or provide a nice balance of Show-Stopping portrait wedding photography that will take pride of place in your wedding album or pride of place framed and mounted on the wall, whilst capturing images with a real-life feel mirroring your memories as if you are truly frozen in the moment.
Local Professional Wedding Photographer in Rugby
Every couple is different, some like me to take charge of planning their wedding photography style, managing the various images captured on the day as I choose and are quite relaxed in the editing process after their wedding, whereas some couples are the complete opposite with very clear views, styles and scenes they wish for me to capture. I’m more that happy to be either or, and can dance somewhere in the middle if needed. I do tend to find most couples like a happy medium, requiring only a Little Gentle Steering on the best wedding photography styles for them and to complement their wedding theme and makeup, along with a courtesy but firm ‘Crowd Management Tone’ to capture those important group shoots without making anyone feel bossed about or herded.
The best thing to do is talk with me and express how you want to manage your wedding day from start to finish as you require it. For my 2019 and early 2020 discounts on my Wedding Photography Tariffs, click here.

Ask the Wedding Photographer:
Yes Absolutely - As a professional wedding photographer I have full insurance cover, and the all important Public Liability Cover which many Wedding Venues insist on viewing before they allow you to work on site. This means that my insurance would trigger if something occurred injuring someone. For example, if someone walked into my camera lens and hurt themselves. It might sound minor but this is important to the wedding venue's management and for your guests.
Do not worry - If I'm suddenly taken ill or have an emergency, I will do my utmost to organise a high quality replacement. I would only organise a replacement that I knew would capture the most amazing photographs that I will then edit myself. That said, it would be highly unlikely to occur. If within 24 hrs and a replacement couldn't be organised, then my Partner whom is highly competent behind the camera lens and is often my second photographer would step in. I wouldn't gladly have him photograph my wedding day if he didn't have to be waiting for me at the altar. As an ex-Engineer and now a Marketing Director of an industry leading UK company you'd be in good hands should a major disaster occur. So rest assured I have you covered.
If something happened to my primary camera or some crucial equipment, then again fear not as I have plenty of spares in short notice or my insurance would simply provide replacements rapidly. Also as a professional, I'm often working with other leading Photographers so we would always help each other out in emergencies. So we are triple covered with spares, insurance and colleagues.
Of course, the website has some photographs covering Weddings and all my other professional shoots. That provides a good impression of my work. Although the website doesn't show the high resolutions images as they take far too long to load so every image is heavy reduced in quality.
I'd love to sit and show you my work in person, so please come and have a coffee at your convenience. I have plenty of hard copy high quality images to show you.
Firstly, I will do everything I can to avoid disruption to your perfect day, whilst safeguarding you, your guests, venue staff and myself. I regularly check the various websites for Government Guidance and Industry Guidelines, which are changing constantly. The following links are useful quick reference sites:
In terms of the how I'm changing my photographer behaviour, its mainly the application of common sense and PPE. So firstly I'll have my PPE mask and visor, but the most noticeable difference is I may step a few metres away from the groups between photographs were as are before I'd have loitered nearer waiting to capture shots. This doesn't make a difference, as I merely quickly move in and out as required. In terms of your guests and group shoots, we need to review the up to date guidance for the day but again we'll apply common sense regarding numbers, family bubbles, if a small group can spread out slightly outdoors etc.
As with illness or an emergency, if I was suddenly taken ill I would do my upmost to provide an alternative wedding photographer.
Absolutely you can - normally most of my couples have tailored their package with me in the discovery meet, where we meet to plan and discuss your requirements. So we can add and tweak as you wish.
If you suddenly require extra time on the day unplanned, then I will do my utmost to stay and will discuss the cost at the point as if its only a short period I may not need to charge at all. You won't be charged unreasonably I assure you. The only time I cannot is if I have personal commitments that cannot be altered at such short notice. I want you day to be perfect so will pull out all the stops to stay on as long as you need.
This is a common question to professional wedding photographers and easily answered, in that the Camera has two cards, so if one fails the other will have a RAW copy. And once home are immediately loaded to a back up, so there are multiple copies.
Absolutely, but this must be organised via myself as you don't want two strangers turning up getting in each others way or missing crucial photographs. I have my partner as a second photographer, but often invite other professional wedding photographers I've had the pleasure of working with in the past and have a clear plan so we team up seamlessly.
Absolutely - I'm a wedding photographer so I have 1,000s of photos up my sleeve, but you're in charge throughout, so what you want I'll do my absolute best to provide. So if you want a series of family shots taken or you'd like to explore the grounds for variety I'll happily capture these for you.
Typically the editing and processing time is between 4 to 12 weeks depending on the volume of photographs taken and your specific requirements on editing. Remember I'll typically have 1,000s of photos to review, crop, edit and present, so this does take time.
Any Wedding Albums or Prints or Products will be detailed on your order confirmation and we'll discuss this in macro detail at our discovery meeting to get this planned.
This depends on your wedding photography package and will be discussed in the discovery meeting together so we get this perfect. Post wedding day, we can review the photographs captured and you can decide if you want extras or other products.
We can work up any solution for you. So if you want all the photographs and you tell me this at the discovery meeting we can factor this into the costs and booking confirmation. Typically this would be on a USB stick and you'd have to specific if you want the edited or unedited, as this involves significant time and costs.
If you have purchased all the images, you are provided the licence to reprint these as you wish.
Absolutely - I have a great relationship with my couples and I can put you in direct comms with them (with their permission). They'll gladly give me the big thumbs up to give you that peace of mind you have a top wedding photographer booked in.
