Lake District Wedding Photographer

covering the whole of the UK & beyond

Hi, and thanks for stopping by. If you're reading this then you've likely just got engaged and you're looking for a wedding photographer, so firstly congratulations and secondly, thank you for considering me as your wedding photographer. I have over 10 years of experience in wedding photography and have photographed over 500 weddings to date; I work predominantly in the Lake District & Cumbria, however, I also travel all over the UK and overseas.

I shoot super relaxed, beautiful photos that capture the moment and allow you to actually be at your own wedding!

As a lake district wedding photographer, I photograph moments of love, laughter, happiness, anticipation, surprise, trust, and tears of joy. Most of all though, I photograph natural photographs of people and the way in which they connect within those moments. If you think we would be a great match, then please get in touch. I'm looking forward to hearing about your wedding plans and how we can work together to create images that you'll treasure for a lifetime.

"Often, it's the moments between moments that matter the most.

I don't take pictures, I make them!"

Cameras are great at helping me capture these moments but they're not very good at adding feelings and emotions to them. I don't take pictures - I make them! Using photos as a starting point for my digital canvas, I paint colour and light, add texture, remove distractions and breathe life into your images so that they become charged with feelings and passion truly reflecting the emotion experienced in that very moment. Your photos will undergo an extensive period of enhancement in post-production, each image will be hand-edited one by one so that you look flawless - as you should on your wedding day! With over a decade of experience in photography, design, and image retouching you can be confident that your memories are in good hands!

My Style

My photography style is typically unobtrusive, I’m not the sort of photographer that’s going to shout at your guests and dictate where they should be and what they should do - that said, I’m happy to direct moments when needed. Mostly though, I will just photograph your day as it naturally unfolds, anticipating those meaningful moments that I just know you will love. I look for stories within stories and moments between moments.

When it comes to editing, I won't make all of your photos 'warm and golden' or 'purple and lilac', or some other colour palette that's currently trendy. In my opinion, these styles will only date in time. I believe that wherever possible, your wedding photos should be bright and colourful, vibrant and contrasty, but most of all timeless - it's my hope that you will see this reflected in the photos I make.

I shoot in a way that enables me to capture and create natural photos

Couples will often tell me that they don't like having their photos taken and that they prefer natural and candid photos of themselves. Well guess what, those are the photos that I like to make as well and because of this, I work in a way where we can create those natural photos very easily without them being staged and without you feeling awkward. Believe it or not, most of the photos that you see on this website are of people who have said they don't like having their photo taken and whilst I can't promise that sticking a camera in your face won't initially feel weird, I can promise that it won't feel this way for very long and that we will get those natural photos that you will love, and what's more, that you will actually enjoy the process!

My expertise lies in capturing your moments and transforming them into vivid and vibrant photographs that will etch themselves into your memory and hold a special place in your heart for years to come

Whilst I like to mainly shoot natural images, I'm also happy to pose you should you wish. Your wedding photography can be as posed or as natural as you wish, just let me know.
