In This Moment | Declarations

This emotional image, featuring Zoe and Julian, was created during a beautiful and intimate wedding ceremony in the Victorian Chapel at Fulham Palace in London.

What I love about this photograph is how it depicts the atmosphere and the emotion of the moment with absolute clarity.

It sums up, concisely, what I’m looking to achieve through my documentary wedding photography practice - an honest, authentic and timeless representation of a day. Nothing forced, awkward or contrived.

Emotional ceremony photograph

In 2018 I was honoured to have the image featured in this TV commercial by Penn Medicine in the US, it’s shown around 47 seconds in, worth a watch…

In This Moment | That Bond

This documentary image, featuring Nikki and her beautiful little girl, was created during Nikki's stunning wedding at Chateau de Lisse in Gascony, France last year.

It was such an amazing wedding to be part of, filled with touching little moments like this one which really captures the bond between mother and daughter, and at this very specific time in their lives.

In This Moment | Let's Dance!

One of my favourite first dance shots of all time. This was a very dark environment - a marquee with a black ceiling and very little in terms of ambient light directed on the front of the couple.

The stage lighting, which was continually rotating to the music, as well as the reaction the groom is giving to the crowd, came together perfectly in this one split second. The resulting photograph takes me right back to the moment, instantly and with absolute clarity, despite this image being created almost 7 years ago! The power of good documentary wedding photography.

The cameras I use now would have rendered this image with much more precision, more clarity and less noise. For me however, it's more about that split-second moment and how an image makes you feel, even this many years on.
