Photography has always been a passion of mine and I love preserving precious memories forever. I started with film photography in the 80's and always had a camera in my hands. In the last 10 years I have worked hard to be able to become a fully self employed photographer. I've been specifically involved with sport photography in the North West of the UK. I was club photographer for Fleetwood Town FC for 3 and a half seasons and I am now with Chorley FC providing match day photography for their media team. During this time I've done many weddings but this has now become my main source of income with sport continuing in the background when time allows.
This background in sport has been a great advantage for weddings with the ability to react and spot moments that would otherwise be missed. I've also had to adapt quickly to changing situations which is all great experience. I have been doing weddings for the past 10 years. Everyone says I have a great ability to catch those unguarded moments that can mean so much.
If you book me to cover your Wedding you'll be booking someone that really cares about what they produce for you. We will meet up before your big day and discuss the final timings and arrangements and also take some pre-wedding photographs so we get to know each other and you feel more comfortable in front of the camera. This allows us time to see what looks best and these images are included in my price.
I'll work non stop on your day ensuring that no moment is missed and you can re-live your day forever through the images I take. I try to be as invisible as possible during the day capturing all the moments you want and so many more that you will miss.
Obviously, everybody wants some posed and group photographs during the day but you also want to spend time with your guests rather than with me. I will make sure you get everything you want from your day.
I believe it is one of the most important decisions you make regarding your wedding day. The images your photographer creates will be your enduring memories of a magical day. Make sure you compare the quality of the photographers portfolios and ensure they represent the images you want.
My editing process starts as soon as I get home from your wedding day, a selection of images will be with you the day after for you to share with friends and family. I will remain in touch during the editing process and aim to have the images with you within 2 weeks of your wedding day.
