Real moments, creatively Captured 

Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer

Award Winning Documentary Wedding Photography.

Hey there, thanks for scrolling down! So, you are getting married (woohoo!) and you’re on the hunt for a wedding photographer, well thanks for stopping at my site, I hope you like the images that you’ve seen so far. I like to sum my work up as Real Moments, Creatively Captured. Your wedding is unique and I want your photos to reflect this. If you don’t want your wedding to feel like a photoshoot and are looking for a more relaxed, less traditional approach to your day, then you could be looking for a ‘documentary wedding photographer, and would you believe it, that’s what I am! I want you to enjoy your wedding day, with big genuine smiles written all over your happy faces. These are the moments I love to capture. Real moments, captured creatively (see
I said it again!) in a natural and relaxed manner.

I live in Hitchin Hertfordshire, which is the best town in the world, if you don’t know it, come visit, tell me, and we can grab a coffee and talk weddings!



I’m really proud to be part of the following respected photography organisations, This is Reportage, WPJA, and Fearless Photographers. I am honoured to have picked up a number of prestigious photography awards throughout the years including being named as top 150 international wedding photographer for WPJA for 2019 and as a top 100 UK wedding photographer from SRL Lounge who for 2020.

In 2020 I was ranked 4th place within ‘This Is Reportage Family’ top 10 UK photographers. The documentary photography that this community creates, it’s truly inspiring.

A career highlight would be winning a gallery spot with the renowned Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery. You can read more about that here.


I’ve really been missing capturing these celebrations, from the confetti, to the kisses, I miss it all! I have been lucky to have had the honour of shooting 7 Micro weddings in Hertfordshire last year. So If you are sticking two fingers up to Covid and embracing these strange times you may find my post on smaller wedding celebrations in Hertfordshire helpful. Also have a look at Liz and Tom’s Micro wedding at Redcoats or Hannah and Pete’s boho beach wedding to see how celebrations with 30 or 15 guests can be just as awesome as those with larger guest lists.
Throwing the flowers


The pandemic may have robbed us of some amazing weddings, but I didn’t let my camera get too dusty. I spent most of the year documenting my family, which meant I was able to enter my photos into TIR Family. In the same vane as This Is Reportage, winning an award from them is really tough so I am totally amazed to have picked up 7 awards from them and received a worldwide ranking of 14 for 2020 and 4 for the UK!! To see my photography taken during the most recent lockdown follow this link.


Some exciting news, I recently started teaching photography at North Herts College. I’m talking the exposure triangle, the rule of thirds, composition, and loads more, but most importantly I’m meeting people who enjoy photography and it’s so wonderful to see them grow their knowledge. I have also been using the downtime the pandemic has thrown us, wedding photographers, to kick start my branding business ‘Shoot and Tell’, something I have wanted to do for years, but was waiting until both my Children were in full-time education.
