About Me

Relaxed & creative wedding photographer

So this is me: Proud father to a wonderful boy. Husband to my best friend. A full time relaxed and creative wedding photographer. Booth operator. Lover of old doors, brick walls and your best goofy smile! I tend to get lost (on purpose) in new places. A huge foodie and big fan of all kinds of music. However, I’ll just as happily choose cheese on toast and Bryan Adams!

Where my heart is

I live and work in the heart of Nottingham, it’s an amazing place to be. There is so much creative talent here.

I’m also extremely proud to be part of the community. Can you tell I’m pretty attached? I grew up here, went to school here, and my son was born here. This is also where I met the love of my life!

All over the U.K.

and beyond

Weddings take me all over the country and absolutely love it. One of the best things about my job is the different places I get to see :).

You may find me editing where the best coffee in town is. Or wandering around, soaking up as much of the city as possible. Although I’m not very good at it, I love to dance. No pictures of me here for technical reasons…

The people who make my world

When I’m not out and about with my camera, I’m most likely teaching my son (my limited knowledge) of the beautiful game.

It’s great to see him grow into a young man, recently he's been moved to defense, and he's absolutely rocking it! He also scored a 30 yard winning screamer of a goal against my old rival. I hope he knows how truly proud I am of him!

So very grateful

We did a thing

In 2019, Ruby and I got married at Bawdon Lodge Farm. She is my best friend and I could not be happier. She teases me something chronic and keeps me smiling. It’s such an eye-opener to be on this side of things. I love my job even more now.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have noticed that Ruby sometimes second shoots for me. Because I trained Ruby myself, I’m probably biased, but she is genuinely amazing.

Here’s more about having a second photographer for your wedding. If you love photographs of genuine, natural moments. Moments between you, your family & your friends. Not too staged, not too posed, just real, then second photographers like Ruby are great!
