Your wedding will be of the most important days in your life. When its all over with, you will have your rings, your memories and your pictures – so make the pictures the best they can possibly be.
I offer stunning wedding photography at very competitive prices. I pride myself on providing a friendly, professional service and photographs you just wont be able to stop looking at. Your wedding photography is an investment, so invest wisely!
"Natural, unobtrusive documentary photography blended with beautiful, fine art portraits".
I think this approach really helps capture the essence of the day. I catch those special moments as the day unfolds – the blushing gazes, the smiles, the laughter and the tears.
I see my role in the day to be in the background and to capture the day as it happens – not to orchestrate it. The majority of the pictures I take will be completely 'hands off' and natural, so no forced smiles and awkward situations (unless you really want some). That being said, it's nice to have a little time-out here and there to go and get some nice portraits to show off your beautiful dress. I use professional lighting to make things really stand out and have that stunning 'magazine look'. Don't worry if you are nervous in front of the camera – even for portraits I try to be as natural as possible. I won't be telling you exactly where to put each and every limb to the point you are fed up and just want to curl up and die.
If you are really worried about being in front of the camera – consider having an engagement shoot before the wedding. it is a perfect opportunity to get used to being in front of the camera and theres even the option of using the pictures on your wedding day as a guest book.
I think that its important to get to know you as a couple so that I can reflect your personality in the wedding photographs. Deciding which wedding photographer to use can be a daunting task, so I'm always happy to answer any questions you may have – every step of the way.
While I'm primarily a documentary photographer, capturing the day as it happens, I understand that it's not every day that you have all your friends and family together, all dressed up. There is usually about an hour after the ceremony where we can get some formal group shots and portraits.
It may be a tempting idea to try and get as many group pictures as you can, but it's important to remember that group shots can take a lot of time out of your day – and most of your guests will be more interested in making a bee-line for the bar!
I can work with you to make sure that we get just the right number of group shots – and the ones that really matter.
My home town is sunny Runcorn in Cheshire, but I do weddings all over – even as far as Scotland. I just love scenic places and im no stranger to travel – so I cover the whole of the North West, North Wales, Peak district and Lake district. up to 50 miles travel is incuded with my wedding packages, which covers areas such as Widnes, Warrington, Chester, Helsby, Wirral and Liverpool. (Reasonable travel costs will be required for travel outside of the allowance)
I understand that no two weddings are the same. It's your special day and will have unique requirements. With this in mind, if any of my packages don't fit your requirements or budget – I am happy to customise any package to ensure you get exactly what you need.
Up to 50 miles travel is included. For travel beyond 50 miles, reasonable travel costs may be required.
All Wedding packages require a booking fee of £150 to secure the date. The booking fee will be deducted from the total cost of the wedding package and the remaining amount can be paid up to one month before the wedding date.
You can get an extra £50 off all packages when paying in full at the time of booking.
To make things as easy as possible I accept Paypal, debit/credit cards, bank transfers and cash. You can even spread the cost by paying in instalments.

Our wedding pictures are amazing thanks to David, he really captured the whole day & he was a pleasure to have at the wedding. Professional & easy going with an eye for detail. He captured lots of lovely natural shots without us even realising he was there, pictures that we will treasure forever. Highly recommended, wouldn't use anyone else."
Dave was fantastic and accommodated everything we needed for our special day with 1 weeks notice. Great communication skills before and after our wedding day, I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to capture something special. Thank you."
