From an early age I always had an interest in photography, I loved taking the family photographs and over the years I’ve had experience of different types of camera from film to digital.
When my children got older and I had more time on my hands I decided to take a photography course as I especially wanted to go into wedding photography professionally. I achieved a Distinction in City & Guilds Photography and I am also a qualified member of the SWPP (Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers). I learnt so much to help make my photographs wonderful memories for my clients and I’ve never looked back.
Since going professional in 2001 I have loved being a Plymouth wedding photographer covering all kinds of weddings from small intimate ones with just the bride and groom to others with over 200 in attendance. I have photographed in many different venues and have loved each one for it own unique setting. With the many changes in the photography industry, including the transition from film to digital and the move to more natural, documentary style photographs I have listened to couples to see what they would like. I have moved with the times, I love my job and have been thrilled to work with some wonderful couples. Wedding photographs are something you only get one chance at, so it is really important to make it a special day and a great experience leaving the couple longing to see their pictures.
I do not work alone as a Plymouth wedding Photographer, Julie has been working with me since 2014 as a second shooter and has a wonderful artistic flair. Together we have become more natural and creative in our style and have enjoyed working with so many lovely people.
I visit you at your home to discuss your wedding day photographs, style and which groups you may like along with the informal ones throughout the day. If we haven’t photographed at a venue before, we will visit in advance of your wedding. Everything has to be perfect. Please call for your friendly home visit.
