Groupshots

Every time I’ve talked a couple into NOT ditching the groupshots, they’ve always ended up incredibly grateful afterwards. I just don’t think it’s something you should forego lightly. For the sake of half an hour? And it needn’t be a chore either. People have this notion of standing around for hours on end, bored. But […]

How to get good

I’ve always said that the best training any photographer can get is not college diplomas, online courses or watching Youtube videos. It’s to go out and actually do it. Over and over. Make as many mistakes as possible and learn from them. Doing it is the fastest and most thorough way to get good at […]

Kids are everything

Whether you do it back to front (have the kids first) or the traditional way round (get married first), it doesn’t matter much these days. Not in my book.

With family and friends watching. Without hesitation, let’s go! Don’t get me wrong. I’ve photographed wonderful couples, beautiful couples, amazing couples, eccentric […]

fifty fifty

When people ooh and aah over a particular bridal portrait of mine, I am the first to tell them that it’s is not entirely down to me. The portrait is a 50/50 joint effort, between me and the bride, with each party deserving equal credit for the end result. As a photographer, I’ll supply the […]

Just do it

If you can’t jump in with both feet on your wedding day, then when can you? The couples who’ve ended up having the best time, at least from what I’ve observed in my 18 years as a professional photographer, have been the ones who’ve thrown caution to the wind. Along with any worries about the […]

More kind words

“We have got them! And I have to tell you we are absolutely delighted with the pictures – it is not until you see them in print that you can appreciate the level of detail in each picture ( the computer screen does not do them justice ). On opening the storybook itself I was […]

Kind words

” I cannot recommend David enough. When Ross proposed to me back in June 2012, as with any engagement, a million and one things were added to our wedding planning to do list. The easiest decision we made was to book David as our photographer. We 1st met David back in May 2012 at our […]
