I did it back to front. I had kids first, got married second. My son Samuel (7) was my bestman. But who cares what order you do things these days? I’m not saying that there’s no value...

Forest Light

This is one of my favourite wedding pictures from one of my favourite weddings of 2017. There’s something indescribably magical about sunlight streaming through leaves and branches. Magical...

” We booked David because he did such an amazing job of photographing my sister’s wedding way back when! And those photos are still taking pride of place in our families homes today!...

King Kenny

Groupshots

How to get good

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. There are brilliant arguments for...

Being me

I used to get this at the start of my career in 2000/2001 where folk would hire you on the condition that you shoot like someone else or in a photography style that was not natural to you....

Worth it
