I had so much fun looking back through Rachele and Anthony's wedding photos. One of those days where the energy and atmosphere sweeps you off your feet and you truly feel part of something very special. There were so many personal touches - from the handmade wedding signage by Rachele's talented sisters and doughnut stand by Pops himself, to the Brides talented best mate singing during the ceremony and late into the night with her band Petit Rouge. I just love the flow of wed
Well, what can I say? What a wonderful family and a wonderful wedding. I photographed Vicky and Stevens wedding at Nuthurst Grange, Solihull on Easter Sunday. I would like to say the weather was mild - but it wasn't. Storm Kate arrived and along with both Vicky and their young daughter Ella dosed up on antibiotics, there was the potential for this event - this huge, massive deal, once-in-a-lifetime kind of event to have been a wee bit stressful. The world does like to test yo
During our initial meeting, Lisa and Steve explained to me that they were after some really relaxed, candid photography on their wedding day and weren't too keen on any formal, posed photographs.

Chrissy from the Wedding Quarter, Birmingham hosted a hugely successful Designer Open weekend, showcasing their collection of Alfred Angelo wedding dresses. Amidst the wedding talk, there was fizz, cake and ofcourse some wonderful brides to be trying on wedding dressees, some for their first time. I was in my element chatting and photographing, It was such a pleasure to capture this event and I look forward to working with Chrissy more when I finally move to our new home in t
I get excited by all of my work. I love what I do, I'm so lucky. What makes it really nice is when a couple really 'get' what you do and enjoy the ride with you. I shot Laura and Adams Birmingham wedding with the very talented Darren Gair Photography. He blew me away with his contribution, as always. Infact, it was Adam saying 'You two are the dogs b****cks' whilst we were working on their couples portraits at The Plough and Harrow that gave that extra reassurance that it was
"We are in a digital dark age", or so the Google's vice president Vint Cerf told us in last Fridays Metro newspaper. Just think now about all the outmoded forms of storage - floppy disks, VHS, even CD's. Try to find a machine that will read these devices... scary! We all love using social media as our go to for sharing our lives - for Birthdays, our children's first steps, our achievements (not to mention our countless culinary feats) and even Wedding photos.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT WEDDING PHOTOS? The morning of the wedding. Your photographer arrives at your house for prep photos. How do you feel about having your wedding photos taken? Have you discussed this with them or even thought about it yourself? Do you feel self assured? Confident?
