Berkshire wedding photographer

If you’ve landed on this page you must be planning your wedding in Berkshire and searching for the right wedding photographer for your day.  I am a well established Berkshire wedding photographer working in a documentary style. This means that I will spend the whole day with you from getting ready in the morning right through to the last dance. I focus on capturing the special moments and the many emotions of the day with only a few posed shots. My unobtrusive way of working will leave you free to enjoy your incredible day without any fuss or time spent setting up long lists of family photographs. As you can see below I like to work creatively with light to capture the essence of your day, all the laughter and fun, the beautiful details as well as the intimate and romantic moments.

I have created this page to guide you through some of my favourite Berkshire wedding venues and to give you an introduction to my work. If you are interested in seeing more of my work or contacting me to discuss your wedding plans there are links to my website, portfolio and contact forms at the bottom of this page.

More information and contact details

You will put so much time into organising your wedding, you need a Berkshire wedding photographer that will work just as hard to capture all the moments that matter. As you can see from my portfolio I observe what is happening and document it using natural light where possible to create beautiful,emotive photographs. We can arrange a time for portraits in the evening but apart from that I just capture the wedding exactly how it happens. It does not matter how big or small your wedding will be or where it is,  I would just love to be there. If you like my style and you feel a connection with my work then please get in contact using the online form below.
