Let me guess, you hate being photographed right? (unless you're drunk!)

Fear not - I have more tricks to make you relax, laugh and smile naturally than a tap-dancing weasel playing a banjo!

Whether it's your wedding or your crazy family you want photographed I'll make it more fun than a bag of bunnies.

Thank you so much for your beautiful wedding photos. You were thrown in at the deep end at times on the day but remained completely professional and understanding at all times. How you managed to capture so many lovely photos and for us to hardly notice you were there is beyond me! We have so many beautiful photos to look back on in the future years which I know will make us remember every moment. All the photos were touched up and made to look perfect and I really appreciate the extra work you did after giving them to us. Thank you thank you thank you.
Kathryn Girdlestone, Thrapston.

I photograph families across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire and weddings across the whole of the UK and beyond.


Family photos in a bluebell wood
11th May 2018

There's something timeless about family photos in a bluebell wood.
Perhaps it's because bluebells only grow in ancient woodland.
Perhaps it's because it harks back to simpler times when families used to picnic in woods, rather than playing on the X Box.
