Welcome to my site! I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, and although from here I also take commissions from all across the UK and overseas.
I often get asked why I do what I do. Simply put, to be able to capture those fleeting unseen ‘once in a lifetime’ moments is where the real buzz in documentary wedding photography lies with me, it’s not a job, it’s a passion and one that I feel very privileged to have.
Having seen so many friends and family being let down by poor wedding photography in the past, I decided that it was time to raise the bar and to provide a service that I myself would only be happy with. My aim on your wedding day is to blend in with the guests, taking photographs in a quiet and unobtrusive way. I am more than happy to take a handful of group shots as I appreciate it’s always nice to have some of these for the mantlepiece, and will undertake these in a quick and efficient manner, more often than not employing some of the ushers or best man to gather the guests as required.
I am not a loud or bossy wedding photographer pointing a great big lens in people’s faces all day long, nor do I use flash photography unless I really have to as I love to use natural light wherever possible. You can read more about me here, or if you’d like to get an idea of my style please take a look at my wedding photography portfolio. Also please make sure you check the blog from time to time as I try to update this on a regular basis with the latest weddings.
“We don’t know what to say to get across how grateful we are and how amazing they look, they really are so perfect and beautiful – thank you so so so much! We really can’t thank you enough, Steve. They really are unbelievable – they are so perfect and everything we could ever have hoped for and more! Thank you very very much, I think we could keep saying thank you forever because we will always look at these images and treasure every moment that you have captured” Michael and Daisy, Chilston Park, February 2011
“Thanks very much for sending the link to the photos. We’ve already gone through them several times, and I keep on enjoying seeing them. They give such a lovely portrayal of the day – a wonderful memory of our day and much even nicer than what I’d hoped for! There are just so many amazing shots to choose from now – we’re going to be at a loss which ones to choose for our album. Thanks again for providing such an amazing memory of our wedding day.” David and Maria, Wellington Barn, September 2012
I am also a member of the Wedding Photojournalistic Association (WPJA) who notoriously have strict entry requirements so am really pleased to have been accepted, and to join up alongside some of the leading documentary wedding photographers across the world. I am also a member of the excellent Society of Wedding and Portrait Professionals
