Waiting for the Shot ~ Why I Love this Picture

Whilst editing the most awesome of couple's recent Kent wedding (yes that means you Si and Cas!), I came across this photograph and I wanted to share it to explain my approach as a documentary wedding photographer. Sometimes there will be moments and opportunities during a wedding crying out to be captured, but not necessarily presenting themselves straight away.  [...]

A Wattle Hill Oast Wedding ~ Aaron and Pip

"Thank you so much for the photos and capturing our day so beautifully" On a recent warm summer's weekend, saw me photographing at amongst teepees at Wattle Hill Oast near the village of Northiam in Kent.  A beautiful spot for glamping and an even nicer one for Aaron and Pip's wedding day. A picnic theme worked really well within this great setting among[...]

Preston Court Wedding Photography ~ Richard and Steph

"Thank you Steve we are one very happy newly weds!" The ancient city of Canterbury in Kent.  A place that when you visit makes you want to up sticks and move there, was where I hooked up with the very lovely Steph and her girls at the Adobe Hotel in the midst of preparations.  The room was called the 'Fabulous' suite and indeed it and all within it's walls we[...]

Simon and Sara ~ Buxted Park

"Thankyou!  We were both really pleased with our choice to have you capture our day!" Simon and Sara.  As lovely couple as you'd ever want to meet, got me on board to photograph their day at the beautiful wedding venue of Buxted Park in East Sussex, a place I'm always fond of. It was a day packed to the rafters with baking sunshine and high emotion, with[...]

Low Light Photography ~ Why I Love this Picture

I'm currently editing Steph and Richard's awesome wedding at Preston Court in Kent, and have just paused at this image below and felt an urge to share it right now! Grooms often get over looked with wedding photography, so if an opportunity presents itself in the way of an unposed portrait i'll grab it. I love this shot of Richard here.   There are many others b[...]

Steven and Sally's Kent Oast House Wedding

"Photos look amazing, it is just what we wanted!   You captured some really lovely moments" If you take a Kent Oast House, add a London Routemaster Bus, and then an awesome laid back couple what do you get?  A bloomin' fab wedding that's what! Steve and Sally chose Finchcock's Oast near Goudhurst in Kent to hold their wedding party, and a party was exact[...]

John and Katy's Wedding at Buckhurst Park

"We absolutely love the photos! Thank you so much!!" Not so long ago John and Katy got married and Buckhurst Park in East Sussex played host.  It was such a great day I really don't know where to begin! Well let's start with John and Katy.  They were a dream to work with and this always comes across in the photos I find.  I have to give a mention to Katy[...]

Informal Portraits ~ Why I Love this Picture

I don't normally post images from a wedding before the main blog, but I wanted to share this lovely moment from Steve and Sally's day last week. I had found a quiet lane behind their venue of Finchcocks Oast near Goudhurst in Kent, and so suggested we went round there for some quiet shots of them and their lovely son Nathan.  I kept a good distance and by doing so [...]

Some fun with the superb Canon 24mm 1.4L ii

If your lucky enough to have a passion that one day evolves into a job, then it is so so easy for a photographer to stop taking their kit out and shooting in his or her spare time.  You know, like, for fun. SO.  Last Friday, I had a spare day, the sun was shining and so I grabbed my Canon 5D mk3 with the superb 24mm 1.4L ii,  and took my 3 year old daughter Kitty d[...]

A Kent Wedding at Charlton Park ~ James and Claire

"The photos are beautiful - thank you so much. We love them. You've captured the day - in all its parts perfectly" On a recent glorious Spring morning in May, I found myself in the beautiful town of Whitstable in Kent to photograph preparations for James and Claire's wedding day. The week before had it's fair share of rain, but strong winds blew al[...]
