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[...]

Stockholm Photography

A recent break away saw me re-visit one of my favourite cities if of the world, Stockholm in Sweden.  I dusted off my trusty Fuji X100 for the trip as didn't want to lug heavy DLSR's around and shot entirely in jpeg. The Fuji X100 is still a great camera by the way in case you were wondering and can be found for bargain prices now.  I don't think I'll be parting fr[...]

A Quiet Moment ~ Why I love this Picture

The walls within places of worship are an incredibly powerful setting in which to hold a wedding ceremony.  Walls that could tell many a tale no doubt and the confines of which as a documentary wedding photographer get my utmost respect whilst working. This image from Andy and Yen's beautiful wedding at Rochester Cathedral stands out for me amongst many, as it's a [...]

Amberley Castle Wedding Photography ~ Chris and Sophie

Amberley Castle in West Sussex is one of those wedding venues I've heard loads about but had never had the chance to visit.  So when Chris, an old friend from a tv cooking show I used to work on, got in touch and said he was marrying Sophie there I jumped out of my seat! You see, Amberley Castle is a quite simply stunning place.  It's been standing 900 years, sits [...]

The Cook's ~ Kent Family Photography

A few months ago as the first blossom was braving an appearance, I hooked up with the Cook family for a relaxed family photo shoot in their local park near Bromley in Kent. The morning was great fun and the kids (and parents!) behaved impeccably allowing me to make use of the fantastic light and to get some lovely moments. Below are a handful of images that I li[...]
