I’ve been holding a camera and taking pictures for over 10 years. As a child I dreamed of becoming an Architect, a serious ambition of my younger self. Drawing was my passion, but then as I grew older, I started to merge my passion for art and design into digital graphic design. I was fascinated by graphics, digital image manipulation and generally just being creative on the computer. The problem I had, was that I didn’t have any content to play around with, so I bought a camera. My Konica Minolta Dynax 5d was a 6 megapixel DSLR that I bought at the bargain, clearance price of £200 as an ex display model. I was all set and couldn’t stop taking pictures of birds, landscapes, street photography, family events and seeing what I could do on the computer with my images. Most of it too embarrassing to share as I experimented.
10 years later I’ve been working as a professional photographer in Liverpool capturing weddings, portraits, events, and commercial photography for clients around the North West of the UK. I’ve been living in Liverpool for all my life, a city that I love and capture in my images so often. I’m mainly out of a weekend capturing weddings and during the week I’ll be editing pictures or creating wedding albums for my clients. I capture about 35 weddings per year, as well as capture images for commercial clients around the region. I love capturing family portraits on location also, lifestyle shoots at the beach or a local park are so much better than the early 2000’s white backdrop studio shoots you’ve probably seen before. I’m always sharing my images on Facebook and Instagram. Being creative and capturing bold and dynamic images is what I love to do.
Wedding Photography is my specialty, there’s something magical about a wedding day that captures my creativity and makes me strive for more interesting and creative photographs for my couples. I’ll often have a walk around, taking in every detail of a venue or location and spotting an idea, something you’ve not seen yourself or a perspective not normally captured.
Some of the greatest shots I’ve captured have been totally unplanned and genuine natural moments. It’s important for me to be at the ready all the time so when the father of the bride drops his pants during the speeches I capture it. (Yes it happened) or when the best man sets his speech up in flames on the table candles I capture it. Hopefully your wedding day is full of happy memories and when you view your images, the story of your special day is told through your photographs.
It’s not all about the photography though, you know you’re going to get great images when you book your photography, but what about the photographer, is he approachable, is he going to make you feel at ease?
That’s probably why I get so many referrals and people coming back to me over the years. Because they’ve seen how I work on the day. It’s a relaxed approach that brings the best photography of your guests and yourselves. If you’re like the majority of my previous couples and are not that keen on getting your photograph taken then I’m probably the photographer you’re looking for. If you’re not smiling I’ll tell you your not smiling, I’ll get you to look at each other awkwardly and then tell you how awkward you look. The little laughter that comes after that is the shot I capture. It’s natural it’s simple and it’s genuine. You’ll soon feel at ease and realise there’s nothing to it, just enjoy your wedding day and I’ll capture the rest.
I’ve captured hundreds and hundreds of weddings. I’ll not only capture your photographs I’ll liase with your venue co-ordinator to make sure your wedding runs on time and your photography is done within the alotted time.
