I began my career working in TV and Movie production, learning how not just to record what I saw in front of me, but also how to frame it, reimagine it, and take it from an everyday moment into something people would actually want to look at.
I've been lucky that my work has taken me to some extraordinary places at some momentous times - East Berlin while it was still behind the wall, MTV Music awards, and movie premiers to name but a few. It also allowed me to hang out with some amazing people - ask me about the time I accidentally sat on Björk (she's tiny).
My route into photographing weddings was accidental but one thing I knew from the start was that the best weddings are an excuse to gather everyone you love together in the same place and make it a day of celebrating friendship and belonging, and that's what I love to capture in my images.
After two decades living and working in London, Mumbai and NYC, I've found home in Guildford - 32 minutes from Waterloo - with my Wife, and Titanic-obsessed 5-year-old Son, who loves anything to do with Lego, Rockets or jumping up and down on the bed, which is fine by me because I love all of those things too.

Graham was our dream photographer; his professionalism and attention to detail before the wedding were extremely reassuring. He totally blended in with the guests and was even dubbed the ‘ninja photographer’, crouching and bending to capture the perfect shot and then disappearing into the crowd. Our photos are nothing short of stunning, and he has absolutely captured the essence of our day. Nothing was staged, and every shot is not only a natural and accurate reflection of the emotion we felt, but each one tells a special and unique story. Thank you so much for our pictures; they are breathtaking and more amazing than I could ever have imagined.
Graham took the photos for our wedding, and I can't quite articulate how chuffed we are with them. They are natural; they capture the day and the personalities of so many people, and he really listened when I said I didn't want too many posey shots. We got some, which are lovely and pleased the mothers, but the rest are just wicked photos of our friends having the time of their lives.
We'll cherish them forever - thank you! I couldn't recommend Graham highly enough! x
Thank you so much for our pictures; they are breathtaking and more amazing than I could ever have imagined. You captured our day beautifully, and it really does feel like we are watching a story when we look at them.
You captured precious moments we missed, and it's so lovely seeing every part of the day as it happened naturally. I didn't even realise you were taking half the pictures, and I have no idea how you managed to constantly move in and out of crowds without anyone noticing.
