I have a unique, non-traditional, photojournalistic approach to wedding photography that draws heavily on my previous career in TV and movie production. Think of me not as “the wedding photographer” who styles and directs your day, but rather as part of the wedding party who captures everything from the inside out – a participant rather than an observer.
This is key to getting everyone – especially yourselves – comfortable in the presence of the camera and behaving in a way that is genuine and candid. This is the secret to getting the relaxed, natural look that is so sought after and results in photographs full of authentic emotions and treasured memories that my clients find become even more important as the years pass.
AN ALBUM TO DIE FOR
Everything these days is so fast paced. Our brains are hard wired to ignore what has always been around us and instead focus on novelty. Attention spans drop as we absent-mindedly flick through Instagram, not really paying attention, not focussing on what people are trying to show or say to us.
That’s why I’m so passionate about albums. They force us to slow down, to absorb, recollect, think about the people and things that mean the most to us. There is simply no comparison between scrolling through 500 images on your iPhone and the experience of spending quality time turning the museum quality archival pages in your hand-bound album full of cherished memories. After all, nobody ever curled up on the sofa with a glass of wine and a jpeg.
INVEST IN YOUR MEMORIES
Your album will be with you forever to hold, pass to friends and family and hand down to your children. They are definitely an indulgence but in 40 years time you’ll be looking through your album with your grandchildren so glad that you decided to invest in your memories before life got in the way.

If my approach fits what you want and everything feels right then the first thing to do is get in touch to check my availability. I’ll get back to you quickly and assuming I’m free I’ll send you a full breakdown of my prices. To secure your wedding date all I need is a signed contract and retainer. I look forward to hearing from you!
Whatever I write will not do Graham and his photography justice… but I will try!! We are also both photographers, so choosing someone to photograph your own wedding is challenging and even more so for a picky pair like us! Without fail Graham was one of the best choices we made. He managed to capture our day in mood and emotion, exactly as we wanted it to be remembered. We were blown away at how amazing the images were and just how beautifully the story came together. I would recommend Graham to EVERYONE!
