Photographing weddings at some of the most beautiful venues in the North East, North Yorkshire, Northumberland, County Durham & the rest of the UK. I’m very lucky to call my passion my job.

NaturaL & UnposeD

Do you hate being posed?

My approach is natural, unobtrusive & unposed. Do you hate being awkwardly posed? Having to stand for an hour or two when you could be with your friends & family getting having an amazing time! I think on your wedding day its important that you spend it with your loved ones & not with your photographer! Forget I’m there & just enjoy your day. As a documentary wedding photographer its my job to capture the moments as they happen, I won’t be running round directing your guests. I personally think the unexpected & real moments make for the most exciting photos. Wether it be emotional or hilarious moment, these are the ones you’ll really look back on with fond memories. If you want relaxed, natural & awesome images then get in touch, I’d love to hear from you!

My approach & how I do things

 I think its important for a wedding to be told from beginning to end, thats why Im with you from Bridal prep to well after the first dance. One of my main jobs is to tell the love story of the day. Its important to me that your finished images are a reflection of you & your day. No one wedding is the same to me, they are all so unique, thats why i’ll never take the same shot twice. I  stay as unobtrusive as possible, of course in a friendly manner & I still love to get to know your family & friends as the day goes on. This helps people relax and helps me to capture people having a great time. Hopefully you won’t even notice I’m there taking photographs.

On the day I’ll put aside some time for formal group shots & couple portraits. Both shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes. I enjoy every aspect & part of a wedding, each bit being so different. The nerves of the ceremony, the laughter of the speeches & the sheer madness of the dance-floor. I love it all. And I want that to show in your images.

I couldn’t recommend Joss enough, he was perfectly professional, friendly and invisible at times. I couldn’t of dreamed of the photos turning out so well.”
