“PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE STORY I FAIL TO PUT INTO WORDS”
For as long as I can remember I’ve always preferred looking at the pictures to reading the words so I’m lucky enough to have been working as a creative for the past ten years. My first experience with photography was looking at family photographs when I was very young. I remember my cousins having some brightly coloured photograph albums which contained pictures from their holidays and adventures and I was captivated by them. The way that you could re-live a moment just by looking at an image.
I didn’t get behind a camera until much later in life when I started photographing architecture on my Dad’s camera and developing the images in the dark room whilst attending a photography course at my local college. It turns out that people are a lot more interesting to photograph. After photographing my first wedding in 2008, which was an an incredibly daunting yet exciting experience, I fell in love with documenting weddings. I love the emotional roller coaster of every wedding day and feel compelled to tell stories with my images. The camera is just the tool I use to capture what I see and feel on every wedding day – I really do shoot from the heart.
I’ve been photographing weddings for over a decade, have had my work published in several national magazines and am a qualified member of the British Institute of Professional Photographers and a member of This is Reportage.
