As a professional wedding photographer in Cumbria I'm so often moved by the glimpses I get into people's lives through their wedding. I'm invited along to one of the most important days of their life and given the privilege of photographing events as they happen. Special, never to be repeated moments ~ one chance, then they're gone. There are two things that go through my mind when photographing weddings ~ the first is that everyone should be enjoying YOUR day, the second is that it's up to me to capture images so that you can re-live and continue to enjoy your day ~ forever!
Every wedding is different. The common element shared by all the weddings I have photographed is the feeling of love between the couple, their families and friends. I enjoy the challenge and constant pressure when photographing weddings to notice moments and make sure I capture them, moments the bride and groom may well be unaware of until they see the wedding photographs.
A friend looked through my wedding photography and told me what they enjoyed was the feeling of 'life ~ love and laughter'. That sums up my approach to photographing weddings.
Thank you to all the brides and grooms who have shared their wedding with me.
I'm based in Grange over Sands in Cumbria on the edge of the Lake District in the northwest of England and photograph weddings throughout the region, Grange over Sands, Kendal, Lancaster, Ulverston, Barrow in Furness, Windermere and thoughout the UK. I have photographed weddings from Edinburgh to Torquay and would love to photograph weddings in London and other areas in the UK.
