I love this shot because

Here is a panorama I took at Barbara and Williams wedding last year at Gibbon Bridge Hotel Chipping. Its a venue I go to regularly with my family because of the setting and the fabulous food. I have also been lucky enough to shoot several weddings there. This shot I took on my Fuji X-T1. […]

Bill & Gabrielle’s Wedding Eaves Hall Lancashire

I shot this wedding at Eaves Hall Lancashire for Bill & Gabrielle. Despite being in the summer I remember that it rained almost all day. And did it rain. Some of photographs were under umbrellas, some hiding under trees and some just getting wet. It has to be the wettest day I ever shot a […]

I Love this shot because

Its not my normal picture  but Leanne and Peter wanted this picture. They chose the location and I took the picture. They married in Poulton and on the way to The Grand Hotel Lytham we called at Weeton. Peter is from Australia and wanted an image that depicts England, I know Weston doesn’t always looks […]

People Watching

I have to admit I do like people watching. I like street photography. Essentially at a wedding I’m shooting street photography but with a captive audience. From the moment I arrive I won’t pose anybody, I remain in the background and I try to tell the story of that day. When I began my wedding […]

I do take group shots

I took this shot as the bridal party were preparing themselves for ‘the photographs’. I hate that term, its the part where everybody troops outside for some family photographs that nobody really wants. I have to admit its my least favourite part of the day. However this shot, to me is better than the posed […]

Sometimes the best Pictures

I took this image as the Bride and groom were walking back to be with their guests. We had spent a few minutes doing some posed pictures and this one is my favourite. I will set aside some time for a few posed pictures with the bride and groom (if they wish) but keep this […]

Capturing the Moment

I Love this picture. There is something very special between a father and his daughter on her wedding day. These moments may come they may not. I certainly never seek to make them happen, I don’t see that as my job. My job is to be in a position to capture images like this when […]

I Love this Picture because

Well first of all this is my son so I’m going to love it. But like most of my work he isn’t posing nor aware of the camera at all. This was on a boat trip in Bristol last week. I took this on a Fuji X-T1 with Fuji 35mm F2. The light and and […]

I Love this Picture because

I took this picture last month in Wrea Green. Shot with Fuji X-T1 and Fuji 56mm. I love it because nobody is looking at the camera and their focus is on the ceremony. I was drawn by the symmetry of the bridesmaids and by the wonderful expressions on their faces.
