Complementary engagement sessions, are they worth it?

November 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
I had this theory that, if you were looking for a photographer you'd want, no, NEED to know what this guy/gal would be like BEFORE your big day.

Remember, remember the 5th of November

Nothings going to change the fickleness of hum...

It really does make sense then, if you want to save some money, consider getting married mid week, as you can find some g...

Gareth and Melissa wedding day, the Forest Hotel in Dorridge

September 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Back in June I shot the engagement session for the lovely Melissa and Gareth. They were a little nervous at first but soon relaxed and started to enjoy the session. What was great was that we had built a really good relationship at the engagement shoot and over the phone as we planned the big day… and didn't it just show too? The two of them wer...

Let me show you my three packages that have been designed to suit most people. (Remember, you can build your own for a more bespoke service)....

I looked at the weather app on my phone on Thursday last week and thought about the photo shoot I had booked that weekend with my new customers Jay, Stu and Elvie.
