December 2013 update: I'm no longer working as a photographer

In 2009, I launched a company that makes business software for photographers, and now that company is so successful that I've regretfully had to put my photography business on hold indefinitely. You can find out more about this change on my blog.

If you're looking for a photographer, I'm still in touch with many amazing photographers and would be delighted to recommend them to you if you contact me.

Preview of Hannah & Michael's wedding at Magdalene College, Cambridge

Posted in Wedding Photography at 11:41 on 12/08/2010

What an exciting summer of weddings this is turning out to be. Hannah & Michael's wedding at Magdalene College in Cambridge was no exception, with lots of firsts for me: my first bride arriving by punt, my first Jewish wedding ceremony, my first outdoor wedding ceremony and my first groom wearing white. I've photographed Royal Navy weddings before, but the US Navy dress uniform is definitely more suitable for summer weather than our dark blue uniforms!

More pictures from Hannah & Michael's wedding at Magdalene College will follow next week, but here's one that caught my eye to whet your appetite.

Penny & Garry's wedding at Cambridge Register Office

Posted in Wedding Photography at 18:27 on 10/08/2010

I love photographing weddings of all shapes and sizes, and the variety of wedding plans and locations that I photograph is a big part of the fun of the job. Penny & Garry got married at the Shire Hall register office in Cambridge, then took their guests to The Galleria restaurant for their wedding reception and - in a first for me - then went on a chauffeured punt tour of the river Cam.

I can't offer a good weather guarantee to all of my clients, but it's amazing how often the rain clears up at just the right moment:

Syon House wedding photographs: Jim & Michaela's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 15:37 on 05/08/2010

I photographed my first wedding at Syon Park last year and loved the place, so it was a pleasure to return to Syon House for Jim & Michaela's wedding. I'm not sure whether Richmond is technically part of London or Surrey (the distinctions are a bit tricky for someone who lives outside the M25) but Syon House is a beautiful venue in a lovely part of the world.

I'll post more images from Michaela & Jim's wedding at Syon House next week, but for now here's a shot of their first dance that caught my eye.

Cambridge punting photos: Penny & Garry's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 14:28 on 04/08/2010

I've been punting on the job before, but never at a wedding. Penny and Garry's wedding in Cambridge included all sorts of entertainment for their guests, but a guided tour of the river Cam on a small fleet of punts was definitely the photographic highlight.

I'm a semi-competent punter myself, but with the amount of traffic on the river it was a good thing that we had professional punt chauffeurs!

As a quick PS related to the pictures from last year's Cambridge Film Festival that I linked to at the beginning of this post, I've finally managed to watch Remi Bezancon's The First Day of the Rest of Your Life. It's wonderful, both stylish and poignant. And the man can punt, too.

Cambridge photographer: Jo & Dan's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 16:09 on 02/08/2010

Although I enjoy photographing weddings all over the country, living in Cambridge means that I get to work in lots of lovely venues. I photograph a lot of weddings at Cambridge colleges, of which Downing College is one of my favourites. With so much gorgeous sandstone and enormous grounds right in the centre of Cambridge, it looks fantastic on a bright and sunny day. Which, coincidentally, is what Jo & Dan had for their wedding there.

The day started for me in nearby Histon with the bridal preparations:

The father of the bride had a much cooler camera than my pair of digital SLRs:

There's a first time for everything, including having the Stig as the chauffeur:
