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.

MV event at Apple's Regent St store in London

Posted in Seminars at 13:55 on 31/10/2011

I'm fortunate to be a member of MV, a collective of some of the best wedding and portrait photographers in the UK. The group has organised events before, including a photography workshop that I've participated in for the last two years, but these events have all been members-only. That's all about to change with MV's first public event - we'll be taking over the theatre at Apple's enormous store on Regent St in London for a day that showcases great wedding and portrait photography.

You can find out more about the event on the MV website as well as the event's Facebook page. If you're interested in great wedding and portrait photography, I hope to see you there!

Cambridge college wedding photos - Naoise & John at King's College

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 26/10/2011

I photograph a lot of weddings at Cambridge colleges, so I get to work in some of the most spectacular wedding venues in the country right here on my doorstop. Naoise & John got married at King's College, which is often used as the clichéd image of Cambridge. Like all good clichés though, there's a good reason for it - King's College's imposing chapel is a fantastic landmark and the Carols from King's service that's broadcast every Christmas Eve is one of the great Cambridge-related traditions.

Naoise & John chose to get married in King's College chapel, followed by a drinks reception on the lawn that backs onto the River Cam. Finally, dinner was served in the college hall, which is one of the darkest and most atmospheric wedding venues I've ever worked in. Here's a selection of my favourite photographs from their Cambridge college wedding.

King's College Cambridge wedding photographs

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 19/10/2011

King's College is one of Cambridge's most recognisable landmarks, with it appearing on postcards and calendars all over the world, as well as the traditional Carols from King's service that is broadcast every Christmas Eve from Cambridge.

It's been a while since I photographed a wedding at King's College, so I was delighted to be asked to photograph Naoise & John's wedding in King's College Chapel. It's a spectacular venue, and this picture captures the moment when the couple left the main part of the chapel and saw the early evening light streaming through the enormous stained glass window.

I'll post more wedding photographs from Naoise & John's wedding at King's College, Cambridge next week.

Wedding photographer Suffolk - Kate & Matt

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 12/10/2011

Kate & Matt got married in the village of Barham, which is near Ipswich in Suffolk. There's always something unique that sticks out in my mind from all of the weddings that I photograph, and for Kate & Matt's wedding in Suffolk it's got to be the flowers - I've never seen such a spectacular display of flowers on a wedding day. Take a look at the marquee:

Wedding speeches - Kate & Matt's wedding

Posted in Wedding Photography at 09:00 on 05/10/2011

Along with the wedding ceremony and bridal preparations, the speeches are one of my favourite parts of any wedding day. While the speeches themselves pretty much go in one ear and straight out the other because I'm concentrating so hard on capturing the moment, there are so many wonderful action and reaction shots that come up during the wedding day speeches.

Here's one of my favourite photos from Kate & Matt's wedding. This is Kate's mother's speech, and this is the moment when upper-lip-trembling turned into full-on blubbing with both Kate and her mother reaching for the tissues.
