Welcome! You're likely here because you're on the hunt for some stellar photos of your big day, and you're intrigued to find out if I might be the right photographer to capture those magic moments. Well, you're in luck. This page is brimming with everything you need to know about how I approach wedding photography, the packages I offer, and a glimpse into the process behind the lens.
The goal here is simple: we're talking professional service with a friendly twist. Think of this as a casual chat over a cuppa, except instead of a cosy café, we're online. So put your feet up, settle in, and let's explore how together we can make your wedding memories picture-perfect and timelessly treasured.
You want beautiful photos that you will treasure forever...
Your wedding day will be unique and the memories will be priceless - you want photos that truly reflect this. While most of the pictures I capture will be spontaneous moments of joy, laughter, and love, I also make it a point to create some carefully crafted, beautiful portraits. These are photos you'll want to frame and look back on for years to come. They won't just serve as a reminder of your special day, but also as pieces of art that add warmth and charm to your home.
You want to feel relaxed on your wedding day...
By the time your wedding day arrives, we'll have met several times and had fun together on your engagement shoot. We'll know each other and you'll feel much more comfortable and relaxed! The key feedback I receive time and time again from the couples I work with is that I make them feel completely at ease. There’s something remarkably calming about having a familiar face capturing your most precious moments. By then, we’re not just a photographer and a couple, we're friends – I'm an extra guest who just happens to be armed with a camera!
All my wedding photography packages include full coverage of your big day, meaning that you’ll have the complete story of your wedding to look back on. I can be there to catch natural shots of you during the morning, and then throughout the ceremony, and from confetti to speeches and right through to dancing: we’ll ensure that you don’t miss a thing.
How many professional photos do you have of you as a couple? I know that Anna and I didn’t have ANY before our wedding. An engagement shoot is a great opportunity for us to meet up, have some fun and get to know each other. You’ll begin to relax in front of the camera and get any awkwardness out of the way before the day itself, and you’ll receive some beautiful portraits of the two of you.
We know how important all the intricate pieces are that go into creating your perfect day. In the morning we’ll make sure that we photograph your dress or suit, shoes, flowers, and any special jewellery. During the day we’ll be constantly on the lookout for all your carefully selected objects so that we can make a beautiful record for you to look back on.
As well as telling the story of your day, you’ll also want photos that capture something of the magic of your first hours together as a married couple. 90% of our photographs are documentary-style images – but we also want you to have a selection of beautifully composed, professionally lit photographs that show off both you and the amazing venue you’ve chosen for your wedding day.
You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums.
One or two photographer - the choice is yours! Having a second photographer not only allows us to get photographs of both of you during the morning, it also allows us to capture more of everything during the day and evening! More details, more laughter, more moments.
Jon has not only been the most fantastic photographer but has also been a great friend to us both. Our engagement shoot was the perfect way to get to know each other and to put my camera-shy husband at ease!
Jon has been so professional throughout and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Yesterday we received our wedding photos….and I’ve never smiled and cried as much- they are truly stunning. Jon has captured every beautiful and intimate moment and we will treasure our photos forever.
We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.

Jon captured our wedding day perfectly, we were unlucky with the weather but this didn’t stop him doing everything he could to get the perfect shots. He and Chris made us and our families/friends feel very at ease. They captured moments perfectly and we have a set of photos which really tell the story of our day and I think this is what sets Jon apart from other photographers we have met.
John & Lauren
From the outset Jon was approachable and friendly, and always made our meetings light-hearted and enjoyable. It rained non-stop for the duration of our wedding, but he still managed to produce an incredible set of photos that captured the day perfectly! I’d recommend Jon to anyone looking for someone to take beautiful photos of their big day - we couldn’t have asked for anyone better.

Q: How far in advance should we book you for our wedding?
A: It's recommended that you book your wedding photographer at least 6-12 months in advance, as popular dates can fill up quickly.
Q: Do you offer engagement photo sessions?
A: Yes, I offer a pre-wedding photoshoot as part of my standard wedding photography package.
Q: How long will it take to receive our wedding photos?
A: You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding.
Q: Do you also offer videography services for weddings?
A: Yes, I offer videography services in addition to photography. Please get in touch for more details on how we can create a custom package that includes both photography and videography for your special day.
Q: Do we need to pay a deposit to secure our wedding date, and how much is it?
A: Yes, a deposit of £200 is required to secure your wedding date. I understand that all of your suppliers want a deposit when booking and that this can add up, so I try to keep my deposit as low as possible.
Enjoy a quick look at some of the highlights from Charlotte and Chris' beautiful Derbyshire wedding at Stancliffe Hall - filled with colour and smiles!

Shottle Hall was the perfect setting for an October wedding in Derbyshire. I LOVE the colours from Lauren & John's day, but not as much as I love how relaxed and happy these two were. A little (read a lot) of rain did nothing to spoil their day. Here's a few of my favourite shots.
