My Wedding Photography Services

I have an unobtrusive style of photography that allows you to enjoy your day with your guests, instead of being stuck in front of the camera for hours on end. (We've all been to a wedding like that!)

So don't worry if you are camera shy, or if you are like me and look in pain when asked to smile on demand! I have tonnes of experience photographing camera shy couples and will have you relaxed in no time. After all, natural smiles and laughter look so much better than forced ones.

My services are tailored around you, because your day should be perfect. But don't take my word for it, take a look at some kind words from previous couples!

A little bit about me...

Life of a wedding photographer

I became a full time photographer in 2014. Since then I have captured hundreds of weddings in many different locations and settings, covering a wide range of styles.

I absolutely love being a Chester wedding photographer and I am so grateful to all of my previous couples for letting me be a part of their day.

"I strongly believe that everybody should get the same high quality service regardless of budget"

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my little family and going on an adventure! I like taking photos of landscapes near me and around North Wales, especially in Snowdonia national park.

I also love travelling, movies, gaming and a good box set on Netflix.

Local Wedding Photographers Blog

Have a look through my wedding photographers blog and read about some previous wedding day's that I have captured.

I have had the pleasure of capturing hundreds of amazing marriages across the UK, including Snowdonia, Chester, Wirral and Flintshire to name a few. I have even had the honour of documenting Elopements across Europe.

I have specialised in wedding photography for over 9 years now and I regularly photograph at local wedding venues in North Wales, Cheshire and Chester, so chances are that I have worked at your venue in the past.
