When Hannah contacted me many, many months ago to book her wedding photography, she didn't have to try very hard to convince me: her husband-to-be is in the Royal Marines, they'd be having clay pigeon shooting at their reception, and their labrador would be there too! Surely a photographer's dream mix for a summer wedding? Though Hannah and Matthew don't…

A peek behind the scenes of my photography year! It's those elements you don't get to see which produce so much intrigue, and we all love to see what really goes into making things work don't we?

Rachel and Will's wedding at boutique countryside wedding venue The Compasses at Pattiswick couldn't have fallen on a better weekend: An Easter weekend that was so hot and sunny, it was hard to believe we were only in April! Even harder now when I'm writing this in June and I have the heating on <crying face emoji>. It was great…

Larissa, James, Ryan and Harry braved a chilly and drizzly Spring morning and headed to Colchester's Highwoods Country Park for a few snaps, ahead of Larissa and James' wedding at Houchins in May. It felt like an age since I first met Larissa and James, particularly because at that time last year, Larissa was only just pregnant with their son,…

What happens when you're trying to take photographs of two motorbike enthusiasts, when a group of motorbikes zoom past behind me? Not much attention paid to the camera, that's what. But I didn't even care, because ultimately that's what makes photographs go from 'good' to 'great', and Flavia and Mikey made for great photo subjects! We met up for their…
