Coronavirus (CORONA-19)

If you’re in the unfortunate position of having to postpone your wedding until 2021 and struggling to find a wedding photographer I have availability and am holding current prices. I already offer a discount to NHS staff and armed forces personnel but am extending this to all key workers for 2021.

relaxed and natural documentary style wedding photography

I am a Sudbury, Suffolk based photographer who photographs weddings in a reportage style in Suffolk and Essex.

My aim is to provide you with wedding photographs that tell the story of your day, from preparation through to last dance. I capture the day in a documentary (also known as reportage) style, my aim is to blend in and observe rather than interrupt. For much of the day you won’t even notice me. We can of course take time out for family groups and bride and groom portraits, but they are by no means compulsory. I cover weddings in Suffolk and Essex but am always happy to travel.

The best photographs are taken when you’re relaxed and having fun. I don’t shine big lights in your face and definitely won’t ask you to say cheese!

Let's talk about your big day
