Going along with the crowd is kinda boring, isn't it? Sure, it might be easy, but the easy road becomes hard with time and the hard road becomes easy. Before I quit my corporate career, this was me - doing what I thought I ought to do. It didn't work out. So where others zigged, I zagged. Where some would have turned right, I turned left. For me, the same is true of wedding photography.
So what does it take to break ranks with the crowd? As a London wedding photographer, I think about this all the time; about how to create, about how to bring disparate ideas and inspiration together to break new ground and create something truly exciting. That's when the real magic happens.
That's why I believe that if there's a chance to create something new and ambitious and fresh and have an incredibly fun time doing it, I say take the leap.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? if you’re reading this, chances are we’re on the same page.
Photography is an enormously important part of my life and has been ever since I could hold a camera. It's my passion to create intoxicating imagery, weave captivating stories, and to help create the visual legacy of all of my couples.
My biggest influences are architecture, modern art, cinema, fashion and design. I'm always studying the science of light and psychology of colour, and am always looking around the corner for the next thing that will shift my perception.
