Wedding Photographer in London & the South East providing an unobtrusive & friendly service.
Proposals, engagements, weddings – The whole shebang!
I can’t recommend James more highly. A consummate professional and an outstanding photographer A pleasure to have him attend our wedding blessing in Surrey. He blended into the event; quietly and studiously going about his work to create a memorable and intimate set of photos that captured the energy and joy of our day. Fantastic value price wise and the ease and speed with which the high definition images were securely made available just added to the overall quality of our engagement with him.
This was a review from Marcus & Kely when they had their renewal of vows ceremony at the Nutfield Priory, Redhill. They’d previously got married in Singapore which sadly I didn’t photograph – very disappointed.
The day was a great success and everyone was looking amazing especially the new bride. We’d discussed what they wanted done previously to my arrival so I had a breakdown of the day’s events and knew where I had to be and when.
Overall it was a mix of formal and informal photography. We had several sessions of posed photographs but the main part of was informal with me not imposing and getting some natural and relaxed shots of everyone.
What’s my style?
Whilst documenting the day I tend to use default style of unobtrusive and natural. I appreciate these events come in all varieties and have picked up experience over the years to be adaptive, be un-noticed in order to find those candid and relaxed shots.
I like to find ways to capture the moments with atmosphere and emotion and bring them to film. These images will talk for a lifetime, bringing back memories to make you smile every time.
I’m a relaxed and calm photographer, aiming to create a comfortable environment for everyone. I appreciate we will spend allot of time together during the day and therefore work hard to make you and your guests feel at ease.

What does my wedding package include?
A pre-wedding consultation – Its important to meet up before the day so we know what to expect from the day. To discuss where and when you need me so I can document as much of the day as possible.

What’ technology do I use?
I carry two Nikon DSRL’s and tend to stick with prime and 70mm lenses. This gives me total flexibility without having to change lenses all the time. I shoot at around f1.2/f1.4 to keep my photos sharp whilst have a gorgeous blurry background.
I have an off camera speed light (flash) to for the more tricky lighting environments. This helps create some artistic images and freezing moments when you need it.
My images are all stored securely onto a San Disk Pro memory card whish I carry spares of.

This is varied but my overall approach is candid and documentary style. I shoot low and high perspectives providing a range of creative & dynamic compositions.
