Hello - my name is Tim and I'm a wedding photographer. I am - so I like to think - a little different from the norm. I come from a family of artists (proper ones, both my mum and dad were full time artists (paintings, sculptures, fine art jewlery mostly)), and creating emotive images is something that's deeply engrained in me. I consider myself a true professional too - that means I'll do what I say I will, when I say I will, and return emails, phone calls and whathaveyou - apparently something of a dying art, unfortunately.
Photography is my passion - it's the only thing that really stirs me. Over 10 years ago I decided to give up a "proper" job to do what I really wanted to, and I think that level of commitment shows in the way I approach every wedding. I do this full time, in between looking after the various children and cats we seem to have acquired over the last few years.
Every wedding is special to me - I've photographed hundreds and they've all been different, all new and exciting. On the day itself I'm an extremely pleasant chap to have around - so I'm told - which is probably because I love what I do.
In attempt to come up with a catchy slogan (which The Americans said I should) I failed, and wrote some tasting notes instead: “A naturally creative Hero Photographer with a lightly sparkling brideside manner and a refreshingly relaxed attitude.”
Hopefully that's the sort of thing you want to know... truth is, I'm actually quite good at this, and I actually care about it too.
I'm based in the Kent countryside, but will travel a reasonable distance - Kent, Sussex and London are the norm (the furthest I've ever been for a wedding is Sydney, which is about the limit of what I consider reasonable.)

Tim photographed my wedding earlier this year. I was so worried about being stressed out on my wedding day, but I needn't have been. Tim made me and my husband Keith feel so relaxed, and the photo's are just wonderful. Thank you so much!Sent on 12/07/2016

Absolutely amazing at what he does
Where to start.....Tim is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING at what he does! Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him again and again. From the moment we meet him, we knew straight away he was the man to capture our special day. He makes you feel so comfortable and at ease. He has so much passion for what he does and you can see that from the way he is and how fantastic his photos are. He would go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. From the moment we meet him, to our engagement shoot, to the build up to the wedding, our FABULOUS wedding day and the after care he has given us, he has been totally BRILLIANT!! We would give him 100 stars if we could. Just want to say a BIG THANK YOU for making everything so perfect, we couldn't have asked for more. The photo album is totally out of this world too and we can't put it down, its like we can re live the whole day again- thanks to you and your wonderful pictures :-).Sent on 07/03/2018
The pictures are amazing
We had Tim for our Wedding in September and he was absolutely fabulous. With is calm and humour nature it was a joy working with him and having him around on the day. The pictures are amazing (lots of our guests have given us good feedback about them) and will help us to remember this special day.Sent on 07/03/2018
