I like to do things a little differently to most wedding photographers. I would say that I'm untraditional, creative and love the stuff out of the ordinary. I honestly believe that this allows my couples to feel like they can do anything on their wedding day. However mad it might be!
This approach does not mean that I won't be capturing the important bits; the first kiss, the first dance, the speeches, family shots. I want to capture these shots that reflect the people and personalities in them - that's when we hit the jackpot of making these photo memories last forever. Not just 'another wedding photo'. I want couples, families and guests to explore a mad idea they might have in their head and this is where we find the realness in a creative way.
I won't be carrying loads of kit, extra lighting and massive suitcases of lenses as I want to be limbered up to capture everything from the epic to the unnoticed. I prefer to use the natural light on offer to make your portraits more natural and ultimately less wooden.
Finally; we need to embrace that wedding days are NEVER perfect. From the famous British rain to drunken antics on the dance floor, to aunty Dawn having a few too many wines. I want to capture it all as these are the best bits and you'll look back and think "We had an amazing wedding day".
If you're still reading and find this approach exciting then please say hello!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the price of your service?
I like to keep things simple. So it's £550 for a full days coverage (Preparations til late).
What services do you offer?
Initial meet up or Skype call to go through your big day - to establish style and timings. A pre-wedding shoot is also available for a small fee if required. I find this so useful, just so that you get used to being in front of the camera. But as I say, this is completely optional. On the day, I will be with you throughout preparations, right up to and passed the first dance. I like to stay a little longer to catch the drunken antics but that's completely up to you.

Thank you Luke
Luke was brilliant from the first enquiry, to the early hours on our big day. He was responsive, confident on what he could capture for us and took everything we asked for on board. Guests have commented on how polite Luke was during the day and some mentioned that they barely noticed him, which was why we chose him.Sent on 05/08/2020
He insisted that he was ok to work after our first dance and we're so glad that he did - the photos sum up the day perfectly and really add something different to what other photographers offer.
Couldn't recommend him more.
