My approach to weddings  

I love everything to do with weddings, from my first contact with an excited Bride, who has so many things to plan, through to the wonderful day and follow up afterwards, designing and creating a beautiful wedding album for the Bride and Groom which we are all proud of and will hold treasured memories for the rest of their lives. Being involved in someone's wedding is one of the best jobs in the world and I feel truly priveleged to be part of the day. I am versatile in my photography styles and it is important for me  to discuss with you, your expectations and the results you would like -no two weddings are the same and I want to know all about your wedding, what excites you about it and to allow me to see the day through your eyes so I can document your day as you wish to remember it. As an experienced wedding photographer with over 25 years  in the business,  I have gained a wealth of knowledge and have photographed at most of the beautiful venues within Cumbria and The Lake District.If you have any questions, please do contact me by email or telephone and I will be very happy to discuss your day- I look forward to hearing from you!


What will it cost?

Your wedding photography is going to be one of the most important decisions you make for your special day- You are not just buying images and a couple of hours of 'snapping' time, but investing in the experience, effort and skill of your photographer. Not just on the day but also in the planning, ideas, concept and getting to know your photographer so you can feel totally comfortable and at ease on the day. After your wonderful day has come to an end, you can rest assured knowing that I am working on the next stage of your images which is post production. Every single image is enhanced,  cropped and details highlited , so I can present you with a wonderful collection of images to keep forever. I have received 1-1 training in professional editing from one of the leading editors in the UK and understand the importance of not only capturing the moments but also how to enhance each image for a superior, finished result.

My prices are designed for you to build your products and coverage as you wish. Listed are my standard prices with coverage shown but please do contact me if you are having a smaller wedding or something slightly different.

Wedding albums, photographs and wall displays

After the wedding, I have a wide range of display products to showcase your favourite images. Like all my wedding services, these are optional for you and your family and friends to buy.   All albums are designed by myself from your selection of images and the design is then emailed to you to change or approve for printing. There are a large selection of cover styles available which can also be viewed online to make your choice. Your finished album is presented to you as a printed book with images printed to the pages.   All details will be sent to you after the wedding to help you with your selections.
