Lake District and Cumbria based wedding photographer
Funnily enough, it was not my intention to be a Lake District wedding photographer at all. Originally from the flat lands of Norfolk, I moved up to Carlisle for university, where I studied photography and successfully completed my degree. All of my photography at the time was either a basis for my fine art paintings, or landscape photographs.
Moving to Cumbria gave me the chance to discover the county and nearby Lake District, plus Wales was only a short distance away, Scotland was even closer and Ireland wasn’t too far away either. As you can probably tell, it was all about the landscape. However, through university, I started photographing events and I began my street photography which then led into a small job with the BBC as a photojournalist.
It was only when a classmate of mine asked me to photograph his wedding day, that I even considered being a wedding photographer. It combined the fun of an event with the beauty of photojournalism and it required the use of light found in my landscape work. It seemingly ticked all of my boxes and my life as a wedding photographer was born.
Now several years in, I’m used to travelling all over the UK and sometimes further afield, capturing weddings and telling love stories through creative photography. I honestly love what I do and I hope you enjoy my work too.
