Here’s a little bit more about me

At this point I could start by telling you that I offer a sophisticated service from start to finish and throw in words like ’emotional’ ‘feelings’ and so on. But unless this is the first website you have come across looking for a wedding photographer Bournemouth, you have probably heard it all before.

Above all, I am just a normal chap, who absolutely loves his job. (Well the wife and children might disagree with the normal part). I have been a professional wedding photographer Bournemouth for over 10 years and am recommended by some of the best venues in Dorset, if not the country. Bournemouth wedding photography.

no matter what the day throws at me…

As a professional wedding photographer Dorset. My true aim is to make sure your big day runs as seamlessly as possible and with well over 350 weddings photographed, I have pretty much seen it all. From torrential rain with 100 guests stuck under Bournemouth pier, a coach breaking down with all the wedding party on. This left me only 30 mins to get all the main family and couple shots photographed and finally to a venue drastically changing the lighting as the bride and groom walked down the aisle, leaving me only seconds to adjust my setting and get that all important shot. My point is – I will always deliver.

Working with me, a Bournemouth wedding photographer..

Being a people person is almost more important than the ability to take a great photo, you are with the wedding photographer all day long. If you take a look at my testimonials page you will see what my couples have to say about my personality and ability to put them and their wedding party at ease.
