Hello, I am glad you found me. I’m Andy, a Nottingham wedding photographer who specialises in candid, natural, relaxed and documentary wedding photography, believing in a subtle approach to photography to capture the natural beauty of your day.

If you want a wedding photographer to take over your day, to shout at your guests, to take you away from your family and friends for hours on end to do formal picture after formal picture – then I’m not the wedding photographer for you, but if you want your wedding story told in a beautiful, emotional and honest way – then welcome, you have come to the right place.

Telling Your Story

Weddings are not only an important day in a couple’s lives but a beautiful prologue to their stories. It marks both the beginning and end of a phase of their lives, as they leave their separate lives behind and begin a new life together.

Second, to a photographer, I am a storyteller and believe the mark of this new chapter needs to be told in the best possible way. My goal is to capture natural, beautiful, fun and unposed wedding photos, giving you a comprehensive story of your wedding in whatever format It takes!

With my style and my experience, I will bring these special memories to life for years to come, in a creative, honest, and beautiful way.

My Creative Approach To Your Wedding Day

I believe a wedding should flow, it is a day to be enjoyed by everyone, meaning so much not only to the Bride and Groom but all their loved ones too. It’s this that carries my passion for wedding photography: I follow the day as it happens, capturing all those special moments of not just the Bride and Groom but of friends reuniting, surprise family guests and every joyous hug and tear shed.

It’s these moments that build your wedding day to leave you with special memories you will cherish.

Of course, photography style is unique to each individual wedding photographer and it’s so important to find a photographer for your wedding that fits you on a personal level with you and your partner, your family and friends and whose wedding photography style and personality fits in with your wedding, whether that be a church wedding, a humanist wedding, a civil wedding or a same sex wedding.

Capturing The Whole Day

from start to finish

Acting discreetly, I capture the morning preparations be it with the Bride and Bridesmaids preparing each other for the special day or capturing the Groom and his guys chilling in the pub.

I love to capture the tears and laughter as the dress goes on, the fun and games as you all squeeze into the car to arriving at the altar as your partner sees you for the first time on your wedding day.

I believe that these are the priceless moments of a wedding that should be captured and treasured forever; a father walking his daughter down the aisle, the moment you say ‘I do’ and the joyous celebration as you walk back down the aisle hand in hand.

Moments Matter. Real Life. People Being People.

These are what that I firmly believe in, moments that happen naturally and not staged – you will look back on these moments and you will remember the moment, not the pose or position you were put in. I believe In shooting the wedding from the inside out, to shoot as a friend and a guest; this helps me capture the story of your special day, show you the fun, emotion and great times you, your family and friends had. I don’t believe in hiding and shooting from distance, the Sony Alpha System allows me to be close to the action without impacting on your day.

I work hard to provide timeless, reportage photography, focusing on participation and observation – and I promise not to have you running through cornfields or doing piggybacks!
