Cornwall based creative documentary wedding photographer shooting with a relaxed unscripted approach.

Newquay Wedding Photographer

Mother in law Photography

I'm a wedding photographer based in Newquay Cornwall, but I will travel anywhere in the UK and Europe.

Creative wedding photography in Cornwall with a relaxed unscripted approach, letting the day unfold naturally, capturing story telling of love and happiness on your wedding day.

Telling your wedding day story, documenting the emotions, your proud parents, the first look, the laughter, fun and love that you shared with family and friends. Working with you and your guests in an informal fashion, letting the day unfold organically.

I shoot weddings with the style of reportage, candid or documentary wedding photography, which to me pretty much the same thing, capturing an unscripted story of your wedding day.

Destination Wedding Photographer

Bride and Groom Photography

Being a traveller at heart, the desire to experience different cultures and countries is something i love and has always intrigued me, must be my Viking blood.

I've lived in many different locations in the UK, France, and Spain, travelling around, photographing along the way. Combining my love of wedding photography with travel, to me is the perfect combination for me as a destination wedding photography.

If your looking to get married abroad, please do get in touch, I would love to document your special day wether in the UK or further afield overseas.

Documentary, Reportage, Candid Style

Traditional wedding photography - They treat every photo as a possed portrait, with a few spontaneous photos. They are looking for perfectly captured photograph, if what some what forced but the results they produce are excellent, but for me a little staged.

Classic wedding photography - These guys specialise in perfectly composed, with perfect lighting, they are looking for the perfect composition from afar, rather than getting in amongst the crowd.

Photojournalistic, Reportage, Candid or Documentary Wedding Photography - Pretty much the same thing to me, capturing an unscripted story of your wedding day, recording the wedding as it happens, spontaneous reactions, emotions that are happening everywhere.

I’m a reportage, candid or documentary wedding photographer.

Shooting a wedding this way, to me gives a modern feel, but with a more laid back style. The photographer has to blend in with the guests and the photography style needs to reflect this. Capturing close ups, genuine emotions first hand, story telling at its best, documenting the day how it really was.

Storytelling Wedding Photography in Cornwall & Devon

Wedding photography storytelling is what I love to do, capturing those candid moments, fleeting glances, smiles and laughter. Photographing in a documentary reportage style at a wedding is to me the best way, letting the photographs tell the whole wedding day story. Engagement and Pre-Wedding shoots available at your choice of location.

Little bit about me, I'm a 6 foot something bearded chap in my late 40's, with a love of surfing, currently living in Cornwall Gods country. My father was an avid photographer, so from a young age I always had a camera to hand.

Being wedding photographer combines my love of portraiture, street photography and landscapes, all into one, the field of wedding photography.

Shooting on the day as a second photographer or second camera on your special day will allow you to have memories from the whole day, not just the bride, but also the groom preparations for the big day, right through to the last dance and DAD DANCING...

Second Wedding Photographer in Cornwall

I love Shooting weddings even as a second photographer, building my portfolio of different wedding couples and beautiful venues and stunning scenery in Cornwall & Devon.

A wedding photographer, often likes having a second photographer for the day as it means you can cover preparations of both the bide and groom. The second photographer will take direction from the lead photographer, by following his or her background brief. Prefering a non instusive style, the second photographer should be able to blend in to the wedding party, but still capturing  the wedding day story.
