Influences on my style of wedding photography have come in many forms over the years, from the beautiful colours of impressionist paintings and our picturesque Kent countryside, to the snapshots of human interactions observed in everyday life, as well of course the work of other photographers from around the world. Awareness and consideration of my environment and the feelings of those around me are significant, not just in everyday life but also in my photography. A good wedding photograph tells a story, it will remind you of that period of time and the feelings you felt and as a photographer and it’s important to me not to influence those feelings by my actions, but be sensitive to the situation ensuring the moment is true.As much as I enjoy my work I also have fun away from it, spending time with my partner, family and friends and appreciating the simple pleasures such as walking my little dog, a good movie or enjoying some great food. I love to travel to all sorts of destinations, and experiences mean more to me than any amount of material goods. Being able to combine photography with visits to amazing locations on our incredible planet makes it even more exciting. To summarise, I view my photography in a similar way to how I view my life, it needs to be genuine and meaningful, have a positive effect on my surroundings and the people I meet and in some way make a difference.
