About Me

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN BOURNEMOUTH – what you need to know about me

I’m a wedding photographer in Bournemouth, creating beautiful wedding photography with couples not just in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas such as PooleWimborne and Christchurch but across Dorset, Hampshire and beyond. I’m a recommended wedding photographer for Beach Weddings Bournemouth, having photographed many happy couples enjoying their wedding on Bournemouth beach. In addition, I’m delighted to be the recommended wedding photographer for the Hotel du Vin in Poole, and a recommended wedding photographer for English Oak Vineyard Weddings, and Sopley Mill Weddings.




There are so many different wedding photography terms such as “Reportage“, “Photo-Journalism“, “Documentary” and “Contemporary” all over the web these days, so how would I describe myself?

With many years’ experience of wedding photography not only in Bournemouth but across Dorset and Hampshire, I think the best words to describe my style are natural and relaxed. I truly believe that this special day should be captured quietly, sympathetically and unobtrusively, documenting the events as they unfold – wedding photo-journalism.

It’s my job to make sure that you enjoy your wedding day, without worrying about what you might miss. I’ll be your eyes for the entire day – all you need to do is to relax and savour every moment. I may guide you on occasion to make sure that you look your best, but the resulting images will reflect the emotions and feelings of the day, creating a record that you can share with your family in years to come.

bournemouth-beach-wedding-photographerAt a wedding, you share with me probably the most precious and special day of your lives, and I never ever take for granted the responsibility you entrust to me. I’m not “just” a professional wedding photographer … I’m the story-teller who weaves all of the elements from your day and creates a magical record you’ll cherish.

I work to develop a relationship, to understand who you are and what’s important to you, and my aim is for you to regard me as a friend – someone who’ll work with you not only today, but hopefully in the years ahead as your family photographer documenting your family history for future generations. I care about my clients.


Over the years I’ve worked at many of the leading wedding venues in Bournemouth and across Dorset and Hampshire so I’ll help you, advising you of the best places to have your photographs taken on the day and guiding you on how to schedule your day.
