hi, i’m alex, i love telling visual stories and have been fascinated by photography from an early age.
i entered the professional photography world via live music, which is a huge passion of mine. the extremely fast paced nature of photographing a band jumping around a stage has taught me how to be in the right place at the right time and given me lightning speed reactions. (it also means that when it comes to the party later on, i’ll be one of the first over on your dancefloor!)
weddings excite me because there are so many great opportunities for visual storytelling. raw emotion, real relationships and beautiful locations.
when people ask me if i like my job i tell them: “why would i sit in an office when i could be being surrounded by happy people running around, getting creative with my camera?”
fast forward to today and i’ve been photographing weddings for over 6 years. i’ve had the pleasure of travelling all over the uk and overseas to beautiful weddings in both italy and spain.
not many people enjoy being photographed, i know this because i am one of them. my goal is to capture all the best moments of your big day as unobtrusively as i can. letting things unfold, so that every natural smile, belly laugh or tear of joy is caught for you to remember forever.
my style is all about creating natural images that tell the story of a couple, surrounded with all the people that are closest to them. most of the day can be described as documentary coverage – but i will give some direction to ensure a beautiful moment is captured in flattering light, or with a great background.
i aim to give couples the best possible experience, right from when they say hello – through to the moment they look at their finished images.
just wanted to say thank you SO much for our wedding photos! they completely exceeded all our expectations and we are absolutely made up with them. you managed to capture so many beautiful moments that show who we actually are as a couple, and everyone including us really look at ease in all the photos; that's all down to you! they're tasteful and beautiful and I have already ordered a few prints for frames to put up in our new house.
loads of people have commented on how great the photos are and I'll be sure to recommend your services to others.

alex was recommended to us by a friend, and what a brilliant recommendation it turned out to be! from the very first email alex was friendly, attentive and made everything such a breeze.
his organisation was impeccable. over an initial skype call we were instantly put at ease because alex clearly knew what he was doing - asking all the right questions. on the day alex was the picture of calm. he knew our running order better than we did, and he wasn't fazed by the intermittent whether, which kept us guessing for the location of some of the shots. despite the weather, alex's quick thinking and mastery of his (several) cameras meant that he nailed the group and solo photos without a hiccup.
a few days after the wedding we received a batch of roughly 30 edited photos. we loved them! A couple of weeks later we had over 700 edited images, delivered in presentation box, copies of all of them on a usb stick, as well as downloadable from his website. what a quick turnaround! perfect! we didn't give alex any particular instructions on how we wanted to have the photos edited, but no need really, what he delivered looked absolutely top-draw. Many of the photos had black and white versions as well as colour, which really gave another dimension to many of them.
we can only say good things about alex's involvement in our wedding. throughout the process he has been a perfect professional and really helped everything go flawlessly. alex is a highly talented photographer who we will be recommending to everyone.

alex went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was captured from every angle imaginable. he is highly professional, polite and extremely accommodating. not only did he capture every moment we asked for but also many we didn't even think of. he quietly worked around everyone, was very good with our young ring bearer, and knew how to get the best out of everyone, for every photo. his presence only added to the occasion and we would highly recommend him to anybody, for any event. It is evident in the first batch of images (3 days after the wedding) that his editing work is equally as fine as his photography skills. thanks again alex, we are both so grateful.
