One of my earliest memories was watching my dad develop film in the darkroom he built out the back of our old house. I remember seeing the images slowly appear on the paper out of nowhere - it was like magic, and I was hooked.


He was a photographer my whole life, and I grew up in a house where there was camera equipment in every room. I used to toddle along to weddings with him when I was young, and I can remember being enthralled watching people enjoy the happiest day of their life.


I soon became obsessed with portraying stories through pictures, and making people look natural on camera. I went on to study Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion, and then on to get a job at Getty Images - a large photography agency - where I've been until this day.


My approach to weddings is to not be a 'wedding photographer', but a guest who just happens to have a camera. I like to capture the real and spontaneous reactions and emotions of people during the day, and I hope that authenticity is what comes across in my pictures and film. For me, that is what's truly important, and what you really want to remember in the months and years to come.


In my spare time, I like to ride my bike, take long dog-walks through the woods, and have as much fun as possible with my two girls Bonnie & Maisie.
