I’m a wedding photographer with a choice of photography packages to suit all budgets. Based in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, strategically positioned at the heart of the North East of England.
From the bridal preparations to your first dance, many months or even years of preparing for your wedding comes down to just one special day. A wedding day can be busy, and sometimes moments of your day pass by too quickly.  That’s where a skilled wedding photographer comes in – to capture the splendour of one of the most amazing days of your life, preserving those memories forever.

All of my photography packages include a pre-wedding consultation, conducted either in person or virtually, depending on location.  This provides an opportunity to discuss your specific needs. I can show you various examples of my work so that you can decide which style you like. I take pride in offering impeccable customer service, ensuring a seamless experience from the outset. By entrusting your photography to me, you can focus on other aspects of your special day, confident that your visual story is in capable hands. To preview the magic that awaits, explore a selection of my wedding photography on the portfolio page.

During the editing stage, all images are carefully handpicked and expertly edited. All  packages include a USB stick in an elegant wooden presentation box, accompanied by a set of complimentary 4×6 prints to get you started. Your collection boasts both high-resolution and low-resolution files, suitable for both printing and social media sharing. Additionally, images are available in both vibrant color and classic black and white. To provide you the freedom you deserve, each collection is accompanied by a print release form, granting you the liberty to print and share these cherished memories for your personal enjoyment – because these photos are yours to treasure for a lifetime.

Typically, your photos will be ready 4 to 6 weeks after your wedding day. Keep an eye on my Facebook page for a sneak peek into the progress of your images – a delightful preview of the memories we’ve captured together!
