"An image takes a moment to capture but the memory lasts a lifetime." Phil Rogers.
Looking forward to your special day? What an exciting time, the run up to the wedding, writing the invitations, buying the rings, dresses, hiring or buying the suits, planning your honeymoon etc., the list goes on.
You will have worries, we all do. "Will it rain on my wedding day?" "Will it be too hot?" And so it goes on. If it rains, I will always find a suitable location for your photographs to be taken indoors and make them look just as good as if they were taken outside in the sunshine. A bit of cloud though makes for better images outside as people aren't squinting in the bright sunshine.
I have been known to stand in the rain, camera in one hand and brolley in the other while all the guests were on the hotel veranda in the dry and I nailed the group shot. There is always a plan X!
No matter how trivial you might think your worries are, I'm always at the end of a phone, e mail or I can even come round to your home to talk to you and hopefully alleviate your worries.
My tagline is "Time to Capture your Memories" and here is a quote from one of my clients:
"We got our memory stick today, love the way it is presented. We can now relive the day through your wonderful photos. You certainly do capture memories. Thank you so much xx."
You may have looked at other wedding photographer's websites and seen that they offer different types of photography as well as weddings such as portraits, commission work, newborn etc.
This is where I'm different as I only offer one type of photography and that is wedding photography. Why? Purely because my aim is to make your day special, unique and above all, fun and I couldn't do this if I was doing other types of photography as well.
I only offer two wedding collections as the most important thing to me is photographing your special day and presenting you with a set of images you can look back on and remember your wedding day for years to come with happiness.
Remember, you are buying my time, experience and knowledge so my aim is to be with you from bride and/or groom preparation up until a time that suits you.
I can shoot in a style that suits your particular requirements, whether it be formal, documentary, candid, a mixture of all three or as one bride said: "I want quirky images!"

I will cover anywhere within a 50 mile radius of Rhos on Sea at no extra cost, after that, mileage charges at 45p per mile will apply. If the venue is over 100 miles away within mainland UK, then accommodation charges will also apply. I don't expect a 5* hotel, just somewhere clean and tidy with B&B included.
For destination weddings, i.e., outside mainland UK, wedding collections prices will be the same but travel/accommodation charges will also apply. Travel charges include but is not limited to, mileage, road tolls, rail fares, flights, ferries and any transfer charges including taxis. Again, I don't expect a 5* hotel, just somewhere clean and tidy with B&B included.
