I started the Full-Time Wedding Photography business in Lancaster 2002. Debbie joined me in 2009 when we met in Horwich, nr. Bolton and I continued as a Wedding photographer in Lancashire areas predominately Wigan, Bolton and Lancaster. Over the last 11 years, I have photographed many beautiful weddings approx. 300, each one has been very different and that keeps our approach fresh and exciting.
Every new wedding is an adventure and every couple I photograph are guaranteed my full commitment to them. Your images will be delivered to you within 2-3 weeks after your wedding and I am happy to travel throughout the North West and a few each year beyond.
My style of Wedding Photography is a combination of Creative, natural and fun! Couples do seem to like my Photoshop treatment I apply to some of my images in an an attempt to win awards, and more than just a standard WEDDING IMAGE.
I have even been a Royal Caribbean cruise ship photographer on their first mega ship back in 1995 Sovereign of The Seas & Monarch of the Seas.
I must admit the smaller ships such as Fred Olsen Black Watch were more fun to sail on 🙂 In total I worked on board 13 different ships and even was Cheif on board MS Seabourne Legend in 1999
