To photograph a wedding is to document the most important day of many people’s lives and to be a part of that day is a privilege.
To me photographing a wedding is to capture in images the essence of the day, the mood, the atmosphere, the light, the emotions and all the little things that might not even be noticed. It is more than ‘wedding photography’. It is a combination of portraiture, fashion, landscape and of course documentary photography.
Every wedding I have attended has been different and the photos I have produced have been as equally diverse. If the day is full of energy, then the images will be full of energy. If the day is full of tears and emotion, the images again will reflect that.
My style is informal and I prefer to blend into the background to capture natural and candid images. I was once described as “remarkably unobtrusive yet incredibly professional” and this is how I intend to be; taking control of the group shots and then stepping back to let you enjoy your day.
Please take some time and browse through my galleries and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
The stop-motion wedding video is a new string to my bow. It is a unique way to relive your wedding day. Using every single image (un-edited) from your day. I blend them together with a song that means a lot to you. Your ‘first dance’ song is normally a good call.
This can be added to any package for an additional £250
Once you have selected what package would best suit your needs there are never any hidden costs. This doesn’t mean you are limited to your first decision. There are always so many photos to choose from, so if you would like to boost the number of images you receive we can always oblige. Additional photo bundles come in at £100 per 100 images.
Firstly get in touch and check my availability for your date. If I’m available then all you will need to do is pay a 10% non Refundable deposit. This will guarantee that no else gets me for your date. The remainder can be paid off at any point up to one month before the wedding day.
Depending on what package you choose, you’ll get between 200-300 individually edited photographs. There will be a select few that I will transfer to black & white, but you will get the colour versions as well in a separate folder.
The average editing time is between 5-6 weeks depending on the time of year and peak wedding season, April-September. There’s only one of me but I know how keen you’ll be to see your pictures, so I’ll get them done and ready for you as quickly as possible, without compromising on the quality.
You’ll receive the edited photographs on a customised USB stick with a copy both in High Resolution for printing and Low Resolution for easy web uploads.
As a rule of thumb, 1/2 day would be four hours of your choosing, 3/4 day would be six hours and a full day 8 hours. I can be flexible with the times depending on how the day goes.
It would be amazing to eat at the same point as the rest of the wedding guests. Photographs of people eating are never the most flattering anyhow and I do try to eat quickly at the same time.
Yes, I love to meet all couples before their wedding top go through all the details of the day. If this is not possible due to distances then I will always be available by phone, email or Skype at any time.

Drew, your photos are phenomenal!!! We thought they would be good but we didn’t realise just quite how good they would be. They are so natural and you have captured every moment. Thank you so much! I don’t think I’ve ever seen photos that are so artistic and creative. We love them all and can’t stop looking at them!

Drew captured our wedding in Chamonix beautifully. He worked soo hard the entire day to capture everyone at their best whilst also blending into the background and putting everyone at ease. Drew knows the area really well so if you’re thinking of having a wedding in Chamonix he can put you in touch with the right people. Drew knew exactly which Gondola to take and the best locations for mountain backdrops to our wedding photos. We were very lucky to find him and for everything he did we consider his prices more than reasonable. We couldn’t have asked for more from Drew, I also recommend ordering a wedding stop motion video as it captures the day really well!

He took all the stress away and we really enjoyed having our wedding photos taken with Drew. He was so chilled out but yet a total professional. He knew his job, so we could just relax knowing he was going to get some wonderful pictures despite atrocious weather conditions and poor lighting. We are so relieved we managed to book him.
Drew feels like your friend from the first time you chat to every bit of correspondence after the day. You can tell the job doesn’t just end on the day for him, he really takes the time editing his work with care and skill to make his images the best they can be. nThe photos we got from Drew were amazing! We could not have asked for more. The weather was horrendous for our wedding and he just worked with it making the most of it, with truly unique and stunning results! I can not recommend Drew enough!!

Amazing wedding photographer. One of my favourite moments of our day was heading off to do a photo shoot with him. Was also lovely to see all his captured moments of the day that we had missed! Thank you Drew
