J & Anna, Wedding Photography, 2013

J and Anna are two very good friends of mine. They’re almost family. Last year, they were engaged and married. I am so thankful to have been part of their fantastic day.

2013 Summer Weddings

One of the pleasures – and challenges – of working as a freelance photographer is the wedding season. I’ve blogged about it in the past, but this summer in London has provided a number of unmissable opportunities to photograph lovely couples. Here are some of my favourite shots.

Raf and Melinda, or, “An engagement in Paris”

I have a terrible memory and I struggle to keep a journal. I’ve therefore become somewhat reliant on meticulously labelled digital photo albums. They’re a memory aid.

It gives me great pleasure to share this aid with others: capturing their present, which will become their past, for their future.

Raf and Melinda are very good friends of mine who recently asked if I would take their engagement photos. I was more than happy to oblige.

National Geographic Traveller Photography Competition 2013

A few months ago I entered into National Geographic Traveller’s 2013 photography competition.

The competition is split into a number of categories, including specific themes such as colour, action, faces, rural and urban. I selected the shot below and entered it into the urban category. I was recently informed by the editorial staff at the magazine that the photograph had won its category. I’m delighted to see the shot in print, and grateful to National Geographic Traveller’s judges for choosing it. I’m also very grateful to Isabelle – who kindly let me take her portrait, despite knowing nothing about me.
