Wedding and Portrait Photography in Peterborough That Takes The Time to Capture What You ARE Like, Not Just What You Look Like.

Thank you so much for your beautiful wedding photos. You were thrown in at the deep end at times on the day but remained completely professional and understanding at all times. How you managed to capture so many lovely photos and for us to hardly notice you were there is beyond me! We have so many beautiful photos to look back on in the future years which I know will make us remember every moment. All the photos were touched up and made to look perfect and I really appreciate the extra work you did after giving them to us. Thank you thank you thank you.
Kathryn Girdlestone, Thrapston.

Are you finding it tricky choosing a wedding or portrait photographer? Throughout Peterborough, Oundle, Stamford and St Ives you’ll find dozens of photographers, so how do you know who’s the right one for you?

Why choose me?
My wedding and family portrait pages explain in great detail why you’ll love those specific areas of my photography service. However, the bottom line is that my photography is all about getting to know you and your family and understanding exactly what you want and like. Everything is tailored around you.

You won’t be treated like you’re on a production line.
Many photographers give you a ‘timed slot’. I believe beautiful photography and special moments are rarely captured when you’re working against the clock - especially when children or pets are involved! I give you all the time you need to ensure we create photos that you’ll love.

Whether you want wedding photos, family portraits or photos of your pets I will always take the time to meet you before the big day. This helps me understand what’s important to you and your aspirations for the photography. It also gives you and your family a chance to check me out and feel comfortable with me so everyone feels confident in front of the camera. We can then develop a plan to create a collection of gorgeous photos that will be in a style you like.

Every photo is lovingly enhanced
The creative process continues after the photography session. I’ll spend many hours turning each and every photo into a piece of art. I’ll add colour, contrast, sharpness, creative effects and use other techniques to ensure your photos exceed your expectations.

Every photo is wonderfully presented
You can also choose from a range of exclusive frames that are only sold to professional photographers. The story of your wedding is captured within stunning albums that would grace any coffee table.

I even have amazing specialist portraiture software that shows you how your photos will actually look in your home, before you invest in them. You can instantly choose between different frame styles and sizes and see them superimposed, to scale, inside your home. This makes it easy for you to choose the perfect wall portraits for your décor and wall space.

Money-back guarantee
If you don't absolutely love your wedding or family photographs then I'll give you all your money back. I'm here to wow you and if I ever fail then I don't deserve to be paid. I don't know any other photographers in the area doing this, but it's my way of showing how much I care about do my very finest work, every time.

Don't take my word for it!
I could bore you about how my photography has been used by the BBC, CNN, The Wildlife Trust, The Royal National Institute for Deaf People and other illustrious organisations, but I think it sounds better coming from my customers, so please browse my testimonials to read the kind words of some of my clients.

So, if you value owning fine art wall portraits and wedding albums of your family then don’t settle for ‘snaps’; have it done properly by a photographer who’s service screams 'nothing is too much trouble'!

Let's chat about what you'd like - no obligation
Call me on 0792 358 3658 or email me at so we can arrange a time to meet and go through how you'd like me to help.

Wedding at Yaxley Church, Peterborough - Steve and Emma
28th October 2015

Aside from the fact that Steve Raby and Emma Tavener were a delight to work with from start to finish, I was so pleased when they chose me to be their wedding photographer. Not because Yaxley Church is the nearest church in the world to my house. It's that Yaxley Church is also one of the most beautiful around and has the wonderful advantage of having a balcony at the front of the church and a mezzanine at the back.

Family portraits in your home and garden
07th October 2015

Most photographers in Peterborough specialise in family portraits against a white background. However, I prefer to create your family portraits somewhere that you have an emotional connection with. Your home and garden is often the first place to consider.

Wedding at Normanton Church, Rutland - Anthony and Amanda
24th September 2015

Many years ago before I was even a professional wedding photographer I went to Normanton church at sunset just for the pleasure of photographing it. So when Anthony and Amanda told me they were getting married there I was like a puppy welcoming home a soldier after a 6 month tour of duty. I tried not to lick them though....!

What a wonderful couple Nick Jude and Emma Gibbs are. Nick must be Emma's hero as he did almost all the wedding planning.

Bassmead Manor Barns is a perfect venue for wedding photos. It stands within the medieval moat of an ancient manor house and has beautiful open countryside all around.

From bump to birthday: baby photography from maternity to first birthday
29th April 2015

Rachel and Stuart were as cool as a Cornetto about everything. They wanted one of the images to include their 4 year old Jessica too, so she'd feel involved. That image is actually one of my all time favourites because I feel it sums up my brand very well - 'fun, creative photography for families who aren't afraid to show how much they love each other.'

Having your baby photographed is even more fun than a banjo playing otter!
09th April 2015

Having your baby photographed is one of the most fun things you can do. There's always lots of chuckling as we dress up your baby and experiment with props. Or if you prefer you can take a well earned break and just relax to the ocean wave CD I always play.
