I think it takes more than just being a technically good photographer to be a good wedding photographer. You need to love wedding days and become immersed in the atmosphere and romance of the day.
I love to get to know the bride and groom and to understand their relationship, how they react to each other, their friends and families. I am then equipped to see those special moments coming and capture those special, treasured memories.

When we are not covering a wedding we love to hone our skills through styled shoots. This is a time to slow down and focus on being creative.
Styled shoots are a tremendous way for us to reflect and continue to grow.

Rutland Photographic records top quality photographic wedding day memories for couples across the East Midlands from its base in Oakham, the lovely county town of Rutland.
I have loved photography since my schooldays and have developed my technical skills and appreciation of the art for over forty years. My main career, whilst teaching me many skills invaluable to my photography was not an artistic one and it is only since I retired from it that I was able to create Rutland Photographic and indulge in my passion as a professional.
My style is to create a reportage, documentary record of a wedding day with informal and sometimes candid photographs of the couple, family and friends. I do of course include traditional posed portraits of the bride and groom and groups of guests and where the opportunity arises, a few creative “art wedding” images.
I have always been a people person and love photographing people, capturing their personalities in creative images. I find that there is little more rewarding than delighting clients with a beautiful and lasting record of their special day and see them share their favourite images with their friends and family over social media.
I feel that it is important that I click with my wedding clients rather than just clicking the camera shutter. Understanding a little of their relationship helps me anticipate and capture those special emotional moments during the celebrations. I am happy to say that I remain friends with many of my brides and grooms.
Proprietor and Principle Photographer
Our Approach to Weddings
I love weddings and travel extensively the East Midlands and the UK to create couples unique stories, whilst covering local weddings in the stunning county of Rutland. With the minimum of orchestration, I will capture your day in a none obtrusive way, allowing your day to naturally unfold, and allowing everyones personalities to shine through in our photography.
We love to connect with our couples before their wedding day so that we can get to know each other, and for us to discover their unique story. Connecting with our couples at their chosen venue enables us to plan ideal photographic opportunities, get to see how they interact with one another, and show them what to expect on their wedding day. Being part of the planning consultation and the wedding day is a lovely experience for us as much as it is for our couples. Weddings are an incredible cocktail of love, romance, family, laughter and celebration, that we absolutely love to immerse ourselves in.
