Your wedding is a very special day! You have been planning it for a long time. That's why you want to make sure all the special moments will be captured. Every shot that I take isn't just for the sake of taking another photograph. I want to make sure that your photographs are captured to the best of my ability. I consider myself to be a 'visual story teller' and to be able to tell a beautiful story, all aspects of your day must be captured with an attention to detail, style and emotion.
I have been a professional wedding photographer for twelve years now. This experience is invaluable to both myself and my clients. I now believe that I possess the confidence, manner and ability to provide creative, reportage styled photography, whilst also being happy to take charge (If I deem it to be necesary), politely organise groups and direct portraiture on location.
My preference is to use natural light wherever possible. It allows me to work quickly, creatively and unobtrusively, letting the day unfold, capturing the magic of your wedding as it happens and keeping the focus on you. I think the very best photos are those little moments that last a split second. Those perfect expressions, laughs and happy tears. This is what I'm looking for when I shoot weddings and I don't interfere. I want to do something different and unique that will have that timeless feel.
I hope that you will want to make the most of the beautiful surroundings that Cornwall has to offer. This also provides an important opportunity during the the day for you both to enjoy each others company. To me, this is a very important part of the day and allows me to capture the two of you without an audience or interference.
If you're after someone who will put you and your guests at ease, who can blend into the background effortlessly to capture natural moments and who can also provide you with beautiful and creative portraiture, please get in touch.

bOOKING + CONTRACT
Once your deposit has been received, I will put together a contract for us both. This will clearly state the services that I will provide after we have discussed the details of your day.
It's a fantastic way to break the ice and great practice! It's totally optional but I would recommend this to everyone.
I'll send you some further questions a couple of months before the big day. We can then put together a more accurate timeline and photo list.

You have fun and finally get to enjoy the fruits of all your hard work planning. I do my thing.

In love with the photos Ashley took at our October wedding. Captured beautiful moments with a very natural feel, just as we had wanted! As a couple we do not normally enjoy having our pictures taken but Ashley's unobtrusive presence made us feel at ease and be able to enjoy the moment without feeling in the spot light all the time. Thank you Ashley for capturing memories we will cherish for a lifetime!
