I love photographing people being themselves and having fun. I have a relaxed approach and like to keep it simple, so rather than direct the action, my natural documentary style is perfect to capture and preserve special moments.

The style of photography is known as many things, natural, reportage, photojournalism and documentary.  It’s perhaps more commonly known as candid, but that doesn’t mean you’ll find me lurking in the shadows with a huge telephoto lens.  I keep it simple and use modern cameras with smaller lenses and mingle in often un-noticed, observing and capturing.

As an inclusive extra, I also produce a photo film which provides a lovely way for you to share your day with family and friends.  Some photo film examples are further down this page.




"Alex, I really don't know where to begin. We are blown away with the pictures. I cried opening the USB, what a lovely thought. It was presented so beautifully, a real keepsake. We then watched the video twice and cried lots. Then we went through all the photos and cried again. You captured us and our day perfectly. We can't thank you enough."

"OMG Alex they are absolutely amazing!! Thank you sooo much, I love them! You were very professional and made us both feel at ease, especially my 6 year old son who would prefer to be playing! I'm extremely pleased with the pictures. You've made them look natural and I will certainly be recommending you to friends and family!"

"We had our wedding and had Alex take his amazing pictures, we had amazing day. Alex was brilliant, we talked about what we wanted and nothing was too much trouble. He made everyone comfortable while getting ready. The overall day was amazing, the pictures were breathtaking and James and myself couldn’t be more happy of the amazing end results"
