This is me, I’m holding a camera so you know I’m a photographer.

Hi, I’m Sandy, I live in Bristol with my wife and two cats Bitmap & Pixel.

I’m a massive photography geek, I love looking at any location and working out where best to put myself or my subjects so they look great. I’m really into learning new camera tricks to create surprising effects and gorgeous pictures.

Literally everywhere I go, I’m looking at what would make the best shot, I can’t help it, once you learn it, it’s how you see the world.

Bright, colourful photos

I love bright and colourful photos, because for me, that’s what weddings are all about – it reflects the joy of the day. I know dark and moody is totally on trend right now, but that just doesn’t scream joy to me. I try to edit my photos in a timeless classic kind of way, the last thing I want is for you to look back at your wedding photos and be like ‘Ugh, they are so 2022!’

I’m qualified

As in I literally have letters after my name not just I’ve been doing this a while (although that’s true too). I am a Licentiate of the British Institute of Professional Photography (LBIPP). This means I wrote a book on my work (that took me a while) and then had a panel of my work judged by some photographers that have been doing this a reeeeeeeealy long time and know their stuff.

Basically it means you can trust me to do a good job and a big, old (like 120 years old) organisation vouch for the fact they trust me to do a good job too. So that’s nice.

I Have The Best Job In The World

I’ve been doing it for over 9 years and so far I’ve shot over 250 weddings in that time, so I’ve learnt a thing or two. That allows me to know where I need to be to get the best reactions and to create the best photos. To me, the shots where nobody even noticed I was there are the best. It takes practice to do that and I’ve had a lot of practice.

Random stuff about me

These are our cats – Bitmap & Pixel. They are awesome.
Me and my wife do this thing where we take the same selfie with my DSLR wherever we go on holiday.
This is me with my wedding photographer – only trust balding, ginger men to photograph your wedding

I work my arse off

Nobody works harder than someone who loves what they do. I get comments on how hard I work at every wedding. The thing is, it doesn’t feel like it to me. I’m getting to do what I love and I’m surrounded by people who are in a good mood, having a great time. I can’t think of a better situation.

More than just a photographer

I’ve been to a ton of weddings so when the little things come up that you suddenly realise you have no idea about (because why would you know how to attach a button hole?) I’ll be right there to lend a hand. I’m organised and reliable, so you don’t need to worry about me being in the right place.

Having me as your wedding photographer is kinda like having a mate at your wedding that just so happens to take some kick ass photos.

If that sounds like your cup of tea, say hello, I’d love to be considered for your wedding.

We were worried about being in front of the camera, but you totally put us at ease. The couples shoot was actually really fun!
It was nice to get away for a bit and spend some time as just the two of us.
