Sometimes, I wish I was invisible
When I’m photographing a couple I don’t want to be seen. I don’t want to interfere with the intimacy they share, I just want to frame it so they can see it too. Hugging, kissing, laughing, talking, holding each-other or just walking side by side, intimacy manifests itself in lots of different ways. It can be a sideways glance that speaks a thousand words, or the quiver of a lip that makes you erupt into fits of laughter. Every couple has their quirks, their weird side and their itches that nobody else can scratch. That’s why I love being an intimacy photographer. These moments are real treasures. That’s what I love to document. Follow this link to see more couple sessions.

A DAY IN IMMERSION
What's your style?
I take spontaneous photos based on raw emotions and natural direction.
How do you photograph weddings?
I love being by your side to help you before your wedding day. I'll send you a guide to help you organizing your day, the best moments for the couple photos, the different lights... and it's really exciting for me to receive photos of your dress, shoes, invits...!
On your wedding day, all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your wedding unique. That's why I decided to photograph non-traditional and laid-back wedding.
For the couple photos, I’ll give you direction to help you being natural in front of the camera. It's more about you sharing a real moment together than posing for long minutes. I want you to feel at ease, to enjoy this moment and have fun.
If you want traditional family portraits and bridal party photos, it's totally possible and I suggest to always do some with the really close family at least. But keep in mind that I want you to enjoy your day, so I'll not spend a lot of time on it.
The way I capture weddings it mostly documentary. I want to photograph candid moments as they happen because it's really important for me to give you photos that remind you this day as you lived it.
How do you photograph families?
I will spend a few hours with your family in a place you cherish or an entire day with you in your home to capture all the moments that really matter. What I want to photograph is how your family is unique, with honesty and vulnerability.
I love documenting every detail that have its importance in your life. Your normal routine means a lot, and will mean a lot more when your kids will grow up. A normal, imperfect life, but filled with love is the kind of life I love telling stories about!
Where are you based and do you travel?
I'm Manchester based in UK and yes I love to travel! If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come because I love the way my creativity is developed when I discover a new place and I don't want it to be a brake for you.
When will we get our photos?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story).
You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and also order prints!
I also send packagings included in some of my collections. It's composed by an handmade glass and copper box filled with Fine Art quality prints and some surprises
How many pictures will we receive?
For a 8 hours coverage wedding or 24 hours family session, you will receive between 400 to 600 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story.
We want you to tell our story! How does it work?
If you love my non-traditional and artistic vision and you want to live this amazing moment with me, let's connect!
I suggest you to get in touch asap to know if I'm still free and to secure your date! If I'm still available, we'll plan a Skype to talk about your plans, who you are, what you love, my approach and what we can do together. This meet up is really important for us to see if we can be friends because it's the only way I can take authentic photos of you. If it's a big yes for both of us, I'll then send you a contract and we'll celebrate it with a great craft beer or anything you fancy!
I treat bookings first come first serve with a submission of a signed contract and a 30% retainer to book the date.
