Hi I'm Carl a Surrey wedding photographer based near Twickenham. My passion for photography started at a very young age when my dad who had been bitten by the photography bug himself developed his own photos at home. I remember the smell of the chemicals from the darkroom and the intrigue and mystery of seeing the image spring to life. He gave me my first canon camera when I was a teenager, which was *ahem* few years back now, pre-instagram days even! I've stuck with canon mainly and although the technology has moved on at a rapid pace and the darkroom days are well gone, the excitment of producing images hasn't.
I studied photography a lot through college and University and used to shoot all the time, I would have loved to have had access to all these smartphone cameras back then!
I'm originally from Sunderland in the north east of England but moved down to the big lights of London some 18 years ago and have been a converted southerner ever since although my Northern accent can occasionally be heard now and again. Think of a watered down Ant and Dec.
Lets create passion projects and dance in the rain, lets make memories to reminisce on.
I'm always on the lookout for a good photo opportunity and regularly walk the streets of London armed with my camera for my own personal amusement. I first started taking wedding photographs some 10 years ago when a work colleague asked if I would shoot their wedding. I jumped at the chance even without any experience but plenty of nerves. Its something I've never looked back on since.
Wedding days are fast and furious and also so much fun. Every wedding is unique in its own way and I love capturing those moments. It would be great to hear about your plans for your own wedding. Hope you enjoy browsing through my website. Have a look through my wedding blog posts and my prices page. I look forward to getting to know more about the big day!
