A bit about me….
I have been a wedding photographer in Devon for 23 years now. I started my professional photography career aged 18.
I own and run Evolve photography
I photograph about 50 Weddings a year, so a rough estimate would have seen me photograph about 1150 weddings, but I think it is nearer to 1300.
I would describe myself as a documentary photographer; I don’t tend to be influenced by fads and fashions in weddings or in photography.
I have no desire to make your wedding photos look lo-fi or like instagram photos. I invest in fantastic cameras and beautiful, expensive Canon L series lenses to make your wedding photos look crisp, sharp and timeless, as I believe they should.
Although I do shoot outside of the box, I dont consider my style quirky, I will never compose photos that are out of context. If you are looking for a wacky photographer that will photograph you and your beloved with traffic cones on your head, or in shopping trolleys then Im not for you.
My main aim is to document your day, not in snapshots that your aunt could have taken but in creative, well executed photos using available light.
I would never wish to contrive your day, and I wont take you away from your guests for hours.
Aside from creating a beautiful natural narrative of your wedding day I will also take the usual family photos as requested and some lovely mantel piece photos for all generations of your family to enjoy.
I want you and your guests to enjoy and not endure your wedding photography experience with me. The feedback I consistently receive is that I capture moments that most miss, work quickly effectively and with a very good natured and a pleasant manner. The last thing you want is a cheesy photographer with bad jokes, or a rude one upsetting your guests. Unfortunately some photographers need a wide berth for just their ego.
I want you both to enjoy your day, its not a photo-shoot. Its my job to fit in, work swiftly and make sure you hardly notice me
And to end on a clicheé, no two weddings are the same, and I treat my couples as such. Most become my friends and stay in contact after their wedding, but prior to their wedding day I listen and we plan together. I have a wealth of experience of weddings and am happy to provide as much or as little help and input as you wish to make sure your day is as seamless as the proverbial swan.
I’m lucky enough to work at some stunning venues such as Huntsham Court, Hestercombe Gardens, Tunnels Beaches and Combe House to name a few.
