Hundreds of unique, spontaneous moments combine to shape the unforgettable adventure that is your wedding day. With so much going on, it’s natural that you won’t be able to take it all in. The tear your dad wipes from his eye as he sees you in your wedding dress for the very first time. The groom’s reaction as the whole room goes quiet, and you make your grand entrance.

Capturing these moments inspires my work as a Derbyshire wedding photographer. My relaxed, unobtrusive style and commitment to telling your story allows moments to happen naturally while ensuring they live on in photos you’ll cherish forever.

Your Wedding Photos

One of the many things I love about weddings is that no two are ever the same. Sure, as a wedding photographer working in Derby, I visit the same fantastic venues more than once. However, I find that each couple’s character gives their chosen venue a totally unique feel.

If you haven’t already, you will spend hours pouring over the details of your wedding to get everything just right. After all, it’s your big day, and you want it to be perfect. Naturally, you’ll want to remember every little detail and event.

That is why my goal with any wedding is to document and capture real, natural moments without interfering. You’ll receive a stunning collection of natural photos that tell the unique story of your wedding day, complemented by non-awkward family images and my signature couples portraits.

Reasons to Book Me as Your Derby Wedding Photographer

A Derby Wedding Photographer You Can Trust

With over eight years of experience, hundreds of couples have trusted me with their memories. I’ve photographed weddings across the UK and as far away as Mexico. Regardless of location, it’s a responsibility that I have never taken lightly. When booking me as your Derby wedding photographer, you can rely on me to deliver a stunning collection of images, no matter what.

Relaxed, Unobtrusive Storytelling

Your wedding day doesn’t start and end with the ceremony. So I’ll be there when your hair is being put up during your bridal preparations, right through to when you’re letting it down again on the dance floor later that evening. I’ll work discretely to capture your day, allowing you and your guests to enjoy yourselves. No awkward posing, no constant interruption, even my cameras are silent.

Award-Winning Signature Images

Arguably, I’m best known for my award-winning signature portraits. Far from being awkward, posed and staged, these give you time to have a little fun. I love to get my creative wedding photographer fix, but these photos are all about you. Your personality and your dream Derby wedding venue showcased in spectacular images you’ll want to hang on your wall.

Quick Turnaround

I remember how excited I was to see my own wedding photos; that’s why I’ll be sending you preview images within 24 hours. Not only that, you’ll have your final collection delivered in only three weeks. With me, there’s no need to wait for months to receive your wedding photos.

I am best known as a wedding photographer in Nottingham, but I don’t live a million miles away from Derbyshire and serve the East Midlands in general. Besides, I’m always happy to travel for a wedding. I run my photography and videography business in partnership with my wife Daiga, a highly talented wedding videographer in her own right.

I decided to enter the wedding photography world eight years ago when close friends had a disappointing experience with their wedding photos. I was so upset for them. Luckily, I took my camera to their wedding, and my snaps turned out to be their favourite photos. Seeing how much my images meant to them ignited a passion for wedding photography that I still have to this day.
