DO YOU HATE HAVING YOUR PHOTO TAKEN? 

It’s no surprise if you do – people in the UK, especially women, have one of the lowest levels of positive body image in the world. Even if you are a selfie queen, you probably hate people taking your photo. Here’s the conundrum: 

YOU STILL WANT STUNNING PHOTOGRAPHS OF YOU ON YOUR WEDDING DAY!

There are many different photographers with different styles of working – in fact you will probably have looked at a lot of beautiful images. One of the main reasons that people love to have me as their photographer is that I make people feel comfortable and able to be natural around me. In this way, I can capture you and your partner in a natural beauty like you have never seen before.

About Me

I am extremely passionate about helping couples enjoy their wedding day. I have a very relaxed style, but work extremely hard, making sure that you feel comfortable on the most important day of your life, whilst getting images that make you smile and glow. 

Everything that I do is aimed at making sure that you feel comfortable, whether it is a relaxed style of posing, or candid photos where people don't even know that I am taking them.

A NOTE FROM A BRIDE

"JESSE DID THE PHOTOS OF OUR WEDDING BACK IN JULY THIS YEAR AND WAS SO PROFESSIONAL BUT APPROACHABLE AT THE SAME TIME. LIKE MOST PEOPLE WE’RE NOT THE MOST COMFORTABLE WITH HAVING OUR PHOTOS TAKEN AND WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE SPENT MOST OF THE DAY WITH OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY RATHER THAN POSING ENDLESSLY. WITH THE HELP OF JESSE WE MANAGED TO HAVE THIS WHILST STILL GETTING LOADS OF AMAZING AND NATURAL PHOTOS TOO. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE GETTING MARRIED OR IN NEED OF A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR ANY OTHER REASON AS HE’S EASY TO TALK TO AND REALLY UNDERSTANDS WHAT YOU WANT FROM YOUR DAY."

The Essence Of You

I believe in promoting a positive body image. So I will not change the size you are, but make sure that I show how beautiful you are with the shape that you have.

I get asked a lot about looking slimmer, changing bits about your bodies and Photoshopping. This is because society tells us, especially women, that we are not good enough, that you need to change. In 2016, Dove did a report and found that British women have one of the lowest scores in the world with only 20% saying they are happy with the way that they look. 

With the right poses, the right photographer and an open dialogue about your concerns, I will make sure that I alleviate your concerns without the need for heavy Photoshop work. Of course I have strong skills, so if specific images need a tweak, I am happy to do it so that you are happy with your images. But in reality, my brides are all different and all beautiful, and so I get very few requests for editing. 

Become one of my brides, and I will show you how beautiful you are.
