Timelessly elegant wedding photography, with genuine and authentic moments captured creatively

Hi, I’m Robin, and I am a storyteller – I love to tell stories with pictures, beautifully crafted images of your wedding from start to finish; every moment captured, from the quiet emotion, through to epic party shots. My wedding photography combines beautifully exquisite and elegant storytelling, combined with a creative flair and an editorial edge. Over the years I have honed my style as primarily observational, with a sprinkle of creativity thrown in, to create epic and magical yet honest and real portraits of you and your day.


This is wedding photography for couples who really value their photography, but without necessarily being directed or posed.


The key for me is endlessly searching for beautiful light, great compositions, stunning landscapes, and timing the moment perfectly when composition, light and the moment combine in perfect harmony – this is the the key to documentary wedding photography.   If you would like to find out more about my style, please pull up a chair, grab a brew and have a good browse through my portfolio!


Photography for me is a way of life, and what defines me. I am proud to think of myself as a craftsman with a camera, and capturing life stories is a real privilege. I am a wedding photographer based in Dorset, but I photograph weddings across the UK and as a destination wedding photographer – I will travel anywhere in the world to work with couples who love my style of photography. If you have grand plans, or are planning a small and intimate wedding or an elopement in Iceland or Lapland perhaps, the principle is the same, I work tirelessly to document the magic and emotion of your day with authentic and genuine images, captured creatively. 

 – Your wedding story, beautifully told – 












Moments matter – taking you back to how you felt on the day

Photography is an investment, one which will be passed down through generations. A camera is a tool, it is the photographer behind it that creates the magic. Choosing a photographer who takes photos you connect with is essential, so you know you will love the photographs.

For me, it is absolutely essential to get to know you as a couple so that I can bring out the best in you, so that when you get the photos, everything just comes flooding back.

When I photograph a wedding, all day coverage means just that, from dawn to midnight if required. It is your day, the story doesn’t finish at the first dance, and I believe your photo story shouldn’t either. I photograph quietly, though observation, not orchestration. On the day you will forget I am even there, so you can concentrate on enjoying the day, safe in the knowledge your story is being captured beautifully.

Perhaps the best way to get a true flavour of my work, with some of the images I am most proud of, and perhaps which define my overall style.

Sit back and enjoy! To the see a wider range of what I do, not just my favourites, have a look through my portfolio.

There is so much more to wedding photography than the day itself

It’s about reminding you how it felt.


With photography that tells your story beautifully.
