Grays Court Wedding, York – Poppy and Thom

"We're still on cloud nine, but these have taken us up an entire happiness notch. Awesome, awesome photos."

Sometimes during a wedding, I have to pinch myself that “this” is my office. Obviously I’m there to work, but it couldn’t feel more unlike work. I get to watch people laugh and cry, I get to hear about the stories that brought them together, the stories that they probably don’t want a room full […]

"We absolutely love them!"

So, over last weekend, summer came and went!!! It might have been the shortest summer on record, but by god did Ally and Adam make the most of it!! Their wedding at Burgh house in Hampstead, followed by the big party bash at Shoreditch Studios had it all. London looked utterly beautiful in the early Summer […]

The West Mill Wedding Venue, Derby – Janine and Thomas

"Then we opened them and were absolutely blown away"

I’m not gonna lie, I’m so excited to be getting Janine and Tom on the blog today! For a couple of reasons really; firstly, the venue they picked not only happens to be one of the coolest I’ve shot at, but it also sits directly opposite my office, it’s so close, I could throw a […]

Swancar Farm, Nottingham Wedding – Sarah and Ben

"Sam, the photos are phenomenal!"

Ok, so hopefully it’s clear that I love weddings, like crazy amounts! I love it even more when the couple have a child, there’s something about having them involved in the day that makes it super special. And all parents know you become an emotional wreck once you’ve had your first child, so throw that added emotion […]

So here we go, the 2016 wedding season is up and running! And what a way to kick it off; a day spent in the company of Kathryn and Jason for their Fazeley Studios Wedding in Digbeth. What can I say about these guys?! Well they’re both absolutely crackers, that’s for sure! Definitely my cup […]

Notley Abbey Wedding, Buckinghamshire – Victoria and Stuart

"Wow!! Just wow!! Love every single one of these!!"

2015 really was a vintage year!! I was lucky enough to witness so many great moments over the 12 months, and the very last wedding of them all was no exception. The year was wrapped up a few days before Christmas at Victoria and Stuarts big day, set at the stunning Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire. To […]

Alpheton Hall Barns Wedding, Suffolk – Verity and Joe

Alpheton Hall Barns Wedding
"Such superb photos"

Just before Christmas, I made my 2nd appearance at Alpheton Hall Barns in Suffolk for the amazing wedding of Verity and Joe; a couple who could not stop smiling or laughing, even in the serious atmosphere of a church and its vicar, they still managed to look like giddy teenagers completely head over heels in love with […]

My take on mobile phones at weddings!

"especially love the ones of my mum and dad, sums them up so beautifully"

Ok, let me start off with a confession…. since I started out as a wedding photographer, I’ve always set out to avoid being one of those photographers who will control what happens in front of the camera, either by directing or re-staging moments, it’s never sat quite right with me. I’m a firm believer that […]

Tithe Barn Wedding Photography, Hampshire – Clare and Simon

"Luckily we were on our own when we first saw them as we didn't know whether to laugh or cry so did both and there were a few shrieks of joy in there too!"

I always feel the pressure a little at weddings, it’s good pressure though, pressure that just makes you want to deliver something awesome for the couple. I have to admit though, I felt it a little more at this one after hearing that Clare (through a friend of a friend!!!) was getting emotional looking at […]

St Giles Cathedral Wedding, Edinburgh – Victoria and Michael

"Bloody fabulous, love love love them, thank you so much again Sam!"

At the start of September, I headed north of the border for an amazing day with some familiar faces in Edinburgh. It was a year and a week after I’d visited the same city for Emma and Marks big day. Emma’s sister, Victoria, had also booked me for her wedding, and we met up for […]
