Hey, I'm Sam, I have a background in fashion, art and design; and I create a mix of creative and documentary photography for my couples, but always with feeling and atmosphere. ✌


What coverage time do you offer?

I've always believed a wedding is more than just the key moments, and actually moments can happen late into the night, so there is no time limit, I'm generally there until the final song!!!

What's your approach to wedding photography?

Ultimately, it's to immerse myself in the day. I see my work as a creative and visual story of my couples wedding, it's how I see the day unfold. Obviously the key moments are captured, but it's the little things in-between, how it felt and the hugs and interactions between people. You can't force weddings, and in the same light, you can't force images. So my approach is to be observant, reactive and to build a body of images that truly reflect my couples, their personalities and the experience they share with friends and family.

What do you deliver post wedding?

All of my couples can expect a 50-60 image preview within the first week of the wedding, I think it's really important you get to see some work before the full set. The final gallery is delivered within 10-12 weeks of the wedding, and there's no upper limit in terms of images delivered, although the average is usually around 600. All images are delivered via a password protected gallery and slideshow, with no hidden costs.

Where do you work, and do you travel?

I work all over the UK and Europe. I've been fortunate to work regularly in London, the Cotswolds and also in France, Italy and Spain, I've also worked internationally. I include all of my UK travel in my rate, and offer a flat rate travel fee for the EU and ROW.


We’ve received SO many compliments about the photos, we’re honestly so blown away. As if people doubted that I’d find the best photographer in the biz?!

Sam was the most amazing photographer we could have ever hoped for! Not only are the photographs so beautiful but on the day itself, he went above and beyond - he was calm, focused and great to be around! The photos themselves are just amazing - he captured all the different moods of the day and we’ve got a lovely collection of photos that are intimate, romantic and fun. In short, Sam was such a huge asset at our wedding and we could not be happier with the photos!

Lauren and George

Obsessed is an understatement. We feel so lucky to have been able to have Sam join us on our day. Not only is he easy-going and an overall pleasure to be around, but he takes *insanely* good photos. We knew this before, as we've seen his talent at work in other weddings online, but to see our day through his lens has been such a gift! Cannot recommend him more.

Where do you start writing a review for the man who turns your memories into a visual masterpiece....and then some! Sam was the photographer we chose for our wedding in Greece and I spent a lot of time looking for someone who I thought could capture our big day in a way that wasn't intrusive but also allowed everyone to relax and enjoy themselves without the fussy wedding photography I hate. Say cheese anyone? Sam met the brief perfectly. From day one speaking to Sam we knew it would be the perfect match. He made us feel so relaxed and all the way through to today two months after the wedding he has been incredible. Above and beyond are the words I would use to describe Sam. 39C heat anyone? Yep. Sam was a hero. How he managed to hand over 600+ photos and each one draw an awwww out of anyone who sees them is beyond me. Most of Sam's pictures could easily be in the next print of Vogue, seriously they're ridiculous. Just look on his Instagram account! Sam captured our love, our family and friends and the one memory you never wish to forget just perfectly. Thank you Sam. Book this man. Life choices don't come easier than this.
