Essex Wedding Photographer

Serving Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, London, UK & International


Hi, I’m Jeff, and I’m a full-time Essex Wedding Photographer. I am fortunate to work with wonderful clients, helping them to feel amazing and relaxed so that they receive the most stunning photographs from their wedding day.

How I Got Here

I have been chasing my photography dream for a long time. I am a creative person at heart and found photography to be the best medium to express myself artistically. 

Having spent a career in retail and owning a property company for five years, in 2006 that I finally got to realise my dream of becoming a full-time photographer. However, it was no easy ride. Moving into a profession where there was no shortage of competitors and thinking “what can I do that will be different” were just some of the challenges that I was to face.

Coming from a retail & corporate world, I learnt to strive for excellence and to go out and exceed people’s expectations. These days, I put those hard-won skills to use for my couples and companies who are looking for a great photography experience and amazing photographs.

Why I Do It

It comes fairly naturally to me to see the world through other people’s eyes. Naturally, I love what I do, and in particular, I love working with people who do not necessarily enjoy being photographed – which to be honest is most of us. By creating a fun and relaxing experience, everybody I have photographed has received fantastic photographs of themselves. Plus they have thoroughly enjoyed being photographed too.

Photography Style

My photography style is about creating photographs that are natural, artful, and timeless. I’m inspired by films and cinematic photography. I want to capture the special moments and the loving connection between the two people. 

I am also a teacher in the photographic field where my teachings have taken me around the country and I have been published in various photography magazines.
