Thanks for popping in. My name’s Greg and I’m the (self-titled) Head Chef at home in Birmingham with my wife, Laura, and 2-year old son, Arthur.
My biggest hobby is music, watching bands, and I’m also in a band (we’re currently in the middle of writing our second album). I love the occasional ramble and go walking and camping a few times a year. Just to be clear, this isn’t the Lonely Hearts Column…
I’m not usually one for a sob story but my Dad, Stephen, has a big part to play in why I decided to become a wedding photographer.
So you see, Dad was a wedding photographer.
He used to photograph all the time. I would follow him around, subconsciously learning the ropes without even knowing it. From about 16 years old I became his side-kick, shooting as the secondary photographer at weddings. I really enjoyed capturing all the natural, real moments of the day. I felt like I was making documentaries.
Then the hormones kicked in and I thought ‘why would I want to do what my parents do?!’. So, I went down the hospitality and events route for a number of years.
Sadly, Dad passed away in 2012. I had always thought that photography was a hobby but with a push from Laura that year, I started photographing exhibition openings and the odd gig.
A few months later in October 2012, I shot my first wedding with Dad’s camera. My photography career had begun and it’s largely thanks to my family.
Thanks to Dad, thanks to Laura, and thanks to you for making it this far down the page.
Now I’m somewhat established, I care about natural, honest photography. I want to tell a story and show real connections between people. My aim is to create a set of photographs to remind you not only of how your day looked but also what it felt like to be there.
If this is what you’d like for your wedding photography then you’re in the right place.
