ABOUT KETCH 22 PHOTOGRAPHY
I am a seasoned and specialist Wedding Photographer and I just love photography!
I’ve been taking pictures since the age of 11 when my father gave me his old Voigtlander 35mm camera. From that moment, I was hooked!
Telling stories through great images is partially down to technical ability and many years of experience but also through creativity and having an artistic flare.
I learned this (although it’s also a natural ability), when I studied art and photography in Liverpool. This gave me a great foundation to produce the work I do today. It taught me that good images depend on the right light, composition, timing, and creativity.
After my student days (don’t ask!), I went to work as a junior photographer for the magazine Motorsport and the Newspaper, Motoring news. From there, I worked as a photographer in different parts of the world, using and building on my journalistic photography skills for a number of years before setting up my own business in 1999.
I live near the amazing Town of Stroud in The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. However, although I cover lots of regional weddings in Gloucestershire and throughout the Cotswolds, I shoot weddings right across the United Kingdom and destination weddings abroad.
No posing or fake smiles, just natural storytelling that is unique to your wedding celebrations!
My photography is natural, relaxed, and unobtrusive. This style of wedding photography is known as documentary wedding photography or reportage wedding photography. Take a look at more information on this here.
For me and for you both, your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event that should be photographed quietly, sympathetically and without dictating or changing what happens in front of me.
So, no posing or fake smiles and I promise not to say ‘cheese’! I want to tell the true story of the amazing moments that unfold on your unique wedding day.
