about me

Hi. I’m Tim, a Wedding Photographer based in Hertford.

We spend a great deal of our lives looking for and thinking about love. So when that love arrives, of course we want to celebrate it, share it and capture it in the best way possible. Throughout my career as a wedding photographer, I’ve been lucky enough to work with couples from a range of different backgrounds, religions and genders. Each one has been magical, and with these couples I’ve been able to preserve the most amazing moments of their once-in-a-lifetime day: from the excited nerves whilst getting ready, the unforgettable toasts and speeches, the intimate moments of loved ones reuniting, and of course the final shapes pulled on the dancefloor. When you work with me, you can be safe in the knowledge that I’ll be capturing your most treasured memories as they happen: from the big and wonderful emotions, to the small details that you don’t ever want to forget.

One of my main priorities is ensuring a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for all involved, which I believe is created through connection and trust. My approach with all of my weddings is a warm, genuine and relaxed relationship between myself and the wedding party. I’ll blend seamlessly in with your guests, so that I can capture those candid moments whilst preserving the authentic joy and laughter that surrounds you.

At the heart of my work is the belief that everyone deserves incredible and beautiful photography for their special day, even if they don’t have the largest budget.

A Little More About My Style of Working

At every wedding, no matter the age, gender or background of the couple, there’s a unique inner beauty that radiates from each individual. I truly believe that accessing that inner beauty is by both making the person feel at ease and confident as they go about their day. My top priority is to make sure that you feel completely comfortable in my presence, so I can capture you as your authentic selves on the most memorable day of your lives. This means bringing a positive and relaxed attitude from the beginning of your day, right through the lights out at the end.

I’ll be seeking out the moments of enormous love, the unexpected amazing surprises and the really important tiny details that go into making your day one you’ll never want to forget. Overall my job is to make sure that once the day is over, you’ll be able to relive those precious times for the rest of your life. 

During my career I’ve been lucky enough to work with venues around the UK and despite being a Hertford wedding photographer (based in Hertfordshire), I’m more than happy to travel to meet you on your special day.




Capturing your beautiful story

I don’t confine myself to any particular style when it comes to wedding photography; rather, I incorporate elements from each into my work. My approach is fluid – I’m more than willing to gently guide you through a few posed shots if you feel uneasy in front of the camera.

I take joy in capturing the lighthearted moments, the romance, the quirks, and the candid instances that make each wedding unique, all the while remaining unobtrusive to you and your guests. Ultimately, what matters most is that every wedding is enjoyable and memorable. As a Hertford wedding photographer, my objective is to craft a visually stunning narrative of your day as it unfolds.
