It all started in the jungles of borneo…
In 2008, it was the last day of a full on adventure travelling and photographing the world together. Lisa and I were sat in hammocks chatting about what fantastic journey we could take next…
…and this is the exact moment we decided to start Sugarbird Photography.
The last 13 years have been the most incredible journey and I have photographed over 300 weddings across the UK, Italy, Croatia and international destinations across the world.
We also made two humans who bring so much happiness and laughter to life and make everything all that more beautiful.

OK. I guess it's a given I love photography after 12 years photographing weddings professionally. I won't bore you with all of that… so, who am I and what am I into?
Travel. running, my adorable sheepdog, 90's rave, skateboarding. a great party, seriously good coffee & I spend a lot of my time in nature wild camping & enjoying the great outdoors.
Photography is my true passion and I have the greatest job ever!
