My Story

Life's not about where you are but who you're with.

Hi, I'm Phil, the one behind the camera.

I've been best described as relaxed, fun, down to earth & really easy to get along with.

Based in sunny Lytham St Annes I was blessed growing up by the seaside. I'm a father first to the little legend Chloe Lou and I guess you could say she's the one responsible for my photography. This little lady gave me a such an appreciation for life, looking at it completely different and realising constantly that the moments that are always happening wont ever be repeated to embrace everyone of them! With that I decided I wanted to ensure I document as many of those moments and soon realised the value of it not just for myself but for everyone else I was photographing. Very quickly it became apparent people enjoyed what I did and the ball started rolling with me becoming a wedding photographer.

I LOVE to travel and have visited many countries all over the globe including backpacking through Australia and Thailand meeting many diverse cultures and people. This has also helped considerably in me being able to adapt and connect with people seeing and anticipating moments before they happen, looking for the moments between the moments.

Travelling truly taught me that life's not about where you're at but who you're with. Add this element to your perfect wedding venue and magic happens! Stories unfold, moments are always happening everywhere and I simply love to capture them for my couples. I truly believe the people you're surrounded by help tell your tale of life.

My style is best described as reportage/documentary or journalistic (lots of buzz words you'll no doubt have heard.) My approach is to give as minimal direction on your wedding day as possible, to tell the story of what happened and how, I believe this is the best type of photography and gives my couples authentic images. I'm not one for taking you and your partner away for portrait sessions that last hours just a short period here and there throughout the day. I look to create unique, modern & timeless images for you both keeping it fun and relaxed (believe me I know it can be un-nerving being photographed.) I want to create a time capsule that you can open up look through and not just visualise but relive those feelings on your wedding day.

The promise I make to myself for every wedding I capture is to ensure I don't just show how it looked but equally as important if not more so, how it felt!
