Hi, I’m Carl. A proud Lincolnshire native.

As a Lincolnshire wedding photographer, my mission is to help couples like you get amazing wedding photography. I don’t do this by making you pose for endless photos, I do this by capturing the true story of your wedding day in a documentary style.

When I’m not photographing, you will normally find me chilling on one of Lincolnshire’s beaches. The rest of the time, you’ll find me in the Woods around Woodhall Spa or in Lincoln, wandering around the Bailgate or catching a gig at The Engine Shed.

Answers to the questions I get the most

I’ll travel anywhere for a great wedding. There is no extra cost for weddings anywhere in the UK.

Prices start at £1200. For full details, you can check out my prices page. Unlike some wedding photographers, I have all my prices listed on my website.

I feel that documentary wedding photography is a style that captures people as they truly are, but Ialso feel that there is still a place for beautiful portraits and family formals on a wedding day. My key aim is to work with you to make sure that your wedding photographs perfectly capture the story of your wedding day.

I specialise in wedding photography for couples who are nervous in front of the camera. Most of the time you will be too busy having a blast to even know I am there.

As a documentary wedding photographer, I get asked this a lot. Of course, we can create some traditional posed photos to keep your families happy. It’s best if we agree on a “must-have” list before the wedding, so you don’t spend chunks of your day fake smiling for endless photos.

You get your photos via your personal, password-protected page. From here you can download your photos at full size & a size perfect for sharing your wedding day on your socials.

Wedding photography is something that can seem expensive. It is however possibly the most important aspect of your day. Hitched magazine suggest that based on average wedding costs, couples should budget up to 10% of their total budget for photography.

Of course. I think you need to see how a photographer works over a full wedding to see their true style. I am more than happy to send you a link to a full wedding, in fact, I insist.
