I'm Jon and I'm a wedding photographer based in Derby, covering weddings across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and around the UK.
I chose to specialise in weddings because each one is unique and special to the couple. I love meeting happy couples, getting to know them, sharing in the most important day of their lives and then wowing them with incredible pictures that tell the story of their wedding day; capturing something of the magic that they can treasure and pass on to their children and grandchildren.

Couples I love to work with can't wait to see their photos and share them with friends and family, with Facebook, with the whole world! I love seeing my images appear all over the place - I'm not the kind of photographer who is precious about what couples can and can't do with their wedding photos.
My favourite couples are fun and funny, looking forward to their wedding as a chance to enjoy celebrating their love with all the important people in their lives!

Your wedding day is just that - a whole day. Therefore your photographs should tell the story of your whole wedding, from those early morning preparations through to Uncle Dave dancing with his tie round his head, Rambo-style, at the end of the evening. All my packages include full coverage of your big day, meaning that you'll have the complete story of your wedding to look back on.

We live in a digital world. You may want to share your wedding photos with your friends and family through email, Facebook and Instagram. I make the process very straight forward. Every collection comes with edited high-resolution digital images uploaded to an easy-to-use online gallery. You will also have the right to print and share the images however you wish.

You will also receive your high resolution photographs on a customised USB stick in a beautiful presentation case, and of course there is always the option of choosing one of a range of stunning hand crafted albums.


Wedding days are often emotional. Tears and laughter are the ingredients of a day to cherish. My job is to capture those emotional moments to help you remember them forever. My style of photography is largely reportage, or photo-journalistic, which means that I photograph the day as it unfolds without trying to influence it too much. Having said that, I'm not some sort of photo-ninja either, hiding in the shadows. I like to be a part of the day, talking to people and helping out whenever I can. But I'm always looking out for the next shot that will continue the story of the wedding, and preserve a perfect moment forever.
