The life of a wedding photographer
Hi, I’m Leo,
I’m a wedding photographer who lives in the beautiful county of Cornwall. I live with my family in the Cathedral city of Truro and have been a professional photographer since 1997.
I have lived in the north and midlands of the fair country of England before eventually settling in Cornwall. Here I have started a family, lectured in Fashion Photography at Falmouth University and pursued my passion of wedding photography.
My style of photography was born from a career in photojournalism and eventual role as photo editor for Sidewalk magazine. This was an action sports publication put together at a London publishing house. I travelled around the globe, creating stories based around the many personalities in the subculture of skateboarding. I learnt to observe narratives unfolding from in amongst the protagonists. Above all, It is this that influences my wedding photography today.
My methodology for weddings is simple: I won’t get in your way. Therefore, I will let the day flow and document the moments that happen spontaneously. I won’t ask you or your guests to pose. Those laughs, tears of joy, hugs, kisses, confetti throwing, champagne-cork popping, cake cutting, first dancing, register signing, saying I doing, welly wanging* … capturing these moments in time is what I love to do and it gives me a sense of fulfilment that can’t be matched.
When I am not shooting or editing, then I can be found on the beach with my family or surfing, skateboarding, cycling, swimming or running. I love running so much I once ran from John O’Groats to Lands End!
On the subject of running, I love to travel and am available to photography weddings or elopements anywhere and everywhere.
Whatever your wedding plans, I am excited to hear your ideas so please get in touch!
*(yes there was welly wanging at the last wedding I photographed)
