So, do you photograph proms?

So, do you photograph proms? It’s a question I’ve been getting a lot lately.

Well, the answer is, “Most Definitely!”

A prom is an important milestone of school life. You will want quality prom pictures that will last for years. I’m your guy.

Unheard of in the UK 10 years ago, the prom is now the highlight of the year for school-leavers. Back in the day we didn’t have school proms to mark the completion of GCSEs and A-levels. We had end of exam discos if we were lucky. Now there are often ‘passing out’ celebrations for Year 11 students (aged 15-16) and Year 13 (aged 17-18) from no-frills dinners in school halls to bespoke extravaganzas in five-star venues with DJs, live music and of course a lot of dressing up.

A cultural phenomenon, that arrived from the US on the back of incredibly successful shows such as Glee, Hannah Montana and High School Musical, it has quickly become the norm here. So join the growing trend and arrange some professional photos of students with their best friends and mates together.

I offer a private service for friends and families to take photographs before you arrive at the prom, or on location. Traditionally the photo experience has been to shoot individuals or a student with their date. Often this is the photo that parents insist upon! But I’m more than happy to do larger groups and make the shoot fun – I know teens won’t want to hang around ages, so believe me, when I say I work quickly. I will take a variety of both candid and posed photographs, I have the experience to capture them in the best possible way.

All photos will be edited and placed in a password protected online gallery after the prom – useful for relatives to order prints. Also the collection will be available to download online at both full resolution for printing and web ready for social media. This is a fee based service and the cost depends on how long you need me and the distance I have to travel.

Trust me to create images and memories that will be remembered forever with our beautiful Liverpool prom photography.

Absolutely Fantastic! We booked David for our prom – it’s been a great couple of years and we really wanted a lasting memory of our friendship and the night. David was spot on with communications right from the initial request up until the photos were delivered. He had no problem with a group of friends clubbing together to get some pro photos – we didn’t trust the college to organise lol. And on the day, he was relaxed and happy to include any groups that we asked for. We were so pleased with the photos and couldn’t wait to share them. We have received some lovely comments from friends and family – he includes low-res versions and a store for physical prints. A very friendly and approachable person who clearly loves what he does, totally recommended” Miss S, Liverpool.



Wedding flowers

What is not to like? Always different and always wonderful. Obviously as a wedding photographer, I get to see a lot of flowers and bouquets and I love it. Often I get to met florists, doing the final touches to a big display and like me, they want the couple’s day to go perfect. Attention to detail and calmness is key.

Wedding music – a string quartet for hire

Couples often ask me for recommendations when it comes to wedding supplies and that’s cool – I’m always happy to help if I can. If you are after something a bit more classy, then its worth looking at classical string options.

These guys are absolutely brilliant, so if you are looking for a stylish London String Quartet for hire, check out the Palatine String Quartet site via the jump. And if you contact them, be sure to mention my name !

Jane and John’s Engagement photography

I’m really pleased to be able to share Jane and John’s engagement photography from a few days ago.  An engagement session is a great way of producing creative, fun images. More importantly, it is a perfect opportunity for the couple to spend some time with me, so that everybody gets to know each other before the big day.  Jane and John are planning a Liverpool wedding, so decided upon Sefton Park as an ideal location for this portrait session.

Liverpool engagement shoot

It was a calm evening but as the sun started to go down I made sure I had some lights with me, as with full leaf cover on the trees it was a tad dark in places. We went to the delightful ‘fairy glen’, which in Victorian times was always a popular meeting point for courting couples and then to a lovely area of tall pine trees near the Palm House.

Hope you enjoyed a little sneak peek at the engagement photography, I had loads of fun with this lovely couple and am really looking forward to their big day.



Sefton Park Wedding Photography

I recently photographed the wedding of Carl and Clare at Christ the King Church , with their reception at one of the grand hotels on the edge of Sefton Park here in Liverpool. The day began with Clare and her family and friends preparing for the wedding at home. Then it was posh cars to the church for a fabulous ceremony – the family are regular visitors so the place was packed with well wishers. Also there was a surprise performance from a school’s choir.

Fairy Glen in Sefton Park

Then it was off to the Fairy Glen in Sefton Park for some lovely outdoors portraits of both the happy couple and their close family and friends. We were really lucky with the weather as the rain held off for this part of the day. Finally, a short drive led us our final venue, the Blenheim Lakeside Hotel for the evening reception and party !

A few samples of photographs from the day are below. They include some preparation and detail photos, posed couple photos and reportage photos, which complete the story of the day. Also included is a page design from their final album.
