I'm a documentary wedding photographer based in London, UK. I've been a photojournalist at The Times newspaper in London since 1998 covering news and features around the world. That experience of conveying a complex story in a single image or series in a photo essay is what I now bring to my wedding clients.

This is 4 year old Imogen having her hair done in a hotel room before her Mother and Father's wedding in Buckinghamshire, UK. Imogen's Mother is behind me having her makeup done, and there are also bridesmaids and parents in the room as well. It was pretty chaotic, and while I like to shoot wide scenes as place setting images, I'm also always looking to isolate subjects and simplify the composition. I an kneeling down with a 50mm lens - the low angle has cleaned the background clutter so only the wall is visible. I had noticed Imogen fidgeting, and having young children myself, kept an eye on the scene. I shot a couple of frames, then turned to photograph her Mum. When I looked back, Imogen had this perfect bored expression, and raised her hand at the same time that I raised my camera. I shot a couple of frames immediately - luckily the lens was still focused on her, then re-focused, by which time her expression had changed and the image was gone. No one else in the room had seen it.

I always use AV and the compensation dial with auto ISO. This would have been plus a stop or slightly less, to compensate for the light wall behind Imogen.

Minimal processing and conversion in Lightroom. I don't use anything like VSCO, preferring to treat each image, or sequence of images separately.

The couple love this image which sums up their daughters personality perfectly. I like to be able to surprise couples with the images I deliver, hopefully capturing moments they just did not see or notice. To combine that with conveying someones personality or a relationship in an image is the perfect way for me to make a living!
