Mine & Thine York Wedding Photographer

WHO AM I?

Without getting too existential about it

PhotographER

GARDENER

LOINER

Cliché I know, but photography runs in my blood. My dad was (and still is) a photographer and he inspired me to do an A Level in Photography which led to a BA in Photography (1st class if you're asking). I then went on to do an MA in Visual Arts and I'm currently studying for my PhD in History of Art.

I've hit peak middle age. I used to love clubbing, now I like a glass of wine and some gentle weeding. I have a tropical style garden which was featured on Gardener's World in Spring 2021. It was literally a life goal complete when that happened but I still cringe when I see myself on repeats!

Born and raised in Leeds, I'm a true Yorkshireman. I now split my time between Leeds and York. I love living in Yorkshire and I love being a York wedding photographer. Take me to your farm wedding in North Yorkshire, your barn wedding in East Yorkshire or an industrial venue in West Yorkshire. I'm up for it all!
