Awesome, I was hoping you would pop by this page! You’ve done just the right thing as it’s so important to get to you know your wedding photographer. You’ll be spending quite a lot of time with your photographer, both before and during the wedding. Therefore, you’ve got to make sure you like them! I’ve put together this page so that you can get to know me, my life and my business a little better. You never know, it may even give you a great starting point if you decide to get in touch!

Starting from the beginning, I grew up in Brussels and moved over to England when I was 15. Most people wouldn’t guess I’m a Belgian man so it’s a fun fact I like to pull out when someone is in need of a French speaker! University then drew me to Canterbury where I met my wife Bethany. We settled here after we graduated and are now enjoying our newly-wed life. It was Bethany who bought me my very first professional camera (which will forever remain amongst my ever growing camera collection) and, from the beginning, she’s been the one that has encouraged me to follow my dream of being a photographer.

My day-to-day life outside of work consists of all the important things in life. Friends, family, food (the spicier the better) and Superman. Yep- I’m a Superman fan and proud! In fact, if I become your photographer, there’s a good chance you’ll see my Superman cufflinks on your wedding day! Throw in Crossfit, music and travel and you’ve pretty much got me summed up as a person- nice to meet you!

And then there’s photography- let’s not forget about that! You could argue that I was destined to become a photographer. My parents worked at Canon so I like to think it’s in my DNA. I’m also a firm believer in marriage so consider it an absolute privilege to be a wedding photographer. For me, there are few things more exciting than documenting the union of two people who love each other.

It would be great to get to know you as well so please do get in touch if you haven’t already. Whether you want to know more about my style, ask me about my pricing or tell me your opinion of Batman vs. Superman- I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
