Hey; I’m Adam.
I live in the heart of the Potteries with Cera my fiancée and our miniature dachshund, Juno.
I love people and the stories which make them.
When I realised I could be any photographer I wanted to be I simply chose to be the person I would want at my wedding. Someone who deeply cared about every person he met.
Following a huge moment in my life, time is now something I really care about and spending it wisely is very important to me. So if I can help it I don’t really want you to miss a thing on your wedding day and would love you to remember as much as possible.
My family means the world to me and I spend most of my non-wedding related time with them.
In a nutshell, that’s me.
Every Wedding Is Unique
“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
My Love Story
And that Juno is how I met your mother.
As a teenager I spent many hours watching romantic cinema including Garden State, Lost in Translation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Cinema Paradiso to name a few. Although my mind has been heavily corrupted by the amount of Zach Braff I have endured, I have always been a hopeless romantic at heart.
In a somewhat impromptu moment, I decided to drive almost 2 hours to meet a girl I hardly knew. Several incredible and testing years later we now share a miniature dachshund (sausage dog) and a home together.
As well as having our own interests, we share a common love for Disney/Pixar and theatre.
She said “yes” in early 2019 and after a battle with Covid postponements we were able to finally get married in October 2021.
My Wedding Photographer Story
How My Journey Started
People are often curious about how I ended up doing such an incredible job.
To tell the truth, unbeknownst to me at the time, I can now see the blind choices I was making in my life to lead me to a point where I became the perfect fit for this dream job. So I guess you could say my life was always leading here and maybe one day it’ll lead some place else but I’m eternally grateful for where I am right now.
On my 9th birthday I received my first point and shoot camera. Then years later as I was coming of age I spent a lot of time embedded in the skateboard and music scene. Slowly learning through each new experience which built the foundational blocks of my art. Some tropes from these times can still be seen in my work now. An obsession with wide angles for extreme points of view in my portraits and the atmosphere in my dance floor photographs all have features which I developed during my formative years.
In 2009 I had the amazing opportunity to go to America and work for the whole Summer as a Sports Photographer at a Jewish camp. I learnt more about myself and photography in 10 weeks than I had in the previous 10 years.
The following year my first wedding enquiry came in. My sister and brother in-law to be asked me to take the photos at their wedding. The photographs were a success and the fast paced action of wedding photography had certainly twigged my interest.
Fast forward to present day and I’m now a full-time wedding photographer working all over the UK. To say I’m happy with the way my life has panned out is an understatement. I live a dream life and it’s all thanks to the amazing couples who book me every year.
Changes in my Work
Over the years my photography style and focus has definitely been through a lot of progression.
I contribute as a member to several industry groups all focused on the progression of wedding photography as a whole.
The fast paced action of weddings was my original draw and trying to create conceptually beautiful photographs was always my aim when it came to the portraits.
Now my focus is entirely on people first and how I can get them to release the extra 10% of their personality. Realising the feeling surrounding the photograph was more important than the look has been one of my biggest learnings.
