Named 1 of the ‘Top 5 Wedding Photojournalists in the UK 2017’

Wow, a real honour today, as I found out I'd been featured as one of the ‘Top 5 Wedding Photojournalists in the UK 2017’! I'm pinching myself here, as to be included on such a small list - just the top 5 in the whole of the UK! - is a little mind-boggling.

Best of 2016

Another year gone by in an absolute flash; I know it's said everywhere, but it really is true: Time just goes quicker and quicker every year.

But, woah Al, enough of the sentimentality already! I don't think you're[...]

Capturing moments like this is *everything* to me; in this case their first dance had just ended, the danc[...]
