Hi, my name’s Alan


I hate talking about myself, but I guess I should let you know that I’m an international multi award-winning photographer (including Wedding Photographer of the Year 2016 (TWIA / SW), Best Reportage Wedding Photographer 2015, 2014 & 2013 (SWWA), and Fearless Award Winner) based down in (sometimes sunny) Cornwall, and I absolutely love what I do: capturing real, un-posed and natural moments.

I’ve also been named as one of Rangefinder Magazine’s ’30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography in the World’ – an incredibly high accolade; I still can’t believe it!

I’ve also been named by Brides Magazine as one of the ‘Best 15 Wedding Photographers in the UK‘, as one of the ‘100 Best Wedding Photographers in the World 2016(Purcell Studios), in the ‘Top 100 Wedding Photographers in the UK 2020‘ (SLR Lounge), one of the ‘Top 5 Wedding Photojournalists in the UK 2017’ (MyMemory), featured in Autographer’s ’10 of the Best Creative Wedding Photographers in the UK’, SLR Lounge’s ‘150 Best International Wedding Photographers 2016′, GoHen’s ’50 Best Wedding Photographers in the UK for five years in a row (2015, 2016, 2017, 2o18 7 2019)’ and HenHeaven’s ‘Best Wedding Photographers in the UK 2016’. I’ve won six ‘Wedding Photography Select Awards’, two ‘Wedisson Awards’, a ‘WedAward’ and a ‘Fearless Award’, which is fab, as they’re all international competitions, featuring the best of our industry around the world.

In 2017 I also created This is Reportage, a community of the world’s best documentary wedding photographers, and, in mid-2020, This is Reportage: Family, for the best of family photography.

As well as a photographer, I’m a very proud Dad to the gorgeous baby Ben, my adorable little girl Bella, husband to the equally gorgeous Catriona, and owner of the world’s most beautiful dog, Daffy. Bet you just needed to know that, huh…?

So, this page is a little overview of me, really. I go into much more depth about my wedding photography style and approach over here, and if you want to see more examples of what I do, then I have lots of featured weddings here, and my ‘Best of 2019’ collection here. My blog is also kept up to date with my latest work.

And if you like all of that, then do feel free to contact me, perhaps ‘like’ me on Facebook, or follow me on Instagram – I’d love to hear from you!
