About Ketch 22 photography

I’m a specialist Wedding Photographer and I LOVE photography!

 

I live near the amazing Town of Stroud in The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. I shoot weddings right across the United Kingdom, and destination weddings abroad.

I’ve been taking pictures since the age of 11 when my father gave me his old Voigtlander 35mm camera. From that moment I was hooked!

I studied art and photography in Liverpool obtaining a BA Honours. This gave me good foundations. It taught me that good images depend on the right light, composition, timing and creativity. After college, I went to work as a junior photographer for the magazine Motorsport and the Newspaper, Motoring news. From there I worked as a photographer on the cruise ships for a number of years before setting up my own photography business in 1999.

 

No posing or fake smiles

No posing, no fake smiles and I promise not to say ‘cheese’! I want to tell the true story of the amazing moments that unfold on your unique wedding day.

My photography is natural, relaxed, and unobtrusive. This style of wedding photography is known as documentary wedding photography or reportage wedding photography.

For me and for you, the wedding is a once in a lifetime event that should be photographed quietly, sympathetically and without dictating or changing what happens in front of me.

In my portfolio gallery, you will see some of my best samples of weddings that I’ve had the pleasure of covering over many years of being a documentary wedding photographer.

If you’d like to get in touch to discuss your wedding requirements, just go to my contact page or call me on 0781 331 7310. I look forward to hearing from you and discussing the details of your special day.
