Hi, I’m Albert and I think getting married is the most incredible thing you can do.
When I was younger, I had a dream of being in a rock band… sadly that didn’t happen – but as a grown up, I love to create beautiful images.
I live in sunny Bristol with my wife Joan, our new born baby Grace. We share our Victorian terraced home with two sleepy cats called Mitty and Mrs Tigglesworth.
Whilst I love Bristol I grew up in a stone cottage in the countryside. Miles from shops or city centres. Both of my parents were artists of different sorts. My dad was a wood sculptor, he made me wooden toys and encouraged me to enjoy my freedom. My mother was a musician and between concerts she would teach people what she knew. Neither of my parents had a camera and they don’t have any photographs of their wedding day.
Looking back now that seems strange as we were a very creative family. I was taught to read and play music, given a pencil and piece of paper to draw when I was bored and sent outside to kick a football around our fields in the summer. I was in the school orchestra and did well at art.
I’ve always been creative. Music. Drawing. Painting. But after discovering photography I started to develop a love of photographing people. Parties, family reunions, christenings. It was liberating to share my vision of the world with others and be complimented in return.
As I mentioned I believe that getting married is the most incredible thing you can do. Giving yourself, completely and wholly to one another and being accepted by them is… well, something that can’t really be described with words…
And that’s where I come in.
I live in Bristol, but it doesn’t matter where you’re getting married, I’d love to meet and hear your story.
We met with Albert for the first time two years ago and the experience of working with him since then has been completely fantastic. Albert truly made us feel as if we were the only couple he was working with (although I know this is far from the truth!) and answered every query quickly and clearly.
On our wedding day, we had complete confidence in Albert and he fitted into the day flawlessly. The photographs from our wedding are absolutely incredible and perfectly capture the emotion of the day.
