Hello, I’m Az and I’ve been photographing weddings in West Sussex, Hampshire, Dorset, and the New Forest since my twenties. and moved from The New Forest to Chichester in November 2020 during Lockdown 2.0. I feel extremely lucky to be doing what I enjoy for a living and I’m very happy to be working in such a beautiful part of the UK.
I was born in Hampshire and have three brothers and one sister. I’ve been a vegetarian for about 20 years and apart from photography, my biggest love is music. My favourites are Neil Young, David Bowie, and Joni Mitchell. I also listen to as much new music as I can. At the moment I’m listening to Karen O, Frank Ocean, Lykke Li and Courtney Barnett.
I have one daughter called Millie who is 22 years old. I love to cook especially Indian & Thai meals. I’m certain that I would have trained to be a chef if I wasn’t a photographer.
I passed my motorcycle test in 2018 and It was the best thing I’ve done for myself and one day I hope to ride through down to Italy. I’ve never been! I love to travel just like everyone else, and in 2018 my partner and I spent a month travelling across Japan. It really was a dream come true.
I’ve been with my partner Tiff for over 8 years and can’t imagine a world without her. Life has thrown some crap at us both but we still manage to laugh and get through it all.
I’m a romantic and have been known to get emotional at weddings. It’s life in one day and I love to photograph as many moments throughout a wedding day as I can. It’s a beautiful thing to be part of and I get a front row seat every time.
