Stunning photography and excellent service
Nigel was our wedding photographer in October. He was very friendly and professional, and really knew his stuff. We now have over a thousand beautiful images that perfectly capture how our day went - he actually got the low res images back to us for a first look within two days! Very impressed.

Without doubt one of Dorset’s finest photographers
From the start of the day Nigel put us all at ease, getting everyone into place to take our fantastic wedding photos. Always relaxed and happy to go with the flow. The years of experience clearly show as he worked with our guests and children. We definitely made the right choice with Nigel capturing our wonderful day.

Captured our happily ever after perfectly!
I met Nigel at a wedding show about two years before our wedding. I had an idea of exactly the style of photographs I wanted, and looking through his portfolio I knew he could achieve this. Nigel is such an amazing photographer, and captured our September 2018 wedding perfectly. I felt so comfortable with Nigel, neither myself or my husband love posing for photos, but we had a pre-wedding shoot which helped us to get used to being in front of the camera and feel less awkward on the day. I would recommend Nigel 100%, his experience is exactly what you need to ensure you get your day captured exactly as you wish. Thank you so much for the most amazing photographs which we will cherish forever.
