Full Description
I am an experienced photographer who specialises in capturing natural, relaxed and real weddings. I love working with people to make their big day as memorable as possible. What is your style? Relaxed. Not in a lazy or laid back way - in a non pushy way. I want you to be as relaxed as possible and to enjoy yourself on the biggest day of your life - the photos should reflect that. I am comfortable with the 'fly on the wall' candid style and equally at home with a traditional formal posing style. Most of the weddings I do have a mixture of these elements and to be honest, whichever way works for you works for me. It's your wedding day after all. My aim is to tell the story of your day with no gimmicks. (no photoshopped dinosaurs chasing the wedding party or your pet dog super imposed into the family formal shot) I believe your wedding photo's should look real and as good in 50 years time as they do now What is included? The first thing I like to do is meet up with you - I can come to you or meet for a coffee somewhere - just to hear more about your big day and answer any questions that you might have. It gives you a chance to get to know me first and judge whether my style would be for you. If face to face is tricky we can organise an online video chat through tams or zoom. I also recommend a 2nd meeting - at the venue of the wedding. This is normally a lot closer to the big day and gives us chance to scope out some spots and finalise timings and details. Then I shoot the wedding... I hope to have some previews to show in the first couple of days after the wedding - the finished collection can take anything from 2-10 weeks to complete depending on how busy I am - you will be kept in the loop throughout. Once completed you will be able to view all of the pics before I put them on a USB.

Excellent service!
We received an excellent package from Snapz not just with cost but with James and Charlotte themselves! Excellent photographers who have captured our wedding beautifully. Great with our children; making them feel at ease with the camera. Great with our guests with such a friendly manner. The photo booth staff were great too and it was great to receive the additional album and good for guests to take a photo home with them. We are very pleased that we choose Snapz. Thank you

Amazing wedding photographers
Snapz covered our wedding back in May, and right from the off we knew we were in good hands! We had lots of communication with James and Charlotte in the run up to the day which was great. On the day they were so relaxed and they blended in with our guests amazingly well, they made everyone feel at ease and everyone had so much fun with them, and we asked for quite a lot of pictures as we have huge families and nothing was too much trouble for them. When we got our photos and highlight video back we were absolutely floored by how amazing they were still haven't stopped looking at them!! The team at snapz caught every detail of our special day perfectly and we're so grateful!!

Simply Amazing!
From the first time we met James we knew our wedding photos were going to be amazing. Nothing was too much, he even drove 2 hours to our venue before the wedding to meet us and get a feel for the grounds. We had two photographers on the day of our wedding, James being one of them and neither him nor Lucy could do enough for us. James even washed the champagne glasses up before we left for the ceremony! Both photographers instantly got on with all of our guests and before long it was like they were part of our wedding party and not ‘just’ the photographers. We had hundereds of amazing photos to choose from and it was such a hard descison on which to pick for our wedding album, which I have to say is truly stunning. We also hired the photo booth for our evening guests and it is the best photo booth I have ever seen at a wedding. Such a fun idea and everyone had a real laugh. The photo album is great! It’s a day we will never forget. I couldn’t recommended Snapz enough so thank you to James, Lucy and the rest of the team for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!

Fantastic from start to finish
As soon as we met with James the very first time we could feel how personal and professional the service would be,he had already done the research on the church we were getting married at,and come armed with printed pictures so he could discuss ideas. During the day he and the other photographer just felt like part of the wedding party and it all felt so relaxed and none of the photos felt forced. The photo book and memory stick we got afterwards were perfect. We got a deal with one of their photobooths also and it was fab!

Always took pictures although not in any way professionally. I started with photobooths in 2013 and learnt how to take pics properly that year starting with birthdays and evening receptions of weddings until I felt confident to do it properly. In 2016 I had 20 Weddings, 26 in 2017 and we now I between 35 and 40 a year.
