Full Description
I offer full day packages with a minimum of 10 hours attendance - enough for bridal and groom preparations right through to the crazy dancing! You'll get 600+ stunning edited images to do with whatever you wish with amazing boxed leather photo books and USB sticks too! Plain and simple I just love photography. I love cameras and lenses and all the other bits and bobs too. I love meeting people and freeze-framing their lives. I love the challenges of adverse weather, tricky light and children that won’t smile on cue! Its what I do and I wouldn’t change a thing! I am a storyteller. Creatively capturing the happiness and emotion of special occasions is my talent. I visually record things that you are probably to busy to notice, and if you want the ‘wow’ picture we can create that too! There are many photographers around but I am different. I do my research, I arrive early, I leave late, I care and I can help guide you through any situation to ensure that the photography is everything you dreamt of. I do it all with a smile and will not stop until I believe I have done you justice. I am professional, organised and outgoing and just love the excitement and emotion that weddings and special events provide. Thriving on new technology, I invest heavily in equipment that will allow me to make the most of your special occasion, creating timeless, artistic, natural images for you to be proud to display and enjoy for many many years. I am proud of my reputation and what my clients say about me – please read through some recent testimonials if you have time… If you have any questions, check availability or would like to discuss anything relating to my services please make contact. I look forward to hearing from you!

And as for the quality of his work... the photographs speak for themselves!
Thank you John! My wife and I love our wedding photos! Due to Covid-19 restrictions we brought our wedding a month forward with 2 days notice. We are eternally grateful that John dropped his plans with such short notice to capture our special day. He worked closely with us to ensure that we had everything we wanted. And as for the quality of his work... the photographs speak for themselves! We look forward to seeing John again when we have our reception (fingers crossed for October). Thanks again John!

If anyone would go above and beyond for the perfect photograph it would 110% be John!
I have no idea where to start, other than by saying thank you so much John for being absolutely amazing on our wedding day! If anyone would go above and beyond for the perfect photograph it would 110% be John. With family members who aren’t keen on having their photos taken he managed to make them feel at ease and got some absolutely beautiful photos of them! For myself and my husband he said all the right things to make us laugh and knew all of the beautiful places for absolutely stunning photos. But that’s just the wedding day. On the run up to wedding, even with a pandemic happening, John would check in regularly and nothing that I asked (even if a little silly at times) was too much. He made us feel so supported the whole way through and to any couples planning on getting married I would highly recommend John! Just look at our beautiful images, I know that we will definitely be using him again for our celebrations with everybody when parties can happen again! Thank you so much John, you truly captured memories that will last a life time! Xx

Outstanding service and a gentleman. Thank you!
When looking for a photographer for your wedding day you want them to be; professional, seamless, friendly and fundamentally able to provide high quality photos. John excelled in all these areas, prior to our wedding John asked us exactly what we would like, on the day his advice was second to none and we have just looked through our brilliant photos. 5 star review from someone who can be a sceptic, we will be using John for some family shoots hopefully in the coming months. Outstanding service and a gentleman. Thank you John, Francesca & Jonathan

He made everyone feel at ease, especially me and made us laugh at all the right moments!
A huge thank you to John for all of his patience, hard work and the brilliant photos he captured of our special day. Despite the uncertainty, John was ready and prepared to be flexible and worked around restrictions. He made everyone feel at ease, especially me and made us laugh at all the right moments, whilst capturing the emotional ones. Thank you very much! x

All of our wedding party thought he was fantastic and we honestly couldn’t recommend him enough!
My husband and I have been raving about John the last few days since our Christmas wedding last week. We absolutely loved working with him. He made us feel so comfortable and at ease but made sure he got all the shots we wanted and the shots he knew we’d love. All of our wedding party thought he was fantastic and we honestly couldn’t recommend him enough. Thanks John, the few photos we have already been sent are stunning.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Yours. Obviously..! x

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Contemporary, Natural, Documentary, Wow, Creative.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The growth I have achieved through a good work ethic and lots of recommendations.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't be afraid to ask people like me for advice - we do this all the time and I love helping my clients out in other areas of their wedding.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Printed out speeches for the hard of hearing!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Firstly, just visit my website and complete the contact form. We can meet up for a coffee and a no obligation chat about your plans. I have zillions of weddings under my belt and you're welcome to look through them either at my office, your home or anywhere you like. If you decide that we are right for each other you can select one of my packages and create you own. I utilise software that enables all your documents (enquiry, contract, questionnaires, invoices etc) to be held securely online on your own bespoke client portal. Once booked I send out an online booking questionnaire and then, later on, a timeline questionnaire. We then meet up, usually at the venue to go through the day and select some great spots. We will also have a PLAN B plan just incase. Once your images are edited and ready you will receive a link to your beautiful bespoke online gallery enabling you to view, download and share your day. You and your friends and family can also order any prints or other items there too if you wish. The gallery also allows you to select your favourite images for any ordered deluxe, boxed photo books that I also offer.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

The confetti shot!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

The groom wanted to where the dress for a while and they happy couple switched clothes for a moment. In the privacy of the bridal suite naturally!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Fun wellies and huge white umbrellas (which I have with me in the car at all times) and an open mind. I've created some stunning images in the rain!

Describe how you got into photography.

I left University with a degree but started with photography from the age of 10 (it was a polaroid!). Capturing moments that most missed was a great challenge and I still love it now...
