Jonty Howe Photography Full Description
I photograph weddings and stories, in a documentary style. I love how much stuff happens on a wedding day, dozens of little events one after the other. It’s my job to capture these little stories as they happen throughout the day. I love creating this narrative record from the day so you can look back and remember the day as it was. For this reason, I try to keep posed photos to a minimum so you can just relax. I say minimum, and not none, because I appreciate that the photo most likely to end up on your Auntie’s wall is a group photo. I offer a free engagement shoot with full day photography so that we can get to know each other, I get to know what you want from your photography, and you get used to being in front of the camera. And of course, some lovely photos. I offer half day or full day photography and both include full resolution images online. With second photographer and albums as optional extras.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your most memorable wedding?

Music Festival Themed Wedding. The groom was a musician in three different bands, each of which performed, and the whole day was like a great big party. It was in a tipi in a beautiful field flanked by working farm debris.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Documentary, Unobtrusive, thoughtful, fun

What about your business are you most proud of?

I've had quite a few thank you messages/cards where brides and groom say how I've helped them stay calm on the day, I love that through early meetings and engagement shoots I can be in a place where I know what the couples want from their photos and can help them feel at ease.

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

Don't try and do everything yourself, learned this the hard way.

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

One wedding for the vows the bride whipped out this full illustrated sketchbook she'd done of their entire relationship. It was beautiful.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Starting off with a meeting to discuss what you want, listening rather than selling. Followed by an engagement shoot around an hour and a half walking round somewhere pretty. I find through these meetings before the wedding I get a sense of what the bride and groom are after and they have seen some photos I've taken of them already so we can just relax a bit more for the wedding.

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

My favourite photos of the bride and groom actually tend to be sitting next to each other during the speech as the father of the bride and the best man/bridesmaid take it in turns to embarrass them (I mean say lovely things about them of course). It makes for some great looks and natural smiles.

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

Like my second wedding ever, we were doing the bride and groom shots along a canal and a stranger walks past with a sword. He tells us he's on his way to a sword fighting class and then, because of course you have to, we took a photo of the groom defending his wife from the best man.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Flat shoes! First off, just to remember why you're there and that everything that matters will happen. Practically just to be ready to leg it outside for a couple of snaps when the rain stops for 5 minutes.

Describe how you got into photography.

My first memory of photography was having a 24 exp roll film in my camera for a 2 week boating holiday. Having to plan out exactly which windmills on the Norfolk broads were worth having blurry photos of. My mum brought home a digital camera that you inserted a floppy disk drive into and I loved playing with it, taking hundreds of photos, on dozens of floppy disks. After this I just started taking more and more photos, buying cameras and making cameras. It was an easy decision to study photography at Uni.
