Photography Style

Reportage / Documentary
Full Description
My photography is documentary style. I like working with what’s real. I started out developing a love for street photography, primarily in London, where I would find myself constantly intrigued by the city, the people and the world around me. Capturing peoples emotions and reactions to real life situations is what matters. You should be able to look at an image and feel it. To me, the images that really work are the ones that evoke reaction from the viewer. These are the ones that will be looked back upon with the fondest memories for years to come. I hope you enjoy the images and photo films on the site and if my style is something that would suit your wedding day please give me a call or drop me an e-mail.

Personal Message from the Manager

Hi, I'm Simon. If you'd like to chat about how you want me to document your day then get in touch. You can follow my personal projects on instagram and keep up to date with what I'm up to on Facebook and my blog. Feel free to come and visit me at my home in the country for tea and cake, meet my little white fluffy dog and my crazy adorable two year old daughter, oh - and bring your wellies so I can take you adventuring through the surrounding fields whilst we chat about your day!

You can tell he loves what he does
We were engaged and it was time to choose our photographer. Where do you start! We got in contact with Simon and we had a chat and went through exactly what we wanted. We didn't want the "Classic" posing pictures, pictures of my shoes, a picture of my perfume and everyone forced to stand together and smile. Thankfully Simon didn't like this either! He turned up early on the day, and introduced himself to our family and friends. You wouldn't even know he was around. He managed to capture our wedding perfectly. He has a great eye for noticing silly little things that make you smile. Something that a bride or groom cant see on the day as they are too busy enjoying themselves. Looking through our pictures we both felt emotional and I think Simon did too secretly! You can tell he loves what he does. If you want posed, ordinary wedding pictures then Simon isn't for you. If you want someone to capture your day honestly and with emotion he's your guy. We loved his work so much we have already booked him for a party. Thank you for being great! :-) Mr and Mrs Tilley x

What is your most memorable wedding?

One of my favourite days was when I photographed Shungu and Davids day at Northbrook Park Surrey. What. A. Day. It was an amazing event, totally different to the norm with continual dancing and singing all day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Journalistic. Intimate. Unique. Humorous. Unrestricted.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm really proud to be accredited by the Royal Photographic Society. Gaining this prestigious accreditation is no easy task and the positive feedback I received where the judges noted that 'I see things in a way other people don't', is a compliment that will stick with me forever.

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

Book a photographer that you like. One that makes you feel comfortable and blends in with your style and your day. Once the day is over these photographs are the only thing that will remain.

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

I loved seeing the bridesmaids perform a surprise dance routine for the bride in place of a speech, it was an individual touch and something I'm sure she will never forget!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

When I first chat with a couple I invite them to my home for an initial meeting. Everyone is welcome - especially the dog! I live in the countryside so I love being able to chat to couples about their day whilst we walk through the surrounding fields. By the time we've sat down for tea and cake I've got a really good understanding of the couple and what they want from me on their wedding day. I love to have this personal time with them as it really makes them feel relaxed and gives them an idea about me and the unobtrusive approach I take to shooting a wedding. True documentary style is not staged or forced and I will simply blend into their day, capturing the moments that they don't get to see themselves. Upon booking my services the bride and groom receive a wedding agreement, pay a deposit and then we stay in regular contact right up until the moment I turn up on their day. They can expect to receive their photos within weeks of their wedding day, and I also offer a variety of fine art print and bespoke album options.
