Full Description
If you are looking for someone to take images of your day that will capture the moments, the emotion and the story of the day, then I might be the photographer for you. My idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style, I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between. Of course I can also do the more formal, family/group images when required....Nan doesn’t care how creative the photographer is, just as long as she has that photo for her mantelpiece. Who are we to disappoint Nan?

Terry was fantastic from start to finish!
Terry photographed our wedding in February this year and was fantastic from start to finish. He helped from the beginning with helping us get organised and gave us lots of handy tips and reminders. On the day he got all our important “must have” shots and then I barely noticed him for the rest of the day - he did a fabulous job getting candid shots of us and the guests enjoying the day. He was prompt with getting the photos to us and provided them all watermark free for our own use which is amazing.

I would 100% recommend Terry!
Terry has been excellent from the moment we hired him! I had some reservations about the outside area of our venue and Terry happily did a pre shoot with us to scout out any locations near the venue for us to get photos! We were very happy with this shoot and it helped make us more comfortable for the actual day. On the day itself Terry was very patient and listened to what we wanted. Overall, I would 100% recommend Terry and we are so happy with the photos we got!

Terry was an excellent photographer at our wedding
Terry was an excellent photographer at our wedding! He got a lot of fantastic shots across the day, and many guests mentioned how nice he was. We were really grateful that Terry was always available and very proactive in terms of communication, it was really nice to have someone so attentive and helpful throughout the preparation and the day itself. As for the photos themselves, the turnaround was very quick and we are so happy with the results!

He was truly exceptional.
Terry was our photographer in the October for our Autumn Wedding. He was truly exceptional. We have had a serious headache trying to choose our album photos as all the photos were simply stunning. I couldn't ask for any better photos to show how perfect our Wedding day was. I would highly recommend him to anyone to capture the photos for the best day of your life. Thank you again Terry!

What is your most memorable wedding?

A Jane Austen themed wedding at the Temple of Apollo at Stourhead. In the 2005 version of the film Pride & Prejudice starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen this was the setting for Mr Darcy's proposal.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Capture, Moment, Natural, Laughter, Love

What about your business are you most proud of?

I pride myself on customer service and I just love it when I get great reviews from couples because I have gone above and beyond to ensure I capture their day.

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

Don't build your wedding around the photography. The photography should be built around your wedding.

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

A Bride who loves horses had a surprise when, unknown to her, her mother had booked her a carriage and horses.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Right from the first contact I am just a phone call away should you have any questions, worries or concerns. I will chat over the phone initially and then meet with you at your reception venue so we can discuss the photography on the day. If it is a church wedding then I will attend the rehearsal which is normally a day or two before the wedding.

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

Definitely the first kiss as Mr & Mrs!!

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

A Groom in RAF Uniform on the back of a Hell's Angel's chopper!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Brollies and welly boots. Splashing in puddles can be great fun and make for some brilliant photos!!

Describe how you got into photography.

I first had to use an SLR for work in the early 80s. From the moment I picked up a camera it was my passion. I can't describe the feeling inside it gives to capture a great shot...you either know that feeling or you don't!!
