Full Description
We offer a first class relaxed photography service to our clients. Packages are available covering just a couple of hours right through to the whole day. Initial face to face meeting with a short shoot just so you can see what you think of me - after all your photographer spends a lot of time with you on your big day so you need to know you what I'm like. On the day I will shoot using a number of photographic styles ranging from the photojournalistic (fly on the wall - telling the story) to the formal (posing family groups and so on) One important aspect is that I will spend quite a bit of time shooting your guests. Many couples value this after the big day - because they actually notice how much effort friends and relations made to be there with them. I try to work quickly and efficiently with the couple on the day, so as not to keep them away from their guests for too long. Having said that ask me about my secret sign! which you can deploy and I will rescue you out of any situation!!

Mrs
Tim was fantastic! my husband and I are not massive fans of having our photos taken in general, and I felt that Tim really listened to that - he arrived early for us to get to know him, and made sure that throughout the day the photography was unobtrusive. He took lots of candid shots in addition to the official family photos, whilst also capturing beautifully those all important moments of the day - exchanging of rings, singing the register, speeches, confetti etc. He was happy to take as many shots of family groups as we requested and to take the photos wherever we wanted; we were therefore able to get some both down by the river and in front of the castle (our wedding was in Northumberland and he captured this beautiful landscape and the autumn lighting perfectly). He’s also generally a very relaxed, friendly person who takes pleasure in sharing your special day with you. It’s been a joy to sit and look through the gallery and relive the memories through the pictures. He has also provided photos with a variety of filters and some in black and white which look lovely, as we really like that vintage style. We thoroughly recommend Tim to anyone who is getting married!

The best day of my life!
On Thursday the 11th of August I had the pleasure of marrying my best friend at Horton Horton Grange! Our day started at 1:30 when we said our I Do’s then we had a three course lunch washed down with Prosecco. There was plenty of laughter and tears at the speeches then we got ready for the real party on the night time. It was a truly magical venue, no matter how many guests you had here it just felt like it was enough. Everything about the day went perfect but all because of our helpers. Our photographer,DJ and hair and make up artists were excellent and our day wouldn’t have went so well without them.
Response from the supplier
What can I say - thanks so much - what a hot day it was but we got dome fab images which are front and centre in my portfolio - thanks for the really kind comments

The most perfect pictures
What can I say? From the moment of first meeting Tim his passion and enthusiasm really shone through. We didn’t want traditional group photos, just candid shots - exceptional and on point. With a little gentle persuasion from Tim we agreed to some posed pictures post ceremony and we are so pleased that we listened, Tims eye to detail was impeccable resulting in some strong pictures which truly captured our day. Thank you again Tim - you have such an amazing talent and helped to make our day special and to give us those memories to look back on!
Response from the supplier
Thanks so much for this Julie & Craig - really appreciate your comments - have some of your pictures as samples on my office wall!

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

My own! - 33 years ago this year

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Different, Sociable, Inclusive, Black and White

What about your business are you most proud of?

Creativity - giving people what they didn't know they could have

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

OK this is not business related but spend some time thinking about what life will be like AFTER the wedding day - you have the chance to make a new start as a married couple so how are you going to make it count

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

anything that is unique about the two of you - don't worry about being someone else

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Initial meeting to discuss their hopes and plans, second conversation before to finalise times, places and so on. On the day I will arrive early

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

Ones with family members - not wishing to sound morbid but life is short and the occasions when whole families get together are few and far between so the ones with everyone in become treasured memories. However I enjoy doing pictures of the couple on their own!!! no bridesmaids, groomsmen or other people in the way!

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

Bride in the shower as she gets ready - Ask me for the story!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

You have a decision to make - shoot it or not - pictures in the rain can look passionate and fantastic but mess the dress up big time! I'd rather just go for it often the lighting is more even because of the clouds so the overall effect can be better!

Describe how you got into photography.

Aged 6 given a 120 roll film twin lens kodak camera Never looked back (apart from taking pictures)
