Full Description
I specialise in wedding photography that showcases the most memorable and tender moments of your day. I take a relaxed and fun approach to my photography - ensuring you have a wonderful experience, as well as a beautiful collection of carefully edited images. I believe in a personal approach and building a good relationship with my clients is very important to me; it helps you feel comfortable in front of the camera so I can capture the unique moments of your wedding day. I love to photograph the fun, romance, quirkiness, and candid moments that will be unique to your wedding, without getting in the way of you or your guests.   The most important thing for me is that every wedding should be fun and a day to remember. My job is to create a beautiful visual story of your day as it unfolds. I like to frame those elegant and often hilarious interactions and capture the joy and excitement of the day. While I might be in the thick of the celebrations, I always shoot discreetly and never disrupt the festivities. You can rely on my instincts and expertise for capturing exceptional images – from all the behind-the-scenes action to the romantic moments that go by in the blink of any eye. It would be an honour to capture your wedding, and if you are keen to collaborate with a talented and friendly photographer for exceptional images that will leave you delighted, then please get in touch. I will be happy to talk at length about your plans for your wedding day and answer any questions. I'm based in Hertfordshire but happy to travel, and I take all necessary precautions during this time of Covid.

Professional and unobtrusive
These are really good photos; we are really happy with them. Tim was so professional on the day and very unobtrusive. He made everyone feel very relaxed, which was great for someone who is not a fan of posing for photos. I would highly recommend Tim as your wedding photographer. Sam and Gary, Coltsfoot wedding venue, Datchworth.

Your professionalism and attitude was exceptional
Hi Tim, First of all Barry and I would like to say a massive thank you for all you did for us before, during and throughout our wedding day. We are so pleased and thrilled we chose you as our photographer on our special day. From the moment you arrived you just simply adapted into the day and even gave my friends a lift to the church! No photo-shot was too small or too big. We feel you really captured us as a couple and the love we share for each other. We loved how chilled and relaxed our day was and your professionalism and attitude to your work was exceptional. Once again thank you so much Tim! Kind regards, Melissa and Barry, The Lamb, Berkhamsted.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Cripps Barn, Cirencester, December 2020. This was a wedding with Covid restrictions and proved to me that don't you need a lot of people to have a fantastic wedding with lovely photographs.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed, Friendly, Romantic, Fun, Details

What about your business are you most proud of?

I made it happen.

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

Try and have a face-to-face discussion with all suppliers before booking them. Don't just rely on email.

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

This varies by wedding and venue. I think sparklers can look great when used a night and I always bring confetti - it's surprising how many couples forget.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I always like to schedule a video call ahead of any booking, so I can understand what you want from your photographer and give you an opportunity to get to know me and my approach. If you go ahead and book me, I'll follow that up with another call or face-to-face meeting (ideally at the venue) closer to your big day to finalise timings and any specific photo requirements.

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

Confetti throw.

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

Animal portraits of the cows and ducks at Hedsor House.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Find somewhere at your venue that has a good source of natural light, but ideally not a window. Skylights are good, or a large covered porch. This will help to make sure you get the best light possible for any group shots you may want.

Describe how you got into photography.

I've been a keen photographer since I was a young boy, so it was a natural progression.
