Full Description
When I photograph a wedding I want to give couple’s back what I didn’t have on my own day - more time. It’s not about posing, it’s about living the day. Those are the photographs I want to give to the couples I work with. I know how awful it can feel having your photograph taken - that’s why I spent many years making it painless. I tell the story of the day from start to finish without all the waiting around...... “The Master of Unposed Photography”

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Andrew Billington
Hi - thanks for looking. I hope the planning is going well and that it's an enjoyable process. Please let me know more about your wedding plans. The way I work is to photograph the day you've planned without taking over - to win you time back on your wedding day! Maximum enjoyment time and minimum time standing around. Andrew x

Andrew I just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday, you took the stress off me big time when I was being a bridezilla!! And you’re a huge giggle, I loved having you at my wedding!! My face is aching today where I was laughing so much Andrew just properly going through the photos with pat. You’re a genius. xxxx

We've laughed, cried and hugged over them so many
I think I've run out of superlatives. We love them; only to say that we love them seems to pay your work a disservice. We've laughed, cried and hugged over them so many times already. You've captured every element of a particularly incredible day. We can't thank you enough, and everybody who has seen them so far is in complete agreement. Having you at our wedding felt like having an additional guest, who just happened to have a couple of cameras and a mean artistic flair. You rock.

It’s like reliving the whole day all over again
It’s like reliving the whole day all over again but with the added bonus of seeing all the bits we missed.
