The pictures themselves are amazing!
A huge thank you to Geoff for our beautiful wedding pics! Having worked with a wedding photographer previously, picking our photographer was a huge decision for me, but I could not be happier with our choice. Geoff made us feel so relaxed, right from the first meeting, on our engagement shoot and most importantly on our wedding day. He felt like one of our guests rather than someone following us round with a camera. Everyone has commented on how easy he made everything and also on his cracking sense of humour! The pictures themselves are amazing and we love them so much, which says a lot for two people who don't like having their photos taken!

We LOVE Geoff!
We had a clear vision of the type of photographer we wanted for our wedding - fun, laid back and someone that would put our guests at total ease. As soon as we met Geoff at a wedding fayre we knew he was the man for the job and he didn't disappoint! He wasn't just our photographer he became a guest, and a friend. We had so many laughs with him and I cannot thank him enough for the beautiful photographs he has given us to help us remember our day forever. It was so lovely that our guest's commented how great he was too, earning himself the nickname 'Geoffers'! If you want someone fun, reliable, creative, down to earth and professional ...book Geoff!

Geoff is your man to capture your special day!
Geoff photographed for my sisters wedding and after 10 minutes he felt like part of the family and we knew if we ever got married we wouldn't have anyone else to photograph us other than Geoff! A wedding is very personal and for someone who can be a bit awkward having pictures taken Geoff puts you completely st ease and within minutes you feel like you have known him forever! Geoff takes the most amazing photos and you hardly notice he is taking photos at all! Wedding photos are something you treasure forever and Geoff is your man to capture your special day!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Once the couple have booked me for their special day after their free comsultation, I keep in contact with them helping them where they need it so the wedding day runs smoothly. Before the wedding day I send them a photo list for them to fill out with details of their V.I.P's, Group shots, locations and Timings. On the day I get my self at the venue early so have a look around for locations for shots later in the day. During the wedding I'm professional, fun and relaxed. When needed I give a gental directional but nothing to fake or contrived.

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

I lovely relaxed portrait of the couple, be that taken when the bride and groom are not aware during the celebrations, or in the bride and groom portrait session before the wedding breakfast. it has to be something they want to hang on their wall at home.

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

This was of the bride and groom in a landscape setting back in Feburary, we only had about 5 minuites to get the shots we wanted and I saw a wonderful oppotunity of putting the couple on the road with the winter sun setting behind them, then all of a sudden a red pick up truck went by the embracing couple and I got the shot I wanted.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

An open mind, a smile, Wellington boots and lots of brollies, lets have fun!

Describe how you got into photography.

I was always in to art and drawing as a child and my uncle had an SLR, but it wasn't until I saw a camera in a shop window at the same time as I was going to renew my Nottingham Forest season ticket and boom then it all started for me. I studied art and design at college and found photography when I was 17, I then went on to get my degree in Photography and the rest is history.
