Full Description
I love to photograph people and I especially love to photograph weddings – there’s nothing quite like it. I can’t help but get caught up in the excitement, the emotion, and the happiness and significance of the day. I can’t think of a better place to do a day’s ‘work’, surrounded by happy people sharing so many memorable and intimate moments together. My style as a documentary wedding photographer is to work in a friendly and unobtrusive way but with passion and creativity to ensure I do everything I can to produce a timeless story that you and future generations will treasure. I would love to be considered as your documentary wedding photographer to capture your special and unrepeatable moments – the glances, the touches, the happiness, the fun and the smiles you share, and maybe even the occasional tear! I'm more than happy to photograph weddings almost anywhere in the UK. Distance isn’t really a barrier - I'd even love to hear from you if you are considering a destination wedding. I also offer a complimentary engagement photoshoot. The thought of being photographed terrifies most people but I find this is an amazing way to get to know one another in a fun and relaxed way, build confidence and establish a rapport ahead of the big day. It makes a huge difference. You will be dying to see some of your wedding photographs as soon as possible so I offer all my couples a "Photo-a-Day" for 7 days immediately after your wedding. So something really special to look forward to whilst on honeymoon! You receive a collection of amazing individually edited photos on a beautiful customised USB and in a password-protected web gallery for you to share with your friends and family. All my couples also receive an emotional slideshow of a selection of your best photos set to music. Finally, if you would like to see your photos expertly printed and framed or in a gorgeous Queensberry wedding album then I can provide a range of options for your consideration.

professional approach and wonderful personality
“Dear Graham, Just a short email to say how delighted I was to see your excellent work last night with Fraser and Carrie-Ann going through the DVD and the full range of wonderful photography. Your work really has brought out the wonder and excitement of the day from start to finish and I know that everyone who has seen your work is very impressed indeed. As you know as someone who owns and operates 8 hotels, a major part of our business is in relation to weddings and I have struggled to find the same quality of wedding photography from all the various photographs taken across these hotels when compiling our wedding brochures. You really have produced a significant range of superb shots. Thank you very much indeed for not only great work but being very much an integral part of the team on the day through your professional approach and wonderful personality. Needless to say, if I can recommend you home or abroad, I will do so. Keep up the good work. Kind regards, Stuart“

the shots you have taken are breath taking
“Hi Graham, Well what can we say!! Thank you so much! The photos are amazing! I cried when we watched the slideshow! The slideshow is such a good idea it shows off the pictures so well and tells the story of the day perfectly, I particularly love the part where you made us dance! Some of the shots you have taken are breath taking – the shots of Fraser hugging his grans almost had him in tears and set me off! We can’t believe the detail you have managed to capture and the emotion in everyone’s faces! I knew from the first time I spoke to you on the phone you wouldn’t let us down and you certainly didn’t! We are so so happy with the photos! You and Mary are such lovely people and everyone at the wedding who spoke to you were very complimentary about you…. And they haven’t even seen the photos yet! I have already given out one of your business cards today and I will recommend you to anyone in the future. Thanks again, Please pass on our compliments to Mary too, Kind regards, Mr and Mrs Hunter”

We were completely blown away
“We would just like to say thank you so so much for our photos. We were completely blown away by the slide show – we showed dans family this eventing and his mum and nan were in tears (like me) The day is caught perfectly! We are now sitting down with a bottle of wine to watch the ‘lot’. Thank you ‘a thousand times’ and to Mary for her help and support. We loved the whole experience of ‘working’ with you both and honestly you feel like old family friends. Much love Katie and Dan xxxx”

"you really captured the spirit of the day"
“We just wanted to say a heartfelt “thank you” for capturing such a beautiful set of photos to remember our wedding day by. You were so good with our guests and did a fantastic job organising group photos under less than favourable weather conditions! Everybody has been telling us how impressed they are with the quality of your work and how you really captured the spirit of the day. Thanks also to your assistant, the lovely Mary! You were both an integral part of making our special day such a memorable occasion and we are so grateful. With love and best wishes, Helen & John xx”

We can’t recommend Graham enough
“A note to future couples embarking on the challenge of finding a wedding photographer… Graham’s documentary style of wedding photography is extremely unobtrusive which enabled us to enjoy our intimate wedding in addition to having a fantastic record of our day. The night before our wedding I had a few last minute nerves and reservations about the ‘getting ready’ photos but Graham immediately put us all at ease to ensure we felt relaxed. I’m very appreciative that he convinced me to go ahead as looking at the photos now transports me back to the excitement of the day. Graham takes great pride in capturing the sentiment of the day but also in seeking out more creative shots. This was demonstrated in the photos taken during our ‘wedding party’ at the Ashmolean Museum where he even spotted shots using reflections that the venue’s event team hadn’t seen before! The time and effort invested by Graham, before our wedding and after, is most likely unrivalled by other photographers. This included sending us a photo each day during our honeymoon which became something we really looked forward to receiving and was a really nice touch. Finally, if Graham mentions the word ‘slide show’ to you when talking about how you would like your photos, definitely say yes. You will not be disappointed! We can’t recommend Graham enough. His photos are brilliant and have received fantastic comments from our family and friends. Thank you Graham! Kelly and Chris”

What is your most memorable wedding?

It sounds a little crass but I remember every wedding as being special!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, friendly, creative, unobtrusive and emotional

What about your business are you most proud of?

I see it as an enormous privilege to be chosen as a wedding photographer so I treat every couple as if they were my only customers. I always push myself to deliver a collection of special memories that the couple will love and treasure.

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

Find a photographer who loves weddings, has the style you love and the character you and your family will enjoy on your big day!

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

When the couple see you as a friend on their wedding day!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

First of all get in touch by email or give me a call to check availability. I'll send you my latest wedding brochure. Chat about your wedding plans, get excited, if possible meet up or chat some more. If you decide to book me then a deposit secures your wedding date. If possible we'll meet up for your complimentary engagement photoshoot and get even more excited!

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

I love the photo when the bride and groom first sets eyes on one another - a very special moment.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Go with the flow, it will still be an amazing day! We will always have a back up plan for your photographs but if you are adventurous, bring some brollies along and let's have some fun and capture some special moments. You'll stay dry but I'll probably get soaked!

Describe how you got into photography.

I've loved taking photographs since I was a teenager with a film camera and felt the magic of developing my own films. Over time I realised that the photos that captured people and their character gave me the biggest thrill so it was an easy step for me to move from being a scientist and inventor to becoming a full-time professional wedding photographer.
