Full Description
I'm a polite and cheerful fellow but when an engaged couple engage me to be their photographer, I try not to engage them too much on their big day! People look lovely when they're in the moment, being themselves. It's the spontaneity and humanity that I love to capture in my pictures. It's always good to have some time for group pictures and I'm very good at getting those done quickly. Otherwise, my target clients will agree that less time spent posing for photographs means more time for fun with their friends and family. After all, that's what your wedding should be about while I quietly get you a beautiful and intimate record. Priced at £1595, my standard 8 hour wedding includes all your full resolution images on a fancy USB flash drive. Flexible coverage available - eg. £995 for 4 hours or £1995 for 12 hours. I offer excellent value printing and beautiful homemade frames. I am also an authorised supplier of Queensberry albums.

Excellent photographer
Harry took the time to talk to us and understand what we would like and gave us time to think about that in advance. He was extremely organised and well prepared with the plans for the day. He got to the venue ahead of time to find some really lovely shots and went above and beyond. Harry is lovely and very friendly to all the guests and put everyone at ease. He has a brilliant eye and caught some lovely intimate and funny moments from the day. The quality of the pictures he's produced are excellent Harry was highly responsive over email and delivered everything he promised on or ahead of time. We would highly recommend Harry to anyone else looking for a photographer and will definitely try and engage him again if we have future needs for a photographer - thanks Harry!

Absolutely perfect
We really recommend Harry’s photographs and his excellent service throughout. Having met Harry at a wedding open day, he has looked after us every step of the way since. Meeting us at a point of convenience to discuss our needs, Harry was able to show us examples of his brilliant work and be open and honest about his favoured shooting style. Having booked him, it was all very smooth leading up to the wedding day, with a clear form for us to fill in with our requirements. On the day itself, Harry was punctual at all points agreed, both in terms of our bridal party and groomsmen preparations and for the ceremony. We had preview pics within 24 hours, our full set was with us within a month and has been on hand at all times to answer any questions about photobooks and printing, both for us and for our guests Most importantly, the photos were brilliant – our posed shots perfectly framed in our locations, and his reportage style was perfect for the reception breakfast, speeches and dancing. We couldn’t have hoped for better.

Harry was an absolute dream at our wedding - the photographs capture the day perfectly and he was so warm and friendly at all times which made such a difference, even staying cheerful during the group shots outdoors in the snow. Many friends and family have commented on how great he was and have been impressed by the photos which will be treasured. He was also reliable and very easy to communicate with from day one. Many thanks for all your hard work, Harry. Molly and Daniel.

Harry gave us exactly the live-action gonzo feel we were looking for.

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

Plan to relax on the day. Allow plenty of time!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meet in London for a coffee or something stronger - your choice. We can have a natter about your plans, look at some albums. If you like, book me and pay a £350 deposit. Around a month before I'll be back in touch to go through my list of questions and produce my photo schedule for your wedding. Afterwards, I'll send your some previews within a week followed by the full gallery and invoice, usually within 3-6 weeks.

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

While I specialise in reportage photography, I always recommend taking 10 minutes of quiet time to do some portraits with the photographer. I keep things relaxed and fun so it's worth doing just to catch your breath. Plus you get some lovely pictures for the mantelpiece!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Brollies and a sense of humour!
