Full Description
I offer full day packages with a minimum of 10 hours attendance - enough for bridal and groom preparations right through to the crazy dancing! You'll get 700+ stunning edited images to do with whatever you wish with amazing boxed leather photo books and USB sticks too! Plain and simple I just love photography. I love cameras and lenses and all the other bits and bobs too. I love meeting people and freeze-framing their lives. I love the challenges of adverse weather, tricky light and children that won’t smile on cue! Its what I do and I wouldn’t change a thing! I am a storyteller. Creatively capturing the happiness and emotion of special occasions is my talent. I visually record things that you are probably to busy to notice, and if you want the ‘wow’ picture we can create that too! There are many photographers around but I am different. I do my research, I arrive early, I leave late, I care and I can help guide you through any situation to ensure that the photography is everything you dreamt of. I do it all with a smile and will not stop until I believe I have done you justice. I am professional, organised and outgoing and just love the excitement and emotion that weddings and special events provide. Thriving on new technology, I invest heavily in equipment that will allow me to make the most of your special occasion, creating timeless, artistic, natural images for you to be proud to display and enjoy for many many years. I am proud of my reputation and what my clients say about me – please read through some recent testimonials if you have time… If you have any questions, check availability or would like to discuss anything relating to my services please make contact. I look forward to hearing from you!

From the moment we met him at a wedding fayre we knew he had to be part of our day...
What can we tell you that you probably don’t know already... except book him if you haven’t done so! 1 his schedule is jam packed, 2 he is simply the best. From the moment we met him at a wedding fayre we knew he had to be part of our day. Right from the start he has been amazing, made us feel both relaxed and he really has captured the “moments”. The photos from our engagement shoot, the sneaky peaks we have seen already from our big day are truly stunning. He had 2 brides to photograph and we couldn’t have asked for a better guy and friendlier photographer to do the job. Our guests are non stop talking about you (you’ve taken our lime light) and already some of our guests are getting ready to speak to you. You truly are fantastic and we are so grateful. Lots of love your brides Mrs & Mrs Adams xx

You captured our special day with such perfection...!
Hi John, Nick and myself want to say a massive Thank You for our amazing wedding photos which we have seen on our gallery. You captured our special day with such perfection from the time before, during our after our ceremony. With your brilliant sense of humour and calm personality you managed to keep everyone on the day focused and kept nerves at bay, allowing you to take the most superior quality pictures. You took so many beautiful photographs that no one knew you were taking, capturing the most natural photos I've seen. Your support, advice and friendship right from our very first meeting was unbelievable. You are a true professional, and your skills speak for themselves. It was an honour to have you as such a big part of our special day John and we are so proud to show everyone our photos which tell our story so perfectly. We would recommend your services to anyone considering a wedding photographer. Thank you so much John. With endless thanks love and best wishes, Jack and Nick - Mr & Mrs Lay xxx

John was amazing from start to finish...!
John was amazing from start to finish. When we first met John on a home visit to discuss what we wanted from our wedding photos we felt totally relaxed. John asked us what we wanted and gave us some great ideas for every eventuality. When it came to the wedding day john was the calmest person there, so relaxed and nothing was a problem for him, even helping out with things if he saw something needed doing, and tied my tie several times for me to make sure it was looking its best. John was excellent with the children we had at the wedding and really patient with them and fitting in around them when needed. All of our guests loved John and really enjoyed getting photographed by him, especially on the dance floor where john blended in (great dance moves) and captured some great natural pictures. We were very lucky to have John photographing our wedding and we have so many great photos to look back on for years to come. Highly recommended. Thank you so much John!!!

Looking back at our amazing shots he has transported us back to the most special day of our lives...!
John photographed our whole wedding day in May and he was truly amazing. The quality of the photos are fantastic and he has a great eye for capturing the atmosphere and emotion of the day. Me and my husband are not a big fans of having photos taken but John made us feel so comfortable and confident to have pictures taken. On the run up to the wedding I didn’t have any worries or doubts about John being our photographer he was so organised and made us feel at ease. He has even continued to help us after the wedding with creating some beautiful wedding thank you cards. Having seen our photos we can safety say John was the best choice to capture our big day. Looking at our amazing shots he has transported us back to the most special day of our lives. Thank you so much John we are honestly very grateful and wish you all the best. Nicole and Jason.

So professional and friendly - our guests kept commenting on how fantastic our photographer was...!
Absolutely loved having John to capture our wedding day. We can’t thank him enough! So professional and friendly - our guests kept commenting on how fantastic our photographer was. John made our day run to time but without any stress. We had no idea what the time was but we didn’t need to worry because John made sure we were at the right place at the right time and made sure we got all of our dream photos and so many more than we could have thought of ourselves. He is so approachable and knowledgeable. We have our photos back and were speechless when we 1st looked at them. He captured our day perfectly and so much more than we could have ever imagined. Thanks John! xx

I’d highly recommend John to any future brides out there...!
I was the make-up artist at a friend’s wedding recently and John was fantastic! He put everyone at ease and was amazingly well organised. He got all of the fab shots you’d hope for, plus loads of surprise ones too that really helped to tell the story of the day. I’d highly recommend John to any future brides out there!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Yours. Obviously...! x

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Contemporary, Natural, Documentary, Wow, Creative.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The growth I have achieved through a good work ethic and lots of recommendations.

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

Don't be afraid to ask people like me for advice - we do this all the time and I love helping my clients out in other areas of their wedding.

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

Printed out speeches for the hard of hearing!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Firstly, just visit my website and complete the contact form. We can meet up for a coffee and a no obligation chat about your plans. I have zillions of weddings under my belt and you're welcome to look through them either at my office, your home or anywhere you like. If you decide that we are right for each other you can select one of my packages and create you own. I utilise software that enables all your documents (enquiry, contract, questionnaires, invoices etc) to be held securely online on your own bespoke client portal. Once booked I send out an online booking questionnaire and then, later on, a timeline questionnaire. We then meet up, usually at the venue to go through the day and select some great spots. We will also have a PLAN B plan just incase. Once your images are edited and ready you will receive a link to your beautiful bespoke online gallery enabling you to view, download and share your day. You and your friends and family can also order any prints or other items there too if you wish. The gallery also allows you to select your favourite images for any ordered deluxe, boxed photo books that I also offer.

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

The confetti shot!

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

The groom wanted to where the dress for a while and they happy couple switched clothes for a moment. In the privacy of the bridal suite naturally!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Fun wellies and huge white umbrellas (which I have with me in the car at all times) and an open mind. I've created some stunning images in the rain!

Describe how you got into photography.

I left University with a degree but started with photography from the age of 10 (it was a polaroid!). Capturing moments that most missed was a great challenge and I still love it now...
