Full Description
I’m Jon and I’m a wedding photographer based in Derby, covering weddings across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and around the UK. I love meeting happy couples, getting to know them, sharing in the most important day of their lives and then wowing them with incredible pictures that tell the story of their wedding day; capturing something of the magic that they can treasure and pass on to their children and grandchildren. Couples I love to work with can’t wait to see their photos and share them with friends and family. All my packages include the high-resolution digital images from the wedding, and I always smile when I see one of my photographs appear as my client’s new Facebook profile picture! Getting to know my couples really well is at the heart of everything I do in my business. Scroll down to find out how I aim to offer the best possible service to every single couple I work with. Your wedding day is just that – a whole day. Therefore your photographs should tell the story of your whole wedding, from those early morning preparations through to Uncle Dave dancing with his tie round his head, Rambo-style, at the end of the evening. All my packages include full coverage of your big day, meaning that you’ll have the complete story of your wedding to look back on, and since there will be two of us, we can capture both sides of the wedding day morning story! In the morning I’ll photograph THE dress, any accessories that you have chosen, and the general chaos and special moments that happen before you leave to get married. Having two photographers is really useful during the wedding ceremony too, as it means we can tell the story from multiple angles without having to run around the venue and potentially distract your guests from the important stuff happening up front! Then, from confetti to speeches and through to dancing, we’ll ensure that we don’t miss a thing.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Jon Cripwell
Hey, I'm Jon. Thanks for stopping by. I'm a husband, father, photographer, writer and teacher. I LOVE shooting weddings because they're such a unique day in the shared life of a couple - plus there's cake, good music and everyone is having a good time; what's not to like? My aim is to tell the full story of your day, from the early morning preparations right through to Uncle Bob's dubious dancefloor moves - preserving memories to last a lifetime.

What is your most memorable wedding?

It's going to sound cliche, but I genuinely remember EVERY single one of my weddings, because I always take the time to get to know my clients really well - we become friends on the run-up to the big day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Romantic, elengant, timeless, natural, dramatic

What about your business are you most proud of?

Whenever I see one of my photographs printed at a client's house, or even shared on social media, I always feel proud :-)

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

Do what YOU want to do, not what you feel you SHOULD do.

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

One that springs to mind was from a fantastic wedding at The West Mill where the bride and groom had written a personal note on the inside of each of the guests' table place names.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Go with the flow - be flexible and don't worry too much. A good photographer will find indoor or outdoor locations that work for you, in the unlikely event that it actually rains ALL day!
