So happy we had Kevin to capture our day
I cannot recommend Kevin highly enough for anyone wanting natural, beautifully captured photos of their wedding day. He put in so much time and effort before, during and after the wedding day and gave us the opportunity to enjoy the time together instead of standing still and awkwardly smiling for hours on end. He kept us both calm on the day (especially my husband in the morning) and we could not be happier with the photos and the overall experience Kevin provided. If I could give more than 5 stars then I would!!

Our wedding perfectly captured
Would recommend Kevin to everyone! We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos. Kevin was friendly and professional and so much help; neither of us knew much about weddings and Kevin's knowledge and support were invaluable. Our wedding photos are amazing, we love the "in the moment" feel to them, and the beautiful framing and perspective of each shot (evidence of Kevin's great eye). We really liked Kevin's documentary style rather than something staged or posed that some other photographers do, and you can see it in the results - we love every shot and there are great photos of not just us but also the interactions and all the guests at our wedding. The delivery of and presentation of our photos and album were above and beyond in quality as well.

Kevin is a pro. He works with great discretion. His style is relaxed, the photos outstanding. His prints and albums are top quality. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Gough Wedding
Kevin was incredible from the start. He is very professional and gave us super confidence right from our very first Skype meeting. The build up, meetings at the church and Skype calls were a real joy and it has been so lovely to get to know Kevin. On the actual day Kevin oooozed class and organisation and we are incredibly happy with our photos. We can’t recommend him highly enough.

Couldn't have asked for more!!
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Kevin as our wedding photographer. He was able to make the stress of planning a wedding (or at least the photography part!) seem like a piece of cake as he was super responsive and answered all of our questions promptly. He really went above and beyond on what he said he would do by putting in the extra hours and being extra accommodating. He also really listened to how we wanted the photographs to look and came up with the perfect documentary style that we wanted. When we opened the box with all of our photos we were on cloud 9. We can’t recommend Kevin enough!!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Natural, Observational, Creative, Unscripted, Authentic

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Being able to be part of a very special day for each couple and the work done to provide each couple with truly personal and gorgeous photography.

What about your business are you most proud of?

When I first looked at plans for college I wanted to do photography but took a route to engineering instead! That career took me round the world but ultimately one day I decided I wanted to return to photography. I went back to college to study photography and haven't looked back since....

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

The most memorable so far has to be Hanako and Roger who had a two ceremony celebration held at Hengrave Hall. In the first ceremony, Hanako wore traditional Japanese dress as did her family and it was a huge privilege to witness Hanako preparing to wear the traditional Japanese wedding Kimono. It was an incredible day full of emotion with guests from across the globe and everyone crammed in to the tiny church for the church blessing. Everything about the day was so beautiful and the evening party was something else! I am still in touch with Hanako and Roger 5 years later and love to see their family growing and their marriage as strong as the day it was when they married.

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

There isn't one. It's all down to your personal preference.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I realise how busy it is planning a wedding and many of my couples are based some distance away from where they may be getting married. We'll normally speak either via e-mail or Skype during the booking process and then I always prefer to meet couples before the big day, usually about 6-8 weeks before to say hello and go through final details. On the day I usually spend time with the bride first, and depending on what the couple want, also arrange to photograph the groom and best man, sometimes I have my second photographer photographing the groom. When it comes to the ceremony it can vary with what photographs I take, particularly in England where restrictions often apply on being able to photograph the couple taking their vows. I usually find a way to keep photographing and it always helps if I speak to the celebrant or vicar beforehand! After the ceremony I'll usually be photographing the interactions as the bride and groom take congratulations with everyone and I'll allow time to do some relaxed couple portraits if they want them. For the rest of the day, I'll be very much in the background as an observer capturing the action of the day!

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

Focus (pardon the pun) on the stuff that's important to you both and don't feel the need to conform with parents and friends ideas of what your day should be like!

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

Don't worry! One thing you can't control is the weather and actually you can get some fabulously romantic photos in the rain. If it's raining heavily before the ceremony, large umbrella's are a necessity so plan ahead and have some ready!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I did once have to climb a (very high) castle wall to get a ceremony shot from an elevated position. Whilst not necessarily original I was in a little bit of peril as the drop the other side was a sheer 100 metres!

Describe how you got into photography.

It was a wedding in 2015 when the bride and groom held their wedding day on the bride's grandparents wedding anniversary. It made it so very special and incredibly beautiful for the grandparents to be part of.
