So glad we chose him
Lee did our stunning photography for our wedding this year. We can’t recommend Lee highly enough as he was brilliant start to finish. He showed great professionalism and was dedicated to his job. Lee discussed the events of the day with us and also asked what photos we were expecting beforehand to make sure nothing would be missed on our special day. Lee also went to the venue before the wedding to inspect the venue and to chat with our wedding planner so he could co-ordinate the best photo shoots and pre-pick some great locations. We enjoyed having Lee as part of our big day, we are so glad we chose him. He will not disappoint.

Professionalism and attention to detail
From start to finish Lee’s professionalism was exemplary. Lee’s attention to detail, consideration of all circumstances and attentiveness to us and all our guests was second to none.

Thrilled with the results!
I worked with Lee on a personal branding shoot and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Lee was professional throughout but made me feel at ease in front of the camera. His knowledge of lighting and best positions for natural portrait photography was so valuable in the session and meant I came away with an amazing selection of images for use on my social media platforms, for press opportunities and for website use. I would love to work with Lee again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his work.

What is your most memorable wedding?

A recent wedding in a converted barn. It was a beautiful setting and so relaxed - it was great fun. It had a bit of everything including some dramatically lit twilight portraits, energetic dance floor action and a famous band. It was so rewarding when the happy couple thanked me at the end of the night for helping keep their day easy, fun and natural.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Modern, light, bright, fresh, creative

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I get to do what I love as a job!

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

Careful timeline planning, making sure everything is catered for but ensuring you have plenty of time to relax and celebrate - I can help you with this

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

A 40’s military theme! It’s not my usual type of wedding but all the guests looked amazing in their costumes and uniforms.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I’m a bit of a planner! I have a comprehensive pre-wedding planning process that I guide you though in bite size pieces. This can also include an engagement shoot where I take you through a simple couples’s posing system. Everything is done to build our familiarity, dial in the vision, and to ensure the wedding day runs really smooth and we can relax and enjoy it.

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

It's worth popping out after first dance and doing a really creative flash lit shot. It only takes a few mins and will give them something a bit different... that "wow" shot that will look great as wall art.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Clear umbrellas, wellies, embracing it and having fun! We can still get amazing pictures inside and out!
