Full Description
I have a relaxed, unobtrusive way of documenting the day that allows events to unfold naturally. When required, I am able to organize large groups with minimal fuss so that the shots are captured quickly and in a fun way. With the couple shots I keep them relaxed and enjoyable so the time you spend together doing them becomes a cherished part of the day. With over 12 years experience I can also bring some calm to proceedings! I like to to meet with all of my clients so that we can talk further about your plans and get to know each other a little bit. It's a very important day for you both so you want to be sure you're happy with your photographer and how they will be with you and your guests on the day. If you are not able to visit (e.g living overseas, far away) then we can always have a video chat online. Once you're happy to proceed then a deposit can be made to secure your date with me. I have a selection of beautiful custom made sample albums and USB's which I bring with me to our first meeting and you can get an idea of what they look and feel like. All images from the day go on to the USB which you are able to use for printing and posting on social media. I personally design your album bespoke to you, so every album I make is unique. You are able to view the final design before printing to ensure you are happy with it. I normally deliver around 400-600 images for a full day's coverage.

Leon certainly helped to make our special day very special.
We chose Leon as the Photographer for our wedding which took place at Easter. From the first time we met him, we both felt so at ease with him and really liked his very relaxed manner. Leon listened to what we wanted, and from the first meeting, he was already remembering some names of our families and the role they were to play on the day. Leon totally blended into the background and was not in any way intrusive as the guests enjoyed their day. Many of our guests commented when they saw the photographs of themselves that they had not even been aware of him taking them, therefore, we have some fantastic natural photos which we love. However, when needed, Leon quietly got people in the right place to take the planned photos. He was so polite put everyone at ease. A few weeks before the wedding, we met with Leon to walk around the grounds of the venue, finding suitable locations for our photos. This made the day go very smoothly and the photos are amazing. It was with great difficulty that we finally chose our final pictures for our album. We would highly recommend Leon for any special occasion. He certainly helped to make our special day very special , and we have some lovely memories thanks to his work.

Leon has great attention to detail and gave us excellent ideas on beautiful wedding shots.
Naz and I found Leon very competent and easy to work with. He has great attention to detail and gave us excellent ideas on beautiful wedding shots in and around Bath. He was able to calm our nerves before the big event and his professional and approachable personality helped us throughout the day. The photos came out really well. We wholeheartedly recommend him for any occasion.

He is an amazing photographer capturing natural photos- we will definitely be using him in the future.
We had Leon as our wedding photographer last year and have just had a newborn family shoot with him. Leon has always been very friendly, professional and had great suggestions for photos at our wedding. The photos, both on the day and the engagement shoot we’re better than we could have hoped for and I would highly recommend him. He is an amazing photographer capturing natural photos- we will definitely be using him in the future and can’t wait to see the photos from our newborn shoot.

Our beautiful wedding at Cadbury House
Leon was a perfect choice right from the start; he gave us the complete freedom to have a package that was right for us and the price was more than competitive if truth be known we personally would have been prepared to pay double as our whole day was captured in such a unique way and was completely tailored to our needs. The one stipulation we had was for Leon and our a large amount of guests to have fun. Leon has such a unique ability to capture in the moment shots from pranks to intricate moments and the little guests (children) just being children. As a nervous and shy bride I can honestly say the moment you meet Leon he is funny, kind and compassionate and very accommodating and makes you feel completely at ease. From my husband and grooms men point of view they said Leon was part of #TeamGroom and the photos look stunning and really natural and loads of fun which is what we all wanted for us and our guests. :) We really could not have asked for a better photographer to be part of our special day and the turn around to receiving the photos was so quick I would have waited months as they look absolutely amazing we literally can't stop looking at them and sharing them. It is such an amazing feeling to relive our special day and an added bonus is seeing photos captured in the moment that we didn't see being captured. We highly recommend using Leon and can't wait to re book him for self portrait and we've recommend him to my brother and partner as they are expecting there first child :)

Fantastic images, highly recommended!
Leon was great and really put us and guests at ease. He spent time with us and at the venue prior to the wedding so was really prepared and took some fantastic images. Plenty of options for packages and Leon met our needs completely. Would really recommend him for any occasion!

What is your most memorable wedding?

The three weddings I covered in Italy were all spectacular and a real adventure for me! Such beautiful landscapes and to shoot a wedding somewhere like Lake Garda was a dream. The wedding in Port Rush, Northern Ireland in July 2018 was pretty amazing too (apart from the downpour on the wedding day - eek!).

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, natural, romantic, adventurous, artistic.

What about your business are you most proud of?

The very kind reviews from happy clients and the beautiful images I've created.

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

Don't take it too seriously and get worked up over all the planning. It's supposed to be a fun day. Not everything will go to plan but 95% of it will. Breathe and relax. Oh, and invest in the things that will help you remember the day i.e a decent photographer and videographer. Is that more than one tip?

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

Someone did save it until their speech to announce they were having a baby which was a lovely moment. Another groom was a film fanatic and hired a cinema to get married in, a Delorean to travel to the reception in, and a rehearsed medley of famous movie dances for their first dance.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Answer an enquiry with any info they require and suggest a meet up to look at some albums, get to know each other and see their venue. Upon booking then keep in touch up to the wedding date to see how they are getting on and swap any ideas. On the day itself arrive with a list of group shots, a timeline of the day and names of the wedding party (all provided by the couple) to ensure things go smoothly.

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

Hard to say as how do you put a value on photos with a bride or grooms parents or children. They are all important. Main ones to get - group shot of everyone, parents, bridesmaids, best man, close family & friends, and not forgetting some nice couple shots.

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

I was asked to photograph a bride and groom having a 'first touch' whereby they were separated by a door but wanted to say a few reassuring words to each other before the ceremeony without seeing each other. It was nice to see both their expressions from where I was standing then they could not see each other.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Embrace the rain and be flexible. When it stops raining and you want outdoor shots be ready to pop outside whilst there is a break in the weather. Have some umbrellas on standby and be brave enough to go out in the rain and have some shots - they look stunning with a remote flash back lighting the rain so it stands out and becomes a feature of the photo.

Describe how you got into photography.

I studied art at college and was put onto a photography course to learn about composition. I'd always liked taking photos and keeping a document of my life but learning the techniques involved got me hooked.
