Full Description
Continually inspired by life experiences and a visually exciting world around me I produce beautiful images that capture emotion and stimulate the viewer. I continue to explore and visually document the world through my photography capturing celebrations, people and places in a vibrant, beautiful and elegant style. I cover weddings, parties and social events for stylish, discerning clients who appreciate photography, art and fashion. I believe in capturing the day from start to finish and hope to engage creatively with all I encounter whether it’s the ushers lunch, the bridal preparation, the décor shots, family portraits and of course the ceremony right through to the party. I feel every element of the day contributes to the telling of a story, the description of a journey and should be recorded. My background is very much in the world of fashion and editorial photography. I was a regular contributor to magazines such as British, Spanish Vogue, Glamour, Brides, Tatler, Marie Claire, In Style, Harpers Bazaar and more. Years working with prestigious magazines has taught me focus and discipline and has enhanced my creativity all of which directly feeds into my photography. I have been part of the official photography team on five royal weddings. Fuelled by a passion for art, fashion and photography I intend to work with other creative individuals as a team to record and capture celebrations such as weddings and parties with the creative goal of producing meaningful, powerful lasting imagery. I hope to bring to my social photography some of the sensibility and influence of my portrait and fashion work. I have photographed weddings in countries such as Fiji, Thailand, Zimbabwe, Munich and Tuscany. With an impressive range of beautiful albums, presentation samples and products I am able to deliver a concise package with a unique style and vision. I look forward to hearing from you. Philip

Wedding photography thank you
My husband and I used Philip for our intimate family wedding at Chelsea Registry Office in May 2018. From our first conversation, Philip really took the time to understand exactly how we wanted the pictures to look and feel and fully committed to our vision for the day. Before the event, we had several long conversations about the groups and Philip really took the time to understand who was attending the event, which shots were really important to us and even memorising our families' names! The day itself went very smoothly. Philip arrived ahead of schedule and connected easily with my family whilst I was having hair and make-up done. The rest of the day was a dream. We had some posed shots but otherwise Philip was very discrete and you wouldn't have known he was there. We had thought long and hard about having a photographer for our wedding in London. However, from the first click of Philip's shutter, I knew we had made the right decision. Philip sent the photos to us really promptly and they are now proudly displayed in our house and our families' house. They are memories we will have forever and we thank Philip so much for capturing them beautifully.

Wedding thank you.
We were so pleased that we chose to work with Philip as our wedding photographer. We were married in October at Holy Trinity Church Seer Green, with the reception afterwards at Beaconsfield Golf Club. He captured the atmosphere of the day perfectly, and we were absolutely delighted with the final wedding album. As well being a great photographer, Philip's personality really fitted into our day well, it was clear that he had lots of experience, which allowed us to completely relax and enjoy the day without having to worry about where we needed to be and who needed to be in the various photos. Philip had a great rapport going with both families during the more formal photos, and caught the vibe of the later part of the evening perfectly too. Some of the party shots were absolutely fantastic. We got on really well with Philip throughout the planning process, and on the day itself it all went like clockwork. All in all we would highly recommend Philip, he was a lot of fun to work with and did a fantastic job for us – thank you Philip!

Happy wedding couple
Philip followed us all the way to Corsica for taking the pictures of our wedding day. During the day we had three venues and Philip was present for all of them. He was able to be discreet but also when needed managed to gather people in groups using his professionalism and great sense of humour to make people listened to him! Never that easy when people are enjoying themselves chatting, eating, and dancing... We were so pleased with how the day went! Back home we received the pictures and this was another memorable day. The pictures made us cry, they were so beautiful and telling the story of an amazing unforgettable day. We loved them, they were perfect! In every single picture there is an emotion, the colours are stunning and Philip has managed to capture the moment perfectly. We highly recommend Philip, as we felt very lucky to have such a talented photographer on our wedding day.

Happy wedding couple
My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having Philip attend our wedding in Fiji. We were honoured to have him celebrate the day with us as our wedding photographer. I struggle to express the words to describe Philip's presence on the day and ability to capture candid heartfelt moments. We were so excited to see the end product and were elated with the result. They are everything Philip is as a photographer - warm, elegant and very genuine. On the wedding day Philip blended seamlessly with the celebrations; he put people at ease and managed to capture this. Philip is also fantastic with working with children, who appear to adore him. So many of our guests display the pictures Philip has taken of their children in their homes. Philip was extremely professional and organised and I could not recommend him more. The standard of his work is unsurpassed.

Happy wedding couple
Philip was our wedding photographer for our wedding at the Windsor Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. He was helpful and attentive from the get go, reassuring on the day, always available and perhaps most importantly provided us with a beautiful collection of photographs to remember our special day with. He was our first choice, and there were other photographers who perhaps were at a slightly lower cost but the quality of service and product did not seem anywhere close to that what he has offered. Philip's knowledge of basic Thai language helped immensely and certainly created some laughter and helped guests relax and enjoy the experience more. I would absolutely 100% recommend him to anyone else looking for a great and personable photographer for their wedding or any other special occasion. Thanks again to Philip!

My husband and I got married in August 2017 in Hampshire and after searching for the perfect photographer, we finally found Philip. We looked through his portfolio and knew right away that he was just what we were looking for. He was a pleasure to work with- highly professional, great fun and very talented. If you are looking for a fantastic photographer with the above attributes and excellent communication throughout the whole process, then this is your man. Thank you again for giving us such wonderful memories to look back on.
