Full Description
Potters Instinct Photography, providing you with a tailored wedding photography package that brings you an exciting, fun and stress free experience. Whatever your requirements, from one of Oxfords leading, highly recommended and customer service driven wedding photographers, I am here to help capture your wedding day experience, your way! All my wedding photography packages include guaranteed all day photographer coverage from Bridal Preparations to the First Dance, No Time Limits! Working in this way, I am able to capture special moments as they unfold naturally, resulting in genuine, spontaneous, vibrant images that you can treasure for a lifetime. Of course, I would be delighted to take more formal pictures, as I do believe they play an important part in creating a treasured historical record. But! I will always try to keep them to a minimum so that they don’t take up too much time. The number of weddings I undertake each year is capped at 15, as this allows me to devote more time, love and energy to each and every couple I work with. And because I enjoy it so much, it’s important for me to find like-minded, fun and bubbly couples who are looking for a photographer with character to represent their style and energy. If you would like this to be you, I’d love for you to get in touch! Kevin | Photographer Oxford

Wedding Review
A huge 5 * for Kevin who effortlessly created some amazing images from our wedding day. We feel truly blessed that we made the right decision in asking Kevin to do our pictures. Such a great guy and great talent. We hope to have some family portraits taken in the summer too. We will be in touch

The perfect person to photograph our wedding
From the moment we met Kevin we knew he was the perfect person to photograph our wedding, and we were not wrong! After our initial enquiry Kevin invited us to his lovely studio where we met him and he made us feel very relaxed right from the start. Kevin showed us his portfolio and explained his services and packages clearly without putting any pressure on us at all. After meeting him we both knew we wanted Kevin as our photographer and confirmed our booking with Kevin later that day as we didn’t want anyone else to snap him up first! Communication from Kevin was excellent leading up to our wedding, everything was very straightforward, and he was always so friendly and approachable. On our wedding day Kevin arrived in plenty of time and even spent time walking around the venue (in the rain!) while we were getting ready, looking for the best places to take pictures over the course of the day. We were blessed with some sunshine later on in the day and Kevin found us straight away and whisked us outside so he could photograph us in the sunshine before it disappeared again. We are so glad he did that and can honestly say our photographs are unbelievable. During the ceremony we didn't even notice Kevin taking pictures, so our photos are so natural and really capture the emotion. Our group photos are exactly what we wanted too, and Kevin was so patient, polite and professional. Kevin fitted in so well on the day and we felt like he was one of the guests and that we had known him for ages. Our family and friends also said how professional Kevin was and what a nice person he is, he took time to have a chat with many of them. Kevin stayed until after our first dance and made sure he caught up with us before he left, making sure we had a lovely day and giving us his congratulations. Kevin posted a few preview shots a couple of days after our wedding. We were blown away by these and were so excited to see the rest of them. We viewed our photographs a few weeks later. Kevin had created a slideshow with all of our photographs which he put to some music and played for us on a big screen - this was such a lovely way to relive our wonderful day and was a very special emotional moment. Kevin went through our album options and explained everything to us clearly. We chose our options and colours and were excited to see the final products. Kevin made sure we had our album delivered before Christmas, and we couldn't be happier with the final product, the colours of the album are gorgeous and the photographs tell the story of our day wonderfully. We can’t thank Kevin enough for everything, right from our first meeting to the final album and photographs. We will recommend Kevin highly to anyone who is looking for a photographer in the future. Thank you Kevin! Love Emma and Jon

Guests have also said how nice and great Kevin was
We hired Kevin at Potters Instinct Photography to capture our wedding day, and were so glad we did. Right from the get go, Kevin was reassuring and approachable. We arranged to meet him in advance at the venue to go through our visions and see what ideas he had had as he had also visited the venue in his own time. Kevin was great and managed to get some absolutely fab photos of two people who don’t really like having their photos taken. He managed to blend into the day so much so that we barely noticed he was there. The photos/moments that he managed to capture are truly magical. We have had so many compliments on the photos and feel so lucky to be able to look back on the story of the day through the beautiful photos. Not only have we had compliments on the photos, our guests have also said how nice and great Kevin was. If you’re unsure whether Kevin is right for you, all I can say is that he comes highly recommended by The Todd’s and drop him a message or call, you won’t regret it!

He is as discreet as he is talented!
Kevin is an artist - as pure and simple as that. Within 5 minutes of meeting Kevin at his house, Craig and I knew he was The One for us! And surely the attached photographs prove that. They perfectly reflect the love, laughter, joy, happiness and vibrant colours of the day. And we didn't even know he was there!! He is as discreet as he is talented! Kevin, we cannot thank you enough for making our special day even more special. Ceri and Craig xxx

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

This is a near-impossible question to answer! There have been so many memories from so many weddings at different times of the day. I feel extremely privileged to live each of my couples wedding days alongside them. Sometimes moments bring me to tears because I am so involved in the moment. It's a wonderful place to be, I adore my job!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Genuine, Relaxed, Funny, Friend, Your Day not mine

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am very proud of the customer service I enjoy providing to my couples. Limiting myself with up to 15 weddings a year, I am able to spend far more time with each couple, rather than them being amoungst a conveyor belt type photographer who takes on so much work they are unable to provide the best service possible to their couples. I am also extremely proud of the very high quality and unique products I can provide as part of your wedding day experience.

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

Don't over plan. A wedding day is more fun when you both can just relax and enjoy being with the people you love. Getting worried about any minor inconsistencies in your wedding day plan or clock watching will make for bad photographs. Relax and be happy, that is when I will get the best images of you and your guests!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

My process is very detailed; for a reason, to make your wedding day as relaxed and stress-free as possible. I would love to talk to you in person about how I can work with you!

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

It may sound a little boring, a photo of everyone at your wedding day. But, it is an amazing image that is a historical record of everyone who was there! An image you can look back on for years to

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

Don't over plan! What will be will be on your wedding day. Getting stressed about every little detail and every little minute on the clock will not make you enjoy your experience together. Being relaxed will make amazing photographs!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I would love you to read my website blog on Rainy Weddings! Here is the link! https://pottersinstinctphotography.co.uk/what-to-do-if-it-rains-on-my-wedding-day/

Describe how you got into photography.

My wife and I got engaged and she bought me a DSLR camera and an engagement gift! (Lucky Me!) Then I have spent the years after passionately learning photography and constantly wanting to improve my craft and service to my couples.
