Full Description
Getting married is one of the most incredible things you will do in your life. Putting how you feel on your day into words is difficult, but it can be achieved with pictures. Which is where I come in; capturing the emotion, the journey, your story. Wedding photography really is an investment for life, and future generations. I feel it is so important to capture the day perfectly, and preserve forever. You write the script. My focus is then upon documenting your story beautifully, through observation, not orchestration, with attention paid to every detail. I believe a wedding should be photographed sympathetically and subtly. A quiet observer, blending into the background, telling the Story, from start to finish. And when I say the finish, that means capturing every element of your day, right till the end, if you wish.

Robin was the most fantastic wedding photographer. We are absolutely thrilled with the photos. Most of the comments back from our friends have been that they are speechless and there are no words to describe how good they are. He fitted in perfectly to our day and the pictures truly represent the emotion and atmosphere. We will always be so grateful to Robin for capturing the memories of our very special day.

The service that Robin provided was excellent from start the finish. He immediately made us feel at ease and guided us through the entire process. He was also very accommodating with our ideas and requests. Above all else though the photographs that Robin produced were truly extraordinary. I am no expert in photography but Robin was able to see various situations and opportunities that looked fairly ordinary and turn them into the most incredible images. Robin is extremely talented.

Robin struck...
Robin struck and incredible balance between being everywhere but without being in the way. He guided where needed but he was never pushy. I hate being in front of a camera and he relaxed me. The photos have caught moments I would have otherwise missed and he has done it so beautifully. The presentation of his work was of the highest quality throughout and on all mediums. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

We absolutely loved everything about Robins photography...
We absolutely loved everything about Robins photography. We had an amazing pre wedding photo shoot at the venue of our choice and then he went over and above on the day to ensure that every special moment of the day was captured, even hiring an extra photographer (at no extra cost) for the morning, church and arriving at the venue. The photos have captured the day and we absolutely love his style and are so pleased we will always have these to look back on, a worthwhile investment!

Robin was highly recommended by family...
Robin was highly recommended by family/friends. We had seen samples of his work and were very impressed. He made the whole process simple and stress free. He travelled to us for all pre-wedding discussions. On the day he arrived promptly and worked efficiently and discretely. He gave clear instruction/advice on all shots and thoroughly covered our list of photograph requests. The collection of photographs taken were magnificent, far beyond our expectations. Very talented, he deserves to win.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

One where an RAF Sea King Helicopter flew above a lake in Wales to salute the groom, who was a decorated pilot. A seriously emotional and unforgettable moment!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Relaxed yet organised, beautiful documentary

What about your business are you most proud of?

My anticipation of natural light to ensure my clients look incredible, and my dedication to ensuring that I cover every detail of the day from start to finish, and that means right until the end of the day!

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

Always ask to see a complete wedding from a photographer, not just the portfolio. It is the complete set of images that you will receive after all.

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

When the groom arranged a performance of Les Miserable by opera singers as a complete for the bride, the whole reception stood for an ovation, such a beautiful and unforgettable touch.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I always like to meet first before a booking, to ensure that we have a great fit, and that we know that working together is going to be amazing. This relationship is essential, and we build on this through the pre-wedding shoot, and further meetings as required, so that on the day everything just flows seamlessly. On the day I photograph quietly, through observation, not orchestration. It is the couple's day after all, and my focus is upon documenting everything as it happens.

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

The photo which they weren't expecting, but which perfectly sums up their day! I don't like to be too prescriptive, it is down to personal taste. But it has to be one where the couple feel totally at ease with each other, and totally happy. Trust your photographer, and for me I will always seek that one shot which shows the couple in the place they have chosen to get married, in the most magical light I can find.

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

If I am being asked to take a particular photo, then perhaps it isn't that original, but I certainly get asked to capture certain moments, which I then interpret in my own style Perhaps my favourite so far has been a first dance high in the lake District Mountains at sunset, I haven't seen this anywhere else.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Relax, and enjoy the day, as the rain really doesn't make a difference, just carry on! Rainy days produced the most beautiful soft light, and the reflections are incredible. Don't necessarily see rain as a bad thing, a great photographer will know how to take the best shots, and you probably won't remember it was even raining at all!

Describe how you got into photography.

I picked up a camera at the age of 5, and have never looked back. It is my passion, and why I exist. If I am not shooting a wedding, I can be found somewhere else, taking photos of other things. Photographing a wedding is not a job for me, it is what I love, and I feel this really comes through in my work.
