Full Description
Weddings are not only an important day in a couple’s lives, but a beautiful prologue to their stories. It marks both the beginning and end of a phase of their lives, as they leave their separate lives behind and begin a new life together Second to a photographer, I am a storyteller, and extremely passionate about photography, and believe the mark of this new chapter needs to be told in the best possible way. My goal is to capture natural, beautiful, fun and unposed wedding photos, giving you a comprehensive story of your wedding in whatever format it takes! With my style and my experience, I will bring these special memories to life for years to come, in a creative, honest, and beautiful way. I believe a wedding should flow. It is a day to be enjoyed by everyone, meaning a lot to not only the bride and groom but all their loved ones too. It’s this that carries my passion for wedding photography; I follow the day as it happens, capturing all those special moments of not just the bride and groom, but friends reuniting, surprise family guests, and every joyous hug and tear shed. It’s these moments that build your wedding day to leave you with special memories you will cherish. I like to be honest and clear with my prices and whats covered, no confusing pricing structures or bespoke packages here, just one price. >>Coverage from £600.00<< My commitment and promises to you No fake smiles. No interfering with your day. An Individual approach to each wedding. My absolute best efforts, skills and dedication, before, during and after your wedding. Honest and true images of your day. 100% guaranteed to be free from cliché!!! Please take a look around a few of my most recent weddings, have a read of my blog and check out my Instgram, Facebook or Twitter feed to see what I'm like! One last thing - I PROMISE I WON'T MAKE YOU SAY "CHEESE"!

Andy is an awesome wedding photographer!
Andy is an awesome wedding photographer. His documentary style is unobtrusive yet produces great, natural results. He’s the most responsive person we’ve ever dealt with and incredibly flexible. It’s clear he takes a great deal of pride in what he does. We were delighted with our wedding ceremony photos and look forward to having him photograph our wedding reception when we can finally host this.

So impressed with SaywellHQ!
So impressed with SaywellHQ, very professional and friendly. His natural documentary style photos made everyone feel very comfortable and at ease. Pictures have come out amazing and just what we were looking for. We also had his photofilm, a unique "wedding video", which meant we could have the speeches and vows played over the pictures from day, meaning we could share the ceremony with those who could not come. Would strongly recommend him to anyone.

The photos are brilliant and just what we wanted!
Well, planning a wedding through a global pandemic isn’t easy but from the moment I booked Andy at a wedding fair last October, I knew that he would be the right photographer for us. He has kept us regularly updated throughout the year and checked in on us to see how we were doing and the plans going forward. I don’t particularly like being photographed and was sceptical about having him around for the pre ceremony and getting ready but he was so friendly and we didn’t even know he was there to be quite honest! The photos are brilliant and just what we wanted to capture our special day, even if there was only 15 guests that had to wear masks but from the images, you wouldn’t know that this was a very small, micro wedding. I just want to say the biggest thank you to you Andy because you made everything so much easier for us in a stressful time and everyone at the wedding loved you. I will definitely be recommending you to others!

Would 100% recommend Andy, really helpful and flexible with us having to change our wedding date and venue numerous times due to COVID. friendly and non-intrusive documentary style wedding photography and the photos are amazing and exactly what we wanted.

Though the COVID Problems - Andy has been Great
Andy has been very supportive throughout the whole process. He was incredibly quick to offer support and advice, and was eager to make sure we were happy with whatever decisions were being made. It was obvious that Andy has our best interests at heart, and on our wedding day he was extremely flexible to accommodate the changing nature of the event. He seemed to be everywhere at once, and captured a fantastic range of different moments that occurred during our day. We are so pleased with the quality of the photos, and the speed at which we received them (1 week after the wedding day!). There are a large range of photos to choose from and we have loved looking through them and seeing the moments he captured. We can't wait to use them to create some lovely photo albums to be able to look back and remember the day in the future.

Andy- professional, helpful, such a friendly guy!
Andy was our photographer at our wedding party and we were so impressed from the start of planning to the end result. He really is super talented! Andy blended into the party perfectly, you didn't know he was there. How he managed to capture so much of the night from one side of the room to the other, I will never know! The photos tell the story of the night... you really can remember everything when you flick through them! For any brides wanting every special moment captured (as well as the funny ones) I'd highly recommend Andy- professional, helpful, and such a friendly guy!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Wow - that's a tough question! Every wedding is different - people, venue, weather - all can be good or bad! My first wedding will always be special as it totally made my head spin.. I've been fortunate to photograph many different types of weddings from Asian, outdoor forest weddings, big church weddings, small village hall weddings and even a wedding on a bus... I can honestly say that I have yet to shoot a wedding day I didn't enjoy - each one is unique.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Honest, True, Candid, Fun, Cliche Free!

What about your business are you most proud of?

The kind words received from my happy couples, genuinely takes my breath away when people take the time to leave reviews, send thank you cards and recommend me to their family and friends.

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

Make sure you fully understand what you are paying for - don't get stung by people charging you extra for things that would normally be included! It's like buying a car and being charged extra for the windows! I do not limit the number of photos I supply from your day!

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

A flash mob of guests singing the couples favourite song - they had no idea!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

The first step - we always have a chin wag on the phone so we can get a vibe for each other and make sure that my style works for you. I'm always totally honest; and if my style doesn't fit with what you are after I will always let you know and give you some advice on other options. If after the phone call you wanted to book me to cover your special day; I will send you a booking form, then complete a wedding contract and after a £200 deposit is paid - you are all booked up. Around 6 weeks before the wedding we meet up (typically at the venue) and discuss the final details, timings etc.. Around a week or at the latest two weeks after your wedding I will upload your photos to your secure online gallery - from here you can download, print or share.

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

Being a documentary photographer, I don't work to a shot list - but I have photos in my mind that I always look to capture.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Nothing! Rain is just a bit of water - get a brolly and have some fun!

Describe how you got into photography.

I got into photography when my wife got a DSLR for her make-up blog and I was forever using her Canon 600d; so I was told to buy my own...
