Full Description
Why me? A good documentary wedding photographer has to be an amazing story teller. I like to connect with you and understand a bit about you both so I know what the personalities are. That way I can tell your story creatively and honestly and have a few laughs along the way. I'm meticulous in my approach to a wedding, I always recce the venue beforehand if possible and note down particular interests including what happens if it rains. My work ethics I love what I do, I struggle to call it work as I enjoy it so much. I'm a person that likes to go into detail from making sure all paperwork is squared away to actually spending time at the venue a few weeks in advance and getting to know the layout of the place. I believe in equipping myself with as much info on the venue and layout as possible as it makes a huge difference on the day, and when it rains it can change things very quickly so having a few umbrellas on hand is just one of the small details I cover. What do i offer? Depending on what package you select or extras, you will receive a selection of images within 48hrs after the wedding that you can download from your private online gallery already optimized for social media as I understand your excitement at wanting to share some images from your big day. I continue to upload images as I work my way through and include a few Facebook templates you can use and share to showoff your wedding in style. USB and presentation box comes engraved with your names and date of wedding and any albums etc are supplied within 4 - 6 weeks after wedding day. Prints, canvases etc can be supplied within a few days notice and you can select images for these online. I offer 10% discount on all my photographic services to current and past members of the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force including emergency services and NHS. Just mention when enquiring. Fully qualified Makeup Artist who works with us is included in select wedding packages at no extra cost.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Shaun
Wedding photography should be considered an art, this is something I truly believe in. As the photographer at your wedding, I believe I should be everywhere throughout the day without being seen or even being felt. I like to have an invisible presence while capturing the moments of your special day. I look forward to hearing from you.

Just perfect
We could not fault Shaun and can’t recommend him highly enough. As a couple who aren’t big fans of posing for photos (sorry Shaun!) we knew we needed a photographer who would slot into our day and allow us to enjoy it while still capturing those special moments. Shaun did exactly that and we couldn’t be more grateful - and we’ve only seen a small selection of the shots so far. Not to mention the fact he supported us through organising 2 weddings in a global pandemic! A truly lovely guy to chat to and we couldn’t have been happier. Thank you, Shaun!

I couldn't recommend Shaun highly enough!
we were lucky to have him capture our wedding and he did it beautifully. We are blown away by the quality of his photos, his attention to detail and how he captured the day. You will not be disappointed if you book him for your wedding! He was professional from start to finish but made us feel at ease from the first time we met him and helped us understand the process. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he is just an honest, genuine and all round good guy and brilliant photographer! Thanks for everything Shaun!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Would have to be my sisters wedding, it was no set style more a mixture of everything including Irish Dancing etc; It has to be one of the most unique weddings to date.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Reportage Documentary Quirky Fun Natural

What about your business are you most proud of?

I have had images published by some of the bigger brand names including rental companies and have had various images of Game Of Thrones locations published.

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

Be yourself, identify what style you want and trust your photographer to do what he does best. Don't prepare for the photographer we are prepared for you.

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

I have seen buttons with the date on them which was a classy touch and home made mini barrels with Guinness in them.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Introduction followed by a consultation for us to find out a little more about each other. I like hearing about the story so I can tell yours as true and accurate as possible on the day. Booking takes place followed by signed contract and date for pre-wedding shoot and any other requirements. I stay in contact along the way.

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

I see this more as in individual thing, every couple has their ideas and vision of what they want. Some love a natural photo, while others love a good formal photo.

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

Group photos, majority of weddings want them and it's not a problem but i like to mix up the standing order and place them in a way to make it interesting instead of the usual in a line photo that lacks character.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

I recommend clear umbrellas , possibly wellies if it's an outdoor shoot. Lot's of potential to a rainy wedding and gives the photographer a chance to get creative.

Describe how you got into photography.

I got into photography in a previous work environment, capturing sights only few others would have access to. I moved onto portrait photography and landscape photography. Wedding photography came later and i fell in love with it.
