I’m a Dorset boy born and raised originally from Poole but now living in the sleepy village of Ferndown with my fiancé Jodie. I wasn’t all that academic at school and went straight into full time employment with local cosmetics company Lush. I still work with lush full time as a global brand manager. Craft beer wine and cheese lover, I love all things american, my obsessions started from playing hockey in Orlando as a 13 year old. I’ve traveled most of the east coast while living on North Carolina on a full time hockey contract and this has been a huge part of my life and the southern hospitality has made me the man I am today. When I moved back to the UK I picked up a camera as a new hobby and its snowballed from there, I’ve been published in several wedding and photography magazines, shot portraits for Ted Baker’s Ray Kelvin and worked with industry leading photographers. One of my favourite things to photography is two people totally in love. Capturing those intimate and personal moments between two people is a beautiful thing and I’m lucky enough to call it my job. I love and strive to capture those real moments between two people, these are the moments and memories we want to look back on. I want to have fun with you on your wedding day as this is reflected in the images I’ll capture. So lets go and have some fun get a little dirty and make some memories and capture not only the day but the emotion involved. There is no limit to the number of images I take on the day. You will receive all images edited and colour corrected to a high standard presented in a hand crafted eco-friendly personalised wooden box on USB. All bookings come with a pre-wedding consultation, in which we would discuss the finer details of your big day and answer any questions you may have.

Simon was a total professional. Nothing was too much to ask, even when asked to take a sunset photo outside. Keep up the good work.
