Full Description
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.

Great day.
I was a guest at a wedding where Simon was the photographer. He was fab. Took the most interesting photos and stayed with the Bride and Groom all day and into the night, capturing beautiful and unstaged photos.

Wonderful experience
Simon made us feel confident in front of the camera, fantastic value for money and extremely high quality results, we are so glad we chose him to capture our special day. Photos we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

Could not have asked for a better photographer
I don't know where to start... Simon was amazing! From start to finish, me and my husband (who wasn't to keen on all the fuss of a wedding) were made to feel so comfortable and relaxed during all photos, which resulted in some beautiful natraul shots. All day long people commented on how good the photographer was and even 2 weeks later people are still saying it to me! I will forever recommend Simon!

A fantastic day.
What a fantastic day,made complete by Simons professional & friendly approach. How he manages to organise his many styles of photography, is a testament to his calmness and ability to make everyone relaxed, but at the same time making sure it is an enjoyable experience for all,especially for the bride & groom who could enjoy there day, with the knowledge that they had entrusted in Simon to come up with the photos they wanted. And he didn't disappoint!

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.
