Full Description
I am a photographer who specialises in wedding, portrait, event & corporate photography. A real "people person", I love nothing better than getting to know my subjects and capturing the real person. Your wedding day is one of the best days of your life. You need more than just a record of your special day - you need fabulous photographs that bring lovely memories flooding back of your wonderful day. I understand this. I can shoot either the more modern informal, reportage / documentary style photography, the more formal traditional style or a mixture of both. The decision of what style I shoot is completely up to you. I am located in Mirfield, West Yorkshire and I am available for weddings, portraits, events, christenings, corporate work, parties or for individual commissions in the Yorkshire-area and beyond

Simon was our amazing wedding photographer
Simon was our amazing wedding photographer. Check our pics out on his site. We wanted something totally relaxed and colourful and he captured it perfectly. He ran us round in the car did loads of research and all our guests loved him. Cannot recommend him highly enough.

Capture[d] some pristine moments beautifully!
I hired Simon for my sister's wedding and wasn't disappointed. He shot from the first curling of the hair tongs in the morning, through all of the ceremony and well into the evening and the bride and groom's first dance. For the whole day he was able to get into all the right positions to capture some pristine moments beautifully. He was always there if somebody wanted at specific moment capturing but blended in and never got in the way of the happy day just flowing as it should.

You did a superb job!
Thank you so much for all your photos. We have gone through them several times now and we are both absolutely stunned by how well you have captured the day. You did a superb job! You made me so proud and glad that I chose you as our photographer. Having never met you before I was going on compliments from others about your work and I can honestly say that it is one of the best decisions that I have ever made and they were totally right about how amazing you are. You did such a brilliant job and we are all so happy.

He did a fantastic job
We recently booked Simon for our daughter's wedding. As well as taking fantastic photos of the bride and groom, he did a fantastic job of capturing all the little details and the happiness of the day. Strongly recommended for beautiful and original photographs.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

The wedding of Siobhan and Martin at the wonderful Darwin Holiday Cottages in the beautiful Peak District full of happiness, lovely guests, fireworks and plenty of sparkle(rs)!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, relaxed, organised, artistic and flexible.

What about your business are you most proud of?

That I give the happy couple a wonderful record of their big day.

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

Ask your photographer to take some photos of the two of you later in the day - say between the end of the wedding breakfast and the start of the evening do - as the lighting will be less harsh and the photos much more flattering.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I first meet with the couple at the venue(s) a few months before the wedding to plan the day. I then follow this up with a draft plan which the bride and groom can then modify via email until it's exactly what they want.

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

The bride and groom walking through a "tunnel" of their guests throwing confetti / blowing bubbles / holding sparklers. Much better than a free for all session.

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

A photo of a bride and groom holding each other with the bride appearing to have written "Love" with a sparkler.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

That you talk this over with your photographer at your pre-wedding meeting at the venue so you can plan for rain. You can either take photos inside the venue or make use of pretty coloured umbrellas that match your chosen colour scheme if you venture outside.

Describe how you got into photography.

Buying a digital camera in 2004 was the next gadget to buy, this led to me getting into photography, buying a "proper" digital SLR camera in 2006 and studying for a photography A-Level at evening classes from 2006-08. I then set up my part-time photography business in 2009.
