Full Description
I keep my photography style as natural as possible. I try to create images from a spectator’s point of view and in an unobtrusive manner. My main aim is to create a narrative of the day so I am constantly on the lookout for characters to help build the emotion and give depth to the story. I also like to take time out with the couple and create some natural portraits. I try not to overly complicate the session and keep it as simple as possible. So what type of photography do I offer? Well I offer a mixture of traditional and documentary. Social documentary, reportage, candid, photo-journalistic or storybook wedding photography are just some of the titles used to express the photography type. I sometimes use all of the words to describe my style of wedding photography. It doesn’t really matter. I approach the day to document it as it unfolds. I really enjoy blending in and capturing the little moments of interaction, fun and laughter. These are the shots I am always looking for when I approach a wedding . I love the fact that I can stand out of the way, sometimes behind a wall or hedge to take the photographs. At other times I am right in the middle of the action and it is great that nobody seems to notice me and I am able to capture those moments. I get a real buzz at these times and lose myself within the work. It is great for the bride & groom to look back on their day through my images. The images, as well as the memories will be the link back to their special day.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Anthony
Hi all, Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life and you need to make sure you get it right. Remember your images will be with you a life-time and beyond so make sure you invest well and do not scrimp. Make sure you have a good look through your chosen photographers website and become familiar with the work. Make sure you have a list of questions you would like to ask and if possible set up a meeting. I find a meeting essential and very helpful for both sides.

Photos with the wow factor!
Anthony from Special day captured our day perfectly! From first contact Anthony was fantastic, always professional but friendly and approachable - exactly what you want from your wedding photographer to get those natural, relaxed shots. Anthony’s communication was excellent and we had lots of guests comment on the day how great our photographer was. On the day Anthony worked tirelessly whilst managing to blend into the hustle and bustle of the day, so much so we were often unaware of his presence. Anthony worked exactly to what we discussed before our wedding day, even managing to fit in some beautiful evening shots we wanted. We’re in the process of choosing our album pics which were sent to us less than 4 weeks after the wedding and again Anthony’s communication has been second to none! We can’t wait to see the finished album!

The best day of our lives captured beautifully...
Anthony is a true professional and we are so glad we chose him to be our wedding photographer! Throughout our wedding planning, Anthony was always on hand to offer advice and also travelled a fair distance (we are not south country based) to meet with us to discuss what we wanted captured on our special day. Despite the very wet weather on the day, Anthony did an AMAZING job capturing such natural photos; all our guests commented that Anthony just blended right in and was not intrusive at all. We have so many lovely photos to choose from and we cannot wait to see our finished album!

Such a phenomenal way of capturing the day
Anthony was the most chilled out photographer and never once got in the way-in all honesty, I forgot he was there until he said he was leaving at about 10.30! Anthony managed to capture the most emotional parts of the day exactly as they were. I would definitely recommend him at the drop of a hat! Absolutely awesome photgrapher!

Simply perfect wedding video
Anthony was professional, friendly and fun from start to finish and the end result is fantastic. He was our videographer for the day and was so discreet we barely knew he was there but the result he produced was the perfect snapshot of our day, excellently and very artistically done and something we can treasure and share forever....also a perfect length, long enough to capture all those important moments, yet not long enough to bore any of our friends! He would come extremely highly recommended by us!

What is your most memorable wedding?

I have done so many now but one of my most memorable weddings was a beautiful outdoor wedding on Exmoor in Somerset. It was a beautiful English summer day and all the guests were very happy to be there. There was so much love throughout the day which really comes across in the images.
