"We are so pleased we found him!"
Ste photographed my wedding in November at Fulham Palace in London, and was also kind enough to throw in a free engagement shoot in London in September. What had consistently caught my eye about his photos during my photographer research process was his highly emotional captures (so many laughs and excited faces), very creative use of lighting and angles (e.g. creating beautiful human silhouette shots against epic landscapes, and an eye for finding beautiful pops of colour in the background you wouldn't normally notice) and natural but crisp colour grading (basically as you would actually remember things happening in real life but more vivid, rather than an over-stylised colour filter). These traits were absolutely reflected in our final photos, which captured an array of truly beautiful, entertaining and most importantly, real moments from across the day that we still love looking through three months on. We received many guest comments along the lines of "you must be so pleased with how these turned out", "wow he really managed to capture everyone's individual traits and personalities" and "how did he manage to get me smiling in EVERY photo?". So many guests also commented - and we wholeheartedly agree - that aside from the quality of Ste's photos he was just a really great person to have around on the day - personable, calming and professional, which in turn led to everyone looking very relaxed and happy around the camera for some great shots. Additionally, when he came to give us a congratulatory hug after signing the registers and chat about the aspects he enjoyed about our day, it really felt genuine and personal. In terms of customer service, Ste was also so patient with us in the run up preparations when we were bombarding him with questions and indecisiveness about when and where to have our engagement shoot (as we were working with some rather restrictive work schedules). During the morning preparations I also showed him a very hastily drawn up (but quite specific) list of shot requests for specific moments/backdrops etc I wanted captured during the day, in the vague hopes he might be able to accommodate one or two of them. He was more than happy to take this list on board with about 5 minutes warning and miraculously managed to remember and execute most of these, including capturing my husband pulling many secret silly faces behind my back, which still make me laugh so much. It was an absolute delight to work with Ste and we are so pleased we found him amidst the seemingly thousands of options in this line of work. 10/10 would recommend!

"Don't even look further!"
I can't recommend Ste enough. He has the talent to capture raw emotion and the candid shots you only dream of having on your wedding day. A lovely guy too. Don't even look further.

"Capture everything you could wish for on the day"
Ste is a fantastic photographer! His pictures are stunning and capture everything you could wish for on the day. We've so many 'favourites' from throughout the day, and all our family and friends love them too! He is also a genuinely great guy who has a clear passion for what he does, and we felt incredibly comfortable with him. We feel lucky that we found him, and cannot recommend him enough!

"Ste brought our wedding to life"
Ste brought our wedding to life in ways which we couldn't have ever envisaged. We chose Ste because of his philosophy to 'shoot weddings from the inside out'; being close to the action, capturing all of the love and fun. He did just that, while getting along with our guests super well. We are so happy and know that we made the biggest decision (who to shoot the wedding), our best decision.

"Your search ends here."
If your searching for a wedding photographer, your search ends here. Our wedding was amazing and the experience was relived when we viewed our wedding pictures with Ste. There were no awkward posing, all natural pictures taken at realtime throughout our day. Our guests all commented on how friendly and approachable Ste was. If nobody knew he was the photographer they would of assumed he was a guest. If I could do it all again, I would pick Ste without doubt. Amazing and couldnt thank him enough.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Candid, Real, Authentic, Creative, Emotional

What about your business are you most proud of?

All of my couples that have trusted me who are now essentially a part of the business as they now represent my ability to do an incredible job.

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

Book the suppliers you love before someone else does.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

At a wedding it sounds cliche but i don't see myself "taking photos" it's more about capturing what's happening in front of me. My process with my couples is to build trust with them so they can really just be themselves and I can just capture that in an emotive and creative way.

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

I'm not so sure couples should worry too much about photography and pictures on their wedding day. My aim is to make sure couples just enjoy their wedding day as much as possible and not worry about the photos. This is why I like to chat with my couples to understand them and what their looking for in a wedding photographer. My short answer would be; Enjoy your wedding day don't worry about that "one" photo and I promise you'll have an extremely higher number of images you incredibly love."
