Full Description
If you are looking for someone to take images of your day that will capture the moments, the emotion and the story of the day, then I might be the photographer for you. My idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style, I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between. Of course I can also do the more formal, posed images when required....the parents or grandparents normally demand them!

He was truly exceptional.
Terry was our photographer in the October for our Autumn Wedding. He was truly exceptional. We have had a serious headache trying to choose our album photos as all the photos were simply stunning. I couldn't ask for any better photos to show how perfect our Wedding day was. I would highly recommend him to anyone to capture the photos for the best day of your life. Thank you again Terry!

He was fantastic.
We booked Terry for our wedding on 14/09/19. He was fantastic. He was prompt, funny and didn't moan about the fact he was having to follow us around most of the day, in the heat. He took photos from me in the car arriving at the Church, right up to the first dance -as requested. He's very organised and sticks to his word. Our photos were ready exactly a month after we were married and we are thrilled with them. Thanks so much.

We are extremely happy with the photos.
We hired Terry for our wedding in August. He arrived early and started taking photos of us getting ready, then throughout the ceremony and right up till the first dance and cutting of the cake. He was professional, funny and took photos of everything we asked. We are extremely happy with the photos. Thank you for being a part of our big day and capturing memories to look back on in years to come.

Terry was absolutely amazing!
Terry was absolutely amazing at our wedding, he was professional, hilarious and kept all our guests laughing. He stayed in contact with us throughout the planning process and made every effort to achieve beautiful photos even on the hottest day of the year, we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. He made us feel so comfortable and took all the photos we asked for, we are so excited for our wedding album as the ‘sneak peak’ photos are incredible. Thanks again Terry, you truly are outstanding at your job.

Terry was amazing!!!
Terry was amazing!!! Very professional but yet friendly & easy going. We had total confidence in him & didn’t even realise he was there half the time so got some great pictures that were a nice surprise when we got to see them. Extremely reasonable cost as well for the package we received. Overall really pleased no complaints & would recommend Terry to anyone planning their wedding!

Terry was very professional & funny. He could have been a guest he mingled in so well, plus the photos where truly amazing. The style of photographs were brilliant, all natural no poses unless people asked and Terry will definitely capture some of the funniest and best moments that make up your special day. Highly recommended and a true gent.

What is your most memorable wedding?

A Jane Austen themed wedding at the Temple of Apollo at Stourhead. In the 2005 version of the film Pride & Prejudice starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen this was the setting for Mr Darcy's proposal.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Capture, Moment, Natural, Laughter, Love

What about your business are you most proud of?

I pride myself on customer service and I just love it when I get great reviews from couples because I have gone above and beyond to ensure I capture their day.

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

Don't build your wedding around the photography. The photography should be built around your wedding.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A Bride who loves horses had a surprise when, unknown to her, her mother had booked her a carriage and horses.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Right from the first contact I am just a phone call away should you have any questions, worries or concerns. I will chat over the phone initially and then meet with you at your reception venue so we can discuss the photography on the day. If it is a church wedding then I will attend the rehearsal which is normally a day or two before the wedding.

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

Definitely the first kiss as Mr & Mrs!!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Brollies and welly boots. Splashing in puddles can be great fun and make for some brilliant photos!!

Describe how you got into photography.

I first had to use an SLR for work in the early 80s. From the moment I picked up a camera it was my passion. I can't describe the feeling inside it gives to capture a great shot...you either know that feeling or you don't!!
