Hi, I am Neil and I am a Sheffield based wedding photographer covering weddings in South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and even further afield by special request.
If you choose me to be part of your day, I will be there not just to take photos of you, what I want to do is record the emotion, the feeling, the goosebumps, the butterflies and the tears.
I prefer to capture natural wedding moments as they happen rather than a posed look. I use available light over flash wherever possible as I believe it gives the images a much more romantic and well, natural look. That being said, I will never sacrifice taking the shot just because my ego doesn't think it will look good on my website, it's about you not my portfolio.
If you choose me to be part of your day, I will not just be there to take photos of you. What I want to do is record the emotion, the feeling, the goosebumps, the butterflies, the tears. I want my images to be something you will look back on in 5, 15, 30 years time and be able to feel how you did on that day. I want your children and grandchildren to discover your album in years to come and to sit down with you to hear the story behind every picture. I want them to feel the excitement, happiness and love that you created on that day.
I don't want to direct you to put the shoes here, look this way, look that way. I want you to remember it because that's the way it happened, that's the way you felt.
I like to use a more traditional style for the group shots that most Brides and Grooms want but, also a relaxed, contemporary almost documentary style to record all of the other non scripted parts of your day that would otherwise slip by unnoticed.
I also want to take time with as a couple for half an hour or so on the day to create some stunning portraits that you will want to have hanging on your wall at home.
