Surrey Wedding Photographer

I’m an award-winning Surrey wedding photographer working across the UK and abroad. My distinctive approach combines artistic reportage with a natural and contemporary style of portraiture. I work to visually capture all of the emotion and spontaneous moments of your special day in a relaxed and unobtrusive manner, creating beautiful fine art images that you'll admire forever. With an extensive background in shooting documentaries for broadcast television and cinematography, I've developed my own unique style to document memories that reflect your personalities in the most creative and artistic way I can.

Award-winning, personal photography service in Surrey

Telling stories through the lens with my cameras is what I do best, and I’m delighted to be recognised as one of the UK’s Top 50 Wedding Photographers for two years running. Being highly regarded in my field of expertise fills me with immense pride. I'm always grateful for the accolades and wonderful exposure I receive for my photography services.

With over 500 weddings under my belt, I love my job and take immense pride in my work.

 

My personable approach quickly puts guests at ease as I'm taking pictures of them, enabling them to focus on the wedding. Relaxed people who are comfortable with the camera make for the best subjects, which is why this natural reportage approach produces gorgeous unstaged images, packed with personality. I pride myself on being unobtrusive but still managing to get right in the thick of the action at the decisive moment to capture the perfect frame. I'll always be friendly and approachable, enabling me to fit in and document the details as they unfold without getting in the way.

What do people think of my Surrey wedding photography?

My work regularly features in national magazines and numerous international wedding blogs across the web so please have a click around below to get a flavour of how I work. I'm delighted that I have a plethora of five-star reviews from happy couples - you can view these right here.

I love working at weddings in Surrey!

With its incredible variety of venues such as Wotton House, Great Fosters and Botleys Mansion, Surrey is a picturesque, characteristic place to photograph. It is the perfect backdrop for a love story with its romantic country inns, impressive stately homes, and stunning areas of natural beauty. Working within this county is mostly what I'm known for, however, I love to travel further afield around the country and destination weddings abroad.

Telling your unique wedding story

My key aim is to create beautiful images of your big day for you to treasure forever. Whether it's a rustic barn in Guildford or an elegant castle in Farnham, I have covered most venues within the county, so you're in safe hands! The photographic memories that I document will tell the epic story of your Surrey wedding day with an abundance of moving images for you to absorb, keep and enjoy.

 

As a wedding photographer, I feel it’s important to get to know you as a couple as you tie the knot. I want to understand your family structure so that I can introduce myself to them and put them at ease in front of the lens. You are the epicentre of the day and the key component; however, your wedding is also about your nearest and dearest who come to celebrate with you on this very important day.

So what can you expect when booking me to shoot your Surrey wedding??

  • An easy-going atmosphere for your special day in Surrey. Allowing everyone to relax, to just be themselves is one of the best things I can do as a photographer. I have a natural flair for mingling with people and making them feel at ease in front of the lens.
  • Humble, kind, and courteous. With that said, I also respect everyone’s boundaries, never being pushy or forceful during your special day. I believe being humble, kind, and courteous towards everyone is the key to creating great images that look natural and are full of life.
  • Unobtrusive. Blending in and not machine-gunning a wedding with my camera means you won’t even notice I’m there most of the time. I’m at one with the crowd and you can see this in my relaxed pictures.
  • Beautiful photographs of you as husband and wife. I'll create stunning images for you that capture the love, excitement, and intimate moments that you can cherish for a lifetime. Moments you didn't even realise or see with your own eyes. By understanding who is who, I can empathise with your family dynamic to ensure the memories I create are significant.
  • Telling your story. Being a documentary photographer, I have developed a passion for telling stories through a complete series of pictures. I know exactly when to capture the candid moments or those deeply romantic and timeless shots. Knowing when to get closer and when to step back is key to my style of photography.
  • A personable, candid approach. My images are unscripted and spontaneous. The moments are real. I work to ensure that everything I do and say integrates well with the tone of your special day.

Creative and Artistic Imagery

As you can see from my galleries, I understand how artistic and creative wedding images are brought to light. From the atmosphere and lighting to all the natural elements around me such as the sun setting on the horizon or the light seeping in from the clouds over the Surrey Hills. I'll click the shutter at just the right moment. I take photos that retain their artistic and creative flair, preserved freeze frames for decades in the family wedding album.

 

Each wedding is different

The couple, the venue, the dress, the guests - every day is different. No two weddings are the same, so I can tailor my packages to meet your specific needs. Bespoke packages can include an engagement shoot, and a range of beautiful handmade Italian leather albums to showcase your treasured memories. From the excitement as you walk down the aisle to the tears of joy as you exchange your vows during the ceremony, I'll be there to ensure you never miss a moment.

 

Each photography package includes coverage from the bridal preparations until after the first dance. You'll be able to view a stunning and intuitive photo gallery that you can share with your friends and family. Here you can download your high-resolution digital images and purchase prints for the wall with a variety of framing options to complement your colour and black and white photographs.

 

In addition to working as a Surrey wedding photographer, I travel nationwide and abroad. You can see lots of the areas that I've had the pleasure of working in here.

 

If you are getting married and like the style of my images and approach, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you and document the story of your big day.
