Wedding Photography that captures the big events & the little moments
There for the tears and the laughter, the reactions and the emotions, the big moments that matter and the little things that make your wedding day yours, John will make sure he captures the essence of this once in a lifetime occasion for you to treasure forever. John is always on hand to offer you advice when you need it and make sure you get the most out of him on your wedding day. From the moment he arrives to the moment he leaves John work’s tirelessly to tell the beautiful story of your wedding day – exactly as it happens – through his photographs.
In the words of John: “I work discreetly through your wedding day, capturing natural moments rather than posed and the informal rather than formal. I was once described as a ‘silent wedding ninja’ which to me was the biggest compliment I could be given – if I do my job well most people will not know I was there until they see the photograph to prove I was.
I am there to observe, I don’t have loads of large intrusive equipment and you will rarely see me standing still for long. I always have two cameras on the go at all times and never have you hanging around whilst I change lenses or set up lights – to be discreet is my aim. I am there to capture the moments that happen not stage things that don’t. Your day is there to be enjoyed and I will always be working hard in the background to document those moments you can never get back.
I shoot weddings in a documentary, reportage style. I shoot naturally, not forcing moments and generally using natural light. I aim to be one of your guests not ‘the scary guy with the big camera’. I always chat to your family and friends to put them ease, I’m an expert on which side the button hole goes, I’ve lost count of the number of times the Swiss army knife in my camera bag has come to the rescue, I’ve given lifts to Brides & Grooms when things have gone wrong, delivered flowers and gifts and even been a witness. I like to be useful, I like to keep things natural and simply and above all I love to photograph those one off magic moments for you.
So why do I do it? Simply because I love it. Weddings are awesome. No two weddings are ever the same. Everyone is happy and looks amazing. You get to hear funny speeches and see moments no one else will ever witness. Something unexpected always happens (crazy weather, the toddler gate crushing the first dance, the wind blowing away the best mans speech) there is never a dull moment and that’s what I love. I get to photograph people having the most amazing day of their lives – and I wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.”
'Wonderful photos that are completely overwhelming and perfect in every way'
Hear what this very happy Bride & Groom thought of John, his service and his wedding photography:
“Where to start with the lovely John? Alongside all the other things that need to get sorted for a wedding, the process of choosing a photographer can be a little overwhelming. I remember, I emailed half a dozen and within the day I’d had a phone call from John in response. No pressure, just a friendly hello in introduction. Our whole day was built on making decisions based on feel… and I had a good feeling about John from the start.
We met for coffee and it became clear how passionate John is for his work. He shared examples but mainly indulged me hearing all about the plans for the big day and understating how he would fit in. It was incredibly reassuring to have John’s gentle guidance and experience, and that was true throughout, right up to and including the day.
And the end result - wonderful photos that are completely overwhelming and perfect in every way.” Helena & Edward
