Newquay Wedding Photographers

I'm a wedding photographer based in Newquay Cornwall, but I will travel anywhere in the UK and Europe.

Creative wedding photography in Cornwall with a relaxed unscripted approach, letting the day unfold naturally, capturing story telling of love and happiness on your wedding day.

Telling your wedding day story, documenting the emotions, your proud parents, the first look, the laughter, fun and love that you shared with family and friends. Working with you and your guests in an informal fashion, letting the day unfold organically.

I shoot weddings with the style of reportage, candid or documentary wedding photography, which to me pretty much the same thing, capturing an unscripted story of your wedding day.

Destination Photography

Being a traveller at heart, the desire to experience different cultures and countries is something i love and has always intrigued me, must be my Viking blood.

I've lived in many different locations in the UK, France, and Spain, travelling around, photographing along the way. Combining my love of wedding photography with travel, to me is the perfect combination for me as a destination wedding photography.

If your looking to get married abroad, please do get in touch, I would love to document your special day wether in the UK or further afield overseas.

Wedding Photography Packages

We have three different wedding photography packages for you to choose depending on your budget.

Our first is the 3 hour package, which is aimed at documenting the ceremony then the family group shots. Depending where the ceremony is located to the venue, we would try and get photographs at the venue afterwards, it just depends on logistics on the day for the event.

The second package would document the bride and groom preparations getting ready and the ceremony followed by the family group photos. Or the instead of bride and groom preparations, I would photograph at the venue, Drinks and canapés, Wedding breakfast, the speeches and the first dance and the famous dad dancing.

Finally the third package you get the works, documenting the bride getting ready with the bridesmaids, groom and grooms men being boys right through the journey of the day, documenting the wedding day story. All images are fully edited and provided on a USB stick. Edited images are uploaded to a password protected gallery, where you can share, download or even buy prints from.

Wedding Photography Style

After the day I take about 2 to 4 weeks to edit my wedding photographs. All photographs are backed up on various drives and servers. I cull any photos that dont meet my standards, then i edit them personally one by one until i am happy with the results.

Everyone likes a different style of photograph, muted, instagram, deeper colours like red and dark green in the autumn and wintertime. In the summer i tend to find clients like a softer, warmer feel to their photographs. Clients that instruct me for their weddings, obviously love my work, so the way i edit photos is to their liking. If a client has a certain look they are going for, I am happy to shoot with that in mind.

I try and get everything correct in camera, as it makes my job easier when importing the photographs into Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

Preferring to capture the day with natural lighting if at all possible, but some flash is needed at certain times of the day, like first dance. I use a couple of flashes, one on a tripod, normally high up, then its triggered by a wireless trigger, then i have another hand held for some cool quirky dance floor shots.

STORYTELLING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN CORNWALL & DEVON

Wedding photography storytelling is what I love to do, capturing those candid moments, fleeting glances, smiles and laughter. Photographing in a documentary reportage style at a wedding is to me the best way, letting the photographs tell the whole wedding day story. Engagement and Pre-Wedding shoots available at your choice of location.

Little bit about me, I'm a 6 foot something bearded chap in my late 40's, with a love of surfing, currently living in Cornwall Gods country. My father was an avid photographer, so from a young age I always had a camera to hand.

Being wedding photographer combines my love of portraiture, street photography and landscapes, all into one, the field of wedding photography.

Shooting on the day as a second photographer or second camera on your special day will allow you to have memories from the whole day, not just the bride, but also the groom preparations for the big day, right through to the last dance and DAD DANCING...

Wedding Ceremony Photography

Second Wedding Photographer in Cornwall

I love Shooting weddings even as a second photographer, building my portfolio of different wedding couples and beautiful venues and stunning scenery.

A wedding photographer, often likes having a second photographer for the day as it means you can cover preparations of both the bide and groom. The second photographer will take direction from the lead photographer, by following his or her background brief. Prefering a non instusive style, the second photographer should be able to blend in to the wedding party, but still capturing  the wedding day story.
