Storytelling Wedding Day Photography...

How will you remember your wedding day? I've been shooting weddings for over ten years and have developed a successful storytelling style of coverage that mixes candid spontaneous moments with creative, natural looking formal imagery. The collection of images that I create for you will tell the story of your wedding day, allowing you to look back and re-live it all over again...

Here's just one example of typical feedback from a delighted couple:

"Hi Neal, Just wanted to thank you for taking our beautiful photos at our wedding, we had such an amazing day and you managed to capture the atmosphere perfectly. So many of our guests commented on what a lovely man you are. Your warm, friendly nature really made us all feel so much at ease and comfortable in front of the camera, which shows in the stunning photos, we all looked so natural and relaxed. You are a real credit to your profession and we will most certainly be recommending you to everyone, just can't thank you enough. Kaye and Alan, June 2014".

Your Location Portraits... Family Event Photography...
I specialise in location based portraiture for Children, individuals, couples or families. Any Location. Any time of year.
If desired, the sessions can start at your home and move onto another location, and I will capture a series of natural, spontaneous moments mixed with formal imagery that you will treasure forever.

" Dear Neal Thank you so much for taking the photgraphs of Ava's Christening. They are absolutely amazing. You have such a fantastic talent for capturing the atmosphere of an occasion. The photos are so natural and will be treasured for ever. Kind regards Julie T."

Storytelling Wedding Photography: Wedding Day Olympics!



A Country Marquee Wedding, Suffolk.

As a storytelling wedding photographer, it's really quite inspiring when couples plan their wedding day a little differently to the norm. It means that I'm likely to see something different, and of course capture it all for the couple.

That's exactly the case for this wedding day. After a beautiful Church service, everyone made their way to this meadow for the celebrations, where the theme for the afternoon was a family "wedding day olympics!".

Things didn't go quite to plan. It rained. A lot. And then it rained some more. Plans needed to change; some of the games were held inside the marquee, some held in the rain, and some left in the hope that the rain stopped. And it did! Final game of the day; Blind Brides Bluff! Teams, blindfolded, made their way along a course putting on items of costume along the way. First team with their nominated bride fully dressed was the winner! And here we see the winning team!

Technically this was a little challenging... it's June but it's now 822pm, and quite dull. It's shot with natural light at 9000iso, so the colours are muted but all that matters is that the moment was captured right there.

It's one of my most challenging, but enjoyable weddings I've ever had the pleasure of covering.
