Wedding photographer Derby, Derbyshire – Fine-art reportage



Hello, I’m Simon. I create honest and artistic wedding photographs –  inspired by music, movies and street photography – but most of all about the connections between us. I see photography as a celebration of life.

Choosing a photographer for your big day is no small thing. After the cake is eaten, the flowers have wilted and the dress is stored away. Your photos are a memento of intimacy,  friends and family, love and connection that will last forever. 

At the same time, you don’t want your day to be about your photographer, or standing on parade for hours on end. You want to enjoy your day. It flies by.

I’m a moment junkie. I love the little gestures and incidents that speak volumes about the story of your day. The groom nervously biting his lip. The fathers hand on his sons shoulder. Mum reaching for the tissues. The little things that go unnoticed.

I work in a manner that’s often referred to as documentary, reportage, or photojournalistic. I keep in the background unobtrusively capturing the fleeting moments-between-moments. You should barely notice I’m there.

I want you to be able to put yourself in the picture and remember how it felt – five, ten, fifty years down the line. Because how you felt on your wedding day is the one thing you should never forget.

I live in Derby which is the perfect location to cover wedding venues in Derbyshire, The Peak District and Nottingham. I’ve covered weddings at Calke Abbey, Foremark Cottages,  Blackbrook House, The Carriage Hall, Derby Cathedral, Morley Hayes, Norwood Park, Swancar Farm, Ringwood Hall, Callow Hall, Colwick Hall, Donnington Park Farmhouse, The Whitworth Center – to name a few. Pop over to the blog to see what I’ve been up to recently.
