Derbyshire Wedding Photographer

Hello, I’m Simon and I make images inspired by film, music and street photography.

I always feel excited to witness such a special day - and aim to make warm, scuzzy photos so you can relive it for generations to come.

I guess I'd call my style documentary or reportage - but I see it more as a way of celebrating life and capturing everything in the best light, rather than being influenced by other photographers.

It's definitely not elegant, classy or traditional - and if they're the qualities you're looking for then I'm probably not they guy for you!

For me it's all about capturing the connections between family and friends. The laughter and the nerves and the chaos. The feels.

Please have a flick through the site to get an idea of how I can capture your wedding in a relaxed, creative way.

I live in the city of Derby, which is surrounded by miles and miles of beautiful Peak District Derbyshire countryside as well as several characterful cities throughout the Midlands. Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, Birmingham, Leicestershire, Coventry and Warwick are in easy reach.

Documenting without directing

Weddings are a microcosm of stories and life and I want to capture that in all it's authentic glory.The anticipation of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready in the morning. The excitement of walking down the aisle and seeing each other for the first time. Tears during the speeches. Uncontrollable pageboys and flower girls. Dancing the night away.I keep things simple and focus on the story, emotions, light and composition. To make photos that make you feel like you're still there in the moment.

About my Style

UNIQUE

I don’t photograph every wedding the same way, because every wedding is unique. I believe in being present, prepared and observant and letting you be yourselves, and beautiful photos naturally follow.

BEAUTIFUL

Capturing the atmosphere, stories, characters and emotions of the wedding day in my own cinematic photography style. However lavish or intimate your celebration. The anticipation of the morning bridal preparations. The page boys and bridesmaids playing. The arrival of family and friends. The groom as the bride walks down the aisle. The laughter. The nerves. The joy. The love.

CANDID

Working in a documentary way – I capture events as they really happen. Instead of your day being a parade of family portraits and poses. Getting out of the way and letting you celebrate your love for one another.

ARTISAN

Every photograph is an individual piece of art – carefully composed to express the emotion of your wedding. I want you to look at your wedding photos in years to come and feel exactly as you did in that moment.
