Made with Authenticity, Creativity and Passion

Hello!

Alternative Reportage Wedding Photography

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

I feel honoured for me and my camera to witness such a special day - and to be able to take photos that will help you relive your's for years to come.

Derby and the Midlands Wedding Photography

I live in 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.

I love an adventure - so please drop me a line if your celebrations are happening further afield.

Documenting the biggest party of your life

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.

Style & Ethos

UNIQUE

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

BEAUTIFUL

Capturing the atmosphere, stories, characters and emotions of the day in my own cinematic style. However lavish or intimate your celebration. The anticipation in the morning. The page boys and bridesmaids playing. The arrival of family and friends. 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 photo is an individual piece of art – carefully composed to express emotion within the camera. I want you to look at your photos in years to come and feel exactly as you did in that moment.
