DerbySHIRE Wedding Photographer




It doesn’t matter if you’re getting married in a grand stately home, a cinema or your own kitchen - I believe everyone can have beautiful natural wedding photos. It just needs the right person behind the camera.

Hello, I'm Simon a reportage / documentary wedding photographer based in Derby and I think weddings rock. They're just stories on top of stories on top of stories. So many beautiful pictures to take of people deeply in love and the family histories around them.


My job is trying to nail that exact moment where everything falls together perfectly. Moments and emotions. Selected and curated and presented in the most beautiful way possible.

I don't want to be making cheesy, awkward photos or getting you and your guests to stand round for hours on parade. The best photos happen by just being in the moment and letting things happen.


What else do you need to know? Let's go for a coffee. I'd love to hear about your plans and what's important to you on your big day.


(That's from my favourite client review)


"Wonderful and natural images that put a smile on anyone's face"- Samantha & Tom


“We absolutely love our photos. Simon has a true talent for capturing natural, subtle moments, with beautiful light, colour and context.“ - Kate & Jack


“You have captured genuine moments of emotion, anticipation and happiness” - Sarah & Brian


“Simon's love for capturing the day not just through photographing the Bride and Groom but through capturing the emotions and personalities of all the guests really appealed to us. When looking through the photos it is as though we are back reliving our big day.” -Lizzie & Paul


“He doesn't just take photos he records every beautiful moment in the most beautiful light”- Lucy & Mark


“Our photos are beautiful. … My mum cried looking at them, I cried, Grandma probably will cry!’ - Michaela & Stuart


"Given our budget, we were reluctant to spend on a photographer, but we also knew we would regret it if we didn't have a good set of photos. We wanted natural photos, not posed stiff ones, and Simon's portfolio looked beautifully quirky. I can't tell you how glad we are that we chose him. He was worth every penny and more...Not only has he captured every moment, he's captured every feeling. Every time I look at our photos I smile. They are perfect"- Jen & Christopher
