DerbySHIRE Wedding Photographer

Serving Derby, Nottingham, The Midlands and Beyond

Wedding Photography WITH SOUL.


Don't 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


So as well as weddings and stories and people and characters., I get excited by good light (it's a biggie) and composition and colours and just trying to nail that exact moment where everything falls together perfectly. In fact, if I were to try and pin it down, I'd say that's what my speciality is.

(And being invisible. At a bulky 6ft 2, somehow I'm good at disappearing into the background.)


Outside weddings I get excited by festivals and cinema and street photography and music.

I live in Derby with my young family. I always think I'll get round to making an "about me" page and doing my taxes, but it's only under threat of being sent to prison or large fines that ever really makes that happen.


What else do you need to know? Let's go for a coffee and chat about your wedding plans.

(Or browse round a bit more - I think you'll be able to tell where my passions lie best by having a look round at some photography)

“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
