HI I’M SIMON, A BOURNEMOUTH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
A wedding photographer based in beautiful Bournemouth. I cover weddings in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. My images are all about telling stories and capturing real emotions with a style that is creative, fun and natural. I won’t interfere with the flow of the day, I just let things happen. Nothing makes me happier than creating images that I know you will love for many years to come.
I describe my style as documentary wedding photography, taking a very much a hands off approach. My goal is to create a set of pictures that will stand the test of time and become a family heirloom and a testimony to the story of your wedding day.
The terms documentary wedding photography, or photojournalistic wedding photography are phrases that have become really popular in the last few years within the wedding industry as photographers try to move away from a more traditional approach to wedding photography.
I am very much led by the bride and grooms characters, how they interact with each other. A wedding provides a wealth of material for the documentary photographer. I capture images of genuine reactions and emotions across relationships of family and friends, telling the story as it unfolds and limit my direction to group shots when asked for and aim to keep couple shots as informal and fun as possible. A bit of time together where I’ll help you relax, laugh and enjoy the short time away from the rest of the wedding.
If you are like me and hate having your photo taken (I know which side of the camera i’d sooner be on) I truly empathise. It’s my job to put you at your ease so that you can both be yourselves and I can capture photos of you and your friends having the time of your lives on what will undoubtedly be one of your most important days together.
