I, JONNY, TAKE THEE.. PHOTOS

GETTING HITCHED? HI FIVES ALL ROUND!

My guess is, in your search for a wedding photographer, you’re looking for someone special. If you want a documentary style snapper to capture all the chaos and good times, who’s honest and fuss-free, then welcome to my humble little corner of the internet.

Wanna come on in?

Take off your shoes, the carpet’s new.

 

I AM A DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE..

LIVING IN THE HEART OF THE EVEN MORE GLORIOUS COTSWOLDS..

I travel all over the UK (and beyond) capturing wedding celebrations in my light-hearted, photojournalistic way.

You may have twigged that us wedding photographers like to toss around terms like “documentary”, “photojournalism” and “reportage” a fair bit.  I wouldn’t be at all surprised if, on reading these temptingly cool words, you’ve clicked through to the occasional gallery only to be greeted with a riot of staged and posed images that make your toes curl. A veritable orgy of “fun jumping ones” or nervy-looking brides being held unsteadily aloft by gurning groomsmen. Look, that’s fine. I’m not here to judge. To each their own. Who am I to say that one style of photography is superior to another? But true docu-style photojournalism it isn’t.

WITHOUT SOUNDING LIKE A RAGING CLICHÉ, LET’S KEEP IT REAL FOLKS.

What is “photojournalism” exactly? If you’re not a photographer by trade, you might not know the answer to this one. You’re forgiven. In a nutshell, it’s about naturalism (not “naturist”…that’s summin’ quite different and the photos cost a lot more). It’s about uncontrived, relaxed yet energetic photography that reflects the true happenings of the day. It means that I won’t make you pose and it’s highly unlikely I’ll stage any of the photos: I’ll just snap away at the action as it happens, keeping my eyes peeled for particularly funny, heart-warming, surreal and beautiful moments.

STILL SEARCHING FOR 'THE ONE'?

No, I don’t mean The One as in a life partner. Presumably you’ve found one of those already! Nope, I’m talking about The Photographer Of Your Dreams. How do you find the one for you? The one who’ll “get” you? The one you just simply HAVE to have on your wedding day?

Well, clicking through to this website is a crackin’ start.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF WE’RE COMPATIBLE?

I’ll tell you how in three simple steps:

1. Have a good old gander around my website: Gorge on my PORTFOLIO. Can you imagine yourself in those pictures? If you like what you see, we’re half-way there.

2. CHECK THE PRICING: No beating around the bush, you can get instant access to my >>PRICING BROCHURE<<. What I will say here is that photos need investing in. In years to come when your grandchildren want to see pictures of your wedding day, you want to be able to show them something special. You know that old saying, “You pays your money, you takes your choice”? That is SO true when it comes to wedding photography.

3. CHECK MY AVAILABILITY: The earlier the better, TBH. I book up fast each year and I can only physically take on so many bookings before I collapse exhausted in a gibbering heap. Around 30 weddings is my limit. So if you’ve got your date, GET IN TOUCH!

THEN WHAT HAPPENS?

I’ll get back to you within 24hrs and if I’m available on your date we can arrange a free consultation on the phone or via video (just to check I’m as lovely as you thought I’d be). Then we’ll confirm your booking and reserve your date with a small deposit (and I’ll ask you to sign a contract).

About a month before your big day, we’ll have another chat to talk through the who-what-where-when and whys. I really delve into the nuts and bolts of your day to make sure we totally nail it.

After the best day of your life is done I’ll take just a little while to edit your pictures (I usually take 4 weeks). If you’re off on honeymoon I might share a few teasers on socials. Then…TA-DA! I send you your gallery of amazing wedding photos and you tell me how great I am.

If you fancy a wedding album, I can make you a gorgeous one. I only use the finest album-makers in the world and I personally design each one. Albums truly are a beautiful heirloom that you’ll love forever and a day.
