Hi, I'm Ashley

Relaxed, reportage wedding photography for rockstar couples.

Welcome to the World of Monkeymole Photography, where we recruit the gigglers, the fairytale planners, the incurable romantics, and those wanting a rockstar-worthy celebration of love.

We’re not what you’d call your typical wedding photographer; we get the groomsmen started early on the Dutch courage, lace the bridesmaids with Prosecco & Haribo, flatter the in-laws, and party with you on the dancefloor (albeit with some seriously questionable dance moves).

We base our coverage of your day on our core beliefs; a wedding shouldn’t be a glorified photoshoot, and couples aren’t expected to be experienced models in front of the camera. Unatural posing and forced smiles are unceremoniously chucked out the window – instead focussing our efforts in documenting the story of day as it happens, and capturing those brilliantly natural moments of you pair being “you”.

By taking a “guided reportage” type approach to coverage, even the formal photographs can be approached with a sense of humour & fun. Whilst many associate this part of the day with being like a game of stand up Twister (put your left foot here, right hand there), we take it as an opportunity to get a ‘lil mischievous and spark up a bit of the passion that led you to getting hitched up – just no heavy petting if there’s kids about!

Our standard “Sunrise ’til Sambuca” coverage ensures you’ve got everything needed to tell the story of your day – I’m your chief troublemaker all the way from morning preparations until the drinks start flowing after the first dance, and all the important bits inbetween. There are a handful of ways in which the package can be tailored to you, and I’ve got some equally fantastic vendors I’m happy to bring along for the ride.

We put a huge amount of importance on getting to know you both all the way from initial enquiry, right through to the run up to the day. Your photographer is with you for longer than anyone else on the day, and it’s cruical they’ve got a personality that works for you.

No stone is left unturned in the prep; everything from the group photographs & timings, through to those seemingly small details that have huge meaning to you – we cover it all beforehand, so the day itself is as relaxed as possible.

If you’re a fan of my work and think I sound like a decent chap, I’d love to get to know you both, and listen to your plans for the day.

How would you describe your style?

"Low posing, high fun" is the best way to describe my style. Unnatural & awkward posing goes completely out the window, and instead we focus on capturing the true moments of you having the most incredible day. Most of the day you won't even know your photograph is being taken - when a bit of guidance is needed, you'll be having an absolute blast without ever feel like you're having to endure a photoshoot.

What do you love about weddings?

The vibe! Nothing comes close to the vibe from a wedding day - all of that love simmering over throughout the day, ready to burst into Jagermeister fulled celebrations when the lights go down. There is simply no better way of paying the mortgage than capturing these days.

Your Travel policy?

For my standard full day package, I cover The Midlands, Yorkshire, and Lincolnshire. I'm more than happy to travel as far as you're willing to send me!

A pleasure

Well what can I say? Not only was Ashley a pleasure to have around on our wedding day but the photos he took are incredible and captured our day perfectly. I could not be happier with the end result and we would happily recommend Monkeymole to anyone. Thank you Ashley for making our day so special and giving us amazing photos to remember our day with for years to come.

Ashley was fantastic from the first time we spoke to him, we are not the best with photos and we didn’t want a photo shoot. Ashley put us at ease from the off and wow he didn’t disappoint. When we received our photos we were blown away! The moments he captured were incredible, and so natural. Thank you for making our day so special and creating our beautiful photos that we can cherish forever.

A real life superhero

Ashley was part of our wider photographer & videography team, and I just want to share my thanks for your efforts and work on the day. He was an absolute gent to have with us during the day, keeping us all calm (and well fed!!), and capturing some really special moments for us. We found out after the wedding there were a few elements of the day that didn’t quite go as planned - Ashley is spoken about with superhero status amongst our guests, thanks to rolling up the sleeves to ensure the day went on without a hitch. Thank you for the wonderful photos, and being such an integral part of our day being perfect.

Thank you for our gorgeous pictures and making us feel so relaxed

Great photographer, love the pictures, and an all round top chap. Thanks for all the work you put in for our wedding, and thank you for the gorgeous pictures.

We were blown away when we first got our photos

Picking a photographer was something me and the husband to be were really dreading - we really don’t like having our picture taken and spending the day posing is our idea of a nightmare. As soon as we had a chat with Ash, we knew we had found our photographer straight away. He was brilliant in helping with the preparations, and mega organised with getting all of the details from us. On the day he was absolutely faultless, got on well with the guests, kept us both nice and relaxed, and made sure the photography parts of the day were really fun. We were blown away when we first got our pictures - they were so much better than we could have ever imagined, and captured some of the most gorgeous pictures of us without us even knowing. A brilliant photographer that we’d hire again in a heartbeat.
