Hi, I'm Tony

Unobtrusive Wedding Photojournalism

Weddings were happening long before photographers were around to capture them, yet they didn’t want for emotion, poignancy or excitement. I always try to remember that – everyone hates a wedding photographer who makes themselves the centre of attention! I’m not interested in fabricating ‘drama’ – that’s available on demand – instead it’s my job to frame and expose it in the most compelling manner possible.

I’m a very hands-off photographer, I like to let things flow. I prefer to see things in their organic, undirected state because I believe that’s where the truth and emotion lives.

I step outside this strictly documentary role only twice, once for a small set of Formal Group Photographs, and again for what I call the ‘Creative Session’. The purpose of the creative session is to create some gorgeous natural portraits of the Bride & Groom, free from the limitations of a documentary approach. While I don’t spend ages posing you or lighting the environment, this period of time does allow us to step away, make the best of your chosen Wedding venue, and spend some time together with just portraiture in mind. I always strive for ‘light-direction’ over ‘heavily posed’ and above all focus on keeping things fun and personal.

While the Creative Session and Formal Groups are fantastic, the centre of my work is undoubtedly photojournalistic. It’s about narrative and telling the individual story of your day. I’m interested in creating a body of work that, through pictures alone, reflects the unique essence of each individual wedding.

How would you describe your style?

My work is rooted in photojournalism. I want to tell a story through pictures and so alongside the merits of each image, I'm also always thinking about the narrative that builds up in a sequence of photographs.

I work alone for the discretion it affords - it's far easier photographing powerful, emotion-filled moments without the baggage of an assistant and/or second photographer. I'm also a huge proponent of black and white as this strips away much of the superfluous and helps us focus on faces, emotion and the meaningful content in each image. Colour undoubtedly has it's place and there are times when an image simply deserves to be in colour, but I find my clients often swoon most over really soulful black and white photographs.

What do you love about weddings?

Weddings are just a complete blast, no other event feels like a wedding. They are one of life's most significant and consequential moments and the bubbling soup of emotions that comes with the territory makes them a joy to photograph. I find that weddings bring out the very best in people and, alongside the innate pleasure of sharing in that, it's an absolute privilege to be entrusted with capturing such a special and important day.

One of the best parts of our day!

Choosing Tony as our wedding photographer was one of the easiest and best decisions we made surrounding the entire event. Right from our first zoom meeting, Tony was not only organised and efficient regarding his role on the day but actually provided so many helpful insights into how to arrange a successful wedding and reception based on his vast experience! He was so personable and friendly and didn't rush us at all to make any decisions until we'd got out heads around the running of the day. He kept in touch in the run up to the big day and came along to our rehearsal to make sure he was familiar with the church and how to get the perfect shot!

On the day itself, Tony was prompt and organised. He captured all the lovely candid moments as our friends and families got ready for the day without intruding, and fit right in with all the chaos! He successfully herded our groups together at the right moments and managed to get a whole range of portraits of my husband and I without us feeling that we had been pulled away from the festivities at all. We have had so many guests comment to us since the wedding how personable and friendly our photographer was, and how impressed they were throughout the day.

The results speak for themselves also. The photos we received were absolutely fantastic, a wonderful mix of candid and portraits. He managed to get two unphotogenic people to look so at ease and picture perfect in every shot! We have only just got around to ordering our formal album and it was so amazing to look through all our photos again and remember the day through Tony's lens. We really cannot recommend Tony enough.

The best of the best!

Book Tony as your photographer you will absolutely not regret it.

We clicked with Tony straight away and he just made us feel like us (key for those portraits which we were nervous about), he just felt like one of our friends so we knew it would work well.

We have just done our album through him and he has captured our day so so brilliantly I can't begin to describe it. He was everywhere but on the day I could not have told you where he was - ever!!

Our photos capture what happened on our perfect day so so well and he is such an artist the photos are honestly incredible.

I could not recommend Tony more, he is professional, fun, one of your friends but totally invisible, nowhere to be seen but capturing everything. Staying until the end of the night as standard results in some brilliant photos of the party that otherwise you just would never have!

Thank you Tony!

Perfect Photographer

Not only are Tony’s photos beautiful, but he was also a pleasure to have at our wedding.

Chris and I were determined that we didn’t want to notice that we had a photographer at our wedding, because for us the day was about being around family and friends. Of course, we still wanted pictures and we wanted all the best moments captured, but we just wanted to hang out and be ourselves. Tony was very on board with this approach from the moment we got in touch, and the result was truly fantastic photos. Tony managed to capture all sorts of little moments through the day, including some gorgeous shots of me and Chris without us having to disappear for couples photos (something we didn’t want to do as neither of us likes posing!), some tender shots of my dad and sister as she helped finalise his speech, some silly moments of people fetching balls from the water, and so many more.

Beyond getting gorgeous photos, Tony was also just really friendly and became part of the wedding. I barely noticed he had a camera in the morning whilst I was getting ready, even though he’s there taking up close photos. Through the day and the party, he just slotted right in, chatting to people, getting to know the party, and capturing the real vibe of the wedding.

I’d highly recommend Tony to anyone!

We could not have picked a better photographer!

We are SO glad that we picked Tony to be the photographer at our wedding. He captured the day perfectly and we could not be happier with the photos - they reflect the emotion and excitement from the day and he struck the perfect balance between capturing the key moments but also the detail which you tend to miss on the day itself. Each time we look at them we spot something new - they are just incredible.

On the day he was awesome and we felt completely at ease with him snapping away. Numerous guests commented on how brilliant he was - easy going, fun, but professional in the sense he was always on it, making sure he captured everything. He was also very generous with his time - we caught up with him for a couple of hours before the day and then he was there from bridal preparations to the last dance of the evening which was near midnight! We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Tony - thank you, thank you, thank you!

Your search is over for the perfect wedding photographer!!

We met Tony at a wedding fair and we knew straight away that he was exactly the type of photographer that we were looking for. My husband Max is also very into photography so we knew finding a photographer for us was going to be tough but as soon as we saw Tony's work we were blown away. Tony hadn't been to our venue before so we arranged to meet him there and he spent a lot of time with us talking through what we wanted. What was great was that after we left he stayed at the venue exploring the area and getting to know the best places to take photographs. It showed that he really did care about getting the right photos for us and was equally as excited as we were by the venue. On the day Tony went beyond our expectations and I said to Max afterwards how it felt like I had an older brother looking out for me on the day. It felt so natural to have Tony in the room with us making conversation that most of the time we forgot he was there to take pictures. He went above and beyond his role, moving things around the room to ensure that we got the best pictures. At the actual wedding I didn't really realise that he was there taking pictures as he seemed to blend in with the rest of our guests which was fantastic as we got lots of really natural shots showing what people were up to on the day. There are some absolutely gorgeous shots of all of our family which really capture the essence of their personalities and I know we wouldn't have managed to get these photographs if we had other wedding photographers. During the couples photoshoot Tony was really sweet and helped to carry my dress along as some of the areas were a bit muddy. We were really excited to see all of the photographs from Tony when they came through and the hardest bit has been working out which ones should go in the album as they're all so good! So many of the guests have also commented on what a fantastic photographer Tony is and how he's a genuine nice guy. I would agree 100% and would say you couldn't ask for a better person to be your wedding photographer.
