Langdon Hills, EssexElite Pro (21 Reviews)
It's the little hidden moments I see and the expressions I capture to tell a story that make me a photographer. The cameras help along with the technical training and over 17 years of experience in family portraiture and wedding photography
I'm a little bit more than 'just a photographer'. I'm that calm one in the room when the place is on meltdown, stitching up the best man’s trousers, arranging a bridesmaid’s bouquet out of thin air and untangling a father of the bride from the ribbons of the wedding car. Not to mention hiking the extra mile up the hill or laying down in mud to get 'that shot' if you've heard the stories possibly the photographer was me!
I’ll be there personally every step of the way, through the consultation and booking, answering any questions night or day, behind the camera (dancing if needed) and presenting to you your photos, storybook albums, slideshow and prints. With over 17 years experience that includes celebrities, high-end studios and sailing the seven seas, as a specialist full-time wedding photographer I’m also available for every type of social photography, studio and location family and baby portraiture and model portfolios. I’ve got the skeleton key to help you relax and put you at ease whilst capturing the natural expressions of the day, whilst simultaneously entertaining the little ones.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?
There's two secret approaches I'll take during a wedding:-
1. The waiting game - Light is a photographers dream and nightmare and waiting for that moment as the sun bends round the corner giving the perfect light as the subject form the perfect composition. But the secret for this approach is harnessing my intuition understating where to be, what setting to dial and click... it's the perfect natural moment... it's the why I'm a photographer.
2. The Hunt - A wedding is filled with hundreds of spontaneously emotions and moments, the hunt is the photos I'll take when the couple after the wedding say 'We didn't even know you we're there' and 'I don't remember that happening'. Its an art in its self to be able to camouflage into a crowd whilst carrying huge cameras, lens and equipment.
What do you love most about your job?
There's nothing quite like the buzz of a wedding, and being there in the front row to document it all, but I love most actually comes after the wedding. I love seeing the reaction of my couples when I play back their photos to them for the first time, seeing their minds re-live there wedding day via my photos.
What inspired you to start your own business?
My son. I was working as the photographer/studio manager for a large Essex studio when I realised my son was just over 6months old and I had hardly seen him. Having my own business lets me be there for my family and be there personally for my clients and couples every step of the way.
Why should our clients choose you?
I tend to find that most couples who choose me to photograph their weddings are looking for someone to spend half the time blending into their wedding and capturing their day naturally, as it happens, without interfering. And the other half organising and helping the day flow while subtlety posing groups. All of the above come with no forced smiles.
