A great photograph is both a powerful way to keep your most special memories alive through the decades and a beautiful work of art.

A professional photographer with over 17 years of experience, I am absolutely passionate about the work I do. I consider every job to be a privilege, and never tire of looking at the world through my lens, finding that magical, perfect shot that fully evokes the mood of a single, fleeting moment, preserving it forever.

I specialise in shooting portraits, boudoir and weddings, approaching every commission with enthusiasm, curiosity and creativity. One of the great joys of the photographer’s life is the chance to be reminded over and over again how every person has their own unique beauty, and I consider it my job to capture that on film.

For an observer of human life, there is no better occasion than a wedding, when the atmosphere is one of excitement, joy and celebration and everybody is looking and feeling their best. I find people and relationships endlessly fascinating and love creating eye-catching, intimate images that show authentic interactions and natural emotion; the stolen glances, the spontaneous laughter and the choked-back tears. In 2017 alone, I had the privilege of shooting 57 spectacular weddings around the UK.

I have the technical skills and artistic flair to create stunning images that you will love, whether you are looking for a show-stopping portraits you will be proud to display on your walls or a breath-taking wedding album that tells the full story of your special day. Please get in touch to discuss your needs and how I can help preserve memories for you.

Working with Elwood Photography was absolutely fabulous! He was prompt in replies, easy to work with on the day, took amazing photos and sent them within 2 days of our event! I’d definitely hire him again and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great photography that’s both professional and friendly!

Booked Elwood Photography for my wedding in September 2018. Tim was great to work with, had so many compliments from the guests about Tim, really friendly and loved the photos from the big day! Good mixture of formal portraits but also natural shots of the guests too.

Tim photographed our small wedding in August last year and did such a great job. We're far from naturals when it comes to being photographed, but Tim was so relaxed and lovely that it put everyone at ease. He got so many beautiful photographs; we really were amazed when we received them. Very glad we found Tim and would recommend to anyone.

We hired Tim Elwood Photography for our Engagement Party and we found Tim so friendly and easy to work with that we didn't hesitate in hiring him for our Wedding a year later!
Tim took the time to find out what photos we had wanted and he delivered some fantastic photos which were exactly what we wanted.
Tim is a friendly guy and many of our guests commented on how nice Tim is, which helped us and our guests relax and have fun with our photos.
We would recommend Elwood Photography to anyone who is looking for great photos captured by a relaxed and friendly photographer.

Right from the offset Tim was very approachable and friendly. He was experienced and keen to work with us to ascertain our requirements to ensure these are planned fully prior to our special day . Tim exceeded our expectations on our wedding day. Although generally neither of us enjoy having our photograph taken. Tim put us at ease and took a variance of photos utilising the features both inside and outside the venures. Those natural photos captured some beautiful moments of our day which we will treasure forever. Tim was very passionate and aimed to please, nothing was too much to ask. I would definitely recommend Tim as he provides an excellent service, of the highest quality at a competitive price. We are so honoured to have met such a nice guy and to top it off was excellent with children.

I had a great shoot today with Tim. I found him professional, courteous and easy to get along with and I felt comfortable throughout the shoot. He helped me with posing to good effect and was great with feedback. From what I could see from the back of the camera we got some really great, creative and dramatic shots. The studio space was also very attractive and a pleasure to work in. Highly recommended.

This was my second shoot with Elwood Photography and yet again Tim could not have done more. Tim is amazing, the children and young adults felt comfortable and at ease. Tim captured our dance positions with ease and is willing to keep shooting until you get the picture you want. I would recommend Tim for dancers and modelling he is patient and very kind, great with all ages. We will be booking another shoot soon. I am a dance teacher and one of my students had a portfolio done, she is very happy with the images and learned form the experience. All the children involved had a great time and said they had "the best day" . Great confidence boost and a lovely record of their dance ability. Tim is passionate and the images are truly important to him. We love him and cannot thank him enough.

An absolute pleasure having Tim at our Corporate Event - he was everything we were looking for. Very easy to work with, understood the brief, and asked the right questions to make the most of our event. He worked tirelessly throughout the time we had him there, and just got on with the job. The results of his work are everything we had hoped for and more. With it being an evening event the lighting he had to work with was poor, but the results are fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Thanks again Tim - we'll be sure to book you for our next Corporate event.

I recently used Tim's services at a cricket camp my company was running and, from the start, Tim was friendly, professional and quick to get back to my messages. I have had two separate colleagues comment on how friendly and relaxed Tim was to work with, staying over his booked time to ensure he had what he needed.

The pictures were edited and sent very quickly to a high standard, with a mix of colour and black and white, and are now on our social media pages and will be used as examples of the camps in the future.

Would highly recommend Tim for any photography services needed and would definitely use again.

Elwood Photography was absolutely fantastic. Working with Tim was a great experience and his photos are brilliant. We asked for photos to be taken at a summer ball for the Sutton Bonington Campus, part of the University of Nottingham, and they captured the event beautifully. Tim is very skilled and greeted all of our guests asking for photos with a very warm greeting. Stunning snaps with a smile should be the slogan of Elwood Photography, we look forward to our paths crossing again soon!
