When it comes to weddings I love the journalistic style, blending in with the wedding couple, family and guests. Being unobtrusive and let the day unfold naturally whilst making sure I capture the signature moments. I strive to tell the complete story of a very special day from pre-wedding preparations to the festivities in the evening.

Having come here from The Netherlands I find myself surrounded by the most beautiful scenery and locations so as far as wedding portraits are concerned the inspiration is endless. For family shoots this beautiful landscape is my favourite backdrop. I am not a studio photographer, for family and pre-wedding shoots I like to go out to your favourite spot and photograph you in a location where you are totally at ease.

I invite you to take a look at my work at www.jeffpardoen.com, my blog: http://jeffpardoenphotography.blogspot.co.uk/ or my Facebook page www.facebook.com/jeffpardoenphotography. I have come from a graphic design/photography background and have done that combination for 15 years in The Netherlands. One of our studios biggest clients was the regional newspaper that was based in the same building. I did a lot of photography for the newspaper, that is where my interest for documentary photography comes from. I like to apply the same shooting style to my wedding photography.

The formal portraits understandably involve some degree of posing but for the most part I would like you to feel completely free during your special day without you being conscious of me being ‘in your face’ constantly.

It was a pleasure to work with Jeff, especially as we had put him under a lot of pressure to work on a type of wedding event that was not the usual standard wedding type. Also working with difficult lighting conditions inside the venue. He delivered excellent results for us and we would be happy to recommend his services to anybody. In addition to his professional services he is a really nice guy. Top marks for Jeff! Cheers

The pictures were beyond our expectations and gave the exact impression from this special day. Thank you Jeff!

Wow! Just wow! Jeff is an absolutely fantastic photographer who shot our wedding on 5th August 2017. After our pre meeting shoot he knew exactly what we were after from our big day and took some incredible shots. Thank you Jeff for all the hard work you put in. Would definitely recommend Jeff for any event requiring some excellent snaps!

First of all my Daughter and I were asked to take part in my Brother in Laws pre - wedding shoot and wedding. Both of which were done by Jeff. The pre wedding photographs are amazing . As I'm sure the wedding ones will be too. Jeff was fantastic at both and every one felt at ease. Because of all of the above I booked Jeff for a photo shoot for my daughter . Again the photo's are amazing some staged , some natural and with a variety of effects. My daughter felt realy at ease and comfortable during the shoot. It was money well spent. I would definitely recommend Jeff Pardoen Photography . I have also booked another shoot for my daughter for next year ????

Jeff Pardoen visualized our wedding day so perfectly! Jeff has the gift to make you feel comfortable while shooting pictures and to give such a outstanding view of this special day.

Jeff was our wedding photographer. His work was amazing and he really captured the little details and emotions from the day. It is lovely to relive the day through his work and he will never forget it. He is very pleasant and we had our photos within a week.

Amazing! I originally wasn't going to have a photographer but I was introduced to Jeff through a mutual friend and I am so glad I changed my mind. We didn't want overly posed photo's and Jeff did exactly as we asked, even with all the stress on the morning he simply blended in and we all forgot he was there yet the photo's of that morning are fantastic. The more I look at all the photo's the more I fall in love with them. Thank you Jeff x

My husband and I picked Lawrence (Jeff) to do the photography for our wedding on the 8th December and we couldn't have chose a better photographer. It was clear from the onset that photography is not just a profession for him but a passion. He has a remarkably keen eye for photo opportunities and we are so pleased with the pictures that we have received. He worked above and beyond what we ever would have expected and half the time we where completely unaware that he was there taking snaps, which was amazing when we looked through the photos as he caught glimpses of the wedding that had gone by us like a whirlwind on the day. He is very reasonably priced for what you get and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Jeff for giving us photos that we will treasure throughout our married life together. We are so grateful to you.

We had Jeff photograph our wedding last month and have already seen the final images, they are fantastic we are very happy with them! Jeff came to the venue on the morning and got some great shots of me and the bridesmaids getting ready and stayed until after the 1st dance � A lot of pictures we didn't even know where being taken were taken and look very natural, it's been nice to look through and see what was happening during the day as your to busy taking it all in but we feel Jeff captured it all
Thank you from mr & Mrs Gowland

Thank you so much for how amazing my snaps are!! you caught everything how I imagined it and more!
Our pre photoshoot was fantastic—quirky and different just like myself—where we also discussed wants for the wedding photos. Jeff was so excited as it was a tipi wedding with lots of games, and activities to do!!
What a lovely guy, easy to talk to happy to snap exactly what’s wanted. I honestly didn’t know he was there when getting ready on the morning! Jeff stayed all day snapping what was wanted and also snapping them hidden gem photos!
The speed he got the photos edited and sent to me was also perfect only had to wait a week before I had them all! Came with s lovely memory stick to keep.
I will definitely use Jeff in the future and will always be thankful for getting my photos so perfect !!!!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Jeffrey. We were quite keen to meet someone who we felt at ease with to capture our special day. From the first meeting at a pre wedding photo shoot Jeffrey exceeding our expectations, both our outdoor photo shoot and wedding photos tell a story of us perfectly and having Jeffrey as part of our day felt so natural, he was accommodating to us and all our guests and his manner made everyone confortable as he wandered round taking pictures of all aspects of the day. We will forever be grateful for the wonderful memories Jeffrey captured for us. Thankyou, we can't recommend you enough. Laura & Darrel

I work alongside Jeff, he has often took shots of our training capturing the moment as it happens, be it an action moving shot or a portrait. Jeff is a great guy who goes above and beyond the call of duty. I would highly recommend him and his work.

We can’t thank you enough for how amazing our pics are. You’ve done a fantastic job. Been there all day and night you’ve captured every special moment of our day. You blended right in throughout the day and were great with all the guests. Thanks again Jeff, Mr & Mrs Simpson.

Jeff Pardoen Photography  Q&A

Company Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Stay sharp, keep a good look out for special moments unfolding and being able to adequately post-process the photograph to enhance the atmosphere.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

What do you have in mind regarding the pictures and how can I help you realise that vision?

What do you love most about your job?

Working with all different kinds of people. The variety of the venues and not to forget, getting to know the people via informal pre-wedding shoots which is also great. Weddings are the most fun, you have to be absolutely in the zone and perform on the top of your abilities.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to lift my photography to a new level. It always was second place to my work as a Graphic Designer but I wanted to focus all my attention to Photography and I haven't regretted it for a moment!

Why should our clients choose you?

I know what I am doing and I do it in a modest way. Wedding photography is about the couple and their wishes and not about the photographer. I like to stay in the background and capture moments preferably without people realising I am around. I am polite and know my place during a wedding and that is capturing moments without being in people's faces constantly.
