Truly great photography is about letting your subject's personality shine through, it's capturing those magical split-second moments for all to see and for you to cherish forever. This is your special day and I am there to capture every last minute of it! Whether it's your wedding day, birthday, a christening or a family and pet shoot your photos will be natural, elegant and stylish. I am based out of Gloucestershire but will look at all locations.

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. Being married myself and having attended countless weddings over the years I have truly seen the good, the bad and ugly when it comes to wedding photographers. From 4 hours of posed group shots to bored photographers just going through the motions. Choosing the right photographer should be up there along with choosing the right location and dress!

No two weddings are the same, I am there to capture what makes your day special and unique. My style is very much to quietly document your wedding, getting those beautiful natural shots of you enjoying your day, children playing, guests laughing and getting drunk. We will of course have the family and friends group shots with a picturesque backdrop and have some quiet time hopefully around sunset to take some romantic shots of just the two of you.

Prices start from just £495 for a half day shoot (up to speeches) or £795 for a full day. With all full day bookings you will also receive a complementary basic video of the ceremony, speeches and first dance. For full details of packages please see Pricing. We will have a pre-wedding meeting to discuss what types of shots you would like, show you some that you may not have thought of and go through the timings of your day.

I've shot weddings at many beautiful locations including Thornbury Castle in South Gloucestershire, Rockhampton Cricket Club also South Gloucestershire, Peterstone Court Hotel in Brecon Beacons, Mercure Bristol North the Grange Hotel in Bristol, The Manor at Old Down Estate in Bristol, The Greenway Hotel in Gloucestershire. Other great venues in and around Gloucestershire which are certainly worth a look include: Stonehouse Court Hotel, Hallmark Hotel Gloucester, Hatton Court Hotel, Mercure Gloucester, Bowden Hall Hotel, Eastington Park, Mussel End Farm, Hatherley Manor Hotel, The Bear of Rodborough Hotel, Cheltenham Regency Hotel, Manor By The Lake, The Old Lodge, Queens Hotel Cheltenham, No 38 The Park, Green Dragon, The Kingscote Barn, The Matara Centre, Lower Lode Inn, Berkeley Castle, Parkfields Country House, Penyard House and many, many more.

Nobody like waiting so I aim to get your photos back to you in under 2 weeks so they can be shared on social media whilst the memories are still fresh.

Phil has always had the knack of capturing that perfect moment in a beautiful photo. It's lovely seeing him sharing his gift and how pleased his customer are when they get his photos.

Even though Emily was a little grizzly throughout, Phil was great with her. We felt completely at ease and we received some beautiful photos. We like them so much that we're delighted that Phil will be capturing Emily's christening in a few weeks time :-)
Thank you so much Phil! Love Craig, Sarah and baby Emily

Phil captured our special day perfectly and did such an amazing job! We will treasure the photos forever! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer that made the day even more relaxed(we barely knew he was there for most of it!).

I was so pleased with my photos from Phil, he perfectly captures those special moments throughout the day. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough, he really knows how to get the most out of his subjects and surrounds to create beautiful and emotive photos you will treasure forever.

A massive thank you to Phil for the beautiful newborn shoot he did for us a few weeks ago. He took such natural and honest photos which are just gorgeous! We absolutely love them! So much so we have used one of the images for our 'thank you' cards. We'll definitely be using him again!

We would like to thank Phil for doing our wedding photos. He went the extra mile to help with photographing the bridesmaid dresses to help me decide on colours. Our engagement shoot photos were wonderful and combined a good approach of following us on a nice walk and then making a few great suggestions for particular photos. On the day Phil blended into the background and was very flexible as a few key plans changed. We love the photos we have seen so far and are excited to see the rest of them!

Amazing photographer. If you do not go with Phil as your wedding photographer then you are massively missing out. A relaxed, talented photographer, a natural with the camera. Very natural photographs taken, he did not miss anything of our wedding day. Highly recommended

Philtographie Q&A

Philtographie Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Truly great photography is about letting your subject's personality shine through, it's capturing those magical split-second moments for all to see and for you to cherish forever. This is your special day and I am there to capture every last minute of it! Whether it's your wedding day, birthday, a christening or a family and pet shoot your photos will be natural, elegant and stylish.

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

Many pros seem to forget they are their to capture your day and give you what you want not what they want, with this in mind I would show you all the different types of shots we can do together and you can decide what you like, what you don't, what you wants lots of, etc.

What do you love most about your job?

I have always loved photography even from an early age, being able to capture a moment so that it can be remembered and shared forever. Later as i honed my skill i found new and innovative ways to capture those moments so they give you something different to everyone else.

What inspired you to start your own business?

What you have the skill, drive and talent why work for someone else?

Why should our clients choose you?

First and foremost its the photography. I take huge pride in my work so that every customer walks away over the moon with the end result. But then you get a lot of extras choosing Philtographie which is above and beyond, where possible you get your photos back within 2 weeks, you get a complementary basic videography included, weather/location permitting we can look at a use of a drone for 1 or 2 shots from the air totally free of charge and finally whilst Philtographie will retain all copyrights to the images unlike many pros i do not look to make more money after the event by selling expensive prints so you are free to share and print to your hearts content.
