About

Over the years I have seen many jaded photographers that have shot the same venue so many times that it becomes a disconnected robotic procedure to them, just ticking off a set routine to churn out yet another generic wedding day set of photos.

We really couldn't recommend Phil highly enough! We booked Philtographie for our wedding at The Matara Centre last year and we were so please we did. At the time of booking we looked at loads of different photographers and it was turning into a bit of a minefield who to go with. But we spoke with Phil and he seemed really laid back but knowledgeable and his photos, videos and albums are amazing. We ended up choosing his top package and again definitely the right choice as the extras you get in that make it amazing value compared to other photographers of that quality.
We also really enjoyed our engagement shoot, Phil got us to laugh and made us relaxed and he took some lovely shots of the both of us with our crazy dogs. We were thinking of trying to save some money and not do the engagement shoot but really glad we did as obviously you get lovely photos but it also gets you used to being in front of the camera.
Anyway, definitely book Philtographie, he's a lovely guy and an amazing photographer.

Thanks Jim, it was a really great day wasn't it. I love shooting at Matara as there are so many places to go and Sarah looked so stunning it was impossible to take a bad photo really! I look forward to that new born shoot you promised :-)

My wife and I saw Phil's (Philtographie) work on FB and instantly knew he was who wanted. We loved his friendly, candid approach and his photos speaks for itself. We have been to weddings where the photographer wants to be the centre of attention but Phil is thankfully not like this at all.
He was brilliant with our children too who normally don't like getting there photos takes but he won them over.
We really can't recommend Philtographie enough, Phil takes amazing photos.

I can not speak highly enough of Phil. He worked so hard all day and he even sent us some 'sneak peak' photos that same evening so we could post on FB really quickly. The rest of the photos came about 2 weeks later and OMG they were so amazing. We were so happy that we chose Phil, he was super friendly, really laid back and easy to get along with. We had a couple of issues leading up to the wedding and Phil was so accommodating and helpful. Honestly book him and you won't be disappointed. More...

Hi Jess, thank you so much for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure to shoot yours and Steve's wedding and I knew we would warm Kaley up to the camera. :-)

We booked Phil for our wedding at The Kingscote Barn last year, we got our photos really quickly and they were amazing, we were so so happy. We got way more photos than we were expecting and he captured every big of our day.
It was such a great day and I really loved my preparation photos of me and my girls getting ready. Watching the video back of us saying out vows is really magical.

Hi Tracy, great to hear from you. Thank you so much for your review. The Kingscote Barn is such a gorgeous wedding venue and we were so lucky with the weather. I hope Gary's head wasn't too sore the next day ;-)

Phil was brilliant!! Such amazing photos, he was really easy going and made us totally relaxed as we aren't great in front of the camera normally.
He got some great photos of our guests and the album he gave us is so amazing.
Also the videos are really great too as we weren't going to get a videographer because we couldn't afford it but then Phil includes this in his package.
I can't recommend him enough.

We recently used Phil for a family event and he was amazing! Phil was easy to work with in the lead up to the event and great on the day - working flexibly and making guests feel comfortable. The photos are absolutely brilliant and I would highly recommend him! More...

Phil was recommended to me by a friend for our wedding photos and we're SO glad we went with him. He's kind, friendly and hardworking and made us feel relaxed and at ease having our photos taken (and we are not naturals in front of the camera) All our guests loved him too and the quality of the photos and videos are superb! Our package included an engagement shoot (including our kids), all day at our wedding, video footage of key moments (ceremony, first dance and speeches) and a beautiful photo book. It was excellent value for money and I will be recommending Phil to everyone I know who has a special event coming up. More...

If you do not go with Phil then you are mad!! Phil is an excellent, natural photographer who knows exactly how to capture those beautiful moments. Phil was born with a camera in his hand. Excellent value for money, we are so pleased with our wedding photographs. More...

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.

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! More...

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 More...

Amazing photographs that do show that life is beautiful!

Q&A

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.

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.

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

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.
