If you are looking for someone to take images of your day that will capture the moments, the emotion and the story of the day, then I might be the photographer for you. My idea of wedding photography is not your usual looking straight at the camera formal style, I want to capture the day as it was with all the laughter, love and everything in-between. Of course I can also do the more formal, posed images when required....the parents or grandparents normally demand them!

I like to be pretty much unnoticeable and blend into the background as I'm not into being the centre of attention in any way and I find it helps me capture the moments if people forget I'm there. I’m good at just being myself, which makes people comfortable with me and my camera, this helps in really getting some truly natural, informal moments that help bring out the character of the day in all its glory.

I’ll be there right at the start when you’re getting ready with your friends and I’ll photograph all the excitement and even some of the nerves. I want to show exactly how the day was! Not some staged part, which only tells a fraction about who you both are. Documentary photography is something that really helps in telling the story of the day and everyone who came together to celebrate it with you. There will be images that will make you laugh and some that will make you shed a tear! If I’ve done my job properly it will feel like you’re reliving the day every time you look at the pictures.

Review of Terry Lucas Photography by Fraser Hill

We hired Terry for our wedding.
We didn’t really have firm plans on locations and types of photos but Terry was great about it, really easy to talk to and discus any ideas we did have.
Met him on the day, really funny and relaxed, getting a laugh and smile out of everyone, yet still professional. Super flexible, happy to take what ever photos we or our guests wanted.
Love the results! All photos really easy to access and share with friends and family. Would highly recommend!

Have booked Terry for our wedding in 2020. He had exactly the look we wanted for our wedding. He met us at our venue, which he knew well, and talked through how the day would go.

Terry was professional from the outset. Easy to contact and more than happy to help with any query.
On the day he was amazing. He was an absolute pleasure to have around and really helped the day run smoothly. He just blended in the background yet still got some amazing photos of the day. We would highly recommend Terry and couldn’t have asked for more.

Thank you for your kind words Matt. It was a pleasure to capture your special day. A special thank you to your families for making me so welcome.

Terry took the photos of an important family occasion for us: the 100th birthday party of my father, a lunch with 77 guests, including 7 children. He was charming to deal with during our preparatory meeting, his terms were very reasonable, and the quality of the photos he took were outstanding. During the event, his modus operandi was to stay in the background, to be 'the fly on the wall', rather than to set up individual shots in a proactive way. I wasn't sure this would work, being used to photographers who impose their personality on proceedings. But his results proved me wrong and we are extremely satisfied with his comprehensive and memorable record of a marvellous, family occasion.

In short.... Awesome! We both felt comfortable with Terry straight away, and knew we wanted him to be our photographer. As we were having a slightly unusual wedding, we wanted to get it right, and we did. The idea of two middle-aged lesbians getting married in the grounds of a victorian crematorium, having our hands tied together, and jumping a broom, didn't phase him one bit.
Terry's communication was great, and we had no worries about our wedding photography.
The day was perfect, and Terry was there to record it all. I think he actually enjoyed it to, as it was a little different to his usual function.
Away we went on our honeymoon, watching for a message to say or first look was available to view, and we weren't disappointed. Or photos are wonderful, and we can almost relive or perfect day whenever we look at them. When our memory stick arrived in the post, we had another lovely surprise.... But I'll let you lucky people who hire Terry, discover that one for yourself. ❤️

We hired Terry for our wedding on 26 October 2018. He took some amazing photos on the day, especially the ones when no one knows he's there! When we originally met with Terry to discuss our requirements he was so nice and instantly put us at ease. I would definitely recommend him. He also has some beautiful non wedding related photos on his website.

We were so impressed with Terry. He was completely professional and captured our day in his own unique style. Having a Regency Themed wedding also added to the atmosphere on the day. Thank you so much Terry for taking such gorgeous pictures. The family group shots in costume were particularly stunning - along with the individual photos. We highly recommend Terry for your Wedding or photography projects.

We were very lucky to win a free wedding day with Terry. He was highly professional - contacting us in advance to arrange details, phoning nearer the day to fine tune and meeting us at the church to look at the lighting inside for the day. The photos on the day were fabulous. He managed to get all the group shots that we asked for and lots of natural shots of everyone having fun. The colours that he got in each photo is amazing! We are very impressed with all of our wedding photos and would highly recommend Terry for photography at any event.

We are so glad to have discovered Terry via Bidvine. We had a pre wedding photoshoot with him where we got to know each other and his style a bit better. Terry then also did our wedding photos and we must say that he did an excellent job. Very professional and unintrussive, you barely know he is there. We also got some great shots from the location and our friends and family. We can recommend Terry for your events. Also check out his website and Facebook page; he has som great nature photos too.

Terry came to our rescue at a moments notice and offered a personal, friendly and professional service at an affordable rate.

We love the shots that Terry took and the amount that he managed to get in such a short space of time. Within one day the pictures were published in the password secure gallery to be able to view and the personalised memory stick was posted.

We would highly recommend.

Terry Lucas Photography Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Capturing the moment...so being in the right place at the right time!

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

What type of photos do you want.
Formal or informal.
Traditional/Classic style. (Looking directly at the camera)
Candid style. (Captured without the person being aware they are being photographed)

What do you love most about your job?

I first got behind a camera over 30 years ago and I still remember the days of developing my film in the darkroom! For years photography was, and still is, my passion and I'm fortunate enough to have turned that passion into my job. For me, its the best job in the world! I feel extremely lucky to have a career which allows me to pursue my love of photography, and use it to capture one of the happiest days two people can share!

I wanted to turn my passion for photography into my job. I sometimes still cant believe how lucky I am!
