ALL DAY WEDDING COVERAGE

 

So you're looking for an Essex Wedding Photographer or videographer for your wedding, but where do you start? Well let me help you with that.

I am a storytelling photographer and filmmaker and my style is documentary with a touch of editorial. What does that mean? WelI, I will fit in with the structure of your wedding day, documenting the details and key events naturally. The only styling of images and film comes in some of the couple portraits or group shots - but I still ensure they appear natural and unforced. The key for me is to make sure you're relaxed around the camera, that your focus is on the wedding and not the photographer or videographer. My images from your wedding will be a reflection of the fun moments, the intimate moments, the uniqueness of your day, the love and laughter. My editing style is to present images and videography that reflect the warmth, brightness and colour of your wedding. 

ABOUT MY STYLE

WHY I LOVE MY JOB

As a wedding photographer and videographer I understand it's a massive privilege to be invited to a couples wedding day. There's a tangible excitement in the air, and the promise of a momentous occasion in the lives of two people, why wouldn't I want to be part of that?! A wedding day is like no other, and it is gone before you know it. That is why documenting your wedding day with accuracy and passion is essential to preserve these precious moments for a lifetime. That's my job and I love it.

WHAT LOCATIONS AND VENUES DO I COVER?

You'll find me a relaxed person to be around. You don't need extra drama on your big day, with someone who is demanding of your time and barks orders. None of that thank you! I'm there to document your story whilst keeping things fun and light. I've been told by my couples that I make things easy and hassle free. I'll take that!

WHAT AM I LIKE?

As an Essex Wedding Photographer I cover all areas of Essex including Chelmsford, Southend-on-Sea, Rochford, Colchester, Brentwood and more. I'm also a London wedding photographer too and cover venues in Greater London and the City and also cover venues in Surrey and Kent. 

 

Essex has it all for weddings. Great venues, beautiful countryside, fantastic suppliers - the list goes on. I truly love living and photographing weddings in Essex. If you're looking for Essex Wedding Photography in Chelmsford, Southend or throughout Essex, London and beyond please get in touch.

From start to finish John was brilliantly creative about his suggestions for our video and photos, and captured the spirit and style of our wedding perfectly. He put us all at ease, guiding us through what to expect and how to avoid the camera nerves. The end result was a beautiful package of film and photos that made us all cry (and laugh). We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend John for your special day.

ESSEX WEDDINGS

I've been honoured to have been chosen to cover many weddings all over Essex and London and the UK. I cover venues in South Essex such as Chelmsford, Southend, Rayleigh, Rochford, Brentwood and North Essex in Colchester and Braintree. I also cover weddings in Greater London. I particularly love being a wedding photographer in Essex as the settings of the many varied venues make for beautiful images and I was born and raised in Essex myself.  I only take on a select number of weddings each year so that you can be assured of the best, personal experience from your wedding photo and video coverage. I present your images in beautiful personalised albums, print collection heirloom boxes and on gorgeous online galleries to share with all your guests.
