Your Wedding will be Unique
…So your photographer should be too. I’m not like all the other photographers. I honestly believe that.
I’m from a family of artists, creativity runs in my blood. I’m also a Thoroughly Decent Chap, and won’t take over your day. You’ll like me.
Here’s why you can trust me with your special day.
“We loved having Tim there on our wedding day. And the photos he produced were nothing short of perfect.”
Sophie & Mark Byrne

“Tim is a truly wonderful photographer… and a really nice guy! He captured natural pictures for our wedding and made our guests feel at ease – he even helped reassure my dad when the nerves kicked in!.”

21 Reasons I’m Pretty Decent to Work With
It’s what a photo feels like that is so important.
Emotions are intangible things. You can’t actually photograph them. But if you get it right, a photo can move you back to where you were then so you feel the same feeling.
Your wedding photos are really important to you.
You’ve got one chance to do this. Ever. And when it’s done, your photos are what you’ve got left (and your husband / wife, of course…) So it matters. Trust me. I get it.
I haven’t managed to make a functioning time machine yet.
But good photos are enough to connect us to the past, to who we were (are?) and move us back in time to then. Close enough.
I do love a moody sky.
Which is good because I can’t control the weather. And this is the UK, so it rains whenever it feels like it.
I don’t believe in manufacturing – it’s more about being in the right place at the right time, a step back so you can just be you, at your best. Yes, of course we can do some family groups too. But just enjoy yourself. Trust me. Let me take care of the photos.
I can offer you payment plans to spread the cost of your wedding photography to suit you. No worries, no hassle, no extra fees.
Big, small, church, barn, extravagant, modest, men, ladies. It’s all good. It’s the people that matter.
Other photographers use words like Reportage, Photojournalistic, Vintage, Capturing the Moment, boutique, bespoke, luxury, chic, fine art. All of these sound a bit wanky to me, and I suspect that many of those using them don’t know what they actually mean.
I prefer to think in terms of things like natural, real, human, creative, amazing.
I like your pair of shoes, but…
They don’t define you as a person. Yes of course I’ll photograph them, and all the other little details that go in to making up the rich tapestry of your wedding. But they’re not as important as the pair of you.
I’m always pushing forward.
Not in queues of course, I’m British. But I love trying different ideas for shots, or for making the whole experience the best it can be. This year it’s been smoke bombs and wedding WebApps for my clients. I’ve got 9+ years of experience shooting weddings, so I kind of instinctively know when something fits.
I actually care about this.
It’s true, I admit it. I do really actually care about all my weddings and all my clients. I love shooting weddings, and that shows in how I approach every one, in my photos and in the way I do business.
My customer service is legendary.
I pride myself on my professionalism, and will always return phone calls and emails, and as do what I say I will when I say I will.
No agonisingly long wait for your photos.
I try (and usually succeed) to have your wedding photos ready to show you 3 weeks after the dust has settled.
I’m very polite.
But also capable of crowd control if and when necessary.
It’s your wedding.
If you’ve got requests, ideas, concerns, suggestions or just want to moan about the weather, find me, tell me, on the day, before or after.
I think I might have said this before.
But never mind: I don’t believe you’ll find another wedding photographer more committed to this than I am.
I live and breathe photography.
I do this full time, because I love it. I realised if I didn’t put my whole life into my photography then I probably wouldn’t ever be happy.
I do fusion movies.
A whole new way to tell the story of your wedding alongside your photographs. These haven’t really caught on here yet like they have in the USA, but I think using short video clips alongside still photos creates a narrative like nothing else.
So I know what it’s like. Well done me. And well done Mrs H.
I’m a nice guy to have around.
You’ll probably end up spending a good deal of time with me on your wedding day. More than anyone else you hire to make it happen – so it matters that I’m not a miserable git. I’ll be nice to your auntie, and won’t swear too loudly when I fall over.
I’m really good at this.
Stupid thing to say of course, but it’s also true. Know this: I’ll do my absolute best to make your wedding photos – and your whole day – as completely awesome as possible. You can count on it.
(Yes I know that’s 22 reasons not 21, but who’s counting?)

“My This Is Me film gives something more of an insight into who I am and how I go about doing what I do. Get to know me a little better and see how I work. It has sound, so mute it if you’re in the office!”
