Capturing moments, making memories.
Welcome and thank you for visiting my website.
Congratulations! You're going to get married!!
My name is Kevin and I Love celebrating Love in all it's glory!
A wedding is a celebration of the love two people have for each other. It is a day when they share that love with their family and friends. A day full of over whelming joy, fun, spontaneity and wonderful moments that will never be repeated.
I like to think of what I do as the art of capturing that love you have for each other. Capturing those wonderful moments showing not just how you looked, but how you FELT. The bringing together of the essential elements to craft photographs that stir emotions deep within us.
You will have some important decisions to make when planning your perfect wedding. Finding the wedding photographer that's right for you is one of them.
A photographer that can capture your love for eachother and your wonderful moments, your day in the way you want to remember it. A photogapher who allows you to get so caught up in the moment that you forget you're being photographed.
If that sounds like the type of wedding photographer you are looking for then great, stay and have a good look around. I have included a lot of useful information on my website, both about me and about wedding photography in general.
I am based in Manningtree, which is on the border of Suffolk and Essex between Ipswich and Colchester and have travelled across the UK and Ireland photographing the weddings of some truely awesome and fun loving couples.
It is my hope to have the honour of telling the story of your Wedding Day through the powerful medium of photography.
Often the first thing you will be considering is the photographer's "style". You may be looking for "traditional" wedding photography, a more "contemporary" style or perhaps a photographer who photographs weddings in a purely "photo-journalistic" way.
I believe that to truly tell your love story and the story of your day, all three styles play a part. There will be moments for traditional wedding photographs, moments for photo-journalism and moments when a contemporary style works best. All three styles then blended together to tell the perfect story.
I also believe a wedding photographer should be able to handle all three of these styles on your big day in a relaxed and fun way.
I understand that being your photographer for your wedding day is a huge responsibility and privilege. You are trusting me with the one thing that will last for years to come and help keep your memories of your special day alive. Something that will become part of your family history. Your Wedding photographs.
So, why choose me to tell the story of your Wedding Day?
Beautiful Emotive Photography. I will work in a documentary way concentrating on you and your loved ones to capture those very special moments. All the fun, the laughter and other emotions naturally as they happen during your wedding day.
Storytelling Photography. Most of the time, you'll hardly notice me as I tell your story in a responsible and sympathetic way. Naturally, there will be times when you do as I take a few casually posed photographs together with some creative portraits to provide the perfect balance.
A practice before your Wedding Day. If you are feeling anxious about your Wedding Photography, why not have a practice before the day. Your photography should be a fun experience so I include a practice session free of charge if you would like one, to help you both feel at ease and relaxed on your Wedding Day.
Timeless Photography. Elegant and stylish Wedding Photography, in both colour and black & white, that will never go out of fashion.
One or two Photographers. I am a full time professional photographer and you have the option of a second photographer if you need one.
Quality and Service. I'm obsessive about it. Yes, everyone says it. I mean it. I offer a relaxed but highly professional service while adding that very important personal touch.
High resolution digital images. All images are individually finished with professional processing techniques to ensure high standards and come with permission to print as many copies as you like for your own personal use. Your friends and family can too!
The Finest Wedding Albums. With a huge range of options to choose from your wedding album will be unique to you. Made by Queensberry from the highest quality materials, these Wedding Albums are designed to last a lifetime and beyond.
Others are saying great things. Whilst I am absolutely thrilled to be included in "Ten Top Wedding Photographers for Essex" and have my work officially recognised by fellow professional wedding photographers, it's the opinions of my clients that matters most to me. One of my couples won the award for being "Essex's Most Romantic Couple" and you can read what they and others have to say about my wedding photography services in Kind Words and Some More.
A choice of coverage. Bespoke packages designed to suit your needs.
To help you decide whether I am the right photographer for your day, I have included several galleries of photographs for you to look at. With over 50,000 photographs of real couples on their wedding day you might not be able to easily find exactly what you are looking for, so I have included some guidance to help you navigate your way around my site under the Wedding Portfolio heading.
If you would like to see a selection from different weddings, take a look here on my Homepage. For the morning preparations look at Your Day Begins, for the ceremony and after go to The Main Event and for all those important little details, look at The Details.
If you would like to see a selection of photographs all taken at a single wedding, take a look at my All In One Day gallery or some of my venue specific galleries listed below.
Or if you would like to see something of the lighter side of the day, go to Just for fun.

If your chosen venue doesn't have it's own gallery and you would like to see whether I have photographed a wedding there before, take a look at Wedding Venues.
Please take the time to look through some of my galleries. It will be time spent wisely and, if you hover your mouse pointer over the images on Your Day Begins, The Main Event, The Details, All In One Day and Just for Fun, you will get a real "feel" for the true story telling nature of my photography.

Thinking about investing in a Wedding Album but not sure if it's right for you? Take a look at my Wedding Albums page for some friendly advice.

You can find them under Album Designs, (PLEASE NOTE: To be able to view them in their full glory, you will need to have Flash Player installed on your device).

The Top 10 section gives short answers to some very popular questions, whilst the More section gives more detailed answers and includes even more questions you might be thinking about asking. These are the questions you should be asking your wedding photographer, so please invest some time in reading them and the answers. It will be time well spent and should help you choose the photographer that is right for you and your big day.
