I’m Simon, a documentary wedding photographer and cinematographer based in West Yorkshire.
A wedding photographer and videographer in the Yorkshire region. I love the great outdoors and to travel, whether that be abroad, at the top of a mountain or just across a border.
What separates me from the rest of the photographers is the ability to shoot silently! During your vows there is nothing worse than having photographers clicking away spoiling the moment. The Sony A9 and A7iii are leaps and bounds above the rest of the market when it comes to this genre. My clients have commended me for my unobtrusive approach and were overwhelmed with the results, especially when they didn’t even know I had taken that special shot.
If you’re after bold, fun, energetic images, or more of a fashion styled, elegant artistic set for keepsakes, I've got you covered!
Style and approach.
My style is natural and relaxed with the odd staged formal composition. By combining documentary, candid and artistic wedding photographs and film, my clients are always happy with the results. Weddings are joyful for everyone and I find this easier to do so with a relaxed and creative nature. I truly love weddings and look forward to them all the time.
I approach photography and life in general with a simple family moto “treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself”.
I joined the Army at a young age of 17 which helped instill this moto. With 16 years of accumulated service with both the Army and RAF, with over 5 years of operational tours; in Afghanistan, Bosnia, and N.Ireland to name a few. During my service I became a full time Joint Service Adventurous Training Instructor and this is where I found my love for Photography and videography.
Whilst studying a Masters in Photography Art with Falmouth University, I found that the learning never ends. I truly see composition in a different aspect now and I'm always looking to tell a story, whether that be with stills or film.
There is no job too big, small or stressful.
I’m accustomed to living life on the edge, having bullets shot at me, dodging rocket attacks, living in snow holes, hanging off rock faces, climbing or Skiing down a mountain face, or having the honour of putting a smile on a princesses face! You'll probably see me wearing a camera or two, getting drone footage, grappling with a gimbal or a slider with a big grin on my face. Capturing that special moment for you to treasure.... forever.
