I capture the elegance and the fun of your day …
It’s your day and my role is to capture it and produce images you will treasure.
I love to photograph people’s emotions, and the detail – I photograph your special day myself and take a pride in my work.I am based in Reading but I am very happy to travel.
I have shot more than 350 weddings and civil partnerships and I produce a mix of reportage style and classic images. The approach is flexible and captures the unique story.
I capture the action, the detail and gentle, natural photos of the couple, family and guests. My style of coverage allows you to get on with the fun and spending time with family and friends rather than feel that the photography dominates your day.
The wide range of my other work gives me the ability to capture the moment and be flexible.
A pre-wedding shoot is included in all of my packages – it gets you used to being in front of a camera, its fun to meet and helps you to relax for the photos on the big day.
All weddings are different and I am happy to discuss your specific wishes.
I can tailor the package to suit your needs and budget.

Based in Caversham meetings often take place on a Sunday morning or in the evenings.
My images have been widely published for over 30 years and the variety of my photographic work helps me create lovely wedding photographs. Photography is my passion and not just a job. I blend in well and have photographed weddings from a dozen or so guests to several hundred.
I ensure that the photography experience is fun and relaxed!
Is it you that will be there? I am responsible for all the photography on the day and will be the sole photographer. I discuss your requirements at the initial meeting and later over the practice session and help guide you through the day. I work with a vast range of people and ages.
Travel? I am happy to travel, and have covered weddings and other commissions all over the UK. I work out a nominal cost based on the location.
How many images do you take? I take numerous shots, which I give a rigorous editing process to give me more choice in producing a final selection of 200-400 images or more. The exact number depends on, number of guests, attendance time, weather etc.
Is VAT extra? VAT is not added to prices and I avoid hidden extras.
Do you do group pictures? Yes, I shoot several family groups shots as quickly as possible so it doesn’t take you away from your fun. Too many takes you away from your guests. Immediate family photographs should be completed about twenty minutes. I then shoot photographs of the two of you and then continue with informal photographs.
Do you provide albums / frame photos? As well as disc only packages a range of story books and albums is available.
Can we have our photos on the web? Your family and guests can view and buy from the secure website. Each wedding has a unique code and only you and your family and friends can see the photographs.
“Stephen was excellent from start to finish. With so much to organise it is a bit daunting choosing the right person to take the pictures but Stephen was great. He took some fabulous natural shots – you didn’t even know he was there! It was so difficult to narrow down for the album – as there was so much choice!
He is clearly very gifted at what he does as he really captured the mood of the day in every picture he took. The album tells a special story and we will be able to look back on our wonderful day in many years to come and remember every special moment so well because of the quality of the pictures he took.”

“Friendly, professional service! – From the beginning Stephen was very attentive to our requests, but also helped to give advice on the style and shots that would work best at our location. On the day Stephen was unobtrusive and yet still managed to get all the informal photos we wanted. I definitely would recommend Stephen for high quality photos in a relaxed and friendly way.”
Nicky and Urooj
Thank you for being an absolute star at our wedding! The photos are superb and a marvelous record of our day and you made our day so special by being so gentle. It was so relaxing and we didn’t have to worry at all about the photos at all.”
Sally and Tony
“Stephen was a real pleasure to work with. His experience and professionalism really shone through on our wedding day, when he discreetly captured some wonderful informal moments as well as delivering the more traditional formal poses. His photos reflect the atmosphere of our wedding day perfectly. Stephen made us all feel at ease on the day and managed to take a huge variety of shots without keeping us away from our guests for very long at all, which we really appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend Stephen to others.”
