Hello & thank you for visiting, my name is Simon & I am a documentary photographer.
I grew up in Darlington & finished University in 2004, since then I have split my time between the north east of England & London. But any week can find me almost anywhere in the country taking photographs & I'm very lucky to be able to do what I love for a living.
Since photographing my first wedding in 2007, I have been fortunate enough to photograph weddings in New York City, Sicily, New Zealand, throughout London, all across the UK & occasionally further afield (I'm ready & willing to travel almost anywhere). In that time I've seen every kind of occasion from the very grand to the more intimate, & I know the memories are the same no matter where or how you choose to get married.
Even as a child I was drawn to photographs, to me a photograph documents a happy time in your life & is something to look back on. What I do is record those moments & make them last.
I'm not someone who buys into fads & trends, so I take pictures that I believe will not date & I find those moments naturally rather than staging them. Just like every other day in your life, nothing on your wedding day should be forced.
I believe in a natural style of photography which ensures you won't spend your wedding day constantly posing for photos (while still getting those all important family group photographs), I will find the moments rather than force them. You will build a relationship with me throughout the process & I will work with you to get the photographs you want from your wedding day.
Please browse through my photographs & if you feel I may be suitable for your wedding, I would love to discuss it with you in more detail, so please get in touch, no matter where your wedding is taking place.
