Hello, I am glad you found me. I’m Andy, a Nottingham wedding photographer who specialises in candid, natural, relaxed and documentary wedding photography, believing in a subtle approach to photography to capture the natural beauty of your day.
If you want a wedding photographer to take over your day, to shout at your guests, to take you away from your family and friends for hours on end to do formal picture after formal picture – then I’m not the wedding photographer for you, but if you want your wedding story told in a beautiful, emotional and honest way – then welcome, you have come to the right place.
Weddings are not only an important day in a couple’s lives but a beautiful prologue to their stories. It marks both the beginning and end of a phase of their lives, as they leave their separate lives behind and begin a new life together.
Second, to a photographer, I am a storyteller and believe the mark of this new chapter needs to be told in the best possible way. My goal is to capture natural, beautiful, fun and unposed wedding photos, giving you a comprehensive story of your wedding in whatever format It takes!
With my style and my experience, I will bring these special memories to life for years to come, in a creative, honest, and beautiful way.
I believe a wedding should flow, it is a day to be enjoyed by everyone, meaning so much not only to the Bride and Groom but all their loved ones too. It’s this that carries my passion for wedding photography: I follow the day as it happens, capturing all those special moments of not just the Bride and Groom but of friends reuniting, surprise family guests and every joyous hug and tear shed.
It’s these moments that build your wedding day to leave you with special memories you will cherish.
Of course, photography style is unique to each individual wedding photographer and it’s so important to find a photographer for your wedding that fits you on a personal level with you and your partner, your family and friends and whose wedding photography style and personality fits in with your wedding, whether that be a church wedding, a humanist wedding, a civil wedding or a same sex wedding.
Acting discreetly, I capture the morning preparations be it with the Bride and Bridesmaids preparing each other for the special day or capturing the Groom and his guys chilling in the pub.
I love to capture the tears and laughter as the dress goes on, the fun and games as you all squeeze into the car to arriving at the altar as your partner sees you for the first time on your wedding day.
I believe that these are the priceless moments of a wedding that should be captured and treasured forever; a father walking his daughter down the aisle, the moment you say ‘I do’ and the joyous celebration as you walk back down the aisle hand in hand.
With years of experience providing wedding photography in Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and all across the UK, I have developed a style unique to my photography. I don’t believe in over-editing and airbrushing photos, seeking to capture the natural beauty in the bride and groom, their guests, and their surroundings. My photos tell the story of the wedding day, and their finish reflects this so that when you look at your wedding photographs you can almost feel as though you are there.
These wedding photofilms give you a snapshot into my style and what it is I am trying to achieve for you with my photography – the photofilms are only a few minutes long – but perfectly shows my unobtrusive, unposed, unique wedding photography style.
With prices starting from £600, I don’t believe that wedding photography should have to break the bank – after all, weddings are expensive enough.
It is my passion to capture your special day for you, which is why I’m pleased to offer a solution for affordable wedding photography in Nottingham. If you’re working on a budget, then please get in contact and I will be more than happy to send you my wedding prices for Nottingham and the surrounding areas.
As a highly recommended wedding photographer in Nottingham, my photography has taken me to so many weddings in the area giving me an extensive understanding of many of the venues and surroundings. where lighting works best and what angles to take.
Upon hiring me as your wedding photographer, I will sit down with you to discuss thoroughly what you would like out of the day and most importantly, get to know you both. I believe that images are captured best if you are comfortable and you feel as though I am just another guest on your special day.
These are what that I firmly believe in, moments that happen naturally and not staged – you will look back on these moments and you will remember the moment, not the pose or position you were put in. I believe In shooting the wedding from the inside out, to shoot as a friend and a guest; this helps me capture the story of your special day, show you the fun, emotion and great times you, your family and friends had. I don’t believe in hiding and shooting from distance, the Sony Alpha System allows me to be close to the action without impacting on your day.
I work hard to provide timeless, reportage photography, focusing on participation and observation – and I promise not to have you running through cornfields or doing piggybacks!

Andy is absolutely amazing! He’s in touch with you regularly up until the big day, offers loads of support and information throughout the whole process. On the day Andy is fantastic, I had so many people commenting on how lovely the photographer was and how he wasn’t intrusive at all. Andy was more than happy to potter around and chat to my crazy family making everyone feel at ease. Also, allll of the images are so gorgeous and really show the story of our big day. Couldn’t recommend Andy enough! Thank you so much!
I really can’t thank Andy enough, he was a pleasure to work with from the very first time I contacted him about possibly photographing our wedding. He answered all of our questions no matter how small as if they were the most important issue. The photos we’ve got back have blown us away! He captured moments of the day that escaped us, as well as all the important bits which are memories for years to come. He also took an audio recording of the ceremony and set this to a photo slideshow that is simply magical. I’m so glad we chose Andy and cannot recommend him highly enough.
Andy was photographer at our Wedding at Swancar Farm. We cannot recommend him enough. From the moment we booked him everything was so easy. We simply left him to it knowing that whatever he did would be brilliant. At times we didn’t even realise he was there. We can’t thank you enough for making our day so special. Thanks Joe and Laura
Andy is a fantastic photographer and a lovely guy! From the first time we spoke on the phone, I knew he would capture our day perfectly! He understood what I wanted more than I did and nothing was too much for him. My favourite photos of the day are ones I didn’t know were being taken! A number of our guests have since commented about how discreet he was, they had no idea he took as many photos of them as he did. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone looking for a photographer! I’m already trying to plan another event just to ask Andy to take more photos. (Thank you Andy for capturing the day and giving us beautiful photos to look back on!)
Andy captured the day perfectly, you can see all the emotion of the day in the pictures but they are all perfectly relaxed and natural. We actually forgot that he was there snapping away. I would highly recommend him for any couple getting married, not only is his photography such an amazing quality but he truly is a nice bloke. Thank you Andy
Andy made everyone feel relaxed, especially in the morning of the wedding. There were no intrusive or forced photos so every picture showed natural laughs, smiles and tears. We felt our day had been captured perfectly and Andy didn’t miss a moment
Andy blended in with the guests and looking back, I hardly remember seeing him but he has taken some AMAZING photos, which were better than I could have imagined. We had a slightly haphazard wedding with not much structure and Andy stayed well into the evening catching lots of wonderful moments for us. I can’t recommend him enough – if you want to really capture how the day goes and get a story of what happened, Andy can do that for you
We had so many gorgeous pictures to choose from, and the way he captures the special moments in such an informal way made it a joy to keep revisiting the online gallery he set up. Andy is a professional from start to finish and we can’t recommend him enough
