natural & stylish essex wedding photography

By laidback essex wedding photographer, terry

I’m a well known Hertfordshire, Kent , London and Essex wedding photographer. So, whether you choose a wedding close to me in Essex or elsewhere in the UK, I’ll be with you to produce a beautiful set of natural & contemporary photographs for your wedding day.

I’ve been a wedding photographer in Essex for 5 years now and have lots of experience & knowledge about Essex wedding venues including Gosfield Hall, Leez Priory, Quendon Hall, Maidens Barn & Newland Hall to name but a few. On either side of Essex, I also regularly cover wedding photography in Kent, wedding photography in Herts and cover weddings as a London wedding photographer too.

Of course, if you are little further away then I am open to travelling pretty much anywhere too.My passport is in date, so if you are having a destination wedding and need a wedding photographer who likes adventure then please get in touch – I’d love to be considered for your special day.

All the right moments captured

Making sure you have all the right memories captured as your wedding photographer is my job. I’ll aim to capture all the emotion in a natural & candid style, whilst at the same time ensuring we have plenty of time for some stylised portraits, once again though, you can be sure these will be photographed with elements of natural emotion.

Of course if you want your wedding day to reflect a true documentary wedding photography approach, then I can easily alter my normal style to accommodate. Having a level of versatility as a wedding photographer allows me to be flexible in my approach to wedding photography. 

Take a look at my wedding gallery to see if my style is something you are looking for.

So what do you get?

Trying to create that one ideal collection that works for everyone is nigh on impossible, so I created a set of collections that I feel are what most couples want from their wedding photography.

I have packages that include just coverage from the ceremony till first dance, however my most popular packages are the ones where you get the full story telling approach, so that means from the start till the finish! I love staying way past the first dance, when the celebrations really get flowing & leaving any wedding before 10pm is a rare occurrence for me.

I believe in preserving memories & there is no better way to do this than in print, more directly wedding albums, so I have these in my collections too or available to purchase as a standalone option too.

Featured Weddings from the journal

I feel having a journal is a great way to showcase my work, where you can get a greater sense of my style. Every wedding I post about is as special as the day I was there. I don’t normally add weddings to my journal through the busier parts of the year, however they do get updated during quieter months, so keep an eye open for new and exciting weddings that I attend throughout the year. I should also add that I do a few feature articles about various wedding related topics, which have become quite popular – check them out in the journal too!
