My story is a simple one, yet fun because that's how I choose to make it - I am married to the most perfect woman, Hayley. I have three wonderful kids, Kyle, Reilly & Elise and our handsome Rhemy, an adorable Cockerpoo. I live in Essex, I photograph couples wonderful weddings and love being a techie, geeky kind of guy.
Family time is my most precious valuable - they are everything!
ABOUT TERRY, YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I haven’t told you yet, but I really prefer to be called Tel – Just want to get that out of the way, as being called Terry was what my mum would call me when I was being a little bugger!
Now that’s out of the way, I’m Tel and I am an Essex wedding photographer, living in Basildon. Originally I come from North London and moved to Essex 14 years ago & love it here!
When I’m not busy taking lovely photos of wonderful people, you can find me catching up with Netflix boxsets and spending copious amounts of time with my beautiful wife, Hayley and my three gorgeous Kids. I also spend far too much time watching Moto GP & Football (much to my wife’s displeasure).
I really do LOVE my day job though! Being a wedding photographer in Chelmsford, Essex is as cool as it gets for me. I mean what’s not to love? I get to meet some brilliant & funny couples who invite me to their weddings to take some cool as f**k images for them! Does it get any better!?
I used to be a plasterer and general builder and there was nothing worse doing a job you hate with a passion – I had to get out and my photography passion led me to wedding photography and I was hooked.
I love seeing couples faces when they receive their images – they are like little kids in a sweet shop with expressions of love and delight etched all over their faces – I love it, it gives me a sense of enormous well being (Parklife!)
WHAT MAKES MY IDEAL COUPLE?
FUN, LAUGHS & TOTALLY CHILLED
in one word? FUN!
I love people who make me laugh & I love spending my time at weddings cracking jokes & mingling with fun people. Trust me when I say we'll have a great time if you don't take yourself too seriously!
LOVE THEIR MEMORIES
For me, nothing beats a great wedding, but having great memories that show just how good your wedding was is priceless! I also love creating timeless portraits of wedding couples - get that sunset out!
Love binge watching Game Of Thrones
It is my all-time fave show (Can't believe as I write this the series is finished...Sad face). I love fruit cake (I consider myself a bit of a one actually) & copious amounts of coffee! I also love my music - anything from Queen to Pink Floyd. No excuse for Justin Bieber to be regarded as music :)
Some more info about me

Layer Marney Towers wedding
Terry was just perfect!! He has done such a fantastic job of capturing our special day!
He immediately made me feel at ease when he arrived as having the photos done was something I was worried about but he was so friendly and just knew exactly what to do to get the best shots.
So happy he was our photographer! Can’t thank him enough I would most definitely recommend him we are very happy with our photos x
thank you Terry xx
