about me, terry

most of my friends call me Tel

most people call me “tel”

Husband, Father, Essex Wedding Photographer, Totally Never Taking Life Too Seriously, Lover Of Disaronno & Long Suffering Spurs Fan!

Hey There…

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 many years ago & love it here!

When I’m not busy taking lovely photos of wonderful people, you can find me catching up with Netflix box sets 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 love my little lot, they keep me grounded, sprinkled with moments of laughs, hugs & copious amounts of pride!

Weddings Are My Thing

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 make memories for them! Does it get any better!?

I didn’t always have my heart set on being a wedding photographer – I guess it was an evolution of what I loved & that was photography & my family. In essence, weddings found me & now there is no turning back…I’m 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!)

You can tell how good a service is by how they react when things go wrong! When our day finally arrived Terry was calm, friendly and organised. My husband and I are not models and actually hate our photos being taken but he really helped us be at ease and stopped at nothing to make sure we got the best end result. And the results speak for themselves!

I would recommend Terry to any couple who are nervous and just want some natural and beautiful photos.
