Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer

Welcome! I am a professional wedding photographer working in Hertfordshire. I love to capture candid, natural moments of the wedding day and have over 10 years of experience shooting weddings across the South of England and a few further afield, even abroad! My style focuses on reportage and relaxed photography, and I love capturing spontaneous moments and raw emotion between family and friends celebrating your wedding day. I want you to see your wedding photography as a picture book telling your love story from bridal prep to the first dance.


So take a look around! Check out some of my recent weddings from across the UK, my photography portfolio, prices and information or get in touch, let me know your wedding date and venue and we'll go from there!


About Me - Professional Hertfordshire Photographer


Hi! I'm Phil and I'm a professional photographer based around LONDON & the Home Counties, and I love Capturing Wedding moments like these...

With camera in hand, I look to capture your wedding day with a candid and natural approach, occasionally getting involved to capture some more creative ideas, creating a unique style of wedding photography for your special day. I shoot wedding photography in Hertfordshire, including Stevenage, St Albans, Hertford, Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, Hemel Hempstead and Watford.


I aim to create a wedding photography story of memories and happy moments through the edit of the photographs and the lay out of your wedding album.


Find out more about my photography by looking through the info page, my blog or read what other people have to say about my work. If you have any other questions, or to check if I’m available, get in touch via the contact page.


I restrict myself to a limited amount of weddings per year and dates get booked up quickly so...


Wedding photographer in St Albans

We would, without hesitation, recommend Philip as a wedding photographer. He made us both feel extremely at ease from the get go on our big day. He really helped create a relaxed atmosphere whilst helping us organise people into the right places! We are so pleased with the photos he captured of our special day which he turned around incredibly quickly and provided to us beautifully packaged.

Weddings are all about those special moments and I hunt these moments down with lightning reactions to capture them with click of the shutter.


My clients work with me because they love the relaxed, documentary wedding photography style, but they also appreciate that we need to spend just a couple of minutes to capture those money shots! My creative skills, together with a robust selection of camera equipment and accessories, mean that we can collaborate to capture special moments between you both, creating some ultimate wedding photography for you both.


I’ve been really lucky to work with so many great couples over the years. I’ve also had the pleasure of working at so many wedding venues across the London & the South East.

Phil is a hugely talented, reliable and organised professional, but perhaps most of all a great guy. He was one of the first people we discussed our wedding plans with, and his wealth of experience played a huge part not just in our wedding photographs (which are better than we could have ever imagined!), but in the planning and execution of almost every aspect of our big day. From day one of our wedding planning onward, Phil went considerably out of his way to 'be there' for us when we needed. Always amazingly fast to reply to our many questions, he was the calming voice of reason both before but especially during our ceremony and reception. In fact on the day itself, Phil ended up effectively taking on the role of our event organiser when we realised (surprise surprise) that yes, we were going to be too busy to coordinate five different contractors and 100 guests ourselves. This would have been impressive enough, but most of all we have been blown away by the quality of Phil's artwork. His photos are totally beautiful and unique, and we will forever cherish the images both Phil and his amazing assistant Gosia took of our family and friends. A few months on, we still look at them every day. Phil, thank you so much, you are utterly amazing and we couldn't recommend you highly enough to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Reportage Wedding Photography

Well, reportage wedding photography is all about trying to shoot your wedding like a photojournalist. Jumping right into the action, but without being seen. It’s a hard job, but someone’s gotta do it! Capturing weddings with a discreet approach, trying to be silent and unseen to then snap those authentic, real moments between you and your guests. It’s creating and telling the story through pictures, with all those details you’ve planned and designed as part of your unique day; the wedding cake or cheese tower, the wildflower shower bouquet or classic collection of roses and the perfect speech by your dad (or mum) that makes you cry and the laughter and jokes from the best man or maid of honour. I don’t ever want to miss a moment, and I’ll work hard to make sure that you have every memory cherished in your wedding album or as a set of prints with your USB box.



I shoot all around the South East and London, and I’ve been lucky to travel all over the UK shooting weddings. Though I shoot weddings in Hertfordshire, I also shoot lots of weddings in Sussex, Hampshire, London, Berkshire, Kent, Buckinghamshire. I love shooting weddings in Welwyn Garden City and Watford, in the Chilterns and the Ridgeway. I’ve also been lucky enough to photograph destination weddings in Italy and am happy to travel all over the world with a camera in my hand. I love to travel, but southern England is where my heart is and I love shooting all over the South of England, from the Cotswolds to Dover.
