Capture Memories

“You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you,
as you are to them."
Desmond Tutu

Engagement Photography

Capturing A Moment

“My Whole Heart For My Whole Life”
(Trad. French Saying)

“Perfect engagement photographs capture both the moment and the couple; they record not just the time and place, but reveal the personality of the couple too. My engagement photographs capture this special moment in a couple’s life, where sometimes the detail of a look, a glance or a touch are as significant as the location, in telling the story.”

Wedding Photography

Capturing Beauty

“Marriage: Love is the reason. Lifelong friendship is the gift. Kindness is the cause. Til’ death do us part is the length.” (Fawn Weaver)

“Photographing a couple’s special day is a privilege; capturing it in precisely the style they want is an art. Whether you want formal or quirky images; are inviting two guests or two thousand, I offer a range of completely flexible photographic packages which can be tailored to suit almost any budget. Contact me and tell me how your perfect photographs look in your imagination!”

Family Photography

Capturing Memories

“You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.”     (Desmond Tutu)

“I believe its important to record key milestone moments in family life,  the birth of a baby, a graduation, a special birthday, or just a celebration of life.  A great photograph brings back great memories.”

Portrait Photography

Capturing You

“Take care of all your memories. For you cannot relive them.”    (Bob Dylan)

“Sometimes you don’t need a special occasion to book a photo session! While a great photo of your own children or family is a fantastic thing to own, you can also give a photographic portrait session as a gift to another family or friend to enjoy. Contact me for details of how to arrange a photo shoot as a gift for someone.”

Architectural & Interior Photography

“Architecture is the masterly, correct and magnificent play of masses brought together in light.”

(Le Corbusier)

“We have been blessed with eyes which can perceive a larger range of light and shade than even the most modern cameras.  Capturing the nuances of this shading is key to great architectural and interior photography.  Much like music is the careful placement of silence around notes, so is architectural and interior photography – let the space breathe and reveal its story. “

PR & Event Photography

“Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make but about the stories you tell.”

(Seth Godin)

“Providing eye-catching, dynamic images which will bring your business communication to life. High-quality photographs of your product-launch, press conference, gig, staff, products or premises can be crafted to capture an event, or provide images suitable for print, or web-based marketing and communication. Photos can be small and simple enough to engage the smartphone user; or detailed enough to create posters and banners. These images are suitable for web-sites, web-based marketing and all forms of social media.”

Phil captured our special day perfectly! We got to meet before the big day to discuss the shoots that we wanted and the style of photo we were looking for. Very professional and amazing photos, he has a great eye for capturing the right photos in the perfect lighting.
Highly recommend to those looking for a photographer for any occasion. He made everybody feel at ease while taking pictures including my 4 nephews who can be camera shy. Thanks again Phil!

Phil came to our home and immediately put us all at ease for our photo shoot.
He worked so well with our 3 year old and newborn and managed to capture their personalities perfectly in the photos. He took a variety of family shots, all natural and special.
Thanks Phil and we would highly recommend your photography skills to all!

Phil captured the most amazing photos for the engagement of Jack and Myself. All of the ideas Jack and I had Phil was more than happy do and Phil really listened to what we were looking for but he also had many ideas of his own. I am very pleased with all the photos and also Phil's professionalism when taking the photos. I am looking forward to Phil taking our photos on our Wedding day as I am confident Phil will capture all the special moments throughout the day and will create an album of beautiful photos. Thank you

Donna Barlow, Bride

Phil created the most stunning Wedding photos for Billy and I when we celebrated our magical day on 20th April 2013. He captured everything and everyone that was important to us and injected humour into many photos. Everyone commented on his professionalism and loved the album he produced. Billy and I were so delighted with our photos, it's a beautiful keepsake from a wonderful day. Thank you Phil!

Phil has now produced three first class small films for us. His willingness to enter into the purpose of the film is inspiring; he really shows an active interest in the work we're doing. His technical ability is second to none. But his greatest selling point is his humanity and friendly and likeable persona, which makes working with him a dream.
