Hampshire Wedding Photographer

Hi there, my name is Alex a creative award-winning wedding and engagement photographer capturing weddings throughout the South of the UK. I love everything about weddings, the people, the magical moments, the joy and the laughter. I have put this page together to tell you why I feel I could be your perfect choice for photographing your wedding in Hampshire.

The county of Hampshire offers the perfect blend of coast, city and countryside that combine to deliver every kind of wedding imaginable.  The two national parks of the New Forest and the South Downs are home to spectacular countryside and lots of beautiful wedding venues, many of which offer gorgeous outdoor ceremonies.  The maritime cities of Southampton and Portsmouth offer every type of wedding you would expect from a city including some with a distinctive maritime flavour, like getting married at a lighthouse or on a boat.  Inland the medieval city of Winchester has an abundance of charming and historically rich wedding venues including its famous cathedral and castle.  And across the county, there are numerous beautiful country house hotels such as Audleys Wood and also rustic yet luxurious barn wedding venues for you to choose from. 

I love capturing the magical memories and the story of your wedding day with beautiful timeless images that you can look back on for years to come.  Hampshire has its own distinct character, meaning that it also offers a few unique and unusual wedding venues. 

Such as Horsebridge Station where you can soak up the ambience of the vintage and romantic bygone era of steam train travel.  Or the Explosion Museum of Naval Power in Portsmouth Docklands.  Built-in the 18th century as a gunpowder storage area, you get free reign of the museum and the grounds offer beautiful views across the waterfront and the docks. Or Solent Fort where you can get married in a lighthouse on your own little island. 

If you can think it, Hampshire can deliver it so dream big when planning your wedding in Hampshire.

Planning your Hampshire Wedding

You’ve probably found this page looking for a wedding photographer near you or a Hampshire Wedding photographer, so I hope to be able to help you decide and make the right choice for your wedding.

One of the many things I love about being a Hampshire wedding photographer is that it is a county that has beautiful coastline, stunning countryside and vibrant and historically rich cities.  Very few counties get to boast having all three.  It gives Hampshire great diversity, meaning that I get to work at all of those fantastically different wedding venues across the county.  I see my couples get married on boats, in woods, in barns, on pretty gardens, in pretty churches, grand cathedral, ancient castles and elegant boutique hotels.  How lucky am I to be a Hampshire wedding photographer? 

And because Hampshire’s landscape is so beautiful it looks amazing all year round. Spring blooms, summer’s hazy light, autumn’s explosion of colours and winter’s moody skies can all be used to create beautiful, romantic and timeless images. Hampshire is a county for all seasons meaning that your wedding really can’t be spoilt by the weather. This allows us Hampshire Wedding Photographers to capture stunning wedding portraits alongside those little moments that you will treasure.

My Wedding Photography Style

It’s so important to consider the style of wedding photography you like when choosing the best wedding photographer for you.  My style is a fusion of traditional, portrait and reportage, I find this creates a perfect blended approach to capturing every part of your day so you get a real mix of unique and epic photos. From the candid moments between you and your wedding guests, through to atmospheric portraits of you both, I combine these to perfectly capture the excitement of your day. 

As an experienced Hampshire Wedding Photographer, I have built-up many years of knowledge and skills to expertly tell your story. My packages cover all day coverage, from the getting ready preparations in the morning right through to the first dance and evening party late into the night!

For those couples wanting every angle or moment to be captured, I highly recommend adding a second photographer to your package which allows me to work as a team and ensures that groom preparations and additional candid and magical moments are captured.  I have a great network of professional photographers so I can arrange a second photographer for you if you wish. 

Why Wedding Photography Is So Important

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. As your Hampshire Wedding photographer, I will capture every detail and essence of your wedding day in a way that is artistic, emotional and timeless. You want your wedding photographer to capture the emotion and feeling of your special day, and you also want to have beautiful photos that you can look back on in the future. After the cake has been eaten and your dress has been packed away, it will be your wedding photos are all that are left to look back on and feel the love and joy you felt on the day. After all, photos are forever!

How Much Does Wedding Photography Cost?

You are probably at the early stages of your wedding planning so figuring out how much to budget for a wedding photographer.  Choosing how much to set aside in your budget can be daunting. What’s important is to first look at several photographers whose style you like and then figure out what your budget is. It’s also important to work out how important photography is to you on your day.

Although I may be biased, I believe wedding photography should be one of your largest priorities.  My all-day wedding photography packages are competitively priced to suit the middle range of wedding budgets.  Not having restricted hours in my packages makes things a lot clearer up front so that you are not worrying how many hours you need to book me for. 

Plus, my two most popular packages include not only an engagement shoot but also a wedding album to truly tell the story of your day. My wedding photography pricing page goes into more details on my packages and services I offer.

What you will get from me as your wedding photographer?

So, why should you book me as your Hampshire wedding photographer above others you have shortlisted? As you might be unsure on how to choose, I want to make it super simple as to why I could be your perfect choice.

Firstly, if you love my work and my approach to wedding photography that’s absolutely brilliant news and I would love to talk about your plans. Choosing a photographer’s style is so important so if my style suits what you are looking for then I think we could be a great match!

To me, you’re not just another wedding couple.  I only take on a limited number of weddings every year so that I can ensure I give all my attention and care to each and every one of my couples both before, during and after their wedding day. My couples love the personal service they get throughout their wedding experience, I love to get to know you both as a couple so on your wedding day you can relax knowing your wedding photos are taken care of will of course be epic!

I live and breathe photography and being able to capture weddings for madly in love couples, celebrating the greatest day of their life, is both an honour and a privilege! I get so excited before each and every wedding day and I take great care in ensuring I capture creative photos throughout your day.

Couples that book with me have the peace of mind that I have backups throughout my whole process.  Everything is covered from extra cameras, memory cards and batteries along with loads of other extras on the day itself ensuring I am prepared for everything.  I am also fully insured and a member of several leading photography organisations within the UK.

My couples love seeing their finished photos, from the initial wedding slideshow that brings back all the emotion and fun from the day, to the stylish online gallery which includes a complimentary print voucher, and for those who choose an album package, a beautiful truly bespoke wedding album that tells the story of the happiest day of their lives.

On the day of your Hampshire wedding, you will get a full range of photos, including:

Candid photos of you both and your important family and friends

Fun group photos of you with your important family and friends
(you can have as many as you want – I don’t believe in limits!)

Stylish photos of all of your intricate details that you have spent months putting together

Fun and in the action photos of all of the evening celebrations

Plus epic photos of you both!

What about engagement | pre-wedding | proposal photos?

If you’re looking to celebrate your recent engagement with a pre-wedding shoot or just searching for an engagement photographer, I would love to capture some fun and intimate photos of you both in one of the amazing locations that Hampshire has to offer.

If you’re camera shy, this is perfectly normal (it’s not like you have a photographer around you all the time)! Engagement shoots are the best way for you to get to know me and how I work.  I have a relaxed and natural style and every couple I have ever photographed has always mentioned how fun the shoot was!  Most important to me is that you are both relaxed and comfortable which guarantees the best possible photos. Two of my wedding packages include a pre wedding shoot as I feel they are a perfect rehearsal for your couple’s portraits on your wedding day.  Plus, I can give you hints and tips on how to relax in front of the camera. 

Or maybe you are looking to pop the question and are looking for a photographer who can capture your proposal.  What a wonderful way to capture this special and intimate moment to remember forever! I love capturing proposal shoots as there is something truly magical about them and the excitement and nerves just before you get down on one knee is an amazing moment to be captured in a photograph. Best of all, a proposal shoot instantly turns into the perfect opportunity for an engagement shoot so you get two in one!
