I'm Phil, a fun loving father and adventurer with a camera. I'm what you consider to be a documentary wedding photographer, meaning I'm like a fly on the wall when it comes to your wedding day. I become part of the wedding party shooting from the inside out meaning I'm amongst your guests giving you an up close, personal and unique take on your wedding story. Everything is on the cards to be captured as its all part of your story, the beuaty, the laughter, the tears. I want to create work that goes beyond what you could even articulate as "how you see your wedding." My works been described as elegant, stylish and filled with energy. If that sounds like you resonate with it we're off to a flying start!
So, I'm a father first to the little legend Chloe Lou and I guess you could say she's the one responsible for my photography. This little lady gave me a such an appreciation for life, looking at it completely different and realising constantly that the moments that are always happening wont ever be repeated to embrace everyone of them! With that I decided I wanted to ensure I document as many of those moments and soon realised the value of it not just for myself but for everyone else I was photographing. Very quickly it became apparent people enjoyed what I did and the ball started rolling with me becoming a wedding photographer.
I look to create unique, modern & timeless images for you both keeping it fun and relaxed, (believe me I know it can be un-nerving being photographed.) I want to create a time capsule that you can open up look through and not just visualise but relive those feelings on your wedding day.
I work as a Manchester wedding photographer but shoot all over the UK and abroad. Want to know what it looks like from my perspective of a wedding, check out my portfolio page here.
The promise I make to myself for every wedding I capture is to ensure I don't just show how it looked but equally as important if not more so, how it felt!
