About

Firstly, a big congratulations on your engagement!

I understand things can get pretty hectic when planning a wedding so would love to make picking a photographer as easy as possible.

Perhaps my favourite description of how I work on the day of a wedding reads something like this, ‘Bob is a fantastic professional who I have and will continue to recommend to all of my friends and family. Having never met him, I felt I’d gained a friend by the end of the day. I couldn’t recommend him enough!

I think that pretty much sums me up! So, if you’re looking to have bright, natural and relaxed wedding photography and a photographer you can feel completely at ease with, then get in touch, let's meet for a coffee and have a chat.

Best supplier of our wedding!

Be prepared for endless compliments from guests if you book Bobby for your wedding. From the second he turned up he was absolutely incredible. I was feeling rather poorly in the room on the morning and had 5 screaming bridesmaids and Bobby came in and actually got me excited for the day ahead.

It was heavy rain and wind on the wedding day and he still managed to pull of the best shots. I’m very uncomfortable in front of cameras and always wondered how couples on wedding days get such lovely natural shots. Bobby had me completely at ease and it felt like just me and my husband in the moment.

Bobbys price point compared to local photographers was also incredible and for the service he provided, he should absolutely charge more, so book him in quick! 😉

We wish you the best in your business as you deserve it, thank you for filling our day with lots of laughs and chuckles! And of course some incredible shots, you captured the most important day of our lives in every way we could have wished for 🥹

Lots of love, Ellamay & Jake from Norwich ❤️

Bob was amazing from start to finish , he put us at ease throughout the day with his kind, caring and relaxed manner. Bob ensured he captured our day exactly how we wanted; he listened to our requests as well as taking a calm but professional lead to ensure the best shots!! He helped organise our guests and gave leads and suggestions to help us get the best out of our wedding photos! We absolutely loved how Bob made everyone feel so relaxed - which our guests commented on , this is definitely reflected in the photos. Thanks very much Bob for capturing beautiful natural photos , memories we will treasure forever.

Bob is the BEST!

We are blown away with our pictures from our big day! They were exactly what we were hoping for. Bob had clearly listened and took on everything we had said in the run up to our big day! And not only that Bob is so lovely! I felt like he was one of our guests! What a great guy to have around on your big day! he made the whole experience even more relaxing and fun! He was so good with our kids too which really helped with trying to get three under 5 to stand for a picture! Amazing couldn’t recommend him enough. Thanks Bob! X

We have amazing photos and memories to keep forever and we couldn't be more grateful for all your support and time! Lovely guy and we couldn't recommend him more if we tried!

Amazing Photographer!

Bobby not only took beautiful photographs, he made us laugh and feel comfortable, which in my view is just as important and one probably leads to the other! He met up with us before our big day, to get to know us and what we wanted, liaised with the hotel and totally took the pressure off. Bobby even sent us a handful of photos the day after our wedding to show family and friends. They are a perfect mix of natural and posed which is what we wanted. All done at a very reasonable price! We recommend Bobby to anyone who wants to capture a special day.

Best photographer!!


Wow what an amazing photographer! So so happy we booked Bobby!

The lead up to the wedding Bobby was texting me asking me for pictures of location so he could get a feel for the place, Bobby also sent me pictures and updates of weddings he had done.

Bobby arrived at our wedding venue early (everyone was still setting up) he took lots of natural shots of people arriving and also took lots of the groom before hand, Bobby then met me and took lots of photos of the bridal party, throughout the day nothing was too much trouble for Bobby everything I asked for Bobby did, Bobby is easy to talk to funny and didn’t come across as overpowering/ controlling as some photographers do!

Bobby had the attitude of it’s your wedding you have and do what you like but also gave amazing ideas and suggestions for photos!

The photos are amazing I’ve had lots of people messaging me asking me for the links to see all the photos as the day and this is all down to Bobby and his amazing photography skills,

All my guests said how funny Bobby was and he was easy to get along with.

Thank you so so much for making our day so special will be a day we never forget!

Highly recommended!!

Bobby is an excellent photographer. He has a keen eye to get the best photos. Our wedding day was captured just as we wanted it to. The photos and video gave us the chance to relief the day over. Every key moment was pictured perfectly with Bobby just getting on with it.
Our photos were different then the standard wedding photos you see. Taken in the best light, showing smiles and laughter and more importantly we're natural. We love our photos. I can highly recommend Bobby for any of your photo needs. He is great to work with.
