"Winner of the Hitched Wedding Photography Awards 2024"

Hello, I'm Lewis, a lover of photography, gaming, hearty roast dinners, and the wonders of the great outdoors. (Planning a mountain wedding? Count me in! ) I've been capturing love stories since 2015 (can you believe it?), with the chance to snap moments in my hometown of Northamptonshire, all over the UK, and even across the globe! (Shooting a wedding in Mexico & Cyprus is a memory I will never forget!)

Along this incredible journey, I've met some amazing souls, and I genuinely adore what I do. Over the years, I've carved out a reputation for making couples feel at ease, charming the pants off parents, and blending in like a friend rather than just a photographer at weddings. If you're on the lookout for a photographer who vibes with the moment instead of taking over, then drop me a message today!

"Lewis knows exactly what will look great without making you feel uncomfortable. He’s up for a laugh but will absolutely match your vibe if you’re not quite as bonkers as me and my wife. As an ex-wedding photographer myself (something I didn’t disclose to Lewis) I can only say he is absolutely one of the best. Thank you, Lewis! We’ll have you back for any of our big life events in the future. An absolute legend!" - Heidi & Aidan

  • Award-winning photography, specialising in capturing your day in the most natural way possible, with a few creative portraits thrown into the mix (No cheesy posing here, that's a promise!)

"Would 100% recommend Lewis to anyone thinking of hiring him to photograph their wedding. He is so down to earth, made us feel completely at ease and it was like having a mate taking photos of our special day!" - Maria & Shane

I have captured well over 150 weddings, and have built up a reputation over the years for putting everyone at ease, allowing you to celebrate your day to the max. I’m all about capturing the love, laughter, and everything in between. My goal is to give you photographs that will transport you right back to how your day felt.

Posing, I don’t go big on posing, and I won’t take you away from your wedding for hours. I understand you want to spend as much time with your loved ones as possible. At some point though, you’ll want a few creative photographs of the two of you. (No cheesy posing here, and that's a promise!) But rest assured, these will not take long at all, giving you more time with your nearest and dearest.

For the majority of your day, I’ll be there capturing everything as it unfolds naturally. I aim to provide you with photographs that are honest, authentic, and truly reflective of your day.

Incredibly talented and friendly photographer

We came across Lewis on the Hitched website and immediately felt he would be a good fit to capture our wedding – and we weren’t wrong. From the first consultation, he was really clear about his photography style and what we could expect from his services; and the final consultation a few weeks prior to the wedding really reassured me that he would capture all of the essential moments.
On the wedding morning, Lewis met me and my bridesmaids at our hotel to capture us getting ready – his energy levels were contagious and really got us in the spirit of celebration. Despite the room being very full with me, six bridesmaids and three stylists, Lewis was able to seamlessly work around everyone to ensure the morning was well documented. He moved across to the venue with us shortly afterwards and continued to catch all the special moments – a first look with my parents, gifts, getting ready. He was also more than happy to capture some of the ‘sillier’ requests from my sister and I.
Lewis stayed with us for the rest of the day, until around 9pm – he somehow managed to be everywhere without us even noticing he was there, but based on the previews, I’m confident he has captured so many special moments. One of our guests even came up to me an extatically exclaimed ‘your photographer is everywhere, it’s great!’. The portrait previews we have seen are absolutely stunning – not only did we get some beautiful photos during and after the ceremony, Lewis was always on the look out for more opportunities for a good photo, and he even spotted a brief moment where the sky looked on fire at sunset, and quickly got us outside for a photo opportunity that I had wished for, but didn’t think I’d get with it being a cloudy day – so massive props to him for that!
I’m so incredibly happy that we found Lewis – his photos capture the emotion in every little moment and every image is the perfect reflection of the love and happiness we felt on the day. I shall treasure these photos forever, and can’t thank him enough for the wonderful job he did documenting our special day.

Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!

Lewis did an amazing job for our LOTR themed wedding. Such a nice guy. Everyone loved him. Had a laugh as well which is nice. He captured such lovely photos that would have been missed if we didn't have him. You can see he's so passionate about what he does which is so great. He did an excellent job of getting through all of our requested photo's list plus our couples pictures all before the wedding breakfast was due!
It was an absolute pleasure working with you :)

Amazing photographer!!!

Lewis was simply amazing. He was the first photographer we called, and after speaking with him we knew we didn't really need to talk to anyone else. We obviously liked his portfolio enough to call him, and we don't regret the decision.

We got married on the 6th of January 2024, and Lewis was a very reassuring presence during the whole day. His pictures were amazing 😍

Thank you Lewis for your help!

Amazing Phrographer!

I couldn’t praise Lewis enough, thanks for the amazing photos, and for making us and our guests feel so at ease, we love how you just slotted in and have taken some amazing unplanned (as well as planned) photos. An amazing addition to our day!

Perfect Wedding Photographer

We cannot recommend Lewis enough! He was the photographer at our wedding day and we are so pleased with all our photos. Not only that but also how pleasant he was with everyone on the day, he made everyone feel comfortable and just felt like he was part of the wedding party. From the first correspondence Lewis was easy to contact always quick to respond, he was always helpful answering any queries and addressing any concerns, he was open to our ideas and the utmost professional. All our wedding guests have commented on how much they liked Lewis and how good of a photographer he is.
Lewis was also creative with his photography, capturing the traditional photos but also fun, different photos which we loved.

The BEST Wedding Photographer!

Would 100% recommend Lewis to anyone thinking of hiring him to photograph their wedding. He is so down to earth, made us feel completely at ease and it was like having a mate taking photos of our special day! The highlights we've had so far have been perfect, couldn't be happier with them. Definitely our favourite supplier and best decision we made in all the wedding planning :)

The perfect day

We could not recommend Lewis highly enough! Communication with us was great from the beginning, a very lovely person to work with. He made our already perfect wedding day even better, he put us at ease and was so easy to work with.

Fantastic Photographs

We had Lewis take the photos for our wedding July 2021

He was amazing throughout
In the lead up he took time to answer all our questions and had a pre-wedding photo-shoot with us
On the day itself he was excellent - he took the group photos we had asked and was always on his feet taking photos while remaining inconspicuous. He suggested some stunning shots for us (e.g. Sunset shots, ones in the church grounds) which came out so well
When we saw the final photos we were amazed. They were stunning and he has a great talent for taking natural photos of people that really captured the day

We have shown the photos to all the guests and they love them too

Highly recommend

Beci and Charlie’s wedding, Park Farm

Lewis Arrived on time. He was friendly and professional at all times. He had a lot of group shots to do and worked well with the Bride and Groom and guests to achieve some great shots as well as taking ad hoc photos. I Would recommend him. Thank you for creating some wonderful photos from an amazing day.

Not only a great photographer but a great personality

Lewis really captured our special day, The day went so smoothly and Lewis was there for every special moment, it did not feel like we had a photographer there at all but felt like a guest he was great with everyone, with multiple people complimenting how good he was on the day, Lewis done a fantastic job of keeping myself and the bride informed of when the lighting was good to get a great photo without any pressure, all in all I want to say a great big thank you to Lewis for being at the wedding and doing an even better job of capturing every moment of our wedding
