Hey there, I'm Terry, the lead photographer for Lily & White Photography. I'm based in Essex, but I Love travelling everywhere in the UK to capture weddings. I'm a Husband and Dad to my beautiful wife & three awesome kids. When I'm not shooting weddings, I'm either editing beautiful weddings, doing the cleaning (just in case my wife is reading this), walking our two crazy dogs, or spending as much time with family as possible...Oh, and drinking coffee - I love a mug or two or three!
I'm not a huge lover of posing - for the most part, my couples aren't models and probably don't have any desire to be either. I love to keep things as natural as possible, inject some of my wild humour (totally subjective of course), and create emotionally driven images. The great thing about me is I don't even take my couples away for hours on end - I want you to enjoy your day and have fun as intended!
"The best photographer! We just got married on April 15th 2023, at Ye Olde Plough House and had the most amazing day, literally, Terry had us laughing all day, he even ended up doing up my dress-sorry Tel, but this is such a funny memory for me, you did a great job haha - So professional and organised and knows exactly what to capture!"

The best wedding photographer ever!!
Thank you so much Terry!
Outstanding, couldn’t recommend enough!!
We booked an engagement session the year before which was a great way to get comfortable as well as capture some amazing memories in the run up. I highly recommend booking this if you are able too.
On the day Tel and Darren were both early and made everyone feel at ease capturing the morning perfectly and they went massively above and beyond what was expected and we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
We really put them to work with bride/groom prep, running down to my grans nursing home for a few photos, 35 group shots, couple photos, smoke bomb shots, bubble shot, golden hour, bridal/grooms party shots, night time shots and all the normal ceremony & reception photos.
They nailed it! Every moment was captured perfectly and the photos are absolutely stunning!
1000% recommend Lily & White photography, you will not be disappointed!
Massive thank you to Tel & Darren!
Amazing photographer THE BEST!
So professional and organised and knows exactly what to capture. Leading up to our big day he regularly kept in touch, had a zoom call the week before our big day to ask us what we wanted to capture and explained how our day would run.
Made us feel so relaxed which made the day spent with him so much fun. If your honestly looking for the best photographer Tel is your man! I took nearly a year searching and I'm so glad that I choose Terry and took my time.
Received our sneak peek photos back the day after our wedding and omg I was blown away with them. Absolutely beautiful. I'm really excited to receive the full package in the coming weeks. Choose the right photographer because these are the memories you keep forever and you will not be disappointed with Terrys work. I also booked Darren through Terry to do our video photography and brought as a package who was also amazing and together they are literally brilliant and highly hilarious together.
Honestly so overwhelmed with them I cried the first time I saw my sneak peek pics. Tel thank you so much your the BEST!
A great snapshot of our wedding day
The photos he took at the wedding from myself and bridesmaids getting ready, to the ceremony, couple shots and reception photos are amazing and something I can look back on and smile. Every aspect of our wedding day was covered through Terry and brings back perfect memories that we will cherish!
Thank you Terry!
Great Photographer - highly recommend!
When we first started looking for a photographer a year or so before our wedding, there were so many options, and it quite was overwhelming – particularly as photos are so important for remembering your day for years after but are also one of the biggest expenses of the day. After viewing the website and confirming that we liked the style of photos offered, we contacted Terry along with a few others in the area for more information.
Terry stood out from the beginning as he replied promptly with all the information we needed, and everything was dealt with in such a professional but friendly way. We found Terry to be very easy to speak to and he answered any questions that we had, without being pushy. We liked his style of photos, the vibe we got from him, and his prices were comparable to others, and so we booked him for our wedding. We also decided to book an engagement shoot as an opportunity to meet before the wedding and to try and feel comfortable in front of the camera – something that I often am not!
On the day of the engagement shoot, we met as arranged and were instantly put at ease as Terry is such a friendly guy and his way of working is so natural and not overly staged – it felt more like meeting up with a mate as it was so relaxed, which we liked. He has a good eye for detail and what will bring something a bit extra to the photos and the shoot was a lot of fun – and the photos turned out great!
In the lead up to the wedding, Terry kept in touch and made sure he knew all the timings and what we wanted for the day, and he arrived exactly as arranged on the wedding day.
Terry managed to fit in so well with a room full of women getting ready and everyone felt comfortable with him around. He managed to find photo opportunities that I would not have even thought of and between him and the videographer I feel that they kept the whole process of getting ready on schedule and were implemental in ensuring everyone was where they were meant to be at the correct times! I don’t think the morning would have gone anywhere near as smoothly without them being there!
Other than the list of ‘staged’ photos that all weddings have (and which had been discussed with him beforehand), and a few specific requests, we just let Terry get on with it and had full trust in him to capture our day. We did go for a few short walks with him at different points in the day to get photo opportunities, and these were always well timed and ‘if we wanted to’ and so there was no pressure.
Terry just blended into the day seamlessly and half of the time I forgot he was even there and that we were being photographed! Throughout the day and many times since, we have had comments on how great he was and how well he fit in.
The very next day we received a ‘sneak peak’ of our pictures which were amazing and made us very excited to receive the rest. A few weeks later we got them and we were both so pleased with how they came out – he got all the main parts of the day, plus so much more, and captured many moments that we had not known about and special guests also, we are so pleased and the photos really did bring back the day. Terry offers all photos in both colour and black and white and that contrast often brings a whole new dimension to the pictures.
Basically, Terry is a great guy, and a great photographer and we would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a photographer that is professional but also able to fit in and put others at ease! His work is amazing, and we are so pleased we booked him. The only problem we now have is deciding on our favourite pictures to display and whether we want them in full colour or black and white!
Tel is your man
If you’re looking for a wedding photographer, Tel is your man. You will not be disappointed.
An Absolutely Amazing Photographer!
Outstanding and Magical
Amazing!! Super fun, organised and captured the best shots!
Couldn't have done it without him!
Terry was absolutely faultless from start to finish in capturing our day.
He was so creative in making sure we had captured the perfect shots.
Nothing was too much trouble for him and was always thinking of how to make the moments so special.
Not only this, but, he also made us feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the day and therefore we felt that nothing was staged.
On top of this, Terry is such a wonderful man and someone who we instantly clicked with who also made our guests feel really special.
Absolute top quality and couldn’t rate him highly enough.
An Obvious Choice
5 stars all around are more than well deserved. Thank you so much Terry.
You won't regret choosing Tel!

Meet the Team
I simply love photographing weddings! Creating moments of soulful emotion is what I do.
I'm a laid back & cool guy, even at the tender age of 45! Refusing to grow up is what keeps me young (at least in mind haha).
I love first and foremost my family, they are the inspiration for all that I do. I am an epic Game of Thrones fan and cannot wait till season 8 - House Stark all the way!
I love my coffee too & I also love copious amounts of disarano & coke, when I'm not working that is!
By the way, that headshot in my profile pic? Taken by my 15 year old Son, who can often be seen with me at weddings assisting. Chip off the block that one!
