About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2020

Last update: April 2024

Hi.........Many thanks for stopping by to take a look at my profile here on Hitched.

My name is Adrian Neal. I am the photographer here at The Studio Without Walls a Fearless Photographer award winner and last year placed in the Top Ten List of Wedding Photographers by The UK and Eire Masters of Wedding Photography......... well that is the uncomfortable bragging bit over.....now a bit about my style of photography.

My style of photography is mainly documentary, I really like to take natural, relaxed and fun images that capture the day as it unfolds, perhaps with just a few posed photographs along the way............this seems to work really well for couples who don't feel too comfortable in front of a camera !

I do take the usual group shots if needed but really I want you to enjoy the day with your family and friends without the photography getting in the way too much.

I photographed weddings on film for many years and although I now shoot digitally I like to edit the photos to look like film images with warm skin tones and rich colour tones. I also like to convert your photos into a beautiful classic black and white set to go alongside the colour versions.

Most wedding days are photographed from brides preparations through to the early part of the dancing at the evening reception. Shorter coverage is available however for local weekday weddings.

The photos from the day are supplied on a boxed USB stick and are ready to print or display, there are usually around 500 + images in the final edit. Albums and prints are available too.

An online gallery is included which you can share with your friends and family to relive the wedding day.

Although based in Hertfordshire a lot of the weddings I photograph are a little further from home so travel and accommodation costs are included in the price quoted to save you any concerns with traffic delays on the day.

I have a two minute video on my profile page and lots more photographs and real life wedding galleries on my website which I hope might give you a good idea about my style of photography.

I hope that is helpful, if you would like any more info please do get in touch it would be lovely to hear from you.

An amazing photographer and

Such a brilliant photographer, Adrain arrived so professionally and threw himself into our wedding and made it feel so special. He was fantastic at communicating and so flexible when we had to change our date. The photos were so beautiful from the set photos to the most amazing candid shots. We didn't even notice he was taking the shots, it was magic! Thank you Adrian for capturing our day just like we remember it and more! I would recommend to anyone!!

Amazing pictures of a perfect day!

Adrian was really friendly, very easy to work with and we were absolutely thrilled with the final photos, which arrived very quickly!

Neither of us particularly enjoy having our photo taken, however Adrian made us feel so comfortable during any “staged” shots and we’ve now got some wonderful photos to choose from, the trouble will be choosing our favourites to frame!

Our absolute favourite photos from the gallery were some gorgeous candid ones where you never knew he was there - he really managed to capture the relaxed, fun nature of our day perfectly. We can’t recommend him enough.

Thank you so much, Adrian!

Professionally present but in no way intrusive

Where to start… We are rubbish at posing for pictures but Adrian made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the day allowing for some marvellous photos. Adrian was easy to work with on the day, easy to communicate with in the run up to the day and flexible in how we wanted to approach our day. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer if we tried…..there is not a single picture in our portfolio we don’t like.
Thank you Adrian, we will always be grateful for your presence, your easy manner, and your endless patience, not just with ourselves but also our guests who clearly can’t all look to camera with their eyes open at the same time :)

Amazing photos!

Adrian honestly is so lovely and down to earth and he made everybody feel so at ease having their photos taken on our wedding day.

We loved his documentary style of photos that really captured the special moments and the overall happiness of the day. A lot of the time you didn’t even know he was there taking the snaps! We also had some posed pics which came back equally as beautiful. We are over the moon with the final photos and will treasure them forever!

I would not hesitate to recommend Adrian to anyone planning on getting married!! He really went above and beyond! Thank you so much!

Excellent Photographer, Excellent Person

Hiring Adrian was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. He gave so much attention to getting the best shots and took them in a way where we were comfortable and not overloaded with too much posing! He fit in brilliantly with all our guests and blended in so well- many people thought he was a guest! Adrian is such a nice person and brilliant photographer, every photo we got back was brilliant and there are hundreds. We had a great day and the wedding captures everything we wanted and more, even the stuff that we, as the couple, didn't know was happening. Definitely made the right decision using Adrian and would 100% recommend him to anyone.

Wonderful photographer

Adrian’s attention to detail is outstanding. He is so passionate about his work and it shows through. Oh the day of our wedding he made everyone feel at ease and captured the day perfectly. Adrian’s style was just what we wanted, in the moment and he delivered. We can’t thank him enough for producing high standard amazing quality photographs. The feedback we have had from friends and family has just reassured us that we chose the perfect photographer for our wedding day. Thank you so much Adrian

Amazing Photographer - Amazing Photos!

Having searched though many photographers websites and their albums we could not settle on a photographer that we felt would deliver the natural informal images, as well as the artistic angles with creative use of light. Until we found The Studio Without Walls on Hitched! Adrian was so calm and relaxed, I didn't even notice him a lot of the time while I was busy with my bridesmaids getting ready. Yet he was there to capture so many photos that I didn't even see him taking and they are absolutely stunning shots. He was so polite and friendly, mingling in with our guests and then taking pictures of around our venue that without him we never would of got. The formal photos outside where done with ease and he gathered us together expertly and advised on positioning to deliver some fantastic family photos. The photographs that he took of just us are also stunning. His eye for detail and instructions on how to pose created some fabulous artist modern pictures that we cannot wait to get printed. If you are looking for a photographer that can do all this, book him! you will not be disappointed - Thank you Adrian, Love Mr & Mrs Hardwick xx

Beautifully unique photography

2020 was a weird year to get married. We had changed venues and guest lists several times and ended up with a small intimate affair for both given the circumstances. Having seen Adrian's work on his websites, I was determined to keep him as part of the plan. He did not disappoint. Adrian is a fantastic photographer, he captures natural moments beautifully. I was worried he would find our wedding less fancy than his usual but he captured the beauty within our very small, London affair with an obvious passion. Our guests thought he was amazing and our photos could not have been better. I am so grateful to have found The Studio Without Walls.

Absolutely amazing, and great to deal with

Hi Adrian
We both wanted to thank you massively and how happy we are with your service and how excited we were to see the final results. You really did make us feel at ease with so much direction, and this was a massive help and relief for us. We are truly glad we chose you to capture a big day.

The Best Photographer!

I cannot recommend Adrian enough. I didn't notice him taking photos of us all and I'd turn around and he'd be there capturing the moment. He captured every little moment and did it perfectly, even the posed photos. He made us feel at ease and made sure we had a chuckle and didn't take it all too seriously. Really glad I chose Adrian, communication was excellent throughout as well, can't recommend him enough!!

Wonderful wedding photographer

Adrian is a really wonderful photographer - he understood quickly what my husband and I were looking for from our photos, and absolutely delivered. He joined us early in the day when we were running around getting the space ready (we had quite a DIY wedding), and left just as it was getting dark - in between, he took hundreds of beautiful pictures and even helped carry stuff about when setting up! He also arranged the confetti throwing for us, as we hadn't really planned that. Adrian is incredibly unobtrusive and friendly, and got some beautiful candid pictures of our friends and family. It's been a real treat revisiting our wedding through the online album that he sent, and we can't wait to get the high-res images on USB in the next few days.

Very professional, and felt like one of the family, as Adrian blended in so well. This resulted in absolutely beautiful photos. Just as we dreamt of!

Everything about our experience with Adrian was spot on. From the first point of contact he was polite and professional, and dealt with any queries in a timely fashion.
On our wedding day, he made us all feel so relaxed and blended in so well with our family and friends. We had many lovely comments from our guests about Adrian.
We have just received our wedding pictures. We were so impressed with how quickly we received them. We can't put into words how pleased we are with them. They are just perfect, and reflect just how special our day was. We couldn't have asked for more.

Standing Ovation

Adrian was the photographer we chose for our wedding on 6th June 2021.

There was just something about The Studio
Without Walls that stood out from the others. We made the right decision. Adrian - self assured and calm, making the arrangement process stress free.

On the day of our wedding, all his experience came through, we didn’t have to worry about a thing!
Adrian produced some magical photo shots which we will treasure forever.

Thank you for capturing our special day.

Fantastic Wedding Photographer - Highly Recommended

We had an incredible experience with Adrian and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Not only did Adrian find time to slot us into his busy calendar last minute, but he also guided us through every step of the preparation process and helped us with our own plans to videotape the wedding on the day. He is prompt in all of his responses and will happily work with you to bring your vision to life, even if your plans change (due to COVID restrictions) like us. Moreover, he was incredibly understanding of the challenges presented by COVID and made us and our guests feel safe by maintaining a safe distance throughout the event and wearing a mask at all times.

And the photos Adrian took are fantastic! He captured the day perfectly with the right mix of candid shots and staged photos. With his calm, friendly demeanor he made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera and gave us lots of useful tips for posing in the staged photos.

We received the photos shortly after the wedding, they were well edited and easily accessible. You'll receive both an online link, and a USB drive with all of the photos in color and black and white.

Book Adrian while you can - you will have a wonderful experience with him.
