*2023 & 2022 HITCHED WEDDING AWARD WINNER*

ABOUT ME

I love telling stories and capturing moments you will not want to forget. I bring this into my wedding photography and let it tell the story of the day.

Don't worry if you're not comfortable having a camera in front of your face. I regularly book clients who have not had professional photography before, and help to create a calm and low-pressured wedding day by blending into the background - to compliment, not disrupt your special day.

Every client receives a free complimentary shoot to break the ice and make taking wedding photos easier on the day - as well to get a lovely set of engagement photos

My approach is flexible and adaptable to client needs. I have captured Hindu, Islamic, Christian, registrar, and secular weddings.

For more information drop me an email on contact@philphotos.co.uk and I'll send you my brochure.

Simply Wonderful

Phil was simply amazing as our wedding photographer. He was very communicative, friendly and flexible. He scheduled a pre-wedding shoot (as we had never been photographed professionally before) to meet up in our local area, take a few snaps and have a chat about expectations for the day. This worked great for us and really prepared us for the day itself. In terms of photos, the service we got was exactly what we asked for and more. Moreover, he was flexible with his end-timings and stayed on for longer at the event ad-hoc to cover more of the reception. He was a delight to have at the wedding and got along great with the other guests! Would heartily recommend to anyone!

Brilliant service, would recommend and would use Phil again

Phil was brilliant in capturing the special moments for me and my partner. Very responsive, Phil was great in putting us at ease and capturing some great shots and the pre-wedding shoot was a fantastic way to build a rapport. I don't intend on getting married again - but if I were to, I wouldn't hesitate in getting Phil to be my photographer.

An amazing photographer!

Phil was the most easygoing and friendly photographer and we’re so glad we found him to take photos of our big day! We found him via Hitched and instantly loved his portfolio of other weddings, they were natural, elegant and really beautiful and we wanted a similar style to what we saw. He made our friends and family feel at ease as well as us! We have a member of our family who doesn’t like their photo taken and she seemed to be up for photos by the end of the ceremony which was a huge surprise to us. He is just amazing and an absolute gem! The photos we received were absolutely outstanding and more beautiful than I imagined. Thankyou SO much Phil for being so wonderful. I would highly recommend him as a photographer!

Excellent service

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer. Phil was polite, punctual, professional, and produced perfect pictures. He worked with us to ensure that we captured the exact moments we wanted throughout our day, and even helped us to pose for couples photos midway through the reception.

He had an impressive turnaround time, sending over an expertly-crafted website that displayed the photos in a beautiful format, ready to share with the guests. We would recommend Phil in a heartbeat to anyone looking to make their day extra special.

Friendly, smooth service with great candid shots of our day

We had limited opportunity to meet/communicate with Phil leading up to our wedding due to ongoing illness, and he still managed to capture the essence of our day through great candid shots. Highly recommend if you're looking for documentary-style photography!

Excellent photographer - highly recommended

Phil photographed our small wedding ceremony in Hackney Town Hall. It was an intimate ceremony with only our parents in attendance.

Phil was great to deal with from start to finish. He listened and was careful to bear in mind our requests. Phil has a really calm, easy manner; ensuring we got all the photos we wanted without anyone feeling rushed or pressured.

Our photos were delivered within about 2 weeks and we are really pleased with the results. We would definitely recommend Phil to anyone looking for a wedding or engagement photographer.

Perfect from start to finish

We hired Phil to photograph our small wedding on 4th July. We couldn’t be happier with the results. Phil is really helpful with guiding people and making them feel relaxed. Definitely hire him if you want lovely natural looking photos!

Amazing wedding photographer- absolutely ideal for us!

Phil was absolutely brilliant and the ideal photographer for our wedding. He understood what we wanted and captured that in a friendly, cheerful, unobtrusive and trustworthy manner. We love the photos he captured and these will be happy memories for us to always look back on. We chose Phil because of his friendly, approachable demeanour online and our instinct was right because he was all these things. We found many photographers online off-putting because they were so serious & seemed way too formal, but not Phil. Phil has a sense of humour too and our families commented on the day and later that he was excellent. He communicated with us loads before the wedding and had processes in place to understand what we were looking for. If you're looking for a friendly wedding photographer who will deliver some excellent photos in good spirits, then I really rate Phil. Thank you so much Phil, we are very grateful for your work.

Superb service all round

We enquired with a few photographers here and most replied with ridiculous and expensive "package" prices before we'd even said what we were looking for.
Phil responded with the tone of "what would you like" and correspondence was superb up to the big day.
His photo skills are fantastic and he seamlessly called away myself and wife plus others for more personal photos without disrupting the day.
Several guests also commented what a friendly and professional photographer too.
Highly recommended.
