About

Price from £899

Hi! I’m Neil. I love coffee, travelling, gifs and using the word awesome too much.

I’m also a wedding photographer, with a natural, relaxed style based in the vibrant city of Sheffield and covering weddings across the country.

My wedding photography style is laid back, relaxed and natural. I help take stress away, I wont add to it. You can expect me to capture all the beautiful and fleeting moments that you dont get a chance to see on the day, so that you can get on with enjoying your wedding.

Couples that book me value good, natural photography, and the last thing they want is a boring photographer who makes them pose all day and takes over their wedding day.

My favourite part of the wedding day is the chilled in between bits, the vows, the party, the food ;) - pretty much the whole damn day. I love all of it.

My enjoyment of people watching is what got me into wedding photography and gives me a real advantage with the natural, documentary style of images. I’ve been a wedding photographer for 10 years and its true what they say “find something you love to do and you’ll never work another day in your life” – well, apart from when a global pandemic hits anyway, because that just sucks!

Genuinely, the greatest thing about my job is being there of one the best days in peoples lives and watching people laughing, crying, drinking, falling over and generally having an absolutely awesome day.

I live in a normal boring house in one of the old mining villages on the outskirts of the city with awesome countryside walks and bike rides on my doorstep.

I am married and have been for the last 10 years - helpful tip if you have left it all to the last minute – we booked, organised and held our wedding within four months of eventually deciding to do it and it was brilliant so don’t get too stressed if you don’t have three years to plan it!

We have 4 children, a very loveable but short on braincells Golden Labrador, a cat with the loudest most persistent meow in the world and two guinea pigs called Buzz and Woody who sound like they have squeaky dog toys stuck in their mouths!.

If you are not too hung up on all the formalities, traditions or having all the material “things" and you just want to have an amazing time with your favourite people and your IG isnt full of bathroom selfies...... and you like the way of how I do things then drop me a message and lets see if I'm free on your date.

Speak to you soon.

Neil

    Superb photographer

    Neil was fantastic at our wedding, since the day all of my guests have said how brilliant they thought Neil was and the way in which the photos were taken ( in different parts of the hotel) . The process to book and pay is very straight forward.
    Neil made my guests feel at ease and he captured all the moments I wanted for my photographs. He kept in contact with us throughout the planning and worked with us even in the hardest of times (our wedding date changed three times) couldn’t have asked for a better photographer!

    Fantastic Friendly Professional Experience

    Choosing a photographer for your big day is one of the big pieces to the puzzle, however from the moment we decided to go with Neil, I felt a massive weight lifted.

    From our first meeting, I knew we had made a great choice. He is an amazing photographer, professional yet very friendly. He listened to exactly what we wanted and we were on the same page throughout the whole process. He arranged a venue visit which was great and gave us the opportunity to plan where we wanted our photos taking.

    On the day he brought an additional photographer to help out so nothing would be missed. Both were great and blended in so you didn't even know they were there half the time. We had them with us from the morning right through to the first dance, and it was a shame to see them leave.

    Neil kept in touch after the event, right up until we received our beautiful USB with our pictures. A gorgeous framed print was also provided, which we still have standing on our mantel 4 years later.

    Planning a wedding and sourcing all the different people involved can be a minefield, but if you are looking for a relaxed and professional experience from the start, choose Type 1 Photography

    Practical, pleasant guy with excellent experience

    Neil spent a load of time with us finding out how we wanted things to go, and then executed everything perfectly whilst managing to blend into the background and get some fantastic natural shots that we could have never imagined. His ideas are spot on, and he's a really pleasant guy. We had a terrible family situation that caused us to bring the wedding forward by 6 months and he simply obliged without any fuss, and produced better photos than we ever could have imagined, at a competitive price that is really good value. Top bloke.

    Neil captured our day brilliantly!

    We got married in November 2019 in Nottingham. We took the opportunity to meet up with Neil a few weeks before the wedding, and he's really easy going, yet organised, and he was flexible with what we wanted for our day. He asked for groups of names we wanted family photos with after the ceremony in advance, to make the 'formal' photo process as quick as possible. We were really happy with our photos, having a nice combination of natural photos and some more 'arty' ones. We especially got a lot of compliments from guests about the natural and funny moments that had been captured.

    Really made us feel comfortable

    I cannot begin to describe how much I hate having my photo taken. I almost considered not having a photographer at all! After our first meeting with Neil, he completely put me at ease. He listened to our thoughts about the style of photos we wanted and assured me that I wasn't going to have to spend the whole wedding day posing awkwardly for pictures.
    The photos were on our doorstep before returned from our honeymoon and we were thrilled with all of them!
    I would definitely recommend Type1 Photography with no reservations whatsoever!

    Stunning photos and such a lovely chap.

    We felt so lucky to have had Neil to have captured our special day. The photos were absolutely amazing. ...he's so talented.
    Neil invested so much enthusiasm, warmth and interest in our guests and our wedding day that he soon becomes a friend who happens to take THE best photos, but never intrusive. He truly enjoys his job and it shows. Such a lovely chap to have around.
    Don't hesitate. You won't be disappointed.

    Exactly what we wanted.

    Neil was great and so professional. He took the type of pictures we wanted and kept and eye on the rainy weather to make sure we took advantage of the drier moments! Be clear in your head about the particular photos you want to take away from the day and he will deliver!

    So chilled

    Neil was amazing. He spent the whole day with us and never stopped smiling. He calmed me down when I got wound up about something silly, helped sort things out and still had time to take amazing pictures!
    Seriously nice guy, complete professional and so glad we found him. Everyone loved him and I know one of my bridesmaids is now booking him for his dancing party photos alone! xxx

    Neil is an absolutely brilliant photographer.
    A proper professional and was brilliant with all the guests. The kids loved him especially and can't wait to see their pics.
    I consider myself lucky to have had him as my photographer and I recommend him to anyone. He has an artistic eye that I as a photographer myself am jealous of. First class!

    We couldn't be happier with the photos Neil took at our wedding in July.
    He captured the day perfectly from start to finish and the photos we have really tell the story of all of the amazing moments of the day.
    The photos have a truly natural style and encapsulate each part of our wedding perfectly. From laughter, love and tender moments to all the fun of the party, we have photos to look back on that will make us smile for years to come!
