I am Anthony and I am a documentary wedding photographer here in Devon.
I love weddings but I also hate weddings. What do I hate? I hate the jumping shots or the heart-shaped group shots. I am not keen on showing too much detail of table settings and bunting. I am interested in and love the real, fun and emotion of your wedding. I like to document your day as it happens and spend time capturing the moments that matter. If you agree please get in touch because we are on the same page.
So why am I a wedding photographer? Why do I love it so much? I will tell you. I love street photography. It really gets my blood pumping and not only because I love people watching, but it’s exciting, nerve racking and frightening all at the same time. It really makes you feel alive. Anyhow where else can I do this type of photography and get permission to do it. That’s right! You’ve got it in one. Weddings. I am able to people watch and capture it all without anyone blinking an eye. Ha! Fantastic! Love it!
I live in North Devon with my wife, daughter and Timmy our Labrador. We love to take him up on Exmoor for long walks although like every Lab he will eat anything, and I mean anything. He is pretty much controlled by his belly and will do anything for a sausage. I moved to Devon from the midlands in 2000 to study photography at Uni but also to be near the surf, although I surfed more before I moved to Devon. It seemed the closer I got to the sea the less surfing I did. Tragic really! I still have my board and it’s ready to go!
I captured my first wedding in 2002 but did not really enjoy it too much. It was all a little static! There was no movement and I worked to a shot-list. Very boring. Fast-forward a number of years, multiple jobs and child rearing I felt ready to give it another go. I helped out at a wedding and POW I was under the spell. There is so much more movement and bucket loads of creativity. There are so many styles out there. There is something for everyone. I am now solely a documentary wedding photographer. I capture you day as I see it, honest and real. Would you like to see and read more about my approach? Please follow link: Devon documentary wedding photographer.
