Wedding Photographer Cambridge
Your wedding is about you, not the photographer.
Hi, my name is Pete, and I’m a wedding photographer based in Cambridge. I’ve lived here most of my life, but I love to travel, either for work or pleasure.
Weddings are the best event to photograph. Everyone is in a great mood, and it is an immense honour to have been asked to shoot such a wide variety over the years. I also work as a photography teacher, which is the perfect reason to talk about photography and use cameras every day.
Your wedding is immensely important, and you want to have a unique, wonderful record of your day. With my wedding photography that is one thing that you won’t need to worry about. I prefer to be discreet – except when you want me to be around, for instance with group shots. People comment on how they barely noticed me (and more importantly, my camera), which is how I go about capturing candid, beautiful, real moments. I don’t dress up my photos with rose-tinted glasses – I feel that photos should look, well, photorealistic! I’m not convinced people will always want their images to look like an Instagram album, with quirky blurring and strange colour washes. The colours of your wedding will shine without the use of a filter.
I’m happy to photograph for as long as you want me to, from preparations in the morning, right through to the first dance and all the funky dance moves after that. Every wedding is unique and I like to think my work reflects that. I’m surprised by how common it is for wedding photographers to prioritise formal portraits, which results in them having an element of control over your day, and a formulaic set of images as the result.
I also create bespoke wedding albums that offer real value for money. Most photographers send your photos off to a company, which in return offer limited pages and not many prints for an eye-watering cost. My albums contain at least 100 pages and 150 images. And what’s more, you can choose the colours, text and detailing – all of which is printed on the best paper and bound using a local bookbinders in Cambridge.
