"when we began to plan our own wedding, we knew without considering any other photographers, that we wanted Phil for the job"
Caroline & Pau (Doxford Hall)
"Phil Smith has a unique talent for what he does and we would recommend him whole heartedly in fact I christened him 'The man who is in love, with love'."

Thank you for taking the time to look through my work. For over 8 years now, I have been a full time qualified professional photographer with a BA honors degree. During the first 5 years for my photography career I worked for the biggest portrait brand in the UK, where I went on to be Head Photographer for the Newcastle Studio.
It was during this time, I photographed thousands of couples and families. It is with this experience, whether you’re someone who hates having their photograph taken or enjoys the limelight, that I use to help create memorable moments with friendly and positive direction. This gives your images great expressions, comfortable body language, which creates a fun and relaxed feel to the images.
I have been shooting weddings for a number of years now and I am very passion about it: Documenting real emotion: Using and manipulating natural light: My aim is to capture your story in a beautiful and creative way.
Please click on the images at the bottom of this page for examples of full weddings; it is easy to take 4 or 5 great pictures at each wedding, but it is a different matter taking hundreds of great story telling and unique images at every wedding. My blog and galleries are also a great place to see recent work.
