Hello! I’m Phil

Authentic + genuine moments creatively captured.

I love to capture exciting and energetic weddings with fun loving couples. It is all about the moments of your wedding: Capturing the laughter, the tears, dad’s first glance of his daughter and the guests hitting the dance floor.

I pride myself on my ability to ‘blend in with the crowd’. I want to be seen as a guest. This is something a lot of past couples have commented on. I love to sit in the sidelines and capture the essence of your day. I enjoy having a laugh and would describe my style as relaxed and documentary. I love style and something ‘a bit different’. It’s my job to make sure I capture these elements for you.

When I'm not behind the lens, you'll find me paddle

boarding or wild swimming at home in Whitley Bay or

travelling the Uk, Europe in our Motorhome, with

my amazing wife and two children.

This is one of the reasons, I limit myself to shoot around 20 weddings each year.

Life is an adventure

Client thoughts

"An Indian wedding is the most amazing, beautiful and chaotic event you can imagine. Hundreds of guests all looking stunning and a colourful ceremony. Our day was perfect in every way, beyond our expectations.

Phil can coax smiles out of sisters and grins out of grannies. He’ll work tirelessly throughout the day blending seamlessly into the background. Our families felt completely relaxed with Phil and he always listened to what we wanted.”

Phil shot some engagement photos for us, and recently our wedding. In both instances, Phil was very friendly and charismatic, while remaining professional. From the outcome of the engagement shoot, Phil learned the style of photographs that we liked, and clearly applied these learnings to the set-up he was using for our wedding day. He is a master of capturing candour, while also tweaking small details to make the shot the best that it can be.
On the wedding day, Phil was charming to the guests while also controlling photo-related situations. He allowed family members to get their own snaps of his set-ups, but wasn't afraid to politely ask guests to move to the side if they were interrupting shots.
After the pre-agreed photo-list was completed, Phil stayed for several hours capturing candids of the party, which we cannot wait to see!
He also worked excellently with our videographer, whom he'd never worked with, to make sure that there was a good amount of time allocated to capturing both photos and videos.

I cannot recommend Phil highly enough. He's professional, attentive to your needs/wants, and a sound guy to boot!

"When I met Phil we immediately hit it off. His work speaks for itself but his friendly and fun personality was great. We booked Phil immediately and I think it was probably the easiest and best decision of the wedding.

The whole day was fantastic, the greatest of our lives and we are so pleased that Phil was there to capture it for us. It was a pleasure to get to know Phil and see a master at work. Capturing the day is so important so we can remember the best day ever. We have only had 1 teaser photo at the moment which was breath-taking and now we are excited to see the rest.

I can’t recommend Phil enough. If you want your perfect wedding day then you need to book this perfect photographer."
