My Wedding Photography Style

I love capturing the real moments of your wedding day, from the laughter and tears to the dancing and speeches. My style is unposed and candid, so you can all relax and simply be yourselves. For the Bride and Groom shots, I'll get you to say things, or do things, that will make you both giggle and laugh. This is how I'll help you to create natural looking memories that you'll all cherish forever.

I love capturing those perfect moments that only last a split second. I capture warm, heartfelt photos (no false smiles).

What kind of person am I?

Two of my recent couples have said I must say on this page what I'm like on the day and how I make them all feel. So, here we go...

I love being a wedding photographer. It's the best job in the world! I get to spend my days capturing the most important moments of people's lives, and I get to do it with a smile on my face, all day long!

I believe that the best wedding photos are the ones that are natural and unposed. That's why I focus on capturing the real moments of your day, from the laughter to the tears. People often don't even know I've taken their photo. It's a natural smile that's been frozen in time. I want you and your guests to be able to relax and be yourselves in front of the camera, so that I can capture the true essence of the day.

I've been a wedding photographer for over 4 years, and I've had the privilege of capturing the weddings of many couples. I'm confident that I can capture your wedding day in a way that you'll cherish for years to come.

Here is what two of the couples have said themselves:


Honestly, the day felt a lot more complete with him around! He was so funny, spirited, and personable, he put everyone at ease. We shot at a location he's never been to before and he managed to get STUNNING shots. The lighting he does is beyond amazing. Our friends and family cannot stop raving about our wedding photos. Working with Simon was beyond what we imagined or hoped for our day. We cannot recommend him enough to anyone considering him for wedding photography (or any other photography really). If we could get married again just to have Simon for more time, we totally would! - Kasia


On top of having such an amazing talent, Simon was joyful, attentive, and lovely on the day, and truly added to the occasion as a whole. My relatives and I can not stop boasting about how truly fantastic Simon is. Simon also was lovely to communicate with before and after the wedding, and sent our wedding photos over very promptly. If you are debating hiring Simon or looking for a solid wedding photographer, go with Simon, you will not regret it, I promise! - Christine


Even a wedding car chauffeur sent me this email out of the blue...

Morning Simon, Gary here, the driver with Barker yesterday… Simon , I’ve done quite a lot of Weddings and you’ve been the most energetic photographer yet , keeping the couple occupied and happy.

Why two photographers (Father & Son) are better than one

William (my Son) has shot many weddings as my second photographer. One third of the delivered photos at these weddings were his. These are shots I would would not have captured because I'd be in a different part of the scene. Don't miss these important candid and alternative ceremony/reception shots. You'll be very happy you had us both!

The best thing about a Father and Son team is we know exactly how each other works and how to tell the very best story of your day through photos. Every single couple have been overjoyed with our happy temperaments and results. Having two angles of important parts of the day, as well as more candids, really enhances your gallery. You'll be VERY happy you booked us both!

Wedding Photo Delivery Timeline

You'll have a handful of (teaser) photos within 12-48 hours.
If you have a June-August Wedding, your photos will be ready within one to two weeks.
Smaller weddings and out-of-season weddings will have their photos delivered within one week.

I spend up to 10 hours a day editing because I really enjoy the editing process. I also limit the amount of weddings I take on each year. This is why you don't wait weeks or months for your photos, compared to most other wedding photographers!

Optional Extras:

I use lighting more and more at weddings so I have much greater lighting control in all scenarios. This is what separates me from natural light only photographers. This is why the lighting on the wedding couple and guests looks so good.


Camera phones are getting really good but they still struggle on certain parts of your special day, as the photo below shows. I want you to be able to print as large as you need. I want your ceremony shots to be as sharp and as least grainy as possible. I want you to have the best photo quality possible. What I want most of all is for your photos to outshine every other persons snap-shot photos on their phones.

Here is a recent wedding and a clear example of why camera phones are not enough...

The initial meeting is only about making sure we are a perfect fit and in-tune with each other. The photos will then have that little extra sparkle and that makes all the difference. If you are looking for a friendly LGBTQ wedding photographer for a gay wedding, please let's have a chat!

I cannot secure your date without a small deposit and signed contract. If you know I am the only wedding photographer you want, I would suggest securing the date as soon as possible. Two thirds of couples book me before meeting up. I would strongly suggest that we have two meetings, either in person or zoom. The first is to get to know each other. The other will be a month before your wedding day to finalise the details. These meetings will help the photos look more natural because you'll know me and my cheery temperament before your big day.

If you get a good feeling about me and my words, please Email or Phone/Whatsapp me on 07828 467 753 and let me capture your memories and dreams.

Simon Day, wedding photographer.

This is your story. Have it captured beautifully.

Hi, I'm Simon and this is my son, William who is my second photographer. We are both super friendly wedding photographers and we're based in Goodrington, Torbay, Devon. We smile all day because we both agree that being a wedding photographer is the best job in the world!

Our smiles are contagious and no-one can help but smile back at us. That's why all the photos look so natural. There are lots of laughs, smiles and hugs that the poor bride and groom always miss. We both love securing those moments, as well as the formal shots.

Moments pass, memories fade but with photographs that show real moments, you will always remember the emotions of the day.

Whatever you need, let's talk and see if we can create your vision through our lenses. For your piece of mind, I hold an enhanced DBS/CRB certificate and I have full public liability insurance.

Happy Wedding Clients…

"Simon and William were an amazing addition to our wedding and were a perfect team. They made us, my friends and family laugh all day and the photos are absolutely stunning. He's brought tears to my eyes with the emotions he captured, can't praise them enough and highly recommend them to every bride and groom out there."
Laura and Tom, July 2023
