Wedding Photographer
Based in Torbay, Devon

My Wedding Photography Style

My style is natural, formid (a mixture of formal + candid) and story-telling. Being a wedding photographer is the best job in the World! I smile just as much as everyone else during the day. My passion and smile instantly puts people at ease. This will shine through my photos as these recent weddings will show. Please read my wonderful testimonials to prove beyond doubt that I'm the right choice for you.

I shoot every photo in colour but some just look perfect in black and white. Don't worry though, I supply you with both versions.

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 will be smiling all day because there is no better job in the World than being a wedding photographer. I will get the poses and candid shots through smiles and fun. You will be relaxed because I am relaxed. I can't help but smile and declare how much I love my job when I see the photo I've just taken, knowing how much you'll love it. You cannot help but smile along with me. That is the secret to why my photos look so natural and that's why every single couple has been so happy that I was their wedding photographer. It isn't just the photos, it's also giving your day that extra little bit of sparkle and a lot of extra smiles.


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.

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.


LAST WORDS...

Camera phones are getting really good but they still struggle on certain parts of your special day. 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.


WHAT NEXT?

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 then please let's have a chat!

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 I'm a super friendly wedding photographer based in Goodrington, Torbay, Devon. I smile all day long because being a wedding photographer is the best job in the world!

My smiles are contagious and no-one can help but smile back at me. That's why all my photos look so natural. There are lots of laughs, smiles and hugs that the poor bride and groom nearly always miss. I 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 my lens. For your piece of mind, I hold an enhanced DBS/CRB certificate and I have full public liability insurance.

Also, see my Frequently Asked Questions page for more information. Phone me on 07828 467 753 or Email Me to discuss your needs.

Happy Wedding Clients…

"We spent last night looking through the photos and we're absolutely blown away. The attention to detail is amazing and the ability to capture emotion without it once looking staged or unnatural is seriously impressive. The photos really do highlight your quality of photography but also your passion for the job. All of our guests and suppliers have been raving about the photos too. "
Ryan and Laura, July 2021
