Mother and grandmother of the bride help bride with her veil at The Westin Riverwalk in San Antonio Texas - WPJA Award winning image

New York City and beyond

Hi. I’m Philip, an Englishman based in San Antonio and a documentary wedding photographer available to travel to the state of New York.

Primarily I anticipate the moment; forget couples jumping in the air with balloons, those type of images to me are clichés and already, out of date trends.

As a former newspaper photographer, I use my experience and tools of a photojournalist. I’m an unobtrusive documentary photographer telling your story with heart and soul. Most of what I capture is with available light, not just as a style but as a philosophy of shooting.

By taking images in available light, I will record the essence of your day, authentically, beautifully and of course, the real moments.

6500 USD
