North East Wedding Photographer
Simon Hogben Photography
Real Moments // Natural Style
It’s your wedding day and you’re in the spotlight. But what if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t enjoy having your picture taken? Relax. My job as your North East wedding photographer is to capture the joy of the occasion almost without you and your guests noticing. Let’s face it, emotions and personalities speak louder than cheesy smiles and packaged poses.
Your Day // Your Way
Authentic, real, natural… you’ll hear words like these when we talk ahead of your big day and afterwards because my style of wedding photography is documentary. I’m on hand to capture the day the way you’d experience it if you could be there observing yourself and your guests enjoying the day moment by moment. Traditional wedding portraits and family groups? Yes, you can have these too if you want them, (or you know your gran does). They’ll still be relaxed and natural and I’ll make time for these with minimal disruption. No taking you away from your guests for precious hours or turning your wedding into a photoshoot.
