“We wanted to send a massive massive thank you for our amazing wedding photos. It’s such an important role in any wedding, to capture the spirit and emotion while not being noticeable. You achieved this while delivering us some of the best photos I have ever seen. We are so happy with the results, the only problem will be deciding which ones to print, simply too many great moments captured! You were very professional but also lots of fun and very easy going – perfect to blend in with the manic wedding party! Also the pre-shoot is such a great idea, really helped getting to know you beforehand. I would recommend you 100% to anyone needing great photographs while not feeling like you are being “snapped” all the time. Thanks so much”.

Hi, I’m Simon Gilbert- a professional full time Devon wedding photographer. I’m based near Exeter and work mostly in the South West, although I’m happy to travel anywhere for the right wedding!
For almost all of the wedding day I work in a style that you may know as reportage, documentary or photojournalistic- I work unobtrusively and without directing you, using my skills of composition and use of natural light to capture beautiful moments as they unfold. I also suggest allowing a small amount of time for family group shots and some beautiful Bride and Groom portraits. Because I specialise in telling the story of the whole day and so my coverage starts with Bridal prep and continues well into the evening party. I love what I do and feel privileged to make my living photographing so much beautiful emotion!
