Welcome to Lee Hawley Photography

This is not formal wedding photography – I tell your wedding story naturally and creatively. No awkward poses, no saying cheese & no taking you away from your guests for hours. My goal is for you to feel like you have a friend as your photographer. By doing that I capture you at your most you, and create genuinely personal images.

To do something I love so much for a living is a true gift. I believe my enthusiasm and energy will rub off on you within a short chat, and make you genuinely excited about me telling your wedding story.

The way he captured moments was really magical!

If we could give Lee 10* we would! I remember sitting at my friends house looking for a wedding photographer and stumbles across Lee on google, he had a video on his website and it made me tear up! The way he captured moments was really magical. I messaged him straight away and had my heart set on him being our wedding photographer. He replied to my email very quickly and with a very friendly and professional response. His prices and packages were really good, offering something for everyone! We exchanged quite a few emails discussing dates and other details. Lee then offered to come out and meet Derry and I. This confirmed to me he was definitely the photographer for us, so we booked him for our day! As part of our package we got an engagement shoot that put me at ease as I’m not ‘a natural’ when it comes to be photographed. The pictures were amazing and we were both so pleased and couldn’t wait for the big day! Finally the wedding day arrived and Lee arrived promptly and came up to see us as we were getting ready, he has a natural ability to make himself feel like everyone’s friend whilst almost not even being in the room! Several of the shots I was amazed at as I hadn’t even realised he was there getting them! Throughout the whole day he was amazing, coming up with cool ideas for shots whilst making friends with everyone! I couldn’t even count how many people said how lovely he was. Anyway.. later that evening we already had several amazing images sent to us! We couldn’t wait to see more but thought it would be a week or two! Nope! Lee had all our photos with us within 3 days!! We couldn’t stop smiling as we looked through them all, after sharing them with our friends and family everyone was so happy with all the images! We really can’t thank you enough for capturing our day the way you did. It means we will always have so many of the amazing moments captured! I just hope that we get to come to some more weddings where you’re the photographer so we can get a few more shots haha! But on a serious note you did a fantastic job and we couldn’t rate you more highly!

Absolutely Incredible

We recently had the honour of Lee as our photographer at our wedding and he is absolutely incredible. Lee has been brilliant from start to finish. He is very professional, creative, efficient and extremely easy to get along with. It is clear he is very passionate about what he does.

On the day of our wedding Lee was very discreet and he captured every special moment. We are both overwhelmed with the images he has taken and we have received so many comments and compliments from friends and family. Words cannot describe how good Lee is. A picture paints a thousand words and one of our favourites is the photo using a smoke grenade. This is just one example of Lee’s creativity. Lee is a true gentleman, an absolute pleasure to work with and someone I would recommend to anyone without a moment’s hesitation. Lee, thank you for making our day complete and providing us with memories that we will both cherish for the rest of our lives.

Lee is quite simply brilliant!

Lee is quite simply brilliant! He took the most amazing collection of images throughout our wedding day: lovely natural shots of our dear friends and family (many of whom are now using his pictures for their social media profile pics as he has a great knack for capturing the best in people!!); pictures of the tiny details; pictures of the whole happy big group; and some simply stunning shots of us out at sunset that are photographically brilliant- and way beyond our wildest dreams as to what the images for the day could possibly be. We couldn’t have asked for a more magical or memorable record of the day.
Not only that- he’s an all-round lovely human, great on the preparatory communications and super professional throughout. Trust me -you really, really do want to work with him for your wedding! Very, very highly recommended by us both. Tess and John.

to top it all he is a lovely kind-souled being

Lee was absolutely amazing at both of our wedding celebrations that were completely different, from a low key family event in a woodland setting to a 250 guest marquee glitter festival party. He captured the events perfectly and worked tirelessly to be in the right place at the right time over and over again! We couldn’t recommend him more, and to top it all he is a lovely kind-souled being xxx
