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.

What an absolutely incredible human being you are

Lee, where to begin? What an absolutely incredible human being you are. We cannot even begin to thank you enough for what you did for us by donating your services, and how you made our wedding day that extra bit special.

Having a photographer at our wedding was such an important part for us, and knew the memories held in the photos would last a lifetime. The photos you produced were like nothing we had ever seen before, with such natural emotion being captured in each shot. The photos caught the emotion, detail and mood of the wedding day, and having such a personal feel to them.

Your style was exactly what we were looking for, being candid and natural, but capturing small details and heart-felt expression. Your communication throughout the entire wedding process has been impeccable, and shows how much you care about what you do and about us. The printed photos are gorgeous and the photo box is such a lovely gesture.

We must apologise again for not contacting you on the day you came to visit, and thank you for being so understanding.

It is people like yourself which make us realise how kind, selfless and generous people can really be, and how complete strangers can be so willing to help others out of sheer kindness. Our wedding day was perfect, and it was thanks to you. We wouldn’t have wanted any other wedding photographer. Thank you, from the absolute bottom of our hearts.

Thanks a million,

Lee quite simply is one in a million!

Lee quite simply is one in a million! He was incredible on our wedding day, making us feel relaxed and our photos are stunning. He captured every moment of our day with such perfection! We need more walls for all the photos we want to display now! We have so many gorgeous photos to choose from and we cannot thank Lee enough. Lee not only takes wonderful photos but is a lovely, incredibly hard working and friendly man. We could not have asked for anyone better. Thank you Lee ☺️

100% recommend Lee

100% recommend Lee, in the nicest way possible I forgot he was at my wedding. The way he takes his photos are so discreet they are Incredible. Words can’t describe how happy we are with the photos and the care you provide. We will definitely keep in touch!

What can we say other than wow!!

What can we say other than wow!! We did a lot of looking for the right photographer for our wedding in October 2018. We loved Lee’s website and he was shortlisted along with three other photographers. In the end Lee was the only photographer that we met, and we were certainly not disappointed.

From our very first meeting with Lee, we knew he was the right photographer for us – friendly and personable he certainly made us feel at ease on the first meeting and on the day of the wedding.

We met with Lee a couple of times and corresponded regularly on the lead up to our big day. We had a clear vision of what we wanted and what was expected and Lee delivered over and beyond this.

We had a final pre-wedding meeting with Lee, so we were very clear on what we did and didn’t want. Lee already knew the venue but would have done a site visit if needed.

On the day, wow, Lee worked so very hard. He worked with us to get the best of our guests and ourselves and never felt like he was in the way, everything felt so very natural.

We were delighted that we had a sample of photos to look at the next day, and were even more impressed when all our photos were available to view online within 2 weeks. Lee really did capture the magic of the day and how he managed to capture literally ALL our guests was just amazing.

We recently received our datastick with all the photos wonderfully packaged in a wooden carved box along with a selection of photos.

We have only been married 2 months but are repeatedly looking back over the photos – Lee did an amazing job! I’ve recommended him to others already and delighted to know my friend has booked him for her wedding.

We cannot praise Lee enough for the amazing job he did on our wedding photography, and couldn’t recommend him enough – and Lee is also a really great guy!!!

Passionate, Creative & Professional

Our wedding photos are amazing – they completely capture not only the people and key moments, but also all of the emotions and subtleties of the day. Working with Lee was an absolute pleasure; right from our first conversation we felt completely at ease; he’s passionate, creative and professional when needed but most of the time it felt like being with a friend. He blended into the wedding and didn’t stop throughout the day – we truly couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thank you so much!
