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.

..captured the heart and soul

We chose Lee to take our wedding photos last weekend and we know we definitely made the right choice. Everyone really appreciated his energy and company and for us the photos genuinely captured the heart and soul of the occasion. Highly recommended.

..one of our best decisions for the day

Having Lee as the photographer for our wedding was one of our best decisions for the day. We loved and really appreciated his relaxed style and it was like having another friend there who was capturing everything beautifully. We met with Lee a couple of times before hand, he was very accommodation and met us at our home. He was professional, to the point, and made sure that how the day went was exactly what we wanted. On the day itself, he made us both feel relax and even as I was having my hair and make up done, made it seem as if I had an extra friend there helping me out! At the venue, he was also fantastic at helping even at the ordering of the day, helping my brother line up the music, and making sure Nick and I didn’t see each other. His photos are beautiful, we are so pleased with them, and he even managed to get some smiling and laughing pictures of one of the children who is notoriously shy. I would recommend Lee to anyone. Thank you again for absolutely everything, we were so pleased we chose you!

Genuinely Amazing

Lee was absolutely amazing from start to finish. From our initial call to when we met before the wedding and all throughout the wedding day. We had really wanted the photographs to be natural, capturing guests having a good time. It was important to us that we also got to enjoy our day and we didn’t want to be taken off for long periods for photo shoots. Lee took on board everything we said and he was so discrete during the wedding. He was in fact, so discrete I could hardly believe he managed to take all the photos he did! In just over a week, we had our photos back and they are genuinely amazing and we feel they have really captured the feelings we had on the day. It was great for us to relive some really special moments looking back at the photos. I would recommend booking Lee any day and I suspect he is going to get hugely popular very quickly! He clearly loves what he does and this is key to hiring anybody involved in a day as special as a wedding. You are 100% in safe hands with Lee.

Down to Earth, Amazing Photographer!

We are definitely not a couple who like having our photo taken, and generally if we do, we pull faces… so when we were looking for a wedding photographer we really wanted someone who understood that we did not want the traditional and didn’t really want to feel like we were posing for photos. So we found Lee… we met him at a Wedding Fayre and liked his hat (and photos) so got talking to him. Straight away we liked him, the stuffy wedding vibe put me off alot of the wedding fayre(!) but Lee was ‘normal’ and said he would be able to do what we wanted and seemed to like what we suggested. He was so easy to communicate with, speedy emails, it was like talking to a friend. On the day he was so spot on, everyone commented how lovely he was and how you didn’t even realise he was there. The Groomsmen really enjoyed the morning with Lee- apparently he needs to be there every time they meet up now! We have some amazingly stunning shots of the wedding that I never dreamed we would have. We had a lot of fun with Lee and will use him in the future whenever we need photos! Very much recommend anyone to have a chat with Lee if you are looking for a down to earth, amazing photographer!
