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.

We need more wall space for all the pictures!

Not only does Lee do amazing wedding photos but he kindly helped us get some pictures of our pups last weekend and they are spectacular! Thank you so much for your help – we’ve never managed to get any decent pictures of them and now we have loads! We need more wall space for all the pictures! Can’t thank you enough!

We didnt even notice he was there

Lee was brilliant on our weding day! We didnt even notice he was there snapping away! We wanted natural and not staged images and he delivered exactly that! He listened to what we wanted and put his own twist on our day! Thankyou.

Would 100% recommend

I would absolutely recommend Lee to anyone as their wedding photographer – he met with us a couple of time prior to the wedding to chat through things with us, and prompt us to think about a few things that we hadn’t thought about ourselves! Lee checked out the venue and did a lot of research for good photo spots and didn’t hesitate to help us figure out how best to do the wedding reveal when we decided on that at the last minute! We had a lovely impromptu pre-wedding shoot in the snow, and on the actual day Lee was both helpful, there when you needed him and yet also managed to be unobtrusive and blend in. Many of our guests commented on this too. The wedding photos themselves are fantastic and really capture the moments of the day, a few people who weren’t there said they made them feel like they had been. The wedding diary video blog was also a nice extra. Would 100% recommend.

finding Lee was the best thing I did for the whole wedding!

For being, quite possibly the most unorganized bride in history, finding Lee was the best thing I did for the whole wedding! The day itself goes so quickly, and you miss so much, but Lee makes absolutely certain that he doesn’t miss a thing. He captured every single moment and gave us stunning natural shots of us and everyone that shared our magical day…all of whom have said “they didn’t even know he was there”. I don’t know how Lee did it, but he was everywhere all of the time! As a couple who have never had photos taken of us professionally, Lee took the time to listen and get to know us and truly put us at ease. The photos are fabulous and will never be able to narrow it down to a ‘favourite’. Thank you Lee, from the new Mr and Mrs Wilcox

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!
