My Approach

Every wedding is unique, and that is reflected in the images I deliver to you. I tell your wedding day story creatively and naturally, specifically capturing the real moments, and the one thing I am especially passionate about, colour! Stylish and beautiful images don’t have to be monotone and gloomy. I celebrate the joy and light of your day which hopefully shines through the pages of my website.

Just as every wedding is unique, every couple is unique as well. Some happy to play the model, others deeply shy and inexperienced in front of the camera. I work within your comfort zone, never dictating awkward or forced poses, but preferring for you to have a casual stroll together whilst I shoot from a distance, or place you within a beautiful scene simply existing together.

I love working with a couple, from those with bags of ideas that embrace some of my more out-there suggestions, to those who have no idea what they want, but trust me to blow their socks off when they see the photos, often delivered back to them as soon as the week after the wedding!

Wedding Veteran

I am a 35-year-old wedding veteran. Usher 7 times, best man twice and married. I have been on the receiving end of 2-hour wedding day photo-shoots in searing temperatures, as well as the frustration of a friend of the family with a cheap SLR taking uninspiring pictures.

I have used these experiences to create a better way. One that doesn’t steal time from the day, one that celebrates the simple and often overlooked moments, and one that creates stunning and creative images that last for the rest of your lives together. It’s an approach that is proving immensely popular as the feedback from my clients has been humbling. Just have a nose at my testimonials page.

I love doing this, and I believe my enthusiasm and energy will rub off on you too within a short chat. Drop me an email at enquiries@leehawleyphotography.com and I am always happy to arrange a meet up to discuss what I can offer.

Tech Stuff

I use top spec professional equipment, including full frame cameras that records to 2 SD cards, and high aperture lenses. I only use a flash when absolutely necessary as to avoid impacting on the moment, and my latest camera bodies achieves that with incredible low light performance.

The Business

Lee Hawley Photography is owned and run by little old me. Everything you see on my website, every photo, web page, brochure, leaflet, email or social media post is made exclusively by me. This is way more than a business, it is an all consuming passion and I want everything you experience with Lee Hawley Photography to be the result of my approach, work ethic and style. Warts and all! I would rather things be a bit quirky but be the real me, as I know for every couple that is puts off, another will feel a connection, resulting in me getting the right couples.

I am never not at "work". Email me, and unless I'm actually shooting a wedding, you will get a reply within the hour. In a previous life I worked for well over a decade in construction and building services, including 3 years on the tools as an electrician. I know what hard work is and what long hours are, and I maintain that work ethic with Lee Hawley Photography, often up late into the evening editing your images to stick to the short turn around times I promise, or meeting couples any evening of the week, sometimes in different counties, or even countries (Wales counts!).

The truth is, this isn't really work. I feel immensely privileged to do something I love so much, so it is the least I can do, to give it my all.

The photos were sensational

Wow… where to start. From the moment we met Lee he made both me and more importantly my wife so relaxed it was easy. We had a pre-shoot a few weeks before the big day and had such a laugh doing this with our son too and have some beautiful photos to cherish. The big day was so relaxing, we didn’t even realise Lee was there. We asked for more casual photos and he certainly delivered on that front, but his innovative ideas must be inspiring for young photographers. The photos were sensational, and I would highly recommend Lee to anyone, we will always be grateful for all his memories he has provided us with

We are so pleased we decided to choose Lee to capture our wedding

We are so pleased we decided to choose Lee to capture our wedding last month.
His work is faultless, he managed to capture every single emotion and each moment of our wedding day perfectly.
His organisation throughout the day was also impeccable, his method of getting the staged photos done and dusted within a short amount of time meant we could relax and enjoy our day spent with our closest family and friends, rather than posing in front of the camera!
His style of photography suited us down to a tee – natural, candid and expressionate, allowing for personality to shine through the photos.
Needless to say, my husband and I would high recommend Lee’s services to any couples looking for a wedding photographer.

Thanks again Lee!

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

His eye for a great shot is superb

Lee did a bridal flowers wedding shoot for our new business and the photos were excellent. He had thoroughly researched the location and created a diverse portfolio of unusual and eye-catching images for me. His eye for a great shot is superb and he’s a really lovely chap too!
