Hello, I'm Simon Atkins, a wedding photojournalist for couples who love unposed storytelling wedding photography. I have a background in newspaper photojournalism that gives a unique look to my photography.
From a luxury three day wedding in Venice to an intimate town hall wedding with four hours coverage, one thing remains the same and that is my approach to documenting weddings without any prompting, interference or posing. I dress like a wedding guest and blend in capturing real moments and real emotions.
I'm a Northamptonshire wedding photographer working all over the UK and beyond.
100% real moments beautifully captured

Dear Simon, Lena and I looked through your beautiful album last night. It is a stunning presentation of your outstanding photos of such a phenomenal day that really enabled us to relive everything with enormous grins on our faces! As I’ve mentioned before, you have managed to capture not just the main significant moments from a unique and stimulating perspective, you have also somehow managed to seemingly be in the background everywhere else to catch so many small moments that collectively reflect the whole wonderful atmosphere of the day.
Charlie & Lena, wedding North Cadbury Court.
I bring a photojournalistic eye to my storytelling wedding photography, I've photographed over 1,000 weddings all over the UK as well as Venice, France, Menorca & Ireland. I have photographed a number of celebrity weddings including Martin Shaw's son Joe Shaw (actor), TV presenter Jasmine Harman, comedian & actor Rob Brydon, car designer J.Mays, comedian Lucy Montgomery, Queen music video producer Rhys Thomas.
I'm also available for documentary family photography.
I photograph weddings in a genuine unposed documentary way. Other than a few group photographs (if required) I do not interfere with the events on the day, instead I blend in as a wedding guest and capture real moments as they happen. My skill is in capturing photographs that show a story rather than just a series of candid snapshots, I do this in a number of ways including layered images (where lots of things are going on in one photograph), using wide angle lenses, looking for actions and reactions, taking photographs that work together as a series and capturing the atmosphere of the wedding. I use my vast experience (over 20 years in professional photography) and my training in photojournalism to look for moments that capture the essence of your wedding.
My approach to wedding photography is to take photographs that make you feel something, I want to convey a moment, a memory, 1/125th of a second frozen in time. When you look back through your wedding photographs I want to bring back real memories of how you felt at the moment I took the photograph.
Am I the right photographer for you?
If you are looking for a set of photographs that you can look back on in 5/10/50 years and relive your wedding day complete with all the emotions then my style of photography is right for you, what I don't do is lots of posed photographs, smoke bombs (a current trend in wedding photography), or follow the latest trends. Instead I offer timeless wedding photography that will still look fresh in future years. If that sounds like what you are looking for I would love to chat with you about your plans. I promise no hard selling as I hate that too!
