Steven Brooks Wedding Photographer

NORFOLK BASED PHOTOGRAPHER

Choosing the right wedding photographer “for you” is an incredibly important decision. If you’re looking for honest coverage of your special day resulting in a range of stunning, romantic and factual images then please get in touch to learn more.

My finished work has been described as “beautiful, elegant, timeless, contemporary yet traditional” and I believe that my instinct for storytelling ensures that cherished moments from your wedding day will last for generations.

I do not over complicate the coverage of your day. I keep the coverage flowing and natural as possible. No awkward posing or long moments waiting on lighting set-ups. The coverage reflects your personality, not mine.

Please get in touch with me by telephone, email, Skype or via my Contact page.

Timeless and Uncontrived ...

My Style


My photography has led me to cover weddings throughout the UK and internationally and for me, every wedding is different, every wedding is important and therefore special in every way. Years of professional experience, working predominantly with natural light and the surrounding architecture helps me to capture the narrative of your wedding unobtrusively and reflects your day in images.

Creating authentic wedding photography is what I strive for, a coverage that tells your story and my style combines documentary styling with fine art imagery – a combination that delivers the best of two genres.


Moments in images ...

DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY


My approach is relaxed and with an “honest portrayal” of your day. If my style were to be labelled you can call it reportage or documentary wedding photography; for me its simply story-telling! What is very important to me is that I photograph your wedding in a way that reflects your character and personality. The end result is a collection of natural, beautiful images that tell your story from bridal preparations through to the evenings entertainment.

Please do also take a moment to read some of my customer testimonials below.


Beautiful and stunning images ....

SIGNATURE WEDDING IMAGES


My wedding photography coverage is very natural, uncontrived and if you are looking for some “signature images” we need to take some time out from your reception to capture some beautiful, stunning images. No un-natural posing just the wedding couple and their captured venue setting.

These images go towards creating the full page “wow factor” in your album or making ideal photographs to adorn any wall. Fine Art Wedding Photography gives you the imagery that will last for generations. Please ask me for details of the “signature” enhancements.


Storytelling in images ...

REPORTAGE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY


My reportage wedding photography is designed to capture your wedding day as it happens, creating a series of images that tell a story. Unlike the traditional method of posing for a photo, this style captures you and your guests at your most relaxed as you enjoy the big day. There is a natural flow to your day and does not become a huge photo-shoot. Most couples also like to take time out to have some “signature” images taken, using the venue, its grounds and architecture as a backdrop. I am also well versed in Asian and Jewish weddings ceremonies – please see my blog posts for a taste of the colours and occasions.


International coverage ...

DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY


My wedding coverage not only serves Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire but all over the UK and Internationally. Destination Weddings are quoted on a bespoke basis and welcomed! This past season I have photographed weddings in Italy, Monte Carlo, Denmark, France and Africa – so no matter where your wedding is being held, in the UK or internationally, get in contact to discuss your dream destination wedding.


Before your big day ...

AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT


If you’re feeling a little apprehensive about being the main focus in front of the lens you can book an Engagement Shoot as preparation for your wedding day. These sessions are a good way for us to get to know each other and learn what type of shots work best for you – they can also help improve your confidence for the big day!

If your chosen wedding collection does not include an Engagement Shoot simply get in touch to discuss this option. Prices start at £250.00 for a shoot in Norfolk or Suffolk but I do travel around the country. So, give me a call to discuss your ideas!


QUEENSBERRY ALBUMS

WEDDING ALBUMS


The images from your wedding will be the narrative of your day, telling your story for years and not forgetting generations to come.

The end result will be a custom designed Queensberry album – choose from the  contemporary Flushmount, Classic Traditional or a fusion of traditional and contemporary, the stunning Duo album. Our albums are the finest in the world, each hand crafted and personalised to a high degree to perfectly enhance your photographs. Every image in your album goes through an artistic enhancement edit, thus ensuring the perfect combination of album and image.

An image stored on your hard drive and viewed on a screen will never match the quality that can be achieved in a Queensberry! Relive your dream day by opening your wedding album, releasing the day’s captured images that tell the story of your day.


Providing the right image ...

IMAGES & GALLERY


To get a better feel and understanding for my work, please view my Gallery page which includes Signature and Album images and Blog posts. Whilst I have a timeless style, images are always produced with your consideration in mind. The final result can be a combination of colour and black & white images but this is dependant on the conditions of the day.

Every image goes through an edit process, each worked on individually, ensuring each image is enhanced to bring out the very finest finished image. Album and “Signature” images go through an additional art process and this finish is not included as standard in your digital files.

Some kind words…

  • Jessica + Sylvain
    Dear future brides, Ours was a budget wedding and we ruthlessly exploited the skills and time of our loved ones for many elements of our day. However, there were three areas were we did chose to spend our money: the food; the music; the photographer. We chose Steven because his photographs are natural, elegant, intimate and never intrusive. I saw my wedding day through joy goggles and was a little worried that in photos it, and I, might just look a little shabby. Instead, looking at Steven’s images, I again felt light, loved and lucky. They have allowed me to witness moments of other’s happiness and have shown me that it is possible to capture the emotion, feeling and essence of an experience. Steven’s professionalism meant that our budget wedding was treated as though it was an incredibly important event. For us it was and Steven honoured that. I am so pleased that Steven agreed to photograph our wedding and would recommend him unreservedly.
  • Alice + Richard
    We cannot express enough thanks to you for the wonderful photos. They captured the whole spirit of our wedding day. Since then, many of our guests have commented on how fun, relaxed and amazing the day was and I can see that spirit through your photographs. Our guests have found them to be wonderful to look at and often comment to us on your skills as a photographer, in both your presence on the day and from the photos. You were such a joy to have around, putting us all at ease and working so tirelessly all day, including staying longer than you were expected.
  • Amy + Mark
    I kept telling Steven on the day that I was so happy that he was our photographer - we couldn't have felt happier with him. It is very easy to like Steven; relaxed, helpful and lovely, he fitted in perfectly with our guests on the day. He was patient through out the process of working with him for our wedding day and really helped to bring his experience with the running of the day. This was especially helpful for us as we live overseas. We liked his style of photography, natural and unobtrusive. We only spent a short time taking a few posed photos due to the cold weather and our tight timetable for the events, but those photos turned out beautifully and we enjoyed that part of our wedding day the most. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steven and feel really lucky to have found out about him!
  • Sophie + Nick
    "I have already looked through the photos 3 times, I am blown away by how amazing they are! I am in the process of describing them to Nick, I only hope I do them justice. They really are incredible, I can't thank you enough for them!! I do not know how I am going to choose the images for the album, I would want them all in! Again, thank you so much for such wonderful photos, you are an incredible photographer."
  • Frances + Sam
    Thank you so much for our beautiful Queensberry wedding album. We are thrilled to bits with it and will treasure it forever. Thank you for your hard work and help with all aspects of the wedding. You were fantastic on the day and so many people have commented on what a great photographer you are!
  • Michelle + Simon
    My Dear Steven: I can only start by thanking you for being our wonderful, patient, brave and fun photographer … every single shot was worth the cold and the numb fingers (and more) … Ever since I saw the first picture I was so excited and I knew we were going to have amazing photos! And finally, when the website was ready to see them all, I was all shaking and full of expectation … and wow! It was just incredible.. every image, took my breath away… I was sitting beside Simon and I could feel I was beginning to cry, Simon looked at me and told me he knew I wasn’t going to last long without sharing my tears of happiness, I was all emotional!! Every imagine took me back to our wonderful wedding...
  • Sarah + Mike
    We just want to say a huge thank you for all the wonderful passion, energy and enthusiasm you put into producing our wedding photographs, not only on the day, but also in all the preparation you did beforehand. "You have captured the day so beautifully; We love every single photograph and will treasure them forever. Volunteering to arrive several hours early just to get some shots of the groom and his ushers in the sea beforehand was the cherry on the, already scrumptious, cake. Your relaxed and encouraging style meant we really enjoyed the photo sessions, despite usually being a little uncomfortable being photographed, and the genuine passion you showed made us feel very special. We wish you well deserved and continued success and cannot wait to get our new baby shots done by you, should the need arise!
