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 £325.00 for a shoot in Norfolk but I do travel around the country.


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…

  • Aiste & Rhys
    Steven, you are an absolute legend. Your experience, warm and welcoming personality, and photographical wizardry are truly incredible. You turned a daunting pre-wedding shoot in the centre of London into a really enjoyable and fun experience. After seeing the results of that day, we knew the wedding photos would be incredible – you didn’t let us down! Everyone commented on how much fun you were on the day and how amazing the photos looked. You managed to capture every detail and emotion perfectly and have given us such a vivid memory of our big day. We can’t thank you enough for a truly amazing service and look forward to you capturing more of our special moments!
  • Helen + Ben
    A kind, understanding and gentle man, Steven completely understands how to achieve the best out of a bride on her big day – I was overwhelmed with our photographs and would happily recommend Steven to all of my single, waiting to get married, friends!
  • Esther + Christopher
    A huge thank you to Steven for capturing our special day in such a beautiful way. Every shot shows how much emotion and portrays every moment of the day seamlessly. From the initial consultation we had at the venue with Steven, we both walked away with such confidence that Steven would provide us with beautiful photographs that we would cherish forever. Choosing a photographer was one of the most important decisions for us to make when planning the wedding, and we got it spot on! We has so many lovely comments about how professional and friendly Steven was from family and friends. Throughout the day Steven went the extra mile and helped guide us through the day. We cannot wait to share our photographs with our familes and friends. I can’t stop looking at them! We cannot thank Steven enough!
  • Anne + Oliver
    Thank you so much for all you did to make our wedding one we can look back on as relatively stress free (on the day) Your patience and calmness was infectious and was so helpful when things did get a little frenzied. I can't tell you how nice it was so see your reassuring smile when I felt a little panicked that things were not running smoothly when gathering the groups for photos. What fun we had last night looking at the photos! They are wonderful and captured the day and the feel of our wedding so much. There was not one thing you missed. Thank you!
  • Kim + Robert
    A massive thank you for the wonderful photographs you have taken for our wedding. They are perfect and really helped to capture the day. Many of our friends and family commented on how great you were as well!
  • Hannah + Aaron
    Thank you so much for coming and helping and being so great on our wedding. Many people have commented on what a nice guy you were! I asked if we were talking about the same person!! (just joking!) We have had a look through the images and there are so many great images to choose from, not an easy task! Thanks so much again!
  • Claire + James
    After much researching on the web we ended up going back to the same site time and again and both agreed that Steven was the photograher for us. From the very first meeting at our home we knew that he was the person to best capture our big day in just the way we wanted. On receiving the beautifully presented disk of images a few weeks after our Wedding, we were not disappointed. Steven’s friendly personality and ability to blend into the day, feeling more like a guest than a photographer, put everyone at ease and allowed him to get some amazing shots. His attention to detail and superb editing of the photo’s has given us an album that will bring back wonderful memories of the day in the years to come. We would have no hesitation in recommending Steven’s services to anyone! Thank you so much for all your work before, on and after our big day!
