MY PHILOSOPHY

Hampshire and Dorset based Creative Wedding & Engagement Photography by Nick Rutter

Hello! Thanks for visiting my site. I am perhaps different from other photographers and especially in the South of the UK (where you might be searching for the right photographer for your big day) as I don't want to be just any photographer, shooting the same thing, at each wedding week after week. I want to be different and be booked based on your love for my work and how I shoot, giving me creative freedom to shoot your day through my eyes. If you love that, and 'get it', then I'm the right photographer for you and we can meet up soon and discuss your big day!

Visit my About Me page for more information. My contact details are on the Contact page. Feel free  to fill out the form to make an enquiry.

I have a reportage style to my work, a 'fly on the wall approach' if you will, as well as capturing you the couple, very naturally, not looking at the camera, but focusing more on your connection. I love images to be clean and colourful, using shapes where possible and not take 'the easy shot' or the 'obvious' locations at a wedding venue or area. I plan and allocate a good amount of time with you both to fully explore the creative possibilities we may have at your venue, whether in the UK or if you are organising a Destination Wedding.

I like to produce and deliver dynamics where possible on the wedding day. Normal day light, the golden hour light, sunset and the night time. I also focus highly on your engagement shoot which is part of most of my packages. I never cover the same location twice so it is always unique and creative and the engagement shoot also helps you understand the way I work as well as developing rapport, trust and confidence in me.

As you may have seen, I cover a number of weddings in Bournemouth and Dorset where I am based, as well as other counties near to me like Hampshire. My passion has always been creativity and giving a couple dynamics with their photography. I am inspired with blank canvases, new locations, wedding venues I have never shot at before so I can remain fresh and to ultimately give you something unique.

Where your wedding, and indeed my service to you, is all about you and the love you have for each other and your big day, I believe that when booking a wedding photographer, it is about absolutely loving their style, but also understanding and fully embracing their vision for what they want to achieve for their work. Every professional photographer at some stage in their career will decide the style they like and how they want to shoot, as well as what they want to achieve and how to set themselves apart from other photographers work. This is what drives me - giving you something different.

When you love what you do and have that creative freedom, that love and passion makes you work hard so that you achieve something wonderful. Something unique has far more value than something that's been done a thousand times before.
