MY PHILOSOPHY

Dorset based Multi-Award Winning Wedding & Engagement Photography by Nick Rutter

Hello, thanks for visiting my site. I’m a Multi-Award Winning Wedding and Engagement Photographer based in Bournemouth, covering Dorset, Hampshire and the rest of the UK, as well as Destination Weddings and Destination Engagement Shoots.

Nick Rutter Photography is now in it’s 8th year and I absolutely love what I do. I am so very fortunate to be able to not only do a job that I love, but one that is creative and that creates a superb rapport with people. It’s important to say that the type of couple that book me are serious about their photography. For me and for them, it’s not about money, it’s so much more about absolutely loving a photographers style/work and basing your decision mostly on that as well as the quality, service, design and rapport with me.

I'm a Bournemouth wedding photographer, mostly covering Dorset and Hampshire Weddings but also booked across the UK. I also cover destination weddings and I am known to be distinctively different to other photographers, because I put an emphasis on the engagement shoot which is part of my packages. It is there to build rapport between us, spending time together, as well as getting used to the camera; hopefully in a creative and meaningful location to you. However, unlike other photographers, for your engagement shoot, I never shoot the same location twice, making it very unique and creative for you as well as for me to keep me fresh but also delivering something different for each couple. Any photographer can shoot the same location all year round. My aim though, is to expand your thinking and go out side of the box to really give you something different from the norm, but also unique to you. We can literally do the engagement shoot anywhere in the UK or outside of the country.

Please take time in looking through my work on my Blog. If I can give you any advice (even if you don't wish to book with me), base your decision on booking a photographer on loving their style of work, having an awesome rapport with them, see the difference from them and others work and invest early so you have a good budget for a photographer - at least 10% of your overall budget. Make it your 2nd thing to book after your venue. You can then definitely book a great photographer and be in good hands to receive stunning photos of your big day.

If you love my style of photography, please do get in touch.
