I’m a Hampshire wedding photographer but I operate nationally, globally even. If you’ve found me it’s because you like natural, un-posed photography. There are several names for this kind of photography including documentary-style, reportage, photojournalism etc. However, they all mean the same thing – the chronicling of events in still image.

Below is a little taster of what I have to offer you as a candid wedding photographer. I shoot spontaneously in the moment. I don’t pose or direct anyone during the wedding I capture, for the most part you won’t even know I am there. I do this because in my opinion, you’ll look your best when you’re being your natural self. Scroll down and see what I mean.

If they did, my goal has been achieved. I want you to smile every time you glance at your wedding photos for ever more, no matter if it’s hanging in your hallway, on your fridge door or on your Facebook page.
I work in a documentary style which means everything I shoot is candid and natural. My aim is to make your best moments last a lifetime and longer. On the other hand, I do also offer portraits and group shots as part of my standard wedding package; however, these shots are not the focus of my photography.
To keep with the natural and candid style that I use, when it is possible I use natural light to perverse an authentic atmosphere and feel. However, when more drama is required – during the first dance for example – I love to use flash. For a more detailed explanation of my approach, head over to my ‘method‘ page.
I’m a firm believer in working with like-minded people and photographing people who feel comfortable around me. Therefore, I think it’s important that you know a little about me. Get to know me on my ‘about‘ page.
I have worked on many weddings in Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset as well as abroad at destination weddings. But I have also been commissioned for shoots for businesses. No matter whether it is a wedding, a party, head shots of your employees or want to commission me for promotional material I can help. See what previous clients have said below about me and my work.
Rex did two amazing shoots for me and my business. His guidance and professional eye helped me achieve the look and feel I wanted for my business website. Thank you!
Rex is a very talented and artistic photographer who captures the essence of people in this work. He is also a lovely person to work with. Delighted with the first batch of images; looking forward to the second shoot.
Rex was the right photographer for us from the word go and was amazing from start to finish. He gave us everything we wanted and more. A beautiful set of documentary style photos. Not posed, not forced, just perfectly natural. Rex is a great character who's easy to get along with and we loved having him at our wedding. Thank you Rex!
