"Unlike any other visual image, a photograph is not a rendering, an imitation or an interpretation of its subject, but actually a trace of it. No painting or drawing, however naturalist, belongs to its subject in the way that a photograph does".
Timothy Winn Wedding & Portrait photography was born a couple of years ago, actually at the suggestion of a friend, who really enjoyed the images we took at his wedding. The photographs were a combination of the informal, relaxed and creative, approaches that attempted to break the mold of more traditional wedding photography. The seed grew, so to speak, and here we are. I say we of course, because one of the most important ingredients was bringing my wife on board. Her passion for the photographic image has incessantly grown over the the last few years, and more so since the birth of our son Isaac in Feb 2011!
My own background in photography stretches back many years and formed an important part of both my Fine Art BA & MA degree courses. Since leaving university I have always strived to maintain my own personal work (most of which can be seen on my non commercial site) which has always been a fundamental underpinning for the rest of my photographic endeavours, commercial or otherwise!
Our ambition to photograph weddings and portraits comes from a desire to create evocative, emotive and individual images that preserve some of the happiest moments of a couples' life for years to come. Photography is a powerful medium; magical, poignant, a repository of memory, alongside being a potential family heirloom. Thus the creation of such images should be crafted with care and consideration. This philosophy has become one of our fundamental principles, making sure that every image receives the craft and attention it deserves.
Today we take on a range of photographic assignments (from portraits and shows to special occasions) and welcome any form of commissions.
