A little bit about us
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything. Aaron Siskind
Serving the South East and beyond, we are a husband and wife team who love shooting weddings together. I am Simon and I'm the primary photographer. My wife, Abi, covers the weddings by my side providing a valuable second camera as well as organising and helping whilst I set up shots to help the flow of the day and make everything as easy and fluid as your day can be. Although she has a day job, she is also a pretty good photographer in her own right and has been published on several occasions.
Our wedding photography is a beautiful mix of reportage coverage and stunning set pieces to treasure, mount on your wall and make you smile at every time you look at them. We pride ourselves on our friendly and professional service, a service that goes way beyond mere photography. And I genuinely mean that. For instance, we have helped flower girls get their petals ready; repaired bridesmaids' shoes with my handy Leatherman (on more than one occasion!); cleared a room of spiders for anxious family members... We've even run an entire wedding when the MC was a no show. In fact, we will do everything we can to make your day run as smoothly and as relaxed as possible because a relaxed and happy bride and groom make for a relaxed and happy wedding. This is your special day, we want to to remember it as such.

A few Testimonials
Words cannot express how pleased we are with the outcome of our wedding photos. Not that we ever had any doubts! You truly encapsulated the love, laughter and atmosphere of our day and for that we'll always be able to treasure those moments forever.
Simon and Abi made us feel so relaxed on our special day and you both went above and beyond which we truly appreciate.
Exceptional photography, you have the perfect eye to capture every detail and have a great talent to create something a bit different which is what we love! We can't thank you enough and we would highly recommend you to anyone. Your pictures really do say it all and hopefully our paths will cross again in future for some more amazing photography.Katie and Ian

We chose Simon and Abi Newbury to take our Wedding photographs because with their artistic background and positive, professional nature - we knew we would be in good hands and get fabulous photographs. The final photos turned out so great that in fact, they even exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with the results!
We wanted to achieve mainly candid shots throughout the day, and Simon and Abi really listened and produced exactly what we wanted. They were absolutely brilliant. Their fun and positive attitude made the difficult photographs (e.g. trying to get the whole wedding party together) enjoyable. They also did something we really didn't expect - in the morning they helped out whilst I was getting ready and even entertained the kids, all the while capturing the most beautiful pictures. Several of them are just outstanding and we will treasure them forever!
Unfortunately it rained on our Wedding day and we were worried that we wouldn't get any nice outdoor shots - but Simon and Abi proved us wrong! They worked wonders with the lighting, positioning, and editing - to make even our very grey day look atmospheric, romantic and bright. They also managed to capture peoples expressions in the most flattering way, and the clarity of the photos is no less than spectacular.
Thank you Simon and Abi for capturing such meaningful images for us and our family, and for going the extra mile to make our day and photographs truly emotional and special. My husband and I are so thrilled with the finished results, and we will be recommending you to all our friends and family.Evelyn Garnett

Simon and Abi, what can I say? You were both amazing on Saturday doing what you do best at Paige and David's wedding.
You put the bride, groom and everybody at ease and could not have been more professional. We had a few giggles and a quick rush to catch the rainbow that all added to the day. It was like having family taking the pictures and not someone that we had only just met.
I cannot express my sincere thanks to you both for capturing and recording their day in the medium of photos. Judging by the 8 pictures showing here at the moment, they will have an amazing wedding album. Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of one very happy father of the bride's heart.
