Hi, I’m Wayne! I am a Hampshire Wedding Photographer based in Southampton.
I first ventured into the world of photography in 1995 as a trainee portrait photographer. I chose to start photographing weddings because I find that there is a unique and special story to each couple’s day, which I always feel extremely privileged to capture. I believe that the beauty of your wedding is in the details. I have a subtle approach, working behind the scenes, creatively documenting your day without being intrusive. I always aim to go beyond capturing just the essential wedding pictures and believe that there is real value in recording those often unstaged moments.

"From the moment we first met and spoke with Wayne over Skype we knew we had found the man for the job of capturing our Special Day on the 21st September 2018. He was very professional but most of all very friendly and made us all feel at ease throughout the day. From the moment he arrived at the hotel to when he left after our 1st dance everyone commented on how great he was. We would highly recommend his services to everyone if you want to look back at pictures and be reminded of a magical day which he captures from start to finish.
Thank you again Wayne for being a big part of our Wedding Day.
Sarah and Anthony xx — with Anthony Burgess."

"Wayne is incredible. His patience, attention to detail and creativity are second to none. Prior to our big day I spoke to Wayne on several occasions regarding our thoughts and wishes and any specific requests that we had.
On the morning of the wedding, he arrived promptly and took the time to get to know everyone in the bridal party paying particular attention to our 2 flower girls, gaining their confidence and trust which led to no problems when taking pictures later in the day. He took lots of shots of us getting ready without us even being aware of his presence.
We have now received our photographs and could not be happier, our special day recorded and memories to treasure and look back on forever.
Our thanks once again to you Wayne for everything you did for us.

"I don’t even know where to begin with how thankful we are to have met Wayne!
I contacted him about a year before our wedding and immediately we knew he was the one! We had our engagement shoot in the New Forest, where he made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, it really helped calm any nerves we felt about about being photographed on the big day!
When our wedding day arrived, Wayne noticed and captured every special part of it, moments we had missed in the whirlwind that is your wedding day!
All our friends and family that celebrated with us commented on what a fantastic job Wayne had done, how relaxed he made everyone feel and how he felt like one of our guests. The photos that we have are truly amazing, and the service Wayne provides goes above and beyond.
Getting married can be so stressful, Wayne was a breath of fresh air and we were 100% confident in him. I couldn’t recommend Wayne highly enough.
Wayne, thank you! Love, Mr and Mrs Jenkins x"

We had alliance photography for our recent wedding in October this year, I was a little nervous about picking a photographer as I wanted to make sure our photos were perfect as it’s a once in a lifetime moment! I also wanted to feel comfortable with the photographer I picked. I have to say I was so so pleased I picked Wayne to be our photographer for our special day! I couldn’t have asked for a better person to deliver a true image of what our day entailed. He was pretty much both photographer and wedding planner he told us where we needed to be at what times and our guest all said how lovely he was. I felt so relaxed around him and our photos are amazing! He really puts a personal touch on the photos for you. I would highly recommend Wayne for your wedding day x
