"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do" -RUMI-
I spent almost 30 years of my life working for many charities and public sector bodies until I made the brave step of setting up Instinctive Images. I turned my passion for photography into a business and have not looked back. I now combine my photography as well as work for a national charity.
It's worth noting that my wedding gallery on my website does not display all images because of client decisions to keep images private. I strongly adhere to this because my clients who I value are at the heart of what I do.
I provide a range of photography, weddings, engagements, anniversaries, events either corporate or charity functions, award ceremonies, outdoor fun days or festival, open days, birthday parties, portraits either on your own, couple or family shoots both indoor or outdoor. I am versatile in what I do and will have a pre-consultation so you get exactly the images you need.
I have lots of testimonials from past and current clients who have hired me to tell you how they found the services I offer.
Additionally, I provide videography or cinematography as well as a wedding album service if required. I have other professionals who I hire for this who I trust for their professionalism. Getting both services from one supplier saves time, which means you can focus on organising your special occasion or event. I encourage you to talk to photographers when shopping around, just to get a feel of what they are able to offer. I am here to help. If you're local, I may be able to meet in person so that you can get to see the man behind the camera!
I am fully insured, am Enhanced DBS certified and am a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
Take a look at my Frequently Asked Questions page on my profile and drop me a line if there is something not answered there.
I hope to hear from you soon and let's make beautiful memories together.

Amjid was great. He was happy to chat leading up to the day and didn't mind a last minute change of plans. He was very easy to get along with and very accommodating. He has taken some beautiful pictures and I'm really happy with the service.

Excellent photography. Amjid covered our marriage photography and he was very warm, making every one relaxed to ensure the best moments are captured in perfect way.

Amjid captured countless special, candid moments among family and friends at our wedding by being approachable, warm, and creative. The photos are a beautiful mix of shots, and Amjid was an absolute pleasure to work with from day 1. Couldn't be more pleased!
