I specialise in contemporary, alternative and elegant wedding photography in Somerset and all over the UK.
I love being a wedding photographer, as it means that I spend my time capturing people on the most important day of their lives in beautiful surroundings. For me photographing weddings has all the ingredients for some seriously creative photography. Each wedding is different, each bride and groom has their own personality and each day presents its own opportunities. So right from the start I saw the chance to have fun and capture some amazing photographs every time.
My style is to keep things relaxed, to shoot the day as it unfolds. I don’t like to force things, spending hours setting up elaborate situations that result in photos that look staged and unnatural. I can appreciate that not everyone feels comfortable in front of a camera, and so I see it as part of my job to make them feel at ease.
Although I am based in Somerset, I have photographed weddings in locations all over the UK and also in Europe. I am always happy to travel further afield when the opportunity arises.
As well as being a photographer I enjoy being married to my wife, who also works with me whenever a second wedding photographer is needed. We are lucky enough to become parents for the first time in 2013, and our baby daughter has presented lots of new opportunities for taking photographs!
“Honestly each time I look at our wedding photos (everyday!) I well up! Our day wasn't run in the normal way, but Aran utilised every ounce of spare time to prepare for capturing the moments that mattered!! And apart from when we went off for our couple shots, I barely knew he was there, obviously the pictures are proof that he was.
I know people express things they may have done differently afterwards, but I can hand on heart say choosing Aran as our photographer would be a choice I'd make over and over again!!!”
“Aran is a true professional with a genuine flare and talent for photography and design. We had both an engagement shoot and our wedding photography with him and we couldn't have made a better choice.
He captured our wedding day superbly. The weather was not on our side - torrential rain and gale-force wind, but despite this we have so many beautiful photographs that we will treasure forever. There is a very natural feel to the photography which is just what we wanted - he captured the true story of our day.
We would certainly recommend Aran to anybody looking for naturally beautiful, creative wedding photography”
“We used Latitude Photography for our wedding in September 2013. Aran perfectly captured our special day and took an amazing selection of photos. He put us at ease in front of the camera and helped us ensure that we got all the group shots we wanted without spending hours away from our guests.
We have already recommended Latitude Photography to friends who have got married recently and their photos also look gorgeous.”
“Aran’s pictures captured our special day beautifully! His easy going nature helped us relax and feel at ease in front of the lens. His ability to capture the moment is second to none and the images he took of our family, friends and of us are better than we could have wished for.”
“My first reaction on seeing our photographs was that they were AMAZING and I was able to re-live the day all over again through the photographs. He captured the day just as we wanted; his style is very relaxed and unobtrusive resulting in some beautiful shots of us, our guests and our venue and all the little personal touches we had worked hard to create. Aran also had to battle with the unpredictable January weather which resulted in some very lovely outside shots. I would recommend Aran without hesitation.”
“Aran’s vision to find the perfect photo shows through in all his work. We are so pleased that we used him for our wedding photos, and would recommend him to anyone. Amazing photos!”
“Could not recommend Aran highly enough. Professional and friendly service and really understood what we were looking for from our wedding photos. The final results are amazing and captured our day perfectly.”
“Through a carefully crafted mix of formal and informal shots Aran succeeded in capturing the essence of our day with the minimum of intrusion or disruption. Aran’s enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment to providing a top quality service made him a pleasure to work with before, during and after our ceremony.”
“Aran captured both of our weddings (Catholic and Hindu) perfectly. We loved the mixture of classic and contemporary photography, and his relaxed but professional style gave us the end result we were looking for. We can’t stop looking at the pictures which will always bring back very fond memories.”
“Camera shy and nervous about all eyes being on us, I was a bit worried about feeling like there were photos being taken all day. I shouldn't have been!!! Aran was subtle and a quiet calming presence throughout the mayhem. The images that he captured are stunning and we have the most amazing memories to treasure.”
