Its difficult to pick out the "best" images from all the photos I have taken over the years. There are just too many to choose. We would be here for a long time! But I have been very fortunate to shoot in some incredible places with some amazing couples who have allowed me the freedom to try and create something unique for their big day. As a Cambridgeshire based wedding photographer, I get the best of the beautiful architecture of the East of England, but have easy access to the rest of the country to go to some amazing locations. So hopefully the images below, a mix of both pre-wedding and Big Day photos, will give you a flavour of what I do and how I do it. I hope you like. If you want to know more, get in touch. And if you are still in the planning stages of your wedding, I can highly recommend a whole bunch of awesome venues and suppliers of who I have worked with over the years or I am on their trusted suppliers list.

John made us all feel relaxed on the day, and if I’m honest, we hardly knew he was even there at some points. John is genuinely such a lovely guy and so amazing at his job

Business, Branding, Website, Head shot and Portfolios - John Woodward Photo

Some say that portraits can be a challenge. Personally, I love trying to get the most from a person, let them enjoy themselves. Portrait photography isn't just about sitting there and smiling. That's probably the worst thing in the world you could do for a portrait shoot. I am there to capture the essence of that person, the soul, the thoughts, mind and beauty of that person. We are all beautiful inside, let me help capture that for you. 

But there is another side to a portrait. It’s all about context. You might just want it as a simple head shot for your work. Got to look good, but we aren’t trying to turn you into a magazine model! Or you might actually need something to sell you. Do you need a re-brand for a business? Does it have to look corporate? There are many places where a portrait is needed and all instances are different. It’s why I listen to your brief, feed it back to you and then try and capture the images you want and need.

Under the slightly different branch of the business, John Woodward Photo, anything from business head shots, to re-branding, images for websites and social media, media stock images and portfolio images for actors, performers and models, I have pretty much done them all! And they are some of the best fun! Chilled, relaxed, fun and above all, right for you. Creative if needs be, I can extract a personality in an image from pretty much anyone. So, if you’re in need of this kind of service for either your business or yourself, have a look here to see what my package involves and here to get in touch to book.

Family Photo Shoots - John Woodward Photo

Family and kids shoots used to be that good old fashioned classic white background, the slight uncomfortable and unnatural poses and so on. It still has its place. I have done them myself! But I like to add a little element of that little bit extra. You want to remember you at that time of the shoot as you were as a family. Fun, full of hope and joy, enjoying each other, remembering in years to come those little ones who have now grown up and causing you all kinds of strife.....I am kidding! No, these shoots are all of that and more. An experience, if you will. Having children of my own and based in Cambridgeshire, I get the importance of capturing yourselves in beautiful surroundings. It's important. I hope you like what you see to think we could all do the same. For the shoot, we can discuss what is the best thing for you and your family to get the best of them and can work out locations, styles etc on consultation. If you would like to know more, please click here to costs and what you get from me and if you would like to book, click here.
