About Me

Simon Booth

Im a Hastings, East Sussex based photographer, and Ive been taking photos for the last 25 years. Whilst Im interested in many forms of photography, professionally, I specialise in weddings and portrait photography. I see wedding photography as an extension of portrait photography, since its mostly about capturing the people and the emotions, and this is something I have always loved doing.

I would describe my style of Wedding Photography as Reportage - natural, relaxed, candid shots. My approach is to mostly use long lenses, so I can photograph people from a discreet distance, without them being aware of being photographed. This has the benefit of being unobtrusive, as well as capturing them being themselves; often these images are far more striking and interesting than posed shots, a natural smile or laugh is always better than a posed one. I always take my time doing some classic 'Bride and Groom' shots, but prefer to take the couple away from the guests for a few minutes, so they dont feel self conscious when doing these very important shots, and to give them some private moments together on their big day.
