If people knew how hard I worked to get my mastery, it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all.
I have been photographing weddings since 2003 and can honestly say I really enjoy it. Wedding photography is less something I do and more something I am.
I approach each wedding with the care and attention that it deserves and view it as a great responsibility. Entrust your wedding to me and I will check, check and double-check. It's not the sort of job you can have an unproductive or a bad day at the office. Every day it is somebodies big day!
I got into photography as a young boy and wedding photography in 2003.
In addition to photography I enjoy keeping fit, competitive dancing and the Air Cadets where I volunteer as a Sergeant in my local squadron.
Photographically, I'm dam good at what I do. I am always refining my style and approach after reviewing each project.
I love what I do, it's infectious. You never get an 'another day at the office' vibe from me, I want to be there!
Life is all about connections. To capture real emotions and smiles I need to be immersed in your day, shooting from an inside perspective, not as a bystander looking upon it.
From the initial booking through to providing your album at the end. People often think I have lightning fast reflexes, truth is I'm constantly anticipating based on years of experience and a plan!
I remain conscious of your time and always aim to run to schedule. I have a fantastic hit ratio in this area. Naturally I need you and your guests co-operation too, but I have a way of politely moving things along to keep your wedding timetable on track!
Your wedding is not just about your photography, I appreciate you also want to have fun! Happy, relaxed, just the right amount of direction to keep things on schedule and lots of laughter is my personal recipe for wedding photography success.
Due to being part of a large dance school we often need a photographer. We run social and competitive events where parents may not be able to capture as many of the special moments as they would like with the quality they want. We have used Brian Parkes Photography on many occasions now and have only ever found his photos to be of the highest quality - capturing not only the still photos but some great action shots also. Not only this, he is a very personable character and has been very accommodating to all our needs. I would highly recommend using his services for any event. Cara Donaldson
Wow! What an amazing photographer. Brian always captures those special moments perfectly. I would highly recommend Brian to any one. Steff Harding
Brilliant pictures, Brian really captures the moment perfectly Claire Thomson
