About me and my photography


Hi I’m Tony and I’ve always loved photography. I have a job that gives me endless satisfaction, because as well as enjoying taking photographs I also get to share one of the happiest days in a couple’s lives. I believe my photographs capture the emotions of the day and I do this mainly using a reportage style of photography, but I also think that family group photographs are important and I ask my couples if they would like to include some on their day as it is often one of the few times when all their family and friends are in the same place; I find a mixture of both works well to give a perfect balance to your wedding photography.

When you receive your photographs you will see moments that you didn’t know happened on the day or you may have seen happen but in all the excitement you had forgotten about; but that is the fun of seeing your photographs afterwards. Your photographs will be your lasting memory of your wedding day long after your guests have gone home and it gives me pleasure and satisfaction to know that I have been part of what is one of the most important days of your life. 

I like to keep the time spent taking formal photographs to a minimum, afterall you are there to enjoy your wedding day. I also love to use natural light; the possibilities for great photographs are endless when you use mother nature as your studio.

Some facts about me: I love athletics and I competed as a pole vaulter; I played golf badly so I gave up; I am a qualified fitness instructor; I have a private pilot’s licence and I love travelling with my wife Val and taking photos of the people I see and meet.  You can see a selection of my photographs on my South East Asia and India travel page. The photograph of me on this page is when I won Master Chef Vietnam, OK it’s not really, it’s Val’s photograph of me doing a Vietnamese cookery course when we visited Hoi An, in central Vietnam. Hoi An is such a beautiful place I would highly recommend you stay a few days if you decide to visit Vietnam.Tony Cullinane 2
