How do you do photo and video at the same time?!

On very small weddings during the pandemic, I started making short video clips in between photos. This was initially a surprise highlight video for people who had barely any guests present and weren't allowed a videographer etc. It has grown into a method that my assistant shooter uses also. Ben and myself take photos and videos all day, two people leaving your wedding with the content equivalent of two videographers and two photographers.

What is the benefit of having photo & video with you rather than a different supplier?

We don't get in each other's way spoiling shots. We take half as long with any video or photoshoot moments like the couple shoot. We don't get in your way (there's two of us instead of four). We can light a dance floor or speeches the best way for photos & videos, maintaining the ambience. Pricing less than two separate companies. I can keep going!

Will you go completely unnoticed or are you a huge personality?

My aim is to be a quiet guest at your wedding. Shooting from the inside out. Of course, I will be noticed when leading the group photos and when we are on the couple shoot. It always comes down to you, the couple how much involvement I have in your day!

Why do you shoot weddings, aren't they stressful and hard work?!

The thrill. There is no buzz like it. It's just not the same as taking a photo of a product or a river. When it makes someone feel something - it makes me feel amazing. I am blessed to be able to do this for work and support my family from my passion. Yes, weddings are probably the most stressful type of photography and some weddings can be wild! But this is why it just doesn't get boring!


Where do I even begin… You book your special day and start looking at booking a photographer. You start looking through all of the options and the pictures that I had seen just didn’t feel right, they were beautiful pictures but I just couldn’t imagine us in the pictures. Then I randomly came across Lewis Cannon when I was really starting to feel stressed out about it. I spent about an hour just in awe of his talent and creativity. I just knew. Lewis was the one person that we needed for photography! After a few conversations between us, I was 10000% sure he was the right man for the job. We had a few conversations about how the day was going to go and he asked if there were any requests for special pictures that we wanted. By this point and by looking at all of his pictures, I just knew I could trust him to capture the day perfectly and just trust the process. And by gosh, I am eternally thankful I did because every single picture is stunning. He really did just feel like one of the guests who was supposed to be there. Lewis is beyond talented with a camera, creative and just knows how to get the perfect pictures while making it a fun experience. Our day just wouldn’t have been the same without him there and now thanks to Lewis we will forever have the most beautiful pictures to look back on and smile every time we see them. I just wish we could relive the day over again. Forever grateful to have had you be apart of our day.

I think picking a photographer could be as big a deal as picking the wedding dress itself, and let me tell you - picking Lewis for our special day was hands down the best decision we made for our entire wedding. It was important to us to have a photographer who could have a laugh, be down to earth and blend into our wedding as if a guest themselves and Lewis met every single one. So many guests commented on how awesome he is, and how they would love him as their photographer. From the moment Lewis arrived in the morning, he was on the go and he respected every single wish we had for our photos. He never stops and when he wasn’t with the groom and I, he was with our guests making sure we also got memories of them to cherish. It got to a point in the evening when we had to tell Lewis to go home, he had been on his feet all day and deserved to call it a day but he just wanted to ensure we got every single photo we wanted. Our photos are exactly what I wanted and look so professional but don’t feel too staged/forced. Lewis actually deserves more than 5 stars in my opinion and if you are thinking of booking him, just do it.. there will not be a single regret. Amazing photographer and amazing photos!!

A really successful service all around. It started with an uncomplicated preliminary discussion via a video call. His suggestions were always great. All the time, Lewis brought a large portion of good humour with him. It was just incredibly pleasant to work with him and to enjoy the day and the photo shoot in a relaxed way. Lewis had some equipment with him to take some fancy photos we just love! We wouldn't have done such great photos without his idea. The day after the wedding we got the first 10 edited pictures and a few weeks later all the others. We are totally in love with the photos and how the atmosphere was captured.

Lewis spent the whole day with us on our wedding day and the results have been just incredible. The pictures & video are amazing and completely beyond what we expected. Lewis is such a nice guy and was super excited which added to our newlywed excitement. Would 100% recommend Lewis to capture your special occasion, he will put you at ease whilst capturing all the special moments of the day. Top job.

Lewis is an outstanding photographer and an all-around great guy! He made us both feel so comfortable on our wedding day and we are so ecstatic about the photos he took for us. We are from the USA and decided to elope in Scotland. Lewis was so easy to work with from overseas and really helped our day go smoothly. He helped us find our first look, ceremony and post-ceremony photo locations and was also willing to drive us around to get to each location. He has a great eye for getting the best photos and was also very open to taking shots that we requested. I could not recommend Lewis any higher, and we cannot wait to work with him again in the future!
