Professional Photographer | Brett Symes

about Brett



Hi there, I’m Brett, I am a Wedding Photographer. I live in Bristol (with my three crazy kids and my beautiful wife), photographing weddings throughout the UK and sometime abroad.

Curiosity is as the heart of what I do…well that mixed with a persistent creative itch that I need to scratch.  Wedding photography is the perfect medium to satisfy my love and curiosity of people and at the same time provide an outlet for my visual creativity.

“I have no special talent.  I am only passionately curious”

Albert Einstein


I would be the first person to admit that I’m not your traditional wedding photographer.  Typically the couples who book me are not looking for and don’t want traditional wedding photography. That doesn’t mean that I don’t document all the keys moments throughout the day (and yes I do still take group photos if you want them) but it’s the moments in-between these more obvious moments that I especially love and feel tell the real story of your day.

I love visual storytelling, the stories told within a single frame and the broader stories told through multiple pictures over the course of a day.  It’s thrilling to be able to preserve these stories through my photography.  I’m genuinely honoured that in photographing a couple’s wedding I get the opportunity to be their family historian for a day and understand the responsibility that goes with that.

There’s a lot of talk about different wedding photography ‘styles’.  I honestly don’t know what style of photography best describes what I do. I always aim to create photographs that are:

NaturalI want to capture genuine, real and enduring moments

RelaxedI hope to capture your day in all its glory as it naturally unfolds

BeautifulI want to take beautiful pictures of friends, family and loved ones to treasure forever


If any of this strikes a chord with you and what are looking for in your wedding photography then I would love to hear from you
