Dean Jones Photography - Hereford wedding photographer

How did I become a wedding photographer?

This photography thing was a long term hobby that has turned into the best job ever! I started off shooting landscapes as a hobby then ended up selling prints in a local gallery. I always said I would never photograph people, eventually though I moved into studio photography. I had my own studio in Hereford; there I shot family portraits and model portfolios. It was good fun but I missed the outdoors and ever changing light. The inevitable requests came to photograph friends weddings and eventually I decided to shoot one friends wedding in 2010. After this wedding, I knew that this is the place I wanted to be. It felt great to have so many different situations to capture in one day. So, in 2011 I shot my first wedding as a professional and closed my studio shortly after to concentrate solely on wedding photography.

I love everything about wedding photography, the fun, the energy and yes the stress too. Now having shot over 200 weddings, I still have that same love of weddings and look forward to challenging myself more every year.

A few words about me.

I have sat here staring at the screen trying to think of something to say about me. This is hard for me as I can tell a story with photographs, but ask me to write something and I go blank. I am determined to give you something though, so here goes.

I love photogra……you already know that right? Ok take 2.

  • I am married to Coleen who is also my best friend and we have 3 children who are all unique but equally amazing.
  • We live in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside, away from the hustle and bustle, surrounded by open fields.
  • We have two dogs, Hugo the Labradoodle and Honey the thingy. I have no idea what breed Honey is, (she was brought home by Coleen after telling me she was going to get a table) but she and Hugo are the best of friends and a constant source of entertainment.
  • I like most sports apart from cricket…I used to play a lot of sports but now just do things to keep fit like Crossfit etc – entered the Crossfit open this year, google it, it’s tough.
  • I play guitar, electric and acoustic and used to be in a band, not a famous one so you won’t want my autograph.
  • To relax I like to watch comedians, Micky Flanagan and Lee Mack are my favourites and Mock the week is my favourite TV show.
