This week we wanted to sing the praises of our incredible in house photographer – Philip James. Now of course, having chosen to make this man my husband (how could I let talent like that escape me!) I am slightly biased, but not without justification…
Phil has been welded to his camera for more years than I care to think about, and since choosing to pursue wedding photography as the focus for his craft, he has been continually building his portfolio of happy couples and incredible images. You can see his full portfolio here.
And should you be introduced to Phil whilst planning your wedding, make sure you don’t lose his details as he is frequently commissioned for family shoots and christening photography and loves the opportunity to document the growth of a family.
Being owners of both a wedding dress boutique and wedding photography business, I believe gives us both a greater understanding of the industry as a whole. As a wedding dress supplier, your journey with the bride ends with the safe delivery of the perfect gown for the biggest day of her life. As a wedding photographer you see past that point and through to the very climax of what can sometimes be years of planning. As a married couple we see and experience both sides through each other and that hopefully results in a more empathetic relationship with our clients.
Any of the brides that purchase their dress from Lisa Rose Bridal also qualify for a free engagement shoot with Phil, which is the perfect way to get to know your wedding photographer. Allowing you to develop the relationship so that you are 100% comfortable with them on ‘W’ day, and ensure that you all understand exactly what it is you’re hoping for from the photographer; and feel confident that they can deliver.
We have had many a bride use the services of both Lisa Rose Bridal and Philip James Photography and we can proudly say they have all been more than happy with the service and results from both! Here are a few of ‘our brides’…

Having recently got married myself, I know from personal as well as from professional experience, that to be comfortable with your photographer is worth its absolute weight in gold. Of course the photographer needs to be technically and creatively able, but if you are not comfortable in their company, you will never capture the true essence of your day… and for that to happen, would be an incredible shame.
We would love the opportunity to sit down with you and discuss your wedding dress desires as well as introduce you to the wonderful Philip James Photography, please do get in touch and make an appointment now, we would love the opportunity to share this truly magical journey with you!
