About Peter Flowers Photography
Hello, I’m Peter and I’m originally from Cookham, a small picturesque village in Berkshire. I moved to Bicester several years ago and share a house with my wonderful wife Natasha, daughter Bethany and our four legged hound Sadie. We have a couple of horses in the family, but they don’t fit into our humble little home, instead they reside at the stables down the road (thankfully, could you imagine the smell?! phew!).
I’ve had a passion for photography for many years and have spent a long time photographing equestrian events around the UK. I have to blame this on my wife; she is the rider in the family. Although I’ve had riding lessons I still can’t find the brake pedal when I need it. I tend to stay grounded with my camera, it’s much safer.
I started shooting weddings back in 2010 and haven’t looked back. I started the way many photographers do, shooting friends weddings, assisting and shooting with other professionals at every opportunity. This allowed me to find my feet in the world of weddings and to let me find my own style of shooting.
Most weekends during the summer are solid with weddings, either my own bookings or assisting others, but if I’m not in wedding mode then there is a good chance I’ll be charging around the local soft play centre with my little girl and having some well earned family time.
Put a face to the name:
(I don’t really like having my own photo taken so I can empathise with a lot of my clients when I point a camera at them. )
So that’s a little about me and my life, but how am I going to treat you if you decided to contact me about your wedding?
When it comes to dealing with my clients, they come first. Once a date is in my diary, I will work everything else around it. I limit myself to a certain number of weddings a year, which allows me to deal with my clients requirements without rushing and it also lets me keep a healthy balanced home life too! A happy photographer will do a good job; a stressed photographer who takes on too much won’t give you the results you deserve.
I don’t skimp on equipment, all my cameras are full frame Nikon DSLRs and I use professional grade lenses to capture shots in the darkest of churches. I carry spare cameras, lenses, lights and batteries so there is no excuse for equipment failure. Plus, if I fall over and break my arm (lets hope not!) I can find coverage from a trusted group of photographers very easily. Fortunately I don’t make a habit of breaking my limbs as I’ve not missed a single appointment so far!
I aim to provide a professional service to every client at an affordable price as I know it’s very easy to over spend on your wedding budget!
I hope my Prices are easy to understand, I do make every effort to keep things simple, by starting with the very basics of me shooting your whole day and you selecting any extras you might require.
I am more than happy to come for an informal chat one weekend or evening and I promise no awkward sales pitch!
