Meet Supplier Member – Fazackarley Wedding Photographer

Wedding Supplier Photographer

Thrilled to be able to introduce you with one of our Supplier members Fazackarley Wedding Photographer, tell us about yourself Simon…


Tell us about your journey into weddings?

I’ve always been a creative soul and have always loved photography. Whilst finishing up my university studies, on route to becoming a Graphic Designer, a friend asked me to photograph his wedding. Certainly not something I’d ever considered, being a shy individual – who up until that point exclusively photographed inanimate objects. I eventually accepted the gig as a bit of fun, and a fresh challenge and their wedding led onto many more enquiries and before I realised it, I’d become a wedding photographer! Honestly, the job found me – but I can’t imagine anything I’d rather be doing some 14 years later. I love that every wedding is a different challenge and I’d love to be still doing it in 14 more years.

Describe your favourite wedding location (beach / city / country)

I’m a country kind of guy, when we’re not shooting weddings we’re usually out in nature exploring the countryside or getting muddy in forests – so any wedding that brings me closer to nature is great. But I don’t really have a favourite – every wedding and wedding location has something unique. It’s always the people that make for a special day over the location, but great people in a great location is hard to beat.

Ultimate wedding theme you’d love to be a part of

Gosh, that’s a tough one! I love any wedding that has a real sense of personality – something that captures who the couple are and what they’re about. I’m deeply curious about humans and their stories – so any wedding that has an interesting way of communicating someone’s personality visually is hugely exciting to me. Outside of weddings I’m a huge fan of Ice Hockey and the National Hockey League, so It’s not really a theme, but I’d love to be a part of an NHL players wedding.

What 3 words would clients use to describe you?

Relaxed, Creative and (I hope!) Helpful

How do you unwind?

Movies. I love watching all kinds of films from big Hollywood blockbusters to inspirational, arty films. Since the birth of my daughter I’ve also found a love for Disney movies – don’t tell my 14 year old self though.

Best piece of business advice given?

Stop looking at the competition – focus on what you can do better for you and your clients and everything else will fall into place.

Tell us something random about you

I have an extensive collection of hats for the baseball team the San Fransisco Giants – but have zero interest in baseball – in fact, I’ve never seen a game. I just love the ‘SF’ logo as it matches my initials.
