Nattie & Paul Norris

“Can’t thank John enough for all he did on our wedding day in respect of the photos and his calming presence on the day. From the time we first met and had our ‘pre wedding shoot’ we felt so comfortable with John and his laid back nature which was a very important factor for us as my fiancé HATES having his photo taken normally! However, John managed to make him feel at ease and capture us at our most natural which from the photos we have seen already radiates from them. 100% recommended to anyone getting married! Thank you again John, Mr and Mrs Norris xx”


Olivia & Matt King

“Would highly recommend John Adams he put us and our guests at ease, lovely guy. Amazing photos with such a quick turnaround. Photo album was a lovely touch with great quality photos.”


Laura & Mark

“Lovely photographer captured our day perfectly with both candid and more formal shots providing us an amazing record of our day! He made us feel like it was a joy for him and not a just a job like some photographers! Thank you John!”


Katherine & Shaun Callow

“Thank you for the amazing photos you have sent through so far! Would highly recommend John as a photographer, but also an all round really nice person who is professional and polite!”


Stuart & Kathy Blackburne

“We called John after a search on the internet for a wedding photographer in Milton Keynes. I’m not going to lie I thought I’d have to call a few before I would be happy and choose from a few but after a chat with John I was really happy with what he had planned. I didn’t even call another photographer and he agreed to meet me the same weekend to get to know us and what we like. He was very professional and went above and beyond to help on the day and get exactly what we wanted. I couldn’t recommend John any higher as he was perfect for me and my wife. He got all the photos to us promptly and the wedding album is exactly what we wanted. Thanks John and Aiden for making our day perfect. You’re great at what you do.”


John & Emmy Fillon-Payoux

“John really added value to our wedding, his eye for detail caught some amazing shots. All of our geusts commented on how cheerful and professional he was. His easy nature getting the best out of people from all ages and making the best wedding photos we could have asked for. For just a little extra he created an album that was second to none where the pages were the photos. Neither I or my wife can recommend John highly enough nor thank him enough for adding to and recording our perfect day.”


Karen & Terry

“We cannot recommend John enough. We were so happy with our wedding photos. He is very professional and his creative ideas are just outstanding. Also his manner is extremely friendly and calming. The wedding album he put together is amazing. Our guest were so impressed with him. I’m so glad we found John, he is a perfect wedding photographer, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much John.”

Nicole & Phil Phillips

“Thank you so much John, you made us feel comfortable for the memorable pre-shoot, we have an amazing canvas that everyone loves and comments on. You then saw the job through in a totally professional way on our wedding day, it was dreary and rained all day but you made us feel happy and very comfortable again and took some beautiful pictures inside and outside the church. You then covered the evening reception perfectly and everyone loves the photos. Very thankful and pleased, would recommend you 100%!”

Gemma & Jimmy Jones

“John photographed our wedding in June, I can not describe how happy we were with the level if professionalism John showed throughout the whole process. Right from the word go John was sharing his creative ideas and taking on board the requests we had in regards to specific photos. We would and have recommended John’s services. Not only is he professional but extremely efficient. We had our digital photos 7 days after getting married and our album 2 weeks later!! Thank you so much John!! Gemma and Jim Jones 04/06”

To give you a good idea of what to expect of me, I have compiled a list of what happens on a typical wedding day.

About John Adams Wedding Photography

John Adams is a very experienced photographer covering Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, London, and pretty much the whole of the UK and beyond. With over thirty years experience, I have a laid back and friendly attitude enabling an alternative style of wedding photography to capture your big day. My attitude and relaxed style is ideal for those who may not be comfortable in front of the camera at all or for several hours at a time. I will engage directly with you and obtain the best possible photographs by making you smile and laugh naturally and most importantly building your confidence throughout the entire day. My strengths are in candid, and unobtrusive shots, for most of the time you and your guests will not notice my presence and that type of candid photography often produces the best photos of the day and allows everyone to feel at ease on one of the biggest days of your lives. From vintage weddings through to modern weddings, photographed in the exact style that you prefer, I will be there for you from bridal prep through to the end of the night. I will create wedding images that are unique to you, based on your personalities and those around you, you can then enjoy those images for years to come. I will capture your day as a photo journal from start to finish. Your photos will be individually processed and enhanced ensuring that the end product will exceed your expectations.


Yes you will own them outright.

They have my name and logo in the bottom right hand corner in small print, hardly noticeable, this can be removed for any enlargements or canvas if preferred. They are not watermarked in the centre.

Normally held at the venue when possible, most importantly we get to know each other and discuss your exact requirements, must have shots, group photo lists etc. You will also get some professional photos for an intro to your album. Usually casually dressed or formal if you prefer, these tend to be fun photos, there are many examples if you scroll down on the homepage.

In the very unlikely event of the photos going missing, data card error, camera being stolen etc (this has never happened!), I have personal and public liability insurance of up to two million pounds. In the worst possible case we do the whole wedding again.

I use the latest Canon technology available with the best Canon lenses. Main camera is 5DS at 50 megapixels, second camera is 6D 20 megapixels, the best camera for low light situations. Lenses are all Canon, 85mm 1.2, the best portrait lens there is, 24 – 70 mm 2.8 MkII known as the first zoom to be as sharp as primes. The 70-200 2.8 zoom, very sharp and ideal for candid unobtrusive photography.

I ask for a £100 deposit to book the wedding day with the remainder payable two weeks before the wedding or earlier if you wish, bank transfer is the preferred method of payment or cash if you prefer.

I have been a photographer for over 20 years now and shoot in the region of thirty weddings a year. I attend regular workshops by some of the UK’s best known Photographers to keep up with technology and contemporary ideas in all areas.

Compared to some photographers I could be regarded as cheap for what you get but I would rather be out photographing more weddings and thoroughly enjoying what I do rather than quoting unrealistic prices.

I charge roughly 50% of some photographers and do not limit my time or number of photos and you are free to print your own photos with no restrictions. You also will receive three sets of photos on DVD or memory stick, colour, monochrome and retro pastel. Your photos will be shot through the latest cameras and lenses totalling more than £12,000. For the all inclusive package you will receive a 30 page album containing up to 100 of your favourite photos and you get to choose them.

I will travel to most parts of the UK mainland but only for the all inclusive package price. I have been to Yorkshire, Kent, Essex, Warwickshire, Avon & West Country, Wales and Scotland would be no problem.

Yes I do have public liability insurance with cover up to £2,000,000.
