Hi, I'm Jon and I have been working as a wedding photographer since 2006, after more than 20 years working as a newspaper photographer on both the regional, national and international press. I take great pride in offering a top quality wedding photography service, telling the story of your day as it happens, rather than directing it.
Since launching Newton Photography I have captured weddings across Derbyshire and the rest of the East Midlands including Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. No two weddings are ever the same which is why I always offer versatility to all my couples, I can tailor-make coverage to suit your big day.
I describe my style as storytelling in pictures and I aim to be discreet and creative, documenting your day as naturally and unobtrusively as possible. I strive to capture the emotion and events as they happen, rather than staging them. Of course a few group shots are important but it’s often the small things, those intimate or funny moments that not everyone sees, that helps create a set of photographs my couples will treasure forever.
Choosing the right wedding photographer is no mean feat and it’s one of the most important decisions you’ll make. He or she will be with you for the main part of the day - if not all day - so you need to be comfortable and completely at ease with the person you choose. Some of my clients report that they forgot I was even there, which is exactly how it should be!
I feel privileged to work in some of the best wedding venues in the country and my location in the heart of the Midlands means almost anywhere in the UK is easily accessible. But the best part of the job is being a very small part of a couple’s most special day and I never under estimate how important that is.
Whether you are planning a small intimate occasion or a more lavish celebration, I pride myself on capturing the very essence of your special day. I hope the photographs on the next few pages of my website speak for themselves.
