Hey, my name is Stu Tucker
WEDDING, LIFESTYLE & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
I'm Stu and I'm a Bath Wedding Photographer ( yep that's my tag line! ) I have a mission to capture the biggest and brightest moments in people's lives - mainly through wedding photography, but I also have a soft spot for family snaps.
You see, my love for photography started early in my life when I started to document every single moment of my own family's life. I got the bug as a youngster and in my later life decided after running my own catering business - I need to follow my real passion.
As a photographer, my timeless style is a unique trait that sets me apart and defines my brand. This style is characterised by classic, elegant, and natural imagery that transcends time and trends. My commitment to this style is important to me because it represents my artistic vision and helps me create photographs that will stand the test of time. For the couples who book me, my timeless style is also significant because it ensures that their photographs will be cherished for years to come. My approach to photography captures the essence of the moment and highlights the emotions and connections between couples, resulting in photographs that are not only beautiful but also meaningful. In a world where trends come and go, my timeless style of photography ensures that the memories I capture will never go out of style.
A Decade of Experience
Having almost a decade of experience shooting weddings and almost 20 plus years in the hospitality industry has been an essential part of my growth as a photographer. My background in hospitality has taught me the value of excellent customer service and the importance of being able to adapt to any situation. When it comes to photographing weddings, this experience allows me to anticipate the needs of my clients and provide them with a seamless and stress-free experience. My experience in the wedding industry has enabled me to develop a deep understanding of the dynamics of weddings, including the flow of events and the best angles and lighting to capture the perfect shot. For the couples who book me to photograph their wedding, this experience is invaluable as they can trust that I have the knowledge and expertise to capture their special day in the best possible way. Ultimately, my years of experience have made me a better photographer, and I am committed to using this experience to deliver exceptional results to every couple who entrusts me with their wedding day.
I'm also a super lucky fella - I've been my with gorgeous wife, Gemma, for 20 years and married to her for 10 years, together we're raising our two little buties, Jude and Kye, 7 and 1 years old! Completely winging parenting but who isn’t! Oh, and in case you're wondering, yes, I’m defiantly punching with Gemma, but shh... don't tell her I said that! Haha! You can find some of our escapades here - there's a bunch of video's I make of us being a family!
I live just outside Bath, my father was from Bath and we have generations spread back centuries there!
As a wedding photographer, I've captured countless moments for hundreds of couples and family events over the years. I believe that it's the people, not the place, that make's a photo truly special! I also have a passion for landscape photography, but nothing truly compares to my love of taking photos of people at their best in life, and yes to be honest sometimes at their worse. Life wouldn't be life without light and shade.
I've always been a creative soul, dabbling in various art forms like food, music, photography and film. I love connecting with people through my passions and I bring that same honesty and real-life approach to my business.
To be honest, If you're looking for a wedding photographer who won't spend the entire day setting up posed shots for Instagram, dancing to silly reels on TikTok or insta, but who will capture the real, raw moments that make your day truly unique, then I'm your guy. My unobtrusive style requires a little participation from you and your partner, but trust me, it'll result in photos that truly pop!
I have never like over-editing my wedding photos, for the sake of a portfolio. I have a natural editing style that takes into consideration the day, season, and venue, so your photos will look just as beautiful in 10 years as they do today.
You won't find me at wedding fairs trying to sell my services with a hard pitch. I also am not getting paid by any venues that take a cut when they recommend a photographer! ( Yup that’s shit is real! What the hell is that all about) I let my work speak for itself and if you're feeling it, great! If not, that's okay too. Just check out my social media and portfolios to see more of my work, and please feel free to reach out with any questions about how I can help capture your special day. You can find a bunch of FAQ on this page
To me, photography is about capturing more than just an image. It's about understanding people, emotions, and the interactions people have with each other. Someday, our memories will be all we have left, something that is very true to my heart after loosing my father back in the spring of 2022. I want to make sure that others are able to hire me to capture their most precious time in their life, in the most beautiful and genuine way possible.
