Welcome to Craig Howkins Photography
Hello, I am Craig and I am a wedding photographer based in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire, covering the UK and abroad.
First of all, congratulations on your engagement! A wedding is such an exciting and treasured event in everyone's life. With so many excellent photographers out there, it can be a challenge to find the perfect one.
The first challenge is to find a photographer whose style you like. Thank you for taking your time to have a look at my website and my work. I describe my photography style as modern and relaxed and I aim to achieve a perfect mix of documentary, candid, couple and family photos and all the little lovely details of your special day.
The second challenge is to find a photographer you click with and you feel comfortable around. After all, you will spent one of the most important days of your lives with the photographer.
I would love to hear from you to discuss your wedding plans, so please do get in touch.
I simply love weddings because they are full of joy and happiness. The unique moments I capture during wedding days are memories for the rest of your life. It gives me so much pride to be able to preserve all these joyful, exciting, sometimes nervous moments of a wedding day, so when you look at the photos later, you will be immediately transported back to your big day.
It is an honour to be part of any wedding day and I am absolutely devoted in making all my couples happy. This commitment does not only last for the wedding day itself and the photos, I am there for you long before and after the wedding, to help you with the even smallest detail and to make sure I get everything you want.
You can find some of my work in my Portfolio.
What my couples are saying
KATIE & LAWRENCE
I have sat down to attempt to write this a couple of times & not because I didn't have anything to say, the complete opposite actually, there are too many good things & I always thought I'd end up rambling on for hours! But, I am going to do this to the point -
Having owned my own photography company a few years ago & my myself have a passion for photography so I knew that when it came to myself getting married I would want THE BEST wedding photographer to capture my special day. My Husband & I met a couple of photographers, who were nice but just didn't have the wow factor I was looking for! Then arrived Craig, he was full of confidence, professional but also oozed character & personality from the off! Just from the first 5 minutes, I knew he was the one I wanted & my Husband also agreed.
Leading up to the wedding Craig was in touch often, checking on plans & making me feel at ease knowing he had it all under control. On the day he was absolutely mind-blowing, directed everyone & captured the shots as per several conversations about the vision of photography we both wanted. He did all this & more! He even sent our wedding pictures to Australia as we emigrated shortly after getting married & even sent us a Christmas card. Craig is awesome, his pictures are awesome & he was very affordable! What is there not to love?!
Thank you so much Craig, we both really appreciate your hard work & love for photography & so glad you captured our big day for us!!
Love the James-Beatsonbells!
I was born and raised in Northamptonshire in a quaint little town surrounded by lovely villages. Early on I have discovered my passion for photography as a creative way to express myself and share what I see with other people.
After studying Photography and Art and Design at the Northampton College, I worked as a Photographer for big British retail companies. However, this has not been fulfilling for me and I started to travel for several years.
I love looking at the photos I took during my travels: of the different countries I've visited and lived in, the cultures I got to know and of course of the people I have met on my journeys. This showed me the importance of photography as a way to preserve memories.
A common saying is “A photo can say more than a thousands words”. I think it can do much more. It can bring back memories of an event long gone and make you re-live this moment. Exactly this is what I want to achieve with my photography:
Capturing your special moments with all their emotions and the story behind them, so you can remember and cherish them forever.
