About Nick Grove – Wedding Photographer & Videographer
How I got started
I’ve always worked with images and I love it! I have a BA (hons) degree in Fine Art and still paint and sculpt but don’t really have the time. Before I became a professional photographer I worked as an artist & illustrator. My journey into photography was gradual and natural. As a professional photographer I am completely self-taught. After many years working as a photographer and photographer’s assistant in London I started exclusively photographing weddings in 2004. Initially I worked in the Peterborough, Cambridge and Northampton areas but soon started shooting weddings all over the UK and abroad. I started filming wedding videos in 2010 and now provide both services and offer packages to suit every wedding.
I don’t take many posed photographs and prefer a much more natural approach to wedding photography. Many photographers promote their approach to weddings as natural but I have discovered I am at the extreme end of natural. When I’m photographing a wedding I like to shoot from a distance and keep a very low profile. It’s essential to sometimes get up close and personal and I do this in a discreet and unobtrusive way. I always have two cameras on the ready, work hard, and stay calm. My biggest strength is my understanding of my subject’s emotions and how to make the best use of natural light.
It is with great satisfaction that I can say my personal journey as a wedding photographer and photography in general has been extremely positive. It has taught me a great deal about myself, my abilities, people, business, about self-confidence and about always looking forward, to be better, and to do more. Over the next couple of years I hope to be able to commit the time to producing my best work yet. I am currently working on a short film.
