Life is all about moments. Your wedding day will be full of them. Documenting these is my passion.
I’m Rafe, and I live in the beautiful Hertfordshire market town of Hitchin. I photograph weddings because I love creating art during the most important day of peoples lives. I love the positivity, I love the creativity, and I love my couples.
I ask my clients for full access to their day. For this to work, I need your full trust on the day. Once I know your wedding day plan, just roll me out there and I will do my thing. I am not a record photographer who just shoots what's happening; I take time to anticipate moments and try and perfect the composition of each shot to give you the best image possible for each situation. The results are stunning natural moments captured without you and your guests even realising it. I shoot weddings how they are, in a photo journalistic fashion, yet despite this we will shoot the family groups for Gran, and the bride & groom portraits because I love making you both look sexy.
I take immense pride from a job well done and set my own performance standards high to ensure I over-deliver on expectations. I've been trained by some of the world's best wedding photographers, because that's where I strive to be and I won't settle for just being 'good'. But hey, don't just take my word for it. Check out what these LOVELY PEOPLE said about me!
Here are a few principles I stand by with regards to my business:
Enthusiasm and fun
Maximizing the opportunity to create art at every wedding I shoot
Making friends along the way
I even have some of the finest wedding venues in the country recommending me to their clients. These include:
Smashing The Glass (Jewish Wedding Blog) South Farm, Royston The Barns at Redcoats, Hitchin Bassmead Manor Barns, St Neots Moor Park, Rickmansworth The Priory Barn, Hitchin Essendon Country Club Kings College, Cambridge The Barn at Alswick, Buntingford Huntsmill Farm, Bucks Offley Place, Hitchin
On top of this all I now offer a Videography package within my brand, captured beautifully my long time Rafe Abrook Photography affiliate, Michael Gallagher. An example of his work can be viewed on my LINKS page.
So let’s MEET UP - I want you to trust me implicitly with your photography, and that trust needs to be earned by getting to know one another.
