Hello, my name is Adam Lowndes and I am a modern wedding photographer based in Staffordshire. I grew up here and love it so much that I have now decided to stick around. My central location has enabled me to cover weddings all over the UK, so even if you are getting married in Devon or Northumberland then I’d love to hear from you!
On my 9th birthday I got my first Kodak camera, which began my fascination with photography. Just like everybody else, I had a dream about what I wanted to achieve in life and for many years I opted for the “sensible path”. After realising I wasn’t happy I decided to chase my dream and become a full time wedding photographer. I have always been a storyteller and a dreamer; I love retelling tales and imagining hypotheticals. My photography captures the many highs and lows of life enabling me to piece together captivating stories. To look at some of my personal work click here.
The connection between a photographer (myself) and the couple (hopefully you) should never be undervalued. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone I wouldn’t call a friend afterwards. It’s important to me that you feel the same way.
As a teenager I spent many hours watching romantic cinema including Garden State, Lost in Translation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Cinema Paradiso etc. Although my mind has been heavily corrupted by the amount of Zach Braff I have endured, I have always been a hopeless romantic at heart. In somewhat of a crazy moment, I decided to drive almost 2 hours to meet a girl that I hardly knew. Several incredible years later we now share a sausage dog and a home together. I think things are going pretty well.

Both mine and Sarah’s families are also based in Staffordshire and this has been a big influence on our decision to stay local. Family is everything to me and they have been the driving force behind my decision to pursue being a photographer as a full time venture.

My daily life consists of being asked “Adam, how tall are you?” (6ft,7), watching A LOT of cinema, walking Juno my miniature dachshund, enhancing my culinary prowess, hacking at my garden in the hope that it flourishes, exploring my masculinity by drilling excessive holes in my walls for whatever reason I can find, wishing I could play the piano like Sufjan Stevens, listening to Sufjan Stevens AND drinking rum. If you would like to talk about your wedding plans then I would love to chat more. You can contact me here.
