Staffordshire Wedding Photographer Adam Lowndes

Hey! I’m Adam.

I live in the heart of the Potteries (Stoke-on-Trent) with Cera my fiancée and our miniature dachshund, Juno. I’m not a certified giant but will make most people look small at 6ft 7″. I’m super energetic and positive almost all of the time. I love a lot of things but films and music are my most cherished.

Into The Wild

“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

Chris McCandless aka Alexander Supertramp

My Love Story

And that Juno is how I met your mother.

As a teenager I spent many hours watching romantic cinema including Garden State, Lost in Translation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Cinema Paradiso to name a few. 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 a somewhat impromptu moment, I decided to drive almost 2 hours to meet a girl I hardly knew. Several incredible and testing years later we now share a miniature dachshund (sausage dog) and a home together.

As well as having our own interests, we share a common love for Disney/Pixar films and singing our favourite musical hits together.

She said “yes” in early 2019 and now we’re planning our own special day. I’m finding it very strange being on the other side.

My Journey to Become a Wedding Photographer

People are often curious about how I ended up doing such a incredible job. To be honest it’s been on the cards for a long time. You see I’ve always been a creative person. On my 9th birthday I received my first camera. I had no idea this was the start of a love affair that would go on to become a lifelong passion. In my teenage years I was embedded in the local music and skateboard scene. This served as a great source of imagery and inspiration for my work, building a foundation to practice my art regularly.

In 2009 I had an amazing opportunity to go to America and work for the whole Summer as a Photographer at a Jewish sports camp. I went with an ego so big that I was surprised it even fit on the plane. Needless to say I came back firmly in my place having learnt more about myself and photography in 10 weeks than I had in the previous 10 years.

The following year my sister asked me to take the photographs at her wedding. I recruited two friends to share the load of the day and we formed the first and only photography trio I have ever seen at a wedding. The photographs were a massive success and the wedding photography bug had firmly bitten me.

Fast forward to present day and I’m now a full-time wedding photographer shooting weddings all over the UK. To say I’m happy with the way my life has panned out is an understatement. Although I’ve come this far I’ve never lost touch with my original passion for photography and still take photographs for fun. Self development is something I’m constantly thinking about. I spend a lot of time changing and developing all aspects of my work to constantly bring an overall better experience to my couples.

Getting on is Key

Do I sound like the kind of person you’d get on with?
