I’m passionate about creative wedding photography!

Welcome to Craig Hickey Photography

Here’s a little bit about me…

I live in a small village in Leicestershire, close to the border of Nottinghamshire with my partner Kelly and my two beautiful daughters. Being behind the camera whenever possible is what I love most as it gives me the opportunity to expand my creativity. I enjoy putting a young, fresh spin on capturing moments to tell a story of how I perceive them.

Every photographer has a style. I’d describe mine as alternative, vibrant and emotive. I always endeavour to capture the story of your day and the essence of your personalities through my creative wedding photography.

I have had a passion for creative wedding photography since a young age, and through hard work and commitment, I’ve been lucky enough to make a career out of what I love to do. Please take a look at my testimonials to see what my clients say about my work or contact me directly on 07980 743195.

Finally, keep up to date on social media!

Bridal Suite

This is the start of your story, so it’s important to set the tone for the day. We’ll be there to catch those enthusing moments of you and your bridesmaids getting ready whilst cracking open that bottle of bubbly.

Groom photos

One of the advantages of having a second photographer is we can be in two places at once! We’ll capture the groom and his groomsmen getting ready, whether they’re at home, at a hotel or down the local pub settling the nerves.

Ceremony

The big one. This is potentially the most important part of your day, we’ll be there to capture every unmissable moment. From the bride walking down the isle, the ring exchange to the first kiss, don’t fret – we’ve got you covered.

Candid

We’re in our element when you let your hair down. We love this part of the day when you, friends and family get into party mode. We will catch those spontaneous candid shots to give you a blend of beautiful pictures that tell a fuller story.

Family photos

We’re an easy going bunch, so for us this part of the day is down to you. Family photos can be as formal or informal as you please. Saying that, we do recommend you pose for some casual snaps with your close family and friends.

What clients say

  • We are so happy with the photos Craig has taken of our special day, they are absolutely beautiful and all of our friends and family have commented on such a good job.

    Craig made us feel very comfortable and relaxed from the beginning, and we had a lot of fun on the day! We would also recommend having a second photographer, as he really helped to capture everything and everyone on our day – we loved that we had photos of both of us getting ready before the ceremony. We really feel that Craig understood what we wanted, and we now have wonderful, happy memories to look back on. Thank you for all of your hard work!

  • What a fantastic and professional service, thank you Craig and team from the initial consultation to our big day you were great. Craig is so relaxed we almost forgot he was there! The photographs were beyond what we expected. Highly recommended

    Coriena & Jon
  • Loved all of our wedding photos, so many stunning shots, a lot of which we didn’t realise were being taken at the time! Craig and his second photographer were an awesome team and worked really hard to capture all the best moments from our day. Can’t recommend them highly enough – thanks guys!!

    Joel & Jaime-Leigh
  • We are really happy we chose Craig as our wedding photographer! We are so pleased with the lovely photos he has produced but also found his presence on the day to be perfect. He took everything we wanted (and plenty we had not noticed him taking that we love) without ever interrupting the flow of the day. Easy to communicate with leading up to the day and his prices are definitely competitive.

    Alex & Suzie
  • Craig helped capture all the special moments on our day. He did an amazing job and helped the day go really smoothly and made us feel so relaxed. The photos were absolutely STUNNING. We can also highly recommend having the 2nd photographer as it means all the set up can be done between the two of them and there is always 2 different perspectives throughout the day.

    Awesome can’t recommend him highly enough!
