Hi, I’m Craig and welcome to Craig Hickey Photography. I’m a creative Leicester wedding photographer, covering Leicestershire, the surrounding areas and the rest of the UK. Ive even been lucky enough to photograph weddings abroad, so please get in touch for a destination wedding quote…its not as expensive as you think…promise! 

My style is very relaxed and unobtrusive which I believe helps get the best pictures possible. Sure, I get the formal photos after the wedding ceremony, but from there onwards its my job to document your wedding as it happens, capturing all those special, fun, crazy and drunken moments as they happen, telling the story of your big day! I pride myself on capturing the personality of your day too because I think the little quirks make up the big picture. 

At the end of your wedding day, i’ll deliver outstanding imagery that you and your family will cherish for a lifetime. These amazing memories can be stored on a my supplied USB or put into a beautiful, handmade wedding album of your choice.

Our Philosophy

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.


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.

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.


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.

Professional Editing

The techy bit. During post-production, i’ll use my retouching skills to enhance your images by emphasising colours, highlights, shadows etc and removing unsightly objects. If that worries you, don’t let it. We’re rather good at this kind of stuff, so any edited images will always maintain a natural appearance.

Craig was brilliant! He put us at ease in the meeting before, and actually his knowledge of what he's seen work well/less so at weddings was incredibly helpful! He was happy to go with the flow on the day and was pretty discreet throughout. He was flexible and dealt with rain and 'surprises' with ease! We're so pleased with the photos - they've captured so many of our favourite moments from the day, and all the happiness! Highly recommend!

Craig and Steve were both amazing on the day, so patient and kind and worked so well with my other suppliers to get the best shots whilst not hindering them. They helped organise the formal shots really well despite our family being large and rather hectic! When the pictures were available online I spent a full day looking at them as they were perfect! They captured the happiness and grace of the day perfectly and it was amazing to relive the day again through the pictures. I love the shots of me and my husband at the reception venue, they were really creative and imaginative and I love the final result. It took us ages to find a photographer as I wanted someone I felt comfortable with and at one point I thought I'd never find one as I just didn't gel with anyone and then I met Craig and Steve and instantly felt relaxed and comfortable and I'm so glad I chose them! Thank you for capturing the best day of our lives so perfectly we can't put into words how much it means!

We used Craig and his assistant Steve for our wedding in August and both were excellent. Craig’s work, attention to detail and personality make us highly recommend him. From the very first time we made contact with Craig we were impressed with him and he took time to walk through options and we are delighted with our photos from the day. Craig has always been available and helpful both pre and post wedding and the way he has put our wedding album together is excellent. Highly recommended by us and our guests.

We organized and planned our Rutland wedding from Florida, which meant lots of corresponding via email. Craig was patient and understanding with us from day one. On the day-of he was professional, yet relaxed, calm, and fun. (We enjoyed the role playing between Craig and assistant Steve for our posed sunset shots!) We received our proofs just 2 weeks after our wedding. We LOVE our photos, and can't wait to choose a bunch for our album. The only thing we wished more of was time. The day goes by so quickly, so enjoy it, and be sure to hire Craig to capture it, so you'll the memories to share and enjoy for a lifetime!

Craig did an amazing job on our special day. Always pulling the strings behind the scenes and not too in your face, capturing very natural shots of people having fun and some clever artistic shots to boot. We were especially pleased with the bride and groom shots, he knows how to get the best out of the scenery and has an eye for detail. We’d recommend Craig in a heartbeat!
