The man behind F I R E H O R S E Photography, Simon Mark Whitten, is a wedding photographer & film-maker, resident in France.
To date, Simon has photographed and filmed more than 600 weddings over 16 years and on 4 continents. Apparently South America & Antarctica still elude him, but otherwise he has captured weddings ranging from country houses in the UK to marquees in Scotland to chateaux in France and everything from intimate ‘weddings for 2’ to the grandest of affairs with 400+ guests.
His approach is mostly a low-key/fly-on-the-wall documentary/story-telling one, designed to be minimally invasive but producing something truly memorable.
“Are you a friend of the bride & groom?” is the question he is asked most often at weddings – this is because through every aspect of his manner, he does not conform to the stereotype of a ‘wedding photographer’.
