Wedding Photographers in Lydney
Anthony Ball Photography captures and highlights those precious moments in your life, preserving the emotion and energy of the event. Based in the scenic Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, I display a country theme through my work by blending natural settings and light with human events, aspirations and activities, applying a range of photographic and editing techniques to produce my immensely popular 'circle of life' collections.
I shoot weddings in a similar relaxed manner documenting the events with minimal interference to you or your guests. I take sets of images that tell a story of a particular event but will always include a period (normally with the bride and groom alone) to capture the fine artistic work that become the "wow" pictures of the day.
After the shoot, I professionally edit the images at my home studio and produce a slideshow lasting between 3-5 minutes. I'll present the slideshow to you and work with you to assist in the sometimes, difficult and emotional decisions around selecting images. Presentation is everything so I bring a stunning range of sample frames, albums and other displays so you get a real hands on feel for the finished product.
I really look forward to meeting with you and having the chance to produce some stunning images and art work of your lifestyle, family or special day.
A typical shoot is carried out on location at your property, a place of interest or at an event such as a horse trials or country fete. Shoots usually last between half and a full day, and provide a pleasurable and relaxing experience for clients, many of whom are filmed amongst their favourite things, or with beloved family pets.
Using my skills and attributes honed over a successful and varied career, I organise and manage my photography sessions to deliver the most effective results whilst maintaining the flexibility to be spontaneous for that magic moment. I create a fun and friendly atmosphere to ensure you enjoy the process, allowing me to capture the very best images of you and your day.

From the very first meeting when Tony showed us the awesome album samples that he had we knew we were on to a winner. The package on offer included a pre wedding Engagement shoot that made the happy couple very at ease by going through a photography session without the added pressure of their wedding. They then had a special electronic album in Spring with one of their own choice of enlarged photographs as a gift to be signed by all the guests at the wedding. On the big Autumn day Tony was almost invisible from almost dawn to dusk. The photographs at home with the bride up until the Church were priceless to the Groom as he hadn't been there for that part of their big day. All of our guests have commented on the standard of the photographs and he certainly didn't disappoint. We had an amazing evening trying to pick the final album photos, but they were too good to choose so we ended up buying another 4 pages! We knew the albums would be good because we had seen them at our first meeting, but when they arrived one mid-week evening we were flabbergasted and beyond perfect. We also have two smaller identical mothers albums to keep in our handbags to bring out at every opportunity. We would recommend Tony to anyone and will use him again without hesitation. One very happy Mother of the Bride and her newly married daughter

Anthony went above and beyond to make the bride and all of the wedding party (and most importantly the excitable bridesmaids) feel relaxed and at ease. He is creative with his shots and always thinks outside the box. He captured some beautiful moments and provided us all with memories for life. He delivers light banter mixed with the utmost professionalism and gets the job done with a smile on his face. Absolute pleasure to work with.

After meeting with several photographers we chose Anthony as our wedding photographer. For me he ticked all the boxes, he was keen, friendly and his previous work was exactly how I wanted my pictures to be....professional but not staged, capturing the feel of the day. He went on to do this beautifully. I now have loads of pictures to forever look back on and remember my special day. We both felt so relaxed with Tony, which I felt was very important as you are being photographed all day.... I highly recommend his services and will definitely be using him again for future family photo shoots
I have never liked having my photo taken so I had been dreading my Wedding Day. Anthony was wonderful and within minutes I was at ease. Even the wedding guests commented on how lovely he was. As for the photographs, they surpassed all expectations! My husband and I were thrilled with them. The happiness of the day was really captured, along with all the detail - decorations, flowers, etc which can be easily forgotten. Thank you very much Anthony and thank you for your patience, despite the wedding running late you stayed to the end. We are very grateful

Anthony produced some amazing images of my daughter's wedding this summer. The happy couple appeared so happy and relaxed and we have some wonderful lasting memories of a fabulous day. He and wife Gill were unobtrusive, very professional and pleasant to have around. He also took some great pictures of our dogs as they tried to keep out of the action. Recommended with absolute confidence.
In January 2012, Mr & Mrs S said about Anthony Ball Photography We had a very enjoyable time on the day of the shoot with Tony. He put the whole family at ease so that we didn't feel like we needed to pose for pictures every second of the shoot, and got some great natural photos. Tony's extensive knowledge of the Forest of Dean meant he was able to guide us to some great locations for our photos. We really appreciated the time he took pre shoot to listen to what we wanted from the shoot. We were able to view the edited pictures the next day, including a fantastic slideshow of the best pictures set to music which was unexpected and something we were really pleased with. As Tony had brought his laptop with him he also was able to demonstrate how our chosen pictures would look by editing them as he went through them. There was no pushy sales pitch and we didn't feel rushed into making a decision about which pictures to choose. We ordered some canvas prints and photos that arrived promptly, and Tony also threw in the slide show which our kids love watching at home on the DVD player. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tony, the service he provides is excellent and it's a great way to capture some memories of your holiday in a beautiful setting. We would definitely use Tony again.
In November 2011, Mrs Molly G said about Anthony Ball Photography We used Anthony Ball Photography on our wedding day in May 2011. Thanks to him we have a wonderful range of photographs which truly capture all the special moments throughout our big day. From the start to the finish of our involvement with Anthony Ball Photography, Anthony has offered us an outstanding service. We were offered a pre-wedding shoot which ensured we could practice shots and find out what would work well for us. This meant that on the big day, everything ran smoothly and comfortably. On the day of the Wedding, Anthony arrived promptly and discreetly captured me (the bride), with all of my bridesmaids getting ready for the big day. The photographs really capture the excitement in the room. Throughout the day, Anthony knew where to be at all times, and blended into the celebrations, helping to ensure that the photographs we got, gave a real feel for our special day. Following the day, we continued to receive a fantastic service. We had another meeting to look through our photographs, which Anthony had put onto a slide show with a music. It truly was a magical experience, replaying our day's events. The pictures and quality were fantastic. Anthony has a way of capturing wonderful expressions and emotions of everyone present, whilst ensuring an attractive and interesting photograph. He also captured all the details that had gone into the planning of the day, for example, the flowers, the themes and the decorations. We were also offered a wide range of products, with a variety of prices, quality and finish. All of these were fantastic value, and very creative. We would definitely use Anthony Ball photography again and I have already recommended him to many of my friends. My husband and I have already said that we will definitely book him up, years in advance for the day we decide to renew our wedding vows!! Many thanks again for all your hard work, we are truly over the moon with the pictures that you produced for us.
