Services From Barry Powell
Memories Photography has been going for 9+ years, established in 2012, we have covered more weddings year on year because of feedback from satisfied couples. In 2021 we covered 38 weddings with no complaints and plenty of praise. We would be pleased to cover your wedding with a mixture of posed and candid shots throughout the day. Guests arriving, bridal/groom prep if required and formal group shots after the ceremony up to and including the first dance / cutting the cake. We start at an agreed time and are happy for you to suggest shots and poses on the day.
We have just been named SME West Midlands "Wedding Photographer of the Year 2021", a good result.
For wedding photography we offer a mix of candid and traditional wedding photography. A story in pictures of how your day progressed. Our basic package covers the ceremony only, you can then tailor the package to suit your needs by adding on items from the extras list.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Barry was brilliant, excellent communication from the start and he and his lovely assistant were a lovely addition to our small ceremony. We have many beautiful photographs from the day. Barry also worked Christmas Eve and Morning to get our photos to us which was such a lovely surprise, he went over and above and gave us lovely memories. Highly recommend. Thank you Barry.

I contacted Barry about attending our very small, still not out of lockdown wedding. Due to the time of the ceremony, it was an early start. He agreed to what I suggested, was there on time and did everything I had asked. He and his assistant were friendly with everyone, and very accommodating, even helping out my friend who is not well, when there was nowhere to sit. I am pleased with the photos, there are some really lovely ones. A CD was part of the package, and that arrived 4 days after the event, beautifully presented. The package was excellent value for the price.

I can’t recommend these guys enough, very good communication, and nothing was too much trouble. Also considering the lack of natural light we had on offer, they did a marvellous job.
Due to Covid we had our original wedding date changed at short notice, and they were able to make everything a little bit smoother by just being very easy to deal with and change plans.

We were very impressed with Barry and his assistant, they showed professionalism and genuine care for our wedding. Thanks so much for your work, the book and dvd is amazing. I would recommend you both to anyone, very friendly service and completed the book etc within a week. Thanks
