The Wedding Photographers Inspiring Our Work

We’ve recently launched this brand new website, which we’re incredibly proud of. We’ve come a long way since setting up Andy Fountain Photography in 2006 – not least becoming one of the best known wedding photography studios in Cambridgeshire and time and again recommended at some of the area’s top wedding venues, but when Lewis became Andy’s business partner, it was time to move up a level and so Fountain Photography was the next development.

Of course, we can’t put down all of our success to ourselves. Over the years, we’ve been influenced by several photographers who’ve inspired and excited us in our work. We wanted to share our favourite photographers with you - here are our top two inspirations.

Jerry Ghionis

Jerry Ghionis is a world-class photographer, widely celebrated as being among the top five best wedding photographers in the world! A Nikon ambassador, during the course of his illustrious 25-year career, Jerry has the ability to bring out the best photography in any situation.

Jerry and his wife, Melissa, are based in their beautiful studio in Las Vegas but travel several times a year in the USA and to Melbourne, Australia were they have their original studio.

Andy had the pleasure of working on one of his courses in 2012 which was a really fantastic experience, honing his skills and the intricacies in posing bodies for the best photography possible

You can check out his work here.

Below are a few shots taken by Andy whilst working with Jerry in London a few years ago.

Brett Harkness

Brett is an international award winning photographer who covers both national and international enquiries - and is one of the UK’s top wedding photographers.

He travels for his work - from capturing brides at Soho House and the many different venues around the UK and Ireland, to Italy and beyond. No destination is too far for Brett and he captures peoples’ special days fantastically.

In Brett’s own words:

“I love what I do and this shows in the images that we produce for our clients. No wedding is the same, and it is this attention to individual clients needs that make our images stand out from the rest.“

Brett is also an established portrait photographer with a unique style, creating images for actors, bands & businesses.

In addition, he teaches photography to photographers around the UK & Europe. We’ve worked on Brett’s courses a few times, with Lewis on a course just a few months ago!

Wedding photography is truly an art, and the above artists have helped to embolden us in our ongoing work photographing couples in love, making our mark in Cambridge and the surrounding areas.
