Hi, I’m Phil Dignum

I'm a Midlands-based location photographer and designer, working as a photography duo with my husband Toby. We specialise in recording special events in a realistic, relaxed, authentic, contemporary, and fun style. It’s about documenting and telling the unique story of your special day, event or portrait shoot moment by moment.

It's the authentic and genuine moments that drive us. We believe that the important moments and memories are not staged or created, they naturally unfold. Whist photographing a wedding or event we're constantly watching, looking for those moments, real and spontaneous.

Our style is candid and genuine, it's not about manufacturing and recreating posed photos seen at others' weddings and events, but about capturing the uniqueness of the people and relationships in front of our cameras. If you're looking for a photography team to capture and document your wedding, or event as naturally as possible, without asking people to pose or smile, or you'd like a relaxed lifestyle portrait shoot to photograph the individuality of those involved; then we're your guys.

We cover the West Midlands, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire.

Take a look at our latest shoots in the blog section.

    “From the second we met Phil and his husband Toby, we knew we were in good hands. They are both so professional, yet so relaxed and make you feel at ease. The pre-wedding shoot really helped us get to know Phil and get used to being in front of the camera. The photographs he captured during this were amazing. Everybody commented on our wedding how well they fitted in and how comfortable they made them feel in front of the camera. At times, we didn't even realise they were there! We'd like to really thank Phil and Toby for all of their hard work during our day... hope you didn't get too sunburnt! And for capturing the memories we will look back on for years to come.

    “I can't imagine enjoying working with any photographer as much as we enjoyed working with Phil. Neither of us are 'photo people,' (and actually only took one picture of the 2 of us when we were on honeymoon) so we weren't sure what to expect at first. However, it was clear from the pre-wedding/engagement shoot that we'd chosen our photographer well. Phil just made everything so easy, understanding that we're not formal people and that we wanted to keep the day as relaxed as possible. Aside from taking brilliant photos which we love, he's just a great bloke and great fun to be around. Our whole family said the same!”

    “We can not thank Phil enough. He honestly is one of the most amazing men I have ever met (he very nearly became my husband I adored him that much!) Alas, he is already married and seeing as it was to our amazing registrar I don't think we could have got away with it... his talent is just unbelievable, capturing those intimate and natural moments so beautifully! He made both me and my husband feel so at ease and we knew we had made the perfect choice for our photographer. We can not recommend him enough for any occasion - we will definitely be using his services for every special occasion to come, not just for his outstanding photography - or his amazing sense of humour - or his amazing cosplay ability! - but also as an honoured guest we truly love being around. Thank you so much Philip for everything.!”

    “Thank you again for being such an amazing photographer, but also such an amazing support throughout the whole day, and the build up to the wedding! I literally couldn't have been happier on the big day, and I think you captured that perfectly! For anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion, Phil is the man to go to. I couldn't have asked for anyone better!”

    “Wow!! What more can I say about our truly stunning wedding pictures. Everyone who has seen them has commented how fantastic they are ....Phil Dignum you are extremely talented and have captured our special day better than we could have imagined. We have amazing memories to treasure forever. It will be a struggle to decide which ones to put up in our new house!! You put us at ease on our engagement shoot so when it came to the real thing it 'just happened', allowing us to spend time with our guests and soak up the day. Can't recommend high enough!! Thank you”

    We discovered Phil through Tumble Tots and I'm so glad that we did! It was so easy to arrange our family portrait session, and he took the time to discuss what we wanted. On the day he was really friendly and there was no pressure on posing. He captured our daughter and our family unit perfectly. He guided us in such a way that really put us at ease, as neither of us are big fans of having our pictures taken! We cannot recommend him enough!

    We have had two amazing photo shoots of our daughter Eva with Phil. He is incredible at capturing natural moments and expressions which is exactly what we wanted from the pictures. A lot of the photos were taken outdoors which was perfect and we were thrilled with just how many pictures we ended up with. Would absolutely recommend Phil for all events or occasions, he will put you at ease throughout and you will not be disappointed with the results!

    “We were really lucky to have Phil capture special moments from the twins birthday party. Phil managed to capture the personalities of the boys in our stunning photos. He was fantastic to work with, discussing what we wanted and making some wonderful suggestions which helped capture our special day. On the day itself he worked around all the family, capturing the boys in a natural and relaxed environment, the results were fantastic! We couldn't recommend him highly enough!”

    “P Diggy as I secretly nicknamed him was great, a lovely guy who clearly just wants to help make your memories special! Super photos, and very useful pre-shoot which gave us a great chance to get to know Phil before the big day! I would recommend him for sure! We liked his style of photography which is what first attracted us to Phil’s work, but in time we got to know him, and it was clear he was passionate about his work which was fantastic to see and be part of!”
