At Eight Bell’s I know that every bride and groom will have a completely unique day.
I will shoot to reflect this and want you to remember exactly how you felt at the time.
Most people initially approach me because they like my style of photography, then they meet me and find I am not only professional, but also friendly and accommodating. It is after all, your special day, and you want to feel 100% confident and comfortable with everyone who is present, including your photographer.
I genuinely care about you and the aspirations you have for your wedding day. I want to be there with you and support you every step of the way.
Out of all of the people in this world, you picked one single human to spend your life with. It is our desire as artists and fellow humans to remind you of the ‘why’ and to authentically capture that feeling in photos. It’s important to me that you walk away with more than staged photos of your day. I want you to feel refreshed and reminded of what brought you to this wonderful event in your life.
Yes, all the photos are edited to the quality shown on this website. Editing includes colour, exposure and contrast correction. No retouching will be applied. All the digital files will be high resolution jpegs suitable for printing in sizes up to 60x90cm without losing details.
I document weddings near our home in Morzine in the French Alps, and travel all over the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.
English, French, Spanish and Hebrew.
I don’t limit myself with shooting throughout the day. I do guarantee at least 400 images, but from experience it can be double on full day coverage.
Most wedding couples bring this up, and actually the way I work is perfect for people who are a little camera shy. My default mode is to not interfere or stage poses, so for most of the day you’ll look absolutely brilliant by just ignoring me! Even when I shoot couple shots, I am secretly snapping the fits of giggles and stolen looks when you’re not noticing, and this is how I capture those special moments!
I upload the final high resolution photos into a password protected gallery. You can download your images from this gallery and share them with your friends. The gallery will be online for at least a year.
For your own peace of mind, please make sure to download the high res photos and back up to several different locations or save in your cloud storage system. In just a few clicks, high quality prints can be easily ordered.
Within 60 days of your wedding, I will send you the link and password for your online photo gallery, and within seconds you will be smiling at your stunning pictures!
You can easily purchase high quality prints from the online gallery and have them sent directly to your home. I can also make a beautiful album of your favourite photos. I will design it for you and have it professionally printed in bookshop quality. The product can be printed as many times as you wish for family and friends and sent directly to your home address.
As with most wedding photography, you have the right to print your images and share them with family and friends in private, you can also publish on your personal social networks. What you cannot do is distribute them for commercial or advertising purposes, including to your service providers.
I started in 2014 and have shot over 300 weddings. I am confident in all conditions, from snowy mountain peaks in -10°C temperatures to hot deserts of 45°C.
A signed contract and a 25% deposit. The other 75% is due 7 days before your wedding date.
Many of my commissions contact me a year or more in advance. To avoid disappointment, as soon as possible pay the deposit and secure your date – unfortunately I can’t hold the date until this is done.
I've made the decision to focus exclusively on our photography services at Eight Bells. With the arrival of our newest family member, my wife Polly, who used to handle our videography, has taken on new responsibilities. This has led us to discontinue our videography services for the time being. Rest assured, I remain committed to providing exceptional wedding photography to capture your special moments beautifully.
Get in touch with your wedding date and I will be back to you to book our first meeting. This will be an informal chat via phone, Skype or in person, where we discuss expectations and get to know each other. When you decide to book me, you need to pay the 25% deposit to secure your wedding date.
I’d love to hear from you!
Please tell me about yourselves and your wedding day.

They put us at ease in front of the camera, and were so discreet on the day that we barely noticed them! We absolutely love our wedding photos and video - they capture the essence of the day in the relaxed, informal, happy style we were after. They also happen to be lovely people as well as talented ones!
From the very beginning of our journey Reuben & Polly made us feel at ease and understood completely what we were looking for. Their style of photography and editing was relaxed and natural. We could not be more delighted with the final results and the memories we will now be able to look back on!
I could go on and on about how incredible Reuben's photos are, but the images on his website speak for themselves. Aside from his pictures, on the day Reuben and Polly had a way of making both of us immediately feel comfortable in front of the camera. They were a joy to work with and have created pictures that bring back the most amazing day for us time and time again. We can't thank them both enough!
Choosing Reuben to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. Reuben and Polly were amazing before, during and after the ceremony and exceeded our expectations in every way. We love our photos more than we thought we ever could. Thank you so much for capturing our day so perfectly!
Polly et Reuben ont contribué à faire de notre mariage une journée parfaite. Leur gentillesse et leur discrétion ont été mises en avant par nos invités. Nous les remercions du fond du cœur. Restez comme vous êtes.
The results are as beautiful as we imagined, if not more. All the happy memories and feelings just come rushing back. Reuben is great at capturing the hidden moments and emotion, nothing feels staged, and the colour and light was amazing! Even in the rain, he expertly captured the romance and moodiness of the mountains. We would not hesitate to recommend them. They are a lovely and interesting couple and extremely talented at what they do. Thank you both!!
