What makes Ahuvi so unique?

AHUVI -
meaning 'My Beloved'

Ahuvi has been established since 2011 to provide quality wedding photography.

The challenge is there are so many wedding photographers out there already (and some very good ones!). But I want to do something different.

I capture the essence of a wedding day and make sure its edited and presented in a way that will stand the test of time.

I  provide bright, vibrant images that look natural and fun as well as romantic. In fact, this is the reason that many couples choose Ahuvi.

I am always professional, making sure that I am not seen for the important parts like the ceremony (I have been called a “Ninja” or an “Assassin with a camera” before) to make sure that the focus is on you – the couple.

And then I’m friendly and fun at other times to help people relax. It’s important to me to make sure that you enjoy your day and don’t have a grumpy photographer ruining things for you.

Owner and Photographer

Jonathan Lockwood

I have been in the photographic industry since leaving college (where I studied Photography of course!). Managing photo-labs on the high streets of Exeter, Canterbury, Chatham and Maidstone. It would be my duty to make sure that customers photographs were printed to the best standard – and we won awards for our dedication to quality!

In 2011 I finally decided to stop processing others work and build my own photography business.

Starting with nothing, I borrowed equipment and within a couple of years had built the business up (and finally bought a full set of gear!). But those days taught me  how to manage with very little and focus on the skill of photography rather than rely upon a fancy camera. It paid off.

Another important aspect about me is that I am friendly and approachable.

I trained for two years as an outdoor activity instructor on Dartmoor, teaching climbing, kayaking and other activities, which gave me great skills in interacting and leading in a friendly manner.

All of this combined means that I provide a professional service with excellent quality photographs and in a friendly, authoritative manner. It’s just what’s needed to make a wedding day run smoothly and enjoyable for all.
