what we do

Craftsmanship with a Camera

Metal & glass, and your index finger. That’s all there is to it, really. You can even do it on your phone. So what makes Milk Wood Photography so special?

We don’t just take photos. What makes us different is the planning; the personable element; the unspoken attention to detail; we tell a story.

Rob spent a whole day from 7am until 11pm caputuring every moment of our wedding. We love looking back at not just photos, but the story of our special day.

We already had our main wedding photographer booked, but realised later on there would be no evidence of what the groom’s party did all morning. Rob stepped in at the last minute, and got some beautiful images of ‘the other perspective’ of our wedding morning.

Had a dance-shoot with Rob. The organisation and planning was great, and the final results are amazing... thank you so much!!

Just marvellous. We occasionally worried because we couldn’t see him...yet he was always there, hidden in plain sight, capturing those candid details of our wedding most people would miss.

About Me


Milk Wood Photography is the creation of Robert Smith, a Northamptonshire-based photographer. Initially being inspired by various YouTube landscape photographers such as Thomas Heaton, Nigel Danson and Anthony Morganti, I learnt my trade with a combination of technical theory with practice & experimentation in the field.

Having grown up in the suburban home counties, I moved to Northamptonshire in 2014 and immediately became enthralled with living within 5 minutes of the English countryside.

It wasn’t until friends started asking me ‘you take photos, right?’ that I began capturing social gatherings & weddings too, always preferring the candid ‘reportage’ style of photos and shying away from solely posed scenes. 1 became 2, and word of mouth spread.
