Berkshire, UK photographer of documentary weddings Sher-Ali Perwaz

Sher-Ali Perwaz photographs weddings with his wife, Shital: Having been together for 20 years, Sher & Shital share a real passion for life and understand the importance of capturing moments that will want to be re-lived time and time again. Having two children themselves, they can appreciate what moments are from a parents perspective. "Watching them grow is incredible...time goes by so fast and we only have our photos of them growing to solidify the memories held in our minds". Sher & Shital like offering their clients photography that is clean and contemporary. Sharp captures that are true to the eye and genuinely reflect the realness of the event. Being photojournalists they have a documentary approach to their style of storytelling, which gives a linear sense of continuity when viewing the final album. As a husband and wife team, they are both lead photographers. From Sher's creative vision to Shital's flair for fashion imagery, their outcome is simply gorgeous wedding photography. There are many components to capturing a wedding from a photographers perspective. There is the decor, the details, the couple, the family, the ceremony, the portraits, the rituals and the dancing. All of these elements evoke smiles, tears, laughter and much joy. "We are truly blessed to be in a position that enables us to capture memories that can touch people throughout their lives and the generations to come." Their couples feel at ease from the initial consultation to their wedding day. "We believe that the best results occur when you have a personal relationship with your photographer".

Richard Galloway is a UK based wedding photographer for England and Surrey.

I'm Richard Galloway and I've been shooting weddings all over the UK and beyond for the last 13 years (over 300 of them to be exact). I think most wedding photographers would agree that it's not just a privilege to be able to do this, it's also hugely rewarding too. After all, we're there to capture moments in time that will be shared for generations to come. Photographing the story of the day rather than constantly directing it is what it's all about for me...because it's not just about capturing beautiful images, it's about letting the wedding 'breathe' as well. If everyone's having a great time then the genuine emotions and joy are just bound to shine through. [Surrey Wedding Photographer]

London wedding reportage photographer Simon Cardwell | United Kingdom and England

My name is Simon and I am a documentary photographer. A photograph documents a happy time in your life & is something to look back on. What I do is record those moments & make them last. I am lucky to do what I love for a living & since photographing my first wedding in 2007, I have been fortunate enough to photograph weddings in all across the UK, throughout London & occasionally further afield. In that time I have seen every kind of occasion & I know the memories are the same no matter where or how you choose to get married. I believe in a natural style of photography which ensures you won't spend your wedding day constantly posing for photos, I will find the moments rather than staging them. Just like every other day in your life, nothing on your wedding day should be forced. [London Wedding Photographer]

England and Hampshire is where you will find stylish wedding reportage photographer Paul Tansley

After shooting for fashion magazines in London for over 18 years, I consider myself a veteran of that industry. However, seven years ago I left London and started shooting weddings exclusively. Although I bring with me a lot of experience in how to make women look beautiful in pictures I don't ever pose my pictures. I use observation of light, composition and my processing skills, to create my images without ever intruding on the couples enjoyment of the wedding day. My aim is always to be as unobtrusive as I can possibly be during the day and making people feel like they were at the wedding when they view the images. [Hampshire Wedding Photographer]

London wedding photographer David Cliff - England

It was my interest in the news and events of our lives and times that drew me to photography—to photojournalism. I wanted to see for myself what I could of the world, of history, and through my photographs let others see, in the great tradition of photojournalists down the years. I’ve since had images featured by publications and organisations including the New York Times, the London Evening Standard, the Telegraph, The Economist, the BBC, CNN, Vice, Vanity Fair, and the Huffington Post, distributed worldwide via agencies including Getty Images and AFP. Working as a photojournalist still fills much of my time, and no doubt it will always be the kind of photography I draw my inspiration from most of all. Naturally, then it’s the documentary mindset that underpins my approach to the other kinds of photography I’m commissioned for—weddings above all. Mine is keen-eyed, unobtrusive-yet-intimate way of working; my focus on capturing storytelling moments and the authenticity of an occasion. I want you to not really know I’m there, then later be amazed at what I saw. To my mind, it’s the most natural fit for a celebration like a wedding and truest way you can relive the day again and again in the months and years afterward. I’m based in London but work far and wide as well as locally, and I like to travel, so if you’re elsewhere (or your wedding will be) don’t let that be a consideration. Get in touch any time; I'll look forward to hearing from you and learning about your plans. [London Wedding Photographer]

England and Hampshire wedding photography by Anna Mikulich, of UK

I love to take pictures that will make people happy. Photography is my passion. At my young age I delighted with the beauty of our World and always wanted to keep amazing memories for myself and others for a long time. Then I was managed to do this with help of my «magic» camera by creating original and unique images that reflect the beauty of humanity and nature, the experiences we all feel and share. Now I am still falling in love with Wedding Photography that gives me a unique opportunity to visit beautiful places, meet interesting people and help them to capture those joys and happiness they were experienced on their special day – the beginning of their new life journey together. I think about my profession like about a huge playground for creativity. Experience of something new, a source of inspiration and satisfaction! I really enjoy being a part of the wedding – such a special, positive spring of a new perceptions and energy for me. One of the most important task for every professional is to capture a special atmosphere, the mood and spirit of the wedding that will bring precious moments and unforgettable feelings to people looking at these pictures in five, ten or even fifty years. And I always try to do all my best to be a real great professional! I am lucky to do what I do! [Hampshire Wedding Photographer]

Adam Szczepanski - Completed Masters thesis on Photography and now covers weddings in United Kingdom and England with his reportage style.

As of now Adam is a London based wedding photographer who shoots weddings in documentary style with a touch of art. Adam obtained his BA in English Literature and MA in Culture Studies in Krakow where he wrote his Masters thesis on Photography. But his story with photography started much earlier. He was given his first camera at the age of 8, it was a Russian made old film camera called Smiena 8. Adam still has photos taken with it, mainly portraits of his immediate family - full of sentiments as you can imagine. Fast forward to 2002 when Adam decided to move to London. He has had various jobs in the UK which gave him great experience and sense of adventure. He worked as a waiter, personal carer of a disabled person, multilingual help-desk analyst, international IT trainer for Oracle and few others. In 2011 he decided to become a wedding photographer - full time. Photography has been his secret dream since he was a child but it wasn’t until 2007 when he photograph his first wedding. It happened that both the bride and the groom loved the pictures so much, they encouraged Adam to pursue this dream and become a photographer. He also loves travelling, either backpacking, or riding a motorcycle which recently has been swapped for a motorhome - much safer and warmer :). He has been to more than 40 countries and still has plenty to visit, some of them for weddings! He is fluent in English, Spanish, Polish with good Russian. London is known for being a melting pot of ethnic diversity, and indeed one of the best aspects of being a London wedding photographer is the variety of weddings Adam has the privilege of shooting. Whether it be a traditional church wedding, an Indian wedding, a Jewish wedding or even a humanist wedding - Adam will do his best to be "fly on the wall" capturing every amazing moment in a way that he hopes his couples love. The timing, the colours, the light and the angles - it takes experience to take pictures which each tell a story. It's about creatively and uniquely capturing real and special moments so you'll never forget the love and laughter of your big day. You can live in this city for many years like Adam has and still feel like there is so much more that is undiscovered. Although he also shoots weddings outside of London, including across the UK and abroad, most of the weddings which he has photographed have been in this great city. After many years working as a London wedding photographer, and almost 200 weddings under his belt, Adam is confident that he can shoot weddings with class and flair. He has plenty of fabulous reviews from past couples and even a few awards :) [London Wedding Photographer]

Rik Pennington is a London based UK wedding reportage photojournalist.

Weddings are about the relationships and moments that happen between people and for a photographer they are the perfect opportunity to create a narrative from what happens throughout the day. With a background in graphic design, I love creating order within my frames from the fast moving events at a wedding, telling the story honestly and creatively. A lot of contemporary wedding photographers cite their influences from the world of documentary or street photography and I'm no different as these genres are generally about the relationships between people, so it translates well into today's wedding photography and what modern couples want. I've been shooting weddings since 2008, and I can honestly say that my enthusiasm grows each year with the challenges ahead. I'm based in London and shoot throughout the UK as well as destination weddings world wide. [London Wedding Photographer]

WPJA Communiqué: Features
Denis Gostev, of New York, is a wedding photographer for St. Francis Xavier Church
You can argue that of all the photos on your wedding day, the ones taken during the ceremony are the most meaningful—that’s why you’re there, right? It’s ironic, then, that wedding photojournalists regularly have the most trouble shooting their best work in the churches where these very ceremonies take place. Often times, significant moments unfold in front of camera lenses that are too far away, positioned at awkward angles, and photographers are forced to operate under...Read more
Sideline story photography at the wedding reception showing ladies drinking gin from tea cups
Some wedding photographers may feel the need to include the bride or groom in every picture, but those photos convey only part of the day's record. Most WPJA members will probably tell you that you're not fully documenting the event unless you get out there on the periphery and record the subplots of the wedding day—the unique and intersecting stories of the guests as they enjoy the festivities. We call these types of pictures “sideline shots,” and they are distinct from the standard reaction...Read more
Creative Portraits and wedding photography | Bride & groom portrait walking in front of colorful wall outside
Portraits are part of every wedding, of course, but some photos have the ability to sear themselves into the memory, providing an unforgettable image that rises above the common convention. Wedding photojournalists shooting portraits work within an expanded set of parameters, just like their counterparts in the news world: Some direction and setup is acceptable in order to fully capture subjects in the context of who they are and what they are feeling. Yet everyone approaches wedding portraits...Read more
Wedding Photograph taken as bridesmaids see bride in her dress for the first time and showing their reactions
To document the best moments of a wedding day, a photographer shouldn’t only focus on the bride and groom , or even on the main event. "Reaction shots," which record the reactions of guests observing the wedding’s activities as they occur, add an invaluable dimension to the visual record of the festivities. “I was constantly given a gentle reminder to look beyond the obvious action while covering sports assignments while on staff at The Hartford Courant newspaper,...Read more
