I grew up in a small town next to a beautiful mountain and my intense love of nature came from wandering through woods with friends and spending time with my grandparents in the country. As a child, I found our family Pentax camera endlessly fascinating even before I was able to use it. Later I finally got my first digital camera and was arranging impromptu portrait sessions with my friends during the holidays. I was always interested in creative media and music but decided on a career in business and marketing. After not long, I decided to take seriously my passion from my childhood and give up my day job. Wedding photography came to me by being asked to take photos of my friend's wedding. I feel very privileged to be able to get to know new people by witnessing a very intimate day of their life. After every wedding, I feel I have experienced and learned a lot. It's like you are watching a very emotional movie but you also run around and snap all day :) I love capturing natural moments and telling an honest story of the day. I have photographed more than 50 weddings in England and abroad since 2016. [London Wedding Photographer]
When I photographed my first wedding, at that very moment I was amazed by the explosion of all the emotions you can experience in one day altogether! Over the years of photographing weddings and elopements, I developed my personal style and taste. After trying different approaches to wedding photography, I fell in love with documenting weddings. I adore all those unexpected and special moments that can be captured and turned into memories. Along of developing my personal wedding photography style, I also became a strong believer you should enjoy your wedding day and this is what also made me become a documentary-style wedding photographer. What gives me the passion to photograph weddings? The answer is easy - every wedding is unique and I always have a chance to learn about different cultures and traditions. I see myself as a relaxed and respectful wedding photographer. We live here and now - celebrating love of two people deserves to be captured in the most candid way. [London Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Martin, a Bristol wedding and elopement photographer covering weddings all over the UK and destination wedding photography overseas. I have been documenting weddings for 10 years and had a chance to eat more than 350 different pieces of wedding cakes! Trust me this is not the main reason why I'm photographing weddings :) I truly love my job. I love capturing the little moments, the candid ones when nobody thinks I'm looking; memories that may otherwise be forgotten. After many years working as wedding photographer Somerset, I pride myself on providing each of my bride and grooms with very friendly and professional service. I have plenty of fantastic reviews from past couples and I won quite a few awards too! My photos have been published on a range of online wedding blogs including The English Wedding blog, The Wedding Community, Festival Brides, Fly Away Bride. I also love travelling and has been to more than 50 countries and still have plenty to visit, some of them for weddings! I am fluent in English, Spanish, Polish and "Portuñol" ;). I'm a family man, hiker, dog owner and Asian food lover. I spent 13 months exploring South & Central America before I became a Bristol wedding photographer and interestingly enough my first wedding that I ever photographed was in Mexico!

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 the 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 and elopement 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 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 new perceptions and energy for me. One of the most important tasks 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 my best to be a really great professional! I am lucky to do what I do! [Hampshire Wedding Photographer]
Dom began York Place Studios at the tender age of 21 along with elder brother Liam. With her film photography background and fine art influences she entered the world of weddings with the idea of doing things a little differently and in doing so created the founding principles of the York Place Style. Her passion, bubbly personality and sense of romance puts emotion at the centre of her imagery. [North Yorkshire Wedding Photographer]
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]
Hello I'm Jordanna a creative documentary wedding photographer based in Northamptonshire but merrily covering the whole of the UK, Europe and beyond. I take real pride in my work and I make no apologies for loving it so much. I am a happy, easy going character but sometimes the Italian in me rears its head so don’t be surprised if you catch me with tears in my eyes during the speeches or feeling choked up when I see you in your dress for the first time. Equally you might catch my foot tapping on the dance floor – I enjoy getting swept up by it all and I love capturing the energy in my photos. My approach to a wedding day is very much one of a documentary photographer. I, of course, shoot some family groups and a handful of portraits of the couple but I believe the majority of people connect with my work for my personality packed candids. My ideal clients are creative, fun loving, stylish and laid back. They say knickers to tradition for traditions sake and they definitely do not take themselves too seriously and they often say that, “although the photography is very important to us - we just want to have the most fun day ever.” Suits me! I thrive in seeking out fun and energy on a wedding day and my work is a lot about colour, characters, humour and Britishness. I have been shooting weddings full time for almost five years now and have shot close to 200 weddings. Although I’ve never been one to chase accolades – ultimately it is my couples’ feedback and happiness that fulfils me - I was extremely proud (and thankful) to be named one of the Rangefinder Rising Stars in 2017. It was a totally crazy feeling for me and my little business to be recognised on that sort of renowned, international photography platform...but of course very very nice too! Thought you might want to read a little about me outside of work to soooo...I live in a Victorian house on a nice leafy street with my husband and our son. There is nothing we like doing more together than exploring new places; booking random Airbnbs and getting away as often as we can. Besides from the mum/wife stuff I love chilling with my friends; painting; interior design and architecture; a good coffee table book; plotting projects on Pinterest; having a good, sweaty dance; having a laugh; bright lipsticks; instagramming; travelling; meeting new people and hearing their stories…which I guess is why I am so suited to my job. Being asked by couples to hang out with them and their families on their wedding days to take photos is just a dream come true. It’s also worth knowing that my business is run with an environmentally friendly policy at it’s heart. Most of my work is online; packaging is made from recycled materials and my gorgeous Fine Art albums are sourced locally. Obviously travel in my job is inevitable but I use public transport where possible and I run a modern, fuel efficient car. At home we recycle like mad; grow some of our own veggies; shop local and walk lots. If you like the sound of me and love my work then do get in touch – I would love to hear all about your plans and I’m sure if you go on to book me we’ll have a great time in the process.

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]
I’m Alex and I’m an award-winning photographer, husband to an amazing wife and father to a beautiful daughter. Currently living in the picturesque Cotswolds I shoot weddings all over the UK, Europe and anywhere in the world I’m asked to. I absolutely love using photography as a way of capturing emotion and telling stories which is why I specialise in documentary wedding photojournalism, a more candid and hands-off approach to wedding photography. Basically I will never tell you what to do, where to stand or ask you to ‘act natural’! I am also privileged to work with Sony UK as one of their Sony Alpha Creators. This includes delivering talks and presentations for Sony at photographic events and conventions all over the UK about my approach to documentary wedding photography using the Alpha system. As well as giving talks for Sony UK I also enjoy teaching and sharing my photographic approach and techniques at events and photography conventions around the UK and I have spoken several times at the annual The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

Jordanna, these are amazing!!! Such a stunning set of photos!! Wow, you’ve really managed to capture the whole day here! So many beautiful moments, some of which we’d even forgotten about. Thanks you so much!! We really appreciate you putting so much effort into our day, and bringing Ally with you as well. And we massively appreciate the amount of effort you’ve put into getting these all ready for us! We couldn’t be happier with how they’ve come out :) We also love how you’ve captured all the decorations and details in the venue! So nice to have some great shots of these. Thanks again for all this, it’s massively appreciated! Looking forward to sharing the photos with our families. Lots of love, O & C xx
Hi Jordanna!! I'm so sorry for such a delay and I hope you're well! It's been a bit crazy (I bet all of your brides say that!!) - we had an amazing honeymoon in Sri Lanka and the Maldives, arrived home on the Monday - and then had an epic Indian wedding that weekend! Yesterday was our first day actually at home since before the wedding!! The photos are beautiful!! We are busy sharing them with family and friends and those who have seen them so far love them! There are so many moments I obviously missed because I was either upstairs or elsewhere - I now have a full picture of the day! I still can't believe what amazing weather we had - and that was the last thing on my mind! The wedding we went to last weekend was.....very different to ours! I emailed Mark last week and told him how they had 4 (!) photographers, dressed all in black with branded t-shirts and 2 videographer guys! They just got in the way! Thank you for being pretty much invisible! We are going to look into buying an album over the next few days and are going to order some prints via the gallery. Thanks so much! x Hayley
