Andrew Billington award winning documentary wedding photographer

The first chapter in my working life was as an actor and theatre stage manager. I’ve spent my life telling stories and I continue to do so. I live with my wife Rachel and my two dogs on the edge of the Peak District in the UK - most of my spare time is spent walking, reading and catching up with box sets. For the last ten years, I’ve been photographing weddings, refining and perfecting my relaxed, story-telling approach. I photograph on average 40 weddings a year and try to find something different for every wedding couple I work with. 3 years ago I was asked to run a workshop on my approach to documentary wedding photography and that has expanded into running full day workshops across the UK (and even a solo, workshop in Crete in 2018). As well as photographing weddings I photograph live theatre for a few national theatres and it's a way of getting my photography to a wider audience through Nation Newspapers and exhibitions.

Cris Lowis shoots documentary weddings in United Kingdom, England and Staffordshire.

Hey, I’m Cris Lowis, a Documentary Wedding Photographer based in Staffordshire. I've been a wedding photographer since 2011 and over the years I've naturally found my style and passion within photography which is a love for real moments. Sure, I still do the posed shots if needed but by focusing on the story I give my clients an authentic representation of their wedding day. I'm a family man and spend my days off with my wife and two kids. We also have a dog, two cats and three chickens..yep, its a mad house. If you're looking for a photographer please do check out my website, I'd love to hear from you. [Staffordshire Wedding Photographer]

UK documentary wedding photographer Nick Brightman - Serving West Midlands and Wolverhampton

Let's take the ‘cheeeeeese’ out of wedding photography, No posing, no cliches, but a relaxed, unscripted record of your day – just call me The Wedding Ninja!! I love a wedding with personality, one that has ‘You’ stamped all over it Want a floral wedding dress with Doc Martens? Brilliant Getting married in an old cinema? Amazing Duck herding at the drinks reception? That will do nicely! My Dad is a photographer and I was given my first camera when I was 6 years old, but then sort of lost interest for a while. Then, about 15 years ago, whilst travelling in Asia, I bought a digital camera, spent about 3 days in Singapore taking photographs almost non stop and I was hooked, the rest, as they say, is history!!

Clive Blair covers all types of UK wedding ceremonies with his reportage style.

I began photographing weddings in 1987 and have covered many, if not all types of wedding ceremonies, ranging from the small intimate group in a local register office to several hundreds of guests in a cathedral. Because I’m based in the West Midlands, I’m centrally located to cover weddings in all the Midlands area, nationally and even abroad. I’ve been privileged to shoot on more than one occasion in places such as Ireland, Mexico and the Caribbean. [West Midlands Wedding Photographer]

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
Wedding photograph with layers | Image of the groom coming into the ceremony outdoors
Anyone who’s been to a wedding knows there’s nothing simple about the photographer’s job. This is doubly true for a wedding photojournalist, whose goal is not to just photograph the couple, and the family and friends present, but to capture the energy and the variety of emotion that surround the event. After all, it’s called a milestone for a reason. One of the best compositional strategies for a wedding photojournalist is to focus on images with depth. Deep photos, like...Read more
Wedding Photography of Busy Getting Ready Scene | Image of the groom enjoying himself as the bride, her bridesmaids, and her mom try to get her bustled for the cocktail hour
A wedding is not just the culmination of a couple’s commitment. It’s also the final product of much planning and preparation.

Luckily, when you hire a wedding photojournalist, you have someone on hand who is an expert in capturing those moments as memorable visual stories that you’ll enjoy for years to come. Some of our own WPJA members...Read more
Wedding Photojournalism - Groomsmen take a car to a mechanic to change a tire in this photo taken by an award-winning wedding photojournalist.
Many WPJA members can trace their roots to the news profession in some way, having shot everything from small-town stories to significant historical events that have led to Pulitzer Prizes. Likewise, many have felt the adrenaline rush that news photojournalists get from bagging the winning touchdown catch, documenting heart-wrenching tragedies and being on the front lines of history. There’s also the gratification of getting published with a byline in a major publication, and the mass-...Read more
Cake cutting photograph with the bride and groom deciding if they should smash or not smash the cake.
No other tradition during the wedding day should rely as heavily on improvisation as the cake cutting. Those entrenched in the traditional camp may want to offer guidelines on where to stand, how to cut the cake and when to smile for the camera, but their promptings need not be followed for a thoroughly memorable experience. In fact, not following the “rules” is frequently what makes the cake cutting unforgettable. This time-honored ritual can turn into an entertaining affair with...Read more

Thank you so much for agreeing to photograph our wedding. We love the photos and really appreciated your patience and good humour during the day. It was hard deciding which photos we wanted to use for our thank you cards as there are so many great ones we could have used, and it is only going to get harder when we move onto the albums!

Hi Andrew, Phroahhhhhhh! What photos! What WONDERFUL photos, thank you very much indeed.

We have shared the link with family and friends and the compliments keep coming in! The photo album looks beautiful, Sarah is somewhat of a photo album nerd and has plans to make a wedding album when we're back (so may be in touch in December). Thank you again for helping make our day even more special, these photos will bring us happy memories for many years to come. With much appreciation of your skill in capturing the day, Robert and Sarah
