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]
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]
Hey, I’m Louise; a Surrey Wedding Photographer based close to London and in easy reach of the surrounding counties, it’s been nearly ten years since I began photographing weddings professionally and I still find myself just as charmed with the experience as when I began. Photographs have the ability to let the most important memories rush back to us. From the smell and textures of a place, to the people that were with us and the reason that brought everyone together to celebrate. I love being around others on a day where friends and family come together to celebrate love and their connection. Being responsible for documenting and curating that story to be remembered for years to come is something I find great joy in. [Hampshire Wedding Photographer]
Hello! Firstly I hate writing bios - photos are definitely more my thing! Where to start? Well, I'd love to say that I was always 'arty' and never without a camera at my side growing up, but the fact is that just simply isn't how it all began for me. I was never very good 'at art' at school growing up. I always wanted to be. I was creative in the sense of making clothes and gifts for family/friends...but never 'did art' per se. Luckily, in later life I found in photography a medium through which I could express my inner desire to create and more importantly (to me), to document moments to preserve memories. I love photographing life. Not just the obvious big moments, but also the beauty in the seemingly mundane. As such my camera is never very far away from me. My inspiration is my tribe - my lovely little family and best friends - the ones with whom this journey through life would be quite a lot less enjoyable! I live in West Sussex, and can mostly be found either by the sea or photographing all things joyous in and around the South-East. [West Sussex 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]
My name is Obi, and I'm a wedding photojournalist working out of London, and who with my team, shoot weddings and portraits mainly in the UK. I'm afraid, I don't have any emotional story about getting a camera as my 10th birthday present, or how my father before me was a photographer. I was just a regular IT analyst who a couple of years back, simply came across some amazing images online, and a passion was ignited. So after loads photography books read, thousands of images shot, countless hours on photo forums, and several years later, here I am, using my God given talent to do what I simply love doing ... [London Wedding Photographer]
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]
A wedding is a momentous event, that should be photographed subtly and respectfully, through observation, rather than orchestration. This is the mindset I take to each and every wedding I photograph, to ensure that I blend in effortlessly, and that as far as possible I don't influence proceedings. If I get to the end of the day, and my clients remark how they have hardly noticed me all day, then my work is done! It is also a huge responsibility, when working with a blank canvas, to be able to tell the perfect story, This is why I prepare meticulously for every wedding, so I know every detail, and can position myself in the right place at the right time, and focus upon capturing the true ethos of the day. I'm also a firm believer in the photography 'journey', which includes getting to know my clients before the wedding. By doing this, I have a deeper understanding of who my clients are, and they also trust me more on the day to do what I do, it is a really important relationship. I've been photographing weddings for over 20 years when I started with the opportunity of covering family weddings in my late teens. I absolutely loved it, but it wasn't the 'standard' shots that people loved, it was the observation, the unique moments, the reportage, the storytelling. This approach, and my respectfully quiet nature is what has driven me to focus more upon my documentary work, anticipating, and always looking for little moments of magic. But I also know that clients don't always want just this, which is why I always offer a sprinkle of creativity where required through the day, by putting my clients in great light and great positions, but still encouraging them to shine and be themselves. When I am not shooting weddings, I always have to have camera with me; I adore landscape photography, which is my time to photograph for myself, and to re-energise and keep myself motivated as a photographer. I am fortunate to have won awards across many disciplines; landscapes, food, pets, portraits, and weddings, and I draw upon core principles from each of these genres to strengthen my wedding coverage.

It's a familiar story, but I discovered photography aged about sixteen when I found my grandfather’s old camera lying unused and unloved in a desk drawer. Ever since that day I have rarely been seen without a camera around my neck. I went on to study Photography at the University for the Creative Arts in Surrey, achieving a 1st Class Honours Degree. After that, I became a teacher and freelance photographer. I was fortunate enough to have my work exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery and Somerset House and featured in a number of magazines. Until I photographed my first few weddings, I didn’t think anything could compare to the buzz and excitement of photographing at London or Paris fashion, but in 2007 I set up Married to my Camera and haven’t looked back since! I believe in taking unobtrusive reportage style pictures that capture the most important events of the day, as well as those spontaneous and sometimes humorous moments that make every wedding unique. To date, I've shot well over 200 weddings. [Surrey Wedding Photographer]
Photography - its what I love, whether its photographing a wedding, a Himalayan mountain range or a carnival. If you like the look of my work then get in touch, and lets talk about your big day. I specialise in reportage wedding photography but if you'd like a few posed shots I'm happy to help, I also love shooting around the golden hour and am currently working on a twilight project - in which I take couples out for a lit portrait as darkness falls. I came into photography through my uncle who is a professional Landscape photographer, seeing his posters on the walls at home inspired me to pick up a camera and start seeing the world through a lens. I studied Photography at School, College and then University where I graduated with a 1st Class degree in the subject, and I've been doing it for a living ever since. My photography has been published around the world by National Geographic, The Times, The Guardian, The Independent and many more. [London Wedding Photographer]
Allister took up photography at a young age and studied it at Reading College of Art before graduating from The Bournemouth Institute of Art and Design. He spent some time working in London on fashion, advertising, and editorial photography. In 2004 he began photographing weddings and since that time his style has become more photojournalistic. Allister averages 50 exclusive documentary-style weddings per year. [Wiltshire Wedding Photographer]
I've been a wedding photographer for 14 years and have covered more than 400 weddings. I love documenting weddings and telling stories with my images. I'm a relaxed kind of guy and I think that really shines through in my photography style. I love the thrill of weddings - the challenges associated with the day, the need to balance creativity with the duty to my couples, the opportunity to work alongside my couples to create something truly important to them. I've always been creative and am passionate about design - In fact, I was working as a graphic designer when the opportunity to shoot my first wedding came along - I had a love for photography, but being a photographer had never occurred to me, certainly not a wedding photographer, given my introverted nature! A friend asked me to photograph his wedding, I loved it. A shy 17-year-old amongst hundreds of people, with my camera as my only 'defence' - it was out of character for sure, but It was amazing and I was hooked. That wedding led onto another, which led onto another - until a few years had passed and I realised I'd found something I loved. I moved away from design to set up my own wedding photography studio. That was 14 years ago. Now I work alongside my partner, who offers wedding films - and we cover around 25 weddings a year. I say I fell into weddings, but I think the truth is, I just found what I love! [East Sussex Wedding Photographer]
