I enjoy creating images, through photography, design, film or drawings. My family and friends are what keep me ticking, photography taking a close second place. I cherish the happy moments in life and get pure joy from my kids when they smile. I have a degree in media production and feel fortunate I have been able to put them into practice, both professionally and personally. I love photography and cameras, a day spent playing with my camera, or experimenting with a new lens is a great day in my book! I am a geek, camera spec’s interest me. After working in the art publishing world for almost 5 years and now as a photographer, I am lucky enough to have worked with artists and photographers that inspire and motivate my own ambitions. I am a 2018 Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize Exhibitor. [Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer]
Hello, welcome to Mulu Photography, I'm Neil. As a wedding photographer, I have been capturing memories for ten years now, how time flies, and I have been lucky enough to have been invited to the homes of so many families to capture their wedding day, a responsibility I do not take lightly. I began studying photography at art school and then began to take it seriously sometime later when I wanted to develop a style for wedding photography. I studied and trained under some of the best wedding photography teachers in the country, such as Damien Lovegrove and Mike Garratt (The Trained Eye) and then began shooting weddings for friends. Soon afterward came the launching of Mulu Photography, wedding photography in St Albans and Harpenden, but available nationwide. It was then that I soon realised the traditional photo practice of wedding photography wasn't for me and capturing moments and telling a story across the day without interrupting the flow of the day was the way to go. I hope you agree. [Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer]
Steve is a full time wedding photojournalist living in Hertfordshire just north of London with his wife and three children. His interest in Photography started in his late teens. He saved up to buy a used Nikon F. He can still remember the excitement of his first photograph taken, developed and printed in his parents garage dark Room. At the time he was competing internationally in Athletics and this became his sole focus for many years. While photography was always there in the background calling him it was not until the last 5 years that the passion became his vocation. Initially sports photography seemed a natural choice but after shooting a couple of weddings he realised that this would be his primary focus and 200 weddings later he is very pleased with that decision. He is very much drawn to recording poignant moments in peoples lives. [Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer]
Hello, I am super new to the WPJA so will enter competitions very soon. I am a UK wedding photographer living in Hertfordshire with my husband Leon, two wonderful kids, and 5 pets. Leon is also my trusted second photographer who has been by my side for 25 years. Not just that he also has an incredible photographic eye. All my work is captured with professional Sony Mirrorless and Canon Cameras. I trained as a professional wedding photographer for a year with The Trained Eye Academy based in Amersham. I am passionate about engaging with my clients, understanding their needs, and capturing their life in a truly unique and individual way. We all see the world differently which is why people fascinate me and why I find weddings in particular, so special and exciting. I love photographing very natural moments as they happen to capture real, raw emotion. Anticipation, anxiety, joy, sadness, love, relief is all part of a wedding day. Photos that tell a story with feelings are priceless and tend to grow on you as time goes by. Documentary wedding photography will give you beautiful photographs with honest memories to cherish forever. I am passionate about delivering the very best service from our first meeting, capturing your wedding, and delivering your images through to aftercare such as ordering albums, prints, and wall art.

Photography has been a passion of mine since the age of 15. I can’t enter a room without looking at where light is lying, moving, or fading. I struggle to not look for frames wherever I go and whatever I do, constantly experimenting with composition, either with or even without my camera. Personally, I can be described as uninhibited. Honest (perhaps sometimes too honest). Hopeful. Inquisitive. Quirky. At times exceptionally (too) reflective. But I love people. I love them. I love observing us, I love photographing us. I love trying to understand us. [Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer]
Hello there. I’m Tom, a documentary wedding photographer from Cambridgeshire, UK. I took up photography while traveling in New Zealand a few years ago and have been working as a wedding photographer since 2016, covering weddings across the UK and from Kent to The Lake District. Away from photography, my hobbies include playing the guitar & drums, listening to a lot of classic rock, and pretty much any music from my teenage years in the 1990s. I'm rather addicted to The Simpsons (classic seasons only, mind you) and don't function in the morning until I've downed a coffee. I'm a bit of a night owl, my productive hours are 6 pm to 2 am. I love to travel. I've been across South East Asia, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and spent three months driving from coast to coast in the USA. [Cambridge Wedding Photographer]
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 and elopements 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]
Hello there – I’m Razvan and I’ve been shooting weddings and elopements for over 15 years now. What started as a challenge at my best friend’s wedding turned into a very expensive hobby at first and then into my grown up, full-time job. I’m forever grateful to my wonderful clients who trusted me with their precious wedding photos and continue to do so – nothing makes me happier than receiving their thanks after seeing their images. I love meeting in person with my clients and hear about their plans and questions for their big day over a cup of coffee – as with anything, good communication is the key to having happy clients. Weddings are somehow similar to car races – you only get one chance to capture moments and genuine emotions. My motto is that I’m not there to create the event but to try and capture it and turn it into an accurate story in images of the day. I’m a very friendly and personable guy, very focused while working and happy that many past clients are now very good friends. Other stuff that makes me happy besides my work is traveling, cooking (big barbecue fan) and good coffee. I live with my wife in a lovely small village and we are proud parents to Spoty the dog and Frankie the cat (we both believe he is really a dog in a feline body). [Bedfordshire Wedding Photographer]
One of the most touching things about wedding photography is how quickly you find yourself thrown into the heart of such an important, intimate occasion. It's a responsibility only a fool would take lightly. I take great care to behave appropriately but with a sense of cheerful fun and enthusiasm for what I do. I tend to prefer working alone as it's far easier to melt into the day and being unobtrusive is key to getting honest reportage photography. I aim to photograph as a reaction to what is happening around me, rather than be the cause of it. People rarely look lovelier than when they are simply being themselves. I always like to meet clients in advance, for the sake of both parties. It's important to be familiar with your photographer's approach as well as their portfolio. Your choice is a very personal one and identifying the style you're after will ensure you're happy with the results. As a sole trader, I always take the lead from my client and aim to be as flexible with my services as I can. I air any concerns at an early stage if I feel there is a discrepancy between the services I provide and my client's brief. I first became interested in taking photos when I was 11 years old. Within a year I had my hands on a Russian Zenith 122 - a tank of a camera! I then unearthed an antique enlarger inside a broom cupboard at school and persuaded the headmaster to set us up with some chemicals and paper. This was all a great help in developing a disciplined approach to photography. By 17 I had upgraded to Nikon 35mm and Pentax medium format outfits. I was invited to photograph the wedding of my art teacher's daughter and took the plunge. Thankfully it turned out rather well and in the last decade I've photographed over 160 weddings and civil partnerships in the UK and Europe. At 18, I studied film production at the Bournemouth Screen Academy and graduated with a BA (Hons) in Film Production. Film is my other passion and I've continued to make promos and award winning shorts for festivals since graduating. While studying, I taught photography part time at Bryanston School and made use of the excellent photographic facilities at university. My photography and film work go hand in hand as visual art forms for telling and documenting narratives. I was rather a late adopter of digital photography. I wasn't interested in the latest technology for the sake of something shiny and new but felt that by 2005 the resolution and sensitivity in low light was a sufficient improvement on the available film stocks. On average I've upgraded my main outfit every 3 years and my current crop of top end Nikon cameras and lenses have given me unbridled freedom, particularly in low light conditions. Because I spend the time mastering the density, contrast, colour and sharpness of my pictures in post production, most of my results are indistinguishable from film. My guiding principle is that if an effect wouldn't be achieved in the dark room, it's best to avoid it on the computer! Garish effects may bring something to a lackluster picture but they also date quickly. A good picture has no need for such embellishment. Consequently my work retains a quality that will, I hope, stand the test of time. I grew up in Hampshire, Dorset & South Wales and often visit family & friends in all three. I live and work in North London. [London Wedding Photographer]
I live in a beautiful village called Chalfont St Giles in Buckinghamshire with my wife Philippa and our Spanish Water Dog, Huxley. We moved into the area in 2018 after living in London most of our lives, trading the hustle and bustle for village life with fresh air and miles of walks. Fortunately, the neighbouring town has a drive-thru Starbucks and a service station that is open 24 hours so I can get my fix of coffee and Cadbury’s buttons! I never really set out to be a photographer but my career paths have led me to this happy place. I’ve always been interested in visual arts and how imagery and words can evoke emotions and responses and for a long time I worked in marketing and advertising. As my photography has developed over the years I find that my passion has opened a new perspective for me on delivering images for my brides and grooms that they will love, that they will treasure and that will become part of their family storytelling. It’s more than just being a photographer, it’s about being trusted to capture not only the images of the day but the emotions, creating a story of the wedding day for families to cherish.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The 'newlywed' shots are simply stunning - it's hard to choose which to frame. In my view, the photos are one of the most important parts of a wedding because they inform many of your memories for years to come. When we look back now, and when we look back in the future, the photos will instantly bring back the warmth and happiness we felt on that perfect day in Provence. And for that, we can't thank you enough, Damion.
Dear Nel and Leon, You are such wonderful and talented people. Your photos really captured the essence of our day. Every little detail, guests enjoying themselves, and all the family and couple portraits; everything was covered. You really became part of our day; it felt like you were friends who just happened to have a camera! We couldn’t have chosen better photographers. We have had so many compliments on the online gallery and we cannot wait to receive our printed album. They quality of the shots, the lighting, capturing silly moments too; we’re also looking forward to having some portraits on canvas in our home. Thank you so very much Nel and Leon. Lots of love, Kira and David

Dear Harry, Thank you for photographing our wedding day! You really captured the atmosphere and we will treasure the photos and memories. It is lovely to have such great images, even more so as you were so adept at being in the right place at the right time, without us even knowing you were there! Many thanks, Sarah & Richie. x
