The UK's top WPJA wedding photographer for 2016 and 2019, coming 11th worldwide in 2016 and 9th worldwide in 2019. With a background in Fine Art and qualifications from London's world-renowned University of the Arts, photography has always been a passion and I am fortunate that it is also my full-time job. Various jobs and projects including travel photojournalism in Cuba, birth photography and covering the 2005 Cannes Film Festival for French newspaper Le Monde eventually led me to documentary wedding photography, which has been my full-time career since early 2009. After almost twenty years of living in London, I now live by the beach in Kent with my husband Steve, another photographer, and our French Bulldog, Ozzy. I take on wedding commissions here in the UK and abroad. [London 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]
I fell in love with the moments I saw through my lens…this is the reason that makes me become a visual storyteller. Back to the very first step, my shooting journey has begun with techniques and shooting tips like everyone who loves taking photos. Practices…trainings…lessons…are my daily life since I was a student of architecture and design. My shooting passion also drove me to live and learn in London which gives me opportunities to explore the perspective of my lens. Step by step throughout the journey in London, I got a chance to work with the leading professional photographer of wedding photojournalist of the UK. My chance also wide opened for the fashion shoot. It’s come with opportunities which let me explore more on the photography road map to work with leading magazines and do advertising photoshoot for the famous brands in various industries. During the time, I also had chances to do portrait photography for individuals, couples, families, friends. I’ve learned a lot more about how to capture the very touchy-feely moments from portrait shooting. I am still learning from every shot that I take to continue my visual storytelling journey. For me, all chances were not just a chance, they were significant experiences that have made me believe that a photographer is an engaged storyteller who has a trained, creative, and talented eye to see a photographic opportunity and make a decision for the moment. With the strong feeling and belief that every moment is precious and perfect in itself, I wish I will put myself more engaged in demonstrating the moments like creating genuine art…to tell the story from time to time Today, it’s more than 10 years of shooting experience, there is ONE THING that I’ve found. This ONE THING has never changed, and this ONE THING makes me believe in what I do and make me be who I am. This ONE THING is THE TRUE MOMENT. It is real. It happens only once. It stays forever. Therefore, for me, a perfect photo is a capture of the TRUE MOMENT which will keep and tell the story. TRUE MOMENT is my inspiration for shooting every single photo. It’s not just a shooting style…it’s beyond a signature…it is my honest to capture the once in a lifetime moment that I fell in love since the beginning and I will continue my journey as a man who loves capturing the moments.

Marianne is a quirky documentary wedding photographer with a strong signature style that focuses on framed compositions and subtle humour, often relishing in the joy of human normalcy and raw expressions. She also teaches a repeatedly sold-out workshop series called FU Flash, tackling a much regarded boring topic and making it comprehensible, and she was a speaker at Snap Photography Festival 2018. Alongside shooting an average of 40 weddings a year, she shoots production stills for Secret Cinema, the biggest film-based immersive experience company in the UK. [London Wedding Photographer]
My photographs have always been defined by my love of geometry, composition and available light. I’ve spent my life seeking those decisive moments where the interplay of angles and lines come together within the frame. For me a photograph should always be visually stimulating but it must have the ability to take the viewer back to a past moment and evoke an emotional reaction. Born in 1978, in the middle of the summer in Athens.. And fast forward to 2002: I studied Mechanical Engineering at Technological institution of Athens learning how things work and more importantly how to break them. I then worked in this field for 8 years, but this career path left me searching for a creative outlet. I’ve always liked photography but never thought in my wildest dreams I could make a career out of it. In 2010 i came home with a new mindset and determination, to do something more fulfilling and challenging. Something that would engage me creatively. I succeeded in joining the Department of Photography and Audio-visual Arts, making my hobby my life pursuit. I undergraduate with Ηonors in documentary photography . In 2012, I continued to study Documentary Photography and i attended the “Photojournalism and Documentary Photography” program at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York I completed my studies with a residence in the international research programme of residence in the National School of Photography (Ecole Nationale et superieure de la photographie) the only art school in France dedicated exclusively to photography. I had produced pictures on humanitarian crisis, focusing in social issues around the globe. Some of the countries and projects include India, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, France, Italy, Esthonia, Sweden, Finland, and United States of America among others. Since 2012, my photo projects began to appear in websites, newspapers and magazines worldwide (Le monde, Guardian, Le journal de la photographie, I-D magazine, Vice, National Geographic and others. In 2013 i have been Awarded as one of the best 10 Young Photographers at Athens Photofestival and the following year i was in the 1st Place, at Sony World photography Awards. But it's the story-telling part of working as a documentary photographer that has the most influence on how I now work as a documentary wedding photographer and this is how my editorial photography has shaped my wedding photography. I spent a long time learning about light, about people and about story-telling. It’s not easy, telling a story with pictures. [London Wedding Photographer]
I love taking photos, I love weddings & I love my job. My approach to weddings is unobtrusive and documentary. I try to stay invisible but this can be hard at times as I am 6ft tall. Apart from the documentary type of shots, you can also expect from me - shots of details and some artistic portraiture. I am camera shy and super awkward in front of it so I feel some couples pain and what they might be going through during couple wedding photo session. So I am happy to direct or distract you guys to get the relaxed and loving photos you will cherish forever. I am happy to give some guidance if needed and share my vast experience in a London and International Wedding Industry. I have been shooting weddings for over 6 years. I documented the happy day for couples from England, Sweden, Poland, the Caribbean, India, China, Nigeria, and the Arabic Peninsula. I studied photography at Central St Martins College of Art and Design some time ago. Actually, it was so long ago that we worked on films, not digital files ;-)) My first camera was Russian Zenith and my first photos from it were far from perfection. Its been a long and bumpy ride for me to get where I am now but I would not change it for a world. To be a wedding photographer is a dream come true!!! [London Wedding Photographer]
Bedford, UK based wedding photographer documenting weddings across Europe and India. My approach is to be unobtrusive and simply to work around the ceremony, capturing those spontaneous moments, hiccups, laughter and tears that make the day so special. My photographs tell the story of the day as it happens, and the immense joy of the wedding is captured wonderfully just as it comes, freely and without force. [London 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]
The more life experience I get, the more I realise the importance of being in the moment. Playing with my children rather than observing them over my laptop; Watching a movie with my wife and just enjoying her company, the easy silence, the film and forgetting the stream of social media updates; Taking the dog out for a walk and just enjoying the walk. As they say, "waking up to smell the roses". My approach to photography is a reflection of who I am: in the moment, spontaneous, observant. I look for shards of interest in the ordinary - maybe a touch of humour, a fleck of irony, a cool reflection. I do that because I'm mindful that I'm here right now and there's always something going on - right now! My other half and I have three children and a dog. I've shot weddings all over the British Isles and USA. I'd love to hear from couples who share my passion for photographic storytelling, who use Pinterest for ideas, not rules; and who place importance in images that reflect who they really are, not what trends tell them to be. [London 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’m Kari and although I speak with a bit of a ‘yank’ accent, I’m a London-based wedding photographer. I work with brides and grooms that are passionate about their wedding photography, helping them in any way I can to ensure they are going to throw an amazing party for their family and friends. When I’m not working, I love exploring London. I’ll meander around an area that I’ve not been to before. I like to get lost and then find my way out, passing through shops, art galleries, stopping for coffee. I’ll happily walk miles, and I love the feeling of “Ooh, that’s a pretty street! Let’s see what’s down there!” I love reading about design, modern architecture, and street art. I love a good conversation over a tasty meal with my husband. When we’re out, we like to swing dance, going to comedy clubs and whatever weird events we can find happening in London. I love weddings. A good wedding for me is about family and friends, all your favourite people, coming together for an amazing celebration, full of love and happiness. I love the packed dance floors, the emotional Dads, the slightly awkward but hilarious grooms’ speeches, and seeing two people celebrate their commitment together. [London Wedding Photographer]
It was my interest in the news and events of our lives and times that drew me to photography—to photojournalism at the outset. 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 Wall Street Journal, the Guardian, Economist, Vogue, Time and many others besides, distributed worldwide via agencies including Getty Images and AFP. Photojournalism still fills a lot of my time, and I suspect 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. In essence, that means I don’t set up scenes or direct what goes on but instead record the day as it is, capturing moments and events as they unfold in their own way. It's an unobtrusive-yet-intimate way of shooting that I strive for, and hopefully, you'll hardly even know I’m there—then later be amazed by the pictures I made. 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. I'll look forward to hearing from you and learning about your plans. [London Wedding Photographer]
I'm Steven. I'm a husband, a father and a wedding reportage photographer. My career began in advertising where I rose to the ranks of Art Director for two of London's top ad agencies. Turning away from the fictitious nature of advertising my passion for telling stories took over and I now pursue something all together more real - capturing the greatest day of your lives. I'll blend into the background, marrying stunning compositions with real, raw emotion to capture all the joy, tears, love and laughter of your wedding day. [London Wedding Photographer]
I haven’t always been a photographer. (Obviously. Before this there was school and being born and whatnot.) But what I mean is before becoming a photographer I was a writer. And although I had some success (I even spent a little time writing for Banksy – street art to weddings.. obvious step, right?) I have to say being a struggling writer loses some of its glamour as you start to ease away from your early thirties. But then five years ago I met my muse and because of her I picked up a camera for pretty much the first time in ten years. A couple of years later I was a professional photographer. And a couple of years after that I married my muse. So to say I’m a little bit blindsided by the life and success that has come my way is an understatement. But here I am and loving every minute of it. It’s not really a volte face though. My background in fiction feeds nicely into my style of photography. I’m seeking to tell a story — whether it’s in weddings, or fashion or straight photojournalism, I’m always looking for the smaller moments that seem to encapsulate something bigger. The moments between moments if you like. Images that seem to be more than a simple moment frozen in time. Although beautiful images are pretty good too! And I like to think I’ve married the two a little bit (excuse the wedding-based pun.) My wedding images, although inherently documentary, do carry a certain editorial feel to them. And that’s pretty much my style in a nutshell — documentary editorial. I didn’t work at this style. It found me. But it works and it sits well with me. Mostly because I don’t like categories, I think. I don’t see myself as a wedding photographer. I see myself as a photographer who will turn up to your wedding and take photos. I think it’s worth making this distinction because I don’t want to turn up to your wedding with any preconceived ideas about what your day should look like ahead of time. Every wedding is different because every person is different and your wedding photos should reflect you, not me. All I do is frame that with a particular eye. To me wedding photos should be the wedding day’s dream of itself — ie., a beautiful and heightened version of the reality of your day, but still very much about you and the day. [London Wedding Photographer]
There is a pigeon who lives in my garden and regularly walks into my house looking for food. He is called Gary. As I write this Gary is looking at me from the edge of my pond. He seems angry. Maybe because I feed the fish more than him. I keep Koi because they are like living ornaments and incredibly therapeutic to watch. I have an AGA which is ridiculously expensive to run but it cooks food like no other contraption. My smart meter is always in the red but my dinners are always delicious. I can do a really good impression of a goat. I don't take life too seriously, I do all my own stunts and listen to hip hop every day. My life is full of contrasts, Kendrick Lamar and Koi, Tribe called quest and researching which house plants improve air quality most efficiently... I began my photographic journey at 16. My art teachers hated my abstract paintings so I moved to what I thought at the time was the most literal medium to depict reality - I landed on photography. My father influenced my artistic endeavours, teaching me to draw and how to understand images from an early age. He would turn our bathroom into a darkroom and print large format glass plates. My travels and diverse interests have helped shape my style. I am a lover and admirer of people, I have no real interest in things or places. I am also a lover of storytelling, from the establishing shots or Terence Malick to the re-arranged narrative structures of a Quinton Tarrantino, establishing narrative has always been at the heart of my love of imagery. I shoot approximately twenty weddings per year. I invest so heavily in each one that I am both physically and emotionally exhausted by the time it has finished. I believe in order to tell a story, you have to live it. To go on that roller-coaster with each family every week is magical, but it also means shooting sixty weddings in a year is an impossibility for me, something that I couldn't even conceive. It's not about money, it's about crafting the best set of images possible. I have a degree in photography, but I do not feel as if this influenced my ability in the slightest. Completing the degree made me more of a writer than a practitioner. My interests outside of photography are numerous and eclectic. Currently, I am fascinated by ancient Egyptian philosophy and how stories and knowledge are encoded into our society. Buy me a drink and I'll tell you all about it. Weddings are fun, emotional, crazy events. I want to tell the story from the morning nerves to the dancing on the tables. Remember, if partying was easy, it wouldn't be called partying hard. [London 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]
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 started photographing weddings as a way to support myself while doing my MA in photography (more years ago then I care to admit) and it stayed with me, more or less thorough all these years. I enjoy taking part in the happiest day of a couple’s life, documenting all the fleeting moments and details. Documenting is a key word here - I don’t want to script your day, choreograph your joy - instead I try to be in the moment, very present, so I don’t miss anything. I give you your space and just wander around with the camera glued to my eye. I’m quietly observing the action so I can capture it without disturbing the flow. I will give you poetic, but honest images that would hold meaning and bring back wonderful memories. [London Wedding Photographer]
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]
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]
I was born in Manchester almost 30 years ago to my eclectic fashion designer Mum and entrepreneurial Dad. Growing up I absolutely loved the indie, vibrant, musical, grimy, authentic vibe of Manchester and it served me well as a backdrop for all my creative endeavours. I was always in the school art room and constantly making a mess of my parents home with my collecting and collaging. I was always the one following my friends around with my vintage film cameras at all the gigs, nights out and Oasis concerts. In 2012 I graduated from Central Saint Martins art school in London with a BA in fine art photography and went on to start my photography business full time. I've had my photography featured both online, in magazines and in galleries in London, New York, and Tel Aviv. I've photographed everything from births to boudoir, from street photography to celebrity portraits but my favourite is by far weddings. It's everything in one. The candid moments, the emotional ceremonies, the bridal portraits, the dreamy first look, the tears, the laughter, the wild dancing, the sparkler send-offs. I feel like I've traveled through time by the end of the night and I love every crazy moment of it. I usually work with my husband who is a very talented filmmaker and photographer (if I do say so myself). We have traveled the world together and we are hooked, we've got that travelling bug. Our favourite places so far are Montenegro and Cuba. If you haven't been yet, GO! We got married in early 2018 and it was amazing! Having done it ourselves it gives such a perspective on what the day can/does feel like. It's great for us to know what it's like to love and trust your photographer and just enjoy the day without a moments hesitation. [London Wedding Photographer]
Welcome to Catching the Moments Photography. My name is Lukas. I describe my style in three words I would say natural, relaxed and unobtrusive. Candid moments, real emotions and reactions, tiny details you've planned for months, atmosphere, love, laughter and tears. I aim to record your wedding day as it happens, without posing or arranging anything, and most importantly without getting in your way. I believe every wedding is unique and should be treated that way. The thing is, the photos are about the day, not the other way around. Your wedding day, without directing or influencing the events. I won’t boss you around lining up for endless group shots. Instead, I will let you enjoy your wedding day with your friends and family. I won’t get in the way or tell you what to do. Instead, I will discreetly accompany you throughout the day. If that sounds like something you’re after, then you’ve come to the right place. COVERING WEDDINGS THROUGHOUT THE UK AND ABROAD Each year I shoot weddings all over Scotland and the rest of the UK, including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, St Andrews, Aberdeen, the North of England and London, to name just a few. I'm also available for destination weddings. [Edinburgh Wedding Photographer]
Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 7 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere. [Antwerpen 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.

I have been taking photographs for most of my life. I have a passion for capturing what is happening around me, with no intervention or interruption, and I love a good wedding. I've been a full-time wedding photographer since 2006 and have been fortunate to attend many hundreds of weddings in every corner, and almost every county, of the UK. My work has been recognised repeatedly by the WPJA and other organisations, and I have one of the largest running totals of award-winning images in the UK. I like to immerse myself in your wedding, there from the preparations until the party is in full swing, and all I ask is that you and your guests forget about the photography and enjoy the day to the fullest. Your reward will be a thorough record of the events and emotions of the whole day. The REAL story of your wedding. Based in Derbyshire with my wife and two kids, I shoot weddings all over the UK and worldwide. [Derbyshire Wedding Photographer]
Wedding photographer in Paris for 5 years, I do cover pre-wedding, elopements, weddings engagements sessions in the most beautiful place of Paris such the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, the Trocadero, and Bir Hakeim Bridge. With more than 200 weddings covered, more than 500 engagement sessions, my style of photography during weddings is resolutely turned towards photo-reporting, in order to tell the story of your wedding. I make only a few photos posed (that in the photos of a group or couple for example) to privilege spontaneous moments. [Paris Wedding Photographer]
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]
I have been documenting weddings for 15 years and have shot more than 600 weddings. My love for creating images has captured memories that will last a lifetime for many satisfied couples. On average I photograph around 25 weddings a year both in the UK and abroad. I have photographed weddings as far afield as America and Brazil. I started photographing weddings in 2004. My local market at that time had very few wedding photographers working in Devon, and so with little to no experience of photography, I embarked on a 1-year intensive training course. After this course, I set up my own business, but have continued with my training. I regularly attend workshops in America and have also been a speaker at many of these, educating today's up and coming photographers. I have have had the pleasure of photographing the weddings of James Corden, Joe Hart, and Darren Bent. Outside of photography I am a keen cyclist and have cycled to Amsterdam from London raising money for Prostate Cancer UK. I am a husband to Anita and father to Dillon and Max. [Devon Wedding Photographer]
I was voted as one of the best wedding photographers in London by the Evening Standard. I have shot over 1500 weddings in my career, so a I have a huge amount of experience. I am now based in the South of France. My style is very much a mixture of documentary photography and some beautifully arranged groups & portraits. The aim is to give you both but to make sure that the groups and portraits don’t take ages, so you can make the most of your day. I choose gentle direction as opposed to anything cheesy. My Book "A Guide to Wedding Photojournalism" is an Amazon Best-Seller. Read my 5 star Google Review to get an insight of what my previous clients thought. [Hérault 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 Jeremy James, a trained a photojournalist and full-time professional wedding professional shooting documentary wedding photography for stylish relaxed couples. I work with clients who want amazing wedding photography but don’t want to spend their day taking orders from a more traditional photographer. My clients know they’ll look their best – when they are doing what they do best: having fun with little interruption. My skill lies in seeing and composing beautiful candid frames, but I always allow some time for some beautiful, natural, portraiture. I honed my documentary wedding photography skills in editorial photography, starting my career shooting for national newspapers and glossy magazines. I photographed everything from news and fashion to celebrities and royalty before transitioning into full-time wedding photography. [Norfolk-UK Wedding Photographer]
I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings since 2010. One of the best things in life is a good story and that's what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by. Preferring to capture your day as it happens, I love working with couples who want to relax and enjoy their wedding day and not have to pose for photo after photo. I get my best images when you're just being yourselves - natural light and natural emotions! [Norfolk-UK Wedding Photographer]
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]
I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in County Meath, Ireland and I absolutely love what I do. I started shooting weddings back in 2002 and it’s been an epic adventure that’s taken me to every single corner of this gorgeous little island I live on. I’ve picked up a bunch of awards along the way including a very recent one from the US-based Wedding Photojournalist Association. My aim when I shoot a wedding is to observe and capture the day as it naturally unfolds. I don’t direct anything. This allows everyone to relax and just enjoy the moment. I love to tell the story of the day, to capture the true atmosphere so that when you look back at my pictures you’ll not only remember how it looked but how it felt. A little about myself… I live just 20 km outside Dublin City in the countryside of County Meath with my wife Natalia and my 5-year-old son Zac. In my spare time, I love to mountain bike, snowboard and ride my motorcycle. [County Meath 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 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]
Hi, I'm Corina: candid and fun Brighton wedding photographer adventuring all over the world! I've always had a soft spot for photography and felt drawn towards it. As a kid, I used to dig up my grandmother's shoebox full of old photographs. I would stare for hours at photos of people and relatives I never met, trying to build a story around them. What were they like? How was their life? Where would they spend their time? With whom? This curiosity made me realise I have a passion for people and their stories. I had photography as a hobby for 10 years, doing mostly portraits and street photography. When I started my work as a full-time wedding photographer one year ago, I knew exactly what I wanted: to capture comprehensive life stories that will be meaningful over years to come. My work is all about capturing a crazy mixture of feelings, emotions and moments that come once in a lifetime. Through my documentary approach, I get to show them as true and raw as they come: tears of laughter, sincere hugs, little gestures that define us or spicy dance moves. [East Sussex Wedding Photographer]
I'm a wedding photographer based in Venice Italy but I work all over Italy and abroad. I've been working in the wedding industry for the past ten years and I love what I do, I love to capture the happiest moments of my client's life and being part of all of that! My style is called "wedding reportage" or "wedding photojournalism" which means that I avoid static poses and I prefer to catch the real moments and even if I'll be with bride and groom for the entire wedding, they won't notice me. This way they can act normally without feeling weird in front of a camera. [Venice Wedding Photographer]

Hi, I’m Jenny, a UK documentary wedding photographer living by the sea in West Sussex. I’m passionate about capturing moments, and can happily people-watch for hours, camera in hand. My version of your wedding story is created through emotion, how you felt as you said your vows, the interactions of family and friends, the tears of joy and the laughter. I’m friendly and relaxed and pride myself on being unobtrusive and making everyone feel at ease. In a former life, I’ve been an assistant editor, marketing consultant and trust fundraiser for a homeless persons charity. A 5-year move to America with my family gave me the perfect opportunity to turn my hobby into my dream career. Twelve years on, I still get excited about each and every wedding I become a part of, and challenge myself creatively to capture truly unique images for every single one of my couples. I’m a real foodie with a love of travel and when I’m not creating wedding memories, enjoy nothing more than exploring new places with my husband and our two talented and funny teenagers. And home wouldn’t be home without Einstein and Echo, our playful British Blue Shorthair cats. So that’s a bit about me. If I sound like your kind of person, please get in touch - I’d love to know a bit about you and the person you’re planning to spend the rest of your life with. [West Sussex Wedding Photographer]

Hi, I’m Laura! Or maybe I should say “Hi, I’m a lucky girl” because my work is my greatest passion! I'm an Italian wedding photographer, based in my beloved Tuscany, but I love traveling and having the opportunity to tell the story of your wedding or elopement day wherever you want. I love spontaneity and people who have the courage to express their emotions, so my photographic style is a mix of photojournalistic wedding photography and romantic couple portraits, not posed but natural. I'm available for destination weddings in Italy: Tuscany, Val d'Orcia, Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast, Venice and wherever you want me to be with you. I have always been, since childhood, deeply attracted to people, intrigued by their actions, their thoughts, and especially by what they feel and express. I went to school with my little Nikon camera, one of the most fitting gift that my parents could do! I filled rolls with faces, situations, emotions … review photos helped me to settle the most beautiful memories. I remember that I tried to photograph the joy, the student spirit, the complicity, friendship, love … and still, today, reviewing those shots, I feel again the same feelings and emotions. In this way, I understand that the photograph has enormous power in the life of each of us. When I grow up, all this turns into a job, I’m a psychologist psychotherapist specializing in the use of photography as a tool of psychological insight. The transition to becoming a wedding photographer was by accident… To tell the stories of the people through images, was the completion and integration of my passions. I love… …Cooking, as the conviviality shared with loved ones …The summer, when I sip a glass of chilled white wine on the beach at sunset …The winter, when the noisy storms contrast with the silence of a book, a sofa, and a plaid …Playing hide and seek with my cat, I swear! …And say what I think even when it can sound inconvenient! I could not live without… …My few but trusted friends …My car …The fear that gives me the courage I think… …The sensibility, the determination, the curiosity, the accord with own emotions, the knowledge, the continuous research to discover and to expose ourselves, can move any mountain! …The Love, the real one, that has nothing to do with our unfulfilled needs, exist …But to live it authentically, first of all, we have to learn loving ourselves! [Florence Wedding Photographer]
Hi, here's a little bit about me... - I love going to Gin Festivals! - I love weddings...I even had one of my own! - I had my five minutes of fame on The Gadget Show. - I love gadgets, Krispy Kremes, lemon drizzle cake, chilli sauce, wearing bright funky socks. - I suppose I’m a bit of a geek...and love my Apple toys. I've been shooting weddings since 2006, and for the last couple of years my wife Leanne has worked with me shooting video. I'm based in Shropshire (UK) and shoot weddings all over the UK and worldwide. I believe a wedding should be a great big party and not a great big performance. I love capturing all the fun, natural moments during a wedding. [Shropshire 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]
The creative and graphic sense of my pictures is for me a constant obsession, I play with lights, shadows, composition, speed, and colors. I do my best to deliver as many beautiful pictures as possible. Before the wedding, it is important for me to meet both of the bride and groom in order to build a bond of trust which will allow the couple to feel comfortable in front of me and my camera during the wedding day : the goal, as always is to capture natural moments of love, happiness, emotion, and complicity between the bride and groom. In love with my city (and also my wife!), I know Paris like my pocket and I love shooting love sessions, elopement weddings or engagement sessions with the couples in secret places in the "Paris des Lumières! » I am used to traveling in the countryside and also abroad if the future bride and groom need me to travel with them. I speak English, Italian, Spanish if you don't feel comfortable in French and, of course, I can travel as far as your wedding will bring you (even to the Moon and back)! [Paris Wedding Photographer]

I’m Tim Stephenson, the photographer behind Tim Stephenson Photography. I’m somewhere around the 40 mark, married to Angela since 2008 and Dad to our two usually wonderful children – Sam & Ellie. Based in Brooke, just outside of Norwich (Norfolk, UK), but shooting weddings just about anywhere, I’ve always had a passion for photography; starting with developing my own black & white film & prints many moons ago back in school. I shot my first wedding in 2008, quickly realised that I absolutely loved capturing the emotion & fun of the day – and it all kind of grew from there! After shooting a few early weddings for friends and family, I quickly realised that I absolutely love telling a story through images – and still can’t quite believe that I get to do what I adore doing! With every single wedding being unique and amazing in its own right, this isn’t something that ever gets old! Over the last few years, I’ve been honoured to shoot weddings at a whole host of wonderfully exquisite venues around the UK, including Norfolk & East Anglia – with repeat visits to some of the finest venues in our wonderful county.

Hi Dylan - We've spent every spare minute looking at our prints. The way you've captured the light, colour, movement and emotion in each of the pictures is just incredible. It's hard to explain but it's like each picture comes to life when you look at it. We're noticing things that we didn't see online and we are having so much fun reliving our day! Thanks again
We really enjoyed working with you back in August 2014, you took the time in getting to know us and what we wanted. You were professional, discreet and nothing was too much to ask. On the day we had an issue in that we were unable to take our traditional photographs in a certain place and so we were unable to have them. I didn't need to worry though as you were very creative and took natural action shots of all my family and friends which definitely made up for the earlier issue. I love looking at my wedding photographs and I always get comments on how beautiful and natural the photographs are. Thank you Ben.
Working with you was fantastic - you are very professional, whilst still being very approachable and great fun. Your photos of our wedding in Weymouth last October are absolutely stunning and everything we'd hoped for and more. We opted for the top tier package and we're really glad we did - made things so much easier and less stressful on the day - not having to worry about if you captured everything (since you brought along a 2nd photographer) and you were there until the wee hours too. Before the wedding day we met up with you over a few pints and explained our hopes & ideas for the day which you took on board and wove into your own style. What was captured was all the beautiful little natural moments that we wanted, plus all the big formal photos too. Couldn't have asked for more! You also attended the wedding in a great suit, so blended right in and didn't make anyone feel awkward or intruded upon. So glad we picked you for our photos that'll be hung on our walls, and our family's walls for many many years to come smile emoticon
You shot our Dorset wedding back in September and I have to say from start to finish you was a pleasure to work with the pictures have come out better than we could have wished for. We opted for the second shooter (Chris) option and they worked superbly as a team. All of our guests commented on what a great duo they were! Thanks Ben for giving us such great photos to remind us of our special day! Mr & Mrs Dawson
We were so fortunate to have found you, you were absolutely fantastic at documenting our wedding day in exactly the style we were looking for. You were brilliant at making everything look natural, even got me to smile on camera, which is a feat in itself! Looking back at our photos you have captured the buzz and the genuine emotion in everyone, I can't help but smile every time I look at them. My friends and family were thrilled to have you with us on the day, all mentioning how lovely, unobtrusive and polite you were. You couldn't have made a better impression and it was an absolute pleasure to have you document our wedding, we truly can't recommend you highly enough! "
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
We received your wonderful gift of a USB stick yesterday and cannot thank you enough for what was within! They are just amazing - all of them. Just breathtakingly stunning! I cried when I viewed some of them as it was like re-living the day all over again (I cried then too of course). We are so pleased. I have had to look at them again and again as each time I do, I see more and more, which is an incredidle feat to achieve. Your mirror work is outstanding - what a talent. I have sent some to Emma and she is thrilled and even James liked what he saw - which is a first. We now have the task of choosing some favourites which will be very difficult. Thanks again for everything - for the day itself and your wonderful presence, and especially for the pictures which are just phenomenally brilliant. I have *** to thank as he wasn't available and recommended you, so if you see him do tell him. What a find you were, so pleased he was booked (don't tell him that bit!) Thanks again and take care and keep up the outstanding work. I shall continue to look at your blog and view your work as I have a deep appreciation of what you produce. In fact, to be able to re-produce emotions through pictures that will last forever is quite unusual and requires skill and talent. I have seen many other photographers sites and some do not really capture it.
Hi Dylan, Thanks so so much for the photographs. We got back from honeymoon yesterday and are feeling rather blue but this has brightened up our mood and day like nothing else. Thanks so much for magically taking us back to that wonderful day. The photos are absolutely stunning and the whole family agrees. Best wishes, Charlie
We were recommended to you by a mutual friend and weren't disappointed, our wedding shots were first class, original ideas, excellent reportage style shots we wanted and some clever tricks with the evening sunset. Working with you was brilliant and I would recommend you for any occasion!
Hi Lyndsey, Hopefully you're not too frazzled after your marathon weekend of weddings. I meant to say some of this when we saw you at Claire and Elliott's wedding, but didn't really get the chance. In a nutshell I just wanted to say thank you properly for photographing our wedding. Erin and I never seem to have it easy, I'd say we've had more than our fair share of things going wrong since we got together. But the last few months have been the hardest by a long way. It's only since Erin's dad died that I've come to fully understand just how much he meant to Erin, and how much she's always worshipped and idolised him. She's still coming to terms with the loss, while at the same time unconsciously assuming his role in the family- sorting out all the practical problems since his death, and being the voice of reason when there's a difference of opinion even while she tries to grieve. I sort of sit at the sidelines, and I can see she is the best of what her dad was, which is something I don't think she'll ever really appreciate. But then her dad was too unassuming to ever recognise his own importance too. Personally, I was always slightly nervous around him, the way many guys are around the father of the love of their life. Not that he did anything to warrant my edginess, it was just that he was always so capable and knowledgeable- the first person you'd want in a crisis. I looked forward to getting to know him better, to fix an old car up with him, or work with him fixing up our first house. None of that is meant to make you feel bad, or sorry for us- we're a solid and otherwise happy couple, and I know we'll endure this and anything else that life throws at us. The reason I'm saying it is so that you can maybe appreciate our gratitude for you agreeing to photograph our wedding. I know you already know, that just as your photography catches the mood and emotion of the day, so it also catches the thoughts and interactions of the people, and so shows people as they really are. Your photos really do show Brian as he was. One of Erin's favourite pictures of the day is that of her with her dad outside the registry office. It's like her aunt said recently- it doesn't just look like Brian, it's everything about him in a nutshell. The way he brought calm to Erin, the way he was always there for her while never being in the limelight. The way he was the perfect father to her. We talked at Elliott and Claire's wedding about how the photographs are the only physical thing that stays with you after you get married, and after the last few months the photos you took of Brian on the day have become even more important to Erin. Maybe another photographer could have taken pictures that showed the same thing, but then again maybe not. I don't know why you agreed to be our photographer- you no doubt would have had other requests offering more money closer to home. It sounds trite to say, but I really can't think of any greater act of kindness toward the two of us than yours. Reading back through the twaddle I've written, a lot of it sounds trite, but it is all true. So really, thank you. More than a silly email could say, thank you.
