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]
Winner of the Best Wedding Photographer award for London and The South East in 2015 and 2016. My background as a photojournalist at The Times and The Independent newspapers influences my documentary wedding photography approach. My photography seeks to reflect the wedding day rather than impose upon it. Natural photography rather than heavily stylized imagery. Simple storytelling. [West Sussex 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]
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 love of photography began when I was as a child, now years later we are able to while away snatched nostalgic time as memories of those family gatherings, warm summery days on the beach, school days, birthdays and celebrations, precious times spent with grandparents on the family farm in Jersey and significant people in our lives, come flooding back. When I became a parent I documented my son’s transformation from a newborn baby into adulthood – beginning with the day we brought him home from the hospital, that first mouthful of solids (!), the first day of infant school, secondary school, the first job…. proud and memorable moments. I’m a Leo and perhaps a little sentimental, but I’m fascinated by the power of photography to transport one back in time. My other passions in life include spending time with my family, friends, good food – both cooking and eating!, gardening and film – be it curling up on the sofa to watch a good film or a regular trip to The Curzon. [Kent 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]
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]
Hi there, I'm Michael, the lead photographer at Jackson & Co Photography. I'm drawn to light and colour, humour and emotion, elements that can be found in abundance at UK weddings. This career found me during a time in my life when creativity was completely absent and this joy of photography just wrestled it's way into my life and refused to let go. Since then, Jackson & Co Photography has blossomed and we've been a part of hundreds of weddings, met thousands of people and had countless moments that have made us smile and stuck in our memories forever. There will inevitably be photographers out there who can write more eloquently, who have more artistic motivations, but for me, I'm a simple creature. Give me a camera in my hand, an environment that buzzes and hums with energy and the freedom to create and I'll be endlessly happy. [Kent Wedding Photographer]
Hi, I'm Matt...and I have the best job in the world! I started shooting weddings in 2010 and I love having the opportunity and creative freedom to tell a wedding day story through emotion. I know it sounds super-cheesy, but I do see my job as being a storyteller and I really enjoy capturing a collection of images that really reflect my couples' personality. In my view, a wedding day shouldn't be condensed into a selection of posed and 'controlled' pictures, it should be a lovely, flowing account of all those spontaneous moments that happen throughout the day. Let's face it, those are the one's you're going to print and frame, and they're the one's that will make you smile for years to come. Right from my first wedding, I was very drawn to capturing those lovely candid moments between people, so my joining the Wedding Photojournalist Association felt like a natural step, and one that I'm very proud to have taken. Plus, I am constantly inspired by the work of my colleagues and am always seeking out new and alternative ways to capture and display emotion and love. A wise man once said to me: Moment, Light & Composition - if you can get two out of three, you're doing good...if you get the trifecta, you've smashed it! Needless to say...I'm always striving for the full house. [Kent 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]
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]
Since a young age, I was taking randomly portrait and landscape photographs at first, and later on, when I developed into a professional photographer naturally I was asked to photograph my first wedding years ago. At that moment I was amazed by the explosion of all emotions you can experience at one day altogether! Over the years of photographing weddings, I developed my personal style and taste. After trying different approaches to wedding photography, I fell in love with documenting weddings. I just love all those unexpected and special moments that can be captured and turned into memories - usually they do not repeat. 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 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. [London 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]
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.
