Worcestershire wedding reportage and elopement photography by Tom Beynon, of West Midlands, England

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]

Photo of Scotland wedding and elopement photographer Lukas Powroziewicz

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]

Belfast wedding and elopement photography by Jonathan Ryder, of County Antrim Northern Ireland

I've been a full-time photographer for over 6 years now. Photographing people being people is the best thing ever and I know I'll still be doing it long after I've photographed my last wedding. I'm married to my best friend, Róisín. Somehow she gets me and I'm lucky I have her. We live in Belfast with our two kids, Dáithí and Isla, in an old townhouse that's got bags of charm (and NO space). The kids are everything to us. On weekends off, we fuel-up with coffee and take them out adventuring. [Belfast Wedding Photographer]

David Pullum Wedding and Elopement Photography for United Kingdom, England and Devon

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.

East Yorkshire wedding photography by Patrick Mateer

Hi, I'm Patrick, I am a documentary wedding photographer based in Yorkshire, England. I work with my wife Hollie Mateer. Our studio is called M and G Wedding Photography and we work alongside another photographer, Matt Godman. My dad, when he was working, was an Art and Animation lecturer, art and design teacher, and freelance artist. He always had a camera with him - a Nikon F2 was his main camera, . He was a very trusting father as he let me use it from an early age. So I started taking photos from a very early age. I studied art at school and was lucky to have access to their darkroom. From school, I went to art college and then University. Though I studied fine art, I always specialised in photography. At university, I worked in many different ways, shooting landscapes, street photography, portraits. I was influenced by Adams, Eggleston, McCullin, Meyorvitz, Friedlander, Frank, Arbus, Wall. At university, I met my close friend Matt Godman. After graduation, we both started shooting weddings independently. After some years, we decided to pool our talents and experience. M and G Wedding Photography was born. In 2015 I met my wife Hollie Mateer. She joined M and G Wedding Photography in 2017. Hollie is my wife, my best friend, the best photographer I know - and the most wonderful mother. We love working together, in particular, shooting together. She continually pushes me to be a better photographer, just through her sheer talent. I still shoot images on film today - particularly on holiday or days out. Rather than taking a digital camera or using my phone, I use my Nikon F100 film camera. This restricts me to 36 images, meaning I really take time when documenting - and enjoying - moments as they happen. I became a wedding photographer because I love photography. I used to shoot more commercial work, but over time, I came to realise my real passion was wedding photography. Every wedding assignment is shot in my own style - every frame is my own. In commercial photography, though I loved the challenge of working to brief, I always felt restricted. Wedding photography allows me to express myself through image-making in the way I want to. I never seek to repeat past work and I don't work to a brief. My clients just expect me to take natural, unposed images of their day in the style I am known for.

London wedding photographer David Cliff - England elopements

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]

Nottinghamshire wedding and elopement photography by Nathan Walker of East Midlands, England, United Kingdom

It all started just before my daughter was born (2015). I wanted to document family life in a way that was not disposable like the masses of selfies or general camera phone awfulness that spam-up social media feeds. I wanted to create photos that had more creative thought behind them, photos that I would actually pay money to print and put up around the house or send as gifts to my family. A couple of years later my sister-in-law invited me to shoot her wedding on a beach in Cornwall! Talk about a tough first gig- there’s no climb-down if I messed it up big time. But I was so thrilled to be asked because I’d been dreaming about shooting a wedding because in my mind it paired a truly joyous occasion with the need to have beautiful story-telling photography. I loved it! More importantly, they love the photos, and not long after I started my wedding photography business (2017). I live in Nottingham with my wife and 2 children. I shoot weddings throughout the East Midlands for fun-loving couples. I have a very relaxed style and while I work in a documentary manner for 95% of the day, I specialise in creating natural-looking couples portraits. [Nottinghamshire Wedding Photographer]

England and Hampshire wedding photography and elopements by Anna Mikulich, of UK

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 Sharron. I'm a former BBC News Journalist with an MA in Photojournalism. I've been shooting weddings now professionally for 5 years and I absolutely love it. I still get excited by each and every wedding I photograph - the people, the details, the love. There is nothing better, and I feel blessed that this is my full time job. When I decided to make the move from news into photography - photojournalism seemed to be the natural step. But it wasn't really for me. It wasn't until I shot a friends' wedding "photojournalist-style" that I fell in love. The raw emotions and nerves of getting ready, the beauty and intimacy of the ceremony and the pure exhilaration of the party afterwards! I knew from that moment on that I wanted to shoot weddings. I put my heart and soul into photographing weddings and my aim is to provide my clients with a set of artistic, timeless and beautiful photographs that tell the story of their day.

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.

West Sussex wedding reportage photography by Annamarie Stepney, of England

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]

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.

London small wedding photography by Wayne La of England United Kingdom

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.

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.

Hi, I’m Aaron, a creative documentary wedding photographer from Northamptonshire. Often brave but always beautifully legitimate; I’m present and mindful of the fantastic moments of real joy and emotion that happen throughout a wedding. I don’t have any expectations of how your day will unfold, and I am continually working hard to capture the honest and fun that tells each wedding in all its unique glory. Being a photographer was a lifelong dream that I started chasing after buying my first SLR camera back in 2008, having trained as a graphic designer. I’ve never looked back! I know how big a decision it is to hire the right photographer, so here’s a little more about me so you can get to know me better. At the heart of my life is my lovely wife, Lindsay and our beautiful children; Imogen and Noah. I’m forever grateful to have such a warm, loving family, and they are my biggest inspiration. I play the guitar, and I’ve been told that I’m not too bad! I used to own a classic Mini Cooper in Tahiti blue. She was my favourite possession but had to go when I found out we were having our daughter. Today, I drive a sporty little Abarth 500. I’m obsessed with Stanley Kubrick movies, especially 2001: A Space Odyssey. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen it! One day I’m going to live by the coast. Our favourite towns are Hunstanton (I proposed to Lindsay just down the road at Wells-next-the-Sea) and Southwold. I used to skateboard, and I occasionally can still be seen riding about. I’m a latecomer to Indian food, but I can’t eat enough of it now. We’re all beautifully different. Every living soul is unique, relevant, exciting and can do great things. But I think the thing that differentiates my photography from that of my peers is my outlook on how I observe, document and tell the story of a wedding day. When my couples trust and invest with me, in return, I spend time in them. I’m obsessively committed to documenting the unique story of a wedding in its full comprehensive glory. My style isn’t choreographed or repetitive, and I never have a script for how I expect the cards to fall, I just put up a camera, observe and capture tiny moments in time. My style was born and grown from personal experiences, so imitation is impossible, it’s me that makes me different. [Northamptonshire Wedding Photographer]

For a long time now I’ve loved having a camera in my hand and documenting peoples stories. I get excited about capturing the spontaneous and significant moments that make up our lives, moments that can’t be rewound or paused. But I’m also fascinated by the relationships and interactions we have with each other, which is why I’ve always preferred taking natural, honest images that are a reflection of our real selves. A big part of my life are the trips I take abroad with my camera, as I love exploring new countries, embracing new cultures and capturing the lives of the people I meet along the way. It’s my chance to unwind and recharge the creative juices, so that I’m fully prepared for the year ahead. It’s a privilege to have had my travel work featured on prestigious websites and magazines over the last few years, and it was an honour to have been shortlisted for International Street Photographer of the Year by the ISPA.

Former editorial photographer having worked for all the major Fleet St titles, supplying news and feature assignments for over 15 years. A short spell living in Eastern Europe setting up my own picture agency before moving back to the UK in 2009. For the last 10 years, I have concentrated on shooting weddings, firstly in stills photography and in recent years, moving forward embracing videography and audio. I now freely work between stills and videography, finding comfort in documenting within both genres. I hold CAA permissions to fly UAV (drones), so I have a varied skill set to utilise and employ at the appropriate times. My ideal clients are those that have travelled, that have possibly had more testing times than others, but who essentially know and value real connection. People that wear their hearts on their sleeves, who aren't afraid to show their vulnerabilities. Working in this emotionally rich environment directs my work, consistently growing in quality and strength. Long may it continue! [Dorset Wedding Photographer]

England and Hertfordshire wedding photography by Erica Hawkins of United Kingdom

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]

Razvan Danaila UK Wedding Photographer for small events and elopements

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]

Let's take the ‘cheeeeeese’ out of wedding photography, No posing, no cliches, but a relaxed, unscripted record of your day – just call me The Wedding Ninja!! I love a wedding or elopement with personality, one that has ‘You’ stamped all over it Want a floral wedding dress with Doc Martens? Brilliant Getting married in an old cinema? Amazing Duck herding at the drinks reception? That will do nicely! My Dad is a photographer and I was given my first camera when I was 6 years old, but then sort of lost interest for a while.

Hi I’m Ash Davenport from Miki Photography, an international award winning Wedding Photographer in London but covering the whole of the UK. I specialise in a blend of relaxed and creative portraits and a documentary approach to capturing weddings. So if I were to try and describe my style in three words it would be, LOVE, FUN & STYLE. LOVE – For me that’s what a wedding is primarily about, and what I'm trying to capture the essence of: two people who love each other enough to say that they want to spend the rest of the lives together, surrounded by all the people most important to them. FUN – Whether it be joy, happiness, or laughter I want your images to resonate with real emotions. So relax be yourselves, and just enjoy it – and then allow the pictures to reflect that. Don’t worry I be mostly blending into the day capturing it all as it all unfolds. No fake smiles, no saying cheese and no looking at the camera. Just awesome imagery of people being themselves with real relaxed expressions. STYLE – I always strive to make you both 'look good’ especially in the parts of the day where I get to spend a few moments with you and hopefully produce some pictures you’ll be proud of and happy to show your friends and make them go 'WOW’. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, I’d love to hear from you. [London Wedding Photographer]

Jersey, Channel Islands Wedding Photography by Catherine Hill

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.

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]

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. If you like the sound of me and love my work then do get in touch – I would love to hear all about your plans and I’m sure if you go on to book me we’ll have a great time in the process.

Harpenden and Hertfordshire wedding reportage photography by Neil Pleasants of England United Kingdom

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]

England and Gloucestershire wedding reportage and elopement photography by Jonny Barratt of the United Kingdom

Heeeere’s Jonny! Ok, I’ll spare you all those gags (hilarious the first fifty times, afterward not so much) and get right to it. If you’re planning the biggest party of your life right now and want a documentary wedding photographer to capture all the cray in a way that’s honest and fuss-free then welcome to my humble little profile. I'm guessing you want to know who this random and curiously handsome (ahem) man pitching to photograph your wedding is. Of course, you do! I would as well. After all, I want to spend one of the biggest days of your life with you so it’s important to know that we’ll get along. It makes my job a lot more fun and the photography just that bit more awesome. So, in a nutshell, I’m a documentary wedding photographer based in Gloucestershire, the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds. I travel all over the UK and beyond to capture wedding celebrations in my alternative, photojournalistic style. That’s me in the picture looking all arty. Out of shot is my wife Rosa pulling faces with our baby daughter whilst our crazy basset hound chases its own tail. This is totally a cliche but I genuinely love what I do. I'm so lucky this has been my full-time job for over three years now but I’ve been taking photos for far longer. I studied Image Production at college (which seems like a LOOONG time ago now) and that’s where it all started. I like to travel to far-flung corners of the earth and plan adventures. I’ve ridden a bike the length of Vietnam, climbed mountains in the Himalayas, sought out the Northern Lights and travelled Europe extensively in a campervan. I once ran 54 miles in one day, Forest Gump style. My adventure-seeking has slowed down a smidgen since my daughter came along but I still love to plan little getaways with the family. When it comes to shooting weddings it's all about natural story-telling images. This for me is all about capturing the emotions and energy of the day without staging anything, posing anyone, setting up moments or shouting directions. Don’t fret- I still shoot all the beautiful details, parents still get that must-have family photo for their mantlepiece, and if you create some time alone with your partner I can capture the two of you together, loved-up and freshly married! While I do appreciate the wealth of outstanding talent in the wedding photography world, I try not to obsess over my contemporaries too much. I feel it can become counter-productive in searching for my own voice. Instead, I tend to feel inspired by other genres: travel and street photography, for example. And I draw a lot of inspo from the place where I live; Gloucestershire countryside is gorgeous darling, even if the phone signal can be a bit rubbish. With the fear of waffling on for too long here’s my quick-fire top reasons why I could be the right photographer for you: 1. I’m the real thing. What I mean here is, recently, you may have noticed a trend for my style of photography. Words like “photojournalism” and “reportage” are getting chucked around like confetti. But I’m a pose-free, cheese-free zone and promise to offer you docu-style photography in its purest form. 2. I’m no-nonsense. I know that this is your day, not mine. You won’t catch me shouting at guests to “Smile!” or arranging people. You’ll barely know I’m there. 3. I’m a great guy. All my mates say so. Well, some of them. But seriously, I’ll blend in and mix with your guests in a friendly, engaging way. I won’t be hiding in bushes paparazzi style. Getting up close and in the middle of all the action is how I get my best images. 4. I don’t want to miss a thing. As a wedding photographer, I want to be there for the wedding in its entirety. I offer unlimited coverage, that way I get to stay for the party! During the day my main focus is people (I love people), but I’ll make sure I get all those intricate little details too. 5. I’m not allergic to group photos. I won't shy away from these, I’m always happy to fit a few in. I do them in my own way and always inject a bit of fun. I’d recommend doing only a handful (you gotta get back to that party, after all) but I know how important it is to get a few family ones. After all, we need to keep Mum happy. So, if you appreciate photography and are passionate about your wedding images, let's collaborate to create something truly great. Get in touch AS SOON AS POSSIBLE because, like all good snappers, I get booked up pretty sharpish especially for those summer months. I can only shoot around 35 weddings a year (I’m told I do need to actually see my wife and child occasionally) plus each wedding needs my full attention so I’m careful not to overbook myself. I can’t work with everyone who enquires (I wish I could) but if you think your wedding and my creative documentary approach would be an unbeatable combo then contact me and we’ll start talking.

Sofia wedding and elopement photography by Boris Hristov, of Bulgaria

Hello! My name is Boris. I am 38 years old. I was born in Sofia. Imaginative art and music are two of the basic things I have been doing since my early teaching years, in one aspect have shaped my further life path, and I dare say that they have played a major role in shaping me as a person. At a later stage in my life, as a boomerang, when I graduated my musical education, photography appeared in my life. It seemed to fill a long lost piece of the puzzle of my childhood when my love of the fine art turned into my profession. At various times of the year, I'm busy with various photographic projects. Portrait, wedding, art, advertising, reporting, etc. No matter in which of the chosen styles are my engagements, be it in relation to a personal project or a work for a client, that has always excited me and I hope to be able to convey with my pictures. I capture relationships between people, acquaintances, and strangers. This moment, this day and the world in which we live, tomorrow just will not be the same, and the reminder to us and our children, where we have been, how we lived and who we loved are precisely the memories sealed after the trivial click of the camera. I take pictures as something very personal and intimate, as with my pictures I give people the opportunity to see the world in my personal perspective, where I am passing on their personal emotions, feelings, and worldview. My photographs have participated in several national exhibitions, published in magazines, as well as in the largest online galleries for art photography. I sincerely hope that looking at the pictures in my portfolio, you will be able to experience the emotion and feel the excitement as a participant in them. If so, I'd be glad to get in touch with me, get to know each other and work together. Sincerely, Boris Hristov [Sofia Wedding Photographer]

After my personal experience as a bride, telling in pictures about this wonderful moment in the life of a couple who believes in love, mutual trust, and complicity has become my personal "mission". So I ventured into this difficult and complex world, but I immediately understood that wedding photography is an artistically vast, complete and always stimulating field. I admit that I love marriages so much because they bring out the best in people, they are rich with various emotions and the surprise is always around the corner. For this reason, above all, I love the authenticity of moments because magic happens just when you are simply yourself, together with the most important people in your life: real moments that come to life in a completely natural way. People who love me think that I'm cheerful, ironic, genuine and sincere. It's vital for me to spend my free time with the people I love, chat with friends about everything and anything until the most unlikely hours; I love the warm colours of nature in autumn and the summer light; my favourite colour is blue in all its shades. I am passionate about films and TV series that, in addition to entertaining and telling beautiful stories, can teach a lot about photography. Even if I don't have a favourite genre, I listen to a lot of music, a passion that is part of me since I can remember. [Trieste Wedding Photographer]

Florence wedding and elopement photography by Laura Barbera of Tuscany, Italy

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!

My photography business began in 2012 with auction houses. My subjects are very often objects of art, my passion quickly brought me to the living. I then started my activity as a photographer in more varied fields. Today my main activity as a photographer is around wedding photography, corporate photography and private photoshoots (maternity photos, CV portraits, baptism photos, family portraits, couple photos ...). With mobile studio equipment, you can go to the place of your choice, a real studio photo session. As a wedding photographer, my deepest wish, but also my duty as a photographer, is to offer you images far from the traditional clichés of the wedding photo. My approach is above all the search for emotion and moments present while looking for a particular aesthetic to offer you at the end of this day, the best possible memory. I thank you for your interest in my work and remain at your disposal for any inquiries. [Versailles Wedding Photographer]

Padua wedding and elopement photography by Valeria Berti of Veneto Italy

Valeria Berti has inherited from her father the passion for photography. It all started when she was ten years old and got in her hands an analogical Nikon. This passion has grown over time, becoming her job, keeping alive and developing nevertheless love for photography which was driving her from her youngest age. She is also a graphic designer and loves the extreme artisanal care of her photos’ post-production. Her approach to wedding photography is a reportage-based one, as she loves seizing spontaneous situations with a smart and fresh style. “I love to capture the story of your wedding with my heart first of all and then with my camera, to be able to relive it even after many years”, says Valeria. Her photography tells your story in a sincere and elegant way; a story in pictures, which stops the most beautiful memories and emotions of your marriage and your life with photography. Her way of photographing is absolutely natural, spontaneous, emotional and creative. “Photographs are our memory over time when our memories begin to get lost in the passing of time.” She firmly believes in this sentence. Although Padua is her home, she often works in Venice, also covering weddings throughout Italy and internationally. [Padua Wedding Photographer]

Hong Kong Wedding Photographer Ronnie Szeto

Hi, I'm Ronnie, born and grown up in Hong Kong, a tiny spot on our planet where 'East meets West'~ I studied History back in my University time, but besides my major study, I joined a documentary filmmaking course taught by a local veteran producer. That was when I started to discover my interest in videography and photography. Once graduated in 2008, I saved most of my salary from my first job, and bought my first ever camera. I became more addicted to photography, and especially photojournalism, because it has the magic to freeze a moment and tell a great story. Thanks to another experienced teacher, I was able to learn from him more advanced photographic technique and philosophy, and gradually I have engaged myself with wedding photography. Since then, I was lucky enough to cover weddings not only in Hong Kong, but also in Germany, Australia and China, with couples from various countries including France, Netherlands, Canada, South Korea and more. It's not an easy ride for sure, but I am glad that I have came through all these years and my love of wedding photojournalism simply grows with time! Besides photography, I'm a travelholic, although there are so many wonderful places yet for me to discover. Just like wedding photojournalism, I will never get bored of it!

Flanders-based Joshua Dhondt is a Wedding Photographer for Antwerp, Belgium

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]

Sofia Wedding and Elopement Day Photography by Ivelina Cholakova, of Bulgaria

My name is Ivelina and I can say photography is my passion! For nine years now I am a freelance photographer. Each and every one of these 9 years I continued upgrading - I would participate in a masterclass of some of my favourite photographers, simply for inspiration and to improve. In 2017 I realized an independent exhibition with 36 female portraits. But I also have separate participation in other exhibitions. Memories engage our emotions! Things we lived through, our background, is what remains in our hearts. But our memory is fragile and it is photography that makes the blurred memories bright. It makes it possible for us to remember those moments that make our life unique. Personally, for me, photography is both love and art, combined in one. The ability to see the good in every person and situation and show it in the best way possible. I experience moments in every wedding as a unique and such a special day, because I realize this is going to be the only time that all these people come together at this place, at the same time, looking for the relations between them, all those strong and deep emotions, smiling faces, the love and tears of happiness. And I love being there to capture it all! [Sofia Wedding Photographer]

I am Mihai, professional wedding photographer since 2011. I love shooting authentic images, candid shots that capture real moments as they occur naturally throughout the day. These images are my main focus when shooting weddings. And I strongly believe they are the most important and the most relevant images from a wedding. I will never stage or alter anything during the wedding day. I also try and be as unintrusive as possible. Although I'm not “a fly on the wall” - I tend to stay in the middle of the action, working close to people with my wide angle lens. [Bucharest Wedding Photographer]

I'm a photographer, a daddy, and a husband... I used to shoot since I was a child with any kind of camera, analogic machines, compact, 35mm, digital SLR cameras, etc... What interests me is to capture and create. Thanks to my grandfather who gave me the first film camera and given me the opportunity to develop hundreds of photos ... I prefer portraits and storytelling by reportage. My love is "catch the moment" to make beautiful images. I love Photography in all, it is my passion, like for pizza. I love to be a friend during the wedding day, not a "director". A friend that will shoot about your day just with emotions and real moments that will become...memories. No constructions, no fake, just a lovely couple with a beautiful story on a special day. [Syracuse Wedding Photographer]

Braga Wedding and Elopement Photography by Paulo Castro, of Portugal

Paulo Castro began his photographic journey in 2003. It all began as a hobby. In "the National Park of Peneda-Gerês," where his first pictures were taken, he learned to watch the light and understand the photographic technique. He devoted himself to photography of nature and portrait, having stood out in “specialist” magazines and on online sites. Later, between 2005 and 2010, other work was done in other several areas, especially in extreme sports and reporting in nightclubs. In 2010, he conducts his own project, to a momentous register and of memory and also begins to dream of the possibility of becoming a full-time photographer. With the birth of my daughter, Inês Castro in 2013, my greatest dream had come true. Since then my daughter has been the source of my inspiration in my professional career. Every moment is captured naturally and through it, I tell a story of reality. The photograph is what remains to later be remembered. I photograph for passion!!! [Braga Wedding Photographer]

While some of us were fortunate enough to be born as extroverts, not everyone feels the same way.

This day is all about you, yes, but does that mean all the attention has to be on you as well? FROM VOWS TO CHITCHAT, WHICH REMAINS SACRED?

Traditionally speaking, often times it is the couple’s families who help pay for their wedding. However, unfortunately that’s just not possible for everyone, especially these days when the cost of weddings can quickly and easily get out of control. Some couples find themselves in the position of paying for all of their own wedding expenses, which can be quite the financial burden to take on, and about 40% of Millennials end up in this boat. So, how can you stick to your allotted...Read more

Oftentimes when people are considering a venue for their weddings, they search for a location away from home, whether that be ten minutes or ten hours, all just to find what they already have: a place that holds meaning for them, that feels comfortable, or that they find special and memorable. But what could hold more memory, meaning, and importance than your own home? For those looking for that perfect venue, it may not be any further than beyond your threshold.Read more
We all know that the economy can go through some hard times, and be somewhat reminiscent of past recessions.

So, in an industry that keeps on going through thick and thin, what are some things to expect for the future, and what is really necessary to still make that wedding day memorable and...Read more

Everyone always says that your wedding day is all about you. But let’s face it; that’s not always actually the case. Many couples stress over guest lists, planning, expenses, and all the frills and traditions of your standard large wedding that they may or may not even be interested in. Fortunately, though, the concept of small weddings is becoming increasingly popular for couples who either want to be able to completely customize their day where and when they want with the option...Read more

Thank you so much for agreeing to photograph our wedding. We love the photos and really appreciated your patience and good humour during the day.

Hi Graham We just wanted to send you a few kind words regarding our wedding day. There are not enough words to describe your brilliance over the wedding day itself and the planning build up. You went out of your way to make sure our special day was perfect. You didn't just take your photographs but became part of our family. You blended in with effortless ease over the few days and it was our pleasure to know you. Your attention to detail is second to none. You took the shots that make people say "WOW.......Did I really do that!!"... and the memories flood back. All of our family and friends have commented on how they enjoyed your countless humorous comments in helping relax them for the photos. To finish I want to reccomend you to anyone thinking of getting married. You will take them on an emotional journey where they will laugh, cry and most of all smile their way to the altar. Kind Regards and forever grateful Tracey and Barry

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.

 The truth is that the thought of getting photographed always made us feel uncomfortable and we believed that we wouldn’t meet the expectations and that you would be “tortured”! 
 But with your guidance, patience and discreetness the result surpassed our expectations!

 The way you use the natural surroundings is unique!
 We were really impressed on how focused you were on your job We found a professional and a friend in the same person!
