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

I've been a full-time photographer for over 5 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]

England and Gloucestershire wedding reportage 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.

Andrew Billington award winning documentary wedding photographer

The first chapter in my working life was as an actor and theatre stage manager. I’ve spent my life telling stories and I continue to do so. I live with my wife Rachel and my two dogs on the edge of the Peak District in the UK - most of my spare time is spent walking, reading and catching up with box sets. For the last ten years, I’ve been photographing weddings, refining and perfecting my relaxed, story-telling approach. I photograph on average 40 weddings a year and try to find something different for every wedding couple I work with. 3 years ago I was asked to run a workshop on my approach to documentary wedding photography and that has expanded into running full day workshops across the UK (and even a solo, workshop in Crete in 2018). As well as photographing weddings I photograph live theatre for a few national theatres and it's a way of getting my photography to a wider audience through Nation Newspapers and exhibitions.

Jersey, UK wedding reportage photographer Andy Le Gresley

When I started out as a professional photographer in 2007, I quickly realised that photography would keep me passionate and happy in my working life, as it was something that could inspire me. Photography isn't just a job for me, it has become more a way of life. I've always thought it to be a great privilege to be asked to photograph someone's wedding day, as it gives me the opportunity to capture such a special day for a couple and all of the people closest to them. I take a photojournalistic approach to my wedding photography, as it allows me to document my client’s day in a natural and discreet way, telling their story as it unfolds. By adopting such a style, I capture genuine moments and real emotion, which become images that my clients will treasure for life. I have been lucky enough to photograph some truly memorable weddings at some fantastic locations in Jersey, the UK and Europe. My style of landscape photography is influenced by my passion for the natural world - I've always been drawn to beautiful landscapes but in particular the coast. Being by the ocean and free to explore is a great form of escapism for me and when this results in capturing an unusual and powerful image that no one will have seen before, it's so much more rewarding. I love being able to share these images with people and am thrilled that my landscape work is now widely sold commercially and as prints in private residences. I’ve built up a broad range of experience in my commercial photography work and my areas of specialism include architectural and interior photography, lifestyle and advertising campaigns, commissioned landscape photography and stock image licensing, food and hospitality, corporate communications and business portraiture. I love to work with my clients on location to produce images that are contemporary, creative and striking and that deliver the right message to help promote their business or product.

Shropshire wedding photographer Andy Li, for UK

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]

Scotland and Edinburgh wedding photography by Zoe Brunner of the United Kingdom WPJA

Hi, I'm Zoë I've been taking photos for almost a decade. It took me until the end of my bachelor's degree to realise that photography was what I wanted to do full time. Although I studied philosophy and linguistics (University of Edinburgh), I nearly always found myself thinking about photography, not Immanuel Kant! Philosophy did teach me something though. It taught me about aesthetics, about beauty, and about ways of seeing the world. These sensibilities are what I bring to my photography. Outside of photographing weddings, I'm also a passionate rock climber, sourdough baker, and craftswoman. I was born and raised in Zürich, Switzerland, but you wouldn't know it from my accent.
