The man behind the camera

Your photographer will play a huge role in your wedding and I believe a wedding photographer’s job is not just to take beautiful, memorable and engaging photos but to ensure that you and your guests also have the best experience possible. I try to make sure the photos are not only enjoyable to look back on but also to create. I often hear that guests assumed I was a friend of the couple and I love that.

My obsession with lines, geometry and well-composed images stems from a mathematical background and it’s actually in photography that I’ve found these skills to be most effectively applied. Whilst I largely take a laid back, reportage approach, what I love to do most is get in amongst it and capture those moments where people let their guard down, from a friends and family-eye view.

Originally from the West Country, I love shooting a wide variety of different weddings, both in the city but also getting back to my roots in the beautiful landscape of the British countryside. My approach is creative and modern, focusing on the fun and emotion of what for me first and foremost is a massive celebration.

“Oliver always captures the fun of the weddings he photographs, which is exactly what we wanted. Generally speaking I don’t like photos of myself or like being photographed but Oliver made me feel so relaxed. He was also happy that we didn’t want to do many staged photos as this gave him free reign to capture us naturally. It was great having him there late into the evening, and the following day as well, because this enabled him to get in amongst it all, the product of which is brilliant!” – Emma

If money were no object I would be a photographer and consequently I feel incredibly lucky to call this “work”. If you turn your work into what you love then it will shine through in the quality of what you create.
