You see your wedding day as a gathering of people coming together to witness people getting together and then celebrating their heads off. You want less faff and more fun; less formality and more spontaneity. You believe that great wedding photography is just…well, it’s just great photography because you’ve noticed that even amongst the echelons of ‘wedding documentary’, some are more ‘weddingy’ than others.
I’m a documentary photographer at your wedding. I’m drawn to moments and sometimes they’re spontaneous snapshots that can pull you back to being in-the-moment and sometimes they’re thoughtful compositions full of layers and stories that reward you the longer you look at them.
I’m serious about delivering you pictures that you’ll cherish and relaxed in my approach whilst doing so.
I work unobtrusively but that doesn’t mean I’m a fly on the wall, or a ninja lurking in the shadows. That would be creepy. Think of me as a wedding guest, who you don’t know very well, but will be spending all day with, and is taking pictures of you. Hmmm.
Alternative, warm, earthy, free from cliche. I believe great wedding photography is just great photography.
I often get asked what my favourite subject is to photograph and I always respond with 'People'. Whether capturing everyday life at home with my wife and three young kids; or casual candids of strangers on the streets; and of course, weddings. People photography is a passion and what better way to fuel it than to photograph people looking their best, and feeling their best on one of life's major events.

The photos have arrived! And of course, we absolutely love them!!! You've really captured the spirit of the day and all the moments that made it special. We can't stop looking at them - there's just so much to see in every photo, and the longer we look at them, the more there is to see! The composition of some of them is just genius. We had such a fun day, and I'm just delighted that we've got these photos to remember it by - we're so lucky we found you. The presentation box and USB key are also gorgeous, such a lovely touch.
I can't even imagine how much work went into the photos, we've spent hours and hours just looking at them! So a MASSIVE thank you and AMAZING work.
Our Wedding photos - very difficult to choose our favourite! You truly captured every moment of the day and produced some beautiful images!
Working with a camera-shy family and bride, you really had your work cut out! but we can honestly say, you made us feel so comfortable and relaxed on the day, that we often never even realised that you were taking shots. Guests also commented on your discretion and hard work.
You have been extremely helpful from our first meeting to sending our finished photos. We feel very lucky to have found you to capture our special day and leave us with lasting memories. Thank you.
Wayne is a very professional and competent photographer and my husband and I really enjoyed working with him on our big day. We were really pleased with the range and style of pictures he took from us, from individual portraits to group and couple shots, and by the fact he was able to make good use of the venue as a backdrop. He was also excellent at managing the guests being photographed and making everything run to time. We would definitely recommend.
I feel so fortunate to have come across Wayne and his work, he has made such beautiful lasting memories for my husband and I, and for that we can not recommend him highly enough! He was an absolute pleasure to work with, everyone commented on how polite and unintrusive he was throughout the day. He totally understood our vision for natural-looking photographs and captured the joy and excitement of the day brilliantly - he was the absolute perfect choice!
We hired Wayne La after relentlessly looking for a
photographer for 6 months! He met with us a few times
going over our wedding photo details. On our wedding day,
he showed up super early and stayed with us all day photographing every detail of our day. Our photos our absolutely breathtaking. They are the best part from our wedding. He captured every special moment, caught every perfect glimpse. We made the perfect choice for a photographer, and would highly recommend!!
