Hi, I'm Janis

London based wedding photographer covering weddings in London, all UK and destinations

I strive to create unique, timeless, and cinematic wedding photography in London, all UK, and beyond. At the heart of my work, I believe that love is a story worth telling. I want to capture your day in an artistic way and tell it through photographs for years to come.

Here’s what some clients say about me:

Wotton House wedding , Dorking, Surrey, UK

Hi Janis!

It was such a fantastic day for us, and we can’t thank you enough for being a part of it. Many of our guests have been explaining to us how professional you were on the day. Thanks for sending the preview shots. We have been blown away, as have everyone who has seen them so far! Please pass our thanks to your wife. We can’t wait to see the rest.

Amanda and Fieldmann

Christmas wedding in Groucho Club, Soho, London

A winter wedding indoors in London would seem like it would make for pretty tough conditions for a photographer, and it did. But Janis made it work beautifully both inside the Groucho Club and with a wonderful walk around Soho. Stunning photos and a real artistic talent made for some brilliant photos, and he even made it from France through the UK snow airport chaos. What more could we ask for? All of our family and friends – even those recently married with their own photos for comparison – have said that they’re the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen, and we couldn’t agree more. Janis is not just a wedding photographer – he’s THE wedding photographer.

Hannah and Adam

Destination wedding in Queenstown, New Zealand


Dan just showed me the Sneak peek from your blog.


You are AMAZING! So incredibly talented. I knew you were good. But did not know just how brilliant your eye is.

Thanks a million, Janis.


Destination wedding in Mexico – Hacienda Petac, Santa Cruz, Merida

Hi Janis,

I hope you made it back to the UK safe and sound. This is just a quick note to say thank you for coming out to Mexico and being part of our celebrations. I hope you got to meet some nice people, eat some good food, have a few drinks, and see your snakes/reptiles!

We are having fun going through your photos and seeing things that we didn’t realize happened, and just remembering other special parts of the weekend. We truly had a good time, and hope you did too.

It was really great to meet you and we look forward to seeing how the photos turn out and then catching up again in September at Chris and Mollie’s wedding for some more fun and dancing!

Thanks again,


Ps. We love your message in the book with the Polaroid of you and the mustache! Thank you!

St. Mary Axe wedding – top of the Gherkin, Brick Lane Music Hall, London

Hi Janis

WOW, we love them!!! They have come out fantastically!!! You and Inese have done an amazing job!!! We knew you guys were great but these shots have blown us away. We have shown a few people and then everyone says that they wish their photographer had been that good J. I hope some of them make your ‘Greatest Shots’.

We’re really glad you enjoyed the day. We thought it was a great party but it’s hard to tell when it’s your own!

Finally, Dave wants to know what camera and lenses you used on the day – think he fancies some new kit J

Jade & Dave

Hindu wedding in Bhaktivedanta Manor, London

Dear Janis and Inese,

Thank you for sending these so quickly. The photographs have already been circulated to our immediate families and they will soon be making their way to India.

I never dreamed I would be so happy with my wedding photographs. Both Ravi and I are absolutely thrilled to bits with them. We can’t wait to see the rest.

Despite being a photographer myself, I will still be recommending you to others!

Thank you for everything so far. You have made our day truly memorable.

Kajal & Ravi


And there are many more!

I’ll keep telling my stories through photographs – please allow me to tell yours!

How would you describe your style?

I produce cinematic storytelling-type photos of your wedding day. It's a rare combination of documentary, fine art, and contemporary reportage style that makes my photos stand out.

What do you love about weddings?

I love working with happy people. Weddings are happy occasions so people there are happy. My biggest reward is seeing people happy and reliving their wedding day once going through their wedding photos.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

Talk to your photographer before the wedding. Ask for his input on how to plan the day to allow some photography time when the light is at its best.

Your Travel policy?

I travel worldwide and have shot weddings in 36 countries and counting. For travels in Europe, the travel fee is flat £500, that covers my tickets and 2 nights in a hotel. For more exotic destinations please check with me.
