I’m Oliver, I have been taking photographs since a very young age and learnt my craft the old school way, rolls of film, dark rooms and a shared cassette player! I decided to start photographing weddings last year and love capturing such special moments for couples, friends and family to look back at for years to come and remember how they felt. When I am not working with a digital camera I love to explore the streets of London with my old Nikon and shoot a roll of 35mm.
I also have a passion for music and love escaping to a good concert, when I’m at home editing it is a rarity that I don’t have music on in the background. I’m an avid mountain biker and where time permits love to be in the great outdoors.
My documentary style photography produces truthful and emotive images, I pride myself on my ability to capture the raw moments that even you might have missed. Displaying your guests' emotions and personalities in my photographs, you will be provided with well-rounded images of your entire wedding day, from capturing the beautiful venue and the love between you and your partner to your guests and the reception celebrations.
I love capturing the small intimate moments that happen almost unaware to everyone there. Being part of such a special day between two people who truly care and love one another unconditionally. No wedding is ever the same, they are all as individual and unique as the couple at the front and to photograph these life events is an honour and pleasure.
When deciding on a photographer to cover your day I would always consider their personality along with their rate. It’s a very intimate day and I have often I found myself firstly being a photographer and also a spare set of hands, general dogsbody and anything else my couple might need me for. Someone who is calm and generally aware of what you want from the day. I have a strong motto that I always stick to buy cheap buy twice, would you want to risk this on your wedding photos...
I am happy to travel up to 150 miles included in my standard rate
