Surrey Wedding Photographer

Focused on the moment so that you can focus on being in the moment...

Hi, I'm David and I love working with fun family oriented couples to capture the story of your wedding in heartfelt and authentic images.

Surrey Wedding Photography Done Differently

As one of the most established Surrey wedding photographers, my images are authentic and full of emotion. If you’re engaged to be married and you’re looking for a professional photographer to document your nuptials then congratulations, you’ve come to the right place! I love capturing such special occasions throughout the picturesque county of Surrey. I try to work discreetly, and be the best wedding photographer Surrey has to offer. My aim is to capture natural candid photos that go beyond the traditional wedding portraits and ceremony pictures, and tell a more comprehensive story, that you’ll want to make into a beautiful wedding album.

My photojournalistic approach starts long before the wedding day itself, getting to know the two of you, the circumstances of your wedding, and what matters most, so that I can capture that in the photos. I take on a limited number of weddings each year, so that I can give each one my full attention, and when it comes time for some group photos and portraits that you’d expect from an award winning Surrey wedding photographer, these are done with a smile, and without missing too many canapés!

I offer uniquely flexible coverage, and you won’t find me Instagramming from your wedding instead of capturing those special moments. All your photos are processed by myself, rather than being outsourced to an AI, and your photos are delivered in both colour and black & white. I also offer each of my couples a pre-wedding venue visit, to get to know one another better and finalise plans for the big day.

Why I Love Photographing Weddings In Surrey & The South East

I’m a Surrey wedding photographer and I see it as my job to capture precious, and at times funny moments, while not interrupting the natural flow of your day. I love to capture moments of joy and nervous anticipation between the newlyweds and their guests, through the lens of my camera; a look or a touch that can reveal so much in a single exposure. With professional digital equipment and a fast shutter speed, I even like to take a snapshot of the absurd and unplanned moments that will become cherished memories in your family’s photo album of life, and although I promote myself as a Surrey wedding photographer, I love to travel all over the country.

Love is love, and Surrey is where I enjoy working with family oriented newly-weds who want to celebrate the day they get married their way, with personal touches, be that as part of a religious ceremony, a classic white wedding, or something completely different. Although I’m based in Surrey in the South East region of England, I am of course happy to travel, and I’m proud to consider myself an inclusive Surrey wedding photographer.

Why Surrey Is The Best County To Be A Wedding Photographer

Surrey, and the picturesque market town of Guildford, home to the University of Surrey, and Royal Surrey Hospital, is also where I choose to call home. It’s a great base from which to shoot at amazing wedding venues as a Surrey wedding photographer. The town built up around the River Wey and is blessed with quintessentially English landscapes just a stones throw from other Surrey towns such as Woking and Esher. The scenery is so inspiring for a Surrey wedding photos. Before becoming the Surrey wedding photographer I am now, I studied at The Surrey Institute of Art & Design in Farnham, a town which is also home to a wonderful variety of wedding venues.

Although Surrey is thought of as a commuter suburb, it’s also the best place to be a Surrey wedding photographer. The county is well known as an area of outstanding natural beauty with tourist destinations such as Guildford Castle established by the Normans, Brooklands Museum, RHS Wisley Garden in Surrey, Waverley Abbey and Hampton Court Palace, and notable historic figures who’ve lived in Surrey include George Abbot and Lewis Carroll.

 

Is Wedding Photojournalism Right For You?

Whether you’re looking to hire a Surrey wedding photographer, or your wedding is taking place elsewhere, I’d like to introduce you to the idea of “wedding photojournalism”, but what is it, and more importantly, is it right for you? In trying to define my style of wedding photography, two things seem essential to me. Firstly, wedding photojournalism is not simply candid photography (more about that in a moment) and secondly it requires the photographer to take a genuine interest in the people and places they are photographing.

It’s true that what photojournalism and candid pictures have in common is that typically the subject appears unaware of the camera, and is in the moment, however a strong photojournalist will also go beyond the obvious, to find those unscripted situations, perhaps using humour or juxtaposition to tell a more nuanced story. It’s about looking beyond the cliches and understanding that although there are lots of traditions associated with the wedding day that should be captured, you may not want, or indeed be able to conform to these conventions.

Wedding photojournalism is about celebrating these differences and taking the time to get to know you and your wedding plans, so that we can create a series of pictures that is a more faithful and honest representation of your day. It can also be artistic, such as my recent project featured on PetaPixel.com in which I documented the making of a wedding dress. If you’re still on the search for a Surrey wedding photographer then I’d love to get the conversation started!
