Kent Wedding Photographer
Hi, I’m Olly Knight, a Kent wedding photographer who photographs weddings in my home county of Kent, the UK and overseas as a destination wedding photographer. I photograph weddings in a natural, unposed and documentary style. I started in 2011 offering to photograph a friend’s wedding and since then I’ve photographed over 220 weddings! I never get bored of weddings as each one has been wonderfully creative with different people to meet and different personalities to document. I really love what I do. I feel privileged to have got to know and have become friends with so many lovely couples and have picked up a few awards for my work along the way too. I’ve shot so many different types of weddings- Castle weddings in Tuscany, intimate weddings in a house by the sea, Cathedral weddings, weddings in the woods, DIY weddings where the Bride and Groom have made their own venue, rural barn weddings and a garden restaurant wedding in Serbia.
Documentary wedding photography is all about capturing the real moments and honest emotions in a non-obtrusive way. Weddings are fantastic to photograph as they are great celebrations where laughter and tears are never far away. When I photograph weddings I’m warm, friendly and relaxed. I wont be shouting at anyone to be anywhere, I’ll just be following what actually happens. The couples that I work for tend to be fun, creative and relaxed couples who want the moments and the atmosphere of their big day captured without having to stand around for hours saying cheese! After weddings the Bride and Groom say that I blended into the wedding and it was like having another friend at the wedding but with a camera. After the big day I get working on the images and I provide clients high resolution colour and black and white edited images on beautiful wooden USB flash drives in super speedy time.

I’m honoured to be part of Fearless which includes some of the best wedding photographers in the world. In 2017 I’ve won a Wedisson award and a YPWP award for two of my images.

Here’s a list of other wedding venues I’ve worked at. I have a real love for Italy and often go there to travel and photograph. I’m recommended by Exclusive Italy Weddings.
