KENT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I’m Olly, a wedding photographer who photographs in my county of Kent, London, the UK and overseas as a destination wedding photographer. I photograph weddings in a natural, unposed and documentary style. I never ask anyone to look at the camera or to “say cheese”, I just capture the moments that will mean the most to the Bride and Groom. I love my job (although it never feels like a job). I started in 2011 offering to photograph a friend’s wedding and since then I’ve photographed close to 300 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 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 including two 2021 Fearless Photographer Awards and two This is Reportage Awards! I’ve shot many different types of weddings- Castle weddings in Tuscany, intimate beach weddings in Whitstable, Cathedral weddings in Canterbury, weddings in the woods, DIY weddings and a garden restaurant wedding in Serbia. Contact me if you’d like me to be part of your wedding.
Not only is he a talented artist and captured moments that warmed our hearts, Olly is the kindest, generous and sweetest guy. He actually feels like a best friend. Everyone loved him and he was SO easy to be around and made us feel incredibly comfortable. Michael & Sevda
DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Documentary wedding photography is all about capturing real moments and emotions in a non-obtrusive way. Weddings are fantastic to photograph as they are great celebrations full of laughter and tears. 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 as if they are at a photo shoot! After weddings couples say that I blended into the wedding and it was like having another friend at the wedding with a camera. This image below of Maria and her Mum sharing a quiet moment together won a Fearless Award and This is Reportage Award in 2021.
He was instantly like part of the family, spent time chatting with our guests, laughing with us, whilst ensuring he captured the most magical shots of our wedding day. The photos have me crying my eyes out every time, they are just absolutely perfect! Ollie & Maxine
DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I love travelling and going on an adventure so if you’re getting married abroad have a look at my previous destination weddings. This video shows how I work at overseas weddings. I’m not there as a bossy supplier telling you where to be and what to do, I blend in like a guest with a camera and document all the best moments. I take on 2-3 overseas weddings per year.
