KENT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I’m Olly Knight, a Kent wedding photographer who photographs weddings 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 photograph 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 nearly 250 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. I’ve shot so many different types of weddings- Castle weddings in Tuscany, intimate beach weddings in Whitstable, Cathedral weddings in Canterbury, 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.
SEE MY BEST OF 2018…
What and absolute legend..! The nicest man you could ever meet. Having Olly there was like having a guest and photographer rolled into one! Us and all of our guests have done nothing but compliment his incredible work. We are so glad we chose him, he has shown us nothing but care, respect and kindness, putting us at ease from the outset. We are blown away by the photos! Paul & Sarah-Lou
DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
What is documentary wedding photography? Well it’s 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 as if they are at a photo shoot! 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.
DESTINATION WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I photograph a few weddings overseas each year. 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’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. I’ve also been a finalist at The Wedding Industry Awards in 2015 and 2018. I’m thankful that I’m a recommended photographer at some of Kent’s best wedding venues. Here’s a list of lots of the 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.
