Kent Wedding Photographer
Hi, I’m Olly Knight, a Kent wedding photographer who photographs weddings in a natural, documentary style. I started in 2011 offering to photograph a friend’s wedding and since then I’ve photographed over 200 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. As well as doing wedding photography in Kent I’ve photographed many weddings around the UK and internationally as a destination wedding photographer and I feel privileged to have picked up a few awards along the way. I’ve shot civil ceremonies, Church ceremonies, Cathedral weddings, outdoor weddings in the woods, DIY weddings, Castle weddings in Tuscany and rural barn weddings.
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 relaxed couples who want the fun and the atmosphere of their big day captured without having to stand around for hours saying cheese! After most weddings the Bride and Groom say it was lovely to have me at the wedding but they hardly noticed I was there for much of the day. 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. 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 including Allington Castle, Beacon House in Whitstable, Crown Lodge in Wye, East Quay Venue in Whitstable, Hayne House in Hythe, Kent Life in Maidstone, Knowlton Court near Canterbury, Preston Court near Canterbury, Salomons Estate in Tunbridge Wells, Shepherd Neame Brewery in Faversham, Stowe School in Buckinghamshire, The Ferry House Inn in Sheerness, The Secret Garden in Ashford and Winters Barns in Canterbury. 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.
