KENT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I’m Olly Knight, 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 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 over 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 including a 2021 Fearless Photographer Award! 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 where the Bride and Groom have made their own venue, rural barn weddings and a garden restaurant wedding in Serbia. I’m passionate about sustainability so I run my business with renewable energy and drive to weddings in an electric car. I’ve signed up to the SME Climate Hub. 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 the Bride and Groom say that I blended into the wedding and it was like having another friend at the wedding with a camera. This image below won a Fearless Award in 2021. The boy had fallen asleep on the bench and when his Mum saw the image she said it perfectly sums him up as he falls asleep everywhere! He’s been nicknamed “Door-mouse”. Documentary photography shows real life and real personalities, like Door-mouse!
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.
