Wedding Photographer

I'm a destination wedding photographer for couples who want their wedding to be more of a celebration than a photo shoot! I've got to photograph many incredible weddings in Italy, France, Portugal, Germany and Serbia and I cover them all in my documentary, relaxed and honest style. I love travelling to beautiful places, experiencing new cultures, eating different food and capturing moments in different settings so this is a dream job for me (although it never feels like work!)

I get to know each of my couples really well so by the time of the wedding I'll be more like a guest with a camera rather than a supplier. I have a lot of fun at overseas weddings and get involved in the day! Watch the video to see my approach to photographing destination weddings…

- Antonio & Chloe, Tenuta di Sticciano in Tuscany 

"Olly was part of our big day not only as our photographer but part of the wedding party. this was lovely as you forgot he was even taking photos, making us very comfortable in front of the camera. Our guests complimented not only his work but how friendly and welcoming he was. We can’t recommend Olly enough"

- MIchael & Judith, escape to the chateau wedding 

"Olly is warm, friendly and instantly puts you at ease; he clearly knows his stuff. Olly slotted perfectly into the day, he spoke with everyone so people relaxed around him allowing for the natural shots which is what we wanted. if you want natural, raw, emotional, story telling and quality photography then this really is your man!"

James & Paige, Settimo Restaurant in Rome

"We are over the moon with the photos we received and are so glad we have all these moments captured, eternalising the memories from our wedding day for us and all our guests."

SAI & PRIYA, Quinta da Palmeirinha, Algarve

"Olly was the Photographer for our 3 day destination wedding and there aren’t enough words to describe how happy we are with his work! He is hard working, passionate, so kind and got along with all of our guestS too"

- Simon & Heather, Chateau de Lerse in Bordeaux

"Wow what a fantastic wedding photographer Olly is! We are so pleased with our photos…he perfectly captured our day with all the best moments and made us (who normally hate being in front of a camera) feel relaxed. Couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose Olly."

You’ve seen my overseas work, but why take me with you to your overseas wedding? The first reason is style. A Bride and Groom want a photographer whose work they really like. I work as a documentary wedding photographer in a very unposed, natural way. In some parts of the world you won’t get photographers with this particular style, it’ll be more traditional. The second reason is communication; if your photographer is based in the same country as you then you can meet them before the wedding, in person, to get a feel for what they are like then you can communicate with them on the wedding day with no language barrier. 

My rates for destination weddings aren’t much more than my UK rates but I do ask for my transport and accommodation to be covered. If you're getting married abroad and you're interested in having me as your wedding photographer email me and we can get excited about the trip together!
