During lockdown in 2020 I started making films and hugely enjoyed it. I love the way that movement, emotion and music can come together to create something really beautiful and emotive. I’ve started making cinematic films for weddings and families in 2020. I keep the style similar to how I’d photograph. I don’t pose people, I tell a story through what really happens. I also compose and record an original soundtrack to the films. Wedding Films are usually 7-10 minutes in length. Email me for a quote for your wedding.
Dominic & Jodie got married on 29th August 2020. After photographing close to 250 weddings this is the first wedding that I’ve filmed! They had their ceremony at St Andrews Church in Shepherdswell. Dominic and Jodie had to adapt their wedding to fit in with covid restrictions so there were less guests but there was still a real sense of celebration. Dominic & Jodie were always smiling, really sweet around each other and were a pleasure to film.
“Dom and I booked our wedding fairly last minute due to changes with government guidelines and COVID. Olly was a wonderful part of the day, he chatted with our guests and blended in excellently; we very quickly forgot he was there with his camera! The communication with him before, during and after was faultless. Such a lovely person who added to the atmosphere of the day. Both Dom and I were absolutely thrilled when we received the video of our wedding day. Olly went above and beyond by writing and recording a soundtrack to accompany it & it’s simply beautiful. He perfectly captured the most special parts of the day and put them together in a wonderful way. We really can’t recommend him enough.”
My friends The Butlers booked me to do a family shoot last week for them. The shoot was amazing. I spent some time photographing and videoing Will, Emily and their two girls playing in the garden and then I documented their walk across the fields next to their house. I appreciated jokes made up by a 4 year old, lots of skipping and some really sweet moments between the two Sisters as they held hands out on the walk. My way of photographing and videoing isn’t to pose but to capture the essence of family life. If you like this style then get in touch.
Where do we start?! We are fortunate enough to call Olly a friend and took the opportunity to have some family photos taken before we leave Canterbury. Time with Olly was a TOTAL joy! We genuinely forgot he was there to take pictures and we were just chatting and laughing together. Our two girls love Olly and Floss had an amazing time laughing at all of his exceptional Dad jokes! The photos are totally beautiful and capture the heart of our little family, we adore them and will treasure them so much. Olly has captured memories of our time in Canterbury, and delivered the images so quickly. Just couldn’t recommend Olly highly enough. Our Florence (4) ‘Olly was very funny, and I liked the pictures. And he was so clever that he did the music for our video.’
