Documentary Wedding Photography in Dorset, Wiltshire and London
Hello, I’m Andy. I am a Documentary Wedding Photographer based on the South Coast of England, recording weddings throughout Dorset, the UK and Europe. I am a specialist in a style of wedding photography known variously as Documentary Wedding Photography, Photojournalism or Reportage.
These names are often misused or applied incorrectly so it is easy to be confused when searching for your wedding photographer. Whichever word you decide to use, they are all slightly different ways to describe a similar approach and style. It is a completely authentic way to photograph a wedding with no contrived poses, disruption to the flow of the day or fad-driven processing styles.
Documentary Wedding Photographer
I am a full-time professional recording weddings all year round in the UK and internationally. By booking me to photograph your wedding you are assured of receiving a top end artistic service backed up by an established team. Creating timeless story-telling photography is both my livelihood and passion. I take my role seriously and at the same time am very lucky to have huge fun whilst doing it.
I am proud to be an active member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) - a professional organisation promoting excellence in wedding photojournalism. The first place to view a selection of my images is in my wedding photography portfolio. My latest work and full weddings are added regularly to the blog.
I record weddings as a passive observer; looking for the relationships, moments and emotions that occur naturally and without direction. I won't boss you around or make you pose and constantly look at the camera. You don't have to think about anything other than enjoying the occasion. I work tirelessly to record the days events honestly and discreetly. It is no one else's day other than your own to savour. I am honoured and delighted to get the chance to share it with you, but the last thing I would attempt to do is try and dictate how it should run.
Fine Art Portrait Photography
The refined and proven approach I apply for documenting weddings, also works exceptionally well for creating images of family life. Throughout the year I undertake a limited number of commissioned Day In Our Life portrait photography sessions, creating uniquely engaging photographs of your family. These images - deeply personal and valuable - are available for presentation with a UK sourced range of fine-art prints, leather albums, bespoke hand-made frames and digital media.
With high demand to photograph weddings around the UK, I get to see a lot of the country and inevitably travel some considerable distance. To minimise the environmental impact of my role, I work hard to reduce and offset my carbon emmissions and be eco-friendly in my approach.
Allister Freeman Photography
As an associate of Allister Freeman, I have been mentored and trained by one of the top UK wedding photographers. Influenced by Allister's renowned documentary approach, fine attention to detail and artistic appeal, I have developed my own style whilst sharing those qualities. With the backing of our studio premises, we have a team of editors, printers and framers to support delivery of high-end, luxury products and services.
