Covering Kent, Surrey, London, Essex and nationwide
You’ll no doubt be investing a lot of money in your wedding, so you’ll want to remember it. Long after your memories have faded, your wedding photography will be there to remind you of your special day.....forever. That’s why investing in a qualified, professional photographer whose style you like, whose photographs move you, whose photographs you can imagine being in, is a vitally important part of your wedding planning.
I, i.e Unique Image Photography, offer beautiful yet natural, wedding photography with a mixture of candid reportage and directed images - because sometimes all that is needed is a little nudge in the right direction - to capture the love, fun and emotion of your special day.
Your wedding day is about you and it is a day you’ll want to remember for the rest of your life. Photography plays a huge role in your wedding – or at least it should do. All those months of preparation, yet the beautiful day itself will be over in a flash. How will you remember all the details?
Over time your memories may fade but good quality photography won’t. Investing in a qualified, professional wedding photographer to capture the precious moments of your special day is crucial, so that the memory of it stays alive and can be shared with your family, friends and future children.
I take a step back and can be very unobtrusive which is exactly what I think photography should be. Your wedding day is about you. I will let the day unfold and capture it - not dictate it.
I love weddings. I capture all the fun, emotion and details of the day as well as taking you two off for some couple shots. I prefer to keep things as natural as possible but sometimes reality needs a little nudge to get that perfect shot. I am more than happy to capture a few group shots, after all it is usually one of the only occasions where families get together. When it comes to the group photographs, I gather the necessary people together and gently direct them. I'm not bossy but I get the job done and quickly. There is nothing worse than hangng around for ages being bossed around! I'm pleased to say that I'm NOT that person.
As a wedding photographer I prefer a more natural style of photography, one that tells a story and one that is a true representation of your day so that when you look back at your images it brings all those amazing memories flooding back to you as if it were yesterday.
Over the 20 years that I've been a photographer I have been known to...be a witness for the bride and groom, iron a wedding dress, fix suspenders, dress little bridemaids, change nappies, get the groom showered (yes really although NOT literally), remake all the bridal bouquets when the spray paint came off onto the bridesmaids dress, drive bridesmaids to the church and also ferry guests to the reception.
If you are looking for a photographer and want your day captured in a beautiful, honest way please get in touch, I would love to meet you and hear about your plans!
Based in Bromley, Kent, I primarily cover weddings in South East London, Kent, Surrey, London, Essex, Sussex and the South East of England. However, I do travel throughout the rest of the UK and I also take on a number of international and destination weddings.
I have a wedding bucket list so if you are getting married in Iceland, New York, Las Vegas, in a Tipi or just eloping by yourselves please do get in touch and we can discuss your day.
I offer 3 various photography collections. However they are adaptable or I can create a bespoke coverage to suit your needs.
Please browse my galleries to see examples of my work. All the wedding photography on this site is of real people, not models, and all were taken on actual wedding days, not on styled shoots or workshop days!
Pre-wedding shootAchieve the best wedding album possible
To help you achieve the best wedding album possible, I will take you out on a pre-wedding shoot before your wedding day. This allows you to get used to being photographed and to relax in front of the camera, which leads to much more natural images. It also means we’re not strangers and you’ll know what to expect from me on your wedding day.
