Documentary event photography in London

From birthdays & anniversaries to awards nights & Christmas parties



My favourite photographs in our own family albums are always the candid shots of us laughing and chatting and forgetting the camera was even there, so those are the photos I love to make for my clients at their own events and celebrations. I’ve got a friendly, unobtrusive approach, and I’m totally focussed on catching those candid pictures that capture all the atmosphere and remind you exactly how it felt to be there on the day. It’s perfect for people like me who don’t want to spend their party lining up to say “cheese!” – just forget I’m there and enjoy yourselves!

“Without exception, the best photos of our friends and family that we have ever seen. Every photo is so natural, unselfconscious and relaxed, such a wonderful reminder of the way it felt to be in the room at the time. We are over the moon with the beautiful photos and will treasure them forever.”The Waring Family | Elopement Reception in Wimbledon

Event Photography Packages

I’m not the cheapest photographer in London, as I believe in offering a quality service and not cramming in as many jobs as possible, and I think you’ll never regret the investment you make in professional photos made by someone who cares. I have one simple digital-only package that includes everything that goes into making your photos, and then you can choose whether you’d like to enjoy them in your own custom-designed book, or simply on a screen.

(I think a book is a lovely thing to have, but I would say that as I design them myself!)


My digital-only event package includes: a pre-party planning chat by phone or email • travel in SW & central London • all the photography • all the editing & processing • an online Photofilm sneak peek • an online gallery to view all the photos • one download of the finished digital negatives for safekeeping • a licence releasing the images for your personal use • and a gift token for 10% off a book or print order. Prices start at £325 including five hours work: two hours photography + three hours processing. Click here to ask about availability.

My Hardback Photographic Books include: up to 240 of your favourites • custom design • two rounds of tweaks to get it just right • printing and binding • gift-wrapping by yours truly • and courier delivery in the UK. Custom designed books start at £195, or for the best value there’s two bundles available. Click here for more about my books.

* Friday to Sunday is the most popular time for events and parties and I need to charge a four hour minimum on these days. Although, if you include an album or bundle with your package, or you’re booking at very short notice, I’ll be happy to bend the rules for you. Please get in touch and we’ll see what I can do for you!
