Documentary Event Photography in London

Natural, stylish photos capturing all the excitement & atmosphere of your special occasion.

Birthdays  |  Engagements  |  Christmas  |  Corporate



I specialise in natural, documentary-style event photography at family celebrations and corporate events. I think the best event photos capture all the atmosphere and excitement with candid moments and details, so I photograph events with a discrete, easy-going approach, leaving you free to relax and enjoy yourselves without constantly posing for the camera. I love delighting my clients with photos full of memories they’ll treasure, so if that’s what you’re looking for, say hello!

My service includes all the photography, all the processing, a private web gallery, custom books of your favourites, archive-quality prints, and plenty other goodies. If you like what you see in my galleries below just drop me a line at the bottom of this page to ask about availability, and I’ll get back to you personally as soon as I can. Thanks for visiting!

Your style is so perfect. Each picture has a purpose and a meaning. Each picture oozes feeling and emotion. I couldn’t have asked you to do anything differently!”Dwehasta Shah | 40th Birthday Party

Hardback Photobooks

When it comes to enjoying your photos after the event, I think nothing compares to curling up on the sofa with your very own book of favourites, away from your phone and computer. You’re welcome to make your own album, but if you’d rather not toil away at your computer I would love to make it for you.

My Hardback Photographic Books are made with thick sheets of premium lustre photopaper, bound in glossy hardback, and available in 12×12 and 8×8. Duplicates are available at a lower price in the same size or smaller, and as an exclusive bonus there’s 15% off every album included in your custom collection at the time of booking.
