Documentary Event Photography in London

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


Birthdays  |  Engagements  |  Christmas  |  Corporate


I think the best party photos are the ones that capture how it felt to be there, so that’s what I specialise in: natural, documentary-style event photography, with a discrete, easy-going approach. And with me taking care of the photos you’ll be free to relax and enjoy the party with your family and friends, instead of being stuck behind your own camera all night!

I love capturing fleeting moments and memories that you’ll always treasure, so if that’s what you want from your own photographs then I’m your guy!

My private event service starts at just £295 and every booking includes all the photography, all the processing, your own private web gallery and a set of digitals to keep. I think that years later you’ll really appreciate having a physical memento to cherish so I also make custom hardback books of your favourite photos, and there’s 10% off your book when you include it in your package.

If you like the sort of photos I make then I’d love to chat to you about your plans, so just drop me a line at the bottom of this page, and I’ll get back to you personally as soon as I can!

Hardback Photographic Books

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 10% off every album included in your custom collection at the time of booking.
