Documentary Wedding Photography

Natural, storytelling photography of your whole wedding day

London  |  Glasgow  |  Destination Weddings



Hello! I’m Owen, a friendly Scottish photographer based in SW London, and I’ve been making natural, story-telling photographs at weddings and celebrations since 2007. Whether you’re planning a traditional church wedding, a modern city ceremony or a bohemian garden party, I love capturing the heart and the soul of the day in stylish, candid photos full of emotion, all the wonderful moments you remember and plenty more that you never noticed. If that’s what you want from your wedding photos, I could be exactly the photographer you’re looking for.

Your wedding photos will be how you remember the day for the rest of your lives, so finding the right photographer for you is so important. To help you decide we’ll meet up in person, or by Skype or FaceTime, so we can get to know each other, have a proper chat about all your exciting plans and decide on a collection that suits you both perfectly. Then on the big day itself I’ll simply fit in around you, telling the story just the way it happened with my own creative eye and no stress or fuss.

To find out more about what I can do for you simply drop me a line and we’ll take it from there – I hope to speak to you soon!

Kind words from happy couples

“It is impossible to summarise the depth of Owen’s talent. He is simply an exceptional photographer with an incredible eye for detail … so discrete that half the time you don’t even know he’s there. Our guests said Owen’s pictures were the best they’d ever seen and we still can’t believe our luck he was available to capture our special day!”Tina & Shervin | Richmond Wedding

“The first thing everyone says when they look at the photos isn’t how beautiful my dress is or how happy we look but “Who was your photographer?!” I can completely understand why – the photos Owen took are, without exception, the best photos of our friends and family that we have ever seen. I honestly couldn’t recommend him more highly. We are over the moon with the beautiful photos and will treasure them forever.”Emma & Mike | Wimbledon Wedding

He was calm, patient and full of helpful ideas at every turn, which made us feel completely relaxed and comfortable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Owen to anyone looking for a wedding photographer – he’s a rare talent.”Steven & Chris | Mayfair Wedding

Fine Art Wedding Albums

Your wedding photos should last forever, so I want you to enjoy them at their vibrant best in a beautifully made book that you’ll fall in love with from the moment you unwrap it, your first family heirloom and something you’ll treasure as a couple, with your children, and even your children’s children.

I believe your wedding album isn’t something you get to enjoy ‘today’ – although I think you’ll love it from the first moment you open it! – but an investment for a lifetime ahead, your only lasting physical memento of your wedding day. I know you’ll still be curling up on the sofa together to enjoy your album ten, twenty, even fifty years later, so I take real pride and care in designing them for my couples, and the moment I hand over your finished album is so rewarding.

I design my books using all the best photos to tell your story (you’re welcome to choose them yourself), and then each one is handmade by the craftspeople at the world-renowned Folio Albums in Yorkshire using the finest eco-friendly leathers, fabrics, inks and papers. I think it’s the best book you’ll ever own, made to last you a lifetime. If you’d like to gift your parents with their very own copy, I also offer specially discounted duplicates in a gorgeous 6×6 size – the perfect way to thank them for all their support.

Wedding Investment

Ikeep my wedding investment pricing nice and simple, just a single package that pays for everything that goes into making your photos before, during and after your wedding. I also commit to a limited number of weddings each year, so I can focus on doing my very best work for you instead of cramming in as many bookings as possible. Although I include a full set of digitals for safekeeping I believe your photos should be cherished as real prints, not stuck on a hard drive, so you can add a fine art album and boxed fine art prints at any time, and there’s a discount available for everything you include in your collection when you reserve the date.

Full day weddings

For a full day of wedding photography I’ll dedicate thirty to forty hours to making the perfect photographs for you, including all the time we’ll spend meeting to chat through your wedding plans, and all the editing, processing and album design work that comes afterwards, making your photos perfect for you.

I start with at least eight hours with you on the day. Of course, your wedding only happens once and I think you’ll love having as many moments captured as possible, including those all-important shots of Uncle Bob throwing shapes on the dance floor, so it’s absolutely no problem to add more hours of coverage if you need it. Most couples book ten hours which I think is just the right amount of time to tell the full story from bride and groom prep through to the first few dances.

From £1400

  • At least eight hours of photography
  • 20-30 additional hours of prep & processing
  • Additional coverage hourly
  • Bespoke pricing available for destination weddings
  • Discounts available midweek & off-peak (Oct-Nov, Jan-March)

Half day weddings

Although I prioritise full-day weddings, if you’re planning something smaller and more intimate I’d love to be part of it. For smaller London-based weddings and ceremonies I offer a half-day collection dedicating up to fifteen hours to making your wedding photographs, including up to four hours photography, enough to capture the ceremony, a formal portrait session, and the first hour or so of celebrations at your reception.

From £445

  • One to four hours photography
  • Available in London only
  • Limited availability on peak weekends (April-Sept, Dec)
