Hey, I’m James, a documentary wedding photographer in Kent and throughout the UK. Thanks for dropping by my little corner of the internet! Hopefully you can get to know me and my work a little better whilst you’re here. But first, a bit about me- I live in Canterbury with my best friend/lovely wife Bethany but grew up in Belgium. I’ve been in the UK for nearly 10 years now but I still love to give my rusty French a workout every now and again. I love comic books and CrossFit in equal measure but my love of food could trump both. In my opinion, the spicier the better, something passed down to me by my Nigerian parents I think!

A bit more about me

The most important thing to know about me is that my approach is relaxed and friendly, something I hope to bring to every wedding I’m a part of. You don’t want to look back on your photos and see a fixed smile in every one. You want to see you and your other half enjoying the day to the full! And trust me, I know how hard that can be when the camera’s on you. I’m always the one behind the camera, rather than in front of it, so when it’s on me, I squirm and pull funny faces. This is genuinely a running joke among my friends! My best man even brought it up in his speech at my wedding! That’s why I take the time to get to know you and make sure you’re as relaxed as possible. It leads to beautiful and honest photographs.

My wife left the choosing of our own wedding photographer down to me (after I rejected her first few suggestions!). I chose someone who took beautiful photographs but also someone who I knew and got on really well with. This made all the difference as we were able to really relax around her and forget about the camera. And that’s what I want to bring to your wedding- a relaxed approach that allows you to be yourselves.

My style as a wedding photographer in Kent

As I said, I’m a documentary wedding photographer in Kent. This means that I capture real, natural and unposed photographs which reflect the day as it happens. I love the moments that make each wedding day unique and where you can really see the emotion from the day. So if you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Kent, or anywhere in the UK for that matter, it would be great to hear from you.

I look forward to hearing from you!
