Wedding photographer: Chris Barber wedding photographer London
Photo Title: Fire-mans lift during fireworks
Photo details: Aisha + Mart during the fireworks at their wedding reception at Redhouse Barns, West Midlands. These guys were originally facing with their backs to me as they watched the fireworks. I set up a light just out of shot on the right-hand side to grab a photo of them cuddling. Then...out of totally nowhere, Mart just grabbed Aisha + threw her over his shoulder, spinning her around. He totally rocked it out with the finger point, too.
About the photographer: Hello, I’m Chris! I am a London wedding photographer creating fun images that are filled with character, energy + genuine laughter. My approach is simple: I work with my couples as actual human beings to create images that reflect their personalities – not just an artificial ‘version’ of what you both look like when you’re forced to look a certain way. That means that my work avoids ‘posing’ + instead focuses creating a ‘space’ where you, your friends + families feel that they can continue being themselves in front of the camera.

Photo details: This was a totally unposed and natural moment between the mother who was buttoning Lisa's dress and Lisa's sister who burst into tears when she went to kiss her sibling. I took a few and hoped for the best. This is my favourite in terms of composition and tenderness and simply capturing an unrepeatable moment which is what all of my photography is about.... I think.
About the photographer: My name is Jason Pierce-Williams. I fell in love with photography 30 years ago while teaching in Lisbon. I have a particular passion for observational Street photography and bring much of this style to my weddings and other events. I hold a first class honours in photography and have exhibited my work both abroad and here at The National Portrait Gallery. I have also been published many times, including the prestigious Black and White Photography Magazine. I am a full time photographer and photography tutor. I have shot well over 300 weddings and countless other events including a five year tenancy with DJ Mag where I learnt proficiency in low light and flash photography. I cover all of London but have shot all over the world including India, Poland, Spain, Italy, Germany and Switzerland.
Photo details: This is one of my favourite evening couple's portraits from 2016. I had such a fun, down to earth couple in Lynn and Chris. This was taken towards the end of their day at King's College in London and I feel it really shows their relaxed, fun-loving personalities and true connection, still showcasing the classical setting of the venue.
About the photographer: I'm a friendly, but professional, wedding photographer. I photograph weddings in a relaxed documentary style, with lots of candid and naturally posed portraits as well as shots of all the beautiful details. It's really important to me that the day runs how you would like it to -so it's comletely up to you how many group photos you would like to have and whether we do posed couple's portraits or something much more relaxed and candid.
