THE UK’S LEADING WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALIST – THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
I’m a wedding photojournalist with a background in press photojournalism. I spent 12 years working for regional and national newspapers before becoming a full time wedding photographer in 2000. My background in press photojournalism makes my wedding photography distinctive with a real story telling style. Wedding Photojournalism is natural, unposed photography which allows you to get on with enjoying your wedding in the knowledge your photographer will capture beautiful story telling images. I will still capture those important family photographs and relaxed portraits, but for the majority of the day I’m capturing the day as it unfolds.
Fleeting moments from your day can never be recreated, whether you are getting married in a church, a garden, a small room or in a castle, I want to capture the pure emotion of your precious moments. While posed photographs have a place in my wedding photography I find the real memories associated with a moment in time make more powerful photographs that are my signature style. A wedding is a time to gather together your dearest friends and family and in future years my style of reportage wedding photography will remind you of the special times you shared together.
documentary wedding photographer
I’m Simon Atkins, a Northamptonshire wedding photographer working throughout the UK and overseas. I was one of the first in the UK to develop this style know as documentary wedding photography or wedding photojournalism, since then I have photographed over 1000 weddings in every English county, as well as in Scotland, Wales, Venice, Menorca, Ireland and France. I’m the recommended photographer at Temple Island (Henley on Thames) and Wadhurst Castle.
I’d love to chat about your plans, if you are looking for relaxed and natural wedding photography please get in touch.
