I believe in what's real and what’s genuine.
I photograph real moments – not posing you in anyway. No staging of shots, capturing natural events as they happen.I believe love is the greatest of all things and deserves to be photographed candidly, with honesty and integrity...with plenty of LOL's along the way.
Photos have the power to re-enforce, trigger or sometimes replace memories, it is important that they repeat what you remember. I am married myself and have been on both sides of the lens. I understand what it means to put someone else in charge of your memories, to create a representation of you, to document your friends and family and capture the essence of the day. I'm one of the best wedding photographers London has to offer and I work all over the UK and Europe.
Be free, be fearless, be you. I'll photograph that, because that's real, and real is awesome!

I photograph real moments – not posing you in anyway. No staging of shots, capturing natural events as they happen. I became a wedding photographer because I believe love is the greatest of all things and deserves to be photographed candidly, with honesty and integrity...with plenty of LOL's along the way. Since weddings and photography both are my passion, I firmly believe that's what comes through in my photographs and that's why clients end up hiring me. It is my goal to be the best London wedding photographer!

Being a wedding photographer is the best job ever. I document moments between friends and family, happy or sad, as long as its real. Weddings can bring a roller-coaster of emotions, and you bet I'll be there to capture them. From the biggest laughs to the most tender of touches. Your wedding isn't just another blog post, or a carbon copy from the previous week. I photograph what makes your day real, nothing staged or contrived, ultimately delivering a story that you can relive over and over again. Find out why I'm considered one of the best wedding photographers in London, UK.
"We absolutely love our wedding pics! Thank you for capturing my hilarious face millions of times" Gorgeous, graceful and romantic. This stunning wedding at Dodford Manor was published on the Whimsical Wonderland Weddings Blog.
My style of wedding photography is completely unobtrusive. I don't interfere with any situation and let the events unfold in front of me. I love nothing more than capturing a moment that is true rather than constructed or contrived. Of course it’s always fun to take pictures of you both together. It’s my job to make you feel relaxed, to make sure that you have pictures of yourselves that you recognise! I won’t make you run and jump or fake a laugh. My photos reflect who you are, not who I think you should be just for a picture. Wedding photography has changed dramatically over the last ten years. Faster lenses and more sophisticated sensors means we can capture those intimate moments anywhere from atmospheric candlelit churches to intimate wine cellars.
Capturing your style is important too. The beautiful venue that may have taken you some time to choose, the fresh flowers, stylish cake, ribbons and details. Each of these components have taken time and planning, so it’s important to get pictures of these too. My job as your London wedding photographer is to ensure that everything will come together to create a narrative of your day. For more information or to discuss your day in more detail, just get in touch!
Each of my packages includes all of your images, fully edited in high resolution, these are watermark free and ready for you to print.
Weddings are fun, that is the essence of what I photograph. My work is candid, everything you see on the site is unposed, actually happened on the day magic. I am fascinated by relationships and emotions, I love that these are all explored in so many dimensions. Father and Daughter, Mother and Son, Boyfriends and Girlfriends. There is a magic in the air that everyone feels, and it's a beautiful thing.
My Photographs capture all of the emotions, the laughter and the tears.
My wedding photography focuses on capturing moments between people, but mostly the love and the laughter. Your weddings is one of the happiest days of your life, and your images should always reflect that. My wedding photography is relaxed and natural, each wedding is unique – no cliches, no working through a pose guide, just quality photographs, every time

I am incredibly happy to have also won my first international award this year, having two photographs selected for the Wedawards. Best wedding photographer in the UK, here I come!

I'm a wedding photographer in London, but I'll go anywhere. North, South, East and West, you name it. Trains, planes and automobiles! One of the greatest things about photography is that it can take you to the most amazing places. Thinking of a pre wedding shoot? why not take a leaf out of these guys books for a photoshoot.
This year alone I have shot weddings in the following locations:
London is a fantastic destination for a wedding; church, registry office or pub, you name it, London's got it. Venues wise, you're spoit for choice. As a London wedding photographer it's then my job to capture your day as you've planned it. The style, the relaxed atmosphere, the carnage! Your wedding photos in my opinion should be a record of what really happened on your wedding day, so you have genuine memories, not orchestrated dipped-kisses-fakeness. amazing fun everyone has. My couples and clients are typically looking for photography that captures the spirit of their day, their connection and love, as well as the ambience of their venues, my wedding photos create a cohesive narrative. In my experience, no two weddings are the same, so they should never be documented the same, I use my creative eye to tell a story, and never interfere or stage moments. Check out the recent events on the blog to see what you can expect from working together. Theres lots to see; a Jewish wedding at Green Park, Stowe school, an Asian wedding, party madness at The Brewery, and some english elegance at Pembroke Lodge. Weddings are amazing events, few careers in life offer you the chance to work with people when they're so brilliantly happy, it's an incredibly special thing, which is why I think everyone should book a photographer who they have met, know and like. The love that people share is of course important, but weddings and wedding photography for me is so much more than that. All the people you invite have played a part in your journey, and they are all important too. When shooting your wedding I always want to capture the day as it was and tell the story of you as a couple, but also tell the story of the connections you share with your family and friends. Wether you're getting married in London, or somewhere abroad, my approach is the same. Let's meet, make sure i'm a good fit for you, and then have some fun.
A wedding day you can enjoy because you don't have to spend hours posing. A wedding day you can enjoy because you know i'm a perfect fit, and you can completely ignore me (and trust I'll take brilliant photos). A wedding day you can enjoy, because it's not all about me, it's about you living these moments and not having them interrupted by someone asking you to pretend to put on lipstick. Liam Smith, london wedding photographer at your service.

Liam Smith, london wedding photographer at your service. You're in safe hands. My london wedding photography has won awards as art and as pure documentary, I like to think my style can be defined as simply being a good photographer, it doesn't have to fit a genre, a good photograph is a good photograph. I love cinema, I love paintings and I love weird abstract minimalism. It becomes frustrating to have to be defined by words, hopefully from looking at the weddings i've covered and the destinations to which i've travelled, my style can cope with any occasion.
Booking a london wedding photographer can be tough, but there are plenty of beautiful photographers out there creating wonderful work, hopefully after looking through my site, you'll count me among them. The reality is you're spoilt for choice, so don't get caught up in the salesy nonsense that blogs and magazines push, theres lots of us photographer folk in london so don't worry, no need to rush. Take your time, meet lots of people and go with your gut, you only get one crack at it so ask all the questions you want, i'm happy to answer them all. For my most recent work, check out the blog.
