Wedding Photographer London Sites
Wednesday’s wedding was actually an elopement for Katherine and Paul from North Carolina. The couple wanted to experience as many London sites as possible after their wedding ceremony and photography at Tower Bridge.
I met them at their apartment in Mayfair and from there we took a Blue Badge Cab to Tower Bridge, then to the North Tower, half way up the are private rooms available. It was at Tower Bridge that one of the couple’s friends, Hughston read a blessing, then the couple exchanged vows and celebrated with champagne. We took the lift up to the main gantry walkways and took some fun wedding portraits among all the surprised tourists.
From the City the excellent Blue Badge taxi driver took the couple and I on a whirlwind tour of London. Bryan our guide made the day a genuinely fascinating experience by pointing out and explaining the extraordinary little known history behind all of the London land marks we passed or visited over the course of the day. We managed to fit in visiting Tower Bridge, the South Bank, Shakespeare’s Globe, St Paul’s Cathedral, The Millennium Bridge, Chinatown and the West End.
Kat and Paul were the most friendly couple and the wedding day was a joy to photograph. I needed to travel light that day so for each mini shoot I used two Leica cameras, with three lenses only, keeping the spare one in a pocket. It meant I could run ahead, scout a location, come back to meet the couple frame the image without being encumbered with my usual kit.

Hi Sam, We were sorry we didn't get a chance to meet you. We all really enjoyed meeting Douglas. We laughed all day. I expressed to my family who lives in the UK what a great experience we had and recommended him to them if there was ever a need. - Bride
Here you can see the birthday party photography of a fun evening for this 60th Birthday party. The guests were treated to drinks, bowl food and speeches on the ground floor of the Bluebird on Kings Road in London, before dancing the night away.

Family Photographer London
Here are a few favourites from a family photo shoot taken in London last weekend …The main consideration in these sessions with small children is ‘speed’ . Speed to be able to capture a fleeting smile from either the parent or the child, ideally both at the same time…and ‘patience’ to be ready and poised, OK now thats TWO elements.
I’m usually lying on the floor with an apparently inconsolable baby who suddenly flips to smiles in a fraction of a second. Therefore manual focusing and exposure make life much easier as the variables are minimised and there is less left to chance. Often too the perfect family photograph rely on speed, patience and distraction, thats THREE things into the family photography mix. So before this post turns into a Monty Python script, in summary to be a successful family photographer you have to be ready for anything and everything and consider lying on the floor.
