DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER LONDON

Unposed and relaxed wedding reportage | UK and destinations.

I’ll keep this simple:

I care about giving you joyful, heartfelt, natural wedding photos on one of the most important days of your lives. I want you to look back on your pictures and have an inkling of what it was like to be there.  I want to give images that stick with you, that compel you.  This is your wedding day, not a fashion photoshoot so I won’t turn it into one.  I can be bossy during the group shots but other than that, I’m just a guest with a camera.  A super-talented photographer guest with a super-duper fancy camera.

“It’s hard to remember that this day will never come again. That the time is now and the place is here and that there are no second chances at a single moment.” -Jeanette Winterson

Your wedding is a gathering of loved ones.  Often they’re friends from afar and relatives scattered wide but all deeply cherished – all there to celebrate with you.  I’d love to document it all: Love, life, laughter – all those precious human connections that you’ll want to remember.

Hello and welcome.  I’m Wayne La, a London-based documentary wedding photographer covering joyful occasions across the UK and beyond.

We’d be a great match if…

…you see your wedding as a celebration of love – with the people you love.  You want pictures that reflect you – free from wedding clichés, formulas and templates.  You want to relax, be yourselves and to enjoy your day.

Rather than idealised, you want real life; rather than sanitised, you want warts and all.  Not literally of course, but you do want natural wedding photos that make your heart sing…and then shout louder as time goes by.  You view your big day as a celebration of life at a wedding; that there are possibilities for amusing and serendipitous to go with the extraordinarily beautiful, because you know a great song isn’t just a rousing chorus, or a fairy-tale isn’t full of Cinderellas!

kind words

“Hi Wayne, THANK YOU!!! The photos absolutely represent the spirit of the day and are exactly what we were hoping for! We feel so lucky that we found you and that your whole approach was the perfect match for us.  Your ability to frame documentary-style photos on the fly so perfectly has blown our minds!” – Fay and Andy

“Oh Wayne…We truly love them. They completely reflect our day…a beautiful, hilarious celebration of love laughter and friendship.” -Nancy and Sean

“The photos have arrived! And of course, we absolutely love them!!! You’ve really captured the spirit of the day and all the moments that made it special. We can’t stop looking at them – there’s just so much to see in every photo, and the longer we look at them, the more there is to see! The compositions are just genius. We had such a fun day, and I’m just delighted that we’ve got these photos to remember it by – we’re so lucky we found you.” – Cat and Haak
