About

I’m Hannah, a London-based wedding photographer, designer, and owner of Hannah Bain Photography who loves travel, design, music and visual story-telling. I live in South London with my husband and our son, Isaac, as well as our dog, Edith.

I’ve had an interest in photography for as long as I can remember. Much of my twenties was spent travelling around the world, documenting all the people and places I experienced along the way. But it wasn’t until 2019 when a friend asked me to photograph their wedding, that I began to turn to wedding photography professionally. I was immediately hooked.

Weddings are special events. Each one has a particular energy to it, its own touch of magic - and as your wedding photographer, this is what I’ll be tuning into. My photography style is relaxed, natural. My aim is to capture not just how your wedding looks, but how it feels.

I balance my photography work alongside my career as a graphic designer. I believe the two professions complement one another: my training as a designer has given me a good eye for framing, composition, and style. It also means that I only take on a limited number of weddings each year. This gives me the space to approach each wedding with a fresh pair of eyes, and ensures I can deliver the best quality all-round service.

My Style

My style is best described as natural, creative, storytelling wedding photography. I love capturing real moments and real emotions as they unfold before me - even the ones you didn’t know were happening! I may step in to provide a little guidance or help, but I do my best to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed, enabling you to enjoy your big day as planned.

Each wedding is entirely unique and I like to approach it that way. My style doesn’t involve a list or a template. I don’t have a special formula. I approach each wedding instinctively, with a personal touch. For me, this is the best way to create a collection of authentic and stunning images that tell a story of you as a couple.

One of my favourite aspects of wedding photography is meeting new people and building genuine friendships along the way. I enjoy getting to know my couples beforehand: discovering their story; understanding their hopes and expectations; knowing what’s important to them on their big day.

So, if you are considering me for your big day, it would be a privilege to get to know you. I look forward to working with you and creating something wonderful together.

Beyond expectations and more

It was such a pleasure to meet you, Hannah. Thank you so much for everything! Not only, were the photos absolutely amazing but you were just so kind and patient and thoughtful. Everyone loved you and I honestly wished you could have stayed longer as a guest and just be our friend! The photos were beautiful. You made us look chilled, natural and good looking haha all the best angles. Plus I loved the combo of colour and black/ white photos. You’re creativity and artistic eye as well meant you really captured our autumn wedding with all the right backgrounds, shades and colours. I’m also so grateful for all the tips. Aidan and I are very easy going and didn’t think of key things that we ended up having because of you. Such the confetti tips, pre organising the groups of people for family shots etc.. timings for solo shots and all. Thank you thank you!

Hannah is fantastic!

HANNAH BAIN

In one word…fantastic.

In lots of words…

Hannah was brilliant from start to finish. Incredibly friendly, professional, helpful, and a pleasure to spend the day with. It honestly felt like we had known her for years and that we were hanging out with a friend who was capturing the fun of the day. Our friends and family thought that Hannah was one of the guests because she was so friendly and simply blended in. I personally don’t enjoy being photographed, but Hannah made us feel comfortable and relaxed whilst she captured the magic.

My husband and I decided that Spring 2022 was as good a time as any to get married and booked the registry office at Old Marylebone Town Hall three months before our chosen date (28-May-2022). Having been together for 15 years we were more focused on making sure our 16 nearest and dearest had saved the date and were less worried about the details of our low-key and no-thrills wedding. 3.5 weeks before the wedding we decided to get our act together and contact some photographers.

Hannah’s responses were prompt, her prices were clear, and we were incredibly fortunate that she had availability in her busy schedule. We had the choice of three photographers, but we particularly liked Hannah’s style of capturing natural and real moments, rather than posing for the camera.

Hannah scheduled a Zoom call to meet us and run through our requirements. We knew that we wanted natural, candid photos, but we were indecisive about where the photos should be taken. I’m sure that our airy-fairy requirements (especially being just a couple of weeks before the wedding) would have caused other photographers some stress, but Hannah seemed unphased by it; she guided us through what might work well around the venue, and she collated a Pinterest Board of suitable nearby locations. My husband and I walked around Regents Park a couple of weeks before the wedding to pick out some photo locations and Hannah and I put our ideas together and made a plan. She also continued to make great suggestions in the lead-up to the day.

Hannah was flexible with her timings too (I amended the arrival time just days before the wedding) and she was happy to ‘play it by ear’ on the day. We had booked her for 3 hours, but she was flexible to stay longer if we needed her to.

The booking, deposit and balance payment process was simple. Hannah’s prices are clear and excellent value for money. Being able to book and pay by the hour was perfect for our small wedding.

She sent the photos to us much quicker than we were expecting and created a mini webpage that we could share with our friends and family. We were overwhelmed with the results and hadn’t realised just how important this part of the wedding was. Hannah documented the most enjoyable day of our lives that truly reflected the joy, fun, and love. We’re able to look through the photos in time-stamp order and re-live the day. She even made some cute little videos for Instagram which we will cherish forever.

Cannot recommend Hannah enough.

A great partner for our special day

Hannah has been a great partner during our special day. She was so professional, thorough and always made sure we were enjoying our day as oppose to pose for pictures. This way she made sure she could catch some real and genuine moments which we are very grateful for. Thank you, Hannah! :)
