About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2020

Last update: May 2024

Documentary storytelling meets Natural portraiture. Yes, you can have both.

Hello, I am Kent-based wedding photographer living in Whitstable. I specialise in a documentary/reportage style of photography, which means I focus on capturing real, honest, raw emotion throughout your whole wedding day. I do not believe a wedding should be one long photoshoot! It should be celebrated with festivity and excitement. Memories will be created and then re-lived through photography, that is why it is so important to remember the day just how it was!

Over the 9 years of being a full-time wedding photographer and the 200+ weddings I have shot, my photography style has been described by clients and guests as relaxed, candid, unobtrusive, genuine and real. I have been told many times I am like a ninja with a camera, as I capture little moments that nobody even realised I was paying attention to.

I cover weddings across the whole of the UK. But most of my weddings are shot in Kent and the Southeast, including Whitstable, Canterbury, Maidstone, Ashford, Tunbridge Wells, London, and pretty much everywhere. If you are marrying further afield, please get in touch, and I can send you my destination pricing.

Services offered

My pricing for wedding photography ranges from £850 - £3200, with the majority of my couples booking me for a full-day coverage package for roughly £1950. I generally have 4 wedding photography packages. Up-to-date pricing can be found on my website, but I find roughly 40% of my couples require a bespoke pricing package, so please drop me an email with your wedding plans and requirements.

My most popular package is a full day of coverage, starting with the morning preparation and going all the way through to just after the first dance. The package price can be reduced if your wedding is a shorter celebration requiring fewer working hours.

All wedding packages will include.

  • Complimentary consultation to discuss your wedding with me.
  • A photographer with over 200+ weddings to draw knowledge from in all aspects of your wedding planning.
  • Roughly 400 high-resolution images from your wedding day
  • A password-protected online gallery uploaded 4 weeks after your wedding day
  • A USB with the hi-resolution photographs delivered to you within 4 weeks of your wedding day
  • Unlimited personal usage of the photographs

Optional Extras

Just Amazing

Scott was incredible on our wedding day, I’m not one for having my photo taken but he made us feel so relaxed and just made the whole experience fun. Our friend and family all commented on how good Scott was and how he just slotted into the wedding.

I can’t recommend Scott enough, he bring more than just being a photographer at your wedding. We had a sneak peak of our photo the next the day which was so special.

Fantastic Wedding Photographer

Scott is fantastic to work with, very down to earth and makes you feel very relaxed about everything being under control for the big day! We had our wedding at Marleybrook House and Scott was recommended to us by them and we was not disappointed. Our photos come out outstanding and our venue had a lot of extra parts that needed photos and Scott was everywhere making this happen! Very nice guy and we both found having Scott there handy for those nervous moments of the day!

Amazing photographer - 10/10

Scott is truly excellent. He really captured our day in its entirety, and also made us both feel completely at ease in front of the camera (which is a feat in itself!). All of our guests loved him and the pictures, and we also had his photo booth which was hilarious fun - I suspect he'll be getting a lot of requests from our guests for their own weddings! We couldn't have asked for more, and also the turn around on editing was unbelievably quick. We had an engagement shoot in our package beforehand, and Scott had been to the location ahead of time to scout out the best shots, then took us around - he is amazing at finding the best angles, and puts so much time into making sure that he makes the most of his surroundings. He's also really nice and fun to hang out with, so a real all rounder! If you are deciding between some options, do not hesitate in booking with Scott - trust us, you will not regret it!

Best decision we made!

Choosing Scott to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning! Right from the outset he was incredibly helpful and friendly, with appointments easy to book online and the opportunity for Zoom calls at times to suit us. Out of all of our wedding suppliers he was by far the most efficient and professional, answering emails very quickly, which gave us confidence that we were in safe hands! There were a variety of packages available for us, so we could have the right level of coverage during the day to suit us, and to fit our budget. We also opted for the Engagement shoot which was a fantastic idea and very much recommended - not only did we get some great pictures (Scott went to the trouble to ascertain the exact day/time to go to Whitstable beach when sunset and low-tide aligned), but it was a great way to meet him and see him at work ahead of the day. On the wedding day the photos never 'got in the way' with the flow of the day: - most of his photos are candid, capturing the natural moments, rather than being staged (although we also did a few 'formal' photos), yet they still managed to capture everyone (and the venue itself) looking their best! The colours and the lighting were amazing. Everyone commented not only on what great photos he produced, but also what a lovely guy he is, who was able to fit in and chat with everyone! Afterwards, the photos came in a handy hi-res USB for us, and an online gallery for our guests, from which it was incredibly easy to order prints/framed pictures/share on social media etc. The quality of these products is amazing! Scott also helped us design our beautiful wedding album, arranging the pictures himself with his photographer's eye, and again all in a very easy-to-use online format.

We highly recommend Scott for your wedding day - you will not be disappointed!

Brilliant!

Scott was amazing, he captured our whole day brilliantly (he just seemed to know where to be and when) and we didn’t need to spend mass amounts of time posing for photos which is what we didn’t want! Everyone commented on how good he was. Would highly recommend!

Scott added to the day in so many ways

Scott was everything we hoped for and more on our wedding day. His flexible and fun personality meant that nothing was too much and he had so many ideas for beautiful and unique shots. We got married at the beach and Scott managed to capture the magic of the British seaside with seagulls and all, while also framing the day with the most beautiful sunset - leaving us with a broad range of photos which make us laugh and take our breath away. Everyone was raving about Scott on the day - asking how we found him etc because he was just so lovely and everyone was blown away by the way he joined in with all the madness - from the carousel to the silent disco. In the run up and following the wedding, Scott’s communication was clear and regular which meant we never had to worry about the choice we had made. The photos were stunning and when we look back at candid photos from guests and see Scott in them we smile and still talk about how fab he is. We would highly recommend Scott to anyone getting married in Kent!

Amazing wedding photographer!

We found Scott by chance just doing a Google search for wedding photographers in Kent. We immediately liked Scott’s style of photography, it was exactly what we were looking for and we we’re not disappointed! Our photos turned out even more amazing than we thought! Scott was great on the day, most of the time we didn’t even know he was there. One of our big things was that we didn’t want to be taken off for hours having photos taken and not spending time with our guests. Anytime we did go for photos Scott didn’t keep us long at all and got some amazing shots! I also had a bit of a dress malfunction and Scott had some safety pins to help with the situation. Scott made us feel really comfortable and we are so glad we chose him to capture our special day as he captured it perfectly! Scott sent us a sneak peak of our photos a couple of days after the wedding and from these we just knew we were going to love them all. We are still trying to decide on which ones to print! We would recommend Scott to anyone and would 100% use him again.

SO happy with the service and the photos!!!

Scott did the photography for our wedding at the Old Kent Barn back in June 2022 and we are SO happy with everything he did for us! From our first zoom meeting with him until the day itself, he was always there to support and answer our many questions. On the day, he made us feel so at ease as he knew exactly where to be. Neither of us like our photo being taken but so often, we didn't even realise he was snapping photos!

The photos themselves are beautiful. Scott is amazing at getting action shots that make it so much easier to remember the day. From family members' first reactions to the wedding dress, to guests downing bottles of wine, Scott was able to capture the lot. The couple photos were stunning and Scott knew exactly where to go and which photos to attempt.

We cannot recommend Scott enough and are so grateful for the part he played in such a perfect day!

Best photographer ever!

Scott what can I say… you were outstanding from start to finish, so calm, relaxed and exactly what we were looking for in someone to capture our special day. You went above and beyond to capture stunning natural photos, often when we didn’t even realise you were taking them! If you are looking for a photographer who is fun, friendly and takes amazing in the moment shots, this is your man. He even helped me to hook up my bustle when the bridesmaids couldn’t! Highly recommend, thank you again Scott for capturing our day so perfectly.

Amazing - highly recommend!

Scott has been amazing - start to finish! When we first met him online, he was professional and friendly. Throughout the booking process, he has always been very efficient at responding to emails and keeping us updated.

We met Scott for a trial shoot, as my now husband and I aren’t very comfortable in front of a camera. Scott was really friendly and gave us some direction/ideas but made it all feel really natural which resulted in some great shots! I also caught him taking a sneaky few when we weren’t looking, which again is something I really appreciate as I don’t like posed photos.

On the day of the wedding Scott was again great! He was helping out with the preparation, knew when to get out of the way when us girls were flapping to get ready and again just seamlessly fitted in and didn’t make anyone feel awkward. Some guests even asked me how I knew him and assumed he was a friend.

His pictures are amazing and have really captured the spirit of the day and all the little details that other people would miss. His photo booth also went down very well and we have some amazing photos from this too! We got the photos in a timely manner (just longer than a week) after the wedding, which is ideal as everyone is eager to see them.

Would highly recommend! Thanks so much Scott!

STOP! Look no further for your photographer

What can we say about Scott that has not already been said??
Scott was amazing from first quoting and meeting to after the wedding and more. Both myself and my wife were not keen on having cameras pointed at us and being dragged everywhere for pictures on our special day which was one of the best things about Scott, it was like having a friend around (when you knew he was there, often you had no idea) He made us feel so relaxed and at ease. He knew our venue well so knew all the best places to capture shots we had spoken about, he is very creative and also open to ideas, including playground pirate ship photos and pumpkin head brides (yes those really happened!) All of our guests commented on how lovely Scott was and how friendly he is, not pushy to have photos like some photographers can be.
Scott captured everything about our day perfectly and we could not be happier with our decision to ask Scott to capture our day. The pictures and edits are second to none and we can't stop looking at them.
If you are looking for a photographer, please do not look any further, it will be the best decision you make booking Scott!!
Thank you so much Scott, love Mrs and Mrs Picton-Owen
