About

Hi there! I'm Kristian, a photographer that loves to capture real, authentic moments. I've been photographing weddings since 2010, and I've managed to capture all kinds of weddings - micro, humanist, Jewish, Indian, church, cathedral, rooftop, warehouse, tipi, country house....I could go on and on, but you get the picture! But if I'm honest it's not about the location - it's always been about the people.

And that's my focus on your wedding day. To capture the relationships you have with your family and friends, and their relationship to you and those that are in attendance.

For more information about my approach and my full range of coverage options, please do get in touch, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Absolutely brilliant

Kristian and his colleague were A on our wedding day in Brighton. This was a Jewish wedding and we have a big family so there were lots of potential challenges for Kristian (e.g. traditional Jewish dancing and lots of family photos) but Kristian dealt with both brilliantly. We got through all the family pictures we requested. He was also always in the mixer during the traditional dancing, which can get very boisterous! Kristian was so patient and friendly and he even made it to the after party which went on until 2am! We recently received the pictures (and at the date promised by Kristian) and they look fantastic. Kristian uses natural light rather than a flash and so the quality is amazing. He captures natural moments really well and my wife and I could not recommend him more highly. Thanks Kristian!

Thank you Kristian!

Kristian is a lovely guy who was also really professional and adaptable. We had a small, intimate wedding on NYE and he fitted in perfectly. In fact, it’s amazing that he captured so many wonderful (emotional) moments as he was so discreet, we actually forgot that he was in the room, a lot of the time! He had a positive, calming influence and we are delighted with our photos. Thank you Kristian!

We couldn't be any happier with Kristian's work

Having a top photographer to capture our day was such a high priority and we couldn't be any happier with Kristian's work.

Looking through all the photos brought so many good memories and laughs flooding back, they really did tell the story of the day.

If you want a photographer who will go unnoticed throughout your wedding but capture every special natural moment and I mean so many moments you'd think there were two photographers at your wedding, Kristian is the one.

His personality, professionalism, communication and standards are so high, you are guaranteed to be happy with your choice.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer you should just book Kristian right away

I think if you are looking for a wedding photographer with more of a documentary style and Kristian is free, you should just book him right away.

Booking was easy, interacting with him pre-wedding was easy, and he turned up on time - but hopefully any good wedding photographer will offer that. He was great on the day - lots of our guests said things to us like 'Kristian seems nice!'. He blended in, so we didn't feel like we were having our picture taken all day.

However, what really sets Kristian apart are his technical/creative photography skills. He literally creates hundreds of images that are well composed (by that I mean composed in a creative, clever way), make good use of natural light, and - most importantly - capture the emotion of the moment. This means when you look at the images you are transported back to that moment, and feel those emotions again.

Kristian is not the cheapest wedding photographer out there - and if you just want someone who will turn up on time and take a nice set of photos, then perhaps you don't need him... BUT - people are right when they say your wedding day is over in a flash and all you are left with is memories and photographs. We are so happy we paid a little bit more to have a set of images we will cherish and look at again and again.

We are so unbelievably happy with the photos that Kristian took for our wedding this Winter.

We are so unbelievably happy with the photos that Kristian took for our wedding this Winter. They are even better than we could have hoped for, and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone getting married. He is a pleasure to deal with, a total professional and someone we felt totally comfortable with on the day, as well as feeling confident that he was capturing all the best bits. The photos that we got back perfectly encapsulated the emotion and atmosphere of the day. Thanks so much Kristian! Em & Alex xx

Kristian - we can't thank you enough!

Kristian produced the most incredible photos and captured our day so beautifully. From start to finish he made the whole experience enjoyable - he was professional but also chatty and made sure my husband and I were relaxed. He's provided us with the most beautiful candid photos - and seemed to be everywhere at once! We're so grateful to him for capturing all the special moments from across the day. It's so lovely to look back and see your friends and family enjoying themselves as much as you were! He's also created a stunning photo album for us which we will cherish forever. Kristian - we can't thank you enough!

Chloe + Alasdair / Tithe Barn Wedding

I know Alasdair has already dropped you a note to say how delighted we are with the photographs from our big day but I wanted to send a note too. We have had so many amazing comments from friends and family whom we have shared the link with. You have captured the feeling of the day perfectly and lovely moments that evoke such emotion. Many have admitted to crying when they watched them - me included! I really couldn’t pick a favourite but high on the list is the photo of my two nieces skipping along on the dance floor – and of course love the photos of Ali and I, it going to be tough picking photos to go up in our flat!

Wiz + Jeremy / Garden Wedding

After having now watched the clip of shots you out together at least 50 times, I thought we should email you back to say thank you!! They are so amazing and the clip and the music is perfect. We’ve sent it to a few people who have all started getting teary when watching it. Result!!! The shots capture the day so well and the atmosphere and fun is like being there all over again. Not that you probably need it but if you ever want a testimonial, let me know as we’d be more than happy to write something for you.

Rhiannon + Theo / London Wedding

I just wanted to say how pleased Theo and I are with the photos. We’ve looked through them and they are truly amazing. They reflect the story of the day so well and really capture the emotion. You were a joy to work with on the day and you handled yourself well amongst with some of our more ‘pushy’ guests! Everything came together in the end and we couldn’t be happier with the results.

We would absolutely recommend you to any other couple looking for a wedding photographer without a second thought.

Keep up the fantastic work!

Claire + John / Oxo Tower, London

Wow, the photos are beautiful. Thank you so much for sending these over sooner than we thought. It was a lovely surprise to have them to look through at the weekend and we’re looking forward to receiving the box set.

Not only have you captured the story and spirit of the day perfectly but they are all beautiful images. We love the lighting and framing etc. We’re so pleased and couldn’t have asked for more and can’t thank you enough.

Liz + Mike / Hedingham Castle, Essex

Thank you Kristian. These are so beautiful and tell the story of our day even more perfectly than I remember it. I think we could have got married in a garden shed wearing our pyjamas and you would have made it look amazing. I have been suffering a bit from the post-wedding blues, I miss the excitement of it so much but these photos let me relive it all.

Judith + Tal / Jewish Wedding, London

Oh my word… Your photos quite literally took my breathe away and brought tears to my eyes. They are beautiful, you have captured the enormity, emotional, intensely spiritual and the sheer and utter joy of the day in the most miraculous way possible.

I must have looked through them about 20 times already, you have a truly exceptional gift not only in the output of the photo’s but you were a pleasure to have share this with us on the day.

May you only go from strength to strength.
