Hello, I’m Allister and I create a particularly personal style of documentary wedding and portrait photography.By working with me you won’t be made to pose, jump, dance, twirl or otherwise play up to the camera. You focus on relaxing and I'll make the timeless and authentic images.I’ve been a professional documentary wedding photographer since 2004, photographing hundreds of weddings and portrait commissions internationally; my style has developed into a distinct form of natural and honest coverage.I tend to work with available light only and avoid using artificial light, from a flash for instance. This allows me to faithfully photograph the atmosphere of an event and occasion.It also gives my style a strong and consistent look, wherever the wedding or portrait shoot takes place.
Allister was excellent from beginning to end. Communicating with him was very straightforward and he understood what we were after quite quickly. We really liked his documentary style and artistic flair.
On the day, he was the perfect gentleman and a calming presence throughout. He spent most of the time in the background.
The images themselves are fantastic and all the big moments were captured beautifully.
If you don't want to pose on your wedding day and just enjoy it with natural pictures as an end result, I would not hesitate to recommend Allister. He's a class act.
We can't recommend Allister enough! He is incredibly professional and has an amazing eye when it comes to capturing the true essence of the moment. When we met, he was very friendly and easy to talk to.
Throughout the day, we hardly noticed him, but he somehow managed to get the most perfect shots.
If you want documentary-style photos for your wedding, absolutely chose Allister!

I produce natural wedding photography. AKA reportage, documentary, photojournalism.
It depends on the circumstances. I've been a photographer for many years so a lot off my technique stems from traditional wedding photography. That said, I know how to take advantage of modern cameras, for instance high iso capabilities, faster autofocus, etc.
