About Rafe Abrook Photography

Life is all about moments. Your wedding day will be full of them. It's my job to document these for you.

I am a Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer however I will travel the world to shoot the right wedding. If you've read this far, then some of the images above will have caught your eye. This hopefully means you like the natural, documentary style I employ . That's fabulous. What I'd like to do next is meet up with you both, and find out more about you, and tell you more about me, how I operate, and why I'm so passionate about capturing magical images for my clients.

I fell in love with wedding photography by throwing myself in the deep end a few years ago and photographing some friends weddings (at their request I should add!), while juggling a day job in the cut and thrust world of corporate sales management. I'm now a full time Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer because I love the positivity, I love the creativity, and I love my clients. 

Based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, I consider myself a documentary wedding photographer first and foremost. This means I ask my clients for full access to their day. For this to work, I need your full trust on the day. I am not a record photographer who just shoots what's happening. I take time to anticipate moments and try and perfect the composition of each shot to give you the best image possible for each situation. The results are stunning natural moments captured without you and your guests even realising it. I shoot weddings how they are, in a photo journalistic fashion, yet despite this we will shoot family group photographs and portraits because these will be important to someone in your family. 

I take immense pride from a job well done and set my own performance standards high to ensure I over-deliver on expectations. I've been trained by some of the world's best wedding photographers, because that's where I strive to be and I won't settle for just being 'good'.

I also now offer a full day's Videography in my style courtesy of long time affiliate, Michael Gallagher for only £895 for a limited time when my full day package is booked.

Let's chat real soon.

  • "Thank you so much!"
    Ally on 21 March 2019

    Choosing Rafe was the best decision we made for our wedding at Woughton House! From the moment we met Rafe, prior to our wedding day, his calm, professional manner helped us relax and put our faith in his amazing talent. Both him and his second photographer, Michael, were phenomenal throughout the day. They both went above and beyond to get the shots we wanted and many many more that are all outstanding. Rafe and Michael were both excellent from start to finish. They were there all day (well into the night!) to ensure they got fantastic dance floor photos too. Words can't express how happy we were to receive our sneak peek photographs after less than a week and were blown away by how they captured the atmosphere of our special day - the sparkler shot being one of our favourites! We would recommend Rafe for all your photography needs but especially your wedding and we can't wait to use him again in the future. Thank you so much!

  • "I would highly recommend Rafe"
    Rosie on 21 March 2019

    Rafe has done a totally fantastic job of capturing the love, laughter and happiness we had at our wedding at South Farm. He has a great eye for detail and an ability to take natural, relaxed and intimate photos which show true personality - something that was really important to us as a couple as we are not a very "posey" couple. Everything about Rafe was professional, yet informal, he was able to share his expertise and experience with us in order to get the best shots and I have to say we were blown away by the results. Since the wedding, we've had countless compliments from guests about the quality of Rafe's photos. I would highly recommend Rafe
