Relaxed Documentary Wedding Photography by Liam Keown

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’m Liam Keown, a freelance wedding photographer from Leicester. I’ve been lucky enough to do this incredible job for over ten years now and I can honestly say I still absolutely love it!

I'm based in the Midlands but I shoot weddings all over the UK and internationally, from Northumberland to Bali and a lot of incredible locations in between, so if you’re not getting hitched in Birmingham - don’t worry, I’m more than happy to travel to get to your perfect spot.

Choosing the right person to capture your special day is a big decision, and I know there are a lot of us out there to pick from. Hopefully, my portfolio will make the decision for you, but to make it easier to decide if I’m the right photographer for you, here’s a bit about me and how I like to approach the job.

I’ve always loved shooting people, the 500 Facebook albums of uni nights out can vouch for that. It’s always been about the candid moments, the fly-on-the-wall party shots and the “I can’t remember you taking that!” snaps.

I have a relaxed, unobtrusive approach to wedding photography, focused on capturing the energy and vitality of the occasion without getting in the way, I’m there to document all that magic, not to boss you about and line you up for a school photo… unless you want me to.

I like to approach every wedding differently and I like to get to know my couples beforehand as much as possible. We’re all different and every wedding has its own unique details, it’s important to make sure we’ve got the same vision.

When you book me for your wedding, we get to know each other long before the big day and I’m on hand to chat over any details, venue visits, engagement shoots and any other ways I can help. I know there’s a lot to deal with, so my aim is to make sure I’m one thing you don't need to stress about.

Outstanding photographer!

We were recommended Liam through a friend of ours, and we could not be more grateful to that friend. Since we started to plan our wedding in 2018, a lot has changed. We have booked and had to cancel/postpone our wedding, in various venues over the past 2 years. We faced a number of challenges (as many did whilst planning their wedding in the midst of a pandemic) but the one supplier that has been with us from day one, until the final moments of our wedding day was Liam. He has been so professional, personable and understanding throughout the process. He completely surpassed what we would ever expect of a photographer. He was so understanding and accommodating when covid implications changed our engagement shoot plans. Liam took time to get to know us, in circumstances where it was very difficult to do so, he was reassuring and displayed a positive outlook, which helped us during the difficult moments, and all this was before we had even met. On the day of our engagement shoot, Liam helped us to feel comfortable in front of the camera, and this allowed us to get an idea of what to expect on the day, he helped to put us at ease and took a genuine interest in us.
On the day of our wedding Liam was just excellent, but we didn’t realise quite how excellent until we saw the photos. Liam captures the moments you didn’t see, but wish you did. His photos allow us to relive the day over and over again. His mind works in wonderful ways, and we were absolutely blown away with what we received from him. He really listened to what we wanted, and I think his style lent itself well to that too. Our guests all commented on how hard he worked and how well he fit in and engaged with everyone there. The entire experience of planning as well as our wedding day would not have been the same without Liam. We honestly could not recommend him enough. There is nobody better we could trust to capture us, our guests and our day the way Liam did.

If you're thinking about having him as your wedding photographer just do it, you will not regret it!

Liam is absolutely amazing! I can't put into words how incredible our wedding photos are but I'll try.

He told the entire story of our wedding day, to the point where our friends who couldn't make it felt like they were actually there just by looking through the album. He captured every detail perfectly and he also captured moments I hadn't even noticed myself on the day. We're not used to being in front of a camera and he made us feel at ease and so relaxed.

Hiring Liam was the best decision we made for our wedding day and we can't wait to find a reason to hire him again in the future. We would recommend him to anyone!
Thank you so much Liam!

Captured the story of our day perfectly

Liam was so easy to work with in the run up to our wedding. With his guidance we managed to outline a clear plan for the day, discussing our preferred style and what worked for our budget. We were really keen to keep to a relaxed and documentary style rather than more formal, staged pictures. Liam happily obliged. We decided to go for the option of an assistant to cover all angles and this made sure no special moments were missed. A few weeks after the wedding when the photos came through we were blown away. The online portfolio makes it so easy to download individual images (perfect for anniversary instagram posts!) and from time to time we will revisit the full slideshow almost five years later to relive the day. I couldn't recommend Tying the Knot higher as a service. They captured the story of our wedding day perfectly.

Can't recommend enough!

Picking Liam to photograph our day was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We were astounded by his ability to capture such beautiful moments in a relaxed and natural way, and the style of the photographs we received were the perfect mix of sharp, timeless and effortlessly cool. Never did we feel pressured by the process, in fact his candid approach made us feel completely at home in front of the lens. Liam managed to be both completely unobtrusive and astutely observant at all times, going the extra mile for the shots he knew we would love. We would recommend him one hundred times over.

Amazing wedding photos

'We chose Liam to be our photographer at our wedding this year on May 20th. A brilliant choice! Every moment captured brilliantly with great professionalism.
We had loads of communication in the run up to the wedding with all the details of who we wanted pictures of and when sorted out. He gave us ideas and solutions we wouldn’t have thought of ourselves. Liam was on time on the day, he was exactly where we agreed we wanted him at different locations at different times throughout the day. He communicated well instructing who we wanted for the photos, when and where they needed to be. It took a lot of pressure off of us.
He sent a few teaser photos whilst we waiting for the bulk of the photos to come through which was lovely. The photos arrived when he said they would and they were amazing.
Honestly, just outstanding. I could not compliment any more. We are so happy we went with Liam. You can’t redo that day and he captured it the way we wanted.

Amazing wedding photographer with a personal touch!

Highly recommend!!! We asked Liam to help us capture our big day and what an incredible job he did!! An excellent photographer, who really understands how to work around a crowd and create an album of memories that truly captures the essence of that day!! The amounts of smiling faces caught naturally in the photos alongside beautifully composed angles and shots - from the consultation at the start which Liam made the effort to come to bristol to do in person to the final photos he so beautifully edited and put together - there’s no one else we would have wanted!!

Too many amazing pictures to choose from!

We hired Liam for our wedding photography and it was the best decision we made! From start to finish he was friendly, helpful and professional. We have had loads of positive comments from our guests about how well Liam blended into the background on the day. For the couple shots the atmosphere was very relaxed which made us feel much more comfortable in front of the camera. The photos we have received back are just amazing, we are so happy to have such beautiful memories of our day and are going to struggle to decide which ones to print off! Highly recommend!

Liam is simply THE BEST!


'We hired Liam to be our wedding photographer and words cannot do justice for what an absolutely outstanding job he did. From start to finish, Liam was attentive and responsive to our messages and ideas for the day and even helped to plan our itinerary to ensure we got the best experience possible. Liam specialises in candid and un-intrusive wedding shots which was ideal given we don't particularly like being photographed or being in the spotlight. All our friends and family were unanimous in their praise for how he captured our special day. The turnaround on the album was quick and we even received a neatly packaged photo album and USB with all our snaps on there. If you want a stellar wedding photographer then look now further. Five stars and beyond ✨️’

Best in the business

From the moment we booked Liam to the delivery of the photos from our wedding day, everything about the service Liam provides is over and above what you come to expect. He planned the photos meticulously but also kept a sense of capturing moments rather than staging the photos which was exactly what we wanted. The results are fantastic and I would recommend Liam to anyone for their big day or any event in which they would want to capture special moments. He’s also a top bloke as well!

Thank you!

Liam is exactly what you want from a photographer; friendly, professional, creative, helpful and willing to go that extra mile to get the perfect picture.

He shot our engagement pictures and then our wedding and captured each moment & feeling perfectly. He manages this without ever feeling like he is intruding. He made us feel so comfortable and at ease and I cannot recommend him enough.

The pictures came out so beautifully, I cannot thank him enough... to conclude he is simply amazing, amazing, AMAZING!
