Full Description
I'm a calm and cheerful reportage photographer based in Islington, north London. I've been in business since 2002 and take your peace of mind very seriously. I believe people look lovely when they're in the moment, being themselves. I shoot silently and reserve directions for the formal groups. For the rest of the day, I'm a photo-ninja!

The best wedding photographer in London
I can't say enough about Harry's brilliance. He has a real eye for capturing beautiful moments beautifully, and the photographs he took & shared of our wedding are testament to his talent. Whilst he is brilliant and going undetected throughout the event, he is also a thoroughly warm and reassuring presence when directing, cajoling, etc. We would recommend him without hesitation, and he is top of our list for any future photography needs.
Response from the supplier
Thanks so much for choosing me Jonny & Rebecca! Really heartening to read this.

Harry was such a genial, fun & considerate person
Harry was such a genial, fun, and considerate person to share our day with. He took wonderful photos, not posed shots (well a few of these) but photos that tell the story of the day beautifully.

Our guests couldn't stop raving about you
It's great to see someone working who thoroughly enjoys their craft! When we started looking for a photographer for our wedding, it was most important to us that they have the ability to capture special, human moments throughout the day, and you have certainly done that, and more! We are so pleased, and our guests couldn't stop raving about you. Thank you again, and for anyone considering his services - stop looking and choose Harry. He's phenomenal.

Harry was wonderful every step of the way
Harry was wonderful every step of the way - and Covid delayed us by 2 years, so it was a very long way! The pictures are amazing and we’re delighted.

His use of light is outstanding
Harry is a fantastic photographer and we couldn't be happier with our wedding pictures. We are blown away with them and he has done such a great job at capturing the day with excellent coverage of all our guests. His use of light is outstanding and his manner is so war, professional and subtle he was a pleasure to have at our wedding and also very helpful organising people in a non-pushy way.

Couldn't recommend him more
We are so happy we chose Harry to be our wedding photographer. We really liked him when we met him in advance of the wedding and he listened to all our ideas and what we wanted to capture. On the day, he was fantastic - we felt very relaxed around him, he adapted to last minute changes with ease and he also uses a camera without a clicking sound so we didn't feel we were being photographed - particularly good for the candid photos. We are delighted with how the photos have come out...

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Reputation.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Plan to relax on the day and allow time buffers for comfort.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meet in London for a coffee or something stronger - your choice. We can have a natter about your plans, look at some albums. If you like, book me and pay a £350 deposit. Around a month before I'll be back in touch to go through my list of questions and produce my photo schedule for your wedding. Afterwards, I'll send your some previews within a week followed by the full gallery and invoice, usually within 3-6 weeks.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

While I specialise in reportage photography, I always recommend taking 10 minutes of quiet time to do some portraits with the photographer. I keep things relaxed and fun so it's worth doing just to catch your breath. Plus you get some lovely pictures for the mantelpiece!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Brollies and a sense of humour!

Describe how you got into photography.

Aged 17, my art teacher gave me £50 and 5 rolls of film to photograph his daughter's wedding the next day!
