Wedding Photographer Paul Rogers

Priceless Wedding Photos Like These

Aren’t Staged or Posed

They’re unique, candid moments captured by an expert eye.

There’s a world of difference between pictures where people pose for the camera, and ones that capture the natural fun, drama and romance of your wedding day as it unfolds.

I’m Paul, a UK documentary wedding photographer based in London and Hertfordshire and specialising in documentary photography, also known as reportage or photojournalism. I photograph marriages across the UK and at destination weddings around The World.

I don’t pose or set up pictures – my skill is in being able to capture the natural and spontaneous moments that you can see here. It’s this kind of photography that will help transport you right back to your wedding day for many years to come, with the best wedding photography.

World class photojournalism at your wedding.

Before photographing weddings, I gained years of valuable experience as a photojournalist with The Times newspaper in London where I photographed a full range of subjects – from royalty, celebrities and world leaders to war zones and natural disasters worldwide.

As a result, I bring a unique approach to documentary style wedding photography.

I find beautiful and natural moments like all the ones you can see in the slideshow above. None of those moments are staged or posed, and they happen at every single wedding. You just need a photographer who is alert to them and can discreetly capture them for you forever.

Great storytelling photography in 49 seconds

Telling the story of a wedding day in photography takes skill and experience. It’s not just about some great portraits of the Bride and Groom. It’s the moments, the glances, the humour and the characters that make every wedding different.

In less than a minute, I’ll show you how powerful great storytelling photography can be!

What Is Documentary Wedding Photography?

Find out all about my approach as a Documentary Wedding Photographer on the Portfolio page. See examples of how Reportage photography is crucial in how I tell the story of your wedding day.

It’s much more than ‘candid pictures’ of people not looking at the camera. Photojournalism tells a story and is the most powerful way of recording a wedding day. The result is the best natural images that will evoke memories of your wedding, your friends and your family long into the next generation.

PORTFOLIO

From Previous Clients

Holly and Andrew

“I can’t recommend Paul highly enough – we are over the moon with our photos. Having seen examples of Paul’s work I had high expectations, and he didn’t disappoint! He and David captured our day perfectly – I’m not sure how they managed to get such amazing shots, especially given that we barely noticed them the whole day! Very professional from start to finish and incredibly talented – if you’re looking for a documentary wedding photographer, I doubt you’ll find a better one!”

Ros and Miles

“Paul’s beautiful photography style and documentary approach gives his clients much more than a static set of images from their wedding. It’s a service that tells a story in every single image – even now when I look back through the photos, I still find myself spotting some little quirk, or gesture or detail that I’d not seen before. This makes our wedding photos full of energy and life, and we’ll be enjoying them for years!” 

Katherine and Richard

“Paul photographed our wedding beautifully and candidly – exactly as we wanted. The photos were natural and he blended in so we barely noticed he was there. Something I really appreciated as a camera shy bride! All our family and friends commented on how wonderful, different and unique the photos are. We love them! We highly recommend Paul, thank you for making the day as relaxed and fun as we wanted!”

Why Book a Wedding Photojournalist?

Wedding Photographer Paul RogersIt’s the 20 years experience working as a news photojournalist for The Times newspaper that brings a unique quality to my wedding photography.

I’ve had 14 seconds to make a portrait with the President of Columbia, been shot at in Iraq and worked under cover in North Korea and Burma.

That was pretty exciting! But it’s capturing the kind of moments you see here for my clients that drives me now. Learn more about my journey here, and watch an interview with me that goes some way to explain how my former career sets my work among the top wedding photographers.

My work has appeared on Junebug Weddings, won awards at the WPJA, Fearless Photographers and the Best of Wedding Photography.
