Documentary Wedding Photographer
I’m Josh, a relaxed Documentary Wedding Photographer. Creating photographs has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I feel that I owe some of my most memorable experiences to my pursuit of great images. It has encouraged me to visit some incredible destinations and meet inspirational people that I otherwise would not have had a chance to interact with. Although I have been serious about photography since my teens, it wasn’t until I relocated to the Philippines that I developed my passion for documentary and street photography. The streets of Southeast Asia are where I honed my craft and learnt to see as a Documentary Wedding Photographer.
After spending five years travelling in and around the Philippines with my camera, I moved back to England and now live in Wokingham with my wife, Shishi and my beautiful two-year-old daughter, Sophie. I have found working as a Documentary Wedding Photographer to be the ideal fit for me. A wedding is a perfect occasion where I can apply my unobtrusive documentary style to capturing special moments and emotions from one of the most important days in a person’s life.
My aim is always to connect with the couples I work with and understand the details that will make their day unique and special to them. I am passionate about documenting the events of the wedding as they unfold naturally and believe the candid shots of loved ones just being themselves will evoke a more genuine emotion in years to come.
Although I consider myself a documentary wedding photographer at the core, I always find time to spend with the newlyweds to produce some intimate and unique couples portraits that can make beautiful prints or a full-page spread in a wedding album. I aim for perfection in my work which of course is very subjective in any art form. My measure of success has and will always be the couple’s reaction when I deliver their images. I feel very fortunate to work as a Berkshire wedding photographer. No other job would give me the joy I get knowing a couple are genuinely touched by the images I deliver, and I keep this in mind throughout every wedding I shoot.
I am always happy when I’m on the beach, and Krabi Island, Ao Nang and Pranang Beach are so beautiful Shishi (my wife) had to drag me away kicking and screaming when it was time to leave for our flight back to Bangkok
On our recent trip to the Philippines, we decided to head into the provincial area where my wife had grown up and spend a couple of days exploring. I can’t get enough of travelling in the rural areas of the Philippines.
It was my wife’s birthday, my mother was in the country and available as a babysitter, and we hadn’t done anything remotely resembling a date for over a year. I believe we were very much due to a trip to Venice
