London Wedding Photographer

john sanders weddings london wedding photographer 1

Hi, I’m John

I am a London Wedding Photographer based in Hackney For me, it’s always been about people and light. I have been behind a camera for my entire professional life. Over ten years ago I was asked to photograph a friend’s wedding. I didn’t want to be a shouty and overbearing wedding photographer so I just floated about the wedding with my cameras. Needless to say, I loved it and my friends were thrilled with their wedding pictures. Documentary wedding photography condenses everything I love about being behind a camera: people, stories, raw emotion, plus some pretty splendid locations to boot.
