100% candid & unobtrusive wedding photography because you’ve got better things to enjoy on your wedding day.
I’m a street photographer who shoots weddings, but always as a street photographer!
I’m not your traditional kind of wedding photographer. I’m a street photographer who shoots weddings. It’s a subtle but big difference. So I’ll document your wedding as it really is. Authentic, genuine and unobtrusive.
No directing. No staging. No interference. 100% relaxed and stress-free. Which is great if you’re the kind of couple who hates being in front of the camera or don’t want all the hassle of being posed.
So you can forget all about me and simply celebrate your big day as you should…with your friends and family.
Real, emotional & quirky moments
You want wedding photography that’s real and unique to you. Wedding photography that captures your actual wedding story with minimum fuss and little intrusion.
The real moments, the genuine emotions and all the quirky unpredictable fun of your day without it ever being forced or staged.
International award-winning street photographer
Hi, I’m Darren and I’m an award-winning international street photographer who shoots award-winning wedding photography.
It means I bring something different to your wedding photography. A different perspective, unlike other more traditional wedding photographers. I also come with a different mindset and approach.
I blend in, I won’t interfere and I certainly won’t direct. So you get wedding photography that’s authentic and unique to you. No cheese. No cliche. No fuss. And definitely NO posed portraits or group shots! It’s all 100% completely candid. So no need to worry about being in front of the camera!
This is the part where I’m meant to tell you how I sound all “cool” and “awesome” – but no I don’t undertake extreme sports, climb mountains or backpack around Asia for 6 months each year.
Instead, I’m just a everyday bloke living in South London with my partner Kirsten and our little Shorkie dog called Buddy.
What you will get from me is a sense of humour, an easy-going fun nature and your mum will definitely love me.
Of course, it goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) that I have a complete passion for and obsession with photography going back to my teens (yes I’m in my 50s now.) As well as being an award-winning candid street photographer, I’m a freelance photojournalist shootIng work for Getty Images and other libraries.
I did once manage to upset PM Boris Johnson at a press photo shoot, and Channel 4 journalist Jon Snow said of me, “not just a good wedding photographer but a good footballer too!”
I cover London, Surrey, the whole of the U.K. and destination weddings further afield. So get in touch now to discuss your wedding plans. I’ll even buy you a beer or a cappuccino too!

Some Kind Words
“Darren has a rare ability to capture not just special moments and the underlying stories but to see ones’ soul, that rare emotional reaction and convey it as is. We couldn’t have chosen better. He was so much fun to work with, from the moment we got in touch with him over an email – personable, friendly and down to earth. The wedding pictures are not only beautiful, reliving those rare and special times, but a work of art. They should be displayed in an exhibition. A true artist.” — Arad & Brian

“Darren documented our wedding in May 2018 and we are still looking back and so very happy we chose him! The photos themselves are amazing and completely suit our style. We also liked his non-intrusive style of documenting the day and he managed to make us so comfortable in front of the camera. We would absolutely, 100% recommend Darren!” — Anne & Alex
Watch Me In Action At A Real Wedding
The business name may have changed, but here I am in action at a real wedding down near Worthing in West Sussex.
You’re a relaxed and carefree couple with a heightened sense of fun;
You see your wedding day as a great big celebration to be documented in all it’s quirky awesomeness;
You don’t do fake or cheesy and you see rules and traditions are there to broken;
You don’t want you or your guests directing, being bossed around or having to be posed for hundreds of group shots and portraits.
You appreciate photography as an art form rather than just something on a wedding magazine list to be ticked off.
