Fine Art Reportage Bristol Wedding Photographer - Olivier Burnside

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I’m Olivier Burnside, a Fine Art Reportage Bristol Wedding Photographer also covering Somerset, Gloucestershire, Cardiff and South Wales, the rest of the UK and even destination weddings. I’ve always been naturally creative. Ten years ago, what was my biggest artistic passion also became my career when I left the corporate world behind to photograph weddings. I will never forget how nervous I was before the first wedding I covered and still get butterflies before each one now, well over a hundred weddings later. Experience brings the benefit of understanding the dynamic of a wedding day and knowing how to manage all of the conditions that the UK weather (for better, and worse!) Experience also allows a photographer to develop a style and it’s that above everything else that you’re paying for.

"We just want to say that the photographs that you took are absolutely stunning. Olivier captured our day perfectly and unobtrusively which is exactly what we wanted"

“I want to tell you is how much of a pleasure Olivier is to work with. He’ll be as discreet or involved as you wish, he doesn’t have his ‘own agenda’ and is really just like having another friend share in your day. He’s such a gem, a treasure and a pleasure."

"We met other photographers but no one made us feel as comfortable and relaxed as Olivier did.  Looking at the photos today still makes us feel quite emotional because Olivier didn’t just record stages of a wedding, he captured funny and touching images of us and our guests that we love."

As a reportage Bristol Wedding Photographer in Bristol, my approach is relaxed and unobtrusive throughout your wedding day. I won’t boss you around, I’m too busy to get to the heart of your connection to one another and to document the moments that matter the most.

Taking some time to look through my work will probably tell you more about what I do than I can in words. You can find single images in my Portfolio and wedding day narratives in the Blog section. You can also find out more about the way I work here.

Photographing a couple’s wedding is a huge responsibility and one that means a great deal to me. I hope that you have a little time to look through my work. If it resonates with you, I would love to hear from you
