Wedding Photographer Bristol

I’m Olivier Burnside, Wedding Photographer – About Me

I qualified and worked as a lawyer in Bristol, but spent a great deal of my spare time with a camera in my hand.  I was delighted that what started as a passion quickly developed into a career.  Almost ten years on, it’s a decision that I am still grateful for.

I’m naturally quite laid back, so take more of a documentary than directorial approach.  Being relaxed tends to put people at ease, which makes for more natural coverage. Photographic styles do differ.  When choosing a photographer, you’re paying for the way in which they see and represent the story of your wedding day.

My style is characterised by combining reportage coverage with creating fine art couple images.  This means that I aim to tell most of the story authentically and artistically through candid documentary images, but will also look for the most interesting light to create stunning couple images.

Every wedding and every couple is different.  I’m very fortunate to have worked with many amazing people in many beautiful places. Travel is a big part of what I do and I will happily go anywhere to cover a wedding. 

I never forget what a privilege it is to photograph the most defining day in a couple’s relationship.  It’s what inspires me to continue to find new ways of being creative in capturing the love and emotion that the day is there to celebrate.

I’m experienced enough to be able to enjoy being at your wedding, I very much hope that you will feel the same! If my work resonates with you, I would love to hear from you, so please drop me a line through my contact form to find out if I’m available.  I’d love to have a coffee and a chat about your plans
