Olivier Burnside, Wedding Photographer – About Me

Photographic styles do differ.  When choosing a photographer, you’re buying into the way in which they see and represent the story of your wedding day.  I love observing people in their interactions and environments and weddings are a perfect opportunity.

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.

I believe your wedding photos should be beautiful, natural and authentic.  My style combines documentary/reportage coverage with a fine art approach to the couple images.  I have photographed many weddings in all the seasons and conditions and look for the most interesting light to create stunning couple images.

Every wedding and every couple is different.  I believe that your wedding should be a reflection of you and try to capture as much of that essence as I can.  I never forget what a privilege it is to photograph the most defining day in a couple’s relationship.  It 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 very fortunate to have worked with many amazing people in many beautiful places.  I’m based in Bristol with my young family but will happily go anywhere, near or far, to cover a wedding.

If my work resonates with you, I would love to hear from you.  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
