SMP Wedding Photographer | Sussex | Reportage Photography

Welcome to SMP Weddings, the home of reportage wedding photography and photojournalism in Sussex.

As a documentary wedding photographer, I place intimate story telling at the heart of every wedding I shoot - the story, the people, the setting, the detail, the pride, the joy, the laughter, the love.

Wedding photography to me is all about creating a timeless set of images which will take you right back to the moment. The aim is to create images which are informal yet intensely atmospheric, with an intimacy that can only be created through a reportage style.

My photojournalistic approach to wedding photography involves listening and watching what’s happening around me without ever intervening or directing; I operate with discretion, remaining unobtrusive at all times. I photograph the day as it happens, anticipating moments and always looking for an interesting perspective.

Documentary photography is all about clever observations, decisive moments and crafting beautiful stories; I can't think of any other subject that I would rather document. I consider it a huge privilege to be invited into people’s worlds on a life changing day, a day when all the people they love most in the world are all in one place to celebrate two people finding each other.

I believe in marriage, I believe in making a promise to one other person, and that a wedding day can come in any form. Each wedding is unique and every couple is different, and from that stems limitless opportunities for creative storytelling and interesting observations. I genuinely consider myself lucky that I absolutely love what I do.

About Me

Some Kind Words

  • Ruth and Chris

    “We’re lost for words, the photos are AMAZING. Absolutely everything we hoped they would be and more. It really does capture the day as we remember it, plus fills in all those moments we missed (which mainly seems to be people laughing their socks off!).
    We’ve only looked through a couple of times, but there are already a few firm favourites and we will be looking at them on a daily basis for the next few weeks (months). Now we have the very difficult job of picking out some for our book!
    We can’t say thank you enough for doing such a fantastic job and we will of course be recommending you to anyone and everyone we know getting married!
    We can’t wait to get creating our book and plastering our walls with fabulous prints!”
