My Photography Style

If I were to describe my photography style I would call it photo-journalistic, reportage but with a hint of traditional portraiture. Over the years I have developed a passion shooting candid, natural photography of “people being people” in the real world. It is a style of photography which focuses on emotion, interaction, feeling, contemplation & context. I have learnt to adapt this candid, natural approach to my wedding photography to deliver a series of images, which can tell a story. I have invested into mentorship and training under the expert guidance of some world-class wedding photographers, who share the same vision and style as I & have adopted & learnt from their own experiences to continuously push myself to to excel.


My Approach to Weddings

It is my job during the wedding to find the moments that will resonate for years to come. I will work tirelessly with my couples & their guests to ensure that the essence & genuine feelings of the day are not forgotten. My approach to weddings is one in which I aim to be as least intrusive to the ceremony & its moments as possible. This is not to say that I won’t offer direction when needed, especially during formal & informal group shots.  I pay particular attention to composition & emotion when creating imagery, so that I can  put the subject into a relevent-context & so that the photo, on its own merit,  can tell a story that evokes  feeling & thus drawing the viewer into the story.

My Approach to Photoshoots

My pre-wedding engagement shoots are fun, relaxed and memorable. I like to shoot these sessions in a casual style & I look for environments and interactions that reflect everyday situations; be it a stroll in the park or a day out in town. If you want to have a more unique photoshoot, then I am happy to work with you, on a concept that highlight your personality. If you wish for a more formal session, then I would be happy adapt more traditional romatic poses & direct them in a way that gives them a more natural & candid look.


A trip down memory lane...

Here is an old photo of my dad (left) & bapa (right) proudly posing inside a camera shop in Mombasa, Kenya, back in the late 1960s. It was a big deal when they brought their first film SLR camera as then it was considered a huge investment... this camera was later passed down to me when I was 12 years old.

Thus, my love for photography began almost 2 decades ago, when I permanently borrowed my old man’s Pentax SLR. I immediately got hooked to the art of creating imagery & I used to get through film quicker than they could make them. However, owning such an impressive camera at such a young age had its risks & inevitably my first SLR camera saw its last days whilst on a safari back in 2004 ...  & that was that!

I saved up & in 2007 brought myself a new professional camera - this time I went digital. I immediately got back to doing what I love the most.  Around this same time, I began to explore & deepen my spirituality. The two naturally complimented each other & as I narrated through imagery, feelings of devotional & spiritual culture. I quickly discovered & developed a specific style within photography & I began to relish any opportunity to capture the human experience in the most real & convincing way that I could.

Fast forward a couple of years & with the support of family & friends, I took the next big step in my life & invested into my dream; 2009 was the year in which I turned a hobby into my bread & butter - the year Soulphotography was inspired.  Since 2009, I have been commissioned to document 100s of weddings & events both here in the UK & abroad; including Kenya, Belgium, France, India, USA & Mexico.
