"As a bride organising a wedding thousand of miles away without an event planner I found the process hard. I even managed to book Charlotte for the wrong day! I didn’t want to look for another photographer as I loved her work."Demi & Joe
I live in Lagos in the beautiful Algarve with my Husband, baby girl, 5 dogs and 2 pigs. I dance like no one's watching (Even when everyone really, really is), I have cuddle control issues around dogs, and I commit myself 1000% to making every couple's wedding that I photography the most joyous, beautiful and oftern hilarious experience possible.
For some people, landscapes and nature inspire them to take photos. For me it’s people. The people I hold dearest to me are my family; My husband, Tom, and my baby girl Bam Bam. I love seeing their interactions with one another; the way they smile, laugh and play together. Because of my love for photographing people, documentary wedding photography was a natural fit for me.
Weddings are amazing celebrations where family and friends come together. Weddings are full of fun, creativity and laughter. I see my role as capturing moments from the day as they unfold, telling the story of what actually happens.
Tom and I got married in 2016 and some of our favourite images from our wedding day were when we were unaware of the camera and were free to be ourselves. I want to give couples these kind of photographs that tell the story of their wedding day. Pictures they’ll be able to enjoy for decades to come.
I am a Web Developer by profession, passionate about photography. I am the founder of CodeShore Ltd - Digital agency where I work as a Managing Director as well as "Full-Stack" Web Developer with more than 15 years of experience creating bespoke web solutions. My passion for photography was born during my childhood when my father taught me to use analog cameras. I remember taking photos for weeks and immersing myself in the photographic processing in the darkroom. After having fun with several digital compact cameras over the number of years I decided in 2006 to put my hands on Digital SLRs and I ended up building my Canon collection. Photography is now my second main job. I am lucky to live in the Algarve with my wife, two babies and a dog.
I always prefer to use natural light, simplicity, and instinct to capture the raw beauty and spontaneousness of a situation. My style is a combination of fine art and documentary-style photography. Most of the time I would ask you both NOT to look at the camera. Each image captures an emotion, tells a story, or portrays a mood. I don’t just focus on the bride and groom the entire day; instead, I try to capture all the little moments that tend to get unnoticed.
I’m Oliver, also know as Ollie. I was born and raised in the south of Spain where I spent most of my teenage years. I then went to film school in London so I could pursue a career as a camera operator. After graduating from film school in 2008, I decided to stay based in London mainly working with fashion houses, events and advertising. In 2016, I decided it was time for a change of lifestyle, so I packed up my belongings and relocated from London to Lagos.
The interaction between people fascinates me and is something I love to capture. Weddings seem to be a melting pot of emotions and having the privilege of documenting this for my clients is something I never take for granted. I class myself as a specialist documentary wedding filmmaker who will capture your wedding day in an artistic, candid and non intrusive manner. I love getting to know each and every one of my clients, and my approach as your videographer is to capture natural moments as the happen. Nothing contrived, just honest and sincere moments that will tell a story of how brilliant your wedding was.
