Neil Walker Photography – Sussex Wedding Photographer
“I believe that people look their best when they don’t know they’re being photographed”
Hi, I’m Neil, I’m a professional Sussex wedding photographer, I also shoot a lot of weddings in London & throughout the South East & internationally.
I see your wedding day as a chance to tell your story, naturally and without fuss. I believe it’s better told through observing you and your guests, not through a list of “essential” staged shots. Apart from some beautiful shots of the two of you and some formal group shots, I strongly believe the best way to get great photographs at your wedding is to work in the background so that people don’t know they are being photographed.
I work with the available light rather than against it, the soft filtered light on a cloudy day can be as beautiful as the light on a clear blue day if it’s used in the right way. Acting as a huge soft box, the clouds give lovely soft light that gives gorgeous skin tones, something I’m looking to maximise in your photos. Of course the clear strong light on a lovely sunny day is beautiful too! Even rainy days can be fantastic by working with the weather and not against it, particularly using the fast lenses I like.
Have a look through some recent weddings I’ve shot. You’ll hopefully find some inspiration for your own wedding! These wedding galleries will give you a really good idea of my style and use of natural light. It’s a good idea to look through lots of full wedding days as it really shows the consistency of my work, as well as the way I like to not only document your wedding day, but also capture all the little emotional moments that are so often missed. The ones that show what you were really feeling, the fleeting glances and the touches that mean so much on the day, but are forgotten moments later. I like to capture those moments so you will remember them every time you look at your wedding photographs many years later.
