Portrait Photographer South London
In addition to wedding photography, I am a portrait photographer South London and shoot portraiture for a broad range of customers – from capturing stills during important occasions to creating dynamic portrait images for professional use.
Portrait photography covers a wide scope, so it’s not solely for social media bios or corporate resumes!
Some of my portrait clients look for exceptional imagery for:
- Family events, birthdays and special occasions.
- Lifestyle portraits and candid imagery.
- Conceptual photography of couples, groups and individuals.
- Engagement portrait sessions.
Outstanding portrait photography involves lighting, technical composition, expression and location, so it’s an opportunity to capture fantastic photography that surpasses anything you can achieve with a camera phone and filter.
Please visit my Headshots Gallery for an idea of the style of my portraiture work.
Professional South London Portraits
With a range of engagement portrait services through to lifestyle sessions at your home or any location you wish, I aim to make capturing natural, beautiful portraits an enjoyable experience.
While we can achieve excellent posed head-on shots, some of the best portraits are relaxed and informal.
- Business portrait images – whether you run your own business, are launching a brand, or want to show your clients what you’re all about, a home or workplace portrait shoot will provide images that showcase your style.
- Actor’s headshots – performers and actors rely on stunning graphics to highlight their skills and talent; a great range of portrait photos can demonstrate your range and aesthetic.
- Contemporary portraits – meaningful images use styling and lighting to capture a unique picture for a portfolio, social media event or personal branding.
- Engagement portrait photography – one of the most popular packages is my engagement session, where we get together for two full hours and capture a range of you both, individually and together, to commemorate this special moment.
Quality portrait images bring your character to the fore, with professional editing carried out by myself at my London studio to deliver images that shine.
Features of my South London Portrait Photography Packages
As a South London photographer with over 20 years of experience, I am always delighted to shoot portraits, either at my studio or any location you would like to use.
Below I’ve run through the features of some of my popular packages – you can find full details and pricing information on my Prices page.
South London Engagement Photographer
Engagement portrait sessions are a lovely way to record your engagement – and can also be a chance to get to know my team and I as your wedding photographers in advance of the big day.
A pre-wedding shoot delivers a range of spectacular images and means we can play with light and style to fine-tune the approach to capturing the most extraordinary photos on the day.
Here’s what’s included:
A two-hour session in London with myself (and an assistant or additional photographers if required).
Full professional editing with advanced software at my private studio.
An online gallery for you to review every image, along with a USB, so you can re-use your high-resolution engagement portraits however you wish.
Booking an engagement shoot before your wedding means you can practise, feel comfortable in front of the lens, and be more relaxed taking portrait images or posed shots.
South London Lifestyle Photographer
Lifestyle portraits can be as formal or laid back as you like – and are a wonderful way to build up a bank of images to capture your day-to-day business or record your family at that moment in time.
Options include taking natural captures at your home or your favourite spot – whether that’s a family picnic or a walk in a shady wood.
The purpose of lifestyle portraits is to share your story in an unstaged way, with all of the below included in my two-hour lifestyle portrait photography package:
Two-hour portrait session at your selected location.
Captures of a range of images of you and your family.
A private online gallery to review all images shot.
A USB with high-resolution, fully edited images.
I include full copyright usage and deliver all of your captures to you to re-use and revisit as often as you wish!
Photo Studio Portraits
If you’d like to record portraits of yourself and a group of friends, relatives, loved ones or colleagues, a dedicated photo studio allows you to sit for images for up to three hours – whether silly shots with fancy dress props at a party or to capture a bank of photos.
Photo studio hire includes:
Three-hour rental until 10 pm (throughout London).
High quality 6 x 4″ prints for each person.
Props and fancy dress accessories if you wish to use them.
An online gallery where you can order prints and portraits.
Hiring a photo studio is a great way to encourage guests to get involved at a wedding or special birthday and can be a highly cost-effective option if you require a range of portrait images.
Informal Photo Booth Portraits
As an alternative to a photo studio, a photo booth is a hugely popular photography option for weddings and anniversaries, available for hire for a five-hour session until midnight.
Your bespoke tailored booth matches your themes and style, with props if you’d like them, plus a guest book to record well wishes and messages.
Every guest receives high-quality 7 x 5″ prints of their portraits or can order their favourite images through an online gallery.
Booking a South London Portrait Photographer
Many people find the concept of portraiture scary because they perceive that they don’t know how to pose or feel awkward sitting for a shoot.
My job as an experienced photographer is to put you at ease and make the process a fun, relaxing and pleasant day.
