Helen Abraham Photography I'm an award winning documentary wedding photographer based in London and I've been on this adventure for nearly ten years; travelling all over the world to capture amazing stories in beautiful locations. I'm the wedding photographer people come to when they would rather spend their wedding day with their friends and family than spending hours posing for pictures.

Who want the sort of pictures that will evoke love, memories and laughter. Who spend more time thinking about how to put on the greatest party to celebrate their friends and family than finding the exact shade of bridesmaid ribbons. Not that I don't like attention to detail - I love photographing beautiful flowers and majestic venues - it's just that I like the people more - and that's the story I want to tell.

I'm used to my couples being camera shy - I am too, so I relate - but it's my job to put you at your ease, allowing you to relax and laugh and create photographs that you recognise yourself in. You probably have lots of questions so take a read on my FAQ page or send me an email.
Highlights

read more › Documentary wedding photography, or photojournalistic wedding photography are phrases that have become really popular in the last few years within the wedding industry as there has become a desire to move away from a more traditional approach to wedding photography. I'm sure you've seen your parents wedding album which included maybe 10-20 stiff and formally posed photographs? This is a really exciting move for us as wedding photographers as it draws from a great tradition of photography which include photography greats across a range of genres such as Don McCullin's war photography, street photography from Henri Cartier-Bresson or the characterful observation work of Martin Parr.

read more › I'm a useful source of knowledge for all those wedmin questions - in fact I've written a few blog posts on wedding tips and planning your timeline - which comes from having photographed nearly 250 weddings. Trust me - I know what works and what will make your day smooth and the party swing. I describe my style as documentary wedding photography - which means I have a hands off approach on the day. We'll have a chance to meet up for a coffee or speak face to face on Skype before the wedding to chat through the timings of the day so nothing is a surprise and that you feel you have a friend arriving to photograph your day and not a total stranger.

read more › One of my favourite things to do when visiting my parents or grandparents homes is to sift through the drawers, boxes and albums of images of myself as a kid, family holidays, ancestors that I never met. It was a connection to my past and brought my family great pleasure to point out relatives and holiday spots that I couldn't remember. They were precious and valuable and will bring pleasure for many years to come. An album is not just for you - they are for your children and your grandchildren - they are a document of your family history and are a priceless record of your life.

read more › My preference is to blend in with your guests and the background in order to capture the most vivid and naturalistic photographs I can. I describe my style as a mix of 90% documentary and 10% portrait. This means that if you hate having your photograph taken then I am your perfect photographer! I'm looking to capture you and your guests in the most emotive and storytelling way which means minimal posing. Even the posed shots are captured in a way that feels organic and unstaged. I'm happy to chat on the telephone for a more personal way to get in touch, +44 7894 557881.

read more › Most of my bridal couples are quick to tell me how much they hate having their photo taken so it's a great opportunity to spend some time with your wedding photographer for an engagement shoot ahead of your wedding to get some pictures that you can use on your wedding website, save the date cards or invitations or of course to share on Instagram. It doesn't have to be formal, an engagement shoot with me usually involves 90 minutes - 2 hours of wandering through the city taking in some of the most captivating locations in town.

read more › Where to start? I know there are plenty of bridal planners, blogs, wedding advice websites out there so I'm not going to go into loads of detail but what I am going to offer is some advice from a photographer's point of view and the ways in which you can help me to take the best wedding photographs for you. Having photographed well over 200 weddings over the last 6 years I have a good sense of what works and what doesn't and how the small details that will make the day flow better for both you and your guests.

read more › One of my favourite aspects of wedding photography is the connections I make with couples and families that lead me to continue to be a part of their lives as their families grow meaning that I get to witness and document pregnancies, new borns, children's birthday parties and regular family shoots. Time passes so fast when children are small and the changes over a year can be huge. Regular photo sessions can capture some of that magic for a priceless record of these early years and moments that can easily be forgotten in the hectic pace of life.
