My name is Yaw, and I'm a London based wedding photographer. I first really became interested in wedding photography in 2014, after my wife and I received our own wedding photos.......
It's not that they weren't nice - quite the contrary, they were a beautiful documentation of our day. They were also very ordinary. So I embarked upon a journey to learn how to capture the extraordinary!
After hours spent reading books and watching youtube videos, taking 1000's of images, plus attending workshops by some of the UK's finest wedding photographers - i decided to give it a go - and the rest as they say is history
I love getting to know my couples, the challenges that wedding days can present, and the opportunity they give me for creative expression. No two weddings are the same, so it never gets tired!
My style is a mixture of creative portraiture, and documentary style photography. My passion lies in creating the extraordinary out of the ordinary. I achieve this utilising off-camera flash. I'm what they call a strobist! Lighting creates drama and impact, whilst also giving me an enhanced level over the control on my final, way before getting them into photoshop.
That said I'll never let my passion for creative imagerywork detract from my goal of capturing real, candid emotion. Those moments are priceless., hence I try to anticipate them and ensure I'm in the right place at the right time.
Outside of photography, I'm a husband to a wonderful woman, a father to 4 beautiful children and a all roind entrepeneur.
