Hey! I’m Nic! I’m a photographer based in London.
Photography isn’t my full time job – it’s what I like to call my “side hustle”. To me, it’s not a job, because I love doing it, I love meeting new people, working creatively and most of all, seeing the feedback I get from something I’ve created!
I like to shoot weddings documentary style and pretty much tell a story! Capturing moments that the couple might not see so when they look back at their photos they can have fun piecing it together!
Whilst it is really fun getting those candid shots, its equally as important to get the formal group photos. Yes, they can take a little while but there is no doubt that they will mean a lot to someone who was there!
Other shots I love doing are couple shots – I love these, its great to hang out and capture them just together. Every couple is different and that’s what makes it so fun! I generally tend to give little direction and just let them enjoy and take in their big day!
Having said this, I think some direction is good, which is why its really important, if you can, to do a pre wedding shoot. It’s a great way to practise being infront of the camera and also get to know me a bit more – you kinda have an idea of what to expect on the day too!
Last but by no means least, let’s not forget, the guests – they are a massive part of the day and clearly go to a fantastic effort to look incredible so, it would be rude not to get a photo of them whether it be doing a shot at the bar or cracking out some bloody good dance moves!
To celebrate the new decade I am running a wedding photography competition – yep, that’s right, I’m giving one lucky couple the chance to win a full days wedding photography package, from pre wedding prep to first dance! You’ll receive 9 hours coverage, high resolution images edited in my signature style, pre wedding consultation and all edited images unwatermarked sent via an online link.
For your chance to win, head over to my Instagram and find the competition post, like it, comment if you’re getting married and like my Instagram page @nicfordweddingphotographer
Competition closes on February 29th2020, the winning couple will be picked at random and the winner will be announced within 2 weeks after the closing date!
*The competition is not open to clients who have already booked, the winning wedding must take place between 2nd January and 23rd December 2021.

I explored East London with Maddie and Manos for their pre wedding shoot ahead of their big day next month in Peckham.
We decided to go East to switch up locations so they have a variety of photos.
I personally think pre wedding shoots are really important. I got to know Maddie and Manos and they got to see how I worked, but most importantly how we worked together. It’s a great way to practise for the day!
