A lot of couples who contact me want wedding photos that are not your conventional set of posed typical photos. With C & P, we met for a chat in the studio to talk about their wedding plans and what they’d like me to do for the photos. When I photograph weddings I’m really photographing people, and so having that personal connection before the wedding itself is so important. I got to learn about all the obvious, when, where etc… but what was more important is that I got to know something about who they are.
I’ve photographed many weddings in Islington Town Hall a I think the registrars there have a lot of respect for what they do. It never feels like they’re just doing their job. They conducted the ceremony in such a simple and sensitive way that it made you…
Corporate portraits are an important part of your online presence. Whether they’re for a Linkedin profile, Social Media, Website’s about Page or PR. Communication has gone digital and putting a face to a name makes it personal. So what are your options when book a business portrait session? The most obvious choice is a corporate headshot against a white background. It’s easy and clean and will work well in most layouts. This is why it is by far the most popular choice and a quick look on your linkedin connection will prove that. For some professionals it makes sense to do shoot more than a headshot. Business profile photos rarely need to show a person from head to toe, but top half shots can show a bit more character and stand out from the crowd.

We had a great time shooting these couple portraits in London. Starting from the London Eye and continuing to lesser known gems.Scheduling an early morning start meant having the best light and relatively empty streets. The effort paid off as London looked like a location in Italy or Spain in some of these shots. Few cities have as many parks as London and these make great locations for photography. If you’re interested in couple or individual portraits in the London area, get in touch to discuss ideas, locations and costs.
The photography brief was: Keep it personal and unique. The business: Music therapy in Hampstead North London. The idea of welcoming clients into an honest, creative environment was translated into these photos. I like the fact that they are different from most business shots and reveal a lot about the sitters.
I shot in the deep south (south London) for fair trade pioneers PeopleTree. We spent the early hours of the morning outdoors in a beautiful forest to get the right mood for their Autumn winter collection. And later in a rustic pub. Good art direction and locations make such a difference.
I often get requests to photograph short, last minute weddings. These tend to be small intimate weddings where only a select group of family and friends are present. Booking out a Saturday or Sunday for two hours in advance can be tricky but last minute bookings are always welcome. Over the last few years I have photographed several short (around two hours) wedding ceremonies in Islington Town Hall, Mayfair Library, Chelsea Town Hall and other London venues. I do offer clients an hourly rate so they can decide what best suits their plan and budget. ps. my the new wedding photography website is weddingsbyodi.co.uk check it out!
