Photography was not my career of choice, having been convinced at an early age that my true calling was on the stage, guitar in hand. As my Wembley dreams faded, and my love of cake and chips put paid to a career as a pro cyclist, I realised that my love of photography, people, and human interaction could provide the answer to my career conundrum; I shot my first wedding for friends on the sunny island of Malta back in 2007, on a F100 Nikon film camera. I got immense satisfaction from it, the couple loved the photos, and thus, Stephen Bunn Photography was born.
Couples who book me want photographs of their wedding, but not necessarily a wedding photographer. They want someone who will blend in, and be in all the right places at all the right moments, to capture the interaction between their family and friends, gathered together on one day. I don’t operate as a silent figure, dodging in and out of the shadows. I blend in with the guests, will happily chat with everyone whilst discreetly documenting the day for you. As well as the natural reportage photos of your day, I pride myself on classic, creative portraits of the bride and groom.
By immersing myself in your wedding, and not simply watching from the sidelines, I am perfectly placed to capture the fleeting moments which pass in the blink of an eye. If the natural documentation of your day is important to you, and you want images which are evocative and full of expression, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch and tell me about your day.
I live by the beach in Kent with my wife Lyndsey, another wedding photographer, and Ozzy, the French bulldog. The former loves ankle boots and Art Deco, the latter loves cheese and chasing rabbits. And me? I can usually be found cycling, drinking coffee, or shooting some street photography. And eating cake. There’s always got to be cake.
If you’re planning your wedding and would like natural, creative, documentary coverage of the day, please drop me an email or pick up the phone to check availability.
