About Me

The storyteller behind the lens

Hello, I’m Deji, and my passion is capturing wedding stories through pictures.

I am an editorial and documentary wedding photographer based in Hertfordshire and started my journey into photography in 2014. Despite being very good at it, I realised that accounting wasn’t my true calling. So, I decided to explore my hobbies and interests, and that’s when I discovered my love for photography among other things. Photography has become a deep-seated passion for me as it beautifully preserves memories and stories that might otherwise be forgotten. In 2019, I took a leap of faith and transitioned to full-time wedding photography, and since then, every year has been a rewarding learning experience with significant growth.

Recently, I had the honour of being named one of the 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2022 by Rangefinder Magazine. This recognition means a lot to me and reaffirms that hard work and dedication truly pay off.

When I’m not capturing beautiful portraits and wedding photos, I cherish time with my family and friends, especially if there’s a BBQ involved! I’m also an avid sports fan, enjoying football, tennis, formula 1 and watersports. I love a chess and I’m fascinated with the strategic aspect of the game. I thrive on outdoor activities that challenge and push me beyond my comfort zone. My camera is my constant companion during our family travels, allowing me to document our adventures and the amazing places we visit.

My Approach

Imagine years from now, sitting with your wedding album, flipping through the pages, and being transported back to your wedding day. As a documentary wedding photographer, I understand that it won’t be the styled table settings or Instagram-worthy dress shots that truly move you. It will be those heartfelt moments—the pride on your father’s face as he walks you down the aisle, the glances as you say ‘I do,’ the tearful joy of your parents witnessing you in your wedding attire, the laughter as loved ones dance joyfully, and the quiet, stolen moments with your partner.

My approach is primarily documentary, aiming to be unobtrusive throughout your day. While I provide gentle direction for formal photos and romantic portraits, I believe in quietly capturing the genuine emotions and candid moments that make your wedding unique.

During a consultation, whether in person or over Zoom, we’ll get to know each other and discuss your plans. Working with natural light and beautiful locations, I create vibrant and emotive images that showcase the artistic and elegant aspects of your day. It’s crucial to choose a photographer whose style resonates with you and complements your vision. Feel free to explore my portfolio and packages, and if you can envision us working together, let’s chat! To ensure personalised attention, I limit the number of weddings I shoot, so reach out soon to check my availability.

With years of experience, I genuinely love what I do and enjoy working with people, whether shy or confident. Getting to know you allows me to create a comfortable environment, capturing authentic moments without awkward poses.

Capturing Timeless Memories

My photography style embraces natural beauty and authentic moments, with no forced poses or staged shots—just genuine expressions of joy and love. Emphasising contemporary elegance and timeless charm, your wedding photographs will remain captivating for generations. Every image is carefully edited to ensure the highest quality, preserving the magic of your wedding day. With an unobtrusive presence, I understand the importance of letting your day unfold naturally, allowing you to relax and enjoy your celebration while I work behind the scenes.

Moreover, my passion for photography knows no boundaries, and I happily travel across the UK and abroad for destination weddings.

Your love story is unique, and your wedding photography should reflect that. I take the time to understand your vision, preferences, and personalities, ensuring that your photos perfectly capture the essence of your relationship.
