Storytelling Wedding Photography

My name is Rob Hill and I am a reportage wedding photographer based in Saffron Walden. My photographic heart lies in portraits and documentary photography, showing things as they happen. I tell the story of your wedding day in a series of images and video that is simple and timeless. I guess you could call this storytelling wedding photography.

This is a big day in your life and you want to look back through your photos and re-live the same experience. The day is full of anticipation and fun with a huge buzz of excitement. Every little detail counts and capturing each magic moment makes the day a real success.

My wedding shoots are inspired by reportage style photography, standing back to view the event as it unfolds through the lens. I work by creating a mixture of establishing shots showing where you were, tighter shots showing what you and your guests were doing and lastly very tight shots showing those small details that complete the narrative of your day.


“My photography is perfect for those who really don’t like posing for the camera. It is my role to show people at their best whilst they are mostly unaware that I am photographing them.”


What you can expect

I provide a full day’s coverage and supply digital copies of all your individually edited images. Typically, I arrive about an hour or so before you leave your home or hotel to get married and then I quietly shoot all day staying a little beyond the first dance. That generally covers all the major aspects of the day.

I work with your selected photos to design and create a high quality album. As art director of Urban Picnic Photography I can assure a high class service and technical print knowledge to insure the best wedding package. Drop in to my studio in Saffron Walden and view the range of frames, print papers and albums I offer.

The next step?

Feel free to look through my work and contact me to talk about your wedding plans. I have various price plans to accommodate all budgets. You can call or email me so we can have an informal chat about your needs and the plans for your day. After that we can either meet or work things out on the phone.
