Alternative Wedding Photographer

Alternative Wedding Photographer

Are you looking for something different. You have browsed the net extensively looking for a wedding photographer that can capture the essence of what you are – unique and individual.

Perhaps you cant stand the stereotype of what it means to get married? You love your partner and want to outwardly commit to them – but that doesn’t mean you want it to be a normal wedding ceremony! And certainly that doesn’t mean you want your wedding photos to look stereotypically as standard! Beautiful yet so predictable!

If this sounds like you then we have found each other (at last)! You are just to sort of client we just love to work for. This is our niche and our focus: Alternative Wedding Photography.

Alternative Wedding Photographer

We are based in Brighton but have travelled the country and even the world to work on the right project. Brighton is well regarded as the UK’s creative hub for music, art, design, media, alternativism and photography and this is where our business was born. Brighton has become one of the UK’s most popular destinations to get married for gay, straight & slightly off-centre weddings. So Brighton makes the ideal creative destination for a wedding / civil ceremony and also an ideal place to have your photography undertaken by Shotgun Weddings.. (who else?)

As one of the UK’s main alternative wedding photography teams, we can boast a large number of alternative wedding jobs behind us and have developed a real niche within capturing the spirit of alternative-ism within our photography.

Whether you plan to marry naked, or themed abstractly, we would love to work with you.  We can even assist with idea / concept development for your special day. The more bizarre the better!

The skills remain the same of course: technical nous with a camera, an eye for capturing magic and a shared vision with our customers.

We like to get to know the couple and to understand their story and their unique dynamic. Regardless of sexuality our focus is on capturing the dynamic between two people.
