Well hello there, I’m Tarik an award-winning documentary wedding photographer based in Essex. I travel all over the country and to international destinations to photograph love, laughter, places and people. It’s a wonderful job and I feel so privileged to be able to share such special moments with people.

Essex Documentary Wedding Photographer

My approach to documentary wedding photography aims to capture natural moments as they happen. Nothing contrived, just honest, sincere moments that will tell a story of how brilliant your wedding day was and ensure these memories last for years to come. For this story to flow beautifully, I choose to start at the beginning of the day when your makeup artist arrives, capturing all the nervous preparation whether you’re at home or at your venue. I’ll then photograph every special moment, from the ceremony itself right through to the dance floor shenanigans.

My images have been featured in various publications and I have been lucky enough to contribute to some excellent online platforms, too.

Are you looking to book? I'd love to hear from you.

Capturing a wedding day is something I never take for granted and I’m really proud to call myself a wedding photographer. Documenting those special little moments between the formalities of the day is all part of the reportage and candid approach I take throughout the day. Some people call this approach “natural style” or “unposed” photography and essentially it is documenting your day by observing the story without interrupting the “moments”. I have a huge passion for travel and street photography which has helped me sharpen my skills and been a huge influence on my style.

Capturing Intimate & Special Moments

My objective is to try and stay out of the way, but still feel like I’m present on the day when things need a bit of orchestrating. It’s a great feeling when I hear guests saying “they didn’t even notice the photographer” yet the bride and groom tell me I’ve managed to capture such intimate and special moments throughout the day. Some have even called it “Ninja-like skills”. True Story!  So if you’re looking for a wedding photographer that won’t interrupt your day with endless formalities and will let it flow naturally so you and your guests can have an unforgettable time together, then I’d love to hear from you.

Additional Services

Alongside wedding photography, I also offer couple shoots and family photography sessions, during which I will apply the same principles to capture your unique personalities through candid photography that delivers incredible results.
