JOHN PAYTON PHOTOGRAPHY - CAPTURING YOUR LOVE STORY

MODERN, STORYTELLING ESSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, I'm John, a wedding photographer and filmmaker capturing wedding stories in Essex, London and beyond. My work is all about easy going, natural and elegant wedding photography and cinematic wedding films which reflect the uniqueness, joy and fun of your wedding day. I tell authentic tales of love, through memorable, emotional and eye-catching imagery. 

From the moment we meet, this is all about YOU. Every couple is different, so I will listen to how you met, who the key people are at your wedding, and what YOUR story is. It's my privilege to reflect all of this in your wedding photographs and film. I look forward to connecting with you both and creating wedding photographs and films together, that you'll love forever.

THE EXPERIENCE

Choosing me to document your wedding will mean you have a guiding, creative voice, but also someone who champions everything you desire for your wedding. I don't just book you in and see you a year later for your wedding! I invest time into growing a relationship with a couple and will keep in touch throughout your journey to your wedding day. We will carefully plan the details of the day in our initial and wedding schedule consultations where we will also get to know each other and plan to make the wedding day photos and film a more natural, fun and familiar experience. 

 

I will always be transparent with pricing and keep the admin simple and straight forward. I'm friendly and easy going and my photographic style is mostly documentary, keeping unobtrusive and real. Where I do carefully style images in a wedding portrait session, I will help you feel at ease, unforced and completely in the moment with each other. Your images and film will reflect your story together.
