“To a lot of people, when they think ‘Documentary Wedding Photography’, they think ‘York Place Studios’ – they really are that synonymous with the craft.”This Is Reportage
International London Wedding Photographers & Videographers
York Place Studios are Dom, Liam, Alex and Matt: a multi-award winning family collective of street-documentary style wedding photographers and videographers who seek to find big stories in even the smallest of moments throughout every single stage of a wedding day.
The focus of our wedding photography is on people and personality, seeking to create lasting memories with connection, humour, life and atmosphere, just the way it felt to be there.
We want to put our couples at ease with no posing or direction, using our skills to make you look your best without asking you to be an actor for the day.
Real stories, real personality, real memories. Real moments that really matter.
We’re a family team at York Place: husband, wife and two brothers. Family is important to us and perhaps that’s why we view family and friends as the most important part of your wedding. This is the one time that everyone you know from every stage and adventure of your life comes together. Different people, different personalities all bound by one common denominator: their affection for you.
Your wedding is an opportunity to really celebrate with those people. A chance to have fun, party like never before and live and love every last second of it. Weddings are a love story but they’re also a story of friendship and of laughter. That’s what we believe wedding photography and videography should be about too!
What Is Documentary Wedding Photography?
Documentary wedding photography is, in its simplest form, the art of capturing real moments of a wedding without any form of interruption or direction of a scene. Whilst seemingly important for all wedding photographers though true documentary wedding photography is probably rarer than you might think…

You might hear us described as either Reportage or Documentary Wedding Photographers and Videographers. In fact we’ve even been credited as the creators of a whole new alternative genre known as Street Documentary Wedding Photography. Whilst those terms are certainly fitting to the natural, unposed, un-intrusive way we approach our wedding photography and filming (and you can read more about that approach here), in truth neither of those descriptions are really what we’re about. At the heart of it our style is incredibly simple: It’s about you.
