Derek Anson Photography, Essex based documentary wedding photographer.

Hi, I'm a dad, husband, and professional photographer of beautiful families, loving couples and fantastic wedding days. I'm based in Essex, and available for commissions throughout the UK.

I have been fortunate enough to have worked at some beautiful venues alongside some well-known faces, from children’s TV presenters to elite sports stars, including the great Pele. Yet I spend most of my time photographing fun, easy-going couples just like yourself.

10+ years experience documenting weddings of all shapes and sizes in Essex, London and throughout the UK.

I have over 10 years of experience, which includes lots of weddings, christenings, amazing events and thousands of people. Ranging from small intimate weddings with just a handful of loved ones to large all-day celebrations with 300+ guests, and everything else in between. To view more of my work please take the time to explore my portfolio or to check availability please get in touch today, thank you.


"You definitely captured some great moments!" 

Absolutely love the photos, thank you so much, they are brilliant! Have been having a good laugh with some of them too! You definitely captured some great moments! Thank you for our wedding albums - they have come out so well! We love them! (It just took us hours to narrow down our selection as we had a hard time trying not to just put all the photos in!)

​"felt like I was reliving the day"

Wow! I am in awe - I can’t thank you enough. The photos are phenomenal and you captured the day perfectly! Just scrolling through the pictures felt like I was reliving the day, you are incredibly talented and I’m so lucky to have had you as a photographer! 

I hope you and your family are keeping well and no doubt will keep you in mind if anyone I know needs a photographer.

“He seemed to get as much enjoyment out of being part of the day as we did”

“We have just seen the photos Derek took at our daughters wedding. I am completely in awe of them, they are so beautiful and have truly captured their love for each other and the amazing day. He seemed to get as much enjoyment out of being part of the day as we did. I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you Derek”.

“I truly felt we booked him as a photographer and by the end of it all, we made a friend too”

“Derek is not only the most amazing photographer, but he is also such a lovely guy and he really understood what we wanted from our wedding photos. I and the entire wedding party felt completely relaxed with him. I truly felt we booked him as a photographer and by the end of it all, we made a friend too. Thank you again Del x”

“Derek made our day so relaxed”

“We met Derek after he did an engagement shoot for us. We liked his natural style so much we booked him for our wedding, and then a year later, our daughter's christening. You don't even realise he's taking your photo, and all images capture the real emotion of the day. We've had many comments from guests on how fantastic he is; Derek made our day so relaxed. Absolute fantastic photographer and man, could not ask for any more. Although I now need more excuses to need a photographer.”
