Documentary wedding photographer based in Billericay, Essex.

Hello, I'm Derek Anson, a non-traditional documentary wedding photographer based in Billericay, Essex. I've been capturing the weird, the wonderful, and the beautiful at weddings of all shapes and sizes since 2010. I'm lucky to have been part of so many lovely, emotional and fun wedding days, documenting beautiful relationships and special in-between moments.

What is a documentary wedding photographer?

A documentary wedding photographer has the ability to tell the story of your day through candid, unposed images. They have the ability to capture the most important moments without interrupting the flow of the day or dictating events. 

Being a documentary wedding photographer means I have a "hands-off" approach. I don't stage situations or tell people what to do. 

It genuinely is a case of planning the day of your dreams and getting on with it. Live your day, and I'll be there to capture all the beautiful, odd, funny, loving in-between moments.

Why choose a documentary wedding photographer?

If you would love your wedding day to be relaxed, fun, and stress-free and have photographs packed with emotion; then a documentary wedding photographer is what you need.

Photographers who have a documentary approach to weddings will produce work with a higher level of emotion. The images will be unique as they will not be planned or staged. As a documentary wedding photographer, I wouldn't dictate events or tell people what to do or when to do it. I'll blend in with the wedding day and capture the story as I see it. 

This approach will allow your guests to relax and be themselves; they'll soon forget I'm even there. As you don't need to plan or do anything to suit me you'll have more time to spend with family and friends and experiencing the day.
