Kerry Ann Duffy
Kerry easily makes it in to the list of the best Kent wedding photographers, having been nominated and won a range of awards. As with Olly, she prides herself on being an unobtrusive photographer, but she is also focused on ensuring that neither the bride or groom feel uncomfortable. She says, ‘I totally understand that being in front of the camera is not the most comfortable thing in the world, so when it comes to photographing the two of you, I will give you confidence and direction, but mostly, I will just ask you to enjoy the opportunity you have to be together for a while.’ For the bride who is looking forward to a romantic day, but is worried about feeling like a paparazzi targeted celebrity, Kerry will ensure that you don’t feel self-conscious or awkward.

This Belgian born (and fluent French speaking photographer) is friendly, energetic and focused on getting you the best photos for your day. His parents have only one photo from their wedding after their photographer lost the photos in the days before digital back ups, and so his dedication to getting you the perfect set is unerring. He prides himself on making sure that the photos he takes suit the vibe of your day, so James could be the perfect addition to any wedding.

Benjamin says, ‘To me, wedding photography is about capturing the beauty and story of your wedding day as the moments – big and small – unfold in front of me. There is something about weddings… our defences are stripped away and we can be our true selves under the loving gaze of our friends and family. ‘ An obsessive photographer his whole life, he has been snapping weddings since 2008. He makes a huge effort to be inconspicuous on your big day, but also ensures that he doesn’t miss a thing.
