LONDON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS & VIDEOGRAPHERS
STAY IN THE MOMENT
Nothing Posed | Nothing Staged
As street-inspired documentary wedding photographers and videographers London is, without doubt, one of our favourite cities in the world to shoot a wedding. London is a city of artistry and creativity and with our amazing couples applying that creativity and unique outlook to their weddings it’s hard to beat the London wedding vibe! As one of the best cities in the world to shoot street photography, the city’s mix of extraordinary culture, diversity, beautiful architecture and incredible people compliments our particular style of street wedding photography like almost no other place in the world!
With such a huge variety of venues from industrial chic warehouses to breweries, hotels, gastro-pubs and historic halls and ballrooms, London is sure to provide every couple with the perfect venue to match your style and vision for your wedding day: a place to express yourselves, your personalities and craft your unique version of what a wedding should look like.
Our street style documentary wedding photography and videography is all about capturing those things that make your wedding so unique to you. We don’t recreate past images, we don’t put you in awkward poses or take you away from your guests, we capture wall-art worthy real moments of what really happened and how it felt to be there. We look for expressions of personality, we look to accentuate tiny moments, we look to capture the feel of your day and nobody else’s. Nothing posed, nothing staged, just real moments captured in our unique creative style.
So whatever setting you choose our family team of Dom, Liam, Alex and Matt are ready to capture your London wedding photography and videography in the unique, unposed candid York Place photo & video style that has given York Place an international reputation and taken us all around the world photographing and filming very special, completely unique weddings for all of our amazing couples.

CHOOSING OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS WAS THE EASIEST TASK WE HAD. WE BOTH AGREED WE DIDN’T WANT THE “CONVENTIONAL-PEOPLE-SMILING-TO-THE-CAMERA” KIND OF PICTURES, WE WANTED TO CAPTURE THE WEDDING, THE MOMENT, AS THEY WERE. OPENING HUNDREDS OF TABS REVEALED MORE AND MORE OF THE SAME UNTIL WE SAW YORK PLACE STUDIOS – IMMEDIATELY WE STOPPED AND SAID THIS IS IT. THE PHOTOS ON THEIR WEBSITE WERE SO MESMERISING, WE WANTED TO FRAME THEM WITHOUT KNOWING THE PEOPLE, AND THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRADITIONAL WEDDING PICTURES TO THE ART THEY BRING.

Documentary wedding photography, street photography style
About York Place Studios' unique Docustreet style, born on the streets of London
Shooting street photography in London started out as a hobby. Now street photography has become integral to everything we do.
We never wanted to be great wedding photographers, we wanted to be great photographers.
Wedding photography is, as a genre, always in danger of falling into cliche. There’s always a new trend, always a new craze that wedding photographers are looking to emulate, but for us we never wanted to be like anybody else, we wanted to find our viewpoint, our style. A style not based on tricks or constructs, a style based purely on the principles of great photography: story, composition, moment. A style that meant we would always be creating, never recreating.
To do that we stopped thinking about what we assumed was expected of a wedding photographer and started to focus on the same things that we found interesting in street photography – people being people, humour, personality quirks, colour, symmetry, unexpected stories and small moments as well as big ones. We started using the same cameras at weddings that we used on the street and stopped thinking of them as two separate entities. There was no longer wedding photography and street photography, just photography. That didn’t mean that we abandoned the expected beats of a wedding day: the confetti, the exchange of rings, the first dance – all of those moments are of course still there, it’s just that there would also be so much more.
That style, that mindset that we pioneered has now become known as street wedding photography, street documentary or even Docustreet wedding photography and has gained an international following that has taken us from its roots in London to speaking engagements all over the world. To us though whatever you want to call it it will always just be the way that we see the world and the way that we see your wedding. Nothing posed, nothing staged, real moments, real stories, real photography.
