Nice To Meet You
Nice To Meet You
Hi, I’m Heni – a super relaxed documentary photographer in the quaint market town of Thame, Oxfordshire.
Thame is perectly perched on the Bucks-Oxon border not far from Oxford and Aylesbury. I mainly work in the Home Counties but I shoot weddings all over the UK and abroad.
I’m a fast walker, day-dreamer and wishful thinker. I’m a vinyl enthusiast AKA compulsive record collector – which means I’m running out of space fast! The best things in my life are my other half Robert and our three scrumptious dogs Abby, Lucy and Abe. We are loyal supporters of our local pub – The Six Bells.
I’m a bit of a Netflix nut when I have a minute to spare. I like to laugh and cringe at the same time – Kirsten Wigg in Bridesmaids come to mind. I won’t say I dislike the winter but I LOVE the sun (who doesn’t?). I usually take a month off during the cruellest time of winter to visit family and friends in sunnier climes. I often go to New Zealand and South Africa – which means I’m available for weddings in those destinations!
I’ve been in love with photography for as long as I can remember. My first camera was a late-eighties polaroid camera that I won at a village fete. I was totally enthralled!
I’ve studied photography as part of a media degree. We worked in film at the time but digital was just taking off, which was all very exiting indeed. I took my time to gather the kit and hone my skills. Finally, taking the leap in 2012 when I shot my first wedding as a ‘pro’.
My style of photography is super relaxed and not obtrusive, but with great results! I prefer a candid approach. I roam in background, getting as many shots as possible of people laughing and having fun. We will of course make time for group shots and couple photos – but always looking natural and relaxed.
If you are going to say that you feel awkward in front of the camera, then please don’t worry – pretty much all couples say exactly the same thing. That is where I come in! It is my job not only to make it an enjoyable experience, but also a memorable part of your wedding day.
“Heni is not only an amazing photographer,
but a really lovely guy.
He managed to get the most incredible photos that tells the entire story of our day – without us even really feeling his presence.
