I’m Kristian Leven, an International award-winning, London-based wedding photographer.

Or rather, I like to think of myself as more of a wedding storyteller.

Your wedding is one of the most memorable events of your life, and while you’re enjoying every minute of it, I’m there to unobtrusively document each moment in stunning photographs that seamlessly tell the story of your day. My approach to wedding photography is one that champions discretion over direction, so you never feel like you’re missing out on anything to have your photographs taken.

My unique combination of photojournalism and fine art helps me really tell your story in a distinctive way.

I’ll document everything from the early morning coffee to the first dance in a fly-on-the-wall style that results in expressive, emotive photographs.

I keep a low profile whilst capturing those loving glances and tender moments throughout the day, whilst making everyone feel comfortable when it comes to group shots and posed portraits. Every wedding is different, which is why a standard approach to shooting them just doesn’t work. That’s why I utilise the lighting and the backdrops in each unique venue to ensure your photographs are truly one of a kind.

The happiness, pride and love expressed on your wedding day will leave you with lasting memories, and I love nothing more than capturing all of these memories for you on camera. To find out more about how I can tell the story of your day with a beautiful, bespoke wedding album, get in touch – I’d love to hear all about your plans.

I approach every wedding quietly and unobtrusively, whilst building up a unique story of all the significant moments. My aim is to capture the spirit and feel of the day, ensuring that the biggest day of your life will never be forgotten.

This storytelling is combined with the two types of photography I love: journalism and fine-art. I look for original compositions and beautiful light, to turn your wedding pictures into something you would proudly hang on your wall.
