One photographer, two approaches.
When you're hiring a wedding photographer, it's pretty much a given that you're going to get all the big stuff. The kiss, the signing, the play-by-play, and the historical record of what happened. Ok, great. All good and fabulous.
Underneath all that though, is your little cousin Ned deep in the throes of inner nasal-cavity exploration. And at the dessert table, Aunt Claire is thieving from some of the jars when her ass should be well sat-down by now for speeches.
All of the quirk is as important as all of the glamour, and this is the stuff that we're really looking for.
To get the best of this, I shoot a unique mix of modern digital, and analogue Kodak film (apparently I'm meant to say that I also may have won international analogue photographer of the year a few years back). To do this, I bring along the same cameras that were originally used to document the first moon landings (not the exact same physical one though.. that's still left up there on the surface).
When you hire Briars Atlas, you aren't hiring a wedding photographer, you're hiring an experienced pair of eyes, finely-tuned in to understanding the beautiful strange circus that is a whole lot of connected humans in the same space, to care about your community for the day.
And to make stuff not just for you, but for that community.
This is what we do. And the fact we're handy with a camera is just a bonus.

I' m Oli.
Brought up on drawing and death-metal, i've always been interested in what's at the edges, and what's just to the side of the obvious. It's exactly what's led my work to be sought out by couples and planners all over the world.
I've done this for nearly a decade, so I know my way around making folks feel comfortable in front of camera, applying my unique way of seeing the world on their community, and making them come out with an incredible experience, and some important slices of nostalgia to enjoy.
