Oliver, enjoying a glass of wine during a brief break at a wedding at Fulham Palace, London.
The WeddingLoft has 3 photographers. Each has exceptional skills and you won’t find a better team anywhere when it comes to capturing your wedding. Since we are typically very busy, it is best to get in touch as soon as possible to secure your wedding date. My photography is focused not only on weddings, engagements and rehearsal dinners, but also on portraits, children and special events.
Oliver is Director of Photography at the WeddingLoft.
My passion is photography. I have loved photography since I was given a simple camera at the tender age of 8. Within a few months I was lucky enough to capture a great picture of a diver at a local swimming competition, which was published in our daily newspaper — and for which I was actually paid a modest sum. Now my photographic interests are in weddings, engagements, portraits, children, travel (such as taking pictures for the BBC in the jungles of West Africa), and fine art photography.
We have now moved from film to the digital age which has greatly expanded the creative potential of photography. But the critical need for intense observation and artistic expression remains more important than ever. And no photographic challenge is greater than wedding photography.
It’s so easy to take bad pictures, and so important to take really good ones. Weddings generate strong emotions, and it is really important to capture these feelings as discretely as possible. I like to observe and record all the interactions and details that might otherwise be missed. My mission is to create photographs of eternal beauty that will be enjoyed for a lifetime – and beyond.
Please take the time to examine my portfolio galleries as well as some of the album designs that illustrate my work from some past weddings.
Then please call or email Marita for an appointment.
Alex is an outstanding photographer. His work for the WeddingLoft has been spectacular. While being very experienced with weddings, his interests extend to sports photography as well as to capturing images of people and wildlife both in the United States and far off lands. Having an exceptionally good eye, Alex is a master of capturing that telling moment, and his photographs tell the story far better than any verbal description could achieve. Often Alex works with Oliver and together we are quite a team.

Willem is unusual because not only is he a great photographer, but he is also a musician. Willem has been known to take over from a DJ while also photographing a wedding, because the DJ was making a hash of it! He fixed the technical problems and got everything back to normal before resuming his role as photographer. Bottom line: Willem is not only charismatic, but also versatile!
