About Oliver Holder Photography

Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life, and you will always want to remember every noteworthy moment, every familiar face, and all the beautiful details. Hello, I’m Oliver, and I’m a professional photographer keen to capture the magic and joy of weddings. I fell in love with photography at age ten whilst taking photos of cars racing around Brands Hatch using my grandma's old 35mm Minolta. I vividly remember thinking 'What an amazing thing to do' and from that day on, I was hooked. Since 2011, I made photography my full-time career and I now I specialise in architecture and events. I photographed my first wedding in 2016 for some close friends and found it to be remarkably rewarding. I loved being part of such a memorable occasion and enjoyed capturing the special atmosphere and a couple's love and happiness as the day unfolds. For your wedding, I will make sure to completely focus on your needs and special requirements. Aside from the odd pre-planned group shots, I believe that the best images are the ones shot naturally – these showcase genuine moments and spontaneous interactions that are great to look back upon even years down the line. I’m friendly, approachable and shoot unobtrusively while making sure my clients and their guests are relaxed and barely notice the camera. All in all, I go out of my way to provide an exceptional service and gorgeous photographs that will be treasured for a lifetime. It takes me normally between 4-6 weeks to process the images and you will be able to access them through a secure online gallery where you can order your own prints, canvasses, and a few other options. I get a buzz creating spectacular memories and nothing makes me happier than thrilled clients who are delighted with their final images. If you’re looking for a dedicated and talented photographer who will go beyond your expectations, please get in touch to discuss your wedding plans.

David D.'s review on Nov 24, 2019

Not only is Oliver a fantastic photographer he is also a truly lovely, hilarious person. He seamlessly mixed in with our guests and made everyone feel so comfortable that they didn't even notice when he was taking photos. Oliver helped us to relax when taking our "couple photos", finding beautiful locations and capturing magical, real life moments. He even suggested some great music when the bridal party were getting ready. He was always there ready to photograph each part of our day, from the quiet, intimate moments, to the large and lively.

Sarah M.'s review on Nov 19, 2019

From the very beginning of the process, Oli was an absolute joy to work with. He made us feel at ease straight away and made an effort to get to know us as a couple and how best to capture our big day based on our wishes. Our engagement shoot in Richmond Park allowed us to get used to being in front of the camera with Oli making us feel really comfortable. Oli was always very thorough and responsive to our questions/request in the build up to the wedding. He even managed to scout out our church location prior to the big day to ensure he had the best angles on the day. On the day itself, Oli was super professional and instantly struck up a good rapport with our guest. Oli's style as a photographer is to make sure the couple have the most enjoyable day and as such was a 'fly on the wall', perfectly capturing our special moments while any disruption. We were so happy with how the photos came out, as well as the ease of use of the online gallery. There was a perfect mix of candid shot and precious portrait of family and bridal party. We can't recommend Oli highly enough and can guarantee you won't be disappointed with the amazing service he provides! S&S 18.05.19

We loved having Oliver as our photographer on our wedding day. He did everything we asked for and was very flexible. He was punctual and everybody loved him.

Erika v.'s review on Oct 27, 2019

We first met Ollie on a Skype call, which was a great chance to get to know each other, as we found the prospect of having our photos taken quite daunting. Later we met for a small shoot to become more comfortable in front of the camera and get rid of any jitters, so when it came to our big day, he was already in our inner circle of people which was just perfect. It meant he got some lovely personal shots in the morning and at every stage from there he really captured the mood of the wedding. You wouldn’t even know he was there, as he blended in so well with everyone. We particularly love his style of not taking a lot of posed photos, allowing us to have real memories from the day. They said the day would go so fast - thank goodness for Ollie, as he captured so many wonderful memories for us. We would recommend Ollie to everyone we know.

Petia P.'s review on Sep 30, 2019

Oliver did an amazing job taking the photographs on our special day. He is very professional, very kind and his work is of high quality. We particularly like his artistic style and the ability to catch special moments while we enjoyed the day. The portfolio produced by him is beautiful and he has been kind enough to also organise for us to have the whole set of photographs taken on the day, including those that didn't make it to the final album. Thank you, Oliver. We will forever look at these photos and rely on them to recreate the day in times when we feel like we have forgotten the intense joy that we felt. Moreover your work will decorate our walls for years to come, illustrating exactly what we hoped for these photographs to illustrate.

Mark G.'s review on Sep 26, 2019

Oliver is not only a truly wonderful and talented photographer, he is also a lovely, charming Man. Right from the get go when he was 20 mins early for the hair & make up pictures through to the evening disco, Oliver was nothing but a delight! His lovely personality kept us relaxed and sincerely laughing during the whole day, not to mention our guests had nothing but positive feedback for him. Oliver is clearly very dedicated and fantastic at his job, the pictures came out perfectly! Oliver done a great job at capturing endless great moments, both in candid and non candid ways. We would highly recommend Oliver to anyone. Mark and Lizzie, 21/9/2019 - Wedding, Rhinefield House (New Forest)

Oliver W.'s review on Sep 10, 2019

I liked everything. The weather was 50-50 and he had scoped out alternative photo spots for us under cover, he eased us into the day and ensured he was fully prepared, He took awesome photos and was great fun. Oliver added amazing value before, during and after our wedding. Thanks. If you don't hire him you are a donut.

Michael H.'s review on Aug 26, 2019

My wife & I chose Oliver to be our photographer for our wedding day. He was great! He is easy to get on with and professional. He got on with everyone during the day even though it was a busy day as well as accommodating, especially being an Asian wedding the days are very long. We were very pleased with our wedding photography and the turn around is quite quick. He kept us up to date with the progress of our pictures and had an online gallery, which we could preview and download. As part of our wedding package, he also through in an album and engagement shoot, which very nice of him. He would meet personally with us when need to go through the rundown of the day with him and walk-through of the locations to give us advice on where to take the best shots on the day. I also made a special request with some help getting some pictures of the day and he was very helpful and accommodating, which we really appreciated because he went beyond what the package offered us. I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a great wedding photographer. He had captured our special day the way we wanted our pictures to be, very natural and not forced.

Nora S.'s review on Aug 23, 2019

Ollie really captured our day beautifully. HIs documentary style meant that he was able to embed himself into our wedding seamlessly and catch us in the moment. I'd absolutely recommend him in a heartbeat.

Alexander M.'s review on Aug 23, 2019

Oliver did a brilliant job of photographing our wedding. He stepped into the breach at the last minute and completely saved the day. He did a good job of scoping out the location in advance and came up with a series of locations to get unique shots with - this we really appreciated. We are very pleased with him on several counts; the end results, his energy and adaptability on the day, his communication throughout, his willingness to respond to our wishes, edit the photos with our input and his overall manner and humour. Each photographer has their own style and his suited us very well, if you like his style you will have a very good experience with him. We thoroughly recommend him.

Questions & answers

What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I like to get to know all my couples as I find that this helps bring each and every wedding story to life on the day. I always like to try and meet or at least do a video call and go through what you are looking for in terms of style and coverage usually at the point of booking and then approximately 4 weeks before your wedding day in case the timeline of the day has changed.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Get to know your photographer, you are going to be spending a lot of time with them and you need to feel relaxed and reassured that they are going to be able to capture what you want. You are letting someone in to the most intimate part of your life, your families and close friends so you need to also be able to trust them completely.
Describe a recent project that went well. Scope? How long did it take?
Last wedding took nearly 12 hours, it went so so well, amazing day, fun and laughter just how a wedding should be!
How did you first get into this line of work?
I have been a professional photographer specialising in architecture and events since 2011. After turning down many a wedding I finally photographed my first wedding in 2016 after some close friends asked me to portray their special day in Sicily… I wish I knew then what I did now! Fast forward four years on and I can honestly say that I absolutely love photographing weddings, every couple that I have been lucky enough to photograph their day for is just an honour.

Holly M. said "We found Mike on Bidvine and, upon speaking to to him on the phone, it was clear that he would be a good candidate for the photography at our wedding. On the day itself he made us feel at ease even though we had only just met him. It was lovely to see all the guests engaging with him,
