Surrey Wedding Photographer
For couples who want fun and extraordinary photographs
Hi, I’m Soven Amatya, an international multi-award winning Surrey Wedding Photographer, creating beautiful and heartfelt wedding photographs.
The subtle intake of breath when you see each other for the first time. The glances between your dearest friends and closest family, swept away by emotion as you say your vows.
The post-ceremony bear hugs, and elation that says ‘We did it!’.
I have an eye for narrating those memorable and unscripted ‘blink-and-you’ll-miss-them’ emotions and special moments of magic into your wedding photographs.
These are the moments that will stick with you forever, that evoke timeless memories, each time you excitedly leaf through your bespoke beautifully handcrafted wedding album.
Proud to be Featured In
“…choosing you as our photographer was one of the best decisions we ever made.
You took our memories to the next level and it’s something we will cherish forever”
Weddings in Surrey & Beyond
I have the pleasure of working with fun couples, who aren’t afraid to incorporate their own unique personalities into their big day and having their beautiful wedding in stunning venues across Surrey, the UK and all around the world.
With several years of experience in wedding photography and with multiple international awards you can relax and enjoy your one of your biggest days, trusting that I am on hand to document the emotions and energy of your amazing wedding day.
Whether your wedding is traditional, more relaxed and informal, or multicultural, my unobtrusive and empathetic approach will tell the story of your special day and capture those special moments of emotion.
As a documentary photographer, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings in a diverse range of locations from picturesque rural weddings in country estates and manor houses in Surrey and the UK to the heart of London venues.
You choose the location and I will be there with my creative and technical skills to create a beautiful record of your day that you will cherish forever.
My Style & Approach
Your wedding day is likely to be one of the most important days of your life, one that you’ll put an amazing amount of effort into planning to ensure everything is perfect, a day that you will remember for the rest of your life.
As an experienced and respected wedding photographer in Surrey and within the UK, my friendly and relaxed approach to capturing your wedding celebrations means you are able to relax and have fun with your friends and family knowing that I’ll be unobtrusively documenting your day.
The photographs you receive are not only natural and beautiful but also heartfelt, that embraces all your amazing in-the-moment emotions so you can treasure them for years to come, remembering how you felt as you look through them.
“…I’m a bit of a shy person and was worried about being the centre of attention but you absolutely made me feel at ease both in the morning and throughout the day“
Reasons to Book Me As Your Surrey Wedding Photographer
Your wedding day; you are surrounded by your amazing family and friends, gathered from all corners of the world. I focus my attention on capturing genuine and true moments.
Our interactions will be fun and full of laughter – from the first meeting, to the day itself and finally the joyful hand-over of your wedding album.
Incidentally, I think receiving your wedding album is a glorious moment, not to mention the perfect antidote for post-wedding blues.
My photographs capture moments in time. Weddings can be emotional roller coasters (good ones!).
I aim to capture your feelings – from the pre-ceremony butterflies and thrill of being pronounced as being married, to the delight at the best man’s speech and romance of your first dance – so you can re-live these emotions again and again
I have an expert eye for capturing the spontaneous moments – raw, undocumented and unscripted.
From the joyous, unbridled laughter to the bitter-sweet smiles as you remember those who couldn’t attend.
These ‘in-between’ moments narrate your story, beautifully and uniquely.
With so much going on, it’s hard to see the ‘big picture’ of your day.
That’s my job. I inconspicuously collect the reactions, gestures, and interactions you don’t see – the nervous groom waiting, the proud father seeing his daughter in her wedding attire for the first time – so you get the complete story.
As well as an emotional chronicle of events, I strive to create original, creative photographs that take them to a whole new level.
It may be the composition, the atmosphere, the lighting – or all three – but these high-impact photos are reminiscent of editorial images in glossy magazines.
In a day that’s filled with excitement, with hugs, smiles and words of congratulations after the ceremony, it can be a treat to sneak away for a few precious minutes alone.
We can use this time to create some fun and relaxed portraits, your first moments as a married couple captured forever.
