CRAIG PRENTIS – WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN KENT
I have been a photographer all my working life.
I studied photography at the Kent Institute of Art and Design in Rochester, Kent and whilst there, began to build up a folio of sport images taken at local sporting events. I went on to work for two sports picture agencies, notably Allsport which is now part of Getty Images and travelling extensively throughout the world. I spent about eight years photographing every kind of sport from tiddly winks to Champions League football, with much of my work published in newspapers and magazines all around the world.
Wishing to develop my own business more, I found myself drawn to wedding photography after being asked to photograph a couple of friend’s weddings. I’ve never looked back and have now been photographing weddings for over ten years.
Weddings are fantastic to photograph and always provide lots of interesting photo oppotunities. I love the way that everyone is dressed up and looking good and ready to have a good time. For me, weddings are all about the people. Of course, it’s nice to have beautiful locations and decorations, but a wedding is a unique social occasion and that’s why my attention is always drawn to photographing the people at the wedding. You’ll notice in my galleries that there aren’t a lot of wedding detail pictures. That’s not because I don’t photograph them……. I do – it’s very important to document how everything looked on the day. But for me, the social gathering aspect is the most fascinating part. The most interesting pictures are storytelling ones involving the people who were there on the day to help celebrate the happy event.
I work from my office at home and I would be delighted see you here if you wish to come and discuss your wedding and look through some albums.
