Hi, I am Rob Dunning and I’m a wedding photographer specialising in Reportage Wedding Photography. I’m based in Warsash near Southampton and the New Forest but cover weddings across the county and regularly photograph weddings in the surrounding areas of Dorset, Surrey, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Sussex. (As much as I love London, I no longer cover weddings in the City but can happily recommend photographers that do).
My style of photography is very much based around capturing natural, candid moments as they occur and are focused around wedding guests enjoying your special day. I’m happy to take time out for a handful of group photos and a few Bride & Groom portraits, but overall, I’m hired by clients to blend into their wedding day as just another guest with a couple of posh cameras to capture natural, unposed, documentary style wedding pictures that show the real story of what occurred on their wedding day.
My apprenticeship into photography began many years ago as a cruise ship photographer. I then set up working on my own in 2005 and have photographed over 250-weddings since. Although I cover quite a lot of commercial and corporate photography, there is nothing like a wedding to set my passion of photography on fire. Floating in the background amongst the emotional buzz a wedding creates, allows me to capture people, sentiments and expressions that are rarely seen at any other event.
As a documentary photographer my aim is to capture moments in a classic, timeless and artistic form. I want my clients to look at their photographs in years to come without cringing at any modern day photographic fads. I want the generations that follow the bride & groom to look at their wedding day pictures and see the photographic documentary of an amazing day.
