Welcome to Jeff Oliver Photography

Jeff and Sarah Oliver are experienced wedding photographers based in Blackheath, London. With our unobtrusive and creative photography style we will capture your day in a relaxed and natural way.

Only recently married ourselves we have first hand experience of planning a wedding and we know what it feels like to be in front of the camera as well as behind it. With this knowledge we can help make your wedding planning as stress free as possible and ensure you feel relaxed in your wedding photos.

Now you know a little about us, we would love to find out more about you and your wedding plans, so do get in touch!

We also find that sometimes the hardest thing to do is to talk about yourself, it’s far easier to have someone do that for you. So here are testimonials from our happy couples.

What people say about us

Michelle & Ben

We used Jeff for our wedding in December 2014 and we can not recommend him highly enough the service he provided was exceptional from start to finish! We viewed our wedding photos yesterday and they were so much better than we could ever imagine thank you so much Jeff and Sarah for everything we would have no hesitation in recommending Jeff to anyone!!
Thank you so much again – Mr and Mrs Smith xx

Tanya & John

If you’re looking for a top quality wedding photographer, look no further than Jeff Oliver. The service we experienced from start to finish was first rate and the photos were just incredible.
An initial consultation at Jeff’s impressive studio convinced us he was the man for us. He and Sarah clearly live and breath their work and they combine their obvious technical ability with real a passion for what they do.

On the big day, they were both really helpful and supportive but entirely unobtrusive. We had both Jeff and Sarah cover our day and its testament to the way they go about their business that our guests barely notice they were there.
They didn’t try and bombarded us with technical jargon or encroach too much on our time during the day. They just asked us what we wanted, got on with the job, and produced some awesome photos!
They also produced a slideshow (to music), which provides a really fitting narrative of the entire day and is perfect for sending to guests following the wedding.
They really went the extra mile for us and we can’t recommend them highly enough!

Michelle & Anthon

Viewing our pictures and words can not describe how amazing the finished product is. The pictures are brilliant and everyone is impressed at how they got through so many pics so quickly. The pictures tell the whole story of our day and will be a cherished memory for many years to come.

If your thinking of using Jeff & Sarah it will be the best decision you make. Very friendly, personable, professional and efficient with pics returned very quickly in time for xmas.

Liam and Jaime

Did our summer wedding at Leeds Castle. Great to work with and the results are outstanding. Listened to what we wanted and built a collection of amazing photos that we will treasure forever. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Jeff and Sarah

Joanne and Chris

Thank you so much to Jeff and Sarah for capturing better photos of our big day than we could ever have wished for! Each and every shot is completely perfect and looking at them makes us relive every moment as nothing was missed. You both made everything so easy and enjoyable for us and what a lovely couple too….we hope that you have as brilliant photos of your wedding as we do of ours! xx

Amiee and David

Jeff and Sarah photographed our wedding day on the 14th June. The pictures they took were beautiful and captured our special day perfectly. Not a moment was missed and looking back over the photos help us relive every moment of the day which was so magical for us. Jeff and Sarah are very friendly and made us feel comfortable always whilst with them. We would highly recommend them, Thank you.

Fabio and Ingrid

Jeff and Sarah created some amazing photos which translated into a fantastic wedding album that we will treasure forever and made our day that little bit easier as they are really lovely, warm and friendly people. Thanks so much and we would thoroughly recommend. Thanks, Fabio and Ingrid

Caroline and Richard

Jeff and Sarah photographed our wedding at Little Hermitage in August. We live in Australia so needed a photographer who was flexible, understanding and trustworthy. Jeff and Sarah proved to be all of those things and thankfully excellent with a camera too! Our photos are beautiful and our album is simply stunning. They were easy to work with and understanding of our individual circumstances. If only everything about planning a wedding 16000kms away was as straightforward as working with Jeff and Sarah has been. Thank you

Laura and Mark

Thank you so much Jeff and Sarah for photographing our wedding in July, the photographs are truly beautiful! We would highly recommend your services! All the best Laura and Mark Brickell xx

Vicky and Marc

My husband and I live in Cornwall and Jeff & Sarah were our amazing wedding photographers back in September. Having never photographed a beach wedding before, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about not choosing a local photographer, but after admiring my sister’s wedding album, shot by Jeff & Sarah, I couldn’t resist and took the chance…..one of the best decisions of my life! Photo’s are out of this world, me or my husband couldn’t be happier with their services! Beautiful photo’s, friendly people and by far outstanding effort in making our day simply the best! Thank you so so much! :o) xx

Jenny and Abdul

I could write a novel and I am not convinced I could do Jeff Oliver Photography justice. Right from the very outset they treated us with an unbelievable amount of care. They proved that they are beautiful people inside out. They understood our every need and made every endeavour to accommodate us. As for the quality of their work, nothing short of magic; sheer brilliance. Moments they were able to capture for us from our special day that we will forever be in their debt. I cannot praise them enough. And looking forward, we now need look no further for the times we would like to capture family moments because in Jeff and Sarah we can count on. Jeff and Sarah Oliver are the epitome of the goodness we as people should strive for; honest, kind and caring. Incredibly talented, hard working and sincere are Jeff and Sarah. God bless. xx.

The details

Timeline of your day
We help you plan the events of your day to ensure their is enough time for photos.

Shot list
We will send you a template shot list to help you tell us the family photos you would like. For some couples these photos are an important part of the day, for others they would rather more natural photos so the group list is kept quite small. We will discuss with you your preference and timings.

Pre-wedding call, just before your day to finalise details
Some couples book their wedding photography with us up to 2 years before their wedding day, so times and details may change. We go through all the details and timings before the wedding day to ensure we have all the current information.

Your wedding day!

We will be with you for your bridal preparations two hours before you are due to leave for your ceremony. This gives us time to photograph the details, like your shoes, dress, flowers and to capture the finishing touches of your hair and make up.

During the ceremony we try to be as unobtrusive as possible and capture events as they unfold. After your ceremony we give your guests time to congratulate you and enjoy drinks before moving into the family photos.

We try not to take you away from your guests for too long to take photos of just the two of you, so with this in mind we spread your photos throughout the day. This way we get to make the most of the changing light.

Throughout the day we are always capturing moments between you and your guests, often the moments you don’t see!

We take our break while you and your guests are eating, after all no one wants photos with their mouths full! We photograph the speeches, then our coverage continues until your first dance, after that we leave you to dance the night away.
