About Brian O'Carroll Photography

I grew up in London but I've been drawn ever more to the countryside, like the call of the wild. I've made it as far as the Chiltern Hills and the market town of Aylesbury, which is wild enough for me, my wife and my two daughters.

Photography was my dad's hobby and when he put a camera in my hands I took a picture from London Bridge of HMS Belfast. I came back to that camera over the next twenty years seeking subjects that were either 'beauty' or 'interesting' or actually 'meaningful'.

I was working with a ballet company as a set and lighting designer visiting 150 towns all over the UK when I moved to Aylesbury. I photographed dance with its drive for perfection of position and yearning to capture the beauty of a movement in a still image.

Whole wedding party photograph

Working in the performing arts gave my photography new purpose, taking photos of performers and live performances, product and commercial photography and weddings followed naturally. Therefore, when 2020 arrived I, like so many other people who had to be decisive about their future, chose to commit to Wedding photography full time.

It’s incredibly important for any couple on their wedding day to be supported by professionals who love what they do and give attention to detail, no matter how small.

It's a privilege to do this job: to record the magic in the moment to be treasured for a lifetime.
