Meet Me!

Hey! I’m Oliver & here’s my story.
5 years ago, I was in your shoes. Planning my own wedding with my wonderful Wife, Xenia. Like you, we researched, we planned and we hoped that everything would come together on our day. We didn’t want to spend the day worrying and certainly didn’t want to worry that the little moments, the moments that we will look back on and cherish, weren’t getting documented. Wedding photography, therefore, became one of our top priorities and something that we were focused on getting right.

Thankfully, we found the perfect wedding photographer for our wedding.

I can’t remember all of the little details from our day, but I do remember that our photographer was a genuinely chilled out guy who didn’t let anything phase him throughout the day and the memories that he captured for us allow us to look back on our day with so much joy and happiness.

It was our search for our photographer, that got me interested in doing wedding photography myself. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos of people, in fact I’d say it’s my favourite subject matter! I’m often seen in social situations with my camera and it brings me so much happiness to give people photos that they either weren’t expecting or had no memory of me taking.

It was this that led me into pursuing wedding photography. I wanted to be like our own wedding photographer. Allowing you to enjoy your day, with a chilled out vibe and knowing that I will capture everything for you, so that you can look back on your day with joy and happiness.

So that’s me, I’m Oliver Ballard, a wedding photographer based in Oxford!
