I've been working with and getting to know Reena and Jay for quite some time now and I won't forget their incredibly quirky engagement shoot in East London's Lounge Lover bar for quite some time! I didn't think it could be topped in terms of colour and vibrancy but how wrong was I?
Their wedding events - just a couple of days apart and both in London, were incredibly rewarding to document. I've captured some of my favourite and possibly some of my most powerful Asian documentary wedding photography to date, particularly on their second wedding at the RNB venue in North West London.
I shot this wedding on my own which is often the way I'm commissioned; there are pros and cons to shooting alone or as part of a team and it is an ongoing debate between wedding photographers. But for the majority of big Asian weddings, which often have ceremonies in separate locations simultaneously, two wedding photographers are absolutely essential. It makes complete sense to us to provide our couples with a film crew that we know we work well and have a vested interest with.
I have so many favourite reportage wedding photographs produced whilst working with Jay and Reena, below are just a few; a glimpse into this colourful, vibrant and emotionally charged London wedding.

We are so grateful to have found such a great photographer! Allister has captured such a beautiful memory of our wedding that has surpassed our expectations. They capture such true emotions of the day that they had my wife in tears at our preview.. the happy, funny, exciting and sad moments will remain part of us forever.
Allister is such a pleasant, genuine and super talented guy that we instantly warmed to. His reportage/documentary style enabled him to blend into the background and take some amazing natural shots, never intruding at all on what was a very hectic jam packed day.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so so much for all your time and effort. We thoroughly have enjoyed the time we shared with you.. it’s been an absolute pleasure!
