What Makes Us Unique
In a nutshell
Oi Oi, my name is Derek Anson; I'm an Essex based documentary wedding photographer. I capture the weird, the wonderful, and the beautiful at weddings of all shapes and sizes throughout this beautiful and peculiar tiny island we live on, but mainly in Essex and London. How a moment felt is more important than how it looked, so capturing the feel of an occasion is the goal, not just a record shot of how pretty it was.
Why do you want to work with LGBTQ+ couples?
Love is love is more than a slogan to me. Whether my couples are of the same sex or not is not what gets me excited. What's important to me is my couples are madly in love, and they are surrounded by those that care and love them and, of course, like to party!
What is your creative approach to weddings?
I'm more hands-off, I like to capture moments as they happen, I don't dictate events or stage situations. I don't have "must have" photos, I'm all about the in-between moments; I love touchy-feely people who aren't afraid to show their emotions and express themselves. Plan and live your day and I'll do the rest.
What do you love about what you do?
In a nutshell, starting the day as a stranger and finishing as a friend. When I think about what I do, and the trust my couples have in me, I'm blown away, well it's rediculous really. I have an access-all-areas pass on the wedding day, I get to see more special loving moments than anyone else. What I love most is normally the speeches, getting to know some details about my couples that I wouldn't have known is brilliant, especially if the stories have them squirming with embarrassment!
