Meet The Photographer

On this photo shown London wedding photographer Alexei Wells


My name is Alexei. I am a wedding and elopement photographer living in the heart of London and capturing weddings all around the world.

Here I will write a few more sentences about myself, my values and interests that you might find interesting:

• I am a founder of the “Modern Documentary” style of photography.

• I came from a marketing background, but as a person who has been passionate about various art forms since childhood, back in 2015 I made a life-changing decision to pursue a career as a full-time photographer. I haven’t looked back ever since.

• For me, photography is a lifestyle. Being able to tell a story through a series of photographs is something that drives me and brings a lot of fulfillment. I finally have a sense that I am in the right place in life.

• While 80% of my focus are weddings, I am also providing commercial photography services for creative agencies, production companies, businesses and brands. I believe that these two complement each other and can bring different perspectives and vision to one another. This is my commercial website: https://alexwellsphotography.com/ 

• Consider myself a curious person, who always learns something new. Books and meaningful connections are some of my best teachers.

• Obsessed with psychology, sociology and philosophy.

• Addicted to trying new experiences. Whether it’s a diving class, a new theatre play, solo travel to an exotic country, fine dining or a meetup event with an inspiring group of people – I am up for it!

• Like thriller movies with unexpected endings.

• Big fan of computer games that could be presented as a work of art ( combination of storyline, art and music ). Some of my favourites are: The Elden Ring, Disco Elysium, Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher, World of Warcraft, Bioshock, Crash Bandicoot and It Takes Two.

What can I offer as a photographer?

  • Passion

    I have a deep passion for capturing love stories and preserving cherished memories. Passion drives me to go the extra mile and continuously improve my skills. For me photography is not a job - it's a lifestyle.

  • Professionalism

    I value professionalism in all aspects of my work. This includes maintaining clear communication with the couple, arriving on time, dressing appropriately and conducting myself in a respectful and courteous manner.

  • Creativity

    I believe in bringing a unique and artistic perspective to capture memorable moments. I constantly seek new ideas, experiment with unique angles and find innovative ways to tell the couple's love story.

  • Emotional Intelligence

    Weddings are filled with emotions and it's crucial to be sensitive, empathetic and understanding. I aim to connect with the couple and their guests, making them feel comfortable and relaxed, allowing me to capture genuine and heartfelt moments.

  • Adaptability

    Weddings are dynamic events and I believe in importance of adapting to changing situations. Whether it's different lighting conditions or unexpected changes in the schedule, being flexible and focused ensures that I can capture every important moment.
