The Art of Storytelling in London

Priceless documentary style wedding photography in London. Candid, natural, unobtrusive photos

Creative Storytelling through Fine art & Photojournalism

“My photographs have always been defined by my love of geometry, composition and available light. I’ve spent my life seeking those decisive moments where the interplay of angles and lines come together within the frame. For me a photograph should always be visually stimulating but it must have the ability to take the viewer back to a past moment and evoke an emotional reaction.”

"There are literally no words to describe Panayis. After meeting with several photographers, he was the ONLY one my husband and I liked, besides the fact that he portfolio is exquisite. His professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative! This helped prepare for the big day, especially if you are unsure of how to 'act' in front of the camera. Panayis has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met, and I was absolutely honored to have him play such a large role in my wedding. I can't recommend him enough." Sara Girmay

"Panayis understands how to capture unique moments that surprise and delight. His energy, passion, commitment was unmistakeable; he was everywhere at the same time, unstoppable work ethic, always had fun and focus in his eyes. A real pleasure to re-presence our wedding day with the gorgeous, fun and atmospheric photos that he worked so hard at documenting. A wonderful and unique creative talent that’s very professional, he also made everyone feel very relaxed, playful and was a lovely guest to have on our special day. I would absolutely recommend him to capture the best bits of anyone’s event. The slideshow was wonderful with our bespoke music from our ceremony just added to the delight and memory of such a cherished experience and once in a lifetime moment. Thank you so much." Roger Udin

My goal is bold and simple. I want to tell your wedding 

story through compelling images 

that transcend wedding photography.



I’m Panayis, a UK based documentary wedding photographer based in London specializing in documentary photography, also known as photojournalism.  In the true sense of the word reportage, i am there to capture the whole story: the emotion; the mishaps; the guests letting loose on the dancefloor… Many of my photographs are taken on the fringes of the wedding; those moments which so many photographers seem to miss or don't look for. Every wedding day is different and these are the pictures which give each one its own identity and character. My skill set is based on our natural ability to capture defining moments and i approach each wedding with the sole intention of telling a 'day in the life' story of the wedding day with genuine, creative, and emotive candid photography. Before becoming a wedding photographer, I gained years of valuable experience as a photojournalist within several international newspapers (The GuardianVice-iDThe eye of Photography) where I photographed a full range of subjects (anti-racism campaign,  worldwide but in the same time many personal projects based in different social issues). 

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
