Amanda & Hutch

Amanda Karen Photography is made up of a husband and wife team who love to shoot fine art Essex wedding photography and beyond! Amanda and Hutch met at University and really developed our passion for photography when we moved to London in 2008, although it was always there as a hobby! The business was born in 2014 and we have been blessed with gorgeous clients ever since!


When Hutch isn’t behind the camera he is likely to be chilling out with friends or family.  H’s also pretty into his sports, from ice hockey to cycling and is definitely partial to a Bourbon or two!


Amanda, loves escaping into a book, lives on peppermint tea and loves going out for cocktails with the girls! She is a HUGE fan of Cox & Cox, The White Company, Oliver Bonas and Zara!

Together we are decorating our new (ish) house to create our beautiful home and we have definitely got the bug for decorating (well, I have!)  Spending time together is important to us and it’s about making our own memories, whether that’s a relaxed evening in with a film or our latest favourite TV series or exploring London and finding new places to eat.

About Our Fine Art Essex Wedding Photography Style

As mushy as it sounds, a wedding for us is about telling the greatest love story, your story to be precise.  Our photography is all about capturing the moments as they unfold and preserving that emotion for generations to come. It’s why our style is a blend of natural, unobtrusive candid photography and fine art style portraiture.
Take a look at our portfolio and you’ll see, light is so important to us and is what provides that romantic feel to our images.

Amanda has been known to squeal at beautiful light (that time just before the sunsets when the light is golden is dreamy!) and show her a shabby/industrial looking wall or door and you can guarantee she’ll be doing a little happy dance! (Hutch isn’t the squealing sort!)

Running the business together really plays to our strengths and it’s because of this we are a true team and partnership both behind the scenes and on the shoot/wedding itself.
