Hello, welcome to O’Hara Photography, an award winning events and wedding Hull photographer. We believe that the best wedding photos aren’t the force posed, but the natural and real moments captured in time. We are a UK & Yorkshire wedding photographer, and we’ve been photographing weddings since 2009.

Documentary Wedding Photography

We don’t limit ourselves to a specific type of photography. We love what we do, and are always keen to provide our clients with their preferred style of photos. That said, if we were to claim a “specialty style”, we’d say it was documentary- candid and natural. Some call it documentary wedding photography, reportage wedding photography or even wedding photojournalism, it all means the same thing…you will barely notice we are there.

Our main aim with any wedding is to document the day, and all those timeless moments of joy. So whether you’re after traditional poses, or wish to be more casual or creative with your images, we aim to deliver in relaxed, unobtrusive style.

Wedding Day Storytelling

Most consider us as a Hull wedding photographer, but we also offer event, studio and portrait sessions. We’ve worked as event photographers for York Racecourse, The University of Hull and Tribfest, and are happy to meet clients on location for everything from newborn photos, charities, to family and portraiture.

We cater to all budgets- so you won’t need to break the bank! Our versatile wedding packages include short or full day coverage. So whether you’re having a small civil ceremony, or a larger one in a big venue, O’Hara Photography will be there to capture the story of your day.  You can view our sample portfolio for UK & Yorkshire wedding photographer to get an idea of our style.

Follow our blog to see some of our recent event, portraiture and wedding photography throughout Yorkshire and the UK.


At your wedding we like to mix in with the guests, almost ninja-like, to the point that you forget we have a camera.  By mixing in with the guests it means we can capture unique moments.   Our primary aim is to make everyone feel comfortable, and by achieving this means we will capture more authentic, candid and natural wedding photography.  This even applies to any portraits, groups or formals.  If wedding guests comment that we are friendly, approachable and unobtrusive then we did our job!

Hopefully by browsing through our website you will understand our style, and get a feel for our passion for wedding photography and photography in general such as events, charities and sports.

Wedding photography really has gone to a new level in recent years, with new high-tech equipment, cameras and creativity.  When we set out to be Yorkshire wedding photographers we knew exactly the style of photography we wanted, and that was to document a wedding practically from the start to finish. Your wedding day isn’t supposed to be a photo shoot, so there will be no forced-posed photos with us, unless asked to do so.


We always strive in our work to provide something special for all of our couples.  Capturing the little details or a split second moment that can be looked back upon in the future.  For us, nothing beats capturing the emotion and fun of the day.

We always prefer to meet up with our clients before the big day, and we don’t mind traveling to you, or if you’d prefer we meet with all of our clients in a little coffee shop here in our hometown of Hornsea…tea or coffee is on us!  If meeting in person isn’t really an option, we can communicate via email, text, phone call or even Facebook. Please view our frequently asked questions page if you’re still unsure.

good vibes

“Absolutely outstanding service from O’hara photography from start to finish! Brendan was amazing, he arrived early and we talked over what we wanted from our photos and he went above and beyond and captured everything exactly like we wanted! It was so nice to enjoy our party without worrying about taking our own photos and then to wake up the next day and have the photos already sent to me! Thankyou so so much we will be recommending you to everyone!” – Alice Lunn

“Brendan and Hollie were exemplary – from their contact in the lead up to the big day, to the way that they got along with guests, or blended in to setting – whatever was required at that moment. We have had so many compliments on photos that people didn’t know were even being taken – never intrusive and yet thousands of photos were taken. We’re so so glad we chose O’Hara Photography and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brendan and Hollie for future work. Thanks so much, both!” – Kayleigh and Matthew Ingham

“You guys have given us the most precious memories captured in the most natural beautiful way. I asked for double chins and dribbling prosecco, capturing those real smiles and true tears of happiness and you guys have gone above and beyond to give us the most incredible moments that we can keep forever. Both Brendan and Hollie made us feel relaxed and we’ve made some true friends for life! Their creativity can be seen in all our photos and you both worked so hard to get the photos back to us as quickly as possible.” – Bethan Marshall

We like to call ourselves photography storytellers. From events, portraiture or the grandeur of a wedding day. Documenting the key moments to the candid and natural scenes is our job, and we love nothing more.
