First let me say a huge CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement!! How did he pop the question?! Eeep wedding planning is all so exciting isn’t it!! Well, you have come to the right place, I LOVE weddings here at Indigo and Violet! 

My name is Jenny Ryan, I am an Award Winning Wedding Photographer based in Derby, providing creative documentary style wedding photography across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, South Yorkshire, Leicestershire, or anywhere else for that matter! ….If there’s cake, I’ll be there!

Documentary wedding photography, sometimes called reportage wedding photography or candid wedding photography, is a style of photography that prioritises recording the events of your wedding day in an unobtrusive manner.  For me it is all about telling the story of your day in a fun and relaxed way, so that your wedding day definitely will not feel like a photo shoot!

As a Documentary Wedding Photographer in Derby I specialise in honest, creative and unobtrusive photography, and I firmly believe that documentary style wedding photography doesn’t actually have to be all black and white gritty imagery, but beautiful and colourful too!

I will photograph your day in a way that reflects your unique style choices, capturing your incredible mix of anticipation, joy, laughter, emotion, love and friendship! Seeking out the real feelings of you and your guests my special skill is my pre-emptive instinct for what is about happen and being ready and waiting to catch it on camera. Connection, composition, and creativity are the most important things for me in creating a photograph that will blow you away! 

Have a little look around and see if you think I would be the perfect wedding photographer for you both and your special day. I can’t wait to here from you and start planning! xx

“As if the beautiful images aren’t enough, Jenny you have made our day so much sunnier with your lovely act of kindness”
“Well…it’s the week before our wedding and things have been really stressful after a couple of things consecutively going wrong…however, the lovely Jenny had taken the time to send us a beautiful pre wedding box of chocolates treats! It was so thoughtful and unexpected I burst into tears upon opening it! As if the beautiful images aren’t enough, Jenny you have made our day so much sunnier with your lovely act of kindness! We can’t wait to crack these bad boys open later! Thank you so much!”
