About me - Luis Holden Photography

About Me
  • About Me

  • This is a little of my story.

    One of 4 close brothers, I was the one who always wanted a camera for Christmas - just as my daughter does now - and one year I was lucky enough to receive one. A little plastic film camera it was. Wish I still had it. It opened my eyes up to the world around me and gave me some amazing opportunities. I owe it back a fair bit.

    Along with photography I quickly garnered a passion for travel and just as I was about to start my 12-year adventure as a photographer in the Royal Navy, I met Sarah in my homeland of Norfolk. Sarah is my partner of 16 years, the love of my life and amazing mama-bean to my lil' sprouts.

    We are lucky enough to have two children - a boy and a girl; a pigeon-pair as we say in Norfolk. My gorgeous daughter Amelie and scamp of a son Rui. Amelie is the best big sister to her brother in the world, always showing her more mischievous younger brother Rui the right path. Rui is a red-topped ray of sunshine with an adventurous personality.

    Amelie is now lucky enough to own her own camera, Santa dropped it off last Christmas for her;)


My Approach
  • My Approach

  • I guess that I'd better say from the outset that I'm not a traditional-style photographer. I don't force moments. I shoot real life. No-holds-barred, evocative and amazing real life.

    I capture people being people, people being themselves. People and their personalities, quirks and all. Authentic stuff. I get to shoot all of this and I have to say, that I have an absolutely cracking time doing it.

    I love the out-takes as much as the key moments. The reality. The uniqueness. The humour. The fun. It's all good.

    I approach a wedding as I would personally like my own wedding day to be captured. Non-cheesy, natural and full of vibrancy and life. This is how I shoot. Take a look through my imagery if you get the chance. It's all genuine, all unforced, real life rules!


  • Location

  • I am based close to the city of Norwich in Norfolk, UK and shoot across East Anglia along with destination weddings worldwide.
