“Your story, beautifully told”

Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad

Beautiful, contemporary, and creative documentary wedding photography

Hi, I’m Robin, a professional Dorset wedding photographer, based in Wimborne, but covering weddings across the UK and as a destination wedding photographer. Photography for me is a way of life, and what defines me, I love to tell stories with pictures. I am proud to think of myself as a craftsman with a camera, and capturing life stories is a real privilege.

If you have grand plans, or are planning a small and intimate wedding, or an elopement, the principle is the same, I work tirelessly to document the magic and emotion of your day. 

I would describe my style as primarily observational, with a sprinkle of creativity thrown in, to create epic and magical portraits when the opportunities arise. The key for me is using beautiful and natural light, and timing the moment perfectly when composition, light and the moment combine in perfect harmony – this is the the key to documentary wedding photography. I am a perfectionist, and whatever I photograph, either a wedding, a lifestyle shoot, food photography or a landscape, everything has to be perfect.  If you would like to find out more about my style, please pull up a chair, get comfy and have a good browse through my portfolio!

Whilst I’m based in Dorset, it doesn’t matter where you are, I will travel anywhere in the world to work with couples who love my style of photography.






Moments matter – taking you back to how you felt on the day

 Photography is an investment, one which will be passed down through generations. A camera is a tool, it is the photographer behind it that creates the magic. Choosing a photographer who takes photos you connect with is essential, so you know you will love the photographs.

For me, it is absolutely essential to get to know you as a couple so that I can bring out the best in you, so that when you get the photos, everything just comes flooding back.

When I photograph a wedding, all day coverage means just that, from dawn to midnight if required. It is your day, the story doesn’t finish at the first dance, and I believe your photo story shouldn’t either. I photograph quietly, though observation, not orchestration. On the day you will forget I am even there, so you can concentrate on enjoying the day, safe in the knowledge your story is being captured beautifully.

To see my favourite work, have a look through my portfolio, or have a look through the blog to see complete recent weddings!

There is so much more to wedding photography than the day itself

It’s about reminding you how it felt.


With photography that tells your story beautifully.

we cannot put into words how happy we are!”
