About Barney Walters Photography
The best way to tell a story is to of lived it, breathed in, been involved and witnessed it all from the inside. I don’t intend on being just your ‘wedding photographer’, I hope to become more than that, to witness and record your day from the inside. To experience it as an insider, not an outsider looking in.

Destinations I Would Love to Photograph
I rarely photograph a wedding at the same place twice, the process of exploring new areas and bringing a fresh set of eyes to a new location is highly valuable in my opinion. I don’t want your day to become a routine, I want much more than that for you, your day and our brief adventure together.
Whether your wedding is taking place 5 miles or 5,000 miles from where I live, I will arrive with the mentality of recording every moment I can, maximizing the strengths of your day and aiming to achieve a collection of images you will treasure.
High on my to-visit list is; South Africa, New Zealand & Canada.
My Style of Photography
Connecting with people, seeing the world and telling stories along the way. For me, this is an inspiring and self-motivating way to live - and it’s a crazy idea that I get to do this by documenting weddings and calling it my ‘job’.
Exploring new ideas, making connections and treating every wedding as an adventure, is how I become involved in the narrative of a wedding and never detached from it. Seeing things from the inside, results in what I hope is a very honest and emotive way to tell a story.
My passion for photography, travel and communicating stories only increases when surrounded by people who are also passionate and openminded about life and the possibilities of their wedding celebrations.
If you are reading this, hopefully you are such a couple; looking for someone to document your day, record those all-important moments which will become triggers for your memories for many years to come, whilst perhaps even making a new friend in the process.
Why I Love to Shoot Destination Weddings
Traveling near and far to meet and connect with couples and tell their stories is such a rewarding experience and probably the reason I have never really wanted to do anything else, (except maybe a pilot when I was a teenager). When at a wedding, I love absorbing all the social connection that unfolds. There are so many stories to be told within one event and as your ‘photographer’ or ‘guest with a camera’ I will be looking around to maximize every last minute.
Meet Your Wedding Photographer
I live between England & Spain with my long term girlfriend, Poppy, and I am always looking for an adventure and a reason to travel. When not doing something wedding related, I’m likely planning my next trip abroad, skiing in the French Alps, scuba diving in the nearest sea or simply drinking coffee.
