Will Stedman


Will is a professional wedding, lifestyle, and commercial photographer based in Surrey, UK.

Photography has always been a keen interest throughout his life since picking up his Granddad’s film DSLR in his early childhood. After leaving school he started his own business and grew a portfolio of commercial work, getting assignments from large companies such as Wagamama, Talkback Thames and Freemantle Media, photographing everything from large scale advertisements to headshots of staff. He was then approached by a friend who asked him to photograph a wedding; from there he found the love of using imagery to tell a story. He has since gone on to become a widely renowned wedding photographer, photographing weddings all over the world from the Caribbean to Central Europe.

His overall goal in photography is to be bold and exciting and create imagery that evokes raw emotion through capturing authentic moments without looking too far from reality.


One of my goals when capturing any imagine is to create that ‘wow’ factor that blow people’s minds

I love the fact that Sony’s cameras allow me to capture everything with the highest detail possible with the smallest size camera. Gone are the days of my entire body aching after holding a DSLR for 16 hours a day.”
