About Wayside Photography

Hello! My name is Chris McGuigan and I am a portrait and wedding photographer in Ealing, West London. I founded Wayside Photography in Northern Ireland back in 2018 after I finished my studies and decided I wanted to do something a little different with my career. Fast forward several months and I found myself moving across the water to London to start a new chapter of my life.

I have been working professionally as a photographer for 6 years or more, starting out in the local pubs, clubs and music venues of Belfast, continuously developing my skills to become an all-round more versatile photographer. I love this job! It takes me amazing places and allows me to meet the most incredible people along the way.

My Style

My style can mostly be described as documentary. It is best to treat me like any other guest at your wedding, I show up in the morning with my camera, have a quick chat, and then let everybody go about their day as if I’m not even there. I like to capture the real, natural moments throughout the day, and I won’t interrupt these important interactions to put you in any cliched poses, that’s not my style.
Once we get the stressful part of the way, I like to give each couple an intimate photo shoot at a location of their choosing. This can be a great opportunity to get away from the crowds and just take a moment to yourselves and reflect on the day so far, and of course, create beautiful images at the same time. I also make sure to capture all the little details that have gone into making your wedding day unique to you, as well as take requests for any family and friends group photographs.
