Welcome to Harriet Buckingham Photography. I am a Kent based photographer with my own studio in Orpington and I work on location all over the UK, but especially in the south, including London, Essex, Sussex and Surrey.
Whether you’re looking for wedding photography that perfectly encapsulates everything you loved about your big day, precious newborn pictures, relaxed family photo shoots or professional corporate images , my aim is to always capture the essence of my subject matter in a warm, engaging, no-fuss way to give the very best results.
I love helping people to tell their stories through my portrait photography and work with a variety of clients on exciting projects, including:
Some kind words from clients
I am always so grateful to clients who feel moved to post a review about my photography work and their photo shoot experience. To save you time searching online, you can read what previous clients have to say in my reviews, below.
I was completely blown away by the images Harriet produced – My new website now has some slick, professional images that are already drawing people in to buy.
It was my Mums 70th birthday and I wanted to get her something that she could enjoy every day so booked a bluebell photoshoot. I definitely recommend Harriet, she has produced images that are quite breath-taking.
We have used Harriet for a number of photo shoots and I can highly recommend her services. Her attention to detail is fantastic and she has proven to work flexibility to meet our requirements.
We had the photographs for our website taken by Harriett and we are so pleased with the results. Harriett is very warm, friendly and professional, and had some great ideas.
What can I say, Harriet you are amazing, the photos you took of our family are just fantastic and everyone comments on them when they come over to our house. Thank you!
We had a lovely time with the whole family on a photo shoot in the bluebells. It was a 70th birthday present from my children and we have got a set of beautiful pictures that I treasure. The quality of the prints is amazing, like fine art.

My photography services
I’ve been working as a wedding photographer throughout Kent and the south east since 2005 and have had the pleasure of photographing ceremonies, services and celebrations of all descriptions, including:
- church weddings
- civil ceremonies
- interfaith weddings
- civil partnerships
- renewal of vows
If you’re looking for a wedding photographer who puts tremendous effort into capturing all those unique moments, both big and small, then get in touch. You can read more about my wedding photography here or call 07717 740 072 for a no-obligation chat about bespoke wedding photography packages.
Having photographs taken before the arrival of your little one is your chance to capture the love you feel for your unborn child… before life becomes too busy. The excitement and anticipation is evident at this precious time and mums-to-be look especially beautiful, so it’s a great opportunity to organise professional images as a reminder.
To me, maternity photography is so much more than ‘bump photography’ – it’s a time to focus on you and your blossoming family. In short, it’s a unique time in your life, and what better way to remember it than with beautiful images to treasure?
Newborn and baby photography
Newborn photography is a passion of mine. Childbirth is such an amazing achievement and those early days of your baby’s life are full of wonder and beauty, so it makes perfect sense to celebrate with beautiful images that capture it all.
The precious days of very early childhood whizz by and disappear in the blink of an eye – I know that because I’m a mum myself (in fact, taking photos of my own children is what inspired me to start a career as a photographer). So, don’t miss the opportunity to commit the gorgeousness of your tiny baby to memory with a newborn photo shoot that’s tailored to your personal tastes and your little one’s needs.
I’m happy to work from either my fully equipped, warm, comfortable Orpington studio or your home – and I understand that tiny babies have their own schedules, so I’m flexible, understanding and caring.
Take a look at my newborn photography and baby photography here or give me a call to chat about the type of images you’d like to achieve.
Family photo sessions make the perfect gift. I’ve worked with all kinds of family groups in a huge range of venues and settings to create relaxed, charming photos that everyone loves. And the results speak for themselves – browse some examples of my family photo shoots here.
Some couples like to document the magical time of pregnancy and start capturing those family memories early on with a maternity portrait photography session. These are increasingly popular and work really well, whether both parents take part or just the mum-to-be.
So whether you’re looking for a relaxed, outdoorsy family photography session – such as a woodland setting in spring with a blanket of bluebells as a backdrop – or a more formal photo shoot, I’m full of ideas to help you achieve the portrait you want, so do get in touch to discuss what would work for you.
Special occasion photography
Looking forward to an engagement party, retirement do, wedding anniversary or other big family event? Book me to capture all those special moments for you while you enjoy the celebrations and make memories with your loved ones, relaxed in the knowledge that you’ll have wonderful images to mark the occasion.
Take a look at a small sample of my special occasion photography here and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to see more examples, or discuss details of your event.
I provide photography services for companies and organisations right across London and the south east for all kind of purposes, including corporate headshots, team portraits, product images and operational shots, commonly used for:
- special events
- social media
- menus, posters, flyers
- product shots
Much of my work involves commercial photography for website designers who create content for businesses in London and the south east. You can read more and view some examples of my work here
Do get in touch to discuss how we could work together by dropping me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I don’t just take photographs of human family members – I’ve also got a portfolio of pet photography, too – because loved ones come in all shapes, sizes and species. I’m a big animal lover and am regularly commissioned to work as a pet photographer as well as creating wonderfully engaging images from my studio in Orpington.
So, if you’d like to capture the beauty and personality of a four-legged friend (or any kind of animal buddy) then take a look at my pet photography page here or get in touch to chat about how we can make this happen for you.
Do you have an event planned and need a commercial photographer to take the very best shots to reflect the occasion perfectly while blending in discreetly and not hindering proceedings? Event photography is something of a unique art form, and you need a confident, experienced and professional photographer, who is able to manage large groups of people, in order to get the very best images.
As a former event manager I understand your needs and have a wealth of experience of working as a business photographer at events in Kent, London and further afield. Awards dinners, business conferences, product launches… you name it, I’ve captured it.
