About Hannah Bain the Photographer

My story


Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little about me and my route into photography. I am actually a designer by day, and photography has always been a hobby and passion of mine. It all started when I was a schoolgirl, and I learned the art of developing film and being able to manipulate light and shutter speed with an SLR. I loved art but photography just felt like magic to me. I loved that you could capture the moment there and then and would often sit for ages looking through photo books and albums piecing together stories of families. Through the years my cameras have changed and the developing tools have changed, but the fundamental foundations of photography have always stayed the same.


A keen traveler through my 20's I found photography was a great outlet for me to capture the beauty I was seeing and be able to share it with my friends and family back home. The more I would share the more I wanted to craft my skill and try to create pictures that I would want to put up on the wall.


I started to become interested in wedding photography after taking pictures at my friend's weddings but mainly after getting married myself. I realised how important it is to have your special day captured by someone who you would trust and get along with because they are going to be with you for most of this incredible day. I actually found my photographer years before as she photographed my sister's wedding, so I knew I had to have her again on my big day.


I genuinely love weddings. I love the whole atmosphere, I love watching the brides shining and the grooms well up. I think it is such a happy and joyous day, and really such a remarkable thing for a couple to do in front of their closest friends and family. So being a photographer at a wedding, you know that you have to both make the couple feel at ease whilst playing the vital role of capturing everything, so they are able to look back on a day that just feels like it goes too quickly.


When I’m not behind the camera, I’m either working my other job as a product designer (which I love) or I'm hanging out with my husband, son, and our little dog Edith who all mean the world to me. I am based in London, but have lived all over the world in the past which has helped shape how I see everything and open me up to other cultures.


I hope to get to meet you in person one day and capture the essence of your day for you.

I'm so pleased I chose Hannah to take our wedding photographs. She really understood the style we were after and even shared a Pinterest board beforehand - that not only helped us get on the same page but got us really excited about the wedding day. I didn't want to spend too much of the day having staged photos so Hannah just snapped photos quietly around us, capturing the laid-back and amazing day as it was unfolding. It was an absolute joy to relive the day when Hannah sent us all the photos afterward and I cannot wait to get them printed and framed. Thank you again, Hannah!"
