My name is Dylan Kitchener and I am a 30 year old wedding photographer living in Scotland and one half of Kitchener Photography (the other half being my super-talented and beautiful wife, Joanna).
I started photographing in Australia in 2008 when I purchased my first Nikon D90 simply because I’m a bit of a geek and a DSLR was a new thing to play with.
What started off as a curiosity, quickly developed into a passion and I haven’t looked back since. Today Joanna and I are fortunate enough to be photographing weddings around the United Kingdom and many other exciting overseas destinations over the next 12 months.
To me, each wedding day is a beautiful and unique cinematic story waiting to be told and that’s how I like to approach it. I love photographing weddings and honestly can’t imagine doing anything else now.
Gear-wise, at the moment I shoot with 2 Nikon D800 ’s usually with the Nikon 35mm f/1.4 and Nikon 85mm f/1.4 attached on each body.
I use the Nikon 35mm f/1.4 for the majority of situations during the wedding day and the Nikon 85mm f/1.4 (or Nikon 135mm f/2) for situations where I want to maintain some distance such as the ceremony or any other intimate moments where I don’t want to be too imposing.
The rest of my kit:
-My good-luck cap
-Nikon 50mm f/1.4
-Holdfast Money Maker camera harness
-Nikon SB-910 Speedlight
–Hama Lens Cleaning Pen
