Authentic & Candid Wedding Photography

Hey! This is the home of Oscar LaVerde, a wedding photographer based in London Ontario!

If you’re here, we already have something in common – we both love candid moments and beautiful things.

This website is made of love –  from the beautiful couples and their incredible wedding pictures to the lovely families I’ve been lucky enough to photograph in all the weddings in London Ontario and the Southwestern Ontario region.

Most of the weddings I’ve been a photographer are authentic and candid; I use natural moments and don’t pose too much. I want to make the experience enjoyable for you and the story of your day as truthful as possible.

You deserve an unforgettable & truly meaningful wedding day.


My style of documentary wedding photography ensures my images will tell the story of your wedding in the way it actually was, and not in the way the photographer told you to look, pose or smile. Weddings don’t have to be formal or conventional, and neither does photography!


Too much formal photography breaks the flow of the day, I want you to enjoy your day fully knowing every precious moment is being captured.


I don’t interrupt the flow of the day, which means I won’t boss you around, or any of your guests. I’m always ready and looking for that perfect moment, punchline or unexpected show of affection.


Your wedding photos are bigger than just images, and they become even more important with time. Over the years, the dress, shoes, flowers or venue will all be forgotten. Now imagine yourself in 10, 20, 30 years from now, returning to your photos and every single time being able to turn time back again and relive those moments with the little people who have not even been born yet!

What is a documentary photographer?

A documentary or photojournalist wedding photographer is an artist with the skills to capture the story of your wedding day with images in a natural, candid and authentic form. With a documentary wedding photographer, you will remember your wedding in the way it actually was, and not in the way the photographer told you to look, pose or smile.

It is a professional photographer that captures candid, unposed moments that you will treasure forever, it’s all about telling the story of your day.


My photography style can be named wedding photojournalism, documentary wedding photography, or reportage wedding photography. Some wedding magazines describe it as storytelling photography.


However, I believe a documentary wedding photographer can include group, family and couple portraits, as long as they feel like part of the whole wedding story. In fact, I encourage you to find a special moment during your day for some beautiful portrait pictures in an editorial wedding photography style.
