About me

My name is Nicholas Lau and I am a lifestyle and wedding photographer. I live in London, but can travel world-wide for assignments. I first started photography during my studies to become an accountant and since then it has developed into a lifestyle. When I am not being an accountant, I will spend my spare time taking photos of the little things that occur around me in my life.

"We recently used Nicholas as the photographer for our wedding day, and we are very happy indeed. He's a lovely mix of relaxed and unobtrusive on one hand and diligent, highly skilled and hard working on the other. This means that he's able to capture everything in exactly the way we asked without anyone noticing his presence, beyond the formal photos we asked him to do. He allowed us to get on and to enjoy the day both on our wedding day and through the photos for the rest of our lives. We have ended up with the most beautiful set of photos of our special day. We would certainly recommend him to everyone."

James Pitt

“Thank you Nicholas and Megan for capturing our engagement and summer wedding; we love the way you captured the light in ours photos and the video was the icing on the cake. For those who are about the tie the knot, it is really worth hiring a quality photographer and videographer for your special day; there are moments outside the joy, laughter and happiness that are damn right stressful; knowing you have quality professionals capturing your day gives you the peace of mind that you will get quality photos and video which you can cherish for the rest of your lives. If you are looking for quality professional photographer and, or videographer, we would highly recommend Nicholas Lau Photography."


“My husband & I wholeheartedly recommend Nicholas as a photographer. His work is not only visually beautiful but also romantic and very much captures the emotions of the day. Nicholas listens to you and works diligently throughout. We look at our wedding pictures and remember the celebration it was and will always be thankful to Nicholas."

Christina Zhao

"I was so glad to have Nick as our photographer for both our engagement shoot and wedding photos. I love his style of photography and he has a great eye for capturing the moment. Not only that but he is reliable and super attentive to his client's wishes. Although our wedding was abroad, and wasn't the most convenient of situations, Nick was a professional all the way. Our photos turned out beautifully, and even after 2 years, they still bring back wonderful memories 🙂 Thank you Nick!"

"Worked with Nicholas to take portraits and collaborated on lifestyle photos. He is very professional and easy to work with. Plus he is also good at suggesting poses and letting people get comfortable in front of the camera."


"detail has really shown in our photos - they are perfect. The shots, the angles and the editing is spot on exactly how we wanted it to look. Nicholas and his assistant worked super hard on the day, they went above and beyond our expectations. We let him use his own initiative for most of the day, rather than telling him what photos we wanted. He knows how to capture unplanned moments perfectly, which gave such amazing results. Our pictures look like they should be in a magazine, his edits are fantastic. He’s also a very nice guy, polite, punctual and communication was brilliant - don’t hesitate to use him!"


"Nicholas is an outstanding photographer with reasonable price and good work ethic. He is very professional and good at using natural light together with composition, which makes hes photos unique and heart capturing. He is an easy going photographer and fun to work with."

Nigel Wong

"We could not have been happier with our wedding photos and thank Nicholas for capturing the joy of our wedding day so well. They are unlike any other wedding photos I have seen - the quality is perfect, the colouring beautiful and the poses are imaginative. There is an excellent balance of candid and more posed shots. Nicholas is reliable and very thorough; prior to the day we talked about the kind of poses and photos we liked and he did just as we asked. We had the rainiest of days and were worried how the photos might turn out but you could never tell from the photos. I couldn't recommend Nicholas more highly and everybody has commented on how perfect our photos are. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Amber Fuller

"When we first started to search for a photographer in UK, Nicholas' works caught our attention. We really love his style and the quality of his photos. We enjoyed the entire photoshoot session. Nicholas was professional and organized. He is able to capture photos from a unique and beautiful angle. The day of our shoot was rather gloomy, and the place we picked were crowdy, yet the photos turned out to be really great, we love them so much! We highly recommend any couples who wish to take their photos in UK to engage Nicholas, we're sure that you will not regret!"

Junbo Cao

"Nicholas recently photographed for our wedding, we chose him because we liked his style and artistic view to the photos he has previously done...he definitely delivered and captured spectacular moments of our day. What we loved most about him is he had a clear vision and managed to encapture all the little details without us even realising. We didn't feel like we missed any of our day as he made it completely effortless and really didn't miss a thing. We highly recommend his services and have a tough job now to decide which ones to frame!"

Leah Bastienne

"Nicholas recently photographed both our engagement shoot and wedding day for us and he perfectly captured every moment of our special day. The pictures turned out perfect and we particularly loved his eye for perspective and use of delicate lighting in capturing our special day in an artist yet beautifully balanced way. The picture quality is beautiful with use of soft enhancing colours and light and we could not have been happier with our stunning wedding photos. Nicholas is very reliable, attentive and easy to work with. Thanks so much for spending so much time with us and delivering a set of timeless photos."

Kit Cindy

"Nicholas perfectly captured every little moment on our wedding day. Reliable, attentive and incredibly easy to work with, his passion for photography shows in his beautiful work. We have received a lot of positive feedback from friends and family regarding our photographer and photos. Thank you for being amazing at our wedding and capturing exactly what we hoped for."

Yee Tang

"We were so glad to have Nicholas covering our wedding. He was very professional and a joy to work with. As I do know a little bit about photography, I have made it known what we were looking for in advance and he duly delivered on our big day. To be honest I didn't need to give much guidance as his style is suited for weddings. It leans more towards the artistic/portrait style photography capturing expressions and those special moments. We have seen works from other photographer and his just stands out. He's passionate about photography, his attitude and the end product shows. His rates were very competitive out of our shortlisted photographers and we have already been recommending Nicholas to our friends!"

Drake & Karen

"My husband and I married in Ascot in October 2014 and had Nic do our big day photography. We have been recommending Nicholas Lau's photography services to our best friends ever since, and that can only be a good thing. From the beginning, Nic was very professional in offering us always prompt responses and advice. We had in fact had our engagment photography done by Nic nine months prior to our wedding day, and having met him for the shoot in January and seen the results, I was very comfortable knowing that he would have everything taken care of for us on our wedding day. This confidence in Nic and his work was one less (big) thing to worry about...and we are so grateful. Nic's style of photography was exactly what we wanted, with lots of natural light and great, simple but effective compositions. He captured all the moments from our wedding day so beautifully. I'm really glad we hired him because without him, I would have missed so much of what else we going on during the wedding. We are so glad we found him and are super happy with the results. We've had only positive reactions to our wedding and engagement photos thanks to Nic's great eye and skill. We are so glad to have chosen you, thanks again, Nic!!"
