meet Yvonne


I’m Yvonne and I’ve been a keen photographer from a very young age. But my career path initially took me into the field of fashion, working as a model booker, and then onto the front line of investment banking as a derivatives dealer. It was in 2004 that I decided to follow my heart and establish YBPHOTOGRAPHIC.

I was born in Germany, then spent some time living in Indonesia, before finally settling in London which has been my home ever since.

My experience working in fashion helped train my eye for photographic composition, beauty and style, while the years spent in the frantic environment of the City dealing room, have taught me patience, calm and resolve in the face of drama and excitement – qualities which often come in handy on a wedding day!


thank you

I just wanted to thank you for being so fantastic on our wedding day.

Your direction and organisation of everyone was very much appreciated, and we are so so pleased that we chose you to photograph our day!

All our guests commented on how great you were, and how you clearly knew your stuff!

Outside work, I have to confess to a minor obsession with all things food and cooking related, especial baking sourdough bread (even before lockdown!). I love to cook for my other half and my friends, love to eat and love to read cookbooks, all accompanied by a nice glass of wine!

I’ve also been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel extensively, with and without my camera, in search of fabulous food, wonderful wine and scary sharks – yes, I’ve been a scuba divemaster too, and 25 meters below sea-level is my happy place. 

The last few years I have also really learnt to appreciate my garden and I’m hugely enjoying growing me own vegetables and flowers. But I’m so glad we’re back to being able to explore the world again.

My guilty secret is that I love pulp crime and legal fiction – so to switch my brain back on, I play bridge most weeks, and even enjoy the occasional pub quiz.

So that’s me. And now I’m looking forward to hearing about YOU and your wedding plans.


There is a lot of information on these pages, but the easiest way to find out why I am the best person to photograph your wedding is by getting in touch with me and having a chat.


we can’t thank you enough

We just wanted to say how absolutely thrilled we are with the photographs of the wedding. They are absolutely beautiful.

You were so focussed on the day on making sure we got the right shots and the right timings and we can’t thank you enough.

It was so great to have someone in charge and completely on top of things. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

Michelle & Alex
