Helen Johnson

Thanks for stopping by to say hello! Married with two children, my life outside of work revolves around my wonderful family and the outdoors. When I'm not photographing weddings, you'll find me in the hills, on my bike or in the kitchen baking something tasty! I'm lucky enough to call two places home, Kenya and England, and love photographing weddings in both locations (and everywhere in between!).


I started photography as a child - I loved taking pictures of the animals and landscapes I saw on my weekend trips away growing up in Kenya. First with a little cheap Kodak film camera, then someone very close to me let me use her manual SLR where I took my first "proper" photographs. I then stepped more into wildlife and sports photography, before becoming a wedding photographer over 10 years ago. You can have a look at some of wildlife, landscape and sport photography here


If you're wondering what "ASILI" in Asili Photography means, it's a Swahili word meaning "new beginnings" and more simply, love. I am proud and feel very lucky to be a part of your new start in life as a married couple; it means the world to me.

I can't wait to talk with you about your wedding or engagement!


Some of my favourite things...

watercolour wedding




Helen is a brilliant photographer and helped create a beautiful selection of photos for our wedding! She was really helpful, friendly and organised. She put us at ease on the shoot and was super professional and passionate about her work!


Helen is the most amazing person ever. She photographed our wedding to perfection. Helen is so helpful and know exactly what shots will work and how to make things look as natural as possible. Throughout the day and night she took amazing photos of our guests while hardly being noticed. We can't thank her enough and if you need a photographer look no further.


We can't recommend Helen highly enough. Absolutely stunning and natural photos that captured the real us. Helen is also lovely which made the whole process a delight.
