What Makes Us Unique

In a nutshell

We have worked really hard over the past 8 years to build a highly respected and reliable business. I work with my second shooter at all weddings which enables consistency (i.e we aren't asking out on Facebook for any random who wants £150 that weekend and a free meal) and also have won the regional wedding awards for the past 2 years in a row - based on our couples voting for us. We pride ourselves on getting a lot of work from recommendation and our biggest chain has been 9 weddings from one couple. We are able to adapt to get your beautiful photos but in a  relaxed way - we know you want to look great and we can do that but we can also have a bit of a laugh at the same time. We don't sit in the shadows as lots of photographers claim to do - we will interact with your guests and have a chat just like we would anyone else when it's appropriate. This relaxes people and makes them feel more at home with us rather than being standoffish.

Why do you want to work with LGBTQ+ couples?

I find this quite an odd question in that - Why wouldn't we want to work with LGBQT+ couples?! Love is love regardless of what form it comes in and who you are attracted to. We have photographed several LGBQT+ weddings and would love to find some more couples who simply want to celebrate their relationship and get married without needing to be vetted due to whether someone does or doesn't have an opinion on their relationship.

What is your creative approach to weddings?

I love to get outside and get shots which include the scenery and yourselves. If you're at the beach then I want a long stretch of sand and sea with you walking along the beach and you might be a very small part of the landscape but it is you on your day and that can go on your wall or your mantle without anyone necessarily realising it's your wedding day til they have a good look. We get up close and personal too but I love to do a mix of everything. We do all photos in colour and black and white because I love the classic nature of black and white. Suddenly when you remove the colour the focus and feel of a photo can shift quite dramatically and you focus on what is the most important. It is utterly timeless, can look seriously classy and I just love that intake of breath I get when I see the transformation when the colour is removed.

What do you love about what you do?

Every wedding is different. Every venue is different. Every couple is different. Even the same venue is a totally different experience on a different day with different weather and a different couple with their unique combination of guests. It is both terrifying and exciting at the same time - even 8 years on I still find the butterflies kicking in the night before a wedding. It is such a lovely job to be sharing in people's happy moments and capturing it all for them.

What is included in the wedding package?

All our packages include unlimited edited images in both colour and black and white. Wit the exception of the essentials package which is fully digitalised you receive your images both in a n online gallery for easy viewing and sharing and on a personalised USB stick which comes in a lovely personalised presentation box. There are various options available so you can choose what box represents you and your wedding. Two photographers are included as standard in all packages as I couldn't be without my right hand man!

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

We can cater for a weekend event and are happy to quote for this based on your needs.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

We charge based on which parts of your day you are looking for coverage. We have packages for intimate weddings of under 30 guests and also offer essentials packages (ceremony, groups and couple)  with packages in between to right up to full day plus albums - your day your way.

Do you need specific materials or conditions to offer your service?

During peak season (April-Oct) we only book extended part day, full day and presentation packages on Saturdays over 6 months before the event.

What forms of payment do you take?

A Non-Refundable deposit is necessary to secure your date. This is normally £100-£250 depending on the package you book. We are happy to arrange a suitable payment date and split this if it makes life easier for you.

Payment is usually direct bank transfer or cash. We do occasionally accept card where necessary but charge the additional fees we have to pay for this.
