Full Description
We are Helen & Noel, a married couple living in Braintree. We met online in 2002, back in the days of freeserve chat rooms and good old dial-up. We spent a couple of months talking online and then Noel travelled from Macclesfield down to Essex to meet face to face for my birthday weekend in The November. We hit it off straight away and quickly realised our shared passion for photography. I travelled to Macclesfield to spend Christmas with Noel, it was so hard leaving on Boxing Day, but I had to be back at work the next day in Braintree. Noel travelled to Essex again for New Year and made the move to Braintree in January. He proposed on Valentine’s Day and a year to the day when he first visited we got married. It was a wonderful day, filled with fantastic memories. We still look at our wedding photos and reminisce. Over the years we developed our skills mostly with wildlife and the occasional wedding or celebration for friends and family and realised we loved it ! There is nothing like the buzz of sharing and capturing the love on a wedding day. In 2016 we took the plunge, setting up H N Photography.Uk and photographed our first paid wedding. We have never looked back. Our wedding day was wonderful, but after several years of photography we have come to realise, if we could do it again, we would change a lot of things. We are not just photographers and turn our hand to many things on a wedding day, whether helping with ties or cravats, pinning on buttonholes or running minor emergency repairs to attire and accessories. We only met our photographer once before the day and although he did a great job we did not feel we knew him and were not completely at ease when being photographed. We have found that having several meetings with our couples, they are much more relaxed on the day and feel they can approach us for anything. Many of our couples have told us it is more like having friends at their wedding, not just being a hired photographer.

Simply THE BEST
Helen and Noel captured our Halloween Wedding at Gosfield Hall perfectly. They were there but not there, blended in with the guests and caught the most beautiful moments when we weren’t even looking. Having multiple camera’s meant that they split up and we had lots of photos from different angles They were also with us from start the finish, they had words of advice and managed to keep me calm before the big day. Noel even brought out his inner hairdresser helping one of the girls who’s hair wasn’t playing ball in the morning, I do believe there’s a picture of that moment too which is just wonderful. These guys are absolute perfectionists and know how to work their cameras with precision! As the title says they really are “Simply the best” I cannot recommend them highly enough

We couldn't have done it without them
Helen and Noel did our wedding photography for us. What a perfect couple to have doing our photography. From our first meeting to the day itself they where always on hand to answer any questions we had and to give us some ideas for photos. They where never pushy and stayed in the background but got some amazing pictures. The confetti and group photos were managed with little fuss and no boring stand around for ages waiting. An with two of them we got so many extra photos and different angles. Highly recommend these guys for your wedding.

Beautiful!
Helen and Noel were so professional. Although I would have preferred Helen to do my pre-wedding pictures. Saying that, we met with them many times and formed a brilliant relationship-which is so important.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

They are all memorable in their own ways, no one wedding is more special than another

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Friendly, unobtrusive, professional, natural, creative

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our ability to be professional, but still remain friendly and approachable.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Do what you can to accommodate your guests, but don't try to please everyone, otherwise you will end up with a wedding day that is nothing like you dreamed of or wanted. Stay true to yourselves and your wish list.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

An initial no obligation meeting to discuss requirements and show what we can provide to create a package individual to the couple. If happy, we then take a deposit to secure the date and sign contracts. A first detail meeting to start getting a basic idea of the format and timings for the day. Then a venue visit with or without the couple to assess lighting and best places for photographs. A final meeting two to four weeks before the wedding to finalise all the timings and collect final payment (if necessary). Attending the rehearsal if a church wedding. In between all this numerous emails between ourselves and the couple, specifically the bride to get dress details without the groom becoming aware of how she will look on the day to keep it a wonderful surprise for him on the day.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Since all couples and weddings are different, photography for each event is different. We do not have a set photo that is a must, we have many general ones we will take, but each wedding is individual and this is reflected in the photographs.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Do not panic ! We carry a large number of umbrellas in a multitude of colours, so as long as people are willing to be outside we can still get some amazing, fun photographs with the added injection of colour from the umbrellas. The venue or church are also usually decorated beautifully, so if indoor photographs are a must, there is still always a good background to utilise. If it is a summer wedding, the chances are it will only be a passing shower and we can always do outdoor photographs a little later if preferred by the wedding party.
