Full Description
We are Jonathan and Ruth, a husband and wife team with a love of weddings and photography! We are very privileged to be able to photograph people in love, whether a couple on their engagement shoot, a bride enamoured with her new husband, or the love that comes with little ones, families, and beautiful bumps. We create beautifully natural, timeless, luminous photographs, with a documentary style and most of all feeling. Our signature style is beautiful tones mixed with stunning natural light, which together creates timeless photographs that you and your family will cherish for generations to come. Our genre of photography is probably best described as a mix of documentary and 'fine art ', meaning we spend most of the time taking unobtrusive pictures of the day as it unfolds. However, we do offer gentle styling and guidance for certain moments, such as couple or group portraiture. Our photographs entwine seamlessly to create a story of your wedding day, in a way words just couldn’t. Our experience has enabled us to anticipate moments, allowing us to capture the joy, tears, hugs and laughs- the essence of the day. Our friends would describe us as happy go lucky, polite and sincere . We are extremely sociable with ability to build exceptional rapport with people from all walks of life, which is key in producing relaxed and emotive photographs. We are ‘people photographers’ and photographing people is our passion.​ We are based in Worcestershire, UK, but are available for both National and International weddings and commissions. Get in touch, we’d love to tell your wedding story.

Absolutely the best service. Wonderful couple covered my daughters wedding. Nothing was to much trouble and anything asked of them was delivered a hundred times better than expected. No hesitation what's so ever in recommending.

best value for money
Absolutely wonderful service. Both Jon and Ruth were fantastic. They were able to be there and capture every possible moment without ever being in the way, they directed without being pushy, collected everyone to save us the trouble and the final product of the photos were sheer perfection! All of this for a fantastic price. Without a doubt the best value for money both prior to the wedding day and afterwards. All we can say is thank you for enabling us to literally have a picture perfect memory of every moment of our special day.

Could not fault them
This company did my sisters wedding photographs and the photographs are just beautiful. Such lovely people to have been a part of the day capture their special moments. Barely knew they were there which is what ever bride needs. They went above and beyond!

Our beautiful wedding in the Worcestershire countryside
From our first meeting with Jon and Ruth at J Bidmead Photography, we knew our Wedding photographs were going to be gorgeous. They are such a lovely couple who were just so great during the lead up and on our Wedding day. Nothing was ever too much, they were both so easy to work with and Ruth, despite being heavily pregnant still managed to run around all day to capture some amazing shots. They have both captured all of the little details of our Wedding from start to finish, along with some beautiful portrait shots of us and our friends and family. We are so pleased that we picked Ruth & Jon as we now have our Wedding memories captures in stunning pictures. Thank you!
