Full Description
Our journey with a couple usually starts with a consultation, where we get to find out more about you and your families, your likes and preferences. Hopefully, we will find that we are both a match. We recommend a pre-wedding shoot, usually about 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding, this is another step in getting to know each other better and to practice "walking and talking" at the same time :) On the big day, we arrive about 2 hours before the ceremony and stay with you until about an hour after the first dance. Every single image is checked and edited to a high standard and we are usually in a position to present the photos within 4 weeks after your wedding. We have a great reputation for being helpful, friendly and professional and feedback from our clients is exception. We love producing WOW images that will re-create wonderful memories of a magical day.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Lots of memorable ones from snowy to heatwaves. We've always had a good experience and our brides and grooms are really happy.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Velvety, Classic, Candid, Fun, Lush

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our relationship with our brides and grooms and their families in knowing that we help to make them happy.

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

Photographers can offer impartial reviews on Venues.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

A best man's speech, whilst humorous and joyful, but touched upon the attributes of the groom and explained his admiration and gave an insight on their friendship in a positive way.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We tend to keep in regular contact and share things, it always works well if the photographer knows who is who in the proceedings and also if there is anything to avoid. We include a pre-wedding shoot about 2 months before the wedding, which we always recommend, it's an opportunity to get to know each other even better.

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

A photo that captures a moment when they are on their own on the day, it could be a glance to each other or just giggle, where they do not know they are being photographed.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

We recently had a lush chocolate brown labrador as the ring-bearer, which was really good. The labrador was very well behaved.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Anywhere we can find a lovely big window then we can produce stunning shots, that said we always have umbrellas and rain-shots can with backlit flash can look stunning.

Describe how you got into photography.

I received camera for my 10th, 16th and 21st birthdays from my parents, so it has always been part of what I love, In the early days it was primarily landscapes, which helps with composition.
