Full Description
We are a full time wedding photography studio based in Southend on Sea in Essex from where we cover weddings across the entire south-east region and further afield. We are proud to have our wedding photography in Essex published in numerous magazines and publications. We are also award winning wedding photographers having secured the accolades of photographers to “Your London Wedding” magazine’s Wedding of the Year 2013 and then again to “An Essex Wedding” magazine’s Wedding of the Year 2014. Our commitment is to provide total quality from the initial client consultation through to the delivery of outstanding wedding photography and wedding albums or Wedding Books as we prefer to call them. Our wedding photography is all about capturing moments, timeless moments that will live in the memory of the bride and groom and their families. It’s also about the emotion of the moment, the moment when the camera shutter opened. This, for us, is the very essence of beautiful wedding photography. We aim to create magical wedding images. Images that are relaxed, romantic, emotional and full of memories. We aim to make your wedding photography enjoyable, easy and as relaxed as possible and we want your images to bring back fantastic memories of your wonderful day, to make you laugh and cry and to relive those magical moments together and with friends and family. We fully understand that choosing a professional wedding photographer for one of the most important days of your life is a huge decision. Our commitment to every client is that we will deliver an outstanding collection of wedding images from the big day and give great service at a great price. Finally, we really want to develop trust and a positive working relationship with all of our clients. In this way we can work together to create great images. In the words of a famed photographer, Alfred Eisenstaed, “It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter”. We fully buy into this.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Too many memorable weddings to single out just one. It's people that make memories and while lovely venues help It is always the people that count.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Modern, classic, fashion, stylish and emotive

What about your business are you most proud of?

Our absolute commitment to consistently delivering outstanding imagery and great customer service.

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

Always choose professionals for your wedding and always choose quality over price. Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime day.

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

So difficult this one but we absolutely love choreographed dancing by the bride and groom for the first dance.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We work so closely with the couple before the wedding day so that on the big day we are as unobtrusive as possible. So ideally we love it when couples say things like "we can't remember that" or "we didn't know you had got that moment".

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

The image of them together looking at each other and letting their eyes say those magical "I adore you" words. Sorry if that's sentimental but it is how we see things.

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

Walking along a beach just in the water and smiling at each other.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Rain is never a problem and we can be creative with rainy days. Apart from having brollies available we can use rain to dramatic and creative effect without getting the bride and groom drenched!

Describe how you got into photography.

As an ex semi-professional footballer I started photographing sports. My interest in wedding photography was really born through photographing models in the 80s and 90s and discovering the beauty that images can deliver.
