How we do things

Our Style

IMAGES THAT MATTER

Love, friendship, happiness, anticipation, nerves, joy, laughter.
Weddings are packed with wonderful things that make for wonderful images.
We capture them discreetly and artisticallydocumenting the moments, relationships and emotions we see through the course of the day.

With our extensive experience, we observe and capture our wedding photographs with empathy, honesty and context.    We strive to create pictures that tell a story, with strong compositions, and beautiful light.

We’ve never worried much about what’s trendy.  When deciding how to photograph a wedding, we’ve always gone with our hearts –  what felt right to us and what we enjoyed the most.

Let our introductory photofilm show you what we love about a wedding day.

The big things,
the little things

“It’s the fun, the joy and the warmth. It’s all the hugs, the laughs and the happy tears’”

Beyond the key chapters of the day, a wedding is living, breathing and ever-changing and we really love capturing smaller, less obvious moments.

It’s the fun, the joy and the warmth. It’s all the hugs, the laughs and the happy tears. The priceless look on a bride’s face during the vows. It’s the old friends catching up, the fleeting seconds of reflection before the ceremony, the anticipation. It’s as simple as the crispness of the flowers on a spring morning, or friends relaxing in the warmth of a summer evening.

The two of you

“a chance to be yourselves and enjoy the quiet time together’”

The couple shoot is a chance to get away from the crowd and is a highlight of the day. We really encourage you not to think about the pictures, but to just be yourselves and enjoy a bit of downtime. By keeping this time private, relaxed and quiet, we can give you a little breathing room while we make gorgeous images – a chance to be yourselves and enjoy the quiet time together.

ONE OF US, OR BOTH OF US

We offer the choice of photographing weddings with a single photographer (Rob), or having the two of us working together.

Which is the right choice for you?

Single photographer (Rob): Perfect for weddings where more of a low-key presence is required. If you’re not fussed about having both preparations photographed and would like your photography through the day to be a little more subtle this may be the right option for you.

Two photographers (Rob & Sarah): The choice for those who want the morning preparations covered from both points of view, two angles on the ceremony, speeches, the creative input of both of us during your ‘couple’ photos and generally more of everything. Our pictures complement and enhance the each other’s and because of this, what we offer really is so much more than just a ‘second shooter’.

Coverage

On full-day weddings we’re usually with you from getting ready until shortly after the first dance or beyond. However every wedding is different so we can always be there for longer if you like.

Group Photos

You want the a relaxed wedding but still need a few formal photos? Absolutely. By planning them in advance and keeping the numbers sensible, we can help keep everyone happy!

Yours To Share

We edit your wedding photos with lots of TLC and you can share and print them to your heart’s content. We will also include a little slideshow featuring the highlights of the day.

Albums

Albums are still the best way to present your wedding pictures. We have several different styles to offer, all with our full design service and fantastic quality.

Amazing Feedback

Over the years have received some really wonderful feedback from the couples we’ve worked with and it’s incredibly satisfying to read their testimonials.

We don’t use associate photographers so when you book us, you are hiring *us* – our personalities, our creativity and the joint experience we’ve built up together for over 10 years. You’re choosing the passion that we inject into our work and our untiring sense of ‘doing things right’.

Pre-Wedding Shoot

When we take you two off alone for the “couple” photos, we want to show you two as you are together. Our aim is to always try and get your personality to come through in the photos and for this, our optional Pre-Wedding Shoot is incredibly useful. It gives us chance to get to know you a little better. It also gives you chance to get used to how we work and shed any nerves or worries, so that on the big day, you can forget about the cameras and enjoy yourselves.
