How we do things
We’ve always gone with our heart, with what felt right to us.
Weddings are such personal events. You put so much energy into the planning and you’re surrounded by those you love.
It seems obvious to us that that wedding photographs should be equally personal, to have substance and meaning.
A bit of honesty and relevance is needed- a bit of heart and soul.
Because of our experience and the way we observe, compose and capture, our wedding photography has a tangible sense of feeling. Most of our pictures are spontaneous and inspired by the moments unfolding in front of us and the surroundings they take place in. The light, the shade, the emotions., the context. There’s no pre-conceived shot lists or ticking of boxes. We’d rather keep things fresh, classy and unobtrusive.
Even when we take you off for photos alone, we really encourage you not to think about the pictures, but to just be yourselves and enjoy the time together.
THE TWO OF US
We photograph weddings together – a husband-and-wife team.
We come as a pair as a standard, not an optional extra – and have worked this way since we first started in 2007.
We each have our own way of interpreting what we see. Sarah’s feminine viewpoint is often quite different to Rob’s, but our work gels together extremely well to provide a fabulous variety of images.
Because we’ve always worked together, we tend to instinctively know where each other will be and the kind of pictures they’ll be getting. 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’.
There’s parts of the day where we work together, allowing two angles on the ceremony, the speeches and the creative input of both of us during your couple shoot. For other parts of the day, we’re completely separate, capturing both of your morning preparations and the myriad of other moments taking place during the day.
We’re two pairs of eyes and two creative minds but we’re very much a team effort.
If you haven’t already seen it, crank up the sound and go full-screen. Let our introductory photofilm show you what we love about a wedding day:
The big things,
the little things
The big things,
the little things
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 as the vows are exchanged. 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 sultry warmth of a summer evening.
These kinds of things aren’t planned and aren’t on the schedule, but they form the living, beating heart of your wedding and these are the things we love to capture in our images.
The two of you
The two of you
A chance to get away from the crowd and create gorgeous pictures of the two of you is a highlight of the day. By keeping this time private, relaxed and quiet, we can give you a little breathing room while we make lovely images – a chance to be yourselves and enjoy the quiet time together.
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’.

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.
We’re both Midlands born-and-bred and we’ve been a couple since 2004. We started photographing weddings professionally in 2007 and we got married ourselves in 2011. Weddings are our full-time business and we love it! 🙂
We like the finer things in life, such as travelling, walks in the woods, hiking up hills, good films and curry. Especially curry.
We have two very cute dogs who we often bring with us on photo shoots. We won’t bring them to your wedding, but they did come to our own!
Our work is featured on English Wedding Blog, Boho Weddings and So You’re Getting Married We’ve also been in Your West Midlands Wedding magazine and we’ve even made the cover!
