How we do things
“Most of our pictures are spontaneous, inspired by the moments unfolding in front of us and the surroundings they take place in. The light, the shade, the emotions, the context'”
HEART & SOUL
Because of our experience and the way we observe and compose, our wedding photographs are full of sincerity and feeling. There’s no pre-conceived shot lists, no ticking of boxes and no cheesy contriving. We’d rather keep things fresh, classy and unobtrusive.
Most of our pictures are spontaneous. They’re inspired by the moments unfolding in front of us and the surroundings they take place in. The light, the shade, the emotions, the context.
A bit of honesty and relevance is what we strive for – a bit of heart and soul.
A HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM
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 worked together since the start, 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.

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.
These kinds of things can’t be planned and aren’t on the schedule, but they’re just as important.
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.
“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”
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!
