“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” – Ansel Adams

If we had to put a label on it we’d describe our style of wedding photography as creative reportage. We use available light whenever possible and avoid awkward unnatural poses, fake smiles and anything too staged and cheesy. We adapt to the ever-changing environment, using it as inspiration and with a sense of fun we employ a ‘fly on the wall’ approach to capture the action as it unfolds.
Don’t worry we’ve got the group shots for your grandma’s mantelpiece covered, but as a rule we try and keep the ‘formals’ to a minimum because well, thats no way to spend your wedding day! Instead we use that time to sneak you away from the crowds for a bit of time out together, we’ll take some relaxed shots of just the two of you, enjoying the post ceremony excitement. We are the antithesis of bossy old-fashioned wedding photographers. We won’t get in your way or order you around but we will direct you when you need us to (we want to avoid those scared ‘rabbit in the head lights’ expressions that tend to come out when lenses are pointed). We think your photo’s should be works of art and your wedding should be fun and hassle free. We work with you both before and during the day to make sure of both. ”
“The photos are absolutely fantastic!! We couldn’t have hoped for a better set of photos. We’ve seen so many wedding photographers who are either totally anonymous or completely in the way and the two of you managed to do an amazing job without doing either.”

“I met a lot of photographers and really right from the start you guys were the only ones I really liked. You connect so well with people without being pushy about your style or the way you do things. The photos are amazing – Thank you”

“You’ve really captured the emotion of the day – they are amazing! Really special. We were up past midnight going through them, it took us two hours!”
