About us and our natural Documentary Style of Photography

We are a husband and wife team who are professional photographers who shoot weddings, families and new borns.

We like to use a style called documentary wedding photography. It’s also know as wedding photojournalism. We love to capture those natural organic moments during a wedding, rather than the more traditional style of photography. We believe that capturing these more authentic moments during a wedding is more memorable and ultimately more rewarding. This candid style of photography is in our opinion more likely to be cherished by couples in the future.

Our experience ranges from small low-key weddings to large grand and more traditional weddings. We have covered Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Hindu weddings. We also cover same sex LGTB+ weddings.

We have covered weddings in UK, Mauritius, India, UAE and the Netherlands.

Please contact us today to organise a wedding consultation.

capturing your moments

Telling the story of your wedding is important to us. Our passion is to create photography that tells a story and captures that special moment. We want the couples on the other side of the lens to feel as comfortable and most importantly special on their wedding day. We also provide services for honeymoons, elopement weddings, family shoots and also photography for businesses.

Frequently asked questions

Below are question we are often asked. Please email us with any other questions you may want to ask.

The best style of wedding photography is candid which captures the natural reaction of people. Sometimes the best moments are those captured when you least expected it. These pictures are often the ones you will treasure the most. While there is definitely still a place for traditional wedding photography, candid is the more rewarding.

Depends how many hours you’ve booked for, but as a rule 60-100 per hour. For an 8 hour wedding, you can normally expect around 400-800 photographs. This is generally the rule, but some photographer may do more or less.

Yes we provide wedding albums, they come with unique covers, designed by us. Please contact us to see samples.

Whole immediate family from each side. This should include parents, siblings and grandparents from each side. When you are making your list, use everyone’s first names. So the photographer is not shouting ‘mum’ or ‘dad’.

Good question. One of the primary reasons is that photography equipment and the initial investment photographers make is extremely expensive. Not only that but wedding photographers need to invest in expensive professional editing software and training courses. The ongoing expenses are also hugely costly.

Cameras

A full frame digital cameras are extremely expensive. A entry level Canon EOS D6 Mark II costs £1,349 (Body Only). A Canon EOS 5D Mark IV cost £2,800 (Body Only).

Lenses

Most photographers will need at least two lenses. A 24-105mm f/4.0 (£1,389) and 70-200mm f/2.8 cost £1,300. But as your business grows most photographers invest in prime lens and bigger variety of focal lengths. Such as 50mm, 35mm and 100mm. 

Computer / Editing Software

A basic Apple iMac computer with 16GB RAM, 27 Inch, 256GB £1,449. Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom is £9.98 per month.

Second Hand

This is always a cheaper option for photographers but risky. Even though it cheaper it’s still a sizeable investment.

Tip of the Iceberg

On top of cameras and lenses, there is a huge amount of equipment a photographer needs to invest in. Items like lighting, tripods, camera cases, flashes, stands, memory cards and not to mention transport. Far to many to mention.

Owning Your Own Business

While having your own business has its perks, wedding photographers are not guaranteed work all year round. There are no paid holidays, no statutory sick pay or other company benefits.

 

We use full-frame digital cameras ideally in natural light, with a little help from our studio lights if needed. We believe in using highest quality equipment that gives your photographs that extra edge and quality. All our photographs can be sized up to over A1 size (59.4 x 84.1cm, 23.39 x 33.11 inches) which is useful if you would like to print and frame a large picture from your wedding. With our higher megapixels cameras your photo album will look sharper and more professional.
