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 newborns.
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.

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.

We booked George from Le Petit Chat for our wedding in September 2022. It’s always a bit scary booking something like this that is so important, but we are so glad we chose Le Petit Chat! We’re extremely happy with the photos. There’s some of our family we will cherish forever, and of course very special ones of the groom and I.”
