We have been married for five years and best friends for ten. We believe in romance and we LOVE love. We make a big deal out of the little moments, celebrate small victories and take any excuse for a date night. We are as happy with a night in playing Zelda and cooking a delicious meal as we are heading out to see our favourite band. Our love of nature runs deep – we enjoy being outdoors wherever we are in the world, and try our best to see as much of this little blue planet as we possibly can. Music is of upmost importance to us, as James has worked professionally as a musician his entire working life and our friendship started out with an exchange of Spotify playlists back when Spotify was 100% free but our iPods were limited to the content of our iTunes libraries. You will find James’s music dotted throughout our website in the form of arrangements created solely for our couples’ wedding videos.

We are not here to take your spotlight, to make a scene or to force you into awkward poses. We know that 9 out of 10 times, being in front of the camera is probably not your favourite place to be. We also know that you have not planned your wedding around having to pose for hundreds of photographs. We don’t want to impose any rules on your day about what ‘should’ be included in your gallery or what is traditional. We won’t bring along masses of hefty equipment or interrupt precious moments in order to get the perfect shot.

We become your friends. We get to know you so that we know what makes you tick, what is important to you, and what moments mean the most. For the most part, we take a documentary approach and try to be as discrete and un-intrusive as we possibly can. One of our most heard comments from guests at weddings is ‘we barely noticed you were there!’ – our goal is to blend in – this is your show, not ours! When we do get involved, we do so gently. Some of the most important photos and videos of the day are the ones captured in the portrait session, where we take some time away from the party to allow you to breathe and soak up the atmosphere while we guide you in a way that fits your natural groove as a couple and allows us to capture you both in the most authentic way possible. We search out moments of emotion and intimacy throughout your day with intention, so as to create a fully comprehensive and beautiful record of your day.

Reviews

“From day one we felt totally at ease with them both and feel we have gained two new friends. Whilst their professionalism and talent is second to none, they are also super friendly and relaxed in their photography style. We are delighted with the photographs we received and have had so many compliments!

On top of this, they created the most beautiful video of our Italian wedding which has been the best gift of all, allowing us to share the memories with all of our friends and family who couldn’t be there. James wrote a unique piece of music and pulled together what I can only describe as a masterpiece of cinematography which we will treasure forever.”
