So, you want to know how we work?

Our goal has always been to document weddings unobtrusively, to create a series of beautiful images that capture not just the main events, but everything in-between. It’s the intangible, extraordinary and fleeting moments, the smallest things that you may not even notice that we're always looking for.

An artistic, journalistic approach.

If you’ve been searching for long, you’ll realise there’s certain genres of wedding photographer out there. Documentary wedding photographers, reportage, fine art, creative and so on. As our style and methods have developed over the past ten years, it’s become apparent we don’t exclusively conform to any of those genres.

On the whole, we take a mostly journalistic approach to a wedding, with the only exception being the couples portraits. Many of our couples are initially apprehensive about this, I mean how often are we followed around by a photographer in our day-to-day lives, surely it’s going to be weird or awkward, right!? That’s exactly why we don’t pose our couples portraits, only give very minimal direction, such as suggesting where to stand for the best light, or in which direction to take a quiet walk together.

This 20 minute session (no, we don’t take you away for hours) is likely the first moment you’ve had alone since saying ‘I do’.

Your reception will be a whirlwind, trust me! So we encourage our couples to just relax, enjoy a little peace and quiet, talk about which guest will have the most embarrassing dance moves, which one of you had a tear during the ceremony, or how worried you are about the impending best man’s speech. Maybe even practice your first dance while no one’s watching. By the time that’s done, we’ll already have some stunning images of you both.

Dance like only we’re watching.

We absolutely love the dance floor, it’s one of the best parts of a wedding to document. You won’t catch us packing our bags 5 minutes after the first dance. There’s so much scope for creativity and so many hilarious moments to capture.

The dance floor is also one of very few situations where you will see us using a flash. There’s nothing worse during the speeches, or *cringes* during the ceremony, to have a flash going off every few seconds. We use the available natural light whenever possible throughout the day, only moving to artificial light in the evening. This is done in a subtle and complimentary way to the lighting that’s already on the dance floor.

In summary.

We want your images to feel natural and genuine, and for our couples to have complete trust in our ability to creatively document their day in its entirety. We’re not there to turn your wedding day into a photo shoot or to overly manipulate a situation or stage anything.

Simply put, we photograph weddings how we’d want our own to be photographed.

Many couples are kind enough to leave us positive reviews, but it’s the ones that express how easy it was for them, how it was like being photographed by a close friend that stand out the most. We’re not only proud of the work we produce, but of the way we go about creating it.

If that sounds like the kind of experience you would like on your wedding day and would like to check availability, just get in touch here
