Our very first step into photographing weddings as a business was the desire to clarify the whole process of first Booking your photographer, but also how we refine our service to only offer the best products you can buy. Stylish albums with clean lines and sensibly sourced from local suppliers, and prints and frames that are carefully calibrated and put together all wrapped up in comprehensive packages that are built with ultimate value in mind.
I’ve been a Photographer all of my adult life and was brought up to learn how to see and render an image by the right teachers and mentors at the right time. Having a deep connection to a history of art and photography means I shoot new all the time. I’m hungry to create exciting and meaningful art.
Working in the fashion world opens your eyes to trends and helps you understand how people want to present themselves as stylish and refined. It also helps you see that there is greater beauty in real people.
I’m obsessed with it! There’s something extremely intimate about having your portrait taken, and I’m fascinated by this relationship that we all have with our image. How we see ourselves defines us, and capturing the real true beauty that I see in all of us is exhilarating and empowering for me and for my subjects.
We’re in Love! I love my wife more today than ever before. We’ve been married for just 10 years, we have started a family, and we continue to grow. We see this reflected in the people that we work with all the time and most of the time we’ll want to just grab you and scream because life in love is actually just the best place to be…
We’re very good at what we do, but we know who it is that has driven our success – our clients. We’re just people like you. We laugh and cry and we want the same things. Without treating this with proper respect we believe that we wouldn’t be where we are today, and that starts from the moment we meet and our journey begins.
