We describe our style as natural, emotive, documentary photography that uses subtle guidance to help where needed, we want to tell the story of your day. In doing so we also offer a Fine Art aesthetic.
What if I want to alter your coverage or style?
We can stay for as long or as little as required including multiple day events before and after weddings. In terms of our style; we can shoot 100% documentary or push for a far more editorial aesthetic, the choice is yours but being open and clear with us is very important for all parties involved. Our natural style is a balance of real documentary images and subtly posed couples images. We ask all our couples to fill some information to help us capture your day as you would like us to. We request this information approximately four weeks prior to allow us to understand your days plans and photographic requirements.
What sets you apart in your processes?
We take pride in everything that we do and complete all of our work in house. We meet you and get to know you, we edit our own photos and take pride in every stage of this. We don’t rush and will spend at least 30 hours of editing time per wedding. We believe that our attention to detail is one of the many things that make us the business that we are. Every image is tweaked to meet our branding style and standards. You will receive We don’t overbook ourselves allowing time for quality work to take place, you will never share your wedding day with another couple - we will only take on one wedding per day. Samuel has trained in using the Adobe suite working for studios and has been involved with Adobe education in schools and universities. Helen studied graphic design and imagery so both of us have an astute eye for detail and are highly qualified and experienced in image editing; a claim few can match.
How long does it take to get my wedding photos?
Depending on the season we try to have everything turned around within four to six weeks. This may be longer if film photography is involved.
How will I receive my images and what is included in your prices?
All clients will receive an online private downloadable gallery of images. We include high resolution images that are ready to print.
How do you edit our photos?
As you can see from our website, we tend to keep things as real as we can. All images are balanced and tonally graded in Adobe Lightroom CC and if any additional work is required in Photoshop then we get to work. We don’t ‘over Photoshop’ our images, we like to be realistic yet flattering at all times. We tend to avoid 'filters' (think Instagram) which will date your photos in time, we aim for artistic, timeless, documentary and fine art styles.
We do offer retouching packages upon request.
What equipment do you use and will my photos be safe?
The cameras and equipment we use are maintained, monitored and replaced regularly; we will have at least 3 professional cameras on us incase of any problems. We use Nikon & Sony FX Professional cameras and travel with hard cases to avoid damage. All equipment used is of professional quality and your photographs will be backed up in at least 3 places within 48 hours of your wedding.
If you are looking for your wedding to be captured on video get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.
SECURE YOUR DATE

What happens when we meet?
We offer a pre-wedding consultation included in our price. This is normally an in person meeting where we discuss your day and get a real feel for how your wedding will run. This is not our only contact regarding this but gives us a real insight into you both as a couple. We also provide you both with information on what can be done to allow us to get the best possible photos of your day. All of this is followed up with our detailed online information capture forms and can even be followed up with Skype or telephone conversations about any changes or thoughts you may have nearer the date.
