OUR PHOTOGRAPHIC ETHOS

Perfect, Imperfect Moments.

You could plan a wedding for a hundred years and never predict what the perfect moment would turn out to be. The moments that truly matter are rarely ‘perfect’. They don’t happen on a mountain top surrounded by rainbows, they don’t occur on schedule and they rarely go in any way to plan. The moments that matter are the real moments, the spontaneous moments, the moments of people just being people and revealing something of themselves, of your true relationship to one another. To us nothing could be more perfect than that.

The greatest memories are never forced or faked, they’re forged in the briefest of moments and from the most unexpected of places.

We love portraits and always recommend a few group shots but it is the pure moments, not the contrived that live longest in the memory and it is those on which we focus. We want to capture your day thoroughly yet discreetly, awaiting the spontaneous and relishing in the unpredictable. True emotion cannot be created, only felt.

Weddings photographs are not just pretty pictures, they are lasting memories of overwhelming emotions.

We know how hard you worked to make your venue look incredible and we’ll cover every last inch, but lasting memories are forged between people, not between details and centrepieces.

Memories can't be scheduled

You never know when someone is going to make you belly laugh, you never know when you are going to cry with happiness or be overpowered with emotion. The story of your wedding doesn’t stop between big traditions and that’s why we never switch off. We’ll be there all day, constantly looking to find interesting moments and create dynamic imagery, even during the in-between moments.

It's all about you... and everyone else

Your wedding day is perhaps the only time you’ll have everyone you know and love in the same room at the same time. Whilst the bride and groom are the central characters in our story a wedding has a fantastic supporting cast and each member deserves their time in the spotlight. The greatest stories are made from a rich tapestry of subplots and character interactions and that’s why everyone at your wedding is important to your wedding tale.

Wherever there is light, one can photograph

- Alfred Stieglitz

Capturing the light and atmosphere, flash-free.

Lighting is important. Lighting changes the way we see things, it can make a moment romantic, exciting, soft or brash, it can completely change the mood of everything it touches, including a photograph. We choose to embrace it, to capture the true atmosphere of how it felt to be there. Flashy lights are for the DJ’s – we don’t want you blinded by flashes going off, we want you to just forget we’re there, dance hard, live free and be in the moment.

Your wedding is completely unique.

Our style is consistent but we never paint by numbers. We never settle for the safe shot, the tried and tested, the ordinary, we want to create images that excite us every bit as much as they excite you.

There are no rules.

We have never captured a wedding like yours before and we never will again. We want to capture your style, your personalities, your day no one else’s.

It is our emotions that help us take great pictures, if you can’t feel then you can’t see.

No compromise, just great imagery.
