You just have to live and life will give you pictures
Stay In The Moment - Wedding Photography by Dom & Liam Shaw
There are moments in life that should never be forgotten. They live long in our memories and help to define our past and present. Those memories should never be allowed to fade but be passed from generation to generation, an emotion that can still be felt at the merest glimpse of an image.
Wedding photographs are not just a two dimensional picture. They should remind you of the way that you felt, the sounds that you heard, that scent in the air and the electricity running through you as you experienced that moment full: unexpected, overpowering, unintended and irreplaceable. Wedding photographs should transport you back to that place, that moment in time, not just moments but perfect memories. It is the job of the wedding photographer to ensure that those memories never escape.

What People Say About Us:
London Wedding Photographers | International Street Photographers
For the last 12 or more years we’ve travelled the world with our cameras looking for visual stories; significant memories in the lives of others. We’ve seen moments that changed history in the biggest and smallest of ways, we’ve seen cultures come together, optimism in hardship, beauty and laughter in friendship and borne witness time and again to the most important moments in two people’s lives.
But through all that we’ve come to realise that the most powerful memories don’t necessarily come directly from a giant event in someone’s life, even if that event is the setting. They come from the people who are there with you in that moment. They come from the friends who laugh with you, the communities that surround you, the slightest of touches and the smallest of interactions.
Memories are more than a mere recording of an event, they’re a feeling, an understanding of a moment. For us as photographers that’s exactly what we want to capture in the stories that we find just about everywhere we look.
Official Fujifilm X-Photographers
We're incredibly honoured to have been asked to represent Fujifilm as official ambassadors and members of the exclusive group of Worldwide FUJIFILM X-Photographers. It's fair to say we have something of a love affair with Fujifilm cameras having picked up the original X100 back in 2011 for our street work and having shot almost exclusively with their fantastic X-Series cameras for both wedding photography and street photography since 2016.
Fujifilm's cameras are absolutely integral to the style of wedding photography we produce and we couldn't be more proud to represent such an amazing, innovative company.
Wedding Images That Belong In Print
We believe that our images are best seen in print and that's why we've teamed up with the stunning Fountain Albums to create modern, artfully crafted albums with incredible attention to detail and quality at every step.
We've always loved seeing our images in print and know there's nothing quite like flipping through your album, reliving your day and remembering the crazy stories that happened between all of your family and friends. What we've always wanted though was to find an album that that blended naturally with our streety, photography-first based approach to wedding photography. Created by expert printers with more than 65 years experience behind them, Fountain Albums are exactly what we've been looking for - so much so that they created a very special "York Place Album" especially for us!
