We always meet all our lovely couples (either in person for a coffee or via Skype) before a booking is confirmed. This is a wonderful opportunity to answer any questions you may have, discuss what you can expect in more detail, show you some of our sample albums and and most importantly for us to get to know eachother.
We want you to feel completely at ease with us – we don’t want you to feel like two strangers have arrived to photograph one of the most special and intimate days of your life! We’d love to hear all about you and your plans so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Our approach: friendly, helpful, and unobtrusive
Our approach to weddings is unique – we live for beautiful moments & light which means we carefully choose our angles and backdrops accordingly to create wedding photographs that are light, airy and full of emotion.
We focus on capturing natural, candid photographs that tell a story of your wedding day – these are usually the most important wedding photographs that couples treasure. It could be the moment during the ceremony when your parents start to tear up with pride, or your friends going absolutely crazy on the dancefloor – weddings are full of these fleeting moments, and having two photographers means we can preserve more of these for you!
Catherine usually starts her day photographing the bridal preparations, while Andy spends the morning with the groom. Throughout the day all of the key events are captured from at least two angles without the need to move around and distract from the formalities. Inspired by beautiful light, we will also take the time to compose beautifully lit, genuine and natural looking portraits of the two of you! We want to keep these couple portrait sessions as relaxed as possible and make sure you both feel at ease – we want you to love every second of your wedding day!
‘You captured the spirit of our wedding beautifully’

Albums from £270
Beautiful albums are also available, and are a stunning way to present the images from your special day. We hand design all the layouts and want all of our clients to walk away with an album to keep for years – that is why we worked hard to offer an option for all budgets.
Albums start at £270, parent copies available from £200 for a pair. Get in touch for detailed pricing!
Engagement Shoot – £250
The engagement shoot is a really fun, laid-back portrait session which tends to last around an hour. We can’t emphasise the benefits of these strongly enough! It is a fabulous opportunity for you to work with us before the wedding, which means that by the time the big day comes around you will feel much more comfortable in front of us and our lenses. And that means even more beautiful photographs!
These shoots reflect who you are and what you love, so if you have any particular interests, or there is a place that is special to you both, then just let us know. We may be able to incorporate some of these elements into your photoshoot. In the past people have included everything from horses to sports cars, so don’t be afraid to make suggestions.
You will receive all of the images in full-resolution. In the past, our couple have displayed their favourites on the big day, and even used them to make their invitations & save the dates! Travel within 65 miles of CT18 is included. For engagement shoots further afield we may charge a small extra travel fee – just ask for more details!

How far in advance do we need to book you?
As soon as you have a date fixed, it is advisable to enquire about availability and move towards securing your photography. Weekends, particularly in the Summer months, fill up very quickly – up to a year or two in advance.
Can we meet you before we make a decision?
We meet all potential clients either in person or via Skype – this is a great opportunity to get to know each other and you can ask any questions you may have! We appreciate that, as a photographer, you will be a presence throughout the course of the day, and therefore couples need to be happy in advance that they get along well with you.
Do you offer discounts for winter or weekday weddings?
Although our weekend days, particularly in Summer, always seem to fill up first, we have received an increasing number of weekday wedding bookings in the last eighteen months. We invest the same amount of time and dedication into every wedding, regardless of the day of the week, so our prices remain the same throughout the calendar.
How far will you travel?
We travel all over the UK & Europe for weddings but if you’re planning to get married further afield do not hesitate to get in touch – we absolutely love to travel!
Do you charge extra for travel & accomodation?
We always include travel & accommodation in our quote for UK & Europe weddings!
How many images do we get?
Speaking in broad terms, we tend to hand over on average between 500 and 800 high quality images to our couples. Any more than this and we find people tend to become overwhelmed. The important thing to remember is that we will tell the story of your day in an in-depth and visually stunning way.
Do you take formal group photos?
If you’d like a few formal group photos, we’re more than happy to take these for you! We always advise our couples to keep these to no more than 8-10 different groups of immediate family & bridal party – that way we should be able to get the groups done in 15 minutes and you can get back to your canapés and reception drinks!
Do we choose the images that go in our album?
We usually ask our couples to choose 60-80 favourites using their online gallery. These images will get pride of place in the album and we will use our judgement to complete the album in order to tell the story of your day. On average we use around 100-120 images per album – if you prefer to choose everything that goes into the album you are welcome to do so as well!
Do we get the copyright to our pictures?
Speaking in technical terms, if a professional photographer takes the images of your day, the intellectual property and copyright automatically belong to (and usually remain with) them. However, with the USB of high resolution digital files we provide you with, you are given permission for unlimited printing and sharing of the images, provided they are not used for any commercial/professional purpose.
How long does it take for you to process our images?
This varies depending on our workload, but you will usually receive the photographs within 2-4 weeks.
