Our Approach

Ahead of your wedding

Our approach is to get to know you as a couple ahead of your wedding day. Whether that be through regular texts, during a pre-wedding shoot or over a pint down the local. Discovering your loves, where you got engaged, what makes you tick and what drink gets you up and dancing helps to make our job a lot easier and a lot more fun! It also enables us to get stuck into your wedding day without obtrusion and to capture a set of photographs that tell the story of your day, capturing your personalities and your relationships.

Your day your way!

If you like hiking in the fields near your house, let’s find those nearby fields and explore them. Your favourite pastime is watching the sunset together, let’s enjoy that golden hour goodness on your wedding day. You’re a dance-floor devil, then we will be there eagerly awaiting your moves! In essence, every single wedding day is different and your day really can be done your way. Some couples choose to stick to wedding traditions whilst others break every wedding tradition that they can. Some choose to marry with 80+ friends and family whilst others opt for an intimate micro wedding. There really is no right or wrong way and we love to hear each couple’s individual plans.

The wedding morning

Your wedding morning will be filled with excitement, nerves, laughter and champers and we will be there to document it. Nothing posed, nothing staged, just photographic storytelling of your wedding preparations.

Working as a two photographer team offers so many benefits throughout a wedding day, however this is especially prominent in the wedding morning, as it allows for Lee to be documenting one party’s preparations whilst Abbie’s photographing the other.

Group shots & canapés

At some point during your wedding afternoon we will capture your group shots. Things have moved on since the rigid, forced cheese, old school family photograph days and group shots are fun. Trust us! We’ll have collated a list of shots ahead of your wedding and will whiz through it during your wedding afternoon. Approximately 10 photographs works a treat, and you can be back enjoying your canapés as quickly as possible.

We will spend the rest of your afternoon watching the magic unfold and documenting anything and everything that we see.

Speeches

We are suckers for wedding speeches and have witnessed some truly awesome ones over the years. It’s unlikely that you will find us setting up a tripod, instead we prefer to be mobile and discreetly move in and around your guests capturing those fleeting moments and reactions as they happen.

Whether your speeches are tear jerkers or ones that make your belly hurt with laughter we understand that they’re usually highly charged with emotion and deserve to be captured. As there’s two of us you can be confident that we’ll be photographing all the moments without you even noticing we’re there.

The Dancefloor

That part of the wedding day when the sun begins to set, the alcohol starts to flow a little faster and everyone lets their hair down. We firmly believe that any photographer that leaves immediately after the first dance is missing a huge trick! We absolutely love the dance floor! Just try and get us to leave after your first dance and you’ll have a challenge on your hands.

Our approach to photographing the dance floor is to get stuck into the thick of it. That’s where the madness emerges and that’s where the craziest and funniest of photographs can be caught.

Our approach to wedding photography

Your couples shoot

We run our couples shoots over two 10 – 15 minute slots. It is important to us that these slots are as much about the two of you taking some time out to reflect on the day as it is about us catching those great photographs.

We like to keep it relaxed. For example, we might take a short stroll around the grounds or hop over a fence into a neighbouring field. We may suggest that you stand just over there or walk in that direction, but you can rest assured that you will never hear us saying phrases like; “hold her like this, hold him like that, move your arm slightly or arch your back”. When you are at your most relaxed and enjoying each others company is when the photography magic happens and we can capture some really beautiful moments.

Let’s talk weddings!

We prefer to limit the amount of weddings that we take on each year so that we can feel fresh as a daisy and raring to go for each and every one. We start taking bookings up to two years before the wedding date, so if you like our work and the sound of our approach then no time is too soon to get in touch and speak to us about your wedding day plans.
