We want each and every one of our couples to come away feeling like you invited your friend to photograph your wedding day.
Building a close relationship with you guys ahead of your wedding is, in our eyes, the most important part of this whole process. We like to get to know you in a relaxed and conversational way, whether that be through regular texts, occasional skype catch ups or the odd pint down the local pub. Knowing how you met, where you got engaged, your photography likes and dislikes, helps to make our job a whole lot easier and in all honesty, a whole lot more fun! It means that we can arrive on your wedding morning feeling excited about incorporating all that you love into your photographs and you can relax knowing that your photographer friends have got your back.
Where do I begin...... Abbie and Lee are incredible wedding photographers, from our very first meeting to our first dance Abbie and Lee were an absolute pleasure to deal with, from answering all of my little questions to helping me ensure our day was perfect. I can’t thank you enough for the pictures, you’ve helped us create memories that will last us a lifetime . . .Carla & Luke
Where to start... Abbie and Lee were brilliant from the off. We booked them around 2 years before our wedding. They travelled to our home and outlined how they work in great detail and my partner Natalie and I found them so down to earth and friendly we booked them pretty much immediately . . .Natalie & Liam
From start to finish Abbie and Lee were amazing as our wedding photographers. I hate having my photo taken and my husband is known for his grumpiness! We are not your stereotypical lovey dovey couple but Abbie and Lee got some amazing shots which captured our relationship perfectly.Sarah & Danny
Thank you so much Abbie and Lee, you made myself, Jake and all my guests so relaxed and have a great time at our wedding! So many guests commented on how professional but fun you were! You have captured some really stunning photos, if ever I need a photographer again I know where to go!Emma & Jake
On the wedding day Abbie and Lee were both everywhere and nowhere all at the same time! They captured every precious moment and did so somehow without interrupting or distracting us for a second! We got married during ‘Beast from the East’ (March 2018) and it snowed loads on the wedding day. Abbie and Lee were happy to come out into the wild weather to get some magical photographs . . .Robecca & Tom
Amazing people and photos! From first meeting Abbie and Lee, we knew they were who we wanted to photograph our wedding - we emailed them about an hour after meeting to book them in. Their blend into the background approach and kind personalities were a hit on our big day with both ourselves and our guests. Our wedding photographs are amazing and we couldn't have wished for better.Lizzie & James
A story of your day
You like hiking in the fields near your house, let’s find those nearby fields and take 10 mins out to explore them. Your favourite pastime is watching the sunset together with Gin in hand, let’s make sure it happens. You are a dancefloor devil, then hell, we will be there eagerly awaiting your moves! In essence, every single wedding day is different. Getting to know you guys well enables us to get stuck into your day without obtrusion and to capture a set of photographs that tell the honest story of your day, capturing your personalities and your relationships.
The Wedding afternoon
We spend our photography careers striving to find that beautiful light, to witness those in-between moments, to see the interactions between people and your wedding day will be no different.
Working as a two photographer team offers so many benefits, aside from getting two for the price of one, there is the luxury that even when one of us is busy with something, the other can be there still documenting your day as it unfolds.
We will sit down with you both ahead of your wedding and finalise your list of essential formal photographs. This list will be kept short, if you are looking for a pair of photographers that will spend the afternoon formally arranging 20 different configurations of posed family photographs, then we are probably not the duo for you. Likewise, if you are looking for a set of heavily stylised and posed couples photographs then we are probably not right for you either.
If you are, however, looking to break the traditions and free yourself from the ‘classical wedding photography’ mould, yes to take a small handful of essential formal photographs but then spend the rest of your afternoon laughing, mingling, spending time with your loved ones and being present in the moment, then we will be a match made in heaven.
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 madness of the day as it is about us catching those great photographs. We like to keep it relaxed, a short stroll around the grounds, down a nearby lane or a little 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 the when the photography magic happens and we can capture some really great moments.
We are suckers for wedding speeches. We have witnessed some truly awesome ones over the years and often find ourselves so engrossed in the moment that we too will be crying happy tears or belly laughing along with your guests. We prefer not to use a tripod during your speeches and prefer, instead to be mobile and discreetly move in and around your guests. capturing those fleeting moments and reactions as they happen.
The Dance floor
That part of the wedding day when the sun begins to set, the high heels come off, the alcohol starts to flow a little faster and everyone lets their hair down. We firmly believe that any photographer who leaves immediately after your 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 shooting 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. You may not think it, but the two of use can be surprisingly good chameleons…..as long as you’re on the dance floor we will be there.
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 no time is too soon to get in touch and speak to us about your wedding day plans.
