Documentary Wedding Photography – a special approach to your day



London Wedding Photographer



A beautiful “Photo Essay” on film without the fuss.

We have been documenting lovely weddings for years now. First Steven on his own and then, for the last 10, with Josh. We know what you like and how you want to achieve it, we wouldn’t be the observant photographers we clearly are if we didn’t take notice. There are a lot of photographers now who say they will make natural pictures without the need to pose but we have the experience and sensitivity to do just that, flatter you and deliver a cohesive story of your wedding day. We reckon that’s still quite rare. Nicola and Jules from South Kensington got it in one…

“…The pictures really capture the atmosphere of the day, and the album is composed in such a way that as you follow the story, the whole day comes to life. You can really feel the sentiments and emotions that are expressed in the pictures…”

One of the comments we hear most from couples who look at our samples and meet us for the first time is “we didn’t know you could have wedding photography like this”. What we do is special it’s unique. Not just because we only do it for 30-40 couples each year but because we will pick up on the individual character of your wedding. We will tune in to you and your guests so that the picture story we create will reflect you and your very unique day. Sophie and Edmund from West Hampstead told us…

“… You have a great eye for capturing the atmosphere of the place and an unforced sense of the personalities of the guests…”

We have always made albums of beautiful prints and we still do for most of the couples we work with. Since digital photography and presentation arrived we are more usually than not asked for a set of full resolution files. We will supply those on a USB Flash Drive that will plug straight into your computer. We will also give you a licence to print. The USB Drive is beautifully packaged as well, just like everything else we supply. You can just have that, or you can just have an album but most couples will have both.

We start thinking about the design of your album the moment we arrive at the first location. We look out for pictures that will tell your story, we will of course always be open to the unexpected as well. Ultimately we aim to produce a superbly printed album, hand made, bound and exquisitely boxed that will become a true family heirloom. I still look at my parent’s album that was made in 1954…

“… Thanks again for such a fantastic job of recording our wedding – the album is one of our most treasured possessions…”
Said Catherine and Richard from Battersea.

Story, picture quality, layout, printing and craftsmanship are all watchwords in our practice. Our albums have found their way all over the world.

Kathleen and Michael are in Dallas, Texas
“…We have just received the wedding album. It is fantastic!!! The quality of the album and the printing is impeccable! You did an amazing job. Thank you so much. We couldn’t be happier!…”

…And we will do all of that very discreetly. Most couples want some portraits of them together soon after they are married and out of over 1000 we have probably only ever photographed 5 or 10 that wanted no family groups. We can, and do, do those as you like, very quickly, naturally and within the context of the wedding. Most of the time though you should hardly notice us…

“…The family and lots of the guests have commented on your unobtrusive style and speed, and we both enjoyed meeting you too…”
Anita and Christian, Essex

“…You were so discreet and quiet on the day that we hardly noticed you…”
Stephen and Mary, London

And our favourite comment…
“…Thank you too for your guidance and discreet manner. Many people wondered why we didn’t have a photographer! It was brilliant…”
Lucy and David, Keswick

We are based in the North West of England, Steven mostly in The Lakes and Josh usually in Manchester, but we travel all over the world, often to London and Cheshire, in the last 6 years we have photographed weddings in the South of France, Italy,  Ireland and, so far unequaled for distance and quality of light, Queensland, Australia.
