STYLE / ABOUT

Couple in Garden at Dove Barn, Essex wedding

As we have photographed some 400 plus weddings it is fair to say that our style and approach to a wedding day has developed over time. Indeed, combined with our previous experiences in fashion, portrait and other streams of photography we feel we offer a complete photographic solution to brides and grooms. First and foremost we are wedding photographers who thoroughly enjoy the dynamic of a wedding day, the interaction with the bride and groom, their families and friends, and, most of all, delivering an outstanding collection of wedding images.

While there are two photographers on every wedding we cover you can be assured that Tom will be your lead photographer. Tom is very experienced and has developed his skill set through a combination of practice and undertaking extensive training including some with the greats of modern wedding photography including Jerry Ghionis, Brett Florens, Adam Alex and Keda Z. This has led Tom to becoming an educator as well and he now runs and participates in training for both new and established wedding photographers.

Our commitment is to provide total quality from the initial client consultation through to the delivery of outstanding wedding photography and wedding albums. Our wedding photography is all about capturing moments, timeless moments that will live in the memory of the bride and groom and their families. It’s also about the emotion of the moment, the moment when the camera shutter opened. This, for us, is the very essence of beautiful wedding photography.

We aim to create magical wedding images. Images that are relaxed, romantic, emotional and full of memories. We also aim to make your wedding photography enjoyable, easy and as relaxed as possible and we want your images to bring back fantastic memories of your wonderful day, to make you laugh and cry and to relive those magical moments together and with friends and family, We always tell our clients that professional wedding photography isn’t really expensive at all. It’s priceless!.

We are proud to have our wedding photography published in various magazines and publications  including “Absolute Bridal”, “Your London Wedding”, “An Essex Wedding”, “Brides etc”, “A Suffolk Ceremony” and "Your East Anglian Wedding". Articles in these titles have also included a number of “real wedding” features where our images have formed the pictorial content. We are also award winning wedding photographers having secured the accolades of photographers to “Your London Wedding” magazine’s Wedding of the Year 2013, then again to “An Essex Wedding” magazine’s Wedding of the Year 2014 and "Surrey Wedding" magazine's Wedding of the Year 2015.
