Centrally located in Tamworth, Staffordshire & close to the heart of the UK’s motorway network we regularly carry out assignments Nationwide ~ for Couples as their Wedding Photographers ~ for Companies as their Conference & Awards Photographers ~ for Hotels as both their recommended Corporate Partners and Event/Christmas Party Photographers ~ for Students as their Prom & Graduation Ball Photographers Over the last 17 years we have invested heavily in the latest camera equipment (and of course, the same kit as back-up) plus the latest computers and editing programs - so, each Image is individually assessed and & enhanced to guarantee outstanding quality 5*Reviews Andy & Joy were our photographers for our Wedding this past weekend. They really went the extra mile to take care of us and guide us through the big day. They are such a fun couple to be around and really made us feel at ease when we were most nervous and shy! Our guests all loved them too and they made sure everyone's needs were accommodated. We also hired their photo booth and that was a massive hit with all our guests - Lee & Abbey Highly recommend Avant Photography. Joy and Andy are the perfect team! They put us at ease and how they conduct themselves makes for a slick operation. They knew exactly what they were doing, where to be and who should be around. Their knowledge of Lea Marston and the staff there also made everything run smoothly. They were very friendly with us and our guests, often joining in and making everyone laugh. As a photographer myself i was worried about choosing a photographer for my wedding, and worried I'd be disapointed. I'm so glad we chose Avant Photography. We weren't disapointed. We got our official photos yesterday and we love them! Thank you Andy and Joy! Xx - Dawn & Natalie

What is your most memorable wedding?
The most recent one!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, friendly, intimate, fun & natural
What about your business are you most proud of?
We have built Avant Photography from the ground up & have been in business now for over 17 years!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book Professionals - you will never realise how competitive a Professional is until you book an amateur! Professional Photography is not cheap ~ cheap Photography is not Professional!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A groom sang (& wonderfully) to his bride at the alter...no one even knew he could sing & had never heard him sing before!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We love to get to know our couples with a pre-booking consultation & then an informal chat just prior to the big day. We just get to know the couples sense humour so that we can relax them on the day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Apart from shots of the couple, close family groups, because they are what memories are made of & we never know how long our loved ones are going to be with us!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The Bride & Groom on their Wedding Day playing Tennis, yes still in her Wedding high heels (the couple are both tennis coaches)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas, a can do attitude & smiles, smiles, smiles...
Describe how you got into photography.
It's our life long passion!
