We are Helen and Noel. A married couple based in Braintree, Essex who share a passion and enthusiasm for photography. We have been members of a camera club for several years actively participating in competitions across the region. After being requested to supply the photography for both friend's and families weddings and events, we were encouraged to start our photography business. Having researched the current market we discovered that it is possible for us to provide a high quality service without it having to cost the earth. Also, we have found that every wedding and event is different, and therefore we tailor the photography around you, and your special occasion. Our coverage is currently Essex and the surrounding counties, although we are happy to negotiate on any location. Your special event is important to us and unique to you. Memories are priceless moments, and two photographers can be in two places at the same time, thus ensuring more treasured memories are captured. We combine reportage and traditional/formal photographs to give you the best of both worlds. This allows you to enjoy your time with family and friends without the need to stand posing endlessly. Every effort is made to use natural light in our images as this compliments you, your guests and the venue. However, in some circumstances diffused flash may be necessary. All the photographs are studied and processed to a very high standard before being transferred onto DVD, USB Flash drive and personal website. Weddings, events and portrait photography Lower, affordable prices, does not mean lower quality.

What is your most memorable wedding?
They are all memorable in their own ways, no one wedding is more special than another
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

What about your business are you most proud of?
Our ability to be professional, but still remain friendly and approachable.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Do what you can to accommodate your guests, but don't try to please everyone, otherwise you will end up with a wedding day that is nothing like you dreamed of or wanted. Stay true to yourselves and your wish list.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
An initial no obligation meeting to discuss requirements and show what we can provide to create a package individual to the couple. If happy, we then take a deposit to secure the date and sign contracts. A first detail meeting to start getting a basic idea of the format and timings for the day. Then a venue visit with or without the couple to assess lighting and best places for photographs. A final meeting two to four weeks before the wedding to finalise all the timings and collect final payment (if necessary). Attending the rehearsal if a church wedding. In between all this numerous emails between ourselves and the couple, specifically the bride to get dress details without the groom becoming aware of how she will look on the day to keep it a wonderful surprise for him on the day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Since all couples and weddings are different, photography for each event is different. We do not have a set photo that is a must, we have many general ones we will take, but each wedding is individual and this is reflected in the photographs.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Do not panic ! We carry a large number of umbrellas in a multitude of colours, so as long as people are willing to be outside we can still get some amazing, fun photographs with the added injection of colour from the umbrellas. The venue or church are also usually decorated beautifully, so if indoor photographs are a must, there is still always a good background to utilise. If it is a summer wedding, the chances are it will only be a passing shower and we can always do outdoor photographs a little later if preferred by the wedding party.
