Photography Style

Reportage / Documentary
Full Description
We are Jonathan and Ruth, a husband and wife team with a love of weddings and photography! We are very privileged to be able to photograph people in love, whether a couple on their engagement shoot, a bride enamoured with her new husband, or the love that comes with little ones, families, and beautiful bumps. We create beautifully natural, timeless, luminous photographs, with a documentary style and most of all feeling. Our signature style is beautiful tones mixed with stunning natural light, which together creates timeless photographs that you and your family will cherish for generations to come. Our genre of photography is probably best described as a mix of documentary and 'fine art ', meaning we spend most of the time taking unobtrusive pictures of the day as it unfolds. However, we do offer gentle styling and guidance for certain moments, such as couple or group portraiture. Our photographs entwine seamlessly to create a story of your wedding day, in a way words just couldn’t. Our experience has enabled us to anticipate moments, allowing us to capture the joy, tears, hugs and laughs- the essence of the day. Our friends would describe us as happy go lucky, polite and sincere . We are extremely sociable with ability to build exceptional rapport with people from all walks of life, which is key in producing relaxed and emotive photographs. We are ‘people photographers’ and photographing people is our passion.​ We are based in Worcestershire, UK, but are available for both National and International weddings and commissions. Get in touch, we’d love to tell your wedding story.
