Lewis and Schofield photography is a result of the combined efforts of David Lewis and Seb Schofield. They have been photographing weddings together for the past six years, as well as following individual professional paths. They met while studying photography and realised that they had a remarkably similar approach to photography, business and the world in general. The combination of their skills and personalities make for a unique experience in documentary wedding photography.
‘We genuinely feel that we offer something quite special. We get such a kick out it when our clients tell us how much they and their guests have enjoyed us being around on the day. It’s something we are both immensely proud of.
We find that people respond so well to a camera if you have had a friendly chat with them earlier in the day. It’s why we put so much energy into this aspect of our work. It also means we get to meet lots of amazing people. We always feel like we are saying goodbye to friends at the end of a day’s shoot and we know we wouldn’t get the shots we do if that weren’t the case.
While all of this is going on we get to be photographers too. The way that light changes, predicting and composing shots – it’s an obsession for both of us. The day we stop getting a massive buzz from getting a killer shot is the day we’ll down cameras and do something else. Weddings provide endless opportunities for photography. It’s a fantastic job and we love doing it’.
We get to work all over the U.K but the majority of the weddings we photograph are here in Dorset and we love that. There are rolling hills, miles of coast line with amazing beaches and dramatic cliffs, stunning old churches and modern hotels. No two weddings are alike and it really is a county made for amazing weddings. it’s a photographers dream and we really are lucky to live and work here.
