Hi, We're Sam and Louise. We're an Essex based husband and wife photography duo, specialising in natural, relaxed and creative wedding day coverage. We believe that your wedding journey should be fantastic from the very beginning, so we place an emphasis on great service, fantastic photos and expert story telling. We strive to leave you with candid and creative images that make your heart sing and will allow you to relive your day for years to come. We've been shooting together exclusively as a team for more than 6 years and as such, we've developed a seamless, complimentary style and way of shooting that means no detail or moment will go over looked. As a pair of newlyweds ourselves, we know how much the little things are agonised over in the weeks and months approaching a wedding, so we make a point of capturing your day fully and completely as best we can. We're also incredibly proud of the fact that we're super flexible. We don't offer fixed hours or rigid packages. We simply include everything you need from your wedding coverage as standard- giving you the option to customise, tailor or upgrade as you see fit.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding has it's own memorable elements! More often than not it's an incredible couple, but sometimes details like the dress or the cake are total one offs and have us talking about them for months (or years!) afterwards.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
candid, creative, contemporary, photojournalistic, fun
What about your business are you most proud of?
The fact that every couple are treated as individuals. We don't offer one size fits all coverage and never shoot the same venue in the same way. To us, it's about creating memories as unique to the couple as they are.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't get bogged down with tradition for traditions sake, or the idea of what a wedding should be. You don't need to have bridesmaids, or a cake or a white dress if you don't want them. If you want something, go for it and if you don't leave it behind. Make your wedding about you and your husband or wife to be.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Pets at weddings will always win! They're part of the family, include them!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
From the initial point of enquiry we ensure that every couple is met with enthusiasm and professionalism. We genuinely love what we do, so we take a great interest in getting to know our couples and hearing more about their plans. It's important to us that we're the right fit for your day so chatting details and hopes and dreams is a must! From there, if a couple decide that they'd like to book, bookings can be completed online. Throughout the planning stages we're always at the other end of an email to offer advice, recommendations for other suppliers or just an ear to bend. Around a month before the wedding we'll confirm all final details for the day, such a timings and we're all set! On the day itself we'll arrive with plenty of time to capture all the golden moments, fading into the background and allowing the day to unfold naturally. Post wedding, images are typically processed and delivered no more than 3 weeks after the big day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There isn't one! There are no "shoulds".
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
An umbrella and a don't care attitude. You can create some amazing rain shots, as long as you're willing to embrace it.
