Thank you for your interest in Peakography, we are Colin and Rae. Together we have established our studio in Matlock where Colin works as lead photographer. Rae manages her time between her role at the studio and being Mum to 7 year old Ada. We both have backgrounds in creative arts and an instinct for aesthetics, which we find makes the perfect combination for creating stunning wedding photographs. Our approach is one of respect, attention to detail and thorough coverage. We capture beautiful photographs that reflect the heart and soul of your relationship and wedding, providing you with something to cherish for many years to come. Everything from the big moments and couples portraits to the tiniest details; nothing will go unnoticed. After all, the atmosphere of your wedding day is built from all those details. We know that your wedding is your special day, we aim to cover every element with care and attention, whilst maintaining a great level of respect for your celebrations and being as discreet as possible. We also know how easy it is to get swept away in the beautiful chaos of a wedding day so we encourage our couples to take a short break. We’ll find you a secluded spot to enjoy each others company and soak up the realisation that you are finally married. During this time we’ll provide some direction to get some truly stunning portraits, but mainly we aim to just capture your natural chemistry. Our aim is to provide you with the very best memories of your momentous day possible.

Describe how you got into photography.
Using my dads Pentax ME Super 35mm SLR from a young age photography is something that has always been in my life. Capturing live music and bands whilst at university studying Digital Art and Design brought it back to the fore as an interest and taking over the studio in Matlock was massive step in the right direction.
