Full Description
Well established business travelling internationally photographing weddings. Most of our work is weddings as it takes a lot of skill to do it managing people, changing weather and obstacles. To put it simply, we love them! A mix of journalistic and creative off camera lighting to give you a relaxed informal approach. Trained with the U.K's best wedding photographers and continue to develop skills on a week by week basis. When we are not shooting weddings we are selling prints in local art dealerships. As seen in over 31 publications, nominated for four awards in 2018. No matter what the weather, I aim to get you some stunning shots. Every package we offer, has all your edited images royalty free. We believe in the Brides and Grooms discretion and only post your pictures with your consent. With easy payment options and hundreds of stunning wedding products available, consider us for your special day. Check out our videos as this is what every bride gets as a link to share. Will you hold my day? Yes, I usually hold your date for 7 days, with a low deposit of £100 too, booking is simple
