We photographed our first wedding back in 2009 with the belief that couples should have the freedom to choose their own wedding photography package. To this day we remain true to this belief, so much so that at wedding fairs couples ask us if we are "the photographer who doesn't do packages?" We are the original Salisbury-based photography company where you choose your ideal coverage and presentation for your wedding, so instead of “Gold, Silver or Bronze packages” we meet, discuss and plan a bespoke wedding photography service just for you. After all, it’s your wedding so we believe you shouldn’t be forced into a one-size-fits-all photography package. This means that with us you only pay for the wedding photography coverage and presentation you really want and with our wedding photography on average costing between £750 and £1,500, bespoke doesn’t have to mean expensive. Our photography style is informal and relaxed, we're guests at your wedding as much as everyone else. We capture the real essence of your day without taking over your day. We include so much as standard including a password-protected online gallery, mobile phone app, mid-resolution CD or USB Folio, a pre-wedding photoshoot and more, and because we are bespoke if this is more than you would like don't worry because our service is a flexible as it is affordable. However you may have other ideas for your big day, that's perfectly fine, we always look forward to discussing couples' ideas. We are booked up very quickly and in most cases at least 12 months before the big day so contact us ASAP to arrange your wedding meeting at our Salisbury studio.

Location & Contact Details
Press & Awards
What is your most memorable wedding?
A wedding whereby the bride arrived by boat in the grounds Ardington House in Oxfordshire. The ceremony took place on a small island.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, unobtrusive, attentive, documentary, candid.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The testimonials we've received and our 'Finalist in Customer Service' award in the 2015 South Wilts Business of the Year Awards.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book your most important suppliers early. The best supliers are almost always booked up about 12 months in advance.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
It's all about building a rapport with my couples. Couples need to be able to trust and depend on their photographer. Regular meetings, pre-wedding photos and simply being at the end of the phone or email to answer questions is key.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A relaxed and informal shot after the main part of the day is done. I call it taking some time out during the madness of the day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A bride & groom asked me to create a kissing scene where they lean into each other and in the background is their wedding party.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
At least one umbrella and a good sense of humour!
Describe how you got into photography.
Photography was my hobby that developed into a business in 2009.
