- A little about us......We are a young creative couple that live in Bournemouth, Dorset. We met in may 2009 and after four short months we embarked on a nine month adventure around New Zealand and Australia. From that adventure we have moved on to buying our own house together, which we share with our cat Ripley. Oh, and we recently got engaged! With Sophie's many years of experience in portrait & wedding photography and Ben's illustration and design background we think we make up a pretty good team, and absolutely love what we do! We mainly cover the South West Region including Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire but are happy to go further afield including across the UK and destination weddings.
