He who seeks beauty, will find it - Bill Cunningham
We have a strong documentary approach to all of our work and try to avoid posing as far as possible. We hope you are here because you want unique photographs that capture authentic beauty and emotion, rather than anything staged, scripted or posed. We don’t believe that there should be a preconceived formula to photographing weddings and prefer to photograph things as they unfold naturally, rather than ticking off a checklist of ‘required’ shots. When you look at your photographs, we want you to remember what your wedding day felt like.
We firmly believe that a photograph of an authentic moment will never lose its impact, and will only grow in value as the years go by. In ten years time, your wedding décor probably won’t be trendy any more and you might regret choosing those dresses for your bridesmaids, but we can guarantee that you will still treasure the photographs of the quiet prayers, hand-squeezes, gentle glances, bear-hugs, belly-laughs, happy tears and wild dance moves. Most people will agree that a wedding is about far more than pinterest-perfect décor and a pretty dress and we want to make photographs that reflect more.
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives - Annie Dillard
If you would like us to photograph your family (whether your family is two people or ten people), our approach is also to keep things as honest and unscripted as possible. Choose something you love to do regularly as a family – a walk in the forest, a picnic, a swim in the river or a trip to the beach – and we will tag along to capture whatever unfolds. Or better yet, let us come and spend some time with you at home, just doing what you would usually do – making breakfast, playing games, snuggling on the couch, reading books, and all the mess and chaos in between. We will document all the sweet little moments that happen naturally and will endeavour to capture your family how they really are. This is our favourite way to photograph, as we find there is deep beauty in the day-to-day reality of life.
