The simple answer is enough!...

Ian’s first wedding shoot was just after he left 6th form at age 18. Whilst at school he was regularly working in the media department and had shared a lot of his video work at the school. One of the teachers was due to be married at the end of summer and had asked if Ian would take on the task. This was a fantastic opportunity, and actually one of Ian’s first ever freelance jobs. Shooting a wedding felt so natural and it wasn’t long after that Ian was booked as a second shooter alongside other professional wedding photographers and videographers. This gave him the chance to learn from other professionals and refine the skills he would need later down the line.

Now 7 years later, Ian has shot multiple weddings all over the UK and is working with a business partner that has an equal passion for weddings. If it wasn’t for that teacher at his school who took a chance on hiring a student for his big day. Ian’s career path would have been extremely different.

Bry’s first job as a wedding photographer was way back when he was in university. He shot it free of charge at the beautiful Islington Town Hall. The couple hired an old school London bus to travel to where they finished up at The Peasant, also in Islington. The sticky toffee pudding on the menu was something he’ll never forget! Bry travelled from Norwich on the weekend to stay with his sister in London to make sure he could be there in good time. Even now we end up travelling for our couples because we love venturing somewhere new.

Back then, I'm not sure he realised he’d end up shooting weddings in London as his profession, his aims were towards sports and advertising photography. It turns out it was an underlying passion he wasn't aware of. Now, we’re shooting lots of weddings over the uk every year, learning from every single one and trying to add something new and a creative stamp with every shoot, whether that's an engagement shoot or full blown London wedding.

This is one of our most commonly asked questions! The answer is 100% YES!

In a digital age we’re constantly sharing photos via text or social media. This is great as we are able to share images and videos with ease across the globe, however as time goes on those images slowly move further and further down your feed and next generations of your family might struggle to find images of your big day.

We LOVE wedding books as we’re not just creating a book, we’re creating an heirloom that you sons, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren will be able to enjoy for years to come. Of course, those images will be up online somewhere, but we believe nothing compares to a physical book which makes you stop and enjoy every image. Ian’s parents still keep their wedding album from 1983 and on occasion it is still brought out even after 38 years!

Typically our wedding books consist of the best 100 photos taken on the day, but we can include more at your request. These images will be a mix of key moments such as the walk down the aisle, the first kiss and the first dance. But will also include some more detail shots too so you can see the full story of your day. Whenever we create a wedding book, we will always give you the opportunity to make amendments or replace images for other ones. Once you are 100% happy we will go ahead and send it off to be printed.

We love investing in our kit and are constantly on the lookout for our next upgrade or any new releases. As the years roll by we have slowly worked our way up the ladder and now shoot with industry standard cameras and lenses. Brydn shoots photography on his Nikon D850 whilst Ian shoots videos on his Sony A7iii.

As well as this we own our own lighting equipment both for photography and video. We recently purchased an Aperture 300X light which is incredibly powerful and can brighten up any dark space. This is especially useful if your venue has little natural light. Any professional photographer or videographer will tell you that lighting is one of the most important parts to composing a shot. Lighting determines not only brightness and darkness, but also tone, mood, and atmosphere. Therefore, it is necessary to control and manipulate light correctly.

Even though we own some of the top model cameras and lighting equipment, we still refer back to our creative knowledge learnt from our very first cameras.

Of course, owning top of the range kit doesn’t instantly make you the world's best wedding photographer or videographer. The person holding the camera is what counts. We both still own our first ever cameras, they remind us of how creative he had to get with the limitations we had. Ian could only shoot 42 seconds at a time with his first camera!
