We are a couple who share a passion for mid-century design and style.
Our approach to photography is discreet and derives from our passion of early documentary giants such as Cartier Bresson, viewing life as a series of fleeting moments to be recorded forever.
We can work as you wish; disappearing into the background to photograph the day in a reportage style, or working with Jeni to co-ordinate yourself and your guests into your pre-arranged poses and moments. Jeni is on hand has a second shooter to capture the smaller details of the day.
Documentary style, capturing natural moments. Inspired by early 20th century photojournalism. Passionate about capturing the human spirit combined with being drawn towards quirky moments, and aspiring to frame images with an abstract approach. Always striving to make each wedding different by shooting it with fresh eyes, and steering away from the cliches of wedding photography. Discreet approach in a photojournalistic manner, not trying to force moments but waiting for the moment to happen.
Connecting with people and being on the journey with them. Creating powerful and long lasting memories that are real and over time will become more and more powerful as a lasting tangible window into that day.
Meet or at least chat on the phone with your Photographer and see if you get along well. It really helps if you feel comfortable talking and get along. Think about what style of Photography you want. Black & white or film or just straightforward? Reportage or posed? Do you want your Photography to be in the background or the foreground of the day? You might want a mixture and this is often the case so sitting down and having a chat about what you want is very helpful. How much time do you want to dedicate to couple shots and group shots? Do you want to prioritise time with your family and loved ones over too much time with the photographer or do you want more involved photography.
