We've been married for 21 years, combining this with our love of adventure, motorbikes, family, pets and everything else. Weddings fitted naturally into our life. Our first wedding was in 2009, when Michelle was second shooter for a friend in the industry. The wedding was located in the Black country Museum canals, the whole wedding took place in the caverns, after all the guests were transported into this cathedral like cave ( Would you believe years later, Peaky Blinders would be filmed in the same location). That was it! Michelle was hooked on weddings, suddenly realising how creative brides could be, she couldn't wait to meet more like minded brides. Within 4 months, she was heading her own weddings. Since then we've been enchanted by each and every couple, their ideas, their visions and their love. Michelle inspired me to join the ranks, and we've not looked back since the re-brand of our business!
Its not just about what inspires you, its how you connect and enjoy your time with your photographer. After all your journey with them or us, will be over an average of 18 months, from your booking till after your day. So its a good idea, to make sure that you ask about all the elements. Pre-wedding care, how the intend to work and perform on your day, and then after. What are the timings for receiving your work? How would they handle a issue such as extended time or delay in getting your images to you? What if you want add ons and books, how do they fit your work in around all their bookings? The key is Communication, it all rests on this. Silence creates panic in a nervous bride. So how would they allay your fears, are their any touch bases in meeting up so that you can run through anything that worries you. Is this included in the packages or extra costs. After all you need to know, that the prices wont increase, along with unnecessary emotions on both sides. Customer service is just as valuable to you as it is us. The reason is a happy bride and groom, equals a happy photographer.
Our travel time to your wedding includes 1hr drive time. Outside of the UK is TBC
