We are Sonia and Simon of S2 Images. A husband and wife wedding photography team, photographing beautiful weddings across the UK and worldwide.
We feel so blessed to be doing what we love for a living and getting to share that passion means the world to us as a couple.
Our main aim is to tell a great story of your day and to make sure you are having an awesome time. If you are having fun, it shows in the images. We want for you to see your images back, be wow’ed at their beauty and for you to be moved by your story.
The real beauty of our job is getting a backstage pass into your lives; capturing the love, laughter and happy tears. We are passionate about creating powerful and poignant memories of a HUGE life event for you both, a privilege we do not take lightly.
We class ourselves as Creative Documentary Wedding Photographers, which means that we let the day proceed almost as if we weren't there to capture it. We let all aspects of your day run unhindered whilst seeking out beautiful compositions and hidden moments of interaction between loved ones using natural light. Having two photographers actually ensures minimal intrusion as it means we can respectively take the 'fly on the wall' approach rather than a photographer entering the bridal suite to specifically take photos and leave again. There are of course some elements to the day which do require small interaction and light use of flash, such as the couple shoot; but our aim is to make this as easy and fun for your guys as possible whilst encouraging you to be 'in the moment'. We are definitely present enough to laugh and share in the joy of your day, but aim to blend into our surroundings as if we were family and are often approached by guests at the end of the night thanking us for being a positive addition to the occasion.
We have learnt so much from meeting couples with their own unique personalities and chemistry. We feel its very important to understand the things in life you hold dear, as elements of these will often be woven into the essence of the day itself. Finding out who people really are and how they choose to celebrate that has to be one of the most exciting professions ever. A wedding is a culmination of months of careful planning and hard work earning the funds for the day; often family travel from far and wide to join together for this one special emotionally charged occasion, to celebrate the love between two people. What's not to love about that? It is always an absolute privilege and an honour to be welcomed into a family circle and given the responsibility of documenting perhaps one of the most important events in their lives. No wedding is ever the same, big or small we appreciate the beauty in all and its is such an amazing feeling to speak to ecstatic couples who have received their photos back, overcome with emotion and are so genuinely thankful for trusting in us.
It is so important to get on with your wedding photographer as they are the vendor that spends the most time with you on your day. We pride ourselves on being very easy to deal with and above all good fun to be around. Hiring your wedding photographer is more than a simple business transaction, it is an occasion where emotions are high, filled with all of the people that mean the most to you; it is important for you to both feel comfortable that your photographer has your best interests at heart. You are going to need to invest a little time in getting to know your perspective photographer and get a feel for if they are your 'cup of tea' before seeing what they can do with a camera. A relaxed and trusting relationship between you and your photographer will unlock surprisingly honest and genuine portrayals of your day. It should be clear that your perspective photographer is competent in their craft and very passionate about what YOUR day entails.
We cover all wedding across the UK and worldwide.
I can't say enough about these two. I found them during a browse online and loved their photos. Hiring Simon and Sonia was one the best decisions that we made for our wedding. They were fabulous to have around on our wedding day. They were friendly, personable and professional. Everyone that had the opportunity to talk to them loved them and commented to us later about how great our photographers were. I couldn't have agreed more! They've maintained communication after and were timely in getting us our images. I'm usually someone who is overly critical of photos of myself but I can confidently say there is not one photo that they took that I don't like. They far exceeded our expectations both in person and in the product they delivered. I will forever recommend S2 Images.
Simon and Sonia were fantastic before, during and after our wedding; we could not have asked for more! Their professional yet friendly approach was amazing on the day and their photos are incredible, telling the story of our wedding perfectly. I have no hesitation in recommending Sonia and Simon to anyone. Thank you so much for joining us at our wedding, you have been brilliant throughout.
Thank you so much for all of your help - you guys really have been great and you photos are beautiful.
Roy and I would like to say a huge thank you to Simon and Sonia @s2images for the brilliant job they did on our wedding day! Simon and Sonia were amazing and so helpful and supportive in so many ways. You need people like that on your wedding day ! They really looked after us, brought out the best and captured some beautiful moments. They are fun to work with and a very loveable couple They are more than just wedding photographers ! We would highly recommend, S2 Images, they will not let you down.
We would 100% recommend S2 Images. Duane and I are both photographers, so this was one part of the wedding we were dreading, we spent months looking for the right photographer. We finally came to a decision and then went to a friend’s wedding later that week, S2 images were their photographers and we were both blown away by how in sync they were. We had never seen a couple work so well together (you didn’t even notice them). So this changed our mind completely and we booked them straight away. Best decision we made! Honestly, they are amazing – one of the loveliest couples you will meet with an incredible talent.
As an old saying goes, you can’t be in two places at once. With S2 images, we had just that with two photographers, Sonia and Simon. Sonia joined up with our bridal party and Simon our groom’s party at the crack of dawn to capture every special moment from the pre-wedding preparations to our first dance and beyond.
Photographers may be deemed as just another thing to arrange, but you should not forget that when the vows have been recited and the honeymoon is over, the only thing you will have to look back on are your photos to remind you of the best day of your life.
Sonia and Simon will most certainly deliver you excellent wedding photos; but more than that, they added moments to our day and captured photos which no amount of money can buy!
Fortunately, Louise’s sister has booked S2 images for their wedding next year and we get to spend another day together ?
