Hi! We’re Sam & Louise. We’re a husband and wife photography team originally from Essex, but currently living in Lincolnshire. We specialise in something we like to call “Fancy photojournalism”. What this basically means is that we love to capture all the real, spontaneous moments that occur on your wedding day- all without unnecessary intervention or awkward posing- but with a bit of pretty thrown in too.
From prep to party we’ll be there snapping away, in the background, visually piecing together all the otherwise unseen moments that will collectively become your wedding day story. That’s the photojournalism bit! The Fancy bit is, I suppose, how we do it. How we tell your story. We’re both creatives at heart and like to utilise any and every opportunity to wow our couples with something a bit special.
We’ve been photographing weddings (and only weddings) together for the last 8 years. Almost 250 weddings later we love what we do more than ever.
I'd like to think it's very relaxed, natural and creative. Hopefully that shows in our work.
It varies from wedding to wedding. Collectively they're are an amazing thing to be part of, but little things from each wedding really stick with me. It might be a particularly heartfelt speech or working with a fantastic coordinator one time. It can be simple things like a kick ass pair of statement earrings. I suppose, on reflection it's the fact that they're all fundamentally the same event and yet every single one is completely different. I love that. I love that we'll never shoot the same thing twice and that we'll never be sure where the next moment will take us.
There's lots of cliche advice out there about choosing a wedding photographer, but having married ourselves recently, the only bit that's really important is that you love someones work. There are photographers out there to suit all styles, tastes and budgets. Finding the right one for you will be a labour of love, but it will be worth it when you're still smiling at your photos in 20+ years time.
We shoot all over the UK and are available for destination commissions too.
