WHO WE ARE
We’re Rachel and Christopher, an English girl + an American boy with a little dual-citizen kiddo (her name’s Petra). We divide our time between London and Los Angeles. If you believe weddings should be fun, smiles should not be forced, and pictures should reflect reality, we’ll probably get along very well.
HOW WE WORK
We shot our first weddings in 2011, after years of shooting music festivals. Our first wedding together was for our friends Sophia and Otto, who didn’t want “wedding photographers”, so they hired us instead. Our years on festival duty were good training for shooting weddings – the two have lots in common:
• everyone’s trying to have the best day ever
• there are always a million things happening at once
• nothing ever runs on schedule, but it doesn’t matter
• they usually end with wild dancing
And at both weddings and festivals, it’s not about the photographers. It’s about the people in front of the camera, in all their unpredictable glory.
AFTER THE WEDDING
Afterwards, we edit and beautify all your shots, then make you nice things. A few weeks after the hangovers have worn off, we’ll present you with the full story of your wedding day, so you can relive the best bits forever and ever, and say things like this:
“These pictures are insanely brilliant.”
“I am on the toilet with happy tears running down my cheeks. We are so happy beyond words. I’ll email later when I’m not peeing.”
— Sophia & Otto
“OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG. These are SO priceless. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Ms Carr… this means so much to me to have these. I’m totally brought to tears. I love you and these and pretty much everything!!! xoxoxo”
— Melissa & Jeff
“Hey! They are ACE!!! I love them so much. You and Chris totally nailed it and I am so so so happy you were able to do this for us. Incredible. Thank you, thank you.”

“Oh gosssssshhhhhhhh. How marvellous. We obviously love them, and it was the nicest thing to just KNOW the pictures would be nice.”
— Laura & Rich
Relaxed, unobtrusive, photojournalistic
The dancing, the happiness, the personalities
