Frequently Asked Questions

Are you both fully professional wedding photographers?

Yes we are. We are long standing members of Master Photographers Association and other leading professional photographic bodies.

How long have you been wedding photographers?

We have been shooting weddings together in Surrey since 1989.  Prior to that Laurence became a wedding photographer straight from school and Ella trained later to join their growing business.  It is all we have ever done really!. We have shot over 2000 weddings together and have contributed to several books on wedding photography for other professional photographers.

What is your style of photography ?

As there are two of us taking photographs at your wedding you benefit from two pairs of fully professional eyes, as well as the male female mix. We have a shared approach to weddings - we love to capture all the love and emotion of the day whilst recognising that it is also a formal occasion and that most clients also require a small number of group photographs to record the day forever. We are creative and always looking for new photographs, we move fast and are always awake to what is going on around us.  It is important that we are able to help keep the flow of the wedding running smoothly and we understand how to organise guests in a happy and diplomatic way to achieve the best results. During the ceremony we are discreet and sensitive and as experienced local photographers we are often granted wonderful access by vicars and registrars alike.

What style of wedding albums do you offer?

We offer several styles of wedding album. Our main suppliers are Loxley Colour and Jorgensen - both world class album and book makers.  We design all our wedding albums in house.  Every album that leaves our studio is bespoke designed and fully approved by you the cient before being made up.

Can we have a CD/USB of  the photographs?

Yes - it is included in our coverage.

When do you leave a wedding?

Typically we offer 8 hours coverage as standard. This can be extended to 10 hours if you want longer. Further additional coverage : we are  happy to quote accordingly. We are flexible and would rather give you the choice.

How soon after the wedding do we see the photographs?

We take care with your photographs and edit them to present you with a fantastic set of photographs that you will love showing your friends and family.  Good editing takes time and so we generally say that your previews are ready when you return from honeymoon as most couples like to be the first to see them. Typically this is two weeks but we can prepare them sooner if required and if our workflow permits.

How do we view our photographs?

Your wedding goes online to a secure and personal website that is password protected for you and your guests only.

Can we have black and white photographs?

We shoot digitally and so any image can be enhanced into bw.  We always show you a proportion of your photographs in bw so that the whole collection has a great flow and variety of shots through out the day.

Can our families order extra photographs?

We offer parents albums and individual photographs for sale. There are many other ideas too which we are happy to show you, including gorgeous handbag size wedding albums etc.

Do you offer framed photographs and canvasses etc?

Yes. We offer a full range of luxury and contemporary frames. We offer canvas wraps, acrylics and exciting wall art ideas. We are happy to advise you after the wedding which shots would look stunning.

Do you offer engagement shoots?

We often photograph our wedding clients during their engagement. This is free and a great way of getting used to the way we work with you and help you feel relaxed etc.  Clients really enjoy this and all photographs are available to purchase from the shoot.  Many couples have a favourite creative shot, perhaps bw framed and on display at the wedding. Pre wedding shoots are offered free to all weekend weddings. They are only offered midweek as we are shooting weddings at most weekends!

Can we meet you before the day to discuss our wedding?

We always meet our clients two weeks before the wedding to run through the day in  detail. Where clients are extremely busy we offer a conference call.

Are you insured?

We are fully insured with public liability and professional indemnity insurance.

Do you only photograph weddings?

No. We run a busy portrait studio and we work commercially for several international corporate clients on creative projects providing photography for websites, PR and editorial . We have worked in the Royal Palaces on numerous occasions, also for government and for several leading charities. We also work with many Surrey and Hampshire schools providing a new and creative approach within schools including prospectus and core-value enhancement photography providing creative and real images for display purposes within school environments and in recent years shooting contemporary lifestyle school photographs of the pupils.
