Weddings:

What kind of weddings do you shoot?

-- We photograph all types of weddings, everything from Jewish to Persian, Humanist to Catholic. We take no bias to any religion or style of wedding, we just enjoy capturing the moment as naturally as possible.

 

Do you shoot out of season weddings?

-- Winter weddings have a unique quality of intimacy. Subtle candle light, roaring fires and low winter sunshine are all things that give a winter wedding a beauty all of its own.

-- Low light conditions are perfect for us. We like to shoot as many weddings in the winter as we do in the summer for this very reason!

 

Do you shoot Colour or Black and White?

-- Each wedding is different; we usually shoot a mixture. We tend to use colour when the shot demands it, and when it can be used to its best effect, and black and white for that timeless look, or when the light is just right. There's a different answer for each wedding.

 

Do you do shoot Group Photographs?

-- We do some group shots during the day but like to shoot these quickly, so you have more time with your guests; and we can photograph you naturally

-- We recommend no more than six formal group pictures; we have found this is the perfect number to satisfy families and prevent lockjaw!, but it's your day, so anything's possible.

Will my wedding be featured in a magazine?

-- Some of our work does get featured in magazines but you will only ever be featured with your full permission.

 
 

Portraits:

How do you do Mobile Portraits?

-- We bring a mobile studio to your house, so that you don't have to travel.  We do not need much space for this, so do not worry if you think your house is not big enough...it will be!  We do not need a power supply, just a little space and you and your family!  This is a popular choice that is the most relaxing studio experience you will even have. 

-- Alternatively, we offer a location service where meet you and your family in a chosen location of your liking and we bring our mobile studio along from some candid, relaxing and fun group photos.  This is great fun for all the family, and great for kids who do not like to sit down.  This option provides the most natural, fun pictures and is a great alternative to a studio session.

 

 

Experience and Equipment:

How much experience do you have?

-- We have over 15 years experience between us; photographing just about anything you could ever think of.

-- We have shot in all kinds of surroundings and all kinds of weather...it just makes things that much more interesting!

-- We specialize in Weddings, Portraits and Events, but love to go out and capture Nature as much as possible - especially macro photography. We love to take a whole plethora of styles into our pictures, creating unique and inspiring images.

Are you the photographer that will shoot our wedding?

-- Myself and my Wife work as a pair, each with a slightly different purpose to cover the most angles and styles possible within the time. We do not bring anyone else along.

 

Do you shoot on Digital Format?

-- Yes, we both now shoot everything digitally. We held onto film for a long while until the quality and versatility of digital overtook it. The pictures we shoot are of an extremely high quality and can be used for truly massive prints without losing any quality.

 

What Printer do you use?

-- We have a Canon PIXMA Pro-10S A3+ Printer.  This is a highly accurate, 10-ink Pigment Based printer that produces Gallery Quality Prints on Canvas or Photo Paper.

 

What Inks do you use?

-- We use Canon's; PGI-72 LUCIA Professional inks.  The LUCIA ink range of professional inks delivers much, high density colours, excellent colour gamut and reliable and repeatable quality.  These are Pigment Based inks, that are guaranteed not to fade for 200 Years!

 

What Photo Paper do you use?

-- We use Canon's; PT-101 Photo Paper Pro Platinum.  The best money can buy!  This paper produces a Studio Finish, offering unbeatable quality and fade resistance.
