The stars aligned when Sophie and Josh got in touch about us photographing their wedding… and we realised we lived just a few roads apart in Tooting!!  Always a fan of working with our local Tooting community!

Sophie and Josh met at university, after being set up by Josh’s aunt – over a decade later, Josh managed to surprise Sophie with a sweet proposal (after a few decoy romantic holidays, love it!).

They chose to get married at Boxgrove Priory; even more special as Josh’s parents got married at this same church, and it’s the church where he was christened as a child… don’t you just love those very special connections that bring a wedding day together?  Following the ceremony, they headed to Farbridge – a pretty barn in West Sussex – for more celebrations, a delicious feast, and a live band knees-up!!

As with all the couples that we are lucky enough to get to know through our work, Sophie and Josh are just such a genuinely warm and friendly couple – we were honoured to capture their day in all its glory!!  More photos and a wedding film to come soon (update: you can now watch their film below!), but these teasers are on their way around the world to catch up with Soph and Josh honeymooning in Hong Kong and the Philippines (jels).  We hope you love them!!!

If you’d like some photos for your own West Sussex wedding, just get in touch and let’s make it happen!!

“…we’re actually just thinking of asking a friend to shoot the wedding.”

These words may seem fairly innocuous to you, but to me (Joey) they conjure a whole host of emotions – ranging from despair – all the way to knowing I’ll need to go and see a doctor to have my palm surgically removed from my forehead.

Before finally deciding on asking a friend to be your wedding photographer, please, please, run through the below list, as I outline the benefits to both having a friend photograph your wedding vs using a professional wedding photographer!

“FRIEND PHOTOGRAPHY” BENEFITS

1. COST –

(**note that I’ve not written “value” here**)  Asking a friend to shoot your wedding will be cheaper than utilising the services of an experienced professional wedding photographer…

That’s all the benefits of ‘asking your friend to shoot your wedding’ that I can think of! 

(Disclaimer: of course, this is a case-by-case decision, and your friend may well be training, second shooting at weddings, or building up a portfolio or business – that’s up to you to make sure you do your due diligence so that you know what you’re getting from the off, and a good place to start is below!)

PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BENEFITS

1. QUALITY

Your friend may be an avid landscape photographer or a keen fashion photography enthusiast – I have no doubt you will have seen one or two pictures on their Instagram that you love!  I am not here to say that your friend can’t take a good picture!  What I am trying to say is that with a professional photographer, you will get consistently high quality photos throughout the whole of your wedding day. 

None of this “can you do the confetti again, I had the wrong lens on” or the ceremony photos being all underexposed because the ‘light wasn’t good”.  Professional photographers have seen all types of different scenarios and have the quality and experience to adapt at a moment’s notice.  On a photographer’s website you can see gallery after gallery of great photos in all different conditions – but all consistently high quality.

2. EXPERIENCE –

Knowing where to be and when during a wedding day – and, more importantly, pre-empting those moments and being in the right place before it happens – ensures your photographer has the best chance of getting that key shot. 

Shooting family photos week-in-week-out, means your wedding photographer knows how to make the process flow smoothly (and quickly!).  Shooting in bright sunlight, candle-lit pubs and everything in between – prep, ceremony, couple pics, reception, family shots, speeches, cake cutting, partying… all of these parts of the day have all of their own challenges and intricacies that your professional wedding photographer will have the experience to handle.

3. PEACE OF MIND

Back-ups, multiple cameras, dual card slots, insurance… are you still awake?! 

I don’t blame you – not everything involving wedding photography is glamorous, but there are some fundamental steps required to ensure your wedding photos are safeguarded.  Your wedding photographer will have all of this in hand, to the extent that you never need to worry about “what happens if…” …but relying on your friend who: didn’t bring a spare camera battery / has only got one lens / memory card is full… is a problem waiting to happen.

4. GUIDANCE –

Your wedding photographer is much more than a taker of photographs…

We are a calm presence who can help you through any hectic parts of the planning/day.  Your wedding day is designed to be a fun-filled day, flowing from one part of the day to the next.  We make an effort to get to know you ahead of the day, help you plan with timings or suggestions for when photos could be included to not break the flow of the day, bringing in experience from shooting tons of weddings before. 

We are there with you in the morning, with your inner circle of family and friends.  We are there with you for some relaxed pictures of just the two of you after the ceremony.  We are there for you whenever you need us. 

Having a personable professional photographer to support you through the day is beyond valuable!

5. AVOIDS HUGE BURDEN AND PRESSURE ON YOUR FRIEND –

Your poor, poor friend. 

I will admit it – before I started in wedding photography, I had no idea about the amount of work, experience, skills required to make it a success – both on the day and afterwards.  Hours-upon-hours of work and years-upon-years of experience and skill.  Not to mention that your friend won’t even be able to enjoy the day (…or they will enjoy the day and your photo set will miss some huge chunks!). 

The other version of “we have a few friends who are great photographers and have said they’ll take photos for us” – just remember you could end up with multiple looks and styles to your photos, instead of a cohesive, story-telling collection of images.  For many of our weddings we even have two photographers, dedicated to shooting the day – there are so many funny moments, interesting interactions, emotions, details to capture – putting that stress and pressure on your friend is asking more than a lot!

I could go on… this is just a small snapshot of a huge list of reasons – I’ve not even mentioned Equipment, Coverage, Editing, Albums…

The reality is that if you value having wedding photographs (which you must do to some extent – if you’re thinking of giving your friend such a huge responsibility) then the peace of mind and quality you get with a professional photographer is incredible value! 

There’s a lot to absorb here, and it’s a bigger discussion than we can fit in a blog post, so if you have any questions leave a comment below or get in touch and we’ll be happy to give you any guidance we can!

We’re Krish and Joey, two photographers in London, UK shooting awesome people, places and vibes!!

Felicity and Chris met seven years ago at a ‘wet the baby’s head’ gathering (if – like us – you aren’t familiar with this occasion, the Urban Dictionary suggests ‘the phrase now commonly relates to the consumption of large amounts of alcohol as a celebration of the new arrival’…enough said!!).  From this chance meeting several years ago, these two have set up home near Felicity’s family in north London, so a London wedding vibe was really important to them.  You can’t get more London than getting photobombed on the street by a random bunch of strangers, with a big red bus driver looking on!!

They chose the stunning RSA House in central London for their wedding; a quietly imposing Georgian building set back from the hustle and bustle of the Strand on one side, and the Thames on the other.

The RSA is a true maze of stylish rooms, classic decor and cool secret vaults – Felicity and Chris made the most of all the space at this beautiful venue for their wedding, and we loved taking them away for some short strolls and precious time together in this diverse London setting.  Such a sweet, fun couple – it always makes our work so much easier knowing that we’re with people that just love being with each other, and that love and sense of fun together trumps all.

As I write this, Felicity and Chris will be lapping up the turquoise ocean and white sandy beaches of the Maldives (jealous much?!), and enjoying this little preview from their wedding day via our special app that we’ve sent them.  We look forward to sharing more soon! x

Luke and Emily met 6 years ago when he handed her his business card in a London city bar, and was pretty surprised when she called!!  The rest, as they say, is history.  Joey and I had a cracking time with these two over a glass of wine (or two?!) leading up to the wedding, so we were looking forward to a real treat of a wedding!
Emily and Luke’s wedding at Botleys Mansion oozed elegance and charm, perfectly in fitting with this regal mansion in Surrey and this gorgeous, lovely couple.
The clouds parted ways to bask the happy couple and their guests in glorious sunshine; coupled with oodles of bubbles and delicious food, what else could we have wished for!
The magnificent band Supatight took the evening to the next level (matched only by Emily and Luke handing out trays of shots to their guests…loving their style!!).
Emily and Luke, thank you for sharing your wonderful day with us and we hope you enjoy this little reminder of your day, soaking up the rays somewhere in Bali!!  Much love and we can’t wait to see you for your viewing in a few weeks’ time! x

Katie and Chris’ Town Hall Hotel wedding was the coming together of friends and family from all over the world – these two are serious international jet-setters and this awesome London venue certainly did their day justice!!

Katie and her girls had a relaxed morning getting ready in one of the Town Hall’s most gorgeous suites; what a treat.  Meanwhile, Chris and the boys had a cheeky drink at The Albion pub around the corner – one of the perks of a London wedding!

Their ceremony, drinks and evening reception were all under one roof which made the day flow seamlessly, but there are so many nooks and crannies of this incredible building that we loved exploring, and the fact that there are two restaurants within meant that Joey and I were totally spoilt when it came to the dinner; a delicious three course feast including scallops, pork belly and peanut butter three ways – my dream menu!!  We really do work with the most generous couples!

We hope you enjoy these photos from Katie and Chris’ gorgeous wedding day – if you’d like to see our preview selection of images from their wedding you can do so here, and you can also watch their little highlights film at the end of this post – enjoy!

Well, where do I start with this one!!  Claire and I go waaaaaay back…think Friends (when it was originally broadcast once a week!!), scrunchies, Kickers, sleepovers – all the highlights of the 90s!  We both loved Sea World (Claire the killer whales, I the dolphins) and said we’d be marine biologists when we grew up.  Well, one of us made it!!  I guess my semi-fear of animals held me back.  Anyway, here we are, a decade (or so!) later, and I can’t explain how much of an honour it was to see this gorgeous gal marry her lovely man Chris.

Chris is an incredibly talented cellist (you’ll have heard his accompaniments in many a film score) so of course there were fantastic musical treats all day long; from the groom himself at the organ in the church, to musicians treating the guests during the garden drinks reception, and their first dance personalised accompaniment.  What a feast for the ears!

Family means the world to these two, so it was extra special for them to be able to have their wedding in the garden of Claire’s parents’ house in Owslebury, just outside Winchester; a place that they can visit again and again, and reminisce about their beautiful day.

The happy couple are sunning it up in Corsica right now, but we wish them both all the very best for their future together, and here’s to more celebrations together in our dear Tooting! x

For the last week, I was tucked into a pocket of Wales with a hundred other photographers; each of us eager to keep pressing our work forward, united in our passion.

This little pocket of Wales is called Fforest. Doesn’t it make you think of tipis and fields, tall trees and secret quarries? Undiscovered paths, dappled sunlight, campfires with warming hands around it, marshmallows crisping, foraged food roasting, beers clinking, quiet dawn walks and a sunset wedding…and, most importantly, ideas being shared, words exchanged, stories, photos, life. It’s what you call “Inspired”.

Rewind to “my previous life” (one I would rarely mention to you as I can count the positive takeaways from it on one hand…), and the equivalent of last week in that world would’ve been a cold, stark hotel. A conference suite, corporate notepads adorned with that little green dot, deadlines, stress, and – worst of all – solitude. That tight grip that is ahold of you, the boa constrictor around your neck. All the things I didn’t want my life to be, and I could feel it slipping through my fingers.

Back to today, then. I say this all the time, out loud and to myself: I’m so utterly grateful for everything that I, we, now have. It’s not the “stuff”. It’s that which you can’t say, touch, hear or see. The intangible. Family, friendships, hopes, dreams, to infinity. I hope every day that I’m being more true to myself now than ever before, and the hundred or so others I spent the week with I think feel that too. There is nothing like surrounding yourself with positivity; people who will encourage, understand and lift your spirits. I know because I married one. Snap certainly brought these kind souls together for this short time. I spent much of last week looking up to the rich blue skies, thankful for my second chance at life.

So, we continue to go about our lives and businesses, but some lessons from the week that I hope remain with us:

Ian Sanders: What makes you tick?  Use that energy as a compass to lead you.

Oli Sansom: Don’t fixate on creating goals; create tangents through exploration, and goals will follow.

Jaye Cole: Create an efficient workflow; shave an hour off your scheduled day and you’ll increase your productivity.

Tara Gentile: Understand your own conditions for connection, and use that in your marketing.

Anna Naphtali: You are the creative director of your life; your experiences, things you’ve seen, heard and done will influence what you see and produce in an image.

Lukas Piatek: Allow a few minutes of quiet connection through eye contact at the start of the shoot.

Jacob Loafman: Don’t be afraid to try something new – experiment with new techniques and use what’s around you.

Alex James: We tend to focus on the tiny negative vs. huge amount of awesomeness; don’t let this blind spot control your vision and your life.

Whitesmoke Studio: Keep moving, keep shooting.

Rossella Vanon: The genius is in the execution, not in the idea.

Kevin Mullins: A wedding is not about us; clients should remember their view of the wedding, not ours.

Assassynation: Don’t be a dick!!

Petar Jurica: Break the rules.  Shoot the untraditional.  Light.  Atmosphere.  Emotion.

Gabe McClintock: Be in the moment; don’t move on until the actual image that needs to be captured, is captured.

Oh and one last, yet significant, thing; congratulations and thank you to darling Xeco & Rochan, who got engaged at Snap 2015 and married at Snap 2016 – what a beautiful, once-in-a-lifetime experience to be a part of.  With humble thanks and gratitude to all of the speakers and attendees at Snap, and to Laura Babb and her team for bringing this magical experience together and entwining long-lasting friendships.

Gemma and Jamie met online a few years ago while they were both working in London, after various stints working around the world.  They got engaged whilst on a weekend jolly to Rome (Jamie had planned to pop the question by the Trevi fountain but it was covered with scaffolding – nooo!).  Through the nerves, he presented Gemma with a beautiful ring nestled amongst her favourite Raphaello chocolates – so very sweet.

When Jamie and Gemma came round for their viewing of their wedding photos, we reminisced about the fact that it was almost exactly a year ago that we met each other, at the London Wedding Fair last April, just a few weeks after their engagement!  We’re so happy we did meet, as we’ve loved getting to know these two, and hope this is the beginning of a fun SW London friendship!

So back to the wedding day then, this lovely duo tied the knot in the sweet town of Godalming in Surrey, and guests then battled the wind to begin celebrations over at The Chichester Hall – Gemma did an amazing job with styling this blank canvas into a beautiful wedding setting, and they had the space for the whole weekend so the party continued for another day or so!!  Well, it’s got to be done when half of the wedding is travelling over from Ireland!  We also made one of our little wedding films for these two, you can watch that below – hope you like it!

All that’s left to say is a big thank you to Gemma and Jamie for inviting us into their lives and entrusting us with their unforgettable day.  We look forward to following your future adventures! X

A few words from lovely Gemma when we sent across their app:

“Aww Krish,

We’ve been so looking forward to seeing this preview! We’ve just been sipping passion fruit rum and gushing over the preview pictures.

You were such a welcome addition to our wedding day. Joey and yourself are such lovely people and made us and our guests feel at ease. We are so proud of our photos and can not wait to meet with you after the honeymoon to see the other pictures. You are so talented and have captured the mood of our wedding perfectly. We’re so happy that you both enjoyed the day too and we’re so delighted we not only chose the best photographers but that we got to enjoy your company after you knocked off too.

We’ve got the biggest smiles on Mauritius and are overwhelmed with how beautiful our pictures are. Can’t wait for our Tooting rendezvous. 

Xxx”

We are delighted to share some photos with you from Gemma and Jamie’s gorgeous wedding at the weekend – yes, it rained; yes, it was ridiculously windy (I think this wind had a name?) – but that didn’t stop these guys from having an unforgettable day!

Joey and I loved meeting Gemma and Jamie and getting to know them before the day; you couldn’t meet a more friendly couple and, with Jamie’s family coming over in convoy from Kerry for the long weekend, we knew their wedding was going to be full of laughter and cheekiness.  And it absolutely was!

They tied the knot in a a beautiful Church ceremony in Goldaming, and then whisked guests to the Chichester Hall nearby for drinkies and long-table feasting.  And what a feast it was!  We were honoured to be seated with guests (and have our names on the table plan!  Amazing!).

Thank you, Gemma and Jamie, for looking after us so well, and being so wonderfully naturally lovely!  Loved having a little boogie with you too!!

Enjoy this little taster and we look forward to sharing more photos soon!

This is a very special wedding to introduce to you as I’ve known the bride, Alyson, since I was 7 years old!  Yep, we were cheeky little brownies together back in Winchester, and went to the same senior school.  So it was extra special to be asked to photograph Aly’s wedding to the incredibly lovely David, just outside Winchester at the Clock Barn.

These two met at a hockey game over 11 years ago and have since set up home in Dubai.  Aly and David meticulously planned their wedding day to be a festive celebration, full of fun – from the fast-pased reflex game that broke many a sweat, to the fancy dress selfies for their guest book.

Much of the family flew over from South Africa for the wedding, so it was such a joyous occasion for everyone to come together and celebrate, and catch up and party!  We look forward to sharing more photos soon, but enjoy this selection to give you a flavour of their day.

Congratulations Aly & Dups – have a magical Christmas with your families! x

Some kind words from the lovely bride and groom: “You guys did an amazing job and we are so pleased you were able to share in the day with us. We had a ball (as can be seen in the photos) and hope you also enjoyed yourselves.  The photos really are fantastic – you both have a real gift for capturing the mood/emotion in your pics and half the time we didn’t even know you were shooting – we really couldn’t have asked for anymore!  THANK YOU!!!”
