Documentary Wedding Photographers
Hello! We are Simon and Hayley, an Essex Wedding Photography team, specialising in beautiful and natural documentary style wedding photography across Essex and Suffolk and surrounding counties.
We take a relaxed approach to our wedding photography, which enables us to capture the true atmosphere and emotion as your wedding day unfolds.
Our photo journalistic style coupled with our gentle organisation of all those special little group shots, always gives us the images to put together fabulous wedding albums that our Bride, Groom and families enjoy and cherish for a lifetime.
We have been photographing weddings in Essex and Suffolk together for over twenty years now and developed an unobtrusive and creative style of wedding photography.
Simon is a qualified Licentiate member of the Master Photography Association (LMPA) and Hayley has acheived an HND in Art and Design Photography.
We find every wedding a unique and very romantic day, which we love to capture at its best.
You, the Bride and Groom, take so much care and time into planning your perfect start to married life. We as your wedding photographers aim to capture these memories as perfect as the day you say "I do".
We offer a very relaxed and informal approach to wedding photography, mixed with a contemporary classic style.
It is our aim to capture the day's events as they unfold and provide you with a true story of your day. Working as a one or two photographer team, as required, we will concentrate on creating contemporary posed photographs and a selection of informal images, capturing you and your guests completely unaware!
Please contact us for our full range of prices.

Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot
Book a practice run before your big day!
Working with you before your big day is just as important as the day itself. It's a great way to get to know each other and really helps you to relax in front of the camera.
Most Pre-Wedding Shoots take place around 2-3 months before your wedding day and it's a great way to help you feel more comfortable in front of the camera and to get to know our shooting style.
For us, it's an opportunity to get to know more about you as a couple; your characters, how affectionate you are with each other, how formal or casual your styles are.
We really do understand the importance of your day and we want to capture amazing images of one of the most important days in your lives. Working on a Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot helps us to achieve that.

A totally unique product that everyone will want to look at and write a message in.
